    Do you mean a synchronized local folder or content dropbox / drive cloud ?

    The app only supports RSS feeds. This is an Atom feed not a RSS feed ;)

    I'm not sure if that's what you're looking for but the next version will allow you to play local files with the app. You will then be able to use the app playlist with both podcasts and local files. Another solution might be to crate a virtual podcast. To do so, press the + button to add a podcat and select 'Virtual folder'. Finally select a folder on your device. Then every files within this folder will be detected as 'episodes' and you will be able to listen to them with the app player/playlist

    The clock is a sleep timer.
    You don't have to use every feature available on the screen ;)
    There won't be additional settings to show/hide buttons in every screen

    What you discribe is the current behaviour of the app. If the headset or the BT receiver disconnects while the app has lost audio focus (because of the ringing), then the playback won't resume automatically

    Are you talking about new podcasts added to the app database or new episodes from your subscriptions ?

    Ok. But it looks too much specific to be integrated into the app... ;)

    Those information comes from the RSS feed, not from the file meta data.

    This is the normal behavior.
    Automatic download is for new episodes, so it won't download anything the first time you refresh your feed. If you want you can download the last episode manually or a selection or every one of them.

    Please stop commenting if it's just to repeat the exact same thing. You already explained your point of view and I already have 10 emails with the exact same information.
    Now wait for people vote so it can became a popular suggestion.
    I will remove new comment that just repeat the exact same thing.
    I think everyone got your point

    And please stop calling that new behavior a bug. Please go back to my last 10 emails or to my previous comments on this suggestion. I already explain this is the intended behavior, so it's NOT A BUG.
    I get it that you disagree, but this is the way I implement it so it cannot be called a bug. Call it a poor choice if you want to, but it's not a bug.

    Because the app you're using (Google Navigation/waze) isn't using the correct audio focus request type. The 'ducking' type should only be used for really short audio burst.(http://developer.android.com/training/managing-audio/audio-focus.html#HandleFocusLoss)
    Ducking request means other app should keep plaing at a lower volume in the background. I added a setting so the app will stop/resume playback in that case, but it's not the standard behavior.

    This kind of ducking behavior is intended for sms, email, ... short notification
    That's why I disable this feature. I get it that you're talking about your navigation notigication, I'm just saying it also trigger the autorewind in case of other kind of short notification like SMS and email which is annoying.

    No need to keep arguing about this here. I already spend a lot of time explaing over and over by email why I changed it and how audio focus and priority work on android.
    I don't intend to continue arguing here.
    Now let other users vote for this feature if they think this is a good idea.

    After our 10+ emails exchange I will explain this feature behavior one more time:
    Auto rewind still works the exact same way than before EXCEPT in case of 'DUCK audio focus lock' which is google technical term to describe a really short notification (less than 2s)
    It means that now the app won't autorewind 10s (or more) every time you got a SMS, email notification or every time you take a picture.
    Users were complaining about the previous behavior so I fixed it. I don't think having a 1s notification will make you lose track of your listening.
    Anyway now that I explained how it works feel free to vote for this feature if you find it necessary.

    Sorry but I don't understand what you're asking. You're asking to define a specific player per podcast ? Is that correct ?

    OK so if i allow you to select 10 hours refresh rate it should be OK, right?

    But those are not the same information. Some users stream their episodes, other download just a few episodes not all of them, so those notifications make sense.
    FYI you can disable the notification you don't need in settings/notifications

    Hi,

    I'm not sure about any guidelines talking about a single notification per app. In case of Podcast addict that won't be possible. Some notifications must be displayed on their own like the player notifications. Others when pressed open different screens so I don't think merging all of them will be useful.
