    This is an ongoing struggle for me as well. I am listening to podcasts while walking the dog and don't have a free hand to adjust the volume. It's bad enough that some podcasts are louder than others... I can almost circumvent this with the custom (per podcast) audio boost; however, there are many podcasts where the volume shifts for advertisements, or a musical interlude, or when callers phone in, or dialogue shifts from interviewer to interviewee... and with these the only practical solution is to level the volume (using dynamic compression or by whatever means will do the trick). And this would be a godsend for listening to podcasts at night on a sleep timer... the worst is being woken up just after you drifted off to sleep by a sudden shift in volume.

    Yes! The worst are those podcasts where the volume shifts between a host and a guest (often speaking by phone) or in sudden outbursts of musical interludes.

    EDIT: a 1st beta will be available by the end of the day.

    FYI the Custom playlists will soon be improved.
    Filters will be available so the selected category can only show episodes based on their download status, played status, stared status, publication date, …
    I get it that some of you want multiple playlists were episodes can be manually added, but there’s no plan to implement this for now.
    However, according to the feedback I got by email, it looks like those filters will solve limitations of the current solution for most users.
    Feel free to send me some feedback by email if you have ideas for other filters that can be implemented (Settings/Feedback/Email)
    Thanks

    Agree wholeheartedly. The custom playlist option as implemented currently is far too restrictive, and doesn't play by the same rules as the regular playlist. Having multiple, named playlists would make life as a Podcast Addict so much better!

    In response to "How does this differ from using the volume buttons on your phone," the answer is simple: you don't always easily have access to the volume buttons. There are certain podcasts that you *know* are always too quiet or too loud; allowing a custom volume boost would allow you to set the volume at a level appropriate for the loudest podcasts, the custom boost those that are too quiet. If like me you listen to podcasts throughout the night (with the sleep timer function), such a customization would be hugely helpful.

    I will add a new setting in Settings/Player/Timer called ‘Allways ON’
    When enabled it will automatically start the sleep timer using the lastest timer settings when you start playing an episode

    Edit: there will be no time range for now

    I second the suggestion to automatically turn off the timer when connected by blue tooth. Or to allow a time range when it is in effect. Like the others, I use "Always ON" for sleeping to my podcasts, but then it becomes annoying while listening to them in the car or during walks. Not a huge deal, as pressing play resumes, but would make the Always ON feature perfect if we had one or both of these sub-options.
