  1. optimize the player screen for large screens

    I use a 5.5 inch smartphone (OnePlus 5), and I figure most of the smartphones nowadays have screen sizes of above 5 inches, especially the flagships.

    In the player screen, the buttons for playlist access, episode description, starring and sharing are on the top of the screen.

    I would suggest to put those buttons to the thumb comfort zone, as described here: https://www.lukew.com/ff/entry.asp?1927

      I am new to uPod, used BeyondPod before. I would like to use "add to playlist" action as a default for any podcast episode, no matter if it is new or old.

        • Add support for Android Auto

          Now that Android Auto is more widely available, it would be nice to be able to use uPod through it's interface.

          • Downloaded Tab should show all downloaded episodes

            The downloaded Tab shows only episodes which are downloaded and unfinished. But there should be an option to show all episodes which are available offline regardless of their playbackstatus.

            • Enhanced sharing of episodes (e.g. clips)

              It would be a nice feature to press a recording button when listening to an podcast episode and to send it afterwards to a person (sharing option e.g. WhatsApp or email, etc.).

              On top it would be nice if uPod also creates some meta information like:

              Podcast + Episode name + (if existing) chapter name + recorded time (of podcast episode) beginning + recorded time (of podcast episode) ending + URL of episode

              Example:
              Raumzeit | RZ062 Albert Einstein | Beweis der Allgemeinen Relativitätstheorie | 01:12:49 to 01:18:32 | http://raumzeit-podcast.de/2016/05/12/rz062-albert-einstein/

                  • Add a "play in mono" option

                    Some podcasts are recorded in stereo which can drive you crazy while listening with in-ears or can make it impossible to understand all if you only use one in-ear, e.g. on the bicycle. So the possibility to play everything in mono would be very helpful

                      One tip: I use a Plantronics BackBeat Fit. It is an bluetooth headphone optimized for sports. It keeps the ear open, so that you can hear everything around you. I use it for running, racing bike, mountain biking and — most important — biking to work: 34 km each day in heavy Berlin traffic.

                        Hm, don’t really understand what you need here. Can you please clarify? Do you want a podcast’s list to be reloaded on request? Then bring up the list of podcasts for an episode and swipe down until the refresh indicator appears.

                      • Add a timeline view for the finished episodes intent

                        Show time a episode got finished and sort accordingly. Extra would be to choose a point in time and reset the playlist to the state at this time. Would be helpful when your playlist got drained by falling asleep.

                          If playback was stopped when bluetooth disconnected, it should resume when reconnected. I have to manually start uPod when it connects to my car.

                          • Support for podcasts listened from beginning

                            I have some podcasts with audiobooks. I listen it from oldest episodes to newest ones, because episode freshness doesn't matter and because some books are splitted into several episodes which must be listened in order. uPod have ability to show episodes from oldest to newest, but it still shows last episode as new while there are lot of old unlistened ones. And it is necessary to have option "mark N first episodes as funished" during subscription.

                            • playlist screen defaults back to new podcasts (if any), if not then to My Podcasts screen

                              I use the Inbox mode to have new podcasts delivered to the “New” section. There I pick and choose which I’d like to download to listen to later, those that I do not want to download I use the check mark button to mark all finished to have them removed from the new section. What I then have is a list of podcasts I intend to listen to in my “Saved for later” section. Here I typically click on one to play, which then starts the podcast. When the podcast is over uPod presents me with a “Your playlist is…

                                      Have searched a tutorial for my technophile mother (> 70yrs of age).

                                        Understood. Unfortunately building a good youtube tutorial is time consuming and as if this is a free time project I invest most of the time for development and support.

                                        Further on I do not have any youtube experience. So if someone from the community would be willing to provide a video I would be quite happy…

                                        Hello. I would like to offer a suggestion for a tweak to the playback interface. I listen to a lot of music podcasts. Many of them come with a list of the artists/songs that are featured in the podcast in the notes. With the current version of uPod when I am playing the podcast and want to know the name of the song playing I click on the little sheet icon to access the notes. When I do this I lose full playback control, the only option is to click at the bottom of the app to get back to…

                                        • OPUS support and an option to choose the file format

                                          To save the little storage on my phone I'd like to use the OPUS format for the podcasts. Most podcasts I listen to are providing OPUS files, but upod crashes when I try to play them. Can you add support for playing OPUS files?

                                          Maybe its possible to add an option to choose the downloading file format, too.

                                          Many Thanks.
