  1. Web app

    I know this app is still in beta, so this is a long term request, but I just want to put it out there. The purpose of a web app is so that I can access it anywhere, specifically on my computer, not just on my mobile devices.

      • Plug In for Automation Software like Tasker

              • Store podcasts in custom directory

                I'd like to use uPod in combination with Sonos (a system for streaming music over WLAN). Therefore the podcasts need to be stored in a certain folder (for more details see here: https://sonos.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/2198/~/playing-podcasts-wirelessly-from-your-android-device).

                It would be great if you could add an option to define a custom folder where the media files are stored. In my case it would be /mnt/sdcard/Podcasts (this is where the Sonos app looks for them).

                • swipe left/right to accept/decline new episodes

                  In the list of new episodes it would be nice to implement a swipe feature similar to that in gmail.
                  e.g. swipe on an episode to the left, it will be marked as "not new", swipe to the right and it will be added to the library.

                  As we all know and love your style, this would be of course adjustable in every manner to everybodies specific needs ;-)

                  Also an "undo" option like in Gmail should then be available

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

                    • Flattr support

                      Some podcast feeds embed information to throw their creator a coin using Flattr. This should be supported in uPod, both manually flattring a feed or single episodes as well automatically flattring after an episode has been listened to for X minutes.

                      Podcatchers currently supporting Flattr are AntennaPod and Podkicker Pro.

                      • make navigation panel always available

                        Nav panel (swipe in from left) currently only available when browsing (eg not from 'playing now'). Suggest make it universally available within the app, and perhaps also add 'now playing' and/or 'settings'.

                          When I try to add a podcast I have a pay subscription for uPod says the link isn't valid. Please add support for authenticated URLs.

                          • add categories for playlists

                            I would like to sort several feeds to their own playlist.
                            For example in categories like 'news', 'technologie' etc.
                            The different categories should be set feed by feed.

                            • Rename podcasts

                              Make it possible to rename podcast subscriptions. Some have pointless bits like the podcast network or MP3 in the title, I also like to remove "The" from the start of the podcast name so it sorts better alphabetically.

                              • Mark all as finished

                                Like you have a button at the top of the Inbox page for each podcast saying "save all as not new", it would be great to have a "mark all as finished" in the "unplayed section".

                                The reason being because new episodes are (rightly) marked as unfinished, but they can soon get high in number if you subscribe to a lot of podcasts. I personally prefer to not have a number showing how many podcasts I haven't listened to, and when I am ready for a podcast, I come back to it later, but it takes ages to mark each…

                                • Swipe/navigate from one episode's details page to the next

                                  More often than not I find myself checking every new episode's description/details page in order to decide which ones I want to listen to and which ones I want to skip.
                                  So in this scenario it would be very handy to have a simple swipe gesture (or a prev/next button) to get to the next episode in the inbox or in the library.
                                  Previously I used DoggCatcher where I found this specific feature to be tremendously helpful.

                                    • 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.

                                        • Add new episodes automatically to start of playlist

                                          There should be a subscription (podcast) specific option to automatically add new episodes of this podcast to the start of the playlist.
