      • Basic Youtube video tutorials !

        I've found NOTHING regarding uPod at youtube!!
        That way you ignore one of the most popular advertisement methods on this planet: the world of tutorials.

        Have searched a tutorial for my technophile mother (> 70yrs of age).
        Thx for listening and for your efforts to create that usefull app.

        Greetz from Germany :o)

          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…

        • Ability to toggle between podcast picture and notes on the playback screen

          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.

            • 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 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

                  • Dedicated list for skipped episodes

                    When I skip an episode in the playlist uPod moves it to the finished list.

                    Better put it to lets say the 'skipped' list. The playback position at the time of the skip is already remembered.

                    • 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.

                      • Bulk move for position of playlist episodes

                        It's very uncomfortable to put three or five episodes from button to top if the playlist is very long. It would be good to have the possibility to move a bulk of them to the top of the list in just one step.

                        • 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).

                                I would love to see how much total time a playlist is. Such as, I would like to see how much audio I have listened to in the "Finished" playlist, as well as how much total time I have in the "Unfinished" section. This one feature would be enough to move from PocketCasts to this.

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

                                        • 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.
