      Unfortunately currently I cannot make any recommendations for Android podcast players. I'm not aware of anyone implementing the inbox pattern.

        Agree that this would be better.

        As a workaround you can stop the playback to make the notification disappear. You can do this directly in the notification in expanded mode. Hint: By default Android displays notification in collapsed mode. Swipe down on a notification to expand it. The uPod notification will then provide additional actions including the stop button. Hit it to stop playback and the notification will be dismissed.

          I also like the idea. Unfortunately currently I haven't enough time for uPod.

            @Matthias: To be honest, I don't think, that the web app will ever come. Maintaining the Android app is already hard enough in the little free time I have. Creating and maintaining an additional web app is unrealistic at the moment.

            AdminSven Wiegand (CEO, uPod) commented  · 

            @Martin Grossert: Might be. We are currently in dialog.

            AdminSven Wiegand (CEO, uPod) commented  · 

            The problem is, that Feedly is a news reader and not a podcast player. Things like playlist simply don't exist and so I think it wouldn't be a good choice.

            AdminSven Wiegand (CEO, uPod) commented  · 

            The provided link looks quite interesting unfortunately I can't try it at the moment as GitHub blocked the downloads. Looking forward to this, but in the end it won't be a replacement for a real web app.

            AdminSven Wiegand (CEO, uPod) commented  · 

            Developing Google Chrome apps is completely different from developing Android apps, so unfortunately no easy solution here...

            AdminSven Wiegand (CEO, uPod) commented  · 

            OK, I see that a website for managing and listening/watching podcasts is the most wanted feature. But this is a big one that will require a lot of work. For now I will continue to concentrate on the Android app. So you will need a little patience.

            AdminSven Wiegand (CEO, uPod) commented  · 

            @Philip: Ah okay, got it :-) Maybe here a "remote control feature" in the android app to control the playback on another device would be more suitable. But nevertheless this feature sounds like far away future ;-)

            AdminSven Wiegand (CEO, uPod) commented  · 

            @Philip: And your phone is not an Android device? Because if it is you could simply install uPod their?

            AdminSven Wiegand (CEO, uPod) commented  · 

            @Philip: Why mobile optimized? Isn't the app more adequate for this?

              Thanks for the explenation. So it should be possible for uPod to select an USB storage location for episode's media files.

              AdminSven Wiegand (CEO, uPod) commented  · 

              What do you mean by "podcasts on stick"? What exactly do you have on your stick? The media files (MP3s)? How did they come onto the stick? Using uPod?

                  Got it.

                  The second part is already there: Bring up the podcast's episode list and select "Mark finished from here" from the episode's menu within in the list to mark this episode and all below (depends on the sorting) as finished.

                    This should be definitely an option and should not be enabled by default. I am using a Bluetooth headset and listen to podcasts in the morning and audio books in the evening. So I don't want to resume uPod automatically when Bluetooth reconnects.

                      @Manu: Understood. The main issue of the flattr integration is the authentication process -- the rest is relatively straight forward. Will take a look into this by time...

                        Did you know, that the current fast forward/rewind buttons are also only jump buttons and that you can configure for them a jump for e.g. one minute?

                        Would that solve your request or do you want the minute jumps in addition?

                          I've updated the title and description to what I think would better match uPod's approach and solve the issue nevertheless.

                          Not sure if I got this correctly: Is it about a stopmark, then please vote for http://upod.uservoice.com/forums/227846-general/suggestions/5299871 instead. Or is it about ordering episodes on the playlist? The latter one is already possible. Simply tap on the drag indicator below the episode's image and drag it to the playlist position you want.

                            The playback position is already remembered.

                              @Philip: Understand this :-) But uPod heavily relies on the meta data it receives from the feeds...
