I love this app and the degree to which I can customize it. It takes some time to figure out all the settings, but once I did it worked like a dream. I sent in a feature request through the feedback option and Xavier got back to me the very next day and walked me through setting up exactly what I asked for but couldn't figure out. I've never experienced such fast and helpful support from an app developer before. Thank you! 3yrs in Update: I appreciate the regular feature updates!

Tried to like it. Came here when Pocket Casts lost their mind. They've since relented so I went back to Pocket Casts. PA has a lot of good features but it is a disorganized mess. It is riddled with mode errors. Settings are a mess, scattered here, there and everywhere. Sometimes you can't find the setting you want because you can't see it if you are in the wrong mode. Podcast Addict is a case study in how not to build a user interface. Devs should read Don Norman's The Design of Everyday Things.

All the app settings are available from a unique settings page. Everything is organized by category like 'display', 'download', 'player'... There's also a search field to find any setting you need to quickly. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions (Settings/feedback) Thanks

This used to be a good app. A recent update introduced a bug where the player in the pull-down menu refuses to show. The dev was quick to blame me and/or Android for disabling settings that allow the player to be displayed, despite me sending him screenshots showing all needed settings were enabled. Now each time this app gets an update, I have to go into system settings & disable things that were already enabled then re-enable them several times just to get the player to show up.

Android is now in charge of displaying the media notification. There's no setting to change in the device when you update the app and nothing to do to get the player notification displayed UNLESS at some point you disable the app notifications or mute this one
