You will find no skins or pretty buttons in this app. It was made to be low overhead and efficient. Ever tried using a slider bar to skip around in a 2 hour podcast? This app uses buttons so you can skip to where you want. The pause/resume is oversize and at the top so you can use it in your car's cup holder. It can delete the mp3 after you have listened to it. It wont lose your position like other podcast players.
This app does not download podcasts. It only plays them.
READ_PHONE_STATE - so it can know when to automatically pause for incoming calls.
WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE - so it can optionally delete the podcast files after you listen to them.
WAKE_LOCK - so your device wont go to sleep in the middle of a long podcast.
I had planned on finishing the $1 version that had these extra features, but then we had a baby, and my spare time is non-existent now!
IF I EVER FIND THE TIME AGAIN, this is what the $1 will have:
1. play entire folder
2. night mode
3. pause/resume on headphone plug/unplugged
4. force screen to stay portrait or landscape
5. progress bar
6. sleep timer
7. more languages
8. adjustable playback speed
