  1. Auto Sleep timer with snooze by shaking phone

    The title says it all.
    I usually fall asleep at night listening to podcasts.

    Having to turn on the sleep timer every time and manually restart it when the time's up is quite inconvenient, specially at night.

    When the sleep timer is about to go off, let the user shake the phone to restart the countdown.
    Can you make this please? I'm using another podcast client just because of this.
    Thanks

                • Make the desktop website remember the view settings I selected for my subscriptions.

                  It's very irritating to have to re-select the settings I want whenever I want to view my subscriptions. For example, I like to have my subscriptions in the "Cards" mode on the website but it always revert back to the "List" mode as default.

                  • Add the ability to start a podcast at X seconds from the beginning, where X is set by the user for each individual podcast.

                    Many podcasts have standard intros, or ads at the beginning of the podcast. I want to be able to set the player to start playing each episode after that point.

                      I know its an early beta, but player.fm wont authenticate via google account for some reason in android N. No matter how many times one attempts, it succeeds in logging in, then says your servers can't authenticate me, and forces the user into a login page auto login, failed error message loop.

                      • Do not start playing when bluetooth headset connects

                        I use a bluetooth headset with my Android phone.
                        Any time my phone connects via bluetooth with my headset, Player FM will start playing.

                        The app has no way of knowing if I'm actually listening when the headset connects. That's why it should wait for a press of the play button. It should only start playing on headset connection if
                        1) it was playing previously and got disconnected
                        and
                        2) it hasn't been very long since disconnect (like 5-20 seconds)

                        It's very frustrating to discover Player FM has played through a few hours worth of several podcasts when I wasn't…

                          • Provide stars and ratings to itunes

                            Many podcasts I listen to ask to leave stars and ratings in iTunes as apparently this is the place to be to be found.
                            Currently I'm considering downloading the damned thing just so I can leave my ratings.

                            Is it possible to push feedback and ratings from player.fm to iTunes?
                            Not sure if this is possible at all as I don't know how open iTunes is.

                            • show the actual date podcast was published

                              Currently the date a podcast is published is shown as "2 days ago" or "nearly 2 years ago". It would be great to be able to see the actual date somewhere even it if is just by mousing over the "2 days ago" or making it a setting.

                              "2 days ago" isn't so bad but "nearly 2 years ago" isn't that helpful especially on a weekly podcast where there are a whole bunch showing the same thing.

                                  • I suggest you keep on doing what you're doing!

                                    I began using your Android app a few months ago, only realizing that you had a desktop website a few weeks ago.
                                    Instead of bookmarking and keeping track of all the different podcasts I listen to, you've simplified things greatly.
                                    I know video is all the rage, but there are a lot of manual tasks that I do on a daily basis the require my hands, but not my brain. Listening to a podcast fills that mental vacuum.
                                    So, thank you, and keep on doing what you're doing!

                                      A simple 30/60/90 min timer. I know a few people (including myself) that listen to podcasts when they're trying to sleep, and that usually means we only listen the first 30min-1h of the podcast, and then the rest would be still playing and wasting the phone charge.
                                      Also, with this timer it'd prevent the software from marking the podcast as played when we didn't listen to it completly

                                      • Mark episode as listened to when only a tiny fraction of it is unlistened and is being skipped

                                        Most of the technical casts I listen to have a closing theme song and some thanks to the guests and sponsors. I'm not really interested in those and I skip to the next podcast when I hear it starting.
                                        Right now I also have to manually mark the episode as listened.

                                        I suggest that if a podcast has only x seconds still unlistened and is being skipped over, the cast is marked as read.
