Escapepod is a podcast player with a minimalistic approach, that may not
be to everyone's liking. The app has only a single screen. Playback
controls and a list of podcasts that shows the five most recent episodes
each. Escapepod has no podcast discovery feature. It only offers a very
simple search option and it opens RSS podcasts links when you tap them
in a web browser.
DOES ESCAPEPOD HAVE PLAYBACK QUEUE? Escapepod
has a simple up-next feature. Tap play on an episode while listening to
another one. You will be be given the opportunity add it to the up-next
WHAT ARE THE DEFAULT SETTINGS? - Auto-update does not download files over cellular network - Escapepod by default only keeps two episodes
ESCAPEPODS KEEPS MORE THAN TWO EPISODES. Escapepod tries to reduce the number of episodes it keeps. Here are the rules for that: - Escapepod keeps the latest two episodes - Episodes, that have been started, or that have been downloaded manually, are kept, too - the maximum number of episodes available (and kept) is five
DOES ESCAPEPODS SUPPORT OMPL? You
can import a podcast list using the OPML exchange format. Just open an
OPML file using a file manager and choose Escapepod as the handler. The
current podcast collection can be exported via Settings. Addionally
Escapepod keeps an up-to-date OPML file in the folder
I CAN NOT ADD PODCAST X. Please
report any podcast feeds, that are currently not working, using the
GitHub Issue template "Feed Issue"
(https://github.com/y20k/escapepod/issues/). Note: Escapepod does not
support video podcasts.
WHERE DO THE PODCAST SEARCH RESULTS COME FROM? Escapepod
searches the gpodder.net (https://gpodder.net/directory/) online
database. Gpodder.net is a great page, if you are looking for new stuff
to listen to, BTW.
