App feature request: Can you add video to the Podcast section of the app?

In the Podcast section of the app you have all the podcasts (the last 100), which is awesome. When I select a podcast I get an option to stream the audio or download the MP3. I'm glad that both of those option are there, but I prefer to watch the video because you guys occasionally show something or joke about some visual. Could you add video to the Podcast section. I don't want to assume, but it seems like it would be pretty easy to embed the YouTube video just like when there's a YouTube video as part of an article.

Thoughts +Phil Nickinson +Mike Wolfson ?

EDIT: Even a link that opens externally to the YouTube app would be a big help. (And would give AC an opportunity to direct people to the YouTube channel so they could subscribe.)

+Jean-Paul Detiege It's clunky. We have to remember to add things to a playlist. 

Sometimes we forget.

Are you guys working to address the issue when changing orientation (landscape to portrait or vice versa) the app jumping back to the top of the story or list of stories? Or is it at least on the list of things to be fixed? That is the single most frustrating things about this app. Thanks.

Where is the "buy developer a beer" button?

Listening to +Mike Wolfson​ and +Phil Nickinson​ talk about the updated +Android Central​ app, while also playing with it in a multitasking window. I like the green and purple too, Phil. :)

It's really hard to swipe through the stories featured in the banner across the top. If your swipe isn't very fast (much faster than my usual swipes) then the original story snaps back to center. This isn't new with the Material redesign; it's been an issue for a while; not sure if it's been reported though.

Is anyone else experiencing this?

It seems to be only right to left a wipe causing a problem. Works fine going in the other direction. Had this problem on the original app too.

It seems to me that Apple is failing to create a compelling use case for the Apple Watch. Hear me out. First, let me say that I really like the idea

I've been having an issue. When I click on a external link, the app opens it in the Android "Browser" app instead of Chrome which is set as my default. This is on a Sprint Galaxy Nexus running Cyanogenmod 11 nightlies (4.4).

I've just did it +Phil Nickinson. To help fixing this, links in articles open in Chrome but using the Open in Browser top right menu opens in the stock browser.

The "Best Android Phones of 2015" article shows up white even when in night mode. (The attached picture is with night mode turned on.) I suspect that's because the formatting of this article requires that it's just a web view within the app, but when using night mode in a dark room, clicking a link, and then getting the bright white, it's pretty jarring. (Also raises the question of why all AC articles aren't formated the same, but that's outside the scope of this group.) 😉

Anyway I guess this isn't really a bug, but I hope it's something that yall are working on.

That kind of article is an outlier because of how we do it.

OK. The icon for the "Mark all articles as read" function needs to be more obvious. I had no idea what that button would do, so I hit it. Just lost all my read/unread information. Gggrrrrrr! :(

Did add a dialog (persistent, unless user checks to never see it again).

Android question: Is there any way to download an APK from the Play Store for an app that I purchased?

When I purchased it, the Play Store said that it was compatible with my phone, but now it says it's not, so I can't re-download it.

If found a few tools that will let you download APKs for free apps. But nothing that works for paid apps, even if they have been purchased.

Can anyone help? +Android Central +Phil Nickinson +Jerry Hildenbrand +Alex Dobie +Andrew Martonik

I've been to Pit Stop a couple of times and got good service both times. They do very thorough full car assessments, and are moderately priced. I would go back.
