Does RSSPlayer play podcasts in succession?

The answer is YES!

This question has been coming up for the past few weeks more than ever so I figured it’s time to clear up the exact process.

You must enable this feature (enabled by default) by pressing the loop icon (see image) in the details screen.

RSSPlayer WILL continue to the next podcast until the end of the queue. The queue is created in 1 of 3 ways, automatically, depending on how you navigate the application and begin to play a podcast.

1) You start from the My Favs tab, select a podcast that has 10 items. (Items are ordered newest to oldest). So you select the most current episode, episode 10. At this point, the queue is created and will contain episodes 9 – 1 and they will play in succession one after another until episode 1 is played. Then the app will stop.

2) You start from Agenda tab. The agenda tab IS the queue so any time you select a podcast item and being to play it, RSSPlayer will continue to the next item in the list until it plays the entire agenda list. Remember that the Agenda tab can be sorted and re-ordered any way you like.

3) You start the application and it opens directly to the details screen with the large image and the play button. The queue is created from the Agenda tab (not visible at this time) and RSSPlayer will play from the top most item down. Similarly to scenario 3.

I am always looking to improve this process so if you have any ides or suggestion, please email me and feel free to add this information to the RSSPlayer wiki at
