What a lovely app you've built! It works exceptionally well at handling the numerous series I partake in. I have only one issue; occasionally while an episode is playing, the progress bar on the lockscreen widget won't continue. It won't show the correct minute I'm currently listening to nor will the progress line move. A simple work around is pressing pause then play, but it'd be nice if I didn't need a workaround.
My suggestions/requests for a "better" user experience have likely been considered before, but I've yet to see them implemented..
1. I'd like to be able to mass-delete downloaded episodes. It's simply too tiresome to have to select an episode and tap three times to delete it. Please add a simple trash can icon in the "Downloads" section which will enable selecting of multiple episodes.
2. Please implement more sorting techniques within each series. Currently the options are "old to new" and "new to old." I'd like to see the ability to sort by episode temporal length "shortest to longest" and "longest to shortest" as well as by file size "largest to smallest" and "smallest to largest."
3. Episode Search! The tool in the main interface which allows one to search for each show is handy, but I'd like to see a per-show episode search tool. Perhaps a "Search for Episodes" option could be placed amidst each show's tri-dot overflow key functions.
4. Add Offline Mode. Although there is a downloads list, it can difficult to scroll through such a long list. Perhaps a "Google Play Music"-esque switch in the menu could be enabled so that when viewing a series, only downloaded episodes would be shown.
5. Colour adaptive show badges, please! This is somewhat minute, but having every shows episode-count flag be red is less aesthetically pleasing than flags that are able to match with the most prominent colour of the series' cover art.
Whew! That's a lot, and I understand and accept that it may take a while for the team to implement all of these features (if they appeal to the team at all). I am thankful, however, for your commitment to building a spectacular podcast app.
