Does this program support resume on multiple tracks?

I have found that most of the podcast apps out there let me resume the position of a podcast when I exit and enter the program but I am running into a problem in that if I switch between podcasts it starts over when I return to one I have already started.

Will Doggcatcher let me listen to part of one podcast, switch to another, listen to part of that, and then if I switch back to the first it will resume from the point I left off, not from the start?

Yes, it does!

I've got three podcasts in various states of being listened to at the moment, and when I start any of them they start up a few seconds before the point where I left off when I listened to them last.

That is quite normal as it

That is quite normal as it would use too much resources to write the status every second.

See, I saw it as a feature

See, I saw it as a feature and not a performance compromise: when I come back to a podcast, I don't want to come back exactly where I left off. I want to come back a little bit BEFORE I left off so I can re-establish my context.

If you like it, then it's...

If you like it, then it's definitely a feature :-)

If you don't exit the app, it should resume pretty much where you pause it, unless the audio encoding prohibits it.

If you exit the app, then it can resume some number of seconds prior to where it was paused, for the reason Karolis stated, it doesn't save to the db but every 15 or 30 seconds...don't remember which.
