dogg catcher improvements


I’ve discovered doggcatcher one month ago. It’s a good software with nice features. I would like to share with view my wishes in order to make dogcatcher a perfect app (in my opinion);

-If there is something that makes me bad it the feeds windows. When I update my feeds I never know what podcasts are new or not. Sometimes dogcatcher download automatically the feeds, sometimes no. It’s not easy to know. That’s why I update each feed manually. I would like more control on my feeds update

My solution: After pushing on “update feeds” dogcatcher open a new window with all new episodes. On this window you can select one/all episode and download them manually/automatically. This way is better because you know what’s is new and what’s it’s not.
By a long press on a episode you can set it as “new” (to show it at the next update), “old” (to not display it at the next update) etc.

-I’m obliged to use an external player (Mortplayer) because integrated player is good. There are some features wich are missing.

My solution: add basic features in integrated dogcatcher player:
-allow bookmarks! I think I’m not the only one who want this feature
-save playing position
-create a window for the player. A small bar is not very easy to use. I prefer a windows with all controls you can use on a player.

I have a lot of ideas and these two above are the most important in my opinion. Thank you for read me (sorry for my English)

All the feeds will update at

All the feeds will update at the same time and you'll see a blue number on each feed with the number of items that are new. You can also press on a feed to go to all the items for that feed and then on the left there are different colored balls indicating new/in progress/old (blue/green/grey). In the menu on that screen, you can hide the done items, so you'll only see new and in-progress items.

Bookmarks - that's on the todo list
Saving play position - it does that now, although some people have had problems on some custom roms
Window for player - this is also on the todo list

Thanks for the feedback.
