How to get better descriptions in a virtual feed

I've got a virtual feed for a podcast (Fresh Air) to a folder on my SDCard. I want to download on my in iTunes and then copy those when I want to whatever Android I want. But the feed files show only the file name. Is there a way for the app to get the descriptions from the mp3 and show the descriptions instead of the filename, or in addition to?

I see that dev issue 0001540

I see that dev issue 0001540 was posted just a few days ago on this exact subject, which would indicate to me that there is not a solution for this, and that it might be added in the future. If anyone knows anything else on this, please let me know. Otherwise, this is a show-stopper for me, and though the product quality and features are really great, hmmmmm...... On the other hand, I could download the podcasts using Doggcatcher, and then import them into iTunes for my iPod. Wish I did not have to buy a separate copy for my Android phone.... May have to think about that...

With a little more searching,

With a little more searching, I found a PC application that does the renaming, and will give me what I want, after some fooling around. Tagscanner - http://www.xdlab.ru/en/index.htm I have no idea as to its virus-ness, etc (.ru) , but it seems pretty up to date and has some good features.

Thanks for reporting back, we do have it on the todo list to pull the id3 tags from the media files to use as the title for virtual episodes.
