Mode To Add To Playlist

Maybe I'm the only one, but I create a playlist before every driving trip that's more than about an hour.

Right now, adding items to a playlist is pretty heinous: too many actions, too much time per entry... it just takes too long.

Check out the way iTunes does it:

- User clicks something like "Edit Playlist" and the
app goes into "Edit Playlist" mode.

- From then on, the user just navigates to an item and
taps it to add it to the playlist in question

- When all desired items have been added, the user
clicks "Done".

Have you looked at the

Have you looked at the dynamic playlists? You might be able to set those up such that you don't need to do anything at all.

I need it too

Come on Eric, thats not a very nice answer. Just have checkboxes or something to select which items to influence. Its a standard UI-principle. Do I really have to write my own podcatcher?

In many regards your UI is not thoroughly thought through. But this is the most annoying one to me, too!

I was suggesting the best way I could think of that would achieve close to what the user was requesting with the current functionality.

However, I definitely see a need for better bulk operations. I just added an issue to do bulk operations on episodes. There have been a couple of other requests that were similar, I think we can knock them all out with this - http://mantis.snoggdoggler.com/view.php?id=1579

Thanks for the feedback.

Depends on how it's done.

The user will want to hop around from feed-to-feed adding an episode from, say, 'NPR Story Of The Day', then one from 'The Moth Podcast', and then maybe a few from 'RadioLab'...

If the user can only do the adds from one feed at a time, it's not going to work.

OTOH, if somebody were to approximate the iTunes method...
