Differentiate Already-Listened Podcasts From New Podcasts

First of all, thank you for a wonderful and full-featured app. I use DoggCatcher every day and love it!

My request is for a feature that seems so obvious that I feel I must be missing something.

When I'm looking at the list of podcasts within a feed, there are only three distinctions made: (1) podcasts that are downloaded and ready for listening have the 'play' arrow beside them; (2) podcasts that are in-progress have the progress bar; and (3) podcasts that are either newer than the three I have downloaded at a time, or are old, have the 'down' arrow beside them.

What I would like is to have some visual indicator to show which OLD podcasts I've listened to, and which I haven't.

The typical scenario is this:

* I subscribe to a new feed. Say the feed currently has 30 episodes.
* Doggcatcher downloads episodes 28, 29 and 30.
* I start listening to episode 28 and work my way up to 30.
* In the meantime the feed has published episodes 31 and 32, so I listen to those too.

Now at episode 32 I'm caught up, and I like the feed, so I want to go back and listen to old episodes. I've listened to episode 28 already, so I would like to go back to episode 27.

My problem is this: there's no visual distinction between episodes 27 and 28!

Can't DoggCatcher remember what I've listened to, so that I don't have to remember myself?

Thanks again for a great app.

I can't think of a way to do

I can't think of a way to do that other than setting 27 and earlier to new. DC tracks the episode state as new/inprogress/done. It seems what you are looking for is tracking of what has been played, which we don't do at the moment.

Thanks for posting.
