add a toggle to disable updates/downloads, or respect system Sync setting

The use case for this is that, although in many cases checking Limit Downloads to "on WiFi" and "on Power" works pretty well, more than once I have been connected to airplane wifi and needed to charge my phone, and then DoggCatcher starts trying to download podcasts over GoGo and hilarity ensues.

It would be nice if there were some way to pause/disable downloads; ideally it seems like Doggcatcher should respect the system-level setting of whether sync is enabled or not. Otherwise it would be nice to have a toggle to disable/pause network activity regardless of WiFi or power state.

WiFi

I would change the "Feed update interval" to once (1 Day) or twice a day (12 hrs) and the "Feed update time" to a specific time you're on a home or office WiFi network, also disable "Update feeds on start" (In the DC Navigation Menu>Settings>Global Feed Options)
