Change color of status dot when cast is downloaded and available

I chose your product because you DIDN'T include the word POD in the title. They aren't podcasts. They're webcasts and always have been.
Earth is getting older. None of us can see easily. Your triangle play icon under the cast status icon is not legible. Instead, you need to change the color from a blue dot to something else to indicate which subscriptions in a feed have the file ready to play.
--------------
1. Add a search feature to the requests forum if it doesn't exist. We don't have time to review all the entries. If that's difficult, categorize your requests by type, and offer a means of filtering by category to learn whether a request exists.
2. When creating an account, after clicking to verify your email, you DO NOT switch to https to create the password. AYKM? This is 2016 boys. Git 'er done on security. Don't understand? listen to SecurityNow cast by Steve Gibson.
3. Never EVER refer to anything streaming and internet as "POD". Those who choose to control their technology will hunt you down. :-)

Color of status

Eric (DC developer will respond later today or tomorrow, in the meantime
You can change the size of triangle play icon from your device accessibility font settings

1. Add a search feature to the requests forum - try using the "View Issues" tab from the Mantis bug tracker site that we use to track feature requests

2. When creating an account (Eric will respond)

Device Accessibility changes

Device Accessibility changes fonts for all Apps. Color is independent of size and easily discerned in all light levels. The unavailable Feeds are grey. Queued Feeds are blue. Downloaded Feeds should have a dot or be yet a different color. Older people dominate the age distribution and with contacts, we can't see the triangle, especially on the road when the device is in s cradle and we want to educate ourselves instead of suffer the election news.

Larger fonts means less viewable content, and DC already doesn't show enough synopsis of episodes (unless there's a setting to display more of the description of cast subject?) Having to navigate to show notes is inconvenient when deciding whether to Force Download of a cast.
Lose the play triangle altogether make the Status Dot bigger, change its color, and also change its shape to a green triangle meaning its playable. Might get you past only 100K downloads...

Will check the Forum "View Issues" feature.

Font Size

Changing the font size was just a suggestion to temporarily resolve the problem until Eric responds, you can also access the description of episodes by enabling the "Car-Mode/Now playing" screen - Press on feed thumbnail on bottom left of the screen on the media control bar>press the "Show Notes" icon (2nd icon from right top of the screen)

Additionally all downloaded media (Audio/Video) is also located on the audio and video tabs
