Force Download

I love the fact that I can tell my DC to only download when I'm connected to a power source or WiFi...but there are those occasions when I'm on the go and I'd just like to grab a single podcast here or there without downloading my whole queue.
It would be nice if a long press on a podcast had the option to "Force Download" which would temporarily override the restrictions that I have set to only download on power/wifi and download that single podcast immediately OTA. This would keep us from having to go into the options menu and deselect the options, download the single podcast, then redo our settings...this scenario can be even more troublesome if our download queue is full and it just starts grabbing everything it can.

Thanks again Eric!

Override 'only on' settings

Yep, that's happened to me plenty of times too. I already have an issue for this, I'll see if I can get it in one of the next few releases.

Thanks for the feedback.

RE: force download feature request

Just started using the app, love it, however immediately ran into this and ended up here to request it.

Nice to see it's been requested but doh five years and waiting so far :(

hope you can add it sooner rather than later, a simple popup confirming override defaults and download now would suffice.

It's really a pain to have to go into options and temp disable power only etc...

thanks for the great app

Download queue shows 'waiting

Download queue shows 'waiting for wifi' but i do see a purple icon appear and increment, and it downloads, thanks. It's the 'waiting for wifi' that made me think it wasn't working, also it took me a while to figure out how to tell if episodes were on disk or not (gray play icon)

maybe status could be changed to "force updating / waiting for wifi" or something.

Something a little bit easier to spot at a glance then the tiny gray play icon would be nice to indicate if something is on disk too. Small blue sd card icon? I don't know.

thanks for your work on this.
