[Feature Req?] Listening to podcast then receiving a phone call

I'm not sure if this is already an option buried somewhere in the settings that I've missed but I have an issue with doggcatcher. When I am listening to a podcast through my headphones (at work) and I receive a call on my cellphone, the podcast pauses and I unplug my headphones to take the call. As soon as the person hangs up, the podcast starts up again without my headphones plugged in which puts the podcast on speaker. Is there a way to have it not automatically come back on after a call?

This is just a tiny issue for a really great podcasting app! Thanks.

I think this was mentioned before and will be worked on in the future.

A pretty big deal

This one has become a pretty big deal for me. Just now, at work, in a cubicle environment, having had my phone start blasting the paused podcast after hanging up from a phone call, I'm motivated to drop in here and check on the status of this potential new feature of sheer embarrassment. I'm becoming reluctant either to listen to podcasts here at work, or to take phone calls while I am. I've entertained the idea of considering other podcatchers, but I'm doubtful that any will do better with phone calls and virtually all of those are subpar on the feature sets.

So to finally get to the point, any guess as to how this issue is looking relative to the stack of other items you're working?

It's overdue

I moved it up to before the rest of the stuff on the soon list. It needs to happen before all the rest of that other than maybe some bug fixes.

Thanks for keeping the pressure on :-)

I have to jump in and beg for this too. The other residents of my cube farm and I have RADICALLY different taste in podcasts and/or what is or is not acceptible to broadcast to the entire room. Like others have mentioned, I'm currently torn between not answering phone calls or not listening to podcasts. I'd really, really, really like to be able to do both.

I'd be perfectly happy with a "pause when headphones are removed" only option. Because if it's easier/quicker to do it that way, I'm fine handling the resume responsibilities myself!

Resuming after a call

I've been holding off on this because it's going to interact with the feature that I just finished...the ability to play the audio automatically when you connect the headset. I needed to do them in the right order so they didn't interfere with each other.

The feature you're talking about is in the 'two after next' timeframe...which probably isn't exactly two releases away, but it'll probably be pretty close.

Awesome. Frankly, I'm just amazed that you were willing to even respond to my comment so quickly. Gives me a whole bunch of confidence in your product and I'm sure you'll get to it soon. Thanks for listening!

What I do is just take the call with my headphones on. The sound of the call is routed through my headphones.

Apologies for bumping an old

Apologies for bumping an old post. Recently bought the app and this is basically the only issue I'm having with the app. Has an option been created to solve this issue in any later release of the app? I can't seem to find anything directly addressing it in the Change Log since the last post (10/19/2010). Great work overall and thanks for a great app.
