Sorry, not certain where to submit feature requests.
I want to be able to set the update frequency, currently no way to know how often it checks for new, or to do the check myself manually. Typical Ubuntu touch behavior seems to be to draw down the top bar to refresh or check for new manually.
Also, while I'm at it, if I have it set to hide listened episodes, I would like the ability to show only the podcast folders with new, unlistened material. The whats new section doesn't show all the new podcasts, only the stuff from the last few days.
Cheers, and thanks.

Hi RegPerrin. Thanks for taking the time to report this bug. Just one thing though, each bug report should track one particular bug/feature. Btw you can use this bug tracker to also submit feature requests. I see there are two issues pointed out by you,

1. Need to be able to auto-queue new episodes
2. Be able to stop playback after a certain playback time. (Tracked in bug 1420964)

Since issue #2 is already tracked else where, I am changing this bug report to track issue #1. Feel free to add a bit more description if you so wish.

summary: - Need to be able to auto queue new episodes. Also, need to be able to
- have it play for a specified time, then stop (egad I'm listening as I
- fall asleep, but I want it to stop playing after 20 mins).
+ Need to be able to auto queue new episodes

Regarding your comment #1,

> I want to be able to set the update frequency, currently no way to know how often it checks for new, or to do the check myself manually. Typical Ubuntu touch behavior seems to be to draw down the top bar to refresh or check for new manually.

The update frequency is manual. You can refresh it by pulling the top bar down to refresh or check manually. The only time when Podbird checks automatically is when opening the app. Even that is being changed with the upcoming update v0.7.

Hmm This is actually doable and makes sense. Can you report a new bug to track this feature request please?
