Bug Description

You have the "What's New" list as well as the full list of "Podcasts", perhaps it would be an idea to add one to show the "Pending Downloads" or "Pending Actions" and their current status...

This would allow you to find which podcasts are marked for download, and see the progress....

It would be useful to be able to change priorities from this screen, perhaps with a "Download this next" and/or "Download this now" option, because often I find that I have many downloads queued, nothing seems to be happening and I don't know how many other podcasts are queued to download (sometimes over a slow link) before the one I want to listen to.

That's a good idea that we will look into implementing.

Changed in podbird:
importance: Undecided → Wishlist
status: New → Triaged

I have added the list of on-going downloads to the Downloads View. This should help see which podcasts are marked for download and see their progress. As a bonus, we have integrated this function into the transfer indicator as well.

I'm not sure what this downloads view you are referring to is, I just have "What's New", "Podcasts", "Add New Podcasts" and "Settings". I'm still trying to find out what it's trying to download (if anything) and what the status is.

I've set podbird to not be suspended, and it's run for 48 hours with a WiFi connection, I've rebooted the device and restarted podbird several times, but I still can't make it download the podcast I want to listen to....
