    Podcast download icon appears to be downloading when not on WiFi. Would prefer it didn't flash/scroll and perhaps post a status indicating it is holding, waiting for WiFi.

    Favourite app for an enormously valuable public service. The small suggestion I have to help use this service: enable multiple deletions from the saved podcast library to streamline such a task. All else considered - this app is essential.
