Podcasts automatically added to your episodes on download

Podcasts automatically added to your episodes on download

Question or Issue

When I wanted to listen to a podcast, I would simply download it. This allowed me to listen to it when it suited me without regards to my location. This was a simple process and took a total of 2 clicks to go from selecting the podcast to removal of the download when played

However this easy to manage system has now been mired in tedious additional clicks that provide no additional benefit. When a podcast is downloaded it's now added to Your Episodes. This is just another pointless list to have to manage, also needing 3 times as many clicks to carry out the simple act of downloading and removing when played. I do not understand the logic behind this change, it fails to serve a beneficial purpose for anyone, only taking up more time than was previously needed.

As my satisfaction of the product I'm paying for has dropped significantly, I request this change at the very least be made an opt in feature.

Hey, thanks for posting about this. I just happened to see another similar topic from another user and can definitely see how the extra clicks could be a bit annoying 🙂

I completely agree. Downloading should be a separate action from saving to My Episodes.
