Automatically apply custom settings at category-level.
This is the main feature that is preventing me from ditching BeyondPod entirely for Podcast Addict...
Use Case: When I subscribe to a new podcast, I assign it to a category called 'Auditions'. In BeyondPod, this action automatically assigns the custom settings of 'Auditions' to the podcast (which dictates that only one episode is downloaded at a time).
If I like the podcast, I will remove it from the category 'Auditions' and place it in 'Favorites', where it automatically conforms to the custom settings of its new category (thereby downloading three episodes at a time).
(In BeyondPod, a single podcast can be in multiple categories and thus conform to multiple download schedules. This may be out-of-scope for this suggestion, however.)
In any case, I appreciate the monumental amount of work you've already accomplished, @Xavier. It's a great application.

+1. As someone attempting to migrate over from 10 years of fine tuning in doggcatcher, this would be extremely useful
Any updates on this? This seriously feels like a major oversight, considering how in-depth all the rest of Podcast Addict's customization settings are.
You can set custom settings; you can set categories; but you can't set custom settings to categories? As a result of that, categories are strictly for organization but have no real functional value. I think this app would really be kicked into high gear if I could automagically have podcasts in my News category always have just the latest episode downloaded, whereas my Fiction category podcasts always have the next 5 episodes ahead of my most recently played one downloaded.

PS - An amusing fact I noticed on my way here: If you do not capitalize the 'A' in the Bitly link to the Podcast Addict suggestions page (http://bit.ly/pAddict), you are taken to a website for treatment of porn addiction.
