I suggest you ...

"New Episodes" screen > swipe episode to download (right) or "mark as read" (left)

As an Android user of Podcast Addict, I refresh my podcast feed (over 30 subscriptions) once or twice a week. In my configuration, this presents a list of 15-20 entries on the "new episodes" page.

I manually download the episodes I'm interested in, and mark the ones I'm not interested in as "read".

Problem: a user must select an episode on the New Episodes screen, launch the episode's screen, then select either "download" or "mark read" on the screen.

It would be really useful to have a shortcut feature on the main New Episode screen which allows me to quickly set an episode to download or as "read".

I suggest the use of a screen "swipe" function, such that when a user swipes left on the episode, it marks the episode as "read" and when a user swipes the episode to the right it marks it as "queue for download"

    Not just on new episode list, but also on regular display list of episodes in a podcast. Much the same way one can go through notifications or email headers without reading them.
    First implementation might be delete/download.
    Further implementation might be the ability for user to select direction left/right and associate an action from drop down list (more than just del/download).
    Thanks for considering
