I suggest you ...

Allow "Force Download" while on mobile data.

I'm unable to download an episode of my choosing on mobile data unless I enable all episode downloads over mobile,and risk forgetting and having it chew through my data.

Until I implement a ‘real’ download manager, the next version will allow you to long press on an episode in the ‘Download manager screen’ and select ‘Force download’. This will allow to download THIS episode while bypassing the app network settings. This flag will reset when the app gets killed or the if the device is rebooted. If you don’t enable this in for the first episode in the download queue, then it won’t do anything until the 1st episode is downloaded.

This will be implemented in the next version (v3.3)

Edit: Delivered in v3.3

    Thanks for implementing this feature.
    Any chance you could add the long press on episode while in Playlist view?

    That could be just a popup asking you to confirm the download of an episode with mobile data. Very easy to be implemented.
