Organize Front Page
I love this app, but the only thing I would wish for is an easier way to sort my podcasts.
Right now, I have to sort each individual podcast by assigning it a 'priority' number, which gets the job done but takes a long time to accomplish, especially if you have a lot of subscriptions. Would it be possible to have an update so I can simply touch and hold the podcast image, and then have the icon respond by letting me drag it around to whatever spot on the list or grid that I want? Or maybe just have a menu option to take the front page into an organize mode?
Thanks, and keep up the great work!
The app allows you to reorder your subscriptions by drag and drop.

Would love for this feature to be added. This would not need to impact playlist order or how priority assignments work at all, but simply how the podcast subscriptions are displayed on the main Podcast page.
Like the main poster said, the priority number can sort of do this but you'd have to assign each subscription its own number to organize them exactly how you want on that main page; way too cumbersome and would make adding any new podcasts to the top a chore. I also think the priority number shouldn't be the primary way to do this given how it is used to organize other aspects of playlists.

I would say this one could be marked complete?

There is a Manual Drag & Drop option already in the Playlist view. Select the Sort (Up-Down Arrows) icon. Select the top option; Manual Drag & Drop. Then there is a handle to the left of each episode in the list that you can grab and drag.
I used to use Beyond Pod, which has a graphical drag a and drop priority setting like you describe. It sounds good, but the problem is that there is no provision for equal priority podcasts. With PA, if you set two podcasts with equal priority, you will alternate episodes between them (a good thing). With Beyond Pod, you have to hear all the episodes of the higher priority podcast before it moves on.
Anyway, I would want to make sure that any change preserves this important feature of PA.
