  1. Great, but what about iPod synchronisation? I want to upgrade to gPodder 3.x, but this is the only thing that's keeping me on 2.x!

  2. It's bad on my 2 Nokia N9.
    Download Episode dont showing my. have to go in the main directory and go back to see it green with download avance.
    Sometime changing the directorys is crashing gPodder. In one of my devices i removed with "apt-get --purge gpodder" and deleting everything named gpodder. Reinstalling from Store doesnt solved the problem
