App version: 2.2.1 (d9fdca4d0)
from Google Play
Played listings are displayed in ‘dimmed’ text, including the Favorites star.
(Using “dimmed” as a proxy for gray or whatever font effects indicate that something has been played, without knowing how themes interact with presentation in the app. I’m using a dark theme, and text appears gray.)
Make the Favorites icon pop by displaying it ‘undimmed’ and in a different color, such as ‘golden’.
Reason: I tag a podcast as a favorite because I may simply like it, but more often because it is important to me. I will delete downloads to recover space, and often feel a tiny anxiety that I’ll delete something important. (Also, I’m farsighted but use 3 powers of reading glasses for items closer than a meter.)
