View Full Version : What does Favorite mean?

In 4.1.12 it seems that the Lock feature for episodes has been replaced by Favorite. I'll concede that Lock may not be a good word for "keep", but I can't reason about what Favorite means. And I couldn't find it in any notes.

"Keep" could even be used with the lock icon.

This is something we did in 4.0. In the support feedback for 3.x we are getting unusually high number of people that kept asking if there is a way to mark some episodes they like as "Favorite" so they can keep it for a while.
You would think that "Lock" would be obvious but there were way too many that thought of this action as "keep it as favorite", vs. "lock it to prevent deletion".

The functionality is exactly the same - we just renamed the menu option from "lock" to "favorite". With it being a "favorite", we also now show a list of all "favorites" at the bottom of "What to Play" section.

Weird, I thought the lock concept was a lot more intuitive. :)
