Found bug in first 30 seconds

App has bug. After subscribing to a new podcast, the podcast tab has an entry with no information contained inside of it. If I restart the app then there is information inside of it. This happened on the very first podcast subscribed to after the app was downloaded and opened.

A good start, but not a keeper

Being menu-bar based is a great idea, because it means you can get to the Back button quickly. (This is also better than floating UI, because it doesn't obscure other things you are doing.)

But there are problems:

- the "notch" that's common on Macs interferes with the menubar UI, making the Back button magically disappear

- there's no way to list episodes in chronological order, which makes it hard to listen to them in the order they were released; there are two sorting choices, "Alphabetical" and "Episode Release," but neither of those results in actual release order (the devs obviously assume that Alphabetical will produce that order, but that fails for many reasons)

- there's no convenient way to clear the "Up Next" playlist -- you have to right-click and then remove each item individually

It's also silly to be expected to pay a subscription for an app like this. It's not like Arvocast is a platform that hosts and streams podcasts. This should be a one-time purchase.
