Can you guys add a feature to show the queue in the Android app in reverse order. Currently if I add a show to my queue it sticks it at the bottom of the list, and I would prefer to have the newest ones at the top of the list, especially so I can track new episodes coming out. At the same time I don't want to remove my favorites from the list, so it would make sense to have them ordered oldest at the bottom.

Please add an option to flip them. Thanks!

You need to re-order the queue yourself in on the website here /queue

There are two controls directly to the left of the icons in your queue. One is an arrow that pops the show to the top, and the other is a double-column of dots that you can use drag-n-drop on to move shows around.


After you do that, and you exit and return to the app it will reflect your changes.

I'm fully away of the website ability to reorder the queue, but I'm not talking about that at all. I'm talking about the android app specifically (sure iPhone can come too if it wants) and the need to press 1 button and flip the entire queue.

I say this because when you have 30 or 40 titles in your queue you have to scroll all the way down to find the one you just added 2 seconds ago. When you have a fill desktop in front of you it's not that big of a deal, but on a small phone screen from a UX standpoint it sucks to have to scroll through everything you already watched but just have saved to the bottom where your current shows your following are.

All I'm asking for is an option that let's the most recently added queue title to show at the top. Doesn't have to be a button on the queue screen, it could be a simple check box in the settings.

Having the option to add to either the top or bottom of the list is a good idea, actually, but one which would have to be done by changing the main site coding, not the specific android app itself. The queue is kept in a central database and all the various ways of accessing CR just read and use that.

It appeared to me that you were a relatively new member, having only a few cr points, meaning you have only made a small handful of posts, with a start date of March of this year, so with that in mind, in case you hadn't known, I was merely pointing out the only option you can currently use while you are holding your breath waiting. Because in the 5-6 years I've been here, I haven't seen any queue change suggestions get implemented, and believe me, there have been a lot of suggestions:
/search?q=queue&o=f&t=fc&n=391026
