For me one of the confusing parts of using the Downloads aspect of the iOS app is when I have finished watching something and I go to delete it.


The default screen which shows the trashcan actually deletes the file from the server not just from your iPad. To be fair it does always warn you that it will remove it from the file system; but i would expect if I am in the My Downloads list, clicking delete removes it from this list rather than the server.


To actually delete the file from my iPad you need to click the gears icon first, then choose delete from the next screen.


I would have thought the normal use case would be


1) Download movie to watch offline

2) After watching, remove the file from my iPad to save space


Is there anyway to change this default behaviour?

I agree. I accidentally deleted something I didn't want to because of this !!! :angry:


It should take multiple steps to delete from the server and the default should be ONLY from the local download.


I only found out how to delete ONLY from the iPhone by accident.
