NOt sure if its a bug or feature request. Recently I randomly popped into the APP while a file was downloading in SABNZB. All the data for the download showed immediately (Name, Filesize, Amount complete, etc.)
Only thing missing was the progress bar. After the 5 second refresh then it filled out and showed the progress.
Since all the data was available immediately then perhaps a small code reorder would also show the progress bar off the bat?
