After getting used to the newer UI, one of the biggest complaints I have right now is the integration with Android Auto. It "forgets" what episode was last playing when it starts up in Android Auto, as there is almost never the "Now Playing" button on the bottom right (the one that's the animated equalizer bars) but instead shows the options to find a new episode to start. I always have to switch over to the app itself to see the current episode and progress, and resume playback from there.

I really like the simplicity of this app for podcasts, but a recent update wouldn't let me pause a podcast when wired to Android Auto. I had to restart my phone in order to stop the playback of a podcast. It appears the last update on 6/7/22 took care of it. Thanks for making a relatively fast fix.

The app has lost functionality through fancy updates. For some reason this includes the pause button. You can pause, but it will almost immediately resume. So you think you paused. You take out your earbud. Then when you put it back in later the episode has finished. While I doubt the coding problem behind the problem is stupid, the actual problem for the user makes the app virtually unusable.
