A nice, clean app. I would probably switch to using it from the app I'm currently using, but: I'm used to having the fast forward and rewind buttons on the lock screen widget. Instead, this widget only has the playback speed button. And it seems there's no way to change that in settings.

Hello, thanks for the review. On the more recent Android versions you'll have rewind, fast forward, speed setting & skip episode buttons on the lock screen card. If you're talking about the home screen widget, please remove & re-add it to apply new settings. Don't hesitate to reach out on forum.antennapod.org to have this looked at!

Simple and clutter-free interface. Its the best replacement for Google Podcasts. The best feature is it's ability to run in background when you press the "Close All" option and just want to keep listening to podcasts. Only way it can get better is if they include a scroll bar to browse through list instead of flipping through the entire list.

Close, but not exact replacement for Google Podcasts. Playback of pods works fine, but casting to a device is clunky. It stops the podcast & seems to need manual intervention to restart it. Also, it would be nice if the forward & back buttons appeared in the widget. I'd also like a list of new episodes that shows everything without having to click into news. But functionally, it does what it says on the packet: plays podcasts.

Hi Claire, thanks for that honest review! Casting is on our radar (but not easy to improve). If you remove and re-add the widget, you can now choose which buttons are displayed, including rewind,fast forward and skip. For a list of new episodes, we recommend using the Inbox. But if that doesn't cater to your needs, please let us know what's missing
