Reception[edit]

In December 2015 Android Police named AntennaPod one of their favorite and most used apps in 2015, saying it is a "capable option that looks great" and has all needed features.[10]

In November 2019, Dan Price of Make Use of included AntennaPod as the only open-source player in a list of 8 best podcast applications for Android. He said although it was less well known, it has many good features, including "great memory management tools."[11]

In June 2020, Manuel Vonau of AndroidPolice said open source AntennaPod from F-Droid is a "fine alternative to many proprietary solutions" but its player design could be improved.[12]
