Integration with other apps

With AntennaPod, you can specify subscriptions (podcast feeds) to be updated regularly (see Refreshing podcasts).

If you have more complex needs, you can use various 3rd-party automation applications with AntennaPod to do so. For example:

  • Get the subscriptions updated at the start of the day: at 7am, switch on WIFI, then update AntennaPod feeds.
  • Get your subscriptions before your ride home: at 5pm on weekdays update subscriptions.
