@ESK2DPV7 Hi Aytaç
Yup, connecting with Android Auto is possible with the F-Droid version! You'll just have to enable unknown sources in Android Auto.

@Beowulf @KopfKrieg
Sorry for replying in English. But we have good news! There are no less than TWO Nextcloud apps that might (!) synchronise with AntennaPod:
☝️ github.com/thrillfall/nextclou replicating gpodder.net functionality (not published yet, but when released it would quickly support synchronisation)
✌️ apps.nextcloud.com/apps/podcas Podcast app built specifically for Nextcloud (we're trying to see with the developer if we can support synchronisation)
We'll be sure to toot about it if/when it's there!

@skobkin Ahh, nice. Interested in sharing a link to your blog post with us? Might be interesting for other users as well!

@jeybe
Thanks for the kind words!

The rel="me" tag is there, but we're having indeed some issues with the certificate. We're working on it - hopefully fixed tonight.

@avolkov That's very kind to say!

Just FYI: There's no plans on getting a second home - we're quite happy where we are 🙃 Also, it's a hassle to become a good home-owner in two places: we'd need to rebuild from scratch all the furniture we currently have to make it work in both environments. That's a lot of work and we (currently) don't have the community to make that happen. But never say never.

@humanetech Support for has been mentioned in the context of podcast comments (forum.antennapod.org/t/possibl) - something that's being discussed also in the community (podcastindex.social). And there's potential aside commenting, but no concrete ideas or discussions as of yet.
In two weeks we have a - if there's interest from our community and ActivityPub experts/enthusiasts, we would be happy to set up a discussion to explore the options.

@Erik
We would be honoured to be the first project you contribute to. And remember: contributions can also be in other forms than code.
Whatever you're up to: do check in with the community on our forum: forum.antennapod.org There surely will be people happy to discuss and help you get started 💪

@AntennaPod a great #FLOSS #PodCatcher for #Android has joined the #Fediverse. 😊 🎉 We'd like to extend a warm welcome. 💕 So if you love #Podcasts and #FreeSoftware you might want to take a look at #AntennaPod. Although we suspect most of you know the project already anyway. 😉

@joeligj12
We were talked about, but not officially present! Thanks for blogging about us - every bit of promotion helps the project grow. But ehm, if you have any particular ideas for getting rid of the rough edges in the UI, don't hesitate to chip in as well! (Either here or on our forum) 😉

And for those reading along, here is the blog post in question: joelchrono12.ml/blog/antenna-p

@josias
Thank you! Similar things to what we post on Twitter (community updates, new releases, project news) mixed in with some more nerdy (technical) stuff. But if you have suggestions (for what you'd like to see in our feed), please let us know!

Hello Fediverse!
Almost 9 years after our very first tweet announcing the creation of the project, we're now happy to publish our very first toot :blobcatheadphones:

We are an international team of contributors of code and otherwise. Together we work on the the most popular open source podcast app for Android. And we would love to get you on board 👉 antennapod.org/contribute

What we like to do in our spare time? Listening to podcasts!
