Environment: no auto-update enabled, no auto-download enabled
I have been using Antennapod for a while and now have some issues with extremely hgh battery drainage. I have around 200 podcast subsciptions but a lot of them are inactive, and I also have turned off automatic updates and automatic dowloads, so I only update and download twice a day manually. Still, the app is using tons of battery even when just listening to the podcasts offline.
I used to only have a couple of subscriptions and it never was an issue then - but since I don’t have any updates or auto-downloads enabled, why is it using so much battery all of a sudden?
Can confirm. CPU usage of AntennaPod can get pinned to extremely high levels on my phone, draining the battery rapidly & heating up the phone drastically. Please see screen shot from Samsung’s Thermal Guardian watchdog. The only way to stop it is by force closing AntennaPod, after which the phone cools down eventually.
This happens several times a week for me now, likely because my database has grown so large at this point. I haven’t been active on this site lately, so haven’t thought to acquire a stack trace while it’s happening. I will attempt next time it happens.
