  • Missing link: Sync

    I wish the the app would sync with my devices. I’m wasting time looking through phone a downloading episodes if it doesn’t sync automatically on my watch.
  • Disable Bluetooth to force WiFi

    This app has been the most valiant effort to work around the limitations of WatchOS 4. Unfortunately, the recent update seems to have broken the app on my series 3 watch. Hopefully, a WatchOS 5 version is in the works or ready for publication with WatchOS 5 on the 17th. WatchOS 5 should provide the developer with all the tools required to make this work as well as a first party app. My biggest frustration with this and any other podcast app is the limitation placed on data transfer to the watch. WatchOS seems to steadfastly stick to Bluetooth transfer. The only way to ensure a faster WiFi download on the watch seems to be to disable Bluetooth on the phone, but keep WiFi enabled. I hope Apple gives the user the option to prioritize one over the other in future versions of WatchOS. Cellular transfer seemed to work in earlier versions, but has been broken for me in recent versions

    Won’t load after update. Crashes immediately.

    Does not automatically resume paused downloads. Requires to disconnect iPhone during download to have adequate speed.
  • I never give a 1 star rating.

    I have used this app for quite a while and loved it but this new iteration crashes my Apple Watch 3. I loved this app but something went very wrong on this update.

    This has always been the watch player that worked reliably. Now it’s finally able to be easy to use thanks to watchOS 5.

    The Problem may not be out cast… But the Apple Watch… In any case… Even when following directions… Download of Podcasts onto the I watch has been sporadic, unreliable, and unpredictable.

    Downloading a podcast on to Iwatch 3 is extremely unreliable. Tried all the recommendations: Bluetooth on or off. Doesn’t make any difference. Interrupt errors non stop. Also, if you are successful in download to iwatch the podcast behaves like a scratched phonograph record. Audio keeps skipping back to earlier parts of the podcast then back to current location. Annoying.
  • Can't download podcasts to watch

    I have tried to download podcasts on 5 or more occasions and it has never worked. It downloads super slowly (1mb every 10 seconds) then loses connection after a few mins. Have tried on Bluetooth and wifi. The app simply doesn't work.
