Even with Apple Podcasts syncing to the watch, this app is a must. If you wake up early or want to manually sync a podcast to download to your watch, this app is DEFINITELY the way to go. So happy to see developers recently update this app as I daily use it. Apple Podcasts and every other App Store app I have tried doesn’t even come close. This one allows you to wear the watch, choose your podcast, download it (for me a 30 minute episode takes about 2 minutes even over bluetooth) and I am set. Don’t hesitate to but.

App shows promise but for some reason I guess only 8-10 seconds of audio before it craps out. I can’t tell if it’s the internet, (300mb fiber) or if it’s my watch? Or the app? Or the server?Every podcast I play has the same problem and changing it from outcast server to podcast url server still causes it to glitch out. I have no idea what’s going on. Oh well enjoy my dollar.

I just started using the app and it is frustrating. It shows that my podcasts are downloaded to the watch but when I leave my phone it only downloaded the title. I can’t figure out when and if the they have been downloaded. Explain how fast an average download should take on Bluetooth vs WiFi. Is there a way to see the progress

Original review: With the most recent update this stopped working on my Series 3 Apple Watch. When I select an episode to play the app closesUpdate: This corrected itself by reinstalling app on my phone. Outcast provides much better control of podcasts on my watch than the native Apple Podcast app.
