Worked for me first time, got my favorite podcast to my my Fenix in 5 minutes. I don't know what's up with all the negative reviews, just follow directions guys! It even has album art, sweet!

Works well for me. Running the free version. Takes a bit of time to upload, but I have not experienced any issues.

Since installing this app to “just have a go and see what it’s like” I’ve not been able to access my downloaded music on my watch. Since uninstalling the app I still can’t. Wish I’d never downloaded

The issue of being unable to access Spotify, etc, can be resolved by accessing the choice of music providers via Settings-Music-Music Providers and selecting source there. Excellent app

If there were zero stars I would rate it a zero. This app overrides all my other music providers and is impossible to uninstall. Terrible.

Hi Kelsey, I honestly don't know what to tell you: I've reported these two bugs: 1) the music providers colliding with each other and 2) the inability to uninstall active music providers to Garmin. Unfortunately both of these bugs are in Garmin's firmware and not something Runcasts can fix or even workaround. Garmin, to my great sadness, has not fixed the issue nor have they provided any kind of update. I'm not even sure if they are actively looking into it, and, sadly, I'm not sure they will ever fix it. We don't expect our customers to distinguish between what's Garmin's fault and what's Runcasts' fault: things should just work, but at the end of the day, folks deserve to understand what's going on. If you want this fixed, don't write to me, write Garmin because they are the only ones who can fix this. Speaking personally, these 1-star reviews matter a lot to me, and the fact that I can't wave a wand and fix this issue because the issue isn't with Runcasts is completely demoralizing. I'm not sure Apple Watch will do any better here, but I'm going to be spending my time there because it CANNOT be worse. I'm not killing the Garmin app, but I'm also not going to be spending much more time on it either. Sincerely, Rick Harris, Founder of Runcasts

Avoid at all costs. Install hangs forever and then it’s impossible to uninstall.

Sorry, no statistics available yet.
