I haven't used it yet, but I'm moving over from Runcasts and this app looks great. I love the developer's ethos - giving all your potential revenue to charity deserves maximun respect. From one developer to another, merci! I will update the review when I've been for my first run with it tomorrow.

Finally - a podcast app for Garmin devices that actually works! Thank you!!

April 24, 2021 | Version 1.1.6

Works well, but loses a star because it is missing a critical feature: skipping ahead by 30 seconds. Would love to see this added into the app.

Hello, the fast forward and backward button works on none touch screen watch. Unfortunately, on touch screen watch, those buttons are buggy, and Garmin don't fix it :-(.

Won't sync below 50% battery. Bullshit

Hello, Garmin put this constraint, if you battery is less than 50% you need to plug your watch to sync any music or podcast app .

Very easy to use and sync

Great app, but I seriously miss rewind and fast-forward buttons.

April 13, 2021 | Version 1.1.6

Great podcast player, works perfectly! Only thing missing for me is the ability to mark episodes as 'listened to' on the web page, so I don't accidentally add episodes to the playlist I already know. Thank you so much for the great work!

What Garmin should have done themselves! Well done.

April 5, 2021 | Version 1.1.6

Best podcast player put there. The only issue is just how slow the syncing is. It can take easily 30mins for a single podcast synch and even then it can time out. Fix the synch and it's a 6 out of 5

Como me descargo música en el playlist

Nachdem man einmal rausgefunden hat, wie die Synchronisierung funktioniert, klappt das Podcast hören wunderbar

J'y comprends rien du tout ! Aucune explication en français. Y a t-il un support ? Quelqu'un peut-il m'expliquer par mail ?

Great, except now I can’t access music on my Fenix 6. Only podcasts ☹️

Hi, you can select an other music source with the watch menu : menu/music/music source

February 27, 2021 | Version 1.1.6

all perfectly! the only thing missing is the speed of playback. at least 1.5x. As I understand it, a standard player in a watch does not know how to do this. Therefore, it is necessary to convert the file on the server and upload the already accelerated file to the device.

February 23, 2021 | Version 1.1.6

Amazing app.

Cuesta un poco entender como sincronizar pero una vez lo entiendes es genial

February 20, 2021 | Version 1.1.6

Awesome app. Took me a while to figure out that syncing of playlist and flow had to be enabled separately.

Works well, has basically every possible podcast. Thanks!
