Works great. There is no app so you have to go to the website create and account, and it takes a little time to learn to use it. You have to be comfortable with linking an RSS feed if you can't find a podcast. Just a matter of a simple cut and paste of a URL. Then just a matter of adding the podcast you want and syncing with your watch.

Great podcast solution for Garmin watches, and way better than trying to side load from a computer especially if you have a Mac. The only thing I wish was included was a way to also play podcasts on my phone and then sync progress. But for a free app that might be asking too much!

Best podcast app I’ve tried so far!! Only issue so far is that skipping 30 seconds forward skips to the next podcast at the same time. Odd bug.

December 12, 2021 | Version 1.2.1

Очень ограниченное приложение, да и разбираться очень долго откуда, что оно скидывает-короче отврат

December 5, 2021 | Version 1.2.1

Works well!

Hace tiempo que buscaba una aplicación para podcast. Funciona bien, y la selección de podcast en el teléfono es muy sencilla, y la sincronizacion automática. Encantado de haberla encontrado.

Great podcast stop. What they done have listed, you can manually add for playback. Completely satisfied

November 20, 2021 | Version 1.2.1

By far the best podcast app on Garmin

I am not able to simple upload podcasts manually, because garmin express not supporting linux. This app finally allow me to use my watch as intended. Additional kudos for developer for making it charityware

November 18, 2021 | Version 1.1.6

Very useful, perfect for long runs

Из всех музыкальных приложений это хоть загрузилось на часы vivoactive 4, чё то там соединялось, грузилось, но в итоге так и не заработало..... Херь полная... Не рекомендую.

Why can't find any station inApp?

Hello, because it would very unusable to manage your podcasts, playlist and more on a watch screen, we developed a web app to manage everything.

October 20, 2021 | Version 1.1.6

Awesome job! The app is exactly what is needed! Thank you a lot for your time and effort!

October 20, 2021 | Version 1.1.6

Amazing job did on this app. Fantastic app with a huge quantity of podcasts (in french languages, doesn't try other languages). Thank you again for your work and to make my runs less boring.

При синхронизации по WI-FI, часы впадают в перезагрузку! Удаляю.

Best App for Podcasts. Podcast Flow is a great function...

Great app, well done to the developer. I initially found it hard to understand how it worked, but once understood, it all makes sense. Thanks!

Zuerst etwas fuckelig die gewünschten Podcasts in die Playlist aufzunehmen, aber wenn es erst mal läuft, funktioniert es gut, die Synchronisation ist auch eher langsam.

September 10, 2021 | Version 1.1.6

This is an ok app. Some problems are that the website does not mark podcasts that you have listened to as 'played'. another big problem is that for whatever reason it will not display more than the most recent 150(or so) episodes that have been published. so if I want to listen to mike Duncan's revolutions podcast I can't listen to his series on the French revolution and as I am going through the Haitian revolution old episodes are being removed from this app as new episodes are being published. this is very discouraging. also, I have tried to email the developer to ask if these details are going to be addressed, but there was no response. so sad. there isn't really a good podcast app for my Garmin watch. I would be willing to send the developer a few dollars if he could finish getting playrun dialed in.

Works well and is simple to operate. I would give it five stars if it had a 'fast forward 30 seconds' feature. This fast forward is essential when listening to podcasts to skip commercials.

Great app for syncing podcast to my fenix6. Works perfectly.

Beste App zum offline Podcast hören. Bietet eine sehr gute Homepage zum Verwalten an.
