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.

This app completely wiped out Amazon Music on my 245m. The app works as long as you're ok with it being the only provider you have and not having any other options.

Hi Paul, Sorry for the trouble here, you're hitting a very real bug. As far as I can tell this is a bug in the Garmin firmware where it's not properly isolating Music Providers like Runcasts, Spotify and Amazon. I've reported the issue to Garmin, but so far, I haven't received a status update--otherwise I would pass that along. In the meantime, I'm experimenting with workarounds to see if there's a way to mitigate this w/o a Garmin fix. Very frustrating, I know, apologies! -Rick

Hi! As somewhere below mentioned as well, it wipes out spotify and vice versa, how can I have both on the vivoactive 3 at the same time? Thanks!

Issues to begin with - the dev is responsive & app working great now. If you’re more than a casual listener of pods then this is a must! Support the independent devs- $5/month is perfectly reasonable!

Really struggling with it, I'm trying to remove and would advise installing for the moment. Fenix 6 Pro

Has wiped Amazon Music from my 945, now not sure what to do. Avoid this app until this issue is fixed.

Hi Beeng, if you contact us at [email protected] we'd be happy to help you with any download issues you're having. Something you can try on your own is restarting your watch: we've found in many cases that restarting the watch can fix some types of networking issues found in Garmin watches--not all, but quite a few. If that doesn't work, contact us and we can dig in. -Rick

I enjoy it when it works. I have 3 podcasts in my queue on the website and my watch shows no episodes

Running is now much more fun! I didn't want to pay $5 each month, but organizing podcasts by hand isn't much fun on a Garmin watch. Then I gave it a try and for me, it's absolutely worth the money. It would be great if the free service wasn't so limited - not everybody has a few dollars to spare each month. But great work!

This app actually is working fine on my Vivoactive Music 3. Managing the podcasts through the site is extremely easy and the easiest I've seen up until now. Had to reset the app on the watch a few times, but that might be because I was fiddling around with the settings on the site a lot until finally deciding what podcasts to sync. Had to a power off and on of the watch one time because no music played even though BT headset was paired and watch said it was playing music. Not sure if that is a bug in the app or the watch. Space used on the site is also incorrect, says 220% is used while almost 70% is free on the watch. Other then that this now my favorite podcast app.

Most negative comments left for this app are because of Garmin issues, not the app's. All the music apps have issues syncing over wifi. The wifi on these watches sucks.

We've passed along the reports of difficulty uninstalling Runcasts to Garmin and are hoping this gets resolved soon. In the meantime, we've updated our docs with a recommended workaround to allow uninstalling: https://runcasts.com/faq#uninstall-runcasts

Used to work, with some glitches, but now the website is no longer accessible when I try to access it via the Garmin connect app.

Works well, but very overpriced at $60/year! I'd be tempted to pay a one off charge, but the license/subscription model adds up too quickly.

Scott Boyle
2019. augusztus 12. | Verziószám: 4.1.0

Be warned: Installing this wiped the rest of my music off my FR645. I don’t know how, or when exactly. I went for a run immediately after installing it and it worked well for that one run. But later that day I opened the music app, tried to change providers, and found that there were no other providers. Only Runcasts. And I mean ONLY runcasts. No Spotify, but also no “my music” and even the “Control Phone” and “Add Provider” options was gone! The entire music functionality had basically become only the runcast app, because that was the only option I had to select from the Providers screen. I had to uninstall runcasts and Spotify to get my Garmin default options back. I added Spotify back on and now I’m sitting here re-syncing hundreds of songs from Spotify. -_- a huge waste of time. Spotify has podcasts. This app is undoubtedly better suited for them, but I am hesitant to resinstall it....

Thanks for the details, we'll be contacting Garmin to figure out what's going on here and get a fix out ASAP. -Rick

Works flawlessly. First time setup was quick. Sync'd perfectly. I'm now out running with all my podcasts. Great app! ... if (very) limited on the free option.

Beeng

Manual syncing is extremely unreliable. There is no way to remove a podcast from the queue on the website.

A fejlesztő válasza
2019. augusztus 12., rconradharris

Hi Beeng, the reliability of the syncing is usually dictated by the quality of the Wi-Fi signal at the location you're syncing from. The app internally performs 'retries' to try to fetch content in the face of poor signal quality, but that only helps so much. I'd recommend trying from a different location to see if that helps. For 2) you can remove a podcast by clicking 'Unsubscribe' on the podcast page for a whole podcast, or if an individual episode 'Played'. If you still run into issues, please contact [email protected] and I'd be happy to help! -Rick

It's a pretty seamless app: a nice web interface to manage podcast subscriptions and a reliable watch app to play them locally. Download performance is really good too because their servers intermediate between the watch and the source. I'm really happy with it. Would like to have a few playback features like fast-forward and rewind. Still, I'm overall very happy with the features, e.g. variable playback speed and private podcast feeds.

Limited to one podcast unless you pay for premium account.

Once I was able to get it to sync after a few restarts it works very well. Sound is clean and controls via the watch are very functional, even during a workout.

David
2019. június 10. | Verziószám: 4.0.2

It's been really functional so far. The web interface is reliable and I appreciate being able to queue up podcasts from anywhere. The app itself runs well: stable and most of the features I'd want.
