Habe die app nun erst 3 Tage im Gebrauch aber der erste Eindruck auf meiner vivoactive 4 ist super!

Great App! Thank you! Unfortunaly gpodder isn't reliable (often down) but that's not developers fault. Don't know which searching engine is used but unfortunaly not every Podcast is found (on gpodder.net it is). Keep up the good work!

My watch will sync over wifi but it obviously doesn't stay connected because I can't search for podcasts, it acts like it isn't connected. I understand the developer will say its an issue with the watches ability to connect to the wifi but if you're building an app reliant on the wifi connection. . . It seems like it would be better (and faster) if there was a way to download podcasts on your computer and put them on the watch through the wired connection.

Hi Sean, if you are having troubles using the app you can contact me using the "contact developer" button. My suggestion is that you might not be connected to a phone via bluetooth, or that phone might not have an available internet connection. Unfortunately, Garmin devices can't connect directly to internet using Wi-Fi, since it consumes a lot of power. The usually connect to internet using the bluetooth connection of the phone. Wi-Fi connection is enabled only for downloading the podcasts episodes from internet, for searching podcasts the app has to use the bluetooth and the phone. I know that this is confusing, and I know that it's not practical, but it's how Garmins has implemented it.

A great way to get your favourite podcasts on to your Garmin. Latest update adds the option to select individual podcasts which is brilliant!

Hi Alexander, thank you for your feedback! I'm working to integrate other services in the app. gpodder.net has been unreliable for a few months now.

Can't get it to work. Watch will sync over wi-fi but from podcasts it spends hours searching for WiFi

Risposta sviluppatore

This is unfortunately an issue with the watch itself, I'm pretty sure that other apps will have the same issue. Developers have no control on WiFi connectivity.

Do you mind explaining what exactly doesn't work so I can fix it?

William Davies

Old episodes seem to remain in the play queue after sync. The causes an issue where nothing will playback (presumably it's still trying to play episodes in the queue that no longer exist on the device?) Otherwise, great app.

Hi William, I fixed this in the latest app version. Thank you for the feedback!

Love the idea but just doesn't work. Got a couple of episodes downloaded then nothing else will sync.

Risposta sviluppatore

Unfortunately the app at the moment just downloads the latest N episodes from each feed (you can change how many from the settings). I'm working to make this more functional, and allow downloading individual episodes, but Garmin software is extremely limited. Stay tuned!

Can't seem to get the syncing to work. Won't leave 0% at all. Had to uninstall and reinstall everytime.

Are you able to sync with other apps?

Steve
9 dicembre 2020 | Versione 2.0.1

Really not sure what the point is of only allowing the most recent episode to be downloaded. Most of the feeds I listen to don't really work out-of-order, so this restricts me to stuff that has exactly one unlistened episode. I couldn't test the gpodder integration as it's down, as usual. I've tried to use gpodder multiple times over at least a decade, and it's never really worked very well and very often doesn't work at all. The search for a useful podcast manager for my Fenix 6 continues...

Risposta sviluppatore
16 gennaio 2021, LucaSax

Unfortunately the Fenix 6 (as well as any other Garmin device really) has so little memory and such a poor software support that doing this type of stuff is really painful. As you, I was surprised why no decent podcast apps exist, but as I started to work on one I realized why. That being said I'm working on it, so stay tuned! :)

Great idea. Gpodder.net is always down. Is there an alternative site somewhere? Thanks

Hi Matt, Currently the gpodder guys are having issues. Hopefully it will be solved soon!

Garmin's podcast retrieval options don't really exist, so I looked to see if a 3rd party app exists to bridge this gap. Sure enough, it exists, and I got it working with about 4 minutes effort. The app installed quickly, and I probably lost 2 minutes trying to use the app within Garmin Connect... but once I figured out that you configure your podcasts from the watch itself, the instructions were very straight forward! It didn't take long to retrieve the first podcast and have it playing - using the wifi on the watch. Really cool - and works better for me that Garmin's wifi auto sync (haha). It's rare that everything just works from start to finish on the Garmin, so I commend this app. I see that there is a "gpodder.net" integration, but this evening, when I tried to use that website, I found out that it was down. I'll try again later. I wonder if it would be difficult to add podcast subscription directly within the Garmin Connect Mobil App. Thanks again for this tool.

Thank you for the review! Unfortunately the guys at gpodder are having server issues. Hopefully it will be fixed in the coming days.

Dallan

Donated! This is fantastic - already better than Spotify, which I used before as you can 'queue' podcasts (spotify doesn't let you do that). Question - I wonder if a 'now playing' menu option might be good - it would take you into the main 'playing' screen? So you can resume where you left off. Currently if the app is closed (e.g watch restart or something), then you can't resume where you left off. Also, as someone else suggested - it might be good to be able to choose which podcasts to download as opposed to always downloading the very latest - some of the podcasts I subscribe to have several episodes per week, so I might want to, say, last week's one, but NOT download this weeks one. Anyway, amazing app. Well done.

Hi Dallan! Thank you for the review and the donation. I'm working to implement a way to select the episodes to download: it will be implemented in a future release.

Great app. Is there a way to choose which podcast episodes to download (within the 5 limit)

Risposta sviluppatore

Hi Matt, unfortunately there's no way to pick episodes yet! This has been requested by many users, so I will try to add it in future releases!

Great App. A little bit finicky to add new Podcasts but great stuff. Would recommend to add some kind of Podcast subscription management to the App Settings menu tself but other than that really good.

Hi! I just uploaded a new version (2.0.0) that integrates gpodder.net, a free podcast management service! This should make managing podcasts much easier!

Exactly what I was looking for. I've wanted a Podcast app like this for years. Not being tied to an external service is great. I wanted to make something like this myself but never had the time. Thank you for making this open source also.

Good idea. But why not giving the possibility to enter a list of podcast URL directly using the configuration on the phon? Entering a search string is painful with a watch with buttons.
