Poor quality even with the premium version

I use this nearly every run. Syncs reliably and quickly. Plays back easily.

The best solution I've found for podcasts on my Fenix6X! I recently had a problem with auto-sync and reached out to the developer. He responded quickly and worked with me to solve the problem.

Totally frustrating. It won’t let me log into my account from my Garmin945. I’m logged in on my iPhone and online. Useless app. Harmon should drop it.

Un casino x configurarla e poi chissà come andrà

The trial period was ok. Clunky website and it would be better if the had a mobile app to make it easier to prioritise and manage feeds.
Now that the trial has ended I can't connect to the app from iConnect to move/delete/re-prioritise. I had to uninstall and reinstall to get the connection working again.
But at $5 per month, it's just not worth it when Spotify can play your podcasts for you. In this day and age it's an exorbitant price for what it does.

Use the free version to download bpm music only. Don't need auto refresh.

The app is buggy (not auto syncing when it's supposed to, requiring watch reboot to actually start playing, etc) and the pricing is straight up bonkers. The free version is practically useless, and the paid version is $5 a month. In a world where Netflix is $9, Disney+ is $6, and Amazon is free if you pay for shipping, $5 to kind of listen to podcasts when running is crazytown.

Works great. Though, giving the tariff, I am considering switching to Songlate as it can sync Podcasts through Google Play Music.

Cannot make it work. Garmin Connect app does not ask for login. Also, it is not very nice that they hide that you will have to pay to listen to more than one podcast.

In most cases, if Garmin Connect isn't asking for a login, that can be fixed by force-closing/re-opening Garmin Connect and/or restarting the watch. You can also ping us at [email protected] and we'll be happy to help out. In terms of pricing transparency, we're also open to suggestions, but right now we detail it on our homepage, our FAQ documentation, and in our ConnectIQ app store description.

Decent app, seems to work reliably in syncing podcasts across. The website interface is a tad clunky but works. I do think the subscription is a bit steep but worth it, on balance. An essential app for me.

Cool little app. much easier to navigate than spotify. If I want to listen to music I just switch back to my spotify app music playlist. Easy to download, sync and use. $5 a month is very reasonable. I will stick with this app.

Tolle Alternative für lange Läufe

Perfect app for all your podcast needs, easily sets me up for my long runs being able to load up podcasts over 2 hours long. Thanks to the Devs for making this possible

There are a lot of problems with this app. I’m not going to bash the developers but I do think gamin should step up and help them figure out how to make it work correctly. I currently have to reinstall almost every run to get a new podcast, and there is not a way to choose between runcasts and amazon music.

Hey Mark, if you hit us up at [email protected] we'd love a chance to help you out. We've had good luck getting folks squared away, especially recently now that we have access to more devices.

This works great and is an excellent solution to the mess that is Spotify podcast sync'ing. Between Amazon Prime for music and this for podcasts, have my media wants covered without needing to subscribe to Spotify. I appreciate the free option and the clarity around what's free and what's paid, both in the description (on ConnectIQ) and the dev's webpage. If other users aren't reading that material, it really doesn't seem like the dev's fault...

Really good App, happy to pay for it to keep it going. Giving it 4 Stars because the website is a bit clumsy when you search for podcasts or episodes. Would be good to invest in that. Synchronisation with Apple Podcast would be another amazing feature.
03 Mei 2020 | Versi 4.7.0
Good idea but I was surprised to find that you can only subscribe to one podcast unless you pay for a subscription. Don't bother downloading unless you're ready for yet another monthly fee.

Used frequently and love the app. However once you download you can’t switch between ru casts and Spotify. Annoying glitch.

Hi Mitch, we recently updated our docs at https://runcasts.com/faq to clarify how to switch music providers. That should help some, but if you're still having trouble, please contact us at [email protected] and we'd be happy to troubleshoot.

Absolutely perfect for my needs, even the free version. Syncs quickly too. Thank you!
18 April 2020 | Versi 4.7.0
Seems like it'd be great but you need to add functionality with the fënix 6 series watches. I have the 6S Pro and when trying to sync for the first time, get a "Use Phone to Sign In to Runcasts" during the process. Supposedly a window should pop up on my phone, but that's not the case. This needs to be addressed. Thanks.

It's great that we get a podcast app for free - something the Garmin community desperately needs.
But why does the app description say nothing about the restrictions of the free version? You are only able to have 3 episodes on your watch at a time and are only able to subscribe to one podcast.
Also, it's 2020. A quick video on how to set up the app would be really helpful and remove all the unnecessary complications. Tell your customers about the apps limitations of the free version up front and they might want to support you instead of tricking them into features that in reality are behind a paywall.

Really good app - I like the podcast queuing system and it helps take away the annoyance of managing podcasts. The compression system works well as Garmin watches are very short on memory but this does seem to result in a slight loss of quality on the audio. It's still completely listenable however and far superior to the unusable Spotify Podcast system on Garmin. Only one possible bug I might mention which is that it gives the "battery to low to sync" warning when my watch is on 50% charge - usually watch restrictions kick in when I drop below 20%. 50% seems like quite a high level of charge for syncing unless there is a particular reason for it. Great App! Thank you for creating it!

I have downloaded the app but it won't install. Not very functional.
20 Februari 2020 | Versi 4.5.0
I am playing with Free version since yesterday. Can't find how to refresh / resync podcasts? Initial sync when it was installed was ok. I have listened to 1 dowloaded episode completely and now I want to listen to other one. How I can do it?
27 Februari 2020, rconradharris
Hi Bogdan, I believe we were able to clarify the process with you via email. Just in case other folks run into the same issue: you can manually sync using the cog / gear icon on button-based watches. In the rare event that the cog / gear icon doesn't show up in the player, restarting the watch should fix that.
