Ratings and Reviews
Does not download to iwatch
Do not purchase this app. It does not download podcasts to the iwatch.
Go buy a coffee with the money instead. Was so excited to be able to leave my phone home on walks and still listen to podcasts but I was only able to download one podcast and now each time I try I just get an error message that “something’s wrong with this episode” no matter what podcast I try to download.
Unusable waste of $3.99
This is the 1st time I’ve been compelled to write a review. TLDR - it’s crap.
I have a series 2 watch & iPhone 6S — I’ve spent 90 minutes attempting to get the app to work, but have been woefully unsuccessful. Don’t waste your time or money on this failure of an app.
