This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
Finally, go running with your Apple Watch and your favorite podcast or exercise other sports and leave the iPhone at home.
1. Select Pods from Main View
2. Press leftmost button in ToolBar on Main View to select Pod for transfer
3. Do 1. and 2. with other Pods if you like
4. Press most left Button in NavigationBar to start the transfer
WatchPlayer transfers podcast episodes directly to the Apple Watch. These can be played there without the direct connection with the iPhone. The podcast will be played in the background on the Apple Watch. The workout app or other apps on the watch can be started simultaneously.
On the iPhone, WatchPlayer is a complete podcast manager and player. In a directory you can put the sources of his favorite podcasts and can load individual episodes to the iPhone and if you would like to listen to them right there or directly to the Apple Watch for transfer.
To listen to the podcasts on the Apple Watch, you need Bluetooth headphones. Apple has recently taken the support of the built-in speaker of the Watch from the app developers. It also takes a long time until the episode on the watch was broadcast.
Since watchOS 4 / iOS 11, the WatchApp of audio apps on the clock * is automatically started *. There is no way to stop this. You can only set this behavior globally for all apps in the Watch settings. Therefore you can find on the second side of the WatchApp of WatchPlayer an iPhone Control Screen, via which you can remote control the iPhone's player.
The app does not use tracker or other analytical tools. All rights and obligations are the responsibility of the respective podcast authors.
What's New in Version 2.2.5
Watch Player Version 2.2.5
I decided to remove the progress indicator on Apple Watch. This has caused irritation to many users in the past because it is not accurate and unreliable. Therefore, the display of files in transmission on the iPhone is now accurate.
So, if files are marked as in transmission on the iPhone, then that's true. Even if the transfer time takes several hours. As often described, developers can not influence transmission speed.
Best leave iPhone and Apple Watch close together after the start of the transfer...
+ Easier way to send Pods to Apple Watch by simply press transfer button of each Pod
+ Visual marker on iPhone to provide a status when a transfer is in progress
+ Number of active Transfers are listed in Section Header
+ Cancellation of transfers on iPhone is now possible
+ Complication to launching WatchPlayer from Watch Face
+ Bug fixes
Die die im Moment einzige und funktionierende Möglichkeit Podcasts auf die Watch zu bekommen um so ohne Telefon joggen zu gehen!
...um die neue No-Smartphone Phase noch weiter auszudehnen.
Preismodell ist auch Klasse. Laden, nutzen ubd anschließend den Preis zahlen, der es Dir Wert ist. Top!!!!
The app crashes when accessing the Order 66 feed.
I‘m also missing an option to auto-download unplayed episodes.
