Best Apple Watch Podcast Player So Far


I’ve purchased all of the podcast players for the Apple Watch including Watch Player, Minicasts, Watch Casts, etc, and this is the best one so far. It freezes occasionally, but I really like the interface of Outcast better than the others. It displays graphics and episode descriptions on the Watch, and you can use use the crown to FF or RW. You have to turn Bluetooth off on the iPhone to quickly download episodes via WiFi, but this is a limitation with all the Apple Watch podcast apps. I would rank Watch Player a close second behind Outcast, mainly because of the interface and graphics.

Crisp, clean, functional


The developer made a straight forward usable app. There are no strange UI design choices(unlike other Apple Watch Podcast apps). Pro Tip: put your phone in Airplane Mode to force the Apple Watch to download podcast files over WiFi or cellular connections. Files will download much faster then the default Bluetooth connection. Just be sure to turn that airplane mode off when you are done.



I have been searching for a good podcast app for my Apple Watch since they came out. Outcast has finally delivered something that works. Yes you have to unpair your phone but the download is so fast that it doesn’t matter. I use Bose Soundsport earbuds and can control the volume from them. This is an easy quick way to load podcasts to your watch for a workout
