Ratings and Reviews
Nice concept,Could be better.
Cool idea. But, downloading your audio files does require an Internet connection. This is OK, but when I have no service and still want to sync podcasts that I already downloaded on the phone to the watch, it just can't be done over Bluetooth, It requires an active Internet connection. In fact, the app won't do anything if there's no Internet connection. Sometimes I like to do stuff with GarageBand and other audio editing apps but would like a way to sync that file to the watch without Internet. Also when you sync files to the watch with this app, the audio sounds mono and compressed, what happened to the stereo quality of my music? It's great for Podcasts but not necessarily for music. Will stick to using iTunes to sync my music to the watch for now, But will use this for Podcasts and Voice stuff..
Developer making it better
At first books showed up on watch but never fully download. The developer quickly fixed this. Issues to continue to improve the app include:
- there doesn’t seem to be a way to get book files to play in the correct order.
- variable speed playback.
- a companion iPhone player that syncs position with the watch would be a good add.
- I haven’t been able to get the iCloud sync to work correctly with books.
Developer Response ,
Sorry about this, there is a bug in v1.0 that prevents content longer than 1 hour from syncing properly. There is a bug fix (v1.0.1) currently in review, it should be live soon and should fix your issue. Thanks for your patience!
Feature light, and quirky but works!
I’ve listened to two audiobooks with it. I wish it had volume controls, but somehow always switched out of app to the now playing widget, which has volume. Now playing widget next/previous buttons not optimized for audiobooks, however. They jump whole tracks, rather than jump seconds, so you have to switch back to app to rewind. But it works!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
