Promising start, needs various fixes

The app is the only way to get certain files to copy and play on the Apple Watch. That’s a great thing.

App has a lot of little (surmountable) issues to put up with in the process of getting files copied to the watch.

No way to see file name so for multi part books can’t tell which part is which.

Can’t have file folders. All files lumped into one list.

Sync is kinda janky. Had to quit watch app and restart to see a newly added file.

Files appear to get re-encoded at a much worse audio quality when xferred to the Watch. Very poor, very noticeable. For me, not listenable.

Book chapters cannot be viewed or selected on Watch. Good luck figuring out where you are.

Tiny ‘back’ button in Watch, fail to hit the right target 80% if the time.

Crown spin back/fwd is nice feature.

Overall: bad

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..

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!
