Overcast app lets you send podcasts to Apple Watch

Superior iOS podcast app Overcast has issued a new 3.1 update, allowing users to send individual podcasts to their Apple Watch to listen to when they’re not in the immediate vicinity of their iPhone.

This is something that can’t be done with Apple’s official Podcasts app, even though users can send audio files from the iOS Music app.

If you’re someone who enjoys listening to podcasts, and who goes out jogging or does some other form of exercise that isn’t necessarily convenient to carry your iPhone, it’s an important update that’s going to be warmly received by users.

How to transfer podcasts to Apple Watch with Overcast

To access the feature, go to the Queue Menu on the iOS app, and then choose the “Send to Watch” option. Any pending transfers will appear on the Downloads screen. There’s the option to transfer several podcasts at once.

Overcast is available to download for free, although you can pay to remove ads and add additional minor features for a $9.99 subscription. (In the latest update, that subscription also adds an extra dark theme icon — if that’s something that’s likely to be important to you!)

Missing one (or two) key element

Make it work with Magsafe, perhaps by adding a bamboo backrest with an indentation for a MagSafe puck, and you'll have a winner. Add a shelf on the other side with charge pad for AirPods and it would be perfect!

40 day review

When asked how I like the product I ordered from Cult of Mac 40 days ago...the answer is, I’m still waiting on the product to arrive! Never would have ordered it if I had any idea that it would take this long to arrive!

Perfect stand

The stand is perfect for the mag changer and adds a little style to the nightstand or desk.

Fantastic product

The simplicity of the stand and the way it works with my existing MagSafe. The look, the angle of the phone, just like apple products it just works.

Great product!

I really like the Elago MS1 stand for my iPhone 12. The angle is great and it fits the Apple MagSafe charger perfectly. The angle is not adjustable but the angle it sits at is perfect. It takes up some space on your desk/night table but again that doesn’t bother me for my space. The product is well made with no visible flaws. No shipping to Canada would be my only complaint.
Overall a great product.
Thank you!
