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!)

Nice band. Worked well. Need to be sure to watch the video on using the tool to adjust the band.

never receive my purchase

I contacted the store but they never replayed to me i don't recommend to buy here!

Sadie, the elder, says .....

Not only is this iWatch such a practical means of holding my watch while charging, it’s a hoot - looks like my original Mac. I love it.

The case doesn’t totally align but it does it’s job. The part that stinks is that it attracts lint and dust because it’s silicone.

Great tidy solution

You know what happens, all your devices need a charger. 2 iPhones, an Apple Watch, iPad and more. My old solution was fast charger with 4 USB outlets plugged in to an outlet in the kitchen. Worked, but not pretty.

Let me start by saying this charger looks great. I got rid of all the other cables and keep this out in the kitchen. Much tidier! Phones charge quickly. Apple watch does too but you to be careful that it goes on right. Also, I have a metal band on mine so I have to close it before I put it on the stand or else it would rest on the screen of the phone below it.
