Have you ever wanted to do more with your Apple Watch without having to bring your iPhone along for the ride? Now you can go for a walk or run and listen to your favorite podcasts without having to have your iPhone. The app is called WatchPlayer, and it allows you to transfer podcasts from an iOS device on to your watch. Another cool feature is that you don’t need wireless earbuds either. You can use the watch’s built-in speakers to play your favorite podcasts from Cool
Blind Tech. Here is a description of the app from the developer.
Finally, take your Apple Watch and run with your favorite podcast and leave the iPhone at home. This works now synonymous without annoying transmission process through iTunes synchronization.
WatchPlayer transfers podcast episodes to the Apple Watch. These can be heard there without the direct connection with the iPhone. The podcast will be played in the background on the Apple Watch. The workout app can run simultaneously.
Thats how it works:
– Subscribe to a podcast in the app (feedlink must be known)
– Download the episode
– Transfer episode to the Apple Watch (this will take time and can vary depending on connection)
The app does not use trackers or other analytical tools. All rights and obligations are the responsibility of the respective podcast authors. The app represents only the functionality of the transmission to the Apple Watch.
