MiniCast App Reviews

  • Does not work

    By Bob111111117
    Just paid $4 to be able to send podcasts to my watch and ..... it doesn’t work. Shows podcast playing but will not play on my AirPods
  • Simply Doesn’t Work

    By Dbw2459
    The developer blogs blame Apple and the watch but this app has never worked. Seems like it’s designed to get you through the demo and pay for the app.
  • Terrible

    By Tesmithp
    Too many steps for a manual sync that just flat out doesn’t work. There should be a refund for apps like this.
  • Scam - Don’t waste your time or money

    By MaggieRR
    Even testing with 5-minute podcasts, I have not been able to successfully download an episode. The most I’ve seen the download percent get to is 30% and then the download fails or restarts.
  • Waste of money

    Downloads never finish. Don’t waste your time.
  • Doesn’t work!! Goodbye $4.

    By kgreenwd
    I experienced what other reviewers are saying. The podcast never loads onto the watch. I let this baby try to load one podcast, overnight. Progress was extremely slow. It was at a 100% the next morning, but nothing would happen with it. I couldn’t play it, I could only reinitiate the download... Please give me my money back your product doesn’t work!!
  • App is completely useless, so is customer support

    By NancyBautista
    I send them and email before writing this review, gave the a week and they never got back to me with answers. I haven't been able to use this app, only worked with the sample pod cast that came with, any other podcast I try to download keeps resetting to 5% and never finish, so is completely useless. Hey customer support if you read this please I want a refund ASAP you're scamming people with this useless app, the Apple store should take it down.
  • I can’t believe I paid for this...

    By Olandoan
    Utterly worthless. It does not download podcasts to the Apple Watch as advertised.
  • Doesn’t work!

    By Bono_GoC
    Unable to get a podcast download past 50%. Very unstable, unusable app! Disappointing that Apple still doesn’t have a native podcast app for the Apple Watch!
  • Unreliable at best

    By dingbatdoug
    Getting a podcast to be listed on the watch is an awkward, five or six step dance, but at least it will reliably get there. But you can’t start playing until it fully downloads, which works maybe one time in ten. It’ll either never start, go extremely slowly, or best of all, get up to 100% and then quit, throwing you back to the “Download” button. Rebooting the watch doesn’t help. Doing one a time doesn’t help. I wish I knew the magic trick.
