MiniCast App Reviews

  • Don’t Bother

    By anitajean
    Go buy a coffee with the money instead. Was so excited to be able to leave my phone home on walks and still listen to podcasts but I was only able to download one podcast and now each time I try I just get an error message that “something’s wrong with this episode” no matter what podcast I try to download.
  • Unusable waste of $3.99

    By cgtexmex
    This is the 1st time I’ve been compelled to write a review. TLDR - it’s crap. I have a series 2 watch & iPhone 6S — I’ve spent 90 minutes attempting to get the app to work, but have been woefully unsuccessful. Don’t waste your time or money on this failure of an app.
  • I want my $ back!!!

    By kaatkl
    This literally doesn’t download!!!! How do I get my $ back?!?!
  • Doesn’t work, don’t download!

    By Scott The Reviewer
    Podcasts don’t download... they just stall. Do not purchase this app! Hopefully iTunes will refund my purchase.

    Not working!
  • Don’t waste your $3.99

    By akcpw
    Can I give zero stars? Just like everyone else...podcasts take hours to download (sometimes get close to 100% then suddenly back to 0%) then you can’t even listen to them once downloaded.
  • Literally non-functional

    By ChexxmiXX
    Worked once and never again with overcast or Apple podcast. Gets to 100% —sometimes — then resets and asks me to “download” again. Do not buy until bugs are fixed. I want my money back or a patch.
  • Waste of Money! Doesn’t work!

    By Not made anymore
    This is the biggest waste of money because the app doesn’t do its soul podcasts to your phone. I’ve tried several times to download podcasts following the instructions...the download percentage increases but never completes. I have not once had a complete download on any podcasts since purchased.
  • It just doesn’t really work

    By Saul Goode III
    This app really doesn’t work. It gets to about 50% and then it restarts over and over again.
  • Painfully Slow and frustrating

    By Mibwilso
    The user interface of the app is fine and it’s relatively easy to use, but the podcasts take forever to download (sometimes an hour or more). In addition the download progress indicator fluctuates frequently so it’s hard to tell how much has actually downloaded. Some have said that the reason for the slowdown loads is because of the watch itself and not because of the app, but either way, it makes this app virtually useless. You have to plan what podcasts you want to listen to well in advance if you want to have them sent to your watch in time for you to use them.
