That’s one of the more complex solutions being considered.
Could also do multi-part transfers, etc. https://twitter.com/spitf1r3/status/1052177204598181888
Sorry about this. The Apple Watch file-transfer framework has an undocumented 100 MB limit.
Overcast transcodes the files to be smaller, but even that can only fit about 4 hours of reasonable quality into that size.
More complex solutions are being considered for the future. https://twitter.com/amananuraj/status/1052129337334468609
Today’s 5.0.3 update dramatically increases the reliability of Apple Watch transfers and other phone-to-watch communication.
Auto-Sync to Watch is also now OFF by default. If you use it and never touched the switch, you may need to go re-enable it in the settings screen.
5.0.2 is out now! Bugfixes, selective Watch Auto-Sync, Reduce Haptics option, and complications for Series 4 Watch faces.
New Apple Watch Series 4 owners: Sorry I didn’t build the new complication sizes in time. Coming very soon.
Cellular on the watch is not needed (and not used). https://twitter.com/sethkjolly/status/1041792753292726272
No. The Watch app simply plays at whatever speed each podcast is set to play on the iPhone app. https://twitter.com/aelman/status/1041789751873818624
Series 1 and higher. Anything that can run watchOS 5. https://twitter.com/timhamm/status/1041783327366164482
Yes. 5.0 only made under-the-hood changes that made CarPlay much faster and more stable, but didn’t change or add to its interface.
More CarPlay improvements are planned for later this year. https://twitter.com/Jeff_Hatz/status/1041782359303974912
Sorry, this is a funny bug. Fixing soon.
The Siri Shortcuts list offers two speed shortcuts: 1x, and whatever your current speed is. (It can change later and the created shortcut will still work.)
But if your current speed IS 1X, “1x Speed” shows up twice in the Shortcuts list. https://twitter.com/ekoranek12/status/1041781561790746625
Overcast 5 adds Siri Shortcuts, watch playback, and search https://sixcolors.com/post/2018/09/overcast-5-adds-siri-shortcuts-watch-playback-and-search/
I considered this, but decided it wasn’t worth the clutter cost since there’s a systemwide setting built into iOS. https://twitter.com/computerality/status/1041775404061798400
Overcast 5 is a major update that brings a new Now Playing screen, Siri shortcuts, a standalone Watch app (!), and more.
