* Android Auto support

* Import podcasts using using RSS feeds or an OPML file

This is a very useful app, the only standalone watch podcast app I could find. Out works well and the interface is nice, the only problem I have is that streaming podcasts over wifi will give you a error message halfway through and it won't go away until you force quit the app. This isn't that big of a problem for me as I would just rather download it anyways.

Downloads frequently fail. Issues with the UI: There's no way to access subscriptions from the watch, and it's hard to find them in the app. For some reason you can add the same podcast multiple times. Doesn't keep track of which episodes you've already listened to. There are only a some of the most recent episodes of the podcast available, not all.

Sorry you are having issues with Wear Casts. Not sure why you can't access your subscriptions from the watch, it's the first screen when the app loads. The downloads failing maybe because you are downloading over Bluetooth. Try downloading over Wi-Fi if possible. If you go to Settings -> Episodes you can change the number of episodes to return all.

I'm very glad this app exists. It's very easy to use and performs as described. If there is one thing I would change, it would be having the ability to arrange the podcasts in a custom order, like you can with the apps on Wear OS. I have gone into podcast settings and tried the "sort by" option, and I've tried long-pressing and dragging them but it doesn't seem to work. Of course this is a feature most could do without (the web version of Google Podcasts can't even do this) but it's something I would really like.
