As of today, third-party podcast app Overcast lets users sync downloaded pods to their Apple Watch for standalone playback.
The latest 3.1 update brings the much-requested feature to the popular podcast app, which was designed by Instapaper developer Marco Arment.
To take advantage of the new feature, users should access the Queue Menu (??) and select the Send to Watch option. Pending transfers should appear in the Downloads screen.
Overcast recently received a design overhaul to bring it up to speed with visual changes introduced in iOS 10. The latest update also includes a new dark app icon option for premium members (a $9.99 in-app purchase).
Overcast 3.1 is available as a free ad-supported app for iPhone and iPad from the App Store. [Direct Link]
