Will you be adding a companion app for Apple Watch?
When will the companion app be available?
We won't be ready on launch day for a number of reasons, including not wanting to release a product for a device we've never tested our app on! However, we do expect to be ready for an initial release within a few weeks of Apple Watch's availability.
What will the companion app do and what will it not do?
We're not giving away all the details yet but you should expect to feel familiar with the companion app's interface. You'll be able to browse your existing podcasts, episodes, and playlists as well as control playback on your phone via the the watch. The experience will be familiar but different due the watch's smaller size and yet to be determined performance.
At this time, 3rd party apps for Apple Watch are not stand alone and require you to have an iPhone within Bluetooth range of the watch. This is Apple's decision and there's nothing we can do about it until they begin allowing stand along applications on the watch. This is rumored to be happening later in 2015.
In the next several days we'll start posting some screenshots so you can get a taste for what's coming.
Thanks for your patience while we get this ready!
