    Zack SheppardBuilding ideas. (Can build yours, too!)
    Pros: 

    - Works (mostly) like it promises to! Was able to play music over LTE/Wifi without my phone after about 30 seconds of setup! Amazing!

    Cons: 

    - Offline download has no feedback. Can't tell if mine is in progress or if it's broken.

    - I wouldn't be surprised if Spotify shuts it down.

    I have been hoping beyond hope for this app for months so I could leave my phone at home while I run. I was very disappointed when Spotify announced they were releasing a watch app with neither standalone playback nor offline playback. It's pretty astounding that this developer quietly beat Spotify to the punch and that PH was the first I heard of it. This should be getting more buzz because their app really does just work as promised and it came out the same day as the official alternative.

    Zack Sheppard has used this product for one day.

On the same day as the official Spotify for Apple Watch launched 👀 cc @rrhoover
It's got some quirks, but it's the initial release from a one-person operation. It's frustrating that the official Spotify watch app is getting all the attention when it's just a Connect remote, where Apollo is the streaming/offline playback app everyone is disappointed the official app isn't (yet).
Crashed upon opening app on WATCHOS 5
Awesome app! A bit laggy on my series 1 but it's suppose to be so, I think 😄, even though, was able to play music over WIFI without phone and download some playlists for offline use. Well done!
Only available in US app store 🙁
@inthe0n Nope, available in France too.
@akdm_ Oh that’s odd, not available in Spain (?)
