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.

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.

You can see progress of downloads by going back to the home screen after you've started a download. There will be a new menu item that lets you see download progress and cancel with a force press.
