  • Thank you!

    To me listening to podcasts should be quick, easy and done without thought. Overcast is providing just that. You have all the functions you need in the free version and the adds are not intrusive. For me it was well worth the $10/yr to support the future development. Even though I consider myself an early adapter and enjoy changes to improve a product, I basically stopped listening to podcasts after the iOS update which changed the podcast app drastically. It is possible I am more forgiving to bumps in the development process when it is a small company or new product, neither of which describes Apple. With that said overcast does have some limitations that to me do not hinder the daily listening experience. The biggest I have noticed is searching for podcasts I am not always able to find what I’m looking for. An easy solution is to copy the url from Apple podcast app, use that in the search and there is no problem finding it. I also haven’t figured out a way to better organize all of my podcasts.
  • Corrupts long podcasts

    By RickSpagna
    I’ve been using this podcast app since the beginning of time (I paid for it back when the paid version removed ads). For at least a year (conservative estimate) it’s been corrupting long podcasts, usually the ones I listen to that are 2+ hours. Basically, you pause the podcast and when you come back later to resume, you get a 10 seconds of garbled playback then it deletes the episode. Don’t know what the deal is but it’s pretty frustrating.
  • New episodes don't

    By Vbbggdhbvgjvc
    The layout is visually fantastic, easy to comprehend what is played and what isn't. Well thought out UI overall. The sound quality blows away every other app. The only thing that is a negative, and seems so correctible, is the fact that new episodes do not download unless you click on downloads. This is at home on WiFi, with settings set to "download on WiFi." They sit in the queue and do nothing until you view them, and then they promptly download. It's kind of like the quantum measurement problem, an observer is required for no particular reason. Anyway sometimes I leave the house and hit the road only to find that all the new episodes are sitting there in the queue and will have to stream.
  • Best of the bunch!

    By HepCaribou
    Audio quality is excellent, handling high speed, leveling of audio, and removing extra silence especially well. Interface strikes a good balance between rich features and easy to use. Developer is committed.
  • Much better the iPhone default podcast app

    By coolrelaxed
    Functions better than most apps out there.
  • Great Interface and speed features

    By T-Dray
    I love the smartspeed feature in overcast! It seamlessly reduces silences and dead spots in podcasts meaning I can binge through new shows more quickly. Also, the organization of the shows and episodes is far superior to the new version of apples podcast app.
  • Best audio podcast app, hands down

    By mattip1
    Excellent app, stable and loaded with features. Keep up the great work!
  • The best podcast app– but this version has some bugs

    By JTB193
    Title sums it up. Don’t get me wrong– you should absolutely get this app. But lots of design bugs in this version– random blue dots showing on the screen, weird blurred lines screen when I pull down an episode card, elements randomly appearing letterboxed on the sides, etc. Given the developer’s wont to call out buggy software– I feel okay writing this here!
  • Misleading

    By Orbit724
    Downloaded this app because description says it supports play on Apple Watch, but that feature doesn’t seem to exist. Will try elsewhere. If Apple Watch functionality is not a dealbreaker for you, I’m sure this app is fine. As for me, I will be deleting this app.
