  • New version is even better !!!!!!!!

    By guy9999
    Here’s another update. This application continues to get better and better fast affective I don’t know how anybody could rate this less than five stars. So I have a new update for the new version version 4. It always looks amazing and it still does. I actually sent an email to the developer and requested that we could set the fast-forward and rewind times and he created an entire menu that is amazing. Basically this is everything that you could want and a podcast application. Pay the money it’s not very much and it will help to continue to develop this amazing project Updated I have completely switched over to this and so happy with my decision and I became a patron as well I am using this for speed listening over downcast and it's amazing Currently I've saved 37 hours due to smart speed!!!
  • Still awesome, but why, Apple? Why?

    By Oddj0bs
    11/22/17: Overcast continues to be the best of the iPhone podcast apps, but I wish Apple would give developers the tools they need to make it as easy to listen to podcasts on the watch as it is on the phone. I run to podcasts more than I do to music. Why, Apple? Why? 4/28/17: Volume control via the Digital Crown is great. I no longer need to fiddle my way to (or toggle) the Now Playing app (there's an app for that?) just to adjust the volume. Thanks again! Updated 4/21/17: Upload to Apple Watch! Thank you so much for adding this feature! I can finally run without an iPhone strapped to my arm.
  • Great player, annoying bug

    By Ram RS
    The creator of this app is one of the best in the business, so naturally this is a great app. That being said, I hate the inability to hide ads with a simple purchase. Also, there’s this strange bug where the app downloads months-old episodes of random podcasts at random times. Really weird.
  • Needs documentation

    By IdahoBruce
    I generally LOVE Overcast. Would be much better with adequate documentation. Example - how to set playback speed, how do smart playlists work
  • Good switch for podcasts

    By Paige loves words with friends
    I was looking for an alternative to my apply podcast player because it lost the function to continue playing the next podcasts. I have found overcast to be user friendly and I like the set up. The 30 sec skip is very convenient.
  • Flawless

    By Armrod50
    Easy to navigate. Great features. My favorite player.
  • Best podcast app I've used so far

    By Dillandh
    I really like it, what it says above is true, and I plan on sticking with it. Keep up the good work over there!
  • Wow

    By Michiev0us
    I’ve been using this app for the last few months and have had no disappointments. I like that you can set your episodes to stream only. There’s not a podcast yet I haven’t been able to find. No obnoxious ads.
  • Clean App

    By Aja_Cintron
    When Apple put out their new iOS, the podcast app became a dumpster fire, so I started looking for a new way to pod. This app is clean and easy to understand. No frills, just easy listening. Good job! One minor complaint is not being able to organize pods other than by alphabetical order.
  • Extremely happy with switch to Overcast

    By Kern Canyon Camper
    After using Apple’s Podcast for years, with release of iOS11, I needed to find an alternative. Couldn’t be happier with Overcast. Functionally it does all I need and the GUI is just sublime. One feature it took me a while to figure out ways how to save episodes that I wish to return to for future listening and sort them by folders. What I do is to create a new folder and name it for that particular podcast. I then save the episode of that podcast to that folder, and then remove it from my folder of un-listened to episodes. I also clicked the button to keep podcasts until deleted and also I set the limit of episodes per podcast to all. For each podcast I can now save episodes that I wish to return to. After using it for a week, figuring out how to save episodes for future reference in a way that didn’t just have them all in one list, and exploring all its other functionality to make sure it is just right for me, I upgraded to ads-free to support the product. I love the little touches like differentially setting the number of seconds to reply and fast forward, the thick scroll bar to move back and forth through the episode, the voice enhancement and intelligent speeding up of play by shortening the pauses, and much more. It is both practical and whimsical. Thanks to Marco for making it so much fun and intuitive to use.
