  • Another heartfelt thank you

    By sciguybj
    Amazing for podcast aficionados. It's so obvious that Marco (the developer) truly understands listeners' needs and wants and has created an app for us, him included.
  • Great podcast app, but...

    By Jim Clark
    The CarPlay functionality is busted. I can’t start playing from CarPlay, I have to open the app on my phone to get it playing. The killer features of this app are the audio dynamics and time compression.
  • Excellent, occasional crashes

    By andrew00david
    Excellent, though I get occasional crashes on start until I reboot phone
  • Huh. No previous review from me?

    By PhelineCat
    Crashing constantly. I've restarted it at least a dozen times today and it's cut my listening ability in about half for the last several days. Adding an episode to a playlist is a slow, slow process; it's frustrating and exhausting. I even downloaded a few pod player apps but have more interest in seeing this fixed than using something else. ________________________________________________________________________ I've been using this since Apple released iOS 11 and broke the native player (and landscape keyboard and I don't remember what else…). Turns out I love having more flexibility for playback speed and silence shortener. Critics of the increased speed don't understand our brains now register that as normal and "normal" speed as slow. Strict and limited choice of 1.0, 1.25. 1.5, 2.0 don't work because the line isn't smooth and proportional. Overcast is missing important stuff- "listen to next" or Cloud storage. I have about 50 podcasts and some are serial fiction or investigations so I want the season handy even if there's no chance I'll see any Wi-Fi all day. Sometimes simple access to the season is all I need so "up next" list add on or downloading from the Cloud would satisfy. It might be the only way to get me to update to the point of eliminating the landscape display since the trade-off hasn't been worthwhile yet.
  • Great interface!

    By DamiensRush
    It does everything I want out of a podcast app. Also the designers attention to detail in things like the settings interface is awesome.
  • Excellent

    By BrianJHaley1980
    The most intuitive app I have found for listening to podcasts
  • There is Podcast then there is overcast

    By sloanb
    I’ve used many many podcast apps but time and time again this is the one that is dead simple and just works. Well worth the investment to the developers whom take the time to keep it perfect. This is the one folks click get now.
  • Excellent App, Subscription Totally Worth it!

    By Topchee
    Overcast is one of the few apps that I instantly fell in love with and its my go to app for listening to podcasts in the car! The subscription is totally worth it and it helps out small developers like Overcast — happy to support them 😀. I also love the ability to change back to the System Font which is my preferred font, easy playlist creation, themes, and overall a top-notch app. It’s getting a special place on my dock! Keep up the great work, looking forward to what you’ll do next.
  • The best app for podcasts

    By jsauce15
    It’s the app ketchup you’ve always wanted for your podcasting fries. (The dark theme is nice and file uploads are a podcaster's dream.)
  • Nice features but ...

    By Memo tomato
    Excited to try out this app, especially for the playlist feature. But the first dozen episodes of my favorite podcast are missing. They’re available in the Apple podcast app and everywhere else but here. And those are the episodes I most wanted to add to a playlist. What the heck?
