  • Crashes consistently

    By Salecius
    I just installed the app on my iPhone 7 Plus but after importing my podcasts from another app, it continued to crash despite restarting the app several times.
  • Well Designed App That Makes Listening a Pleasure

    By jw#ns
    Great app to look at but who looks at a podcasting app? What makes Overcast special is that it works the way I expect it to and supports the manner in which I like to consume podcasts. It’s simple to setup automated playlists and change the order in which podcasts or episodes are played. I usually listen when running, so continuous and uninterrupted playback is huge. Phone-free shortcuts to jump backwards mean I never miss anything and watch support is very welcome, on those occasions where I run with an Apple Watch.
  • Failed downloads

    By *3L15A*
    On one podcast, all past episodes (over 100 of them) downloaded unexpectedly. While current “available” episodes aren’t downloading. Very frustrating!
  • Don't waste your money

    By SrAmn Santos
    10 dollars waste for being able to listen to my podcast in my Apple watch. There is no option, I spent 10 dollars and still no option. I sent messages and Twitter twice to the developer with no response. I want a refund because it's a rip off.
  • Smart Speed MAKES this app

    By piggypoodles
    I’m a fairly avid podcast listener - my second favorite feature is that I can make smart playlists, like one that puts all my news podcasts together so they go one after another in the morning. What really makes me an Overcast devotee is the Smart Speed feature, which you can turn on for just some podcasts, turn off for specific ones, or leave on for all of them. Smart Speed finds places it can speed up your podcast without any real cost to listening quality. I save time without having to listen to hamster voices! I do think this feature could be improved, but my biggest gripe is that there is no way for me to see half-played podcasts, if I have to stop listening in the middle of one, I can’t sort them to put the ones I’ve started at the top. I’d really like an update which includes something to separate those episodes that I haven’t finished yet from the ones I have!
  • Please consider Google Casting capability before I switch to Casts

    By LtLuLz
    Hi - I love your app, I just want an app that will play throughout my google home-filled house and Casts does this very nicely - would you be able to please add this functionality? Update 6/18/18 - Casts is now my main podcast app and I am happy - will not be updating my subscription
  • The best out there.

    By boy genie
    In my opinion, there's no better pod app. Request: more icon options for paid users! Black and white for OLED screens would be amazing.
  • Great podcast app

    By Anonymous recreational gamer
    Much better than the one that comes with iPhones by default. My only complaint is that it is sometimes difficult to find episodes that I haven’t yet listened to in podcasts with many episodes, but it’s not a big deal.
  • Great app, but not working with CarPlay

    By Object.Method
    Update: Still experiencing the same issue with our new car. Please fix! My favorite podcast app for years now, but I have issues using it with CarPlay. Pressing play on a podcast in All Episodes via CarPlay interface never actually plays. I have to press play on the phone instead. Please fix! Message me for more info. I’d be glad to help!
  • Excellent app

    By StupendousMan
    I won’t repeat the accolades that so many other reviewer‘s have given this app, suffice it to say that it is excellent and well worth the money. I deducted one star because I don’t like the podcast discover feature. It’s clever podcast discovery is tied to Twitter, but I would prefer something that is more akin to what the stock podcast app offers. There are new and trending podcast that I simply won’t ever hear about if I rely on Overcast.
