  • Amazing Podcast App

    By tot10ham
    One of the best features is the ability to use “smart speed” to let the app shorten silences. Allows the app to subtly shift the play rate on a way that’s almost imperceptible, but which allows for a great deal of time saving in the long run. I love this player and listen for 20+ hours per week.
  • Simple yet powerful

    I’ve tried a lot of podcast apps. Apparently, there is something about podcasts that makes developers want to complicate them as much as possible. Not Overcast! Subscribing and keeping up to date with your favorite podcasts is as easy as can be. And trying out an episode or two of something new is also simple. But powerful flexibility is also available if you need it, like podcast-specific playback speeds. My favorite extra feature is the ability to add podcast by feed URL. This allows you to listen to every podcast that’s out there, instead of being subject to gatekeepers in what you can or can’t listen to.
  • Full featured podcast app

    I’ve tried many apps out there and this is the only one that has all the features I want. The smart playlist is the feature that makes this the number 1 podcast app for me.

    It’s much better than the last two podcast apps I tried to use, and especially the smart speed feature
  • Amazing App

    I love this app! I bought the Apple Watch specifically so I could run and listen to podcasts without my phone. I was heartbroken when I came to find despite all my best efforts, I could not get podcasts from the Apple Podcast app to sync to my watch. Thankfully I found Overcast in a Google search to troubleshoot the problem! Now my broken heart is healed and I’m running phone free while listening to podcasts! The developer deserves a pat on the back for creating such a seamless syncing experience. I also love the option to download just an episode of a podcast instead of subscribing. I do wish there was an option to not download the newest episode of every podcast I subscribe to, but that’s truly not a huge deal.
  • Best podcast app ever

    By Ladyzoul
    Best podcast app hands down. With the ability to make playlists (even better; smart playlists) and tweak pretty much anything to your liking to enhance your personal pod experience, this app is super!
  • Outstanding

    By Venom77xx
    This podcasting app is one of the best I’ve ever used. Excellent when used with Apple Watch as well.
  • Unusable after recent updates

    By acv2019
    I’ve used the app for years but, I’m nearing the end of that. For well over a week the app constantly crashes, you don’t even have to do anything, just open it up and wait, it’ll crash within 10 seconds. No indication from support when this will be fixed, I’m tired of using the web version, not sure how much longer I’ll wait for a solution, if it actually comes. I’ve reinstalled the app multiple times, I’m on the latest version of iOS, no other app I use crashes like this. I’m not the only one either, others have developed this issue.
  • Bug: Playback jumps back

    By Veritas637
    There’s a bug in this latest version where rewinding a few seconds causes the playback to jump back to where it was before you tapped the rewind button
