  • Censorship much?

    By chkur6
    This developer has decided to restrict access to certain shows based on his political beliefs. He actively removes shows from the feed. Also the UI, specifically the way podcasts are listed and organized, is clumsy and non-intuitive. I much prefer other players ways of handling podcasts. The others also value free speech. You can hear him talk about what a hero he is on his own podcast where he gushes about removing podcasts from the feed.

    This app works great. It is easy to add and delete podcasts and to start and stop them unlike my previous player. Awesome app!
  • Suppression of Speech & Censorship

    By ColinVsGravity
    The developer of this application has admitted that he bows to angry pressure from far-left leaning advocacy groups. The word he actually used was “bullied” when describing their tactics. Nobody should use this application for as long as the people running it are going to listen to angry keyboard warriors instead of telling them where to stuff it.
  • Best podcast app periods

    By EconsCake
    If you’re still using apple podcast, come on what’s wrong with you. Overcast Has been my go to podcast app for quite some time now. I have tried other services like Castbox and I just didn’t care for it. But overcast it’s just so simple and basic and does what you need it doesn’t have any frills. Downloads your podcasts that you want to listen to and they are just there and there’s not a bunch of different windows it’s the it’s the best one
  • Hate speech

    By leeboski
    The developer doesn’t have the right to determine what hate speech is and is nothing but a liberal bot with his banning of nratv and jones. The user has the SOLE RIGHT of determining what content THEY may wish to enjoy. I do not need the help of lame hilbots making decisions for me. That’s what fascism is. If I could give a zero I would. The stock apple app works fine except for the CEO pulling the same stuff. I wonder what Steve would say...
  • Great app

  • Great podcast app!!!

    By combst
    Overall great functionality and great access to my favorite podcasts. Only issues that I’ve had are with notifications coming through when new episodes are available. I won’t find out until I click into the app sometimes. Other than that I’ve really enjoyed Overcast!!
  • Disappointed

    By mrwho609
    I like your podcast in general but when you start taking away peoples right to share a podcast just because you don’t like the person for political reasons I lose respect for you
  • This app censors your feeds

    By Pixelnate
    I deleted this app because the developer has decided to block sites he doesn’t like. While I don’t listen to Alex Jones, I vehemently reject restrictions on free speech, and the act taken by this developer is akin censorship. I didn’t pay for this app to be told by him what I can and can’t listen to. If you believe in free speech you should also delete this app. There is no telling which sites he’ll be blocking next!
  • Easy to use

    By Makieus
    Apple podcast is very lacking. This app has made it easy to select and continually update the various podcasts I listen to
