  • Very Good Podcast App

    By Andrewside
    It works with my car’s apple play and the adjusted speed helps me get through the podcasts I listen to. The search function is great as well
  • Missing Chromecast is a Deal Breaker

    By SethSaysHey
    The fact Chromecast has had a solution that could be implemented in this app without having to jeopardize user privacy makes the omission that much worse. Otherwise it's a fairly decent app all around. I wish the premium version was just a larger one time lump sum rather than the subscription model. Also I wish there was a way to have multiple priorities for smart playlists. (Make these podcasts a priority, and then among the available episodes, sort by date). I also wish there was just a single "Delete Played" button. And the ability to schedule updates at certain times and days would be great.
  • Small Changes Made Big Difference

    By Jennimay
    The addition of swipe right to download and left to delete really made a positive difference. The player interface is still easy to use in the car on a commute. Sound quality is excellent and the smart speed and voice boost options help create the perfect listening experience for each user.
  • Great app

    By betscgee
    Just got this app so these are just first impressions but I already love it! Clear, simple but not basic, all the options and you can choose what you want. The worst thing about iOS native changes took away all choice.Thanks, Overcast people!
  • I was sure this was THE one

    By fourtyoneantz
    I’ve been seeking an all-encompassing podcast app for a while; one with all of the functionality I need to keep my podcasts organized. I was sure this was it. I downloaded and got to organizing: I made playlists for podcasts that I only listen to select episodes (Armchair Expert, Joe Rogan) and subscribed to ones that needed to be listened to in order i.e. true crime content. I finished my Rogan playlist (after selecting close to 30 episodes) and navigated away to create one for Armchair. When I went back into the Rogan playlist, all but 2 episodes disappeared. I tried again and had the same result. Went into my Armchair playlist and, sure enough, the same thing happened. I tested it out with a couple of new playlists - still the same result. Either I’m not understanding the functionality of Overcast’s regular playlist feature or I’ve fallen upon a massive bug. I reached out to the developer via Twitter - both the Overcast Twitter and his personal - but haven’t heard back. Pretty frustrated that I spent $9.99 on a premium version of this app for a main feature not to work. Will update if I can get some answers.

  • It’s a million times better than the Apple podcast app.

    By electrojunk
    I still don’t understand why there is no ability to shuffle podcasts. Maybe in a future update?
