  • Customization is wonderful!

    By Winter0001
    I have the free version and it works great! I love being able to customize playlists and expand episode details easily. The smart speed is great, and I am easily able to customize speed per podcast rather than for all podcasts all of the time (although you could do that if you wanted to). I appreciate all the ways I can make podcasts play how I want to hear them. I feel like I have control in a small part of my life and that makes me happy 😜
  • The number one podcast app for me

    By kirillchufarov
    Simple navigation and smart speed. Like it!
  • Best app I’ve ever downloaded

    By Themusicman08
    I don’t really have any negative comments about this app at all. This is great because I don’t really like the default podcast application built into the iOS. I found it cumbersome and a bit annoying to navigate. Are use voiceover and this is a great replacement. I would like to make one suggestion if I may. I understand that in order to be notified that podcasts are available, you must keep the app open and in the background running in the app switcher. Is there a way in the next update or release to be notified about new podcast episodes if the app is closed and not running? I would really like to see this. Keep up the good work.
  • Marco... You're a genius.

    I was extremely skeptical of this app before I downloaded it. I had the podcast app on my phone already and it did exactly what I expected, it played podcasts. I wasn't really sure what added benefit a third party app would bring, but after hearing about it time and time again from the actual podcasters I was listening to, I finally decided to download it, and I'm so thankful I did. The Smart Speed function is absolutely brilliant. I've saved 2 ½ hours in just the 10 days I've had the app, and the EQing from the vocal boost effect is perfect, I used to have a huge problem with having to blast podcasts in noisier situations, but now I find I have no problem hearing everything clearly. And the recommend feature is perfect and I am absolutely clueless why Apple doesn't have this in their app. It seems so basic, but the recommendations are flawless, I've nearly tripled how many podcasts I'm subscribed to. Thanks Marco. Keep up the good work! Update 4/6/16 Became a patron to get Dark Mode and Casey and John were right. Dark Mode is your Hat Marco. Keep up the great work! Update 5/20/19 Still the best podcast app. Hands down.
  • The best

    By michaelcoury
    I have tried more “podcatchers” than I care to admit, but I always come home to overcast! thanks Marco, keep up the exceptional work

  • Great podcasting app

    By Eric0805
    Great controls and straight forward usability
  • Best app ever

    By oglcnac
    Whoever designed this loves podcasts and sharing. It’s the best, mist stable app. The ability to listen to podcasts at 2x speed while having the voices sound as 1x is incredible. There are so many delightful details in this app. I love it!!
  • Smart speed and voice boost are amazing

    By Rob Vees
    I was wary of third party podcast apps so I stayed with Apple’s crash-happy version for far too long. I discovered Overcast and my listening experience is so much better.
  • When you think podcasting can’t get any better

    By Lefrad
    ...a friend recommends Overcast. So many features that I didn’t know I needed have made my podcast listening so much more enjoyable. I recommend it for all serious listeners.
