  • Best podcast app just keeps getting better

    By toromei
    Overcast has saved me over 350 hours with Smart Speed since I started using it when it first came out. The care that goes into this app really shows. I’ve never had a better audio experience anywhere else, from quality to features to convenience. <3
  • Latest ‘upgrade’ has good ideas, but POOR execution

    By JaredC55555
    Positive aspects of the latest release: (v5) * The app displays how frequently podcasts’ episodes are released (if released regularly) * You can now search the podcasts you have downloaded * Seems to freeze less frequently after the app has been idle for a while Blunders of the latest release: * The ‘Unplayed’ episodes list also shows all of the episodes you’ve listened to completely and are marked ‘played’. You can see how this would be frustrating when you have podcasts that have a few hundred episodes and you’re trying to find just the episodes you haven’t listened to yet. I’ve reached out to the developer about this (last year, and again recently), but no response. * Just plain POOR use of screen space: - A generously sized search bar is ALWAYS present, not just when you scroll up (like in other apps) - The area for viewing show notes has been cut down significantly. Lots and lots of scrolling! - The spacing of in the episodes list is awkward. It only fits about 4.5 episodes on the episode list at any given time. It’s like I’m reading a large print book.
  • Podcasts on the watch ushers in a new era

    By Sigrid710
    Gorgeous new playing screen and the setup for transfer to watch is the best thing this side of cellular streaming (which even Apple hasn’t pulled off). Best podcast app, worth the subscription price
  • Everyday Use For Years And Love It.

    By kjpatten13
    Everyday to and from work for 3 years now and I have nothing bad to say once so ever about he app. I have never had a single issue. Great app, thank you!
  • Always Great and Now Even Better

    By mikemilzz
    Overcast has been great for a long time but with the most recent update it just got even better. The new design is fresh, and the offline Watch playback is a huge addition. There are many podcast players out there but none made by someone as passionate about podcasts and audio quality.
  • Pausing every 30 sec when phone is locked

    By GaretBo
    Love the refreshed look of the app for iOS 12 and watchos5. But I have to keep my phone unlocked when connected to my cars Bluetooth so the app doesn't stop playing. Everytime I lock my phone the podcast stops playing after like 30 sec ☹️
  • Please bring back swipe back to close

    By ILikeApps333
    Swipe from left should dismiss as it used to. Thanks!
  • Really Overcast? I mean, come on..

    By Sac59345934
    Why would someone plan to remove a feature loved by many? They have to be insane to do that. Where is the progress bar above the collapsible audio player? Please bring it back.
  • Simply a wonderful app

    By K. James McClure
    Love this app. I’ve used it for years, and this update makes it much better in many ways. This is of the apps I recommend to people the most.
  • Good, but lacking

    By llr415
    Missing the option to add all episodes of a newly subscribed to podcast which was available on previous versions
