  • Best podcast player ever

    By BubbaTheConqueror
    Overcast has all the features you want. Most important to me is the adaptive speed boost and silence trimming. Marco has done an amazing job!
  • So much better than apples podcast app

    By user18765
    I love how easy it is to use, sort and listen to my favorite podcasts. I also never have issues with podcasts loading. Where my podcast app often freezes when updating with the newest episodes, overcast has never had any issue streaming or downloading the latest episodes. Love it.
  • Watch app somehow got less reliable with the update

    By Zeyphersan
    5.0 was supposed to be this big update that included this awesome watch app, stand-alone playback, everything we wanted. It seems like it worked for some people, but it never worked for me, ever. Two of the screens that were supposed to show me playlists just never populated, and I never was able to get a podcast on the watch successfully. Each update failed to fix these issues. Finally 5.0.3 came along and got the playlists to fill, but still wouldn’t move any podcasts. To make matters worse, eventually the playlists disappeared again AND the watch app can no longer play/pause correctly, the button doesn’t function as it should. Play/pause is like the basics and the fact that it doesn’t work is baffling. This is after uninstalling and reinstalling both the watch app and the phone app in my troubleshooting. Doesn’t help that the developer’s email for feedback is a black hole. Several emails, not even a hint of a response, or even a “hey I know I’m working on it.” Plus one star because it’s still my favorite podcast app on the iPhone, but man the watch app seems to be missing and losing functionality each update. I finally had to uninstall it so I could play/pause correctly from the now playing screen. Will update if things ever get fixed.

    Sooo much better than Apple Podcasts. Very stable and easy to organize.
  • Glitchy

    By Vulgar demos
    Love the app but recent releases, including the latest, have had some serious playback issues. Sometimes thinks it’s playing and it’s not. Sometimes just doesn’t play. Force quitting fixes it temporarily.
  • Search function=perfection

    By RethinkD
    The only thing I didn’t like about this app (which behaves far, far better and is organized in a much more logical way than apple podcasts) was that there was no search function for episodes. Now, praise be, there is, and I can try to figure out if My Favorite Murder did a certain serial killer, or if SYSK covered this one topic I vaguely remember. Get this app for your podcasts.

    After the update, the app no longer appears on Apple Watch. Not in list of compatible apps. PLEASE FIX!!!
  • App crashes when launched

    Thanks to the latest update, Apple Watch stand-alone playback works perfectly: I can finally take my watch by itself on a run. Awesome! And even if you don’t have an Apple Watch, Overcast is still the best podcast app there is. Smart Speed has no equivalent anywhere else.
  • Getting buggier, no more attention to quality

    By phototrek
    Is this still the best podcast app,and I contribute with the optional subscription to keep the development going. Unfortunately, like so many things today, the quality is dropping and the developer doesn't seem to care even though bugs get reported. Podcasts get sorted randomly, every time I get into the car a random podcast starts to play, and so on. All of these things are reported with detailed steps to reproduce and it's only getting worse, the bugs just keep coming.
