App Reviews

  • The Gold Standard of podcasting

    By jfh_007
    Absolutely the best podcast app that you will find in the App Store. I have found another app that comes close to matching the sound quality found in Overcast. Also, such a classy act by Marco to promote other podcast apps. I had already purchased 4 of the five; I went ahead and purchased the other to show my support for Indy devs. It's so easy to be a subscriber of an app that is continuously updated. I love the new app design language!
  • Seriously the Best Podcast App

    By TheLogan117
    I have been using this for a couple years now as my only podcast app and I couldn’t imagine using anything else. Overcast is truly the best. My favorite feature (that I recently discovered) is the ability to log in on a web browser and upload audio files. This is perfect for me as one of my main podcasts has archive episodes all the way back to 2011. These have to be downloaded on the web so, again, perfect.
  • Love...but.

    By jeffreyladd
    I do really like the interface. My only complaint (and its recent) is why Overcast is not an accepted service to connect to Sonos. I almost moved to Pocketcast to get connected. Then I gathered my wits about me.
  • Just Switched to Overcast!

    By Htd68
    Just switched to Overcast after the terrible update on Pocket Casts. Overcast seems to be a much better platform to listen to my Podcasts. In particular, I like the ability to be able to limit episodes to just one in a filter. I like news podcasts that are updated every hour and my filters in Pocket Casts were full of obsolete, old podcasts. In Overcast, I can limit each podcast to just the latest episode.
  • The absolute best

    By hockeyking655
    The best podcast player hands down. Once you go Overcast you don’t go back. I have not even thought of using another player since I got Overcast and the Premium version. 5/5 forever!
  • This is so much better than Apple

    By Jenn298
    This is so much better than dealing with the latest Apple update nonsense
  • iWatch stand-alone ability is awesome

    By rcole1958
    Fantastic app, if you have an iWatch. The reasonably priced premium version allows you to upload your own mp3 files for stand-alone listening on a cellular iWatch, as well as stand-alone streaming of your favorite podcasts. No need to drag your iPhone along on your workouts! Now, all that’s needed is the ability to stream internet radio stations and this will be a 6-Star app!!
  • Moved from Pocket Casts

    By Chip Fillingane
    The smart resume and vocal boost are clearly Superior to other podcast apps. Really powerful playlist options. Only thing I miss is the grid interface, and the ability to arrange podcasts arbitrarily.
  • Good app but has some bugs

    By Tactical Texan
    I really like this app and it is WAY better than the apple podcast app. However, when I try to play a podcast, or when I pause a podcast and then hit play again, sometimes it just stays paused and I have to start playing a different podcast and then go back to play original podcast in order for it to work. I would like the app a lot more if they fix this bug.
  • The Best!

    By Stroudy10
    Hands down the best Podcast app there is. You can use it for free, but I'm happy to pay the 10 bucks a year. Worth every penny. Love the smart lists. Love the  Watch features. Highly recommend. Marco does it again!
