Overcast App Reviews

  • Very happy with it

    By Gipop
    This was my first podcast app I’ve ever used. I read several on line ranking and reviews and went with it. So far so good. It’s been very easy to use and I found it very intuitive with a short learning curve. If I have a criticism at all it seems like it won’t download podcasts unless your on a WiFi network. Which while I’m on the road sometimes is a bummer when I’d like to load another podcast to listen to. But other than that I think it’s great
  • Very Happy

    I like Overcast for podcasts. I like the features for saving, subscribing to podcasts and creating playlists. I also like the designers sense of humor. Thanks!
  • Great podcast app

    By RalphRalphy
    Love the Smart Speed and voice boost functions. That’s why I stopped using the Podcast App on my phone.
  • Amazing

    By Sabster.21
    **UPDATE** Dropping to 4 stars because lately this app just drains the life out of my battery. I’m not sure why or if there’s a way to stop it, but my morning podcasting habit is routinely leaving me with 30% battery life by 10am **END UPDATE** Someone recommended this app to me a little while back and I have been using it religiously ever since. I love all the speed control features, and can't fathom going back to the glacial pace of normal speed. There are some minor usability issues, but overall it's a really brilliant and reliable app. Something I would LOVE to see, but may be asking too much, is a way to set my podcast to go off at a certain time in the morning. Alarms don't wake me up, but podcasts do! I can't find a single podcast alarm app anywhere, and as this is already my podcasting app of choice, it would be amazing for it to also have this. I would certainly be happy paying for premium for that functionality alone, and there's a clear gap in the market. Keep up the great work!
  • Clips

    The clips feature makes my favorite podcast player even better!
  • I have used this for 3 plus years

    When money is good, I pay the premium, but there is not a significant penalty for not paying the premium. The lack of non-premium penalty makes it more likely for me to pay the premium when I can. This app is awesome. In addition to the apple podcast apps I listen to are a number of rss only podcasts, which integrate seamlessly with the standard podcasts. Awesome chapters and car integration, when my screen shatters I can still listen to podcasts with Siri while I wait for another screen from Amazon.
  • Great App, just needs video!

    By Chris Kerrigan
    Absolutely my favorite podcasting app. The amount of customization options and features are wonderful, especially smart speed. The only thing missing is video, IMO. I have a couple of podcasts from the TWiT network that I enjoy actually watching and would love to be able to do that from within Overcast as opposed to another player or using Safari.
  • Best Podcast player

    By m.m.photo
    I have tried several podcast players and found that this one to be the best for me. It is user friendly and setting up smart playlists is a breeze. Great work on the app.
  • Great Podcast App to replace native iOS Podcast app

    Great Podcast App to replace native iOS Podcast app
  • Overcast has saved me 1000 hours since 2015

    By yatesteve
    I love overcast. It has saved me 1000 hours since 2015 because of the smart speed features. I am a premium member to use file uploads to listen to audiobooks in addition to podcasts. This is the best podcast app. Hands down.
