Overcast App Reviews

  • Navigation is poorly thought out

    By Nickname? Fine. Ishmael.
    I really don't get the UX decisions made by the developer, the app is unintuitive and unpleasant to use. I want to like this app because I enjoy his ATP podcast, but its just no good.
  • No better podcast player- Period.

    By Xboxecho
    Constant user enhancements, innovative extras that other podcasts have not even thought of; simply the best podcast player out there.
  • Still crashing

    By clipclopcomplainalot
    The last update didn’t fix a thing.
  • No iOS 11?

    By Lenzo1
    I’m pretty frustrated that you dropped support for such a recent version of iOS so quickly, as I’m currently stuck on iOS 11. I’ll have to be switching to a different podcast app, which I didn’t want to do because I’ve liked using overcast.
  • New Episode Download

    By DakotaMilkshakes
    THE podcast player. Since the move to iOS 12 (I think) the player does not auto download new episodes unless I open the app though. Not sure what’s happened.
  • Finally Updated, Very Pleased

    TLDR: fine controls over playback, detailed Smart Playlists, and incredible Siri-Shortcut support. I was reluctant to change because the native app was “good enough” but this one is so much nicer. I’ve simply used the native iOS Podcast app for years. Even after the iOS 11 redesign (which was a step backwards to me), I continued to use it as it was good enough and got the job down for me. So many podcasters raved about this app so I’ve given it a chance. I wasn’t sure at first, but now I’m hooked. I love the black theme on an iPhone X🅂 and the use of Smart Playlists turned out to be a huge benefit. Also, the developer has deeply integrated Siri-Shortcuts. I have assigned shortcuts for smart speed, for certain playlists, and to resume playback. For my uses, it’s effectively like having Siri control for 3rd party media with the benefit that it never misunderstands me because they’re my custom phrases. I was reluctant to change, but now I’m very pleased.
  • Simply the best podcast app

    By RisingPhoenix7
    The attention to detail and will considered power user features make this the best app for just about everyone. It’s been my fav for years now. It benevolently leads and other follow.
  • Love this app!

  • Best of the best

    1. Best sound even at high speed 2. Fast download 3. Priority podcasts are always placed in the right location 4. Hand off and continuity is seamless between my iPhone and iPad. Seamless, accurate and fast 5. Themes and light switch changing is great 6. Loads fast, downloads podcasts fast and very smooth operation 7. I can change the sort order of any list. It starts as old or new first but then I can move things around 8. I can pick any playlist and just play everything in it without moving it to a playing now. Just tap and go 9. I can tap and choose options including play or I can just tap and play. Awesome options 10. Great playlist control, including, excluding and making priority podcasts. I have tried them all and this is the winner. I come back to this every time. Thanks
  • Only the Best!

    All podcast players will give access to basically the same set of content. What sets Overcast apart is it's configurations, and watch functionality. If you are a heavy podcast listener, and maybe a but of a type A personality, then this is the app for you!!
