Overcast App Reviews

  • Finally Organized!

    By BoozyAlpaca
    For the past too many years, I’ve been using whatever the native setup for podcasts was on my iPhone (most recently, the Podcasts app). I didn’t hate it but there were always things that I definitely didn’t like. My biggest frustration with Apple’s native app was the lack of personalization and organization. I’m not a consistent podcast listener. Instead, when I want something to listen to that isn’t music, I download a bunch of episodes that sound interesting and listen to them while traveling or cleaning or whatever otherwise monotonous or boring thing I’m doing. I love Overcast because it allows a much greater degree of customization, and now I have the podcasts that I am a fan of separated into appropriately labeled playlists (my politics ones in a politics folder, my news ones in a news folder, etc). The amount of peace this gives me is great, and it’s easy to create a new playlist called something like “July Road Trip” and then pick out the topics I feel like listening to from their respective playlists (ie politics, economics, news, or comedy), and download some episodes that sound good. I’ve tried a couple other podcast apps over the past two months or so, and I think Overcast is the one I want to commit to. I’d say we’re engaged and in the lead-up to the wedding but if somehow something much better comes along... I’ll have to bail before the wedding. But given my experience using it so far, I think that’s very, very unlikely.

    Great app!
  • Still freezing and crashing

    By tom5304
    Overcast keeps freezing and crashing on my iPhone SE. The developer won’t respond to repeated emails, so I’m out $10. Who sells a service for $10 and then doesn’t provide the actual service..? A crook, as far as I can tell. That’s life. Thanks for understanding.
  • The best podcast app

    By Jeff from Milton
    With the smart speed up, low overhead, reliable performance and pleasant ux this is the app to get. Well designed and unobtrusive ads too. I've tried a handful of podcast apps and this is the best!
  • Good no frills podcast app

    By Gamrix
    Clean, simple and beautiful, it does what it says it’ll do. There are minimal ads, which is also a plus.
