Overcast App Reviews

  • Love this app but...

    By Pksrock777
    I love this app and have used it for years. I love how it organizing my podcasts, I can stream the podcasts with out having to download them, and the smart speed thing is awesome. They also have a dark mode which is great... It breaks my heart that I can’t use this app anymore. I live in China and just recently the app stopped being able to find and download the podcasts without a VPN...
  • Best podcast app - first-rate user experience

    Elegant in it simplicity and yet fully featured, Overcast is the best podcast app I found, and among the best apps overall in terms of functionality and ease of use. It solves the frustrations of other apps and adds other features and conveniences I didn’t even know I wanted, such as Smart Speed and Voice Boost. Apps like Apple Podcasts and Spotify have annoying limitations and clunky non-intuitive interfaces. Overcast is just a pleasure to use it and as a bonus it’s default color is orange! Some of my favorite features are the multiple play back speed choices, easy links to the podcast website, quick downloading, good organization, and handy location of buttons. It also works well off-line, without snarky notifications like “Hmm no Internet”. It’s refreshing to use an app developed by somebody who really gave some thought to the user experience.
  • Great app, amazing developer!

    I’ve been a fan of the creator’s podcast, ATP.fm for years and I really respect him and find his story inspiring. Marco is the genius behind Tumblr and Instapaper, so you know his stuff is good! Overcast is no exception. The attention to detail is impeccable and the new interface is simple and charming. I love the offline watchOS playback. One tiny request: LISTENING STATS FOR THE LOVE OF GOD!
  • I love this app.

    By Gingerlizard
    I got overcast because apple’s podcasting app got ridiculous and unusable. I love this app, i can make different playlists, move pods around, the smart skip is amazing, and the speeds are actually useful.

  • Great

    By lehood
    Just wish it would automatically download podcasts ( might but I may just have it set up wrong ) it seams I have to daily click on the download button.
  • The space...

    By All for Leyna
    This podcast app is seriously great. I love the feature that lets you change the viewing of the podcast playlist from oldest to newest in case I feel like starting at the beginning of a cool podcast. The reason it’s only four stars tho is that even tho I never download any of the podcasts, I still have to delete and then redownload the app Bc it takes up soooo much space.
  • Great podcast player

    By TheKingFan6
    Way better than the default apple app for iOS
  • Why did I wait so long to switch??!

    By MontanaGal78
    This is a long-ish review, but I wanted to be thorough.... I recently downloaded Overcast at the urging of a friend who was sick of listening me complain about how crazy the Apple podcast app was making me. I’ll never go back!! Every time I used Apple’s Podcast app my phone would freeze upon activation (sometimes for minutes at a time), if I went to take a picture while listening to a podcast it would immediately stop playing, close the app, and then not have the program queued up when my phone finally unfroze and I was able to get back into podcasts. Scrolling was nightmarish as well as it initiated freezing and was always “jumpy”. (All of these issues started happening with iOS 11 and have only gotten worse with the iOS 12 updates. Issues have been consistent on my 8 Plus and my new xR). Overcast has *never* caused my phone to freeze, scrolling is fluid, and the app is unaffected by simultaneous use of the camera. The interface is easy to navigate and there are so many elements (visual/playback/organization) you can adjust under an aptly named “Nitpicky Details” to tailor your listening/viewing experience. Creating playlists is easy, and every single show I subscribed to on Apple podcasts is available on Overcast. Another thing I love about Overcast is that it works seamlessly with my Sonos AirPlay system (I am told most other podcast apps lack this feature). I’m currently using the free version and have never found the ads to be invasive or obtrusive. They’re there, but don’t compete for visual space and don’t cause a decrease in performance. I plan to upgrade to the premium $9.99/year version once I’m a bit more familiar with the app since .83 cents/month is a nominal price to pay for a superior ad-free product. Well done guys! 🌟⭐️🌟 HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! 🌟⭐️🌟
