  • Better than the Apple Podcast app.

    It has more features (like a voice-boosting option, a “Smart Speed” setting that I particularly like for specific podcasters I listen to who talk so. laboriously. slow.), more customization controls. You can have more than one playlist and listening to something not on the playlist doesn’t screw up the playlists you have. It’s easy and simple to look at the descriptions for the episodes. The only thing that the Apple Podcast app does that I wish Overcast did as well is have a “Previously Played” listing. But given how much this app does for you, I’ll take this over Apple any day.
  • Amazing app

    Such an amazing app, regret that I haven’t know about it before. Check “the knowledge project” with Shane Parrish. This is how I’ve experienced this app at first.

    I got this for listening to podcasts on my Apple Watch while out walking. I did manage once or twice to download a couple of episodes to the watch by pressing lots of buttons and waiting an hour or two. But most of the time nothing happens. There’s no feedback, no instructions. Not intuitive. Extremely frustrating.

    Easy to use, straightforward design, does what the apple podcast app does, but much better. The amount of customization within the app makes podcast listening more efficient and enjoyable. The Apple podcast app isn’t bad but once you try overcast you will never go back!
  • Switched from Apple podcasts

    Loving overcast so far. Asked for some features for Apple podcasts on Twitter and was surprised they exist on overcast.

    Marco is the a great member of the iOS community, and he’s customer-obsessed. Great free app; I’m happy to be a premium member.
  • First Ethical Advertisement App I’ve owned

    This outshines Apple podcasts by a far far stretch. The ability to customize the order of podcast episodes, the dark theme, the easy on the eyes banner ads, the voice boost and speed adjustment settings, and Siri compatibility are just some of the things you can do that you couldn’t do on Apple Podcasts. Overcast Premium costs are minimal, so long as you have decent financial and job security, $10 a year is nothing for the perks. I personally haven’t tried premium, however overcast doesn’t make premium feel like an essential upgrade so much as a small boost of perks in exchange for overcast services. Give this app a try, it’s maintained frequently, has a healthy support system, and minimal on ads.
  • The best podcast app

    I used to use Apple Podcast and Stitcher. This destroys them. Great, simple UI. No intrusive ads or pleas for ratings. So good!
