  • The best for Offline Apple Watch

    By Wolfcatjc
    auto download to the watch never works. Even manual downloads to the watch fail more than they work. Worse with iOS 13. Reported this to the developer and got no response. :-(
  • Only platform I use

    By XRDB3X
    I use this platform exclusively for podcasts. I like the interface and operation better thAn anything else I’ve used previously.
  • Best app for pods!

    By chele_sews
    I listen to 30+ podcasts of multiple types, so being able to set specific speeds depending on whether it’s storytelling, news, or conversation. The ads in the free version are unobtrusive, and often lead me to yet another podcast that I enjoy.
  • Good app. Watch support spotty

    By Is this my nickname?
    Excellent podcast app. My only issue is that watch integration seems quite intermittent and variable. At the moment it has completely disappeared from my watch, but at times it has been integrated enough to give me volume and skip controls in the exercise app.
  • Needs documentation

    By IdahoBruce
    I generally LOVE Overcast. Would be much better with adequate documentation. Example - how to set playback speed, how do smart playlists work The new version is a nightmare. How to assign podcasts to playlists??
  • Bring back Apple Watch app

    By Chariotsofliar
    I used this every day when walking dogs. I could listen on my AirPods and leave my phone at home. . Easy to download episodes to my watch. I wont use this if the Watch App is gone.
  • Amazing player

    By karmakiddan

    By mkultraball
    All the features you want, free version has minimal ads, simply the best.
  • Need reshuffle in smart list.

    By fuermosi777
    Tired of listening to backlogged for the same channel forever.
  • If you listen to podcasts...

    By mr.Mau
    ...You have to get this app. Period. The control you get over your podcast playing is so detailed and great, that I don’t think any other app comes close. The UI has ridiculously awesome attention to detail. Everything makes sense. The price for Premium is so reasonable and pays itself off within an hour of listening. Seriously. Give it a try. You’re missing out if you’re not using it.
