Overcast: Podcast Player app reviews

  • Top notch design, clever features, well rounded app. 5/5

    By NutellaOnMelbaToast
    I've used stitcher, pocketcasts, doggcatcher, and iTunes for roughly 4 years. My favorite of the bunch by far is Pocketcasts. Out of curiosity, I tried Overcast on my iPad 2, and I am very impressed. The app has all my favorite features from Pocketcasts, with very intuitive implementations of those features. In my experience, Overcast has crashed only a couple of times over the last 4 months, which imo, is outstanding when compared to similar apps. The vast majority of the time Overcast has been stable, robust, intuitive and powerful, even when managing my ridiculous subscription list of 1000+ episodes. Highly recommended.
  • Best podcast player 5/5

    By Rayan Tawfik
    Syncing has never failed me.
  • Made podcasts a pleasure again 5/5

    By Tongzhi
    Lovely relationship with your users, too. Feels honest and collaborative.
  • Only a remote control for the Apple Watch 2/5

    By DaKKini
    This dosnt play through the Apple Watch connected to your headphones. It's certainly not the dev. Fault but rather apple restricting permissions for the dev to access headphones play through Apple Watch. I'm finding the Apple Watch pretty useless at this point as it dosnt play audible books, podcasts. Virtually dosnt do a whole lot. This is a good app overall if you need something like this, but I wanted an app for Apple Watch because Apple won't support podcasts through the Apple Watch. I'll be returning this app. If dev. Ever has access to the play function through the Watch please work on this let us know it's not more than just a wrist attached remote control and I'll repurchase it.
  • Better than Podcasts 5/5

    By EJELIV
    Even the free version of this app out performs iOS standard app.

    By WOLVERINE098986

  • Excellent 5/5

    By wrd222
    Very thoughtfully designed. A significant improvement over the stock iOS podcast app.
  • Great Podcast App 5/5

    By Jakester233433346
    I've been using this app for a few weeks now and it has really grown on me. It has a clean interface and all the features I need. Currently tolerating the ads, might go premium at some point. I don't understand the people complaining about a free piece of software that contains ads....
  • Thanks 5/5

    By etchedprints

    By bradleychambers28
    Needs more GIFs, but that's a Casey problem. Nah, great app.
  • Has some good features 4/5

    By Ishbskfhb
    Gave it only 4 stars because there are some podcasts that I was unable to find and subscribe to compared to the iPhone version.
  • Great Podcast Player! 5/5

    By Fear the Tree
    Love Overcast! Has great features and works well. I love Smart speed and the ability to customize playback. Wish it didn't have ads, but Marco's a great guy and I realize he needs to make money (and really they're not that bad). Overall 👍🏻👍🏻
  • The best podcast app. 5/5

    By ThisIsABadUsername
    This app is a great way to listen to podcasts. I personally listen to about 10 shows and I love the theme (especially dark) and the auto speed feature. It is seem less and works every time. I fully support future versions of this app, and would love to see even more great features.
  • I've tried them all. This is the best. 5/5

    By gradualepiphany
    Clean. Functional. Well designed. Reliable.
  • Best podcast app in the store! 5/5

    By pian0
    I've tried them all and this is the one you want. 262 extra hours of podcasts thanks to SmartSpeed!
  • Very useful app 5/5

    By GES79
    Switched from Downcast which was an app I loved💕 I'm sticking with Overcast
  • Great podcast and audiobook listening tool 5/5

    By theDimka
    Overcast is really awesome for listening and keeping things synced. Lots of useful features.
  • My go to podcast player 5/5

    By brenthershner
    I love this app. It's the best one I've used. I just wish the search functionality was a little better. I can't always find the things I'm looking for and wish we could see a list of most listened to.
  • GREAT sound at higher speeds. HORRIBLE organizing. 3/5

    By DJ Rizzo
    The best podcast app for sound quality when you want to listen at faster speeds. The worst at organizing & customizing how your podcasts are viewed and played. Example: the app appears to separate played and unplayed podcasts; however it only considers a podcast episode "played" if you delete it. Any that you have played but keep remains in the unplayed list. That's just the most glaring of a number of annoyances. I wish I could have Overcast's sound quality merged with Downcast's organization & customization tools.
  • Best Podcast App available 5/5

    By gtmarin
    Easy to use. Complete library. Free. Best app for listening to and managing Podcasts available today.
  • Not even close 5/5

    By SnapyaFangaz
    This isn't just the best podcast app, it's one of the best apps on my phone. I wish more apps were up to this standard.
  • Pretty sweet app 4/5

    By m00se86
    I like it and use it every day.
  • Great, especially smart speed 5/5

    By cpragman
    The Initial setup of the app is a pleasant surprise. It has a way to import your OPML list from whatever other podcast app you are currently using. This worked like a dream, even with a “members only” podcast I subscribe to that has a complex URL. The steps were even customized for the app I was taking the data from. This made switching from a different app so simple.
  • Great App 5/5

    By RRVaughn
    This app blows the iOS Podcast app out of the water.
  • Really Love It 5/5

    By Some user 123
    I've started using this app a couple weeks ago and it's great. I love the smart speed option and it has saved me loads of time. The only thing I want to be added or maybe I just haven't found the feature but I would like to be able to mark episodes as played because I listen to the same shows on my phone and my computer so sometimes I'll get ahead on my computer and there's no way to say I've already listened to these episodes to mark them as played. Otherwise really great app and by far my favorite podcast app.
  • Worth waiting for 5/5

    By thereisnospoon
    I've been patiently waiting ever since Marco teased this on a podcast. Very cool move putting links to a bunch of other popular podcast apps in the settings. Why no love for Apple's podcast app? 😀 Update: Works great on my iPhone 6 Plus! 2nd Update: And now my iPad too!
  • Best podcast app. 5/5

    By eze829
    It's the best. Speed settings make it so much easier to get through all my podcast.
  • Used to be great... 1/5

    By dvnate
    ...but barely works now with watchOS 3.
  • Love the removal of silence 5/5

    By Ck374747474892

  • Such a great app 5/5

    By Nathan218
    I truly cannot rate this app highly enough. If you like podcasts, or even if you haven't yet given podcasts a fair shot, I strongly recommend trying the app out. I am very confident that you will like the app after you see how enjoyable podcast listening can be. Great work Marco! Thanks a lot! One small suggestion: Chromecast support would be a very welcome addition.
  • Great podcast player 5/5

    By indiebands

  • Wow many hours in still great 5/5

    By guy9999
    Updated I have completely switched over to this and so happy with my decision and I became a patron as well I am using this for speed listening over downcast and it's amazing
  • Smart, clean, makes me mad at others apps I use to listen 5/5

    By Marissa_1
    Good design. Intuitive commands up front for new users and nit picky options that enhance the experience as you become more of an repeat podcast listener. Great! Great! Great!
  • Best Podcast App out there! 5/5

    By jrbuen0
    Simple to use yet powerful with all the great features. Love it and use it daily!
  • Top Class 5/5

    By Blazinnot
    Easily the best podcast app I've found.
  • Excellent 5/5

    By BatonWielder
    The best podcatcher. Marco keeps making it better and better while maintaining its simplicity.
  • Simple and easy to use 5/5

    By Walckerrs
    Simple podcast player with minimal ads. Easy to use controls.
  • Making pay again after two years 1/5

    By Dannnnnniel
    I've owned the paid version of this app for at least two years and it has been excellent, I mainly upgraded so I could download over LTE. However, last night I updated and lo and behold they have changed to a subscription service and now my app is riddled with ads and functionality is lost. They want me to pay 9.99 for the things I already paid 4.99 for. Go rot in developer hell with Adobe.
  • Most Reliable Podcast App 4/5

    By CapFan4ever
    I have not used many podcast apps, but that is because I found Overcast. I have used Apple's podcast app and Stitcher. Both left me unhappy and frustrated enough to seek out another app. Then I found Overcast, and have been happy ever since.
  • Best iOS podcast app 5/5

    By slongoria14
    This is the best way to listen to podcasts on your phone or iPad. Sync works great, smart speed and volume boost are perfect. Please make a Mac app!
  • Absolute best podcast player app! 5/5

    By eelinow
    As a rabid fan of podcasts since their introduction so many years ago, I have tried a multitude of players. When Apple came out with their player, I was excited because it integrated so well with the rest of the ecosystem. When overcast was released, I originally shunned it because it wasn't from Apple. I would quickly like to point out that I am a software engineer with over two decades of professional experience, and not just someone who uses whatever is thrown in my direction. With that being said, it was from listening to the Accidental Tech podcast that I decided to give Overcast a chance. Before the current premium annual subscription model was introduced and before Overcast went to voluntary subscription only model, I had already paid for the application, finding it very valuable. I am now glad to say that I once again have given money towards future development and existing support of overcast and while I can't imagine which other options may become available, I'm really happy to be able to financially aid in that direction. It is truly a wonderful application and I use it for hours on end, daily. As a possible future option, would it be viable to allow for some sort of external topic based aggregator sites to be used for finding new content? Looking for conservative specific content would be much easier if there were some form of ability to read from said aggregator sites. Just a thought…
  • Best podcast app out there 5/5

    By mudpuppy01
    The free voice boost and smart speed features are so amazing, I felt compelled to become a premium subscriber for $10/year. Thank you for making an amazing app!
  • Best Podcast App 5/5

    Amazing
  • My go to player! 5/5

    By CraignKzoo
    This is a great app for podcasts! Simple and clean.
  • A Snap to Use 5/5

    By dlp454
    My son told me about this app and since rarely steers me wrong I gave it a try. Love it and found it easy to learn and use.
  • A gem 5/5

    By Northstar76
    It simply does what I need. Very straight forward and user friendly.
  • Podcast game changer 5/5

    By pendolino
    I was a typical default apple Podcasts app user and quite happy with it while yearning for a few extra features. Here's what totally impresses me with Overcast and will keep me loyal for a long time to come: - the developer is a thoughtful and respected inventor of instapaper (that he eventually sold) amongst others - the speed options are extremely useful especially the innovative smart speed feature that compresses silences - can share a podcast easily at an specific time or the whole episode with a simple link for either - settings are app wide or per podcast - you can access your subscriptions on the web including history and pick up where you left off. Totally impressive yet simple - many more little thoughtful features There really is no reason to poke around for anything else once you've tried this. I came here trying to find a way to donate more since I've already donated/paid within the app and got premium access. Do note BTW that the free app is in no way limited but I do like to support quality products as much as possible
  • Is it the best podcast app? Maybe. Is it amazing? Yes! 5/5

    By Jeff.Bernard
    Buy the app and listen to podcasts. It works great and is a pleasure to use. The "smart" sound features make playback sound better and get through podcasts faster.
