Overcast app reviews

  • Leading The Way 4/5

    By NoobianGod
    Nearly perfect. I need my Watch volume control back and then we’re golden. Seriously though, if you are still using Apples default podcast app THIS is the better way! Give my digital crown volume control in the WatchOS 4 version of the app and you got a 5 star rating from me. 4 for now.
  • Good 4/5

    By Bigkevheck
    Not super-customizable, but good basic podcatcher.
  • Good app 5/5

    By Jables of the Third Order
  • A nice podcast app 5/5

    By estoughton
    Nailed the Apple Watch version. Although I wish that the ability to listen without your iPhone nearby was still there. This is a very nice podcast app from a great developer.
  • The best free podcast app!!! 5/5

    By ezalb024
    Overcast is the best free podcast app, in my opinion. I've used the Apple Podcast app for many years and Overcast is so much better. It has many more useful options and it's so easy to use. If you're looking for a new podcast player or you're just starting out, I strongly suggest using Overcast. I'm so glad I switched!!!
  • Simple, straight-forward 4/5

    By michieness
    Been using Overcast for several months now, I like the interface and simplicity. The recommendations page is a bit lacking, but the app is great for listening to what you already subscribe to. It'd be nice to have a Sonos version, but it's probably too niche of a market.
  • This feels like a place 5/5

    By FondaCS
    Weird but it feels like my virtual place to learn. It is solid, friendly and intuitive. I recommend Overcast all the time! Updated 9/19/17: I updated to premium today because this app has saved me so much time AND it is intuitive. I believe in contributing to companies that help enhance my life. Thank you OVERCAST!
  • Nice, but with a glaring hole 3/5

    By That Westside Guy
    Overcast looks to have some very nice features. But, surprisingly, it doesn't support video podcasts. You can subscribe to them and downloads ad them... but the app will only let you listen to their audio track. Given the plethora of video podcasts nowadays, this makes Overcast a non-starter for me.
  • I like it, but.... 4/5

    By Tonythedad
    Latest updates have made the Interface less intuitive and more complex. Too many screens to navigate. This app gets stranger and stranger. The screen to add new podcasts has vanished. I'm sure it will come back if I reboot my phone but strange. One feature that would make it less annoying - why doesn't it logically play the next podcast in order?? 2 to 3, 3 to 4, nope it goes 2 to 168, 3 to 168. It'll always jump to the latest. Stupid.
  • Really impressive 5/5

    By AjaxEroticA
    Great podcast app!
  • Best podcast app I’ve tried 5/5

    By Madvoid
    This app performs well, has a good UI, and a lot of great features. I’d highly recommend it over the iOS default app!
  • Love it 5/5

    By eKyle
    Works great. Deleted the iOS Podcasts app after I had used this for awhile. Much better.
  • Favorite podcast app 5/5

    By Lynn YG
    Especially the fine speed slider, smart silences
  • Best. 5/5

    By aPully
    Easy to use. Easy to change. Easy to group. I pay for this app voluntarily.
  • Unable to Manually Download Episodes? 1/5

    By Lilia Banrevy
    I've used and loved Overcast for a little over 6 months now, but recently was unable to find the option to manually download older episodes. All I can find is a weird list of episodes that I can download under the "Downloads" tab (just a weird collection of old episodes from a bunch of different shows, and of course none of the ones I want to listen to are there). I used to do this all the time while I was working on my car, and feel like I must be going crazy! I'm really bummed to have to start over with a new app, but I couldn't find any information on this even on the developer's website.
  • The interface is completely terrible 2/5

    By JellyBeano
    I really regret ever switching to Overcast. Today I begin looking for a replacement. After two years, the interface still makes absolutely no sense to me.
  • Current version crashes 3/5

    By SUMOsonix
    I love the app when it works. It has great features and is significantly better than the stock iOS Podcast app. However, I cannot get the current version of Overcast to work with my iPad running iOS 10.3.3. It seems that the iOS update is what caused it to stop working. App crashes every time I attempt to open it. :(
  • Best Podcast App 5/5

    By samuelknecht
    This is far and away the best podcast app. Play around with Smart Speed and Voice Boost within the app and overdrive your podcasting experience.
  • Great except for one thing. 5/5

    By mrmccrary
    This podcast player I'd definitely the best of the any that I have tried. My one complaint, however is the sleep timer. The two functionalities that I would like are: an ability to pause the timer, and an ability to set the timer to end when the podcast does.
  • Love it... 1 tiny tweak 3/5

    By JDubbsIII
    9/12/17- Still my podcast player of choice. 75 hrs of life saved with smart speed. I was happy to see the Twitter login requirement removed to star episodes, but my gripe is still with starring options. Lowered rating as tweak request from 10/12/16 has not happened. Additional tweak request: I want to be able to star an episode and leave it downloaded without the podcast staying in the main section of podcasts with unplayed episodes. Currently, if I save an episode of a podcast I have no way to know if a new episode has been added without opening it's feed. 10/12/16- Great app. 36 hours of life saved so far by smart speed function. Happy premium subscriber. Would love to see one little tweak: Played episodes > Delete when finished *unless starred* Thanks!
  • Nice app! 5/5

    By Amba75
    This is a great app. It's been really easy to use and navigate. No more finger frustration trying to navigate back to old podcasts or new ones. Double thumbs up!
  • Better than expected 5/5

    By Jferina
    I downloaded this app so I could download podcasts on my Apple Watch and listen to them without my phone (for running, etc.). I was disappointed to learn that they removed that feature, but less so when I realized it was Apple's fault (I'd like to think it was part of some sneaky plan so Apple can eventually roll out the same feature, but probably not). Anyway, I was going to delete the app because I wasn't really having any problems with Apple's podcasts app. But then I decided I should at least give Overcast a try...now I'm a convert! I love how much easier it is to operate, and I've never once had it tell me a podcast was temporarily unavailable (a common occurrence on Apple's app). Give it a try!
  • So Much Better than the Apple App 5/5

    By DunderDad
    Not much to say, other than this app is so much better than the native Podcasts app. It's intuitive, easy to use, and doesn't require a thousand steps just to listen to my shows in the order I want to listen to them in.
  • Great app, only thing lacking is the web version 4/5

    By bmwright1
    Overcast is fantastic and the Apple Watch support is a nice touch. The web app is trash and makes me think about switching back to Pocket Casts every time I use it though
  • Working as intended 5/5

    By Drenpot
    Even at higher playback speed it just works.
  • Awesome app 5/5

    By Gartano 1749272)-&;$
    I can finally listen to my podcasts faster than 2x!!
  • Best 5/5

    By KTspacebee
    This app is the best for podcasts. And I listen to a LOT of podcasts.
  • "waiting to Download" 1/5

    By TrekkieTravis
    UPDATE: Tried again today. Bug still exists. The vendor has apparently stopped development on this app. Despite all permissions being on, all podcasts just say "Waiting to download". Waste of $10...
  • Great app! 5/5

    By StevoTheMevo
    Simply the best podcasting app anywhere.
  • best podcast app 5/5

    By CB4817237
    I have been using this app for a while and it's the best i have found by far. the only feature i wish it had was a "recently downloaded" list or something of the sort. either way, i will continue to use. Thank you!
  • I like it 5/5

    By Claude Tippey Jr.
    I like it. The app I like

    Hands down
  • Best free podcast app on the market 5/5

    By OliverW95
    So much better than the Apple podcast app.
  • Got it on Day 1 and it is still excellent 5/5

    By Jaggity Joe
    Thanks for the great podcasting app.
  • Delightful 5/5

    By krevbot
    This is truly a wonderful podcast app. My only complaint is that it's not the native app for iPhone.
  • Good 5/5

    By Siksi
    very good
  • Best Podcast Player 5/5

    By Werthy Adventures
    Nothing better
  • Love it 5/5

    By HHS
    I'm new to overcast (from downcast) and I love it. It's intuitive, and the interface is exactly how I want to interface with my podcasts (if that makes sense).
  • The best 5/5

    By Paige4o4
    Even gnoring headline features like Smart Speed, it's still the best podcast app on iOS.
  • Clearly the best 5/5

    By DWC69
    I've downloaded a number of different podcast apps. This is easily the best one. Easily. The only feature it doesn't have, that I wish it had, was that I can control how often he checks to download Podcasts. I would like it to check and download every 15 minutes when I am using it. But I can't find a setting to do that. That's how good this is. My biggest complaint is pretty nitpicky.
  • Looks Great, Works Great 5/5

    By Breadcrumbs151
    No complaints at all.
  • Crashes a lot 3/5

    By Me1689
    Been using this app daily since day one. The app crashes regularly. The app display will often extend out of the viewing screen. Things like the back arrow or the episode play button won't show up on screen. The smart speed is amazing. Also being able to download individual MP3 files via URL is a great feature.
  • Can't search for podcasts :( 1/5

    By EnglishVegan
    Downloaded this tonight and within 2 minutes I got a 'Service Error' message when trying to search for podcast. It said 'Sorry Overcasts sync server returned an error.' So now I am unable to add any podcasts I listen to to the app, making the app pretty much unusable.
  • Much better than Apple Podcasts 5/5

    By piesandfalcs
    Also, I love how the downloads and dark theme work.
  • Better than stitcher 5/5

    By Eatthepuck
    This has better playback features and is much cleaner than stitcher. I am happy with the switch.
  • My favorite podcast app 5/5

    By andyhuey
    I've been using Overcast for awhile now. Never had any problems. Easy to use. Great app.
