  • What happened to this great app?

    I have loved this app for years, but now it is not operating like it should. When it is going through the checking process for new podcasts it's impossible to do anything else with the app, like scroll through the apps or adjust settings. Just no
  • Great app!

    I use this app every day that I travel and rarely have to go in and change settings - which is nice. It just works for me and works REALLY well for making playlists out of episodes.
  • Tried others, came back after extensive testing.

    Mostly tried Overcast, but the user interface and organization is terrible. Add to that a subscription to remove adds? No thanks. Paid for Downcast once, years ago, and the developer is still updating it. Feature rich, and easy to use. I do agree with others though, about the small text, but its a minor inconvenience at best. And the sound quality is just fine. I see mo difference between Downcast and others, except the fast playback options, which I don’t care for anyway.
  • Love it but....alarms.

    My only gripe is that it somehow defeats the alarms I have set up in the iOS. If I’m listening to a podcast and an alarm goes off no sound is heard from the alarm and the podcast goes silent. Therefore I can’t fall asleep listening to podcasts on downcast for fear I will sleep through my alarm.
  • One star until they fix crashes

    Love the app, used it for years without problems. Latest version crashes repeatedly.
  • Crashes all the time now

    I've been using this app for years, and I would be happy to kick in some extra money if the developer might ensure that it doesn't crash all the time. As in every two or three minutes. I spend as much time waiting for it to reload as I do actually listening. I like a lot about this app, but the greatest features in the world mean nothing if an app won't actually run.
  • Need Siri feature

    Really needing Siri control from lock screen. Well really just want to start playing podcasts after I get in the car and start moving. Overcast can do it.. Please update.
  • Love it

    This app has so many features that most apps don’t have. It gives you a lot of control over how the app works based on what you want the app to be. Also it doesn’t require a subscription so once you buy it you own all the features, although there is an option for tips in the setting to show your support!!
  • Podbean Feeds

    Missing a star because of issues with Podbean feeds. For some reason they swap information and quit working. Have to delete the affected podcasts and resubscribe to make them work again. All other feeds work fine.
