  • Great podcast app!!!

    By combst
    Overall great functionality and great access to my favorite podcasts. Only issues that I’ve had are with notifications coming through when new episodes are available. I won’t find out until I click into the app sometimes. Other than that I’ve really enjoyed Overcast!!
  • Disappointed

    I like your podcast in general but when you start taking away peoples right to share a podcast just because you don’t like the person for political reasons I lose respect for you
  • This app censors your feeds

    By Pixelnate
    I deleted this app because the developer has decided to block sites he doesn’t like. While I don’t listen to Alex Jones, I vehemently reject restrictions on free speech, and the act taken by this developer is akin censorship. I didn’t pay for this app to be told by him what I can and can’t listen to. If you believe in free speech you should also delete this app. There is no telling which sites he’ll be blocking next!
  • Easy to use

    By Makieus
    Apple podcast is very lacking. This app has made it easy to select and continually update the various podcasts I listen to
  • The best

    By mmmyyyymtjffsh
    So much better Than the standard app
  • Still a buggy mess

    By tom5304
    What is wrong with this app?! Completely amateurish. The app still freezes, it still chokes when it tries to sync, it still gets stuck on downloads. And I’m still out $10 for a subscription to an app that doesn’t work. Pocket Casts runs fine, Castro runs fine, but Overcast can’t go ten minutes without a glitch or a freeze or a crash. That’s life. Thanks for understanding.
  • Random stopping

    By ranamae
    It used to be perfect but the last couple of months I’ve had issues with podcasts randomly stopping even if downloaded (not streaming). Sometimes the time counter will continue with no audio, sometimes not. I usually have to close and reopen the app several times to get it to kick back on. Half the time I give up. Please fix, I loved this app!
  • Playback Glitches

    By daniellee2
    At various times podcasts will not play. You have to delete podcast from your tray and re subscribe to get to play. ANNOYING AF.
  • Best Podcast app

    By racerbob123
    Great interface and advanced features like voice boost and smart speed (cuts out unnecessary silence) makes this the best podcasting app out there.
  • Garbage

    By Kqcallahan
    Downloaded all of my programs only to have the app quit every time I tried to play one. Useless
