  • Best in class

    By mrgrumpypants
    Handles podcasts just fine, similar to other apps, but voice boost function is fantastic. My podcasts have never sounded so good. No more having to listen to interviews where one person is ten times louder than the other.
  • Great app

    I swapped over about a year ago and never looked back.
  • Really clean and easy podcast app

    I switched from stitcher and Overcast is great. Works more seamlessly than Stitcher with CarPlay and lots of great features.
  • Podcast Organization at its best

    Love this App. Finally a way to organize Podcasts into manageable lists! Customize List Names. Plus it has a cool App name.

    I can't think of any way to improve Overcast.
  • Confusing app design

    By digitalbagel
    Why can’t I elect to download episodes? Why is that option hidden? Why is all of the page navigation at the top, unlike most iOS apps?
  • Great for commuters

    By Rose's walker
    Love the fact that it will play episodes back to back without me needing to touch my iPhone
  • Missing Something

    By LCTNT
    I hate how old podcast episodes jump to the newest episode after it’s done playing. Spotify Podcast doesn’t do this and I’m upset I paid for the Overcast premium. Only reason why I still have this is because of the UI and dedication to Podcasting.
