    I had to switch from Apples podcast as they kept making improvements that kept degrading the basic function of getting and listening to a podcast. This is an excellent system w all the necessary tools and tricks wo imposing itself at every step.
  • Overall better than native

    I hated when Apple removed continuous play from the default podcasts app. This feature and the ability to send podcast episodes straight to a playlist automatically is great. I get the sense that the native app still gets episodes sooner but I could be totally wrong on that. The only thing I miss from Apple Podcasts is the volume slider being right there in now playing. I will say that Apple podcasts looks better than Overcast, but Overcast functions much better and is by far easier and more convenient to use.

    I’ve set them many times. They’re gone from my app. I hate to ask a question in terms of feedback but your support link brings me to the app with no option to contact support. This is poor design. As for the missing controls????
  • Great App!

    I have used several podcast apps in addition to the stock Apple one, and what sets Overcast apart from the others are the beautiful and intuitive interface as well as the smart speed feature. Smart speed works to speed up podcasts without voice distortion by eliminating pauses between words. It is a total game changer and works great. The dev constantly works to update and improve the app, so you know it is not a one time cash grab. Highly recommend paying the premium for no ads, as it is well worth it!
  • Love the app

    Love using this app. Showing the podcasts that the people you’re following are listening to is a nice addition. One more nice to have thing would be to get an Open in app link when I click on an overcast web link. Thanks
  • Great app and always improving!

    I’ve been using Overcast since the first version and I have always preferred it over any others I tried. The developer is always looking for ways to improve his app and keeps it fresh.
  • Was fantastic...till it started deleting podcasts before I heard them.

    Great app, till a recent update made it start deleting podcasts from my device if they’re deleted from the podcast feed. Until that behavior is changed, this app is sadly useless to me as I listen to a few podcasts that only put one ep up at a time, and delete the previous day’s when the new one posts. Guess it’s back to Apple’s own lackluster Podcasts app, since it doesn’t exhibit this behavior. Contacted dev on email and twitter regarding this, but radio silence so far. Once this gets fixed, five stars. Till then, two. Update: Still no mention of a fix for this issue or even acknowledgement of the issue from the dev. No response on twitter or email. Guess Marco doesn’t want donations.
