  • Great app but need work

    By c_theprofessor
    Love the app but wish there was an easier, better navigation system. Very difficult to find the best podcasts trending right now and why can’t I change the order of my podcasts? I love the playback screen and reliability but If these issues were fixed, this would easily be 5 stars.
  • Great app to replace iOS app

    By NMcBurnett
    I have been so happy since I switched from the iOS podcast app. I tried about 5 over a week period and overcast is by far the best. I can listen to episodes on my computer where I left off. The smart speed and voice boost features are great.
  • So much better than Apple Podcasts!

    Great app. So much easier to organize than Apple. Love it!
  • Best podcast app ever

    By JV9876
    This is hands down the best podcast app I’ve ever used. It comes up with features I never thought of but now can’t live without like “skip long pauses” for podcasts with lots of dead space. Highly recommend if you like listening to podcasts at all.
  • Missing a little of costumization

    By NEXTuga
    Even if way ahead of most of the apps in the AppStore (costumization wise), will be nice to have some changes in the widget department.
  • Paid version is worth it.

    By love the options
    Thank you for adding password protected podcasts, please keep up the good work on improvement! Better than pocket casts, it can do paid subscription podcasts and is only one to fully work on Apple Watch (including apples own podcast app)!
  • Excellent

    By AstridT1
    I really like this app and gladly pay for the premium version. I wish it had a tab for all downloaded casts, or a way to automatically add downloads to a saved playlist. I stream at home and download for the car, so it would be a lot safer if there was a quick way to access downloads from among my many many subscriptions.
  • Awesome app

    By outonthewater
    I switched from Apples podcast app to Overcast and have never looked back. Easy to use. I have never had a glitch (I was having them constantly on Apples podcast app). Love, love, love this app!
  • Easy to Use Podcast App

    By queensimone1908
    After several frustrations with another podcast app, I decided to give Overcast a try. I love it! It’s easy to use, podcasts are easily searchable, & show notes are easy to read.
  • Best podcast option

    By Tblem
    There is simply no better podcast app available. Easy navigation. The best features for playback with voice boost and smart speed.
