  • It’s been working well

    By a101hlg
    Better than the podcast app by Apple I was using
  • App always gets stuck

    By Bachus23
    Bought pro version year ago and it worked great initially. Lately it is always getting stuck. Cannot play can not go back to library just stuck. Force closing does not fix it. Uninstalled and reinstalled. Worked for a few episodes then got stuck again.
  • Force closes every time I try to use it.

    It’s don’t what happened but this app is now unusable. The app won’t open at all. I have the latest version of the app and just updated to the latest iOS to see if that would fix the problem and it hasn’t.
  • The only podcast app I use. Excellent features. Never found a bug. Reliable, robust, and enjoyable.

    Ever since I began using Overcast, I’ve never turned back.
  • The best podcast app ever, BUT...

    By CW02
    I rarely review apps, but I’m writing this one hoping it catches the eye of the developer(s). Overcast is absolutely the BEST podcast app available. I’ve tried tons, and none can compare. The design, usability, and options for customizing how you listen are just perfect. And the speed options actually WORK and don’t distort the audio quality! It’s crazy! That said, there is one serious problem with the latest update rendering it unusable. The skipping. At random intervals it will just skip ahead an unknown amount causing podcasts to be unfollowable. I’ve had to move over to inferior apps because of this. I don’t want to. I want to come back. Overcast team, I beg you. I know you are busy but please, please make sure a fix for this is in your next update. I love you.
  • Great but bug fix made worse.

    By Kevin Selle
    Pervious version showed CarPlay stop after start bug. Only fix was to reboot phone. New version does not play at all now. iPhone 6 with latest software.
  • 1gig of data? To listen to one show?

    By feellikeTron
    Not everyone has unlimited data. Even with WiFi checked as choice over cellular this app ate into too much of my plan. Why can’t they keep to a reasonable size file? It would make sense if it was video but audio shouldn’t be that big.
  • Utterly incompatible with latest iOS update

    By mike pence's shame
    I used to love this app, but I’m just about done. It now freezes upon opening, force quits and basically doesn’t work after the latest iOS update. And it got rid of the reverse chronological order, so if you are starting a new podcast, you can to scroll all the way to the bottom to listen to episodes in order. These should be easy fixes, but have yet to be made.
  • Niceeeeeeeee

    Love the app and can’t wait for more updates
  • Best podcast app period.

    By jpiszcz1
    With skip intro and outro support, voice boost 2. This is simply the best podcast app in the iOS ecosystem at this time.
