  • Best podcast app for iPhone

    I struggle through the apple podcast app for several months after switching from an android and I couldn’t stand it any longer. I tried several apps but Overcast is by far the best one. It has so many customizable settings to make your experience exactly how you’d want it. It made life so much more enjoyable!
  • Great & functional, but why no Sonos integration?

    I was an Overcast user for a long time, but switched to Pocketcasts a while ago for one feature only: Sonos integration. But now the updated version of Pocketcasts is a disaster, so I’m back on Overcast. But I still have my big quibble. I can’t use it with my Sonos system. I guess there are some workarounds if you’re a tech guy. I’m not. Spotify has native integration. Pocketcasts is at least a service in the mediocre Sonos app. Overcast is way better than Pocketcasts. Can you get something going here Marco? Please?
  • Great if slightly confusing

    Maybe I'm dense, but there are a few things about Overcast's organization that are really confusing to me: - When I go to a podcast the "Unplayed" tab is highlighted, but podcasts labeled "played" still appear in the list. By contrast the "All" tab appears to include podcasts that go further back in the archive. - There appears to be no way to mark an episode as "played" if I don't want to finish it, I can only "delete" it, which causes it to disappear from "unplayed." (But to still appear in "All", as not having been played.) - When I started using Overcast, it automatically gave me a playlist called "All Episodes". It didn't include everything in the "All" tab of the podcasts, but instead everything in the "Unplayed" tab, including the "played" episodes there. This is not a very useful playlist to have, I think. - Recently, I deleted this playlist, and a new playlist called "Queue" mysteriously appeared in its place. (Actually, I think first the "All Podcasts" playlist might have reappeared but with no episodes in the playlist, and then I deleted it again? Not sure.) That was surprising; although if the queue is actually visible, it will be very helpful (previously I was using "play next" to decide what to listen to next, but I couldn't find anywhere to see what was playing next, so I kept forgetting that I already had something else queued up and ended up with a ton of half-listened podcasts). Anyway, despite the fact that I have no intuitive understanding of Overcast's internal model, it's a nice app and seems to work better than Apple Podcasts, so I generally like it.
  • Great alternative to Apple podcast.

    I can’t remember why I started using Overcast. But I have found it to be a terrific app. No glitches to speak of. Good oh!

    Sorry to say, Apple, but Overcast simply does it better, customizability, small details, they just polish an aspect that feels rather neglected right out of the box by Apple.
  • Pretty good
