  • Amazing App

    I love this app! I bought the Apple Watch specifically so I could run and listen to podcasts without my phone. I was heartbroken when I came to find despite all my best efforts, I could not get podcasts from the Apple Podcast app to sync to my watch. Thankfully I found Overcast in a Google search to troubleshoot the problem! Now my broken heart is healed and I’m running phone free while listening to podcasts! The developer deserves a pat on the back for creating such a seamless syncing experience. I also love the option to download just an episode of a podcast instead of subscribing. I do wish there was an option to not download the newest episode of every podcast I subscribe to, but that’s truly not a huge deal.
  • Best podcast app ever

    Best podcast app hands down. With the ability to make playlists (even better; smart playlists) and tweak pretty much anything to your liking to enhance your personal pod experience, this app is super!

    This podcasting app is one of the best I’ve ever used. Excellent when used with Apple Watch as well.
  • Unusable after recent updates

    I’ve used the app for years but, I’m nearing the end of that. For well over a week the app constantly crashes, you don’t even have to do anything, just open it up and wait, it’ll crash within 10 seconds. No indication from support when this will be fixed, I’m tired of using the web version, not sure how much longer I’ll wait for a solution, if it actually comes. I’ve reinstalled the app multiple times, I’m on the latest version of iOS, no other app I use crashes like this. I’m not the only one either, others have developed this issue.
  • Bug: Playback jumps back

    There’s a bug in this latest version where rewinding a few seconds causes the playback to jump back to where it was before you tapped the rewind button

    Love the dark mode. Love that it adapts to Waze speaking thru podcasts and replays the seconds that I missed. Love that it syncs episodes to watch if u want. Wish Apple 🍎 would let us play podcasts thru the watch’s speaker 🔈. Update Aug 2019: Still a Beast

    My ONLY nitpick is that I’d prefer to share an episode through the link to the episode’s website, instead of the overcast-specific link. But I absolutely get why they did it, and I’d probably make the same decision myself. Two thumbs up, and pay for premium to support software you love!

    I don’t see a way to rate the podcasts I listen to on this app. Ratings are important for podcast producers.
  • Lots of nit picky details
