  • 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

    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.
  • This is the best podcast player

    By TPtptp34675
    The Apple podcast app was driving me crazy, so I tried a bunch of 3rd party apps. Overcast was by far the best!! This works so good and even the ads are non-invasive. Thank you and please don’t change a thing.
  • This version breaks my all playlist

    By Patrick McDougle
    Truncating to 500 episodes is not desirable. Please allow lazy loading or other pagination to solve the performance issues instead. You’re lucky you have smart speed, otherwise I’d be gone.
  • Last update broke the app, radio silence on a fix

    By trinidadiv
    All of the sudden, my smart playlist only shows episodes from Jan 17, when the oldest episodes are actually from May 16. I’ve reported the issue, which many other people seem to experience, but no word on a fix. The app is fundamentally broken at this point. I finally gave up and moved to a different app :(
  • Limited Podcasts

    By RedDog48
    This app does not have an extensive list of podcasts and does not let you manually add certain podcasts. Not sure why, but it definitely frustrating.
  • Nicely done

    By Tandoran
    Like this app so much better than stitcher and apple. Doesn’t stop in midst of playing an episode saying it hasn’t been downloaded (very mysterious), user friendly. Very satisfied.
  • Show not updating

    By Skidplate_777
    I love this app. The only issue is there are a couple shows that are not updating for me (This American Life and Criminal, and maybe others). Just noticed these shows stopped uploading new episodes on this app, but show recent episodes on other apps. This is the only bug I found, and love everything else about this app. Five stars if this bug is fixed.
