  • forget the first party app

    By Dom B L
    Overcast alone is perhaps enough to switch from Android to iOS. Smart Speed and Watch integration are spot on. Marco is constantly adding and perfecting features.
  • The Best Podcast App

    By thorny95
    Simply the best podcast app. That’s really all I have to say. Easy to use if you don’t want to give much thought to your podcast app, but allows deep configuration if you are a power user.
  • Great stuff, all free.

    By Deutschf
    If the podcast exists, you can get it here - for free.
  • Horrible on iPhone 6

    By Hdkdjjehxjcfhehdoehrh374847
    This app is really buggy and slow on the iPhone 6 for some reason. The audio often glitches out. The UI will get really laggy at times. It’s very frustrating
  • Crashing bugs

    By shoeman87
    Generally works great. I love the smart playlists and that it retains episodes from limited pods when I have to delete and redownload, but this version crashes a lot. Mostly when I pause for a second and then play. Hoping for a repair on that for the next version 🤞
  • Wonderful app

    By Chef Benny
    This app is great you need to get it! All you need to know is play lists, smart speed and smart sound. Get it and pay the developer for the premium model so we all have a better App Store with wonderful apps like this.
  • Go to podcast app

    By eeeconlawyer
    Overcast is currently my go to podcast app. The app has the most useful features that enhance my podcast listening experience.
  • Buggy lately

    By Alopez126
    I have the premium version of overcast and lately it’s been really buggy. It freezes a lot, or is delayed. It’s annoying to tap on the screen repeatedly without any response. Until now the app has worked flawlessly, so this is kind of a bummer. Hopefully it’ll be fixed soon.
  • Way better than the native app

    By Seamuh
    Ditched apples native app for overcast and having looked back. The functions on this app are similar to Apple’s podcast app but more intuitive and they actually work! Way better at syncing over multiple devices and downloading newest episodes.
  • Sync with other iOS devices does not work

    And I can not get any help after many attempts at trying.
