  • Niche product, use sparingly

    By Karell
    For Overcast's specialty features, it is unparalleled. Having said that, here's the other side: If (like me) you have too many podcasts, this app becomes unstable. It skips & crashes frequently. Sometimes it's unable to complete a sync, which you'll never know anymore because the status bar has been removed. Which doesn't actually solve the "Last Sync Failed" problem, it just hides it.😕 As a paid user, I can't use it on more than one device without ads. When I 'restore purchases' on one device the ads reappear on the other one. Since there's no way to purchase more than one license, this is just mean. I’ve been wondering for years, if Overcast caches my episodes on its servers *why* can’t it re-download them after an iPhone restore or accidental deletion? What was supposed to be the advantage of caching, which is the alleged rationale behind recurring payments for use. Not a terrible app, but not great either. Save it for podcasts that would be unlistenable without its special features.

  • Near perfect

    By Ramplo
    This is not the first podcast app I've used and I love it for all the reasons it's marketed for.
  • The best podcast app.

    By Rancid!23
    Hands down, this is the best podcast app out there. I can’t recommend it enough.
  • Overrated

    By donkeysuit
    Very limited utility compared to other podcast apps. Poor UI design makes even basic actions like adding a new podcast a pain.
  • So glad I found it

    By MaggieMimsy
    When Apple updated the podcast app, it ruined its functionality. It became so unintuitive. I was desperate for a better app. It was really affecting my ability to enjoy and find podcasts. Thank goodness for Overcast.
  • Far nicer to use than the Podcasts app

    By Yaybucksr
    All the simple, intuitive design you’d want with just the right amount of options and feature control. I’ve hit a few snags with controls on the Apple Watch in WatchOS 4 but I imagine that’ll be cleared up soon.
  • Best podcast app

    By Theguywiththethings
    I’ve used many and this is the podcast app I prefer. Easy to use, excellent features, and Marco listens to feedback and makes good design choices.
  • Love it

    Only podcast app I can use. The rest are so buggy or make no sense organizationally. So glad I found this one!

    Update: New design on iPhone X feels right from the start. Solid 5 stars!
