  • Love this app

    By Mr.landini
    I love this app it allows you to download podcast for free with minimal ads. Also they will never ask you for ratings like all the other apps do! I am only 11 years old and I got it yesterday and have 34 podcast this app will only get better. Please enjoy
  • It’s good.

    It’s an app. It works. It plays podcasts. It has options.
  • Great

    By JarredDwain
    I absolutely love this app; although, I’d prefer if it had a “meshier” interface.
  • Great App

    By ReverendFun
    I love it. Plays well and works with all my devices. Highly recommend.
  • WAY better than default Podcast app.

    I generally stay within the Apple ecosystem as much as possible, but Overcast is a far superior Podcasting app. It reliably downloads new episodes every time and never freezes or quits. Plus the amount of granular controls make this app so worth it. Still works with Apple Watch and CarPlay, it basically acts like a fully native app.

    This app keeps it simple. Able to download all my podcasts in one place and it has the controls and ease of use you want. Best podcast app I’ve used
  • Good when it works

    By Cheayo
    Before most recent update I constantly got “stream failed”, though it would try again if I pressed the play button. The most recent update stopped those errors...except now the app just randomly stops streaming, claims the podcast is 0:00 minutes long, and refuses to try again, with that podcast or any other, until you completely close the app and wait for a little while to relaunch it. Not great for listening while driving.
  • Great, however this update...

    By Ramplo
    I’ve been using this player for years, I love it. Finally upgraded my phone to iOS 11 and re-ordering podcasts is now VERY frustrating and frequently crashes the app. Very difficult to create playlists. Dragging and dropping just doesn’t work anymore.
  • Suggestion

    By soakingwet
    Great app, I would love if you could add a feature to list playing history so that I could look back at what I’ve listened to over the last week or month.
  • Best podcast app period!
