Overcast App Reviews

  • Great app

    By RobotFauxBot
    Great app!
  • 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.
  • great, but missing ‘power user’ features

    By squalamack
    I love Overcast but there are a number of Pocket Cast features that compelled me to switch, even though I miss Overcast’s generally smoother UI and much better sound quality. * Downloaded and “in progress” playlists. I set most podcasts to stream, but it’s nice to be able to easily see and play which podcasts are actually stored on my device. And I sometimes lose track of what I’m listening to—in progress solves that. * More per-podcast settings. I want most podcasts to only stream (or download when I choose to) but I want some to download automatically. * Number of unplayed podcasts listed in the actual podcast view * Cross-platform. Pocket Cast’s web player is great. Overcast’s...not really. And, I’ve been using an Android tablet as an ereader/thing to listen to when drifting off to sleep and a native Android app helps there. A better web app would work just as well. In general Pocket Casts is a better choice if you’ve got scads of podcasts to take care of. If Overcast would just slightly improve its web player and add some additional criteria for smart playlists I’d switch back in a jiffy.
  • Better than Apple, just 1 thing

    By Lily.Rugo
    I was tired of the Apple Podcasts app after the update, and am so glad I found Overcast! However, there’s one thing: When I’m looking at show descriptions, it gets cut off, and I don’t see any way to extend it and read the full info.
  • Was my favorite

    By LetsBeHonestinTexas
    This was my favorite podcast app but the past update it had it’s just gone downhill! Continually freezes.
  • Good overall

    By Dclarkchem
    But controls can be a little confusing.
  • Simple, Effective, Amazing

    By Karkatdepcutevantas
    Exactly what I needed to listen to podcasts. Nothing ridiculous, simple and clear UI, every feature I need. Other apps come and go but Overcast is here to stay.
  • Easy and intuitive

    By Pamandjana
    I love the smart playlists and general user-friendliness of this app. So much better than the iPhone default.
  • One of the better apps around

    By random2Stuff
    I used to have the Apple Podcasts app before and the lack of a speed control really annoyed me. I found solace in overcast since it has speed toggles all the way to 3x!! The native Podcasts has since added speed control but a little too late. The only thing against Overcast is that its ‘Explore Podcasts’ feature is a little too drab. However, I don’t think that’s a big deal as it offers a superb listening experience.
  • Not working
