  • 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

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

    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

    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

    Least-recent option does not work
  • Please make this available for IOS 10 again

    By Austyfrosty77
    App crashes my phone as soon as I open the app. I don't want to upgrade to IOS 11 (I have an IPhone 6). Happens multiple times in a row. I've supported this company in the past, and am sad to say that I must now rebuild my podcast library elsewhere because of the lack of support with older software.
  • Awesome player

    Works. Indispensable.
  • Beats iPhone app like a yard dog

    So easy to set up and LOADED with great features. Can’t believe it’s free. Look no further - this is the one.
