  • Doesn’t download files

    By Inextinguishable
    Fails to download files from subscribed podcasts, under Wi-Fi or cellular connection. Some download up to a point, say, 10% or 40%, and then go back down to 0%, repeating this endlessly thereafter. This hasn’t happened before in my years of relying on this app. Please fix it ASAP, thank you.
  • Works smoothly

    By Jack McDaddyo
    Intuitive, appropriately minimalist
  • Amazing functionality and discoverability

    By ianinosaka
    I’ve used almost a dozen different podcast apps over the years but Overcast is by far the best for ease of use and discovering new shows. Easy Saving, sharing, and flexibility of listening how I like it (for example, customizing speeds for different podcasts) are just some of the reasons I keep coming back to Overcast. Cheers for the good work!
  • Thank you Overcast

    Overcast’s audio processing and actually very good podcast suggestions (in the ad bar) make my daily commute better. Thank you for this great app and service, Overcast Team!

  • Love it since day one - pay a developer

    By taotsu
    I have paid for the app since day one and have happily adopted the patronage model and will continue to do so. If you wonder about ads, go listen to "under the radar", ep. 45! Developers need to eat. Enjoy the app and pay the developer if you can! Just to add this: this app is nearly too good to be true!
  • Good software

    Beat of the podcast software for my needs.
  • This is the best Podcast application because...

    By Stuartcw
    This is the best Podcast application because the high speed play capability is much better than other podcast applications. It is so clear that you will forget that you have enabled it!

  • Late to the game but this app is awesome

    By Emiapple
    Has all the features I’ve ever wanted for my podcast habit!!! It took apple messing up their app for me to be motivated enough to look for another podcast player and glad that I did!
