App Reviews

  • Simple and easy

    By HDA2929
    This review was simple and easy to write. Overcast is as simple and easy to use podcast app as you can find. Very organized, playback modes are self explanatory, a totally intuitive layout (would like the timer access to be a bit bigger). I’ve shown a number of non-computer literate people, who have always wanted to listen to podcasts, Overcast and it took them a full minute to catch on and get hooked. What more is there to say.
  • I really love Overcast! Have sworn by it for years.

    By alex.365
    Really like the simple design and nice features. Have loved it for years!
  • The best podcast app by an amazingly talented developer.

    ‘Nuff said.
  • Sleep function no longer works

    By B-tastic
    Or it’s not intuitive and I don’t know how to use it. I use this every night and since the update I have missed entire episodes can you give me instructions or fix it please. Otherwise it’s back to the drawing board to find another podcast app.
  • Beats the Apple app easily

    By staledata
    This is the first app I install on a new iOS device. Embarrassing for Apple that they fall so far short it. Only thing I'd ask is for more detailed watch controls
  • Not obvious how to update podcasts.

    By infriknfix
    There is no obvious way to update podcasts. I’m sure it exists, if it doesn’t it deserves one star, but it’s not obvious where it is.
  • Needs to support other speakers

    By Huberton12
    No ability to cast to Chromecast.
  • Shutting down

    By mikeock
    My app has shut down on me 3 times without prompt today.
  • Doesn’t auto delete podcasts older than 60,90,120 days

    By Big Pianst
    I can’t get Overcast to properly manage podcast downloads. If I set it up to keep 10 I played episodes, it keeps only old episodes and won’t auto download the latest episodes and auto delete the old episodes. Thus I have to set it to manual delete episodes and then the app takes up so much memory until I delete the old episodes episodes I haven’t listened to. Overcast out lease fix this! Please give a setting to keep the 10, 20, 30 most recent episodes and auto delete anything older than the 10 latest. Look at Beyondpod in Android for the best management settings.
  • Why can’t I see and listen to all new the podcasts?

    By SFCalgal
    Apple has so muddled up its Podcast app that I was reluctantly forced to look elsewhere. With every iOS update after 11 I would be summarily unsubscribed from one or more podcasts and it was exceedingly frustrating. This app is very well recommended but for some bewildering reason episodes that I have not played do bit consistently show up in the Unplayed column. I regularly have to go to the All Episodes column to find the most recent one I want to hear. I cannot find another way to reach the developers and the website link merely takes me back to the app. Please fix!
