Sharp decline

Used for a while because I like the interface compared to other apps. But with recently has had repeated unexplained instances of episodes not playing or downloading at all even after waiting several minutes, even when I’m somewhere with internet connection good enough for HD video streaming. Think this may be an issue related to recent OS updates but not sure. Regardless, 2-5 min waiting for episodes to play is pretty absurd.

I have used this podcast app for a while. To me, there is nothing better. Lots of options and control.

Recent stability issues

I hate to write this because I LOVE overcast.. the features are so smart, everything you want and nothing you don’t with a great sense of humor too :) (love the “nitpicky details”) But... recently the app has been crashing when I try to play an episode, download speeds are super slow when I’m on WiFi but have poor cell reception (weird!), if I start an episode and leave the app it stops playing and loses my progress? These problems really need to be fixed. Anyway, I just became a premium subscriber to better support the dev team. Hope y’all can get the basic playback problems fixed in the next update :)

Overcast watch app is now finally broken and useless

1
When it's not filling up my entire phone with previously downloaded podcasts - now - the watch app is Useless as it says nothing is playing when I start the podcast on Overcast on my iPhone. Apple's 'Now Playing' app shows it playing. So the Overcast watch app is Less than Useless - it makes it Harder to get to Apple's 'Now Playing' app. And they also removed the ability to move to the Next podcast from the watch app. Basic functionality. So ... I'm REMOVING Overcast and looking for a better app - as the developer does not seem do do much testing of new versions or use sanity checks to avoid Filling up my phone with previously listened to and downloaded podcasts.

One key feature broken

In general the app works. One now, IMO, major issue is with continuous play downloading an episode on cell data DESPITE my current setting of “only download on wi-fi “. Extremely annoying as this is a huge stealth data eater. Needs to be fixed ASAP as this was not the case in previous versions.

Used to be great!

I’ve used this app for a long time and it’s been flawless until recently. It no longer separates played podcasts from podcasts I am following or subscribed to. Super annoying when looking for something downloaded to listen to. Please fix!
