The apps feature set is the best around (smart speed, remove silence, etc.) but the apps are buggy. iPhone app has issues connecting to AirPods and get confused. The Watch app is nearly useless. Never syncs properly, doesn’t update with current episodes; and download mostly doesn’t work or dial-up slow. So frustrating cause when it works it’s the best. It just doesn’t always work as it should.
For the past few months the app has been locking up. Sometimes when starting a pod, and sometimes in the first 5 minutes or so, the app will freeze, start counting from zero again with no audio, or get caught in refresh like it’s trying to buffer. The only way I’ve found to fix is close app (sometimes more than once) It’s a far superior app to the native apple…but im finding myself migrating back because of this nuisance
I wish I could use this on everything spoken word that I listen to. I love the natural pause reductions. I love the very customizable playback speed. I love the interface and how smooth it works. I love this one podcast app. Keep it awesome!
Awesome podcast app, simple interface and easy to use. I love that I can set custom playback speeds for different podcasts. You can set notifications when your favorite podcast drops a new episode.
Have used Overcast for years. Never an issue. Solid app with easy to understand controls.
I love the layout and intuitive interface for searching and adding new podcasts
This is just a good app all around with all the things you would expect from a good podcast player. My favorite is the customizable skip for intro and outros. Also really like the Apple Watch app, works great.
I don’t want podcast to start playing every time I open the app. Please let me turn this off! Also my iPhone is Bluetooth connected to home stereo and, even though the stereo is off, phone is dormant, and Overcast is not even running in the background, a podcast will start playing over the stereo. This app is doing things in the background even when turned off.
Overcast stands above the rest with the simplicity of adding new, building a playlist, and smart speed for each podcast.
Way better than Apple Podcasts! Smart Speed has saved me a lot of time over the years! 261 hours, in fact!
