Beste Podcastapp

Mit Abstand die beste Podcastapp. In Kombination mit der Apple Watch genial.

Sensationelle Audio-Podcast-App

Da die standardmässige iPhone-App völlig bedienerunfreundlich und dadurch unbrauchbar wurde, springt Overcast in die Bresche. Und das machen sie so gut, wie die Apple-Version noch nie war! Die Tempo-Anpassung geht sogar so weit, dass unterschiedliche Podcasts ihr eigenes Tempo haben können.
Die Gratisversion bietet eigentlich alles. Ein Upgrade müsste man machen, um den Entwicklern Tribut zu zollen!

Simple and efficient

UPDATE: ever since the last update to ios 12, the app has a bug and will stop the podcast within minute(s) of starting.

INITIAL REVIEW: I switched to Overcast and am very satisfied with this app because unlike iTunes’ recent podcast app update, Overcast has no fuss, it is easy to use and the downloaded podcasts are well organized. The only recommendation I would like to make is to improve the search function. Unless I’m mistaken, there is a search directory but it won’t go as far as to find episodes using key words etc.
