What's New

Version 4.1

- New option to auto-delete episodes 24 hours after completion
- Password-protected podcasts are now supported (in the Add URL screen)
- New Smart Resume feature: Jumps back by up to a few seconds after having been paused to help remind you of the conversation, and slightly adjusts seeks to fall between spoken words when possible. (Option in Nitpicky Details)
- Fixed bugs related to glitchy audio, stalled playback, failed downloads, and disappearing play controls
- Extremely large playlists now only show the most/least-recent 500 episodes to improve app performance for users with very high subscription counts
- Rotation support is now iPad-only; iPhone rotation has proven too costly to maintain for its extremely low usage. My apologies to the few people who did use it.

Editors' Notes

How about some podcasts you wanted to listen to?

Better than Apple’s Podcasts app

BriFcz

Overcast is much simpler and easier to use than Apple’s Podcasts, despite offering more features and customizations. The best feature for me is the “Smart Speed”, which shortens pauses and silence in podcasts, saving me time without sacrificing intelligibility.

Bugs almost everywhere

HansvonHanes

Since the major point release Overcas has been unstable, meaning numerous crashes on launch, having app controls nonresponsive and requiring restart and fundamentaly even having to tap the play button to start listening several times before it actually starts. I must say I'm really disappointed.
