Best podcast app by miles
This is by far the best podcast app that I have tried in the past 3 years. After using it, it stuck and i deleted all the others from my phone.
Smart Apple Watch app too and it sits as number 3 in my dock - just before workouts. The only thing to make it better would be to sync podcasts to the watch and then I would petition to get a 6 star rating.
With the exception of a play queue I can add arbitrary episodes to easily, Overcast does *everything* I could ask for. Can't recommend it enough. Use this.
