Listen to this!

Stop looking at other Podcast apps, Overcast is the one you need. It’s so slick and easy to use, simple subscription management and totally customisable listening settings, smart speed and playlists. For those of you frustrated with the iOS 11 Podcast app clunky interface, Overcast is a godsend. It’s like they were inside my head when I was thinking about how I wanted to interact with my Podcast library.


Overcast and it’s Smart Speed is amazing!

Such a good podcast app. It’s my person favourite. Smart speed works amazingly and I’ve saved 7 hours off my listening time so far. Ads aren’t intrusive and being able to download all podcasts at once is 👌🏻👌🏻👌🏻

Mrs Muppet ,

OMG so much better than Podcast app!

The new version of the Apple podcast app is so annoying- this resolves all those problems and is very intuitive and clean to use. Have deleted the podcast app with great delight now that I have Overcast.
