Best podcast player
I love this app. It just works and does exactly what I expect. Great user interface.
It's *the* killer feature. Apparently I've saved 12 hours by now, and that's only going to go up. It's nothing at all like 1.2x speed. You should give it a try, really.
Oh, it also does automatic podcast priority ordering as well. Another wonderful feature.
The redesign is smart and modern looking. Really appreciate all that's gone into the 3.x redesign.
Hands down the best podcast app on iOS
I never review apps but Ive been using Overcast for so long at this point I felt compelled to sing its praises. Overcast has a fantastic directory and some of the nicest UI in the app market, and that alone should make it worth trying. But hey its free so did you really need that much convincing? Have to credit Marco with a lot of class for sticking to the patreon model for Overcast instead of clogging it up with screen hijacking ads.
