What's New in Version 3.1.2
Improved standalone Watch playback:
- Volume control with Digital Crown
- Speaker output if no headphones are connected
- More reliable in the background (Thanks, Steve Troughton-Smith!)
The Watch app also now has Previous/Next Episode by 3D Touch, and the Phone side can now browse all podcasts and playlists.
The main app also gets bug fixes and a fun new toy: two-finger up/down swipes to quickly toggle the dark theme, like a light switch, just like in Tweetbot. (Thanks, Paul Haddad!)
Best podcast app
This app is thoughtfully designed and works great. Smart speed is an awesome feature that saves time while listening to a podcast by speeding up silent portions. I really like being able to rearrange episodes in a playlist on the fly without impacting the overall sorting as new episodes are released.
The CarPlay interface is great. It allows you to quickly access your playlists or listing of podcasts.
Overcast 3 makes an already great app even better.
Best Podcast App
I have been using Overcast for the past 6 months extensively. There is no other podcast app that is this good!!! I am now upgrading to premium!!
Still the Best
Overcast = God Tier
Apple Podcast Player = Poo Tier
I appreciate the consistent updates!
