Overcast really loves podcasts. You can tell. Everything here has clearly been the result of a lot of podcast listening, and the result is an app that does everything you want to do without unnecessary features or unnecessary fuss.
Best Podcast Player
Some people will disagree with me but I was a fan of the native iOS podcast player before its recent revamp. I don't like the redesign and think it's counter productive.
Lucky for me when I started looking for an alternative player Overcast turned free. So I gave it a shot and now it's my daily driver. It has everything you could want in a podcast player and still maintains a simple and pleasant look. The 3D Touch and Apple Watch app makes it a complete package for me.
Can't recommend it enough. I even donated to the developer because I liked it so much :)
Simple and efficient
I love this app. The extra features that it contains save a lot of time especially the shorten silences and speed controls. The voice boost feature is great as well.
