Editors' Notes

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 audio podcast app, navigation so and so

I use and continue to use this app for its audio features: removal of background noise, emphasize of speech audio, play restarting from a few seconds before la speech.

But:
- the navigation is completely custom and not always intuitive
- to download a file when in cellular, you need to start playing it?!? Then you can download it and stop playing it
- finally, what drives me completely crazy, often new episodes are published but you can’t play or download them because clearly there is a server component used to check for new episodes and send notifications. Problem: often this server part is slow in responding and you want half an hour (or even one/more hours) refreshing...
