Schlicht der beste Podcast Player im AppStore

Ich habe die meisten Podcast Apps durchprobiert, von Pocketcast bis hin zur Standart Podcast App von Apple und unter all diesen hat mir Overcast mit Abstand am besten gefallen. Alles funktioniert einfach und intuitiv, Apple Watch und Apple CarPlay Anbindung sind ein netter Bonus und kleine Kniffe, wie das automatische Skippen von Intros oder Pausen innerhalb der Folgen, sowie die sympathischen Untertitel der Menus innerhalb der App runden das Packet perfekt ab. Wenn man dann noch bedenkt, dass die ganze App von nur einer Person entwickelt und betreut wird investiert man gerne 10€ im Jahr für die Premium Version, die essenziell nur die Werbung entfernt.
Einziger Vorschlag meinerseits währe das bisherige Premium Modell auf das von Tweetbot umzuwandeln, da man durch die Tips dann selbst entscheiden könnte, ob man bspw. 5€,10€ oder 15€ bezahlen möchte.

Ansonsten von mir eine uneingeschränkte Empfehlung.

Sehr gut!

Beinhaltet alle Funktionen (z.B. auch Kapitelübersicht), ist sehr übersichtlich und intuitiv leicht zu bedienen!
