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.

Eine Podcast-App, wie sie sein sollte

Ginge es einzig nach Apple, wäre mit "Podcasts", dem Bordmittel zum abonnieren und managen von Podcasts, dieses Thema erschöpfend erledigt. Gerade aber in Bezug auf die intuitive Bedienung kann Overcast gegenüber der vorgenannten App allerdings ganz entschieden punkten. ICH kenne keine Podcast-App, bei welcher das Abonieren und das Abbestellen von Podcasts so einfach und ohne unnötiges Rückfrage-Pillepalle funktioniert. Auch die Buster-Modi zum komfortablen Überspringen nerviger Kunstpausen bei manchen Episoden lassen die Mitbewerber vielfach ziemlich alt aussehen. Und da ist die super schöne Zusammenarbeit mit Apple's Hilfstechnologie VoiceOver, mit welcher blinde Leute wie ich täglich mit IOS-Geräten unterwegs sind. Overcast hat meine uneingeschränkte Kaufempfehlung.

Sehr gut!

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