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.

The most humble app I've ever seen

This app has all the irritating features seen in other free apps either turned off or tuned down to bare minimum. They don't even ask for a review. You literally have to go to the settings menu and give it. Functionality wise, it has more features that almost all other podcast app. The *only* thing I feel is missing is the listening stats like those available in Audible.

Love it!

Okay so I’ve been using this app since I started listening to podcasts. Almost over a year now. And I’ve literally zero complaints about this app. It’s absolutely a blast to use. One of the ways I judge an app is its ability to disappear and let the user focus on the most important part. And this app does absolutely that, It gets out of the way to let me focus on the most important thing, Podcast.
