  • Excellent podcast app

    For the free version of the app, there are so many amazing features! My only wish is that there were customized recommendations for other podcasts listeners might be interested in- perhaps a list of podcasts similar to the one you’re listening to? I know there’s the option to link your Twitter account, but as I don’t have one, it’s the one feature that really makes the Apple podcast app more useful and keeps me from converting all the way over.
  • Solid player

    This is my podcast player of choice, but I wish there was a ‘download all episodes’ option. Also, side loading without going through the website and without limits would be nice.
  • Simply terrific!

  • Great option!

    Overcast is my go to podcast platform. Love the playlists, makes podcast surfing lots better. It’s a little tricky to do certain things like download older podcasts but the functionality is there. Overall, my favorite by far.
  • Replace the pre-installed apple app

    Yeah, this is A lot better. No issue with downloading or finding shows. Show art is supported. Simple interface. Much better. Get it.
  • I can’t listen to podcasts any other way now.

    Overcast just makes sense. And, orange is the perfect color of choice.
  • Best in class

    By mrgrumpypants
    Handles podcasts just fine, similar to other apps, but voice boost function is fantastic. My podcasts have never sounded so good. No more having to listen to interviews where one person is ten times louder than the other.
  • Great app
