  • Latest update crashing

    By Snafu77
    Choosing podcasts and the newest update crashes and reopens in the same place and won't go anywhere else. Clearing the memory didn't help. Just reopened in the same podcast page. Had to uninstall and reinstall. First time it let me down in years. Paid contributor. No, I didn't lose all my podcasts by deleting.
  • Love it!

    Love it. Delete iTunes right now. All you need for podcasts is Overcast. Not iTunes, not Spotify, not those other lame podcast apps. Overcast is it. Simple design. Easy use. Awesome organization and layout. - - - Download that baby what are you waiting for ...
  • Freezes and closes

    By Twainy
    OK you open the app, within 3 seconds it freezes, goes black, closes. I paid for this app. Fix it. I lose all of my podcasts if I have to delete it. I need a good free app ... any suggestions?
  • Still a buggy mess

    By tom5304
    I had given up on Overcast a while back, but I had been running it on an iPhone SE. I just picked up a new iPhone 8, so I thought I’d give Overcast another try. Nope, the app still freezes, it still chokes when it tries to sync, it still gets stuck on downloads. And I’m still out $10 for a subscription to an app that doesn’t work. Pocket Casts runs fine, Castro runs fine, but Overcast can’t go ten minutes without a glitch or a freeze or a crash. That’s life. Thanks for understanding.
  • Only on iOS

    I LOVE the overcast app but not apples most recent phones. Nothing has changed and I’m very tired of my phone not working. It makes me sad that if I do switch to an S9 plus, I won’t be able to use this app for podcasts. PLEASE make a version for the Google play store. It would instantly be great for anyone using a Google powered phone. 🙏
  • Gone downhill

    By Mendimoon
    While I loved this app when I first started I’m using it a year or so ago, it has gone downhill. The search functionality has never been great - but I feel like it has gotten worse. It is impossible to find episodes on a new topic I want to learn about. I was trying to prep for a debate on the future of AI, and after 10 frustrating minutes, I had two episodes on my list. I hope over to Apple podcasts and in less than 60 seconds, I found over 10 episodes that perf crouch met my needs - what a difference! The other problem with the app is the playlist. I will spend 15 minutes curating a 20 podcast playlist for the weekend. As soon as I start playing it, 50-75% of the year episodes magically disappear- so frustrating! This happens literally every weekend. I am moving back over to apple- what a shame.

  • So much better than the Apple app

    By Pjp2016
