Overcast is a popular iOS podcast app developed by Marco Arment. It’s notable for its voice boost and smart speed features. It was originally released in 2013 as a paid app. Since this, it’s moved to a freemium model with ads. For a annual payment of $9.95, users can remove ads, change to a custom icon, and upload their own audio files to a website to listen inside the application. Overcast offers apps for iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, CarPlay, and the web.
The app’s design strikes a nice balance between following modern iOS design standards, but remaining unique. The default color scheme is light and unobtrusive. The main navigation includes a list of your playlists, your subscriptions, and buttons to further manage your subscriptions and playlists.
Like most third- party podcast apps, it pulls from the Apple Podcasts directory to power its directory, but it also has a way to see what other shows your Twitter followers have recommended.
