Overcast 2 review: a freemium podcast app adds streaming and goes totally free

Glenn Fleishman | Oct. 21, 2015
The Overcast podcast app has switched from freemium to free, added streaming, and improved some of its custom audio settings—but it looks and works mostly the same.

There’s no financial penalty to try and then adopt Overcast 2 and some features may be compelling enough to encourage you to switch from an existing app—especially away from Podcasts. Users new to podcasts can get their feet wet with Overcast and, if it doesn’t fill their needs, turn to several modestly priced alternatives that take different approaches to similar tasks.

Note: I worked for Arment as an editor at *The Magazine*, a publication I ultimately purchased from him. I have no financial interest in anything he does. I am thanked in the Overcast credits for providing feedback, something I do at no cost for many products during beta testing, whether ultimately reviewing them or not.
