OVER­CAST

HWM (Malaysia) - - TEST -

The best thing about Over­cast are its Smart Speed and Voice Boost fea­tures. In­stead of the stan­dard way to speed up play­back, which makes peo­ple sound like chip­munks, Smart Speed dy­nam­i­cally short­ens si­lences to speed play­back with­out dis­tor­tion.

I’ve used Over­cast as my main pod­cast player since 2014, and it claims that Smart Speed has saved me 36 hours. Voice Boost nor­mal­izes au­dio, which is great when lis­ten­ing to podcasts with vary­ing de­grees of vol­ume.

Over­cast is a uni­ver­sal app, so it works on both iPad and iPhone, and even has a browser-based player. Over­cast shines with an over­all fin­ish that re­flects an at­ten­tion to de­tail, the app is el­e­gantly de­signed and easy to nav­i­gate.

How­ever, Over­cast is re­ally built for those who lis­ten to a se­lect list of podcasts’ ev­ery episode. Even with smart playlists, it isn’t easy to pri­or­i­tize episodes to only down­load the ones you want to lis­ten to.

Hard to pri­or­i­tize episodes to only down­load the ones you want. Smart Speed saves you lis­ten­ing time while sound­ing nat­u­ral.

Over­cast is best for peo­ple who sub­scribe to ev­ery episode of a pod­cast, rather than in­di­vid­ual episodes.

Over­cast’s best fea­tures, Smart Speed and Voice Boost, save play­back time and make podcasts sound bet­ter.
