I love podcasts!
Recently, I deleted all my podcasts so I could start fresh.I had over 300.
For a while, my 256GB iPhone 12 Pro Max, and overcast, handled it well, but recently, the app would crash, whenever I opened it, including today.
As a result, I deleted my overcast account, after sending myself the OPML file that I had made.
in addition to my phone, I also have an Apple Watch series 6, HomePod, M1 MacBook Air, and an Apple TV 4K.
I’m not a huge fan of the design of the Apple podcast app, and the fact that you have to use iTunes on a PC, if you want to listen to your podcasts on windows.
However, I do like the convenience of being able to listen to them on my HomePod. I also forgot to mention, that I have an Amazon echo, which can also play Apple podcast.
I can’t decide between apple podcasts and overcast. One thing that I like about overcast, that Apple podcast doesn’t even offer, is the ability for premium subscribers to import their own audio. Though extremely rare, sometimes I come across files, such as old episodes to other podcasts, that I could import into the app, and listen to, if I were to become a premium subscriber.
I also like that overcast has a web player, that can be accessed on either Mac or Windows.
For those unaware, overcast is one of a few iOS apps, that’s also available in the App Store, on an M1 Mac.
Given all of the above information, which app should I go with?
