Overcast 1.0

Marco Arment’s new podcast player for iPhone. Free to try, $4.99 to unlock all features. I’ve been using it for months in beta, and it’s really good. Looks great too, with Matthew Butterick’s Concourse as the custom UI font. See also:

There are a bunch of existing podcast players for iOS, many of them quite popular. But like Marco, I was never quite satisfied with how any of them worked. Podcasts are a simple medium, but creating a good player is surprisingly difficult. (That’s usually the story for any type of app.)
