A powerful, simple iPhone podcast app.

Overcast is an iOS app by Marco Arment which downloads and plays podcasts. It has been positively reviewed by several journalists, with The Verge and The Sweet Setup both naming it as the best podcast listening app for iOS in 2015 and subsequent years.

Overcast was originally announced at the XOXO festival in 2013 during a talk by Arment on competition and the risks and benefits of how crowded a creative field is.

Unique listening features include "Smart Speed", which shortens quiet gaps in the podcast, and "Voice Boost", which balances out the EQ across all podcasts "so every show is loud, clear, and at the same volume".

In April 2019, Overcast introduced a feature that allowed users to share clips from podcasts to social media.

In January 2020, Overcast was updated to allow users to skip the intros and outros of podcasts.

About "Shefik presents Invocation"

Aptly titled "Shefik presents Invocation", the nationally syndicated radio show is a mesmerizing and thought-provoking journey through musical discovery and appreciation that spans the decades. The show is currently broadcast on over 20 terrestrial radio stations and frequencies throughout the United States. Each one-hour episode, executive-produced and hosted by media personality Shefik, highlights one relatable focal point (chosen by Shefik), along with an accompanying playlist of songs (curated by Shefik), encompassing a unique thematic concept that invigorates the audience with creative impact. Top recording artists, actors, business executives, politicians, community leaders, and other special guests are invited to offer their own commentary on the weekly topic, as a supplement to Shefik's engaging mindset. The radio show's online hub at invocation.co serves as a conduit for discussion of the show, while featuring related videos and auxiliary content. The journey continues right here and everywhere.
