I like to listen to medical and historical podcasts on my commutes. I have years of material in iTunes and limited listening time, I don’t need new subscriptions. I just need to queue up selected podcasts on my device. I prefer not to waste cellular data and I’m not interested in listening from newer to older (in fact many medical podcasts need to be sequenced the other way).
iOS Podcasts.app worked for this, back when I could choose a Playlist in iTunes and sync it. Today’s iOS 11 Podcasts.app is pretty much worthless.
So today I tried Overcast. I can select the podcasts I wanted in iTunes and drag them to the desktop. I subscribed to Overcast.app premium so I could upload them for download into Overcast (no iTunes support).
That’s when I found uploads are one … at … a …. time. Not to mention slow, but really I could live with slow. Overcast.app is even less useful than Podcasts.app
I wasted $10. I’ve canceled subscription renewal.
