    I’ve been using Pocket Casts for Podcasts, but I hate the new interface. One feature it has is Volume Boost which was great. Is there a good Podcast App that offers this?

    I see Overcast has Voice Boost, I guess that might be the same thing?

    Thanks

    Yes, Overcast has volume boost optimized for podcasts.

    Is it just always on? I don’t notice any difference between the Apple Podcasts and Overcasts, not in volume anyway

    You can turn it off and on. It also has a setting to shorten silences, which I like.

    I must be crazy, I can’t find the option anywhere. Can you tell me where to find it?

    Just swipe right to get those settings. Tap on the orange buttons to turn it off and on.

    Thanks. I was never looking while a podcast was playing. I was looking through all the settings.

    It took awhile for me to figure it out. I really like this app.

    I want to like it, but I just can’t find a podcast app that I really do like. I loved pocket casts until they changed it to this latest version. Right now I just like the Apple podcast app the best. But I’m going to play around with Overcast and see if I can get used to it. I appreciate all the help
