To be given out only in weeks were I find an app worth recommending.

So, here it is: the first app of the week around here.

Overcast is an amazing free podcast player for iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch. I know what you're thinking ... I already have that janky podcast app that comes with my phone ... why would I download another one?

Well, dear reader. Precisely because that app on your phone is janky. And can that app of yours automagically trim the silent spaces between spoken words to trim time from a podcast without you noticing a thing?

I didn't think so.

Downside, you'll have use Overcast's simple interface to re-subscribe to any podcasts, and you'll have to fire up janky to unsubscribe over there. But it's a small price to pay. Overcast is just that awesome and solves a problem I didn't know I had.
