Adding Ads

A lot of indie developers struggle to make sustainable income in the App Store.

Overcast trying ads
Sucks to have another great indie developer implement ads. I totally understand why, I just wish the financial reality of the App Store was different. I’ve always paid for Overcast, the one time unlock at the start and the patronage model in the second year. I’ve tried all the other apps but I always return to Overcast. It just feels the best, it fits how I think about managing my podcasts. Clean and Simple, all the right features and no unnecessary crap cluttering it up. My only minor complaint is the lack of a Mac App. We streaming just doesn’t cut it for me. I often end up listening to podcasts on my phone at my desk, since Messages on the Mac podcasts is really the only thing left only on my phone for my daily needs. 

I’ll still pay for premium in hopes that my little contribution can keep one of the best developers in the game!
