Please Bring Back to Overcast App on iOs

I love this podcast, but I prefer to listen to it on the more full featured Overcast iOS app. The recent episodes have not come to iOS, I’m not sure it this is an accident or on purpose. Please bring the FULL NERD back to Overcast! Thank you.

Apple M1

Wino66whaevwr. You complain about these guys being PC fanboys and how the M1 is so great. Let’s see your benches? I’ll wait. The M1 while cool in its own little bubble, is trash in the real x86 dominated world. Even Apple knew this. If anyone is Being a fanboy it’s you.

No doubt the M1 is a step ahead for an arm platform, it’ll be years before its a head to head battle against x86.
