Overcast

There is one main problem with podcasting apps. When you hear a great piece of audio there is no way to share it with your friends without forcing them to listen to a full episode. The solution is to add a feature to the application that will allow users to create visuals based on pieces of the transcript and share it with your friends.

UX AND UI

When you hear a great piece of audio there is no way to share it with your friends without forcing them to listen to a full episode. This redesign of the podcast player, Overcast makes finding and sharing episodes simple. The new feature will allow users to select and share a segment of the podcast as well as create a short video that they can then post it on social media.

 
 

The User

Podcast listiners want to reach an episode in the simplest number of steps no matter what feature they are using.

 
 

New Feature

By selecting a piece of transcript the user is given the ability to share the corresponding segment of audio. When the user presses share they are taken to a video creator where they can make visuals for it before posting the clip to social media.

 
 

Screens

Redesigned screens that feature the new branding aesthetic and new features.

 
 

Prototype
