App Reviews

  • Terrible interface

    By ____ayyyyyyyy____
    Finally caved and switched over from howl since that app isn't being updated anymore. Instantly regretted it after seeing this clunky, horrible interface. In order for this app to be usable there needs to be several changes made. I don't listen to my podcasts in playlists (which this app seems to push heavily) just give me a feed that shows me what's new. There has to be navigation buttons added to the bottom of the screen to let me get around easier like in howl and apple podcasts. I shouldn't have to be hitting the back button five times to get back to where I started after looking through podcasts from categories. Seriously if you want to be the be all, end all podcast app, take a look at other apps and find out what they're doing that works. Howl and apple podcasts were far from perfect, but this is easily the worst podcast app I've used from a navigation standpoint (I haven't even had the chance to listen to anything yet because this thing gave me such a headache). It really bums me out that howl is dead and got merged into this. I'll probably just cancel my subscription and go back to apple until this gets sorted out. Because as of right now, this is absolutely not worth paying for.
  • Had high hopes, disappointed

    By Jasmin193
    I’m not particularly enchanted with Apple’s native podcast app so I decided to try Stitcher having heard it was far superior. I also wanted to check out a few Stitcher premium shows. I’m annoyed because apparently I can’t just pick up where I left off. I usually listen to podcasts before and after work and on breaks, so there will be a few hours in-between when I use the app. The play/pause button on the bottom goes away by the time I want to continue listening so I have to search for the episode all over again. It seems so fundamental to be able to easily go back to the latest played episode especially when I’m still in the middle of it. Also, I stream just like with Apple’s podcaster, but this one quits on me way more easily if I lose service. It plays that creepy sound over and over (the sound of a finished record on a record player I think). Both the lack of functionality to keep streaming and the use of that sound effect are annoying. I’ll finish out my free trial but I’m reluctantly going back to Apple!
  • Best app for podcasts and live radio - Updated 04/18

    By SongDuck™
    Updated April 2018: Stitcher is the most convenient way to listen to audio podcasts and live radio. I've been using stitcher over 6 years. I started with a Free subscription. Several years ago I upgraded to Premium subscription, which eliminates ads between podcasts and allows you to access Premium content. I think it’s well worth it. However, you can subscribe for free, if you don’t mind commercials, or want to try Stitcher. Stitcher is easy to use. It enables you to place favorite podcasts into playlists, order them as you like, and then play a playlist’s stitched podcasts straight through from beginning to end. You can download via wifi to listen to later. Another nice feature is selecting one playlist to play immediately upon opening the app, which I use for my news playlist. This is my go to podcast app. I use it every day. Highly recommend.
  • Dangerously confusing

    By Waltzing with cookies
    Great function but dangerously confusing for use by drivers (who will, despite any advice, use this app). The icons, which are just slightly lightened white-ish superimpositions on the podcast owners’ logo, are nearly invisible and require a long time to find, especially if you are changing your focus from an intense, bright light activity like driving. To compound the problem, basic function buttons are initially offscreen and require scrolling to find. Having to find invisible buttons by scrolling around so much makes this app a major, potentially multi-second distraction for a driver. There is a “car mode” for an in-progress show but those particular controls are the least distracting in the main UI. Since the majority of app use is starting new, saved or favorite shows, the “car mode” does not make this any safer. Fixing the invisible buttons would be an easy and possibly life saving first fix. Fixing the scroll heavy navigation should also be a priority. This review is for the iPhone version.
  • Why can’t I pick up where I left off?

    By NOLAdoo
    I like the stitcher content, but the interface is clunky and disjointed. First and foremost, why can’t I listen to a podcast, pause it (or have it automatically pause upon closing the app), and have it there waiting for me to pick up where I left off upon reopening the app? Seems like this should be a basic/fundamental feature. Instead, with the new update, I’m now forced to search for the episode once again to replay. What’s more, why is there not a “recently listened to” section. Another feature which would seem fundamental. It would also be nice to have a setting - and maybe it is in there but I haven’t figured it out yet - whereby I can automatically download certain shows into selected playlists upon their release. Bottom line, I like the stitcher content and still prefer it relative to other podcast apps, but I feel I spend far too much time fiddling with the unnecessarily confusing interface - which has plenty of room for improvement.
  • Love the content...hate the interface and player.

    By AlvisWords1964
    I got Stitcher, and went Premium, so I could get the entire back catalog of “How Did this Get Made”. If I had known how terrible the player and streaming engine is I never would have signed up. I listen on a very fast WiFi connection with great cellular data backup. I can’t Get through an episode of anything without it hesitating, stopping, repeating and ultimately bombing out of the episode. It disappears from my playlist and I have to go track it down if I want to hear more. I try to download...even when an episode shows as downloaded, it still will bomb out. Frustrating and maddening. If I find the same content on my iOS podcast app, I will stream with commercials to avoid the frustration of using this player. And, on the same WiFi connection my iOS podcasts playback beautifully without a stop or a drop. The issues are entirely with the shortcomings of this player/streamer.
  • #1 Buggiest App I Am Forced To Use

    By Tandtrom
    I use Stitcher 100% ONLY because of all the Earwolf Stitcher Premium shows but half the time the episodes don’t release at the right time OR (like today with the Andy Daly Podcast Pilot Project) they show as released but are unplayable, which seems to be due to a server error but the error that comes up makes sure to blame the podcast provider and not Stitcher itself. I don’t understand how errors like these are still COMMONPLACE - like in a way you’re doing SOMETHING because the baseline bare minimum function of this app now works about 75-80% of the time instead of 60% like it was when I signed up but WHAT exactly are you fixing when you work on updates if it’s not these catastrophic problems? HOW is this still happening?? Also Hollywood Handbook: Pro Version is the best podcast on this app or anywhere else for that matter, please don’t be so jealous that you take their show away just because you know the damage it could do to all the other shows if it really got out there about how good it is.
  • No longer plays my paid subscription podcasts

    By cparah
    This used to be my favorite podcast player and I have logged 5600 hours in it. When downloading episodes was added that made it the only player I used. Since then, the updates have made it more difficult to use. And in January, 2018, my paid subscription to Fox News MegaCast podcast stopped updating and disappeared from the Stitcher search engine. Since then I have asked tech support and Help-Contact Us for help in getting this podcast back. I have been told 1 - the podcast no longer exists, 2 - I should be able to access it, 3 - they will help me restore it, and 4 - the publisher has removed it from Stitcher. Every one of these has been proven to be false. Why not just tell me the truth about why this and other paid podcasts have disappeared from the search engine. It really seems that the customer service and tech support people don’t know as much as they should about this app.
  • Frustrating interface

    By Le_roxy
    I started using stitcher for the premium content, but my frustration is quickly outweighing the extra listening options. I can’t customize my download options for individual podcasts. The front page keeps bringing up suggestions that have nothing to do with the types of shows I’ve added to my favorites. The playlists only let me add shows, but I have no control over the order of the episodes. I added the premium Wolverine show and it automatically added episode 2 to the playlist. That makes a lot of sense. It takes a lot of clicks to do anything and it’s way too easy to click on the wrong thing due to the poor layout. It’s too bad that the company that is leading the way to produce premium content forces us to access it with this app. I’m going to keep using it for the remainder of my premium trial but after that I’ll probably go back to using Overcast.
  • Download Issues

    By DCgnat
    I moved to stitcher a few months ago when my previous app was not downloading my podcasts in the background like it should. All in ask is that when I walk out the door after being on WiFi for the last 12 hours that my favorite podcasts have been downloaded. Stitcher did this for a while but I've had nothing but problems the last couple weeks. It will say it's downloading 1 of 2, then 2 of 2, but when it's done nothing has actual downloaded. When I try to get it to did download manually, that doesn't work either. I also get frustrated that it deletes the last episode- even if it's unplayed - when it downloads a new one so I'm constantly re-downloading something that should never have been removed. And if this is a space saving feature, maybe a better option would be to download played episode, which can linger for a long time. Even when I'm getting space warnings, I have to manually remove those played episodes because stitcher isn't smart enough to do it For an app people can actually subscribe and pay for, I expected better. Why is it so hard to find a podcast app that will consistently download my new episodes when they're posted - without my promoting- and remove them when I've played them? I'm not asking for the moon here!
