The app plays random podcasts and there is no way you can avoid the ones you don’t like. There is one F-word laden right wing propaganda podcast that they incessantly insert between my marked favorites. If I mark all my favorites, Stitcher is only slightly influenced by my own preferences, and will continue to force me to listen to content they want me to hear.
I really like this app. It's so much easier for me to navigate that iTunes podcasts. However, I wish there were an option to speed up listening speed! Like iTunes has. Can you please add? :) That would make it perfect! Every now and again it's buggy, but I overlook that for the design and accessibility of this app. Love it! Just add speed up function!
I’ve used stitcher for many years, and continue to do so even in the wake of the apple podcasts app. I like the user interface. It has most features you would want from any podcast app (ability to download, create groups/lists). One thing I would like to see, is a more robust recommendation engine. I’d like to see podcasts recommended to me, based on my listening habits.
I’ve never left a review before... But I’m compelled. I love so many wonderful witty comedians and improvisers on this ‘form but goddamn this UX Is an abomination. Have they actually done the user research? They must have, but golly gee, it’s so bad I had quit for a while. With new stuff by saucerman, pft, lapkus, superego et al I came back for more. Now I just wanna listen to all the new stuff then delete stitcher again for a while...sigh I should LOVE this app. Instead I get a daily dose of navigational frustration. I love you all
Generally this has been a more podcast app. I like the premium content and features like a timer. However, the latest version seems to pick a random podcast to play on startup (after the app was unloaded/uncached from memory) was as before it would remember where I left off. This is a major pain for podcasts with large number of episodes.
The only app I regularly update in hopes that they’ll make things smoother, lock screen controls frequently don’t appear, slow loading pop up ads, will occasionally speed up podcasts as if I’m playing on 2x speed. Update: I no longer use this app after an update that causes ads to show much more frequently when pausing and resuming episodes. I regularly pause my app for just a few seconds and it very jarring to be thrown back in with an ad
Used to be easier to use this app Gave up trying to reactivate account for slate plus. I’ll just find another way
A long time ago, I could get rid of what I’d listened to. That’s not possible anymore. I wish you’d bring it back. It’s confusing to just have all played shows sitting there forever.
I’ve never used an app that worked as poorly as this one. Even when using the newest version, this app constantly crashes. When using it with Car Play, it rarely shows any information on the screen, and it will play for two seconds then pause again and again. If it weren’t for the exclusive content, I would have deleted this app after a week. I can’t wait for my subscription to be over so I can get Stitcher off of my phone.
I've really liked the app until this last update. Easy to navigate. Very functional. But this Latest update has caused the app to crash on my iphone8+ every time I start a new podcast. Speed control seems to only be available on my watch as well... Which is weird. I accidentally must of hit it and it took me forever to find the control. Edit: Crashes seem fixed with new update. Extra controls via swipe up is nice, but not intuitive at all, but back to fully functional for me!
