Tired of the Problems

I wish this app worked correctly. It has great features but most of the time, especially in my car, it won’t play certain episodes or overrides another app I’m listening to. This makes what should be a seamless drive, a potential for distracted driving because I can’t make this app play what I want, when I want. Not using it or not opening the app isn’t enough. I now have to uninstall it. I’m done.

Using Stitcher is a mirthless slog

I only use Stitcher because one specific podcast I listen to hosts their back catalog on Podbean (which Stitcher uses). Downloading the episodes is such an awful experience, though, that sometimes I just give up and listen to another podcast that hosts its files on a server that has better than a 56k modem connection. There are other things that make Stitcher an unenjoyable experience as well, but I have so little investment that I’m going to spend my time doing something else instead.

Why the paywall?

Podcasts I listen to for free on other appsare behind the premium payment on Stitcher. I don’t see any reason to pay for something I get for free elsewhere.

Most shows download slow if at all

I used to think the Apple podcast app was the worst, shows would interrupt frequently but at least episodes would download. I’ve been using Stitcher now for nearly a year and can’t take it anymore. Some podcasts download as fast as would be expected on WiFi, but most seem to take as long to download as listening to the entire show. Many just freeze halfway through downloading. Stitcher’s tech support claims this is the fault of the podcasts themselves and to contact them directly about the issue; no I’m not DMing a dozen of my favorite podcasters to complain about tech problems they would have no clue how to solve. Stitcher stinks, but so does every other podcatcher I’ve ever tried.

Great pod cast app and great podcast

A little shaky

Resume episode after playing in PC browser rarely works. Had to reinstall this version due to expired content error that prevented playing.

4$ for premium? I pay 9$ for Netflix and the spend billions in creative fees. Customer service is absent.

I used to love it

I had stitcher premium for nearly two years, but could no longer justify it. The app crashes and freezes frequently, and refuses to play podcasts. If you don’t have premium, the app is riddled with ads. It’s no longer for me.

Commercials in the paid service?

I purchased Stitcher Premium when a favorite show of mine put their last season on Premium-only. I found a few others and kept it going. Now there are more and more of these A-cast commercials wedged into my shows, and I’m not digging it. I’ve become so annoyed that the little chime signaling the start of one will break me from a dead sleep in an annoyed range to fast forward through it. They’re often promoting shows I’m not interested in or makeup and skin products. As a spoiled human still able to pay for services, I don’t like paying for commercials. Those shows I bought Premium for have concluded and while the interface is MUCH MUCH friendlier than Apple’s podcasting app I don’t think I’m renewing for another year. Thanks for the EOS10!
