I HATE the new update

1
Sticher used to be my go to podcast app but I absolutely hate using it after the new update. After I did the update I lost all of my saved shows and my listening history was completely wiped out. I still had my downloads, but the record of all the shows I have collected and carefully curated into groups was just gone. Yesterday, I was promoted to login to my account again for an unknown reason when when I did so, again, all my saved shows and listening history was gone. Not only is this beyond frustrating, but I also hate the new interface. It does not save sorting preferences, so you have to change the view every time you try to find an episode within a podcast. There is also no way to easily mark an episode as played (or to download one) without clicking into each episode. This was particularly annoying when I had to manually input my listening history after it wiped my data. The ONLY reason I am still using Sticher at all is because I paid for a premium subscription. Two of my favorite podcasts are with Stitcher premium, so it is the only way I can listen to the archives. Once I finish that, I am getting rid of the app.

I HATE IT

1
Reason I hate this game called stitcher is because you have to go to live wallpaper and install this app this app and then you have to go back and you have to like and then you have to go to stitcher and put in your email and your Google and your Facebook and your Instagram please be safe and do not scam if you’re looking forward to being scammed you might as well download this but I hate it and I think you should do always look at the comment to be saved and I get scammed on the games like these and if you see this game creators I’m sorry please do not be mad I just need some fixes

TERRIBLE update

1
You lose live radio, and playlists are stored/organized/accessed in the stupidest way. The old interface worked beautifully— just open a playlist and play— but now you have to search and apply a filter to get to a playlist, and I still haven’t figured out how to actually get the playlist in the order that I had arranged it in, and It seems to only play the latest episodes of the first 5 shows or something...? I don’t know, can’t even describe the problem, that’s how bad the UI is. Especially annoying because I used to LOVE this app!!

horrible update

1
I can’t believe listening stats was removed a couple months ago. So annoying. It was one reason I kept using Stitcher instead of other apps even though Stitcher kept removing features I used. I will probably move on from Stitcher for good now. old review below: everything started downloading automatically after the last update which was frustrating. also, PLEASE STOP bringing up the connect to facebook webpage when going to view the listening stats. I don't want to connect it.

New UI is a mess, bland

1
Ive used stitcher for many years. I just updated to the new UI after quite a while since a prior update. Regretting it big time!! Most confusing, messy, overcrowded, bland interface i’ve seen or used (from a reputable source, at least) in long time. Plus the forwarding feature that i used to use on my Toyota Tundra steering wheel to Skip over ads or boring parts doesnt work any more. Have to touch screen, which isnt convenient or safe while driving. New UI stinks. Useless. Im checking out my options w apple and amazon. Further where is True Crime as a genre in discover?? You guys are moron developers.

Becoming worse

2
I have been a Stitcher Premium subscriber for 2 years now. Ever since they changed the format last year and now 10.9 update version...it’s getting worse. The other day I logged off my app to have it update itself. Then I logged back in and lost my shows. I had to add them back again. Then I checked out the website...logged in and all the shows I used to listen to (from 2yrs ago) were there. So I reorganized that. Website and app do not sync well. I miss the old layout when one can go back to a episode by the year. Instead of scrolling all the way back. It’s just disappointing since I pay a fee every month for this. If the next few months are like this...I’m going to have to end my membership.

Why take away feature?

2
Please add back the ability to add a podcast to multiple playlists. It’s so silly that you can’t.

Bad code or intentional?

2
The new app has several issues. 1. The 30 second advance requires multiple pushings (5 or 6) to work. Frustrating. It seems they are forcing you to listen to ads. 2. With Android, the time bar is below the screen, just out of reach. It's as if the size is about 95% of the actual screen. Thus, one cannot slide to the desired program time, or know how much time is left in the program.

What about user experience input?

1
3/29/21 Upgrades? OK. What? No dark mode? No reviewing shows? ALL these changes and no dark mode, no review feature. Those are the only features that would’ve made this better. Besides that it was perfect. Not anymore! I don’t want to ‘follow’. This isn’t Twitter. I want my neat little playlists including the episodes playlist. A feature added by stitcher, then stitcher taketh away. Why? I won’t upgrade to the new version on my iPhone so I’m just watching everything you ruined via my iPad. Now it won’t sync my current shows or any new shows between the 2 devices. Why does it take so much longer for new shows to show up on stitcher v. Apple podcasts? That always sucked but I put up with it for a near perfect app. Bring back the list view including the favorites, episode playlists and downloads. I need a download list so I can stop any downloads in process when not in wifi. You had this great feature that no one else had and you TOOK IT AWAY. If you’d asked, we’d have told you. But you didn’t ask. See what’s ‘Up next’ and shuffle and delete using a single swipe on the show I’m ALREADY on. Great feature! You took it away. Now it’s somewhere else. WHY? The sleep timer could be accessed within the show I was on. Why move that? At least keep it there and add it to your settings feature if you love it so much. I still know how many hours I’ve listened to stitcher because it’s still on my phone. You still know. Would’ve been smart to ask super users what we wanted. But you didn’t. For this reason *alone* Stitcher deserves to go out of business.
