It’s either a confusing interface or just buggy. I hit the plus to add it to my shows, it doesn’t appear until much later. It’s unclear if it appeared in the favorites spot because I’ve listened to it or marked it, because it doesn’t happen immediately. Content and images load very slowly, even on WiFi. I hate to say it but the apple podcast app is better. I downloaded it for one show, I’ll delete it when I’m done.
As the top review states, stitcher is great for how it displays podcasts and its versatility when it comes to organizing podcasts. I recently got a new phone and had to download the app again, and since downloading it again I have had one significant complaint: my sorting settings reset every time I close the app. I organize my podcasts into folders by genre, and within each folder I like to have them sorted by most recently updated. That way I can choose what genre I’m in the mood for, then immediately see which podcasts of that genre have fresh content. I have tried deleting the app and downloading it again, and still it insists on sorting all my folders by custom order, aka the order in which I added them to the folder. It’s a simple nuisance to get around, just click settings > sort > recently updated, but it is a nuisance nevertheless. This used to not be an issue.
I was used to this app and put up with updates that screwed other things up but am getting tired of them. After several years I’m now looking for one that is more conducive to my wants.
They deleted my last review. App loses its place between getting in and out of car. App randomly starts playing -outloud App loses its place again from being stagnant more than 5 minutes.
After getting a new phone, the app no longer works to stream my podcasts. It says I need to connect to the internet. It does however let me download them...via internet, at the cost of phone memory. Contacted multiple times about the issue and they briefly got back telling me how to send a “debug log”. A process that didn’t work and to which they still have not responded to. Did I mention I’m paying for premium but they can’t take a moment to acknowledge my continuing issues? They seem pretty quick about responding to bad reviews so maybe this will finally get their attention.
Enough already, Stitcher. Every other week it’s some new problem, and the app doesn’t work. I’m moving on to another platform.
I used to love stitcher, until you filled every homepage option with sponsored content that I don't care about. Goodbye Stitcher, its been real.
So Stitcher crashes after I open it. This is new and my iPhone is old. How can I get a list of the podcasts I have subscribed to?
This is a fine app if you only want to listen to some of the most popular podcasts and essentially be directed to them by the app. It doesn’t contain many more obscure podcasts, and is actually kind of crappy. More generic junk for the masses.
Have enjoyed this app for years. BUT, with the latest update, I get an error message: CONNECTION ERROR Item is not downloaded. Please connect to the internet or download it for offline listening. My iPad is connected and my other apps work fine. Anyone else have this problem?
