This new update has been nothing but garbage and bugs and missing features. I wonder if they have any plans to get their act together and make the app compatible with Alexa?
I also do not enjoy navigating this new version ...I’ve been a loyal user of stitcher and I’ve really enjoyed it for years...heavy user!!! I especially miss the way my favorites list was organized and it was much easier to optimize phone storage because it was easier to delete old shows etc.
The only reason I’ve stuck with Stitcher is because of the great original shows and Premium only content. However, the app experience leaves much to be desired. Episodes won’t play at all for hours, especially on day of release, episodes will stutter and pause and play randomly. I used to like that the app gave me my stats of listening history but that seems to have been lost with the redesign. It’s frustrating that this is supposed to be the premium podcast app, and it can’t get something as simple as playing the episodes right.
Whatever update you did is utter crap. I couldn’t figure out why everything on my iPhone had changed until I came to the reviews. New podcasts I follow don’t show up on my feed. Who listens to chronological order shows from end to beginning? I find that to be really stupid, yet when I try to listen “oldest to newest” it states there are no shows to listen to. Even the way the app looks has changed and I’m not sure for the better. Looks exactly like the apps my 3 year old granddaughter watches. I see that you are “doing your best” to solve this issue but it’s been at least a month and I still can’t listen on my iPhone. Maybe fix it back so we can actually use what we are paying for? At this point I’d rather just let my favorites go that are only on stitcher.
Lousy app for all the reasons everyone has already said. Treats its users with contempt. No consideration of our interests or histories. No customer service to speak of. The stitcher Twitter account is still busily promoting their “shiny new app”, despite it being unanimously repudiated. Hard to believe they’re listening to us. Oh, stitcher, I’ve copied and pasted your rote response into this review, so you don’t have to: Thanks for your feedback - we hear you and are working hard to make stitcher the best podcast app it can be!
Stitcher is convenient. There are a lot of great podcasts within but each time they update it gets worse. “Customer service” as is abysmal. I’ve had problems with random 5 seconds pauses and still occasionally hear adds from premium content for months. They get back to you in 2-3 weeks then say take a screen shot and we’ll get back with you. Don’t hold your breath. Essentially the update killed all that was charming or unique about the app. Then they replaced it with bug ridden b.s. that just made everything bad. Please, quit your day jobs developers.
The update destroyed everything. My podcasts won’t stay in the groups I put them in and they cannot be put into more than one group. Sometimes shows disappear altogether and somehow I’m just not subscribed to those shows anymore. More often than not, nothing new will load.
It’s crazy that now every time you choose something to listen to, you have to take several steps to set a sleep timer if you don’t want continuous play. I like to listen to single episodes. Let users choose whether to use continuous play or not. Also, listening stats are no longer available.
Oh stitcher how I love thee but the recent changes have made it so hard to see the icons for my podcasts. The old layout was the bomb!! Just my opinion, still a loyal fan, just have to get stronger glasses🤓
If you were able to allow me to use Bluetooth controls to forward and rewind in an episode before, why can’t you now? This is a dealbreaker.
