  • Needs work

    By imagine177
    The app is unpleasant to navigate, not only is there a bizarre combination of swipes and clicks to get around but the buttons are just a shade different from the background and are too easily over looked. Not only do you have to work at finding the content you want, the mechanics of the app are equally frustrating. Often the podcast I’m listening to will suddenly stop and say it’s no longer available. Now this could be a third party issue (ie soundcloud) but the one that really bugs me is even tho I’ve set my playback preference to play oldest to newest it refuses to do so and will always play the next oldest. Why?!
  • Good 'tent, not great execution

    By ShaneIsTaken
    Love it because it's the only way I know of to hear all Teacher's Lounge episodes. However, you know how every podcast uses episode numbers? Not Stitcher! I have to Google the episode I want to listen to and find its release date and then go back to Stitcher. Also, you have to play an episode and then tap the info button if you want to see who is on the episode and it's not always listed. Howl did a better job with UI than Stitcher. I shouldn't have to open the iPhone podcast app to see who I'm listening to on Stitcher. "We're normal now."
  • Why speed up the audio?

    By Jayvonne
    I was dedicated until you sped up the audio on my favorite podcasts to the point of destruction. I was forced to go to ITunes for my news. They answered me and they were right. All is well and I'm back with Stitcher. Thank you, developers.
  • no.

    By Erin Anderson
    - confusing interface with wayyyy too many options for how to access your podcasts and episodes - too much unnecessary content being plugged; i just want to see what my favorites or new eps are, and can browse elsewhere if i choose - bizarre that you can’t remove a download from an episode “currently playing” ... which means you literally have to start a new one to take this action - most insanely, i can’t open the app if i have no service, even if i have previously downloaded episodes. which means i can’t use the app if i’m on the subway and hadn’t opened the app prior to going underground. seriously? would absolutely never use this if the service didn’t have two podcasts i listen to that aren’t available elsewhere.
  • Frustrated

    By bethi143
    I just downloaded stitcher because some of the podcasts I like have older episodes on here. I have spent 2 days trying to listen to 1 episode. It stops playing about every minute. I haven’t made it more than maybe 2 minutes of continuous play. I should just hit play.... unless I’m doing something terribly wrong here. I’m disappointed and very frustrated.
  • Wow this app is rough

    By Hdkdokscdhdhd
    I switched to this app because I wanted the Earwolf content but compared to Instacast and Apple pod app this app is clunky and doesn’t make sense. The “play next” function really needs work. Please update the UI, the content is totally work paying for but the app is not great.
  • Good car mode

    By Seeemef
    I listen almost exclusively in my car, and I like the car mode. My recommendations to the developers: * Do not let the device sleep while in car mode. * Add a “Play Last” function, to go along with “Play Next”. This will make it easier to construct playlists. Thank you!
  • I hate this app

    By wheez04444
    It is constantly failing. I can’t turn off the stupid mobile thing that comes on in the car. Then I’m having to reboot it thirty times to get it to play for 5 minutes just to have it fail again.
  • Does not work well with car play

    By Slomly
    Using directly on phone works ok but with CarPlay I’ve had many problems and find it unreliable.
  • Shockingly poor design

    By Good guests, annoying listen
    The content on Stitcher can be excellent (e.g. How Did This Get Made) or unlistenable (e.g. 85% of the others). But the format, layout, navigation, features, intuitiveness, accessibility and ease of use are so bad it defies belief. Restaurant websites from 2002 has a better design. If you’re listening to new podcasts as they publish, I guess it’s okay. If you’re listening deep in an archive (which is the main reason to subscribe - all the good programs are already free on other platforms), it’s brutal to find a specific program or browsing to find something that fits your mood. Two stars only because “HDTGM” is phenomenal.
