Stitcher Radio for Podcasts Reviews
Great app, but has bugs
By Dee Anders
This is pretty much the only app I use for podcast. I have noticed that recently more episodes fail to fully download or there is some error that happens. I also wish the app opened up to my Favorites page and not the home page.
It's stopped working.
Plain and simple. The past week. It literally won't start. Sad.
Only PodCaster I use, best on the market
The best and only way to interact with your podcasts.
I love it
I've used this app for nearly 5 years. Rarely has their been any issues. I would however like the editing to be a bit easier when trying to set up my listening order. I love that the podcast picks up right where I left off listening. I can skip commercials. It really has been awesome. The only thing that would make this app perfect is if they had a bit more content (schmoes knows, the jump, ESPN fc and NBA lockdown) that I enjoy.
Spoke to soon
By Broke racer.
Less than a month after I gave the App a 5 star review, everything went wrong. After an OS update all the 4 gigs of podcasts I had downloaded were lost. After downloading again more than half said unable to play at this time.
Uninstalled app and restarted the device. The entire app refuses to download or install now.
Keeps logging me out, poor user design
App keeps logging me out, front page is clearly influenced by money rather than my interests, and other monetization efforts get in the way. Ui for listening, syncing offline, and reordering is also poorly designed. Time to switch
Poor support when needed
I have over 1200 hours listening and it will no longer load on my IPhone 6. No option for tech support. Go to the mobile website, no help.
I've listened to 8730 episodes
I am about ready to look for another podcast app. It's stops all the time and then when I restart it has to re-loads the whole app and then a lot of times it'll play an ad, very frustrating.
By Mamie Ellercal
The latest version is so bad that I deleted the app from my iPhone, after having used it almost daily for years. Shame on Stitcher for ruining a great app.
Maintenance in the middle of the day?
Stitcher is down for maintenance in the middle of the day. Really?
This app is amazing. I love it and I listen to it every day!
