App Reviews

  • Great except...

    By Kizzy J
    Great app overall. I love the customizability. However, one complaint at the moment: whenever I open an Offline Listening playlist with podcasts already downloaded, go to Settings to turn on Airplane Mode, then back to the Stitcher app to listen to downloaded material, I get a pop-up saying, "Turn off Airplane Mode or use Wi-Fi to access data." This is annoying and shouldn't happen since my material has already been downloaded. Please fix!
  • look elsewhere...

    Been trying out a couple of different podcast hosts. Stitcher is always failing or always the last to load newly uploaded episodes. Looks nice and easy to use but for some reason can't grab fresh episodes as quickly as the others.
  • Hot garbage

    The title says it all. Nothing feels better than wanting to listen to all your favorite podcasts only to find a confusing interface, horrible search option, and sloppy audio quality. I was looking to catch up on one episode and it took about 10 minutes of scrolling to find it, then when I found it the audio was choppy in sections. It's not like podcast apps are something new, so I don't even understand how they could acquire all these podcast networks but have such an awful phone/desktop app. Avoid this app and don't support them. It's only a cash grab to make money off of a growing community. Support the podcaster instead of Stitcher.

    I try to avoid leaving negative reviews for apps, but this is truly one the worst UI of a widely-used app that I've seen. Like every detail feels designed to confuse and annoy.

    If slow not at all user-friendly and hard to navigate. Howl had its flaws but it runs a lot better, definitely a smoother experience.

    Terrible interface, difficult to navigate and use. Not intuitive at all. Have the designers of this ever used an app before?
  • Latest update would't authenticate with facebook.

    I've updated my review. 5 Stars. They fixed the facebook authenticator issue within 24 hours.
  • Utter garbage, can't download episodes

    This app is terrible - unintuitive interface, horrible search function, bad playback controls, and an annoying Siri-like robot (that you can't turn off as far as I can tell) that says "RESUMING EPISODE" in a voice that sounds as if she's having a stroke. It's like this thing was programmed by a bunch of extras from an ITT Tech commercial. I only downloaded this and paid for premium to listen to old episodes of How Did This Get Made. Stitcher is the only way to listen to those episodes but, as good as the show is, it's not worth the headache of dealing with this app. You are SUPPOSED to be able to download episodes and listen to them offline - however, this feature DOES NOT WORK AT ALL. The episodes say they've been downloaded but will still buffer and use up data. If you delete them and try to redownload, you can't! Unbelievable. Perhaps Earwolf can create a new comedy podcast dedicated to what a bad joke this app is. Please hire better programmers ASAP to fix this buggy mess.
  • Should be better by now

    These guys are like the AOL of podcasts. They even call it "Stitcher Radio" to con dummies into thinking they invented podcasting or that it is a radio subscription. Neither is true. This is a review for "Stitcher Premium", the paid app service. Pros: *Some exclusive content (not much) *Some commercial free content (not nearly as much as you think. Still many, many commercials on what I listen to) *Variable speed algorithm seems smoother than on other players *Can search within shows OR episodes. If you are following certain guests or topics, this is nice. Cons: *FF/ Rwd is only available in 30/30 *When you hit back orforward on your speaker or headphones it skips or backs up to previous podcast, not 30 seconds ahead or back. Major, major deal breaker for me. *No feature to eliminate silence. On my main player (pocket Casts , have eliminated 30 HOURS with that feature alone. Adds up. *Ads, like everywhere else unless it is a stitcher original or there is some deal with the podcaster. I just skip ads on other players. No big deal. The future of podcasting will not be monetized.
  • Buffering

    I downloaded stitcher so I could try it out as I have been testing which podcast app works best. Upon downloading stitcher, I am met with a horrible interface that is just too clunky to navigate. I then tried to load an episode, but the app goes into an infinite buffer in which I can't listen to any of my podcasts. The app support says to restart the iPhone and I tried that but it still keeps buffering.
