Use it every day, but has some issues. It started running very slow. In trying to solve the issue i found that it had balloned to be 17GB of storage on my phone. It apparently wasn't actually deleting anything and clearing the cache did not help. Reinstalling fixed the issue. Reinstalling the app once a year or 2 is not to debilitating, so I will definitely be using the app in the future, but thought this was an issue for people to be aware of just in case theirs starts slowing down.

I would just like to say: thank God for stitcher! For some reason, on this particular Android phone, the Google podcast app doesn't exist for download. I thought I would never get to listen to podcasts again, save for on YouTube. And then I discovered Stitcher! This app has truly been a life saver; couldn't recommend it more highly. Also, I really like the interface layout itself. The list of podcasts you're following, for example, is incredibly aesthetically pleasing.

This is the only app I've been able to find that lets me group my podcasts. It's hard for me to believe it's not a regular feature everywhere - sometimes I want history, sometimes news and I don't have to scroll through a million irrelevant ones. I knocked a star off because it's not really good at recommending podcasts based on your preferences. Even going to genres, they have very few. So I have to look things up online for suggestions. That's why I keep trying other apps, but come back here.
