Used to be my most used app Every time I open the app I get an error message. I tried restarting my phone and uninstalling then reinstalling the app and no luck.
Progressively worse.. 1. Scheduled podcasts don't appear on time, if at all. 2. Search function is virtually garbage. 3. App force closes 4. Audio ads randomly pop up 5. Can't pick a follow-up program because the app closes- you have to click on the 3 dot thing 6. I'm actively looking for a new podcatcher. I'm trying out audioboom and if it's even halfway decent- in deleting this app forever.
Now Ad Filled App I used to love this app. It was one of the only apps I enjoyed with no ads. Now, there are several ads just to get to the homescreen. Sad
Broken Stitcher used to be my favorite app. But now it's virtually unusable now for two major reasons. 1. Offline listening doesn't work. I download a podcast to listen to in my car on my way to work, I hit play and it says “playing without an internet connection”. But it still streams it which is using data, costing me money. 2. In my car, a podcast will only play for a short period of time before skipping to the next in my favorites, only for that one to play for a few seconds before finishing up the playlist.
Major wakelock/system issues. Moved to a competitors podcast app and no longer having issues. Only seemed to be an issue on my LG G4 as my GNote 2 never had this issue.
Great UI, poor performance I like it's UI and personalized recs a lot, but it's a battery and resource drag on Android. Not sure what's going on behind the scenes, but it's just too slow and resource intensive.

The best application to stream and download podcasts and radio on demand
