While the app is a great place to house your favorite podcasts, the quality of the app has slowly declined. My podcasts will constantly stop playing in the middle of the episode. Constantly sounds like an exaggeration, but in order to get through an episode I have experienced 9 pauses from the app that require me to reboot it and try again. Very frustrating!

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.

In the past, I would have easily given Stitcheh five stars for features, content and performance. Unfortunately, the app glitches constantly on my new Pixel 7 Pro phone. The player works fine for 8-10 minutes but then the sound begins stuttering, blanking out for a second or two so it becomes unlistenable. Pausing and restarting the playback fixes it but the same issue starts all over again 8-10 minutes later. Hoping this will be addressed in a future update.
