With the update there is now a limit on "Saved Episodes" that I didn't ever notice with the listen later setting. I wish that it showed the number of episodes I have listened to like the Apple App does. Other than that it's an amazing app and I use it every single day to get my True Crime fix!
Needs numbered episodes! Somehow this latest update made this app even worse than it already was. Constant issues with this app. It keeps downloading episodes I don't care about anymore. It looks nicer but the functionality is the worst of any podcast app I own. Search function only displays a few episodes & is extremely hard to find the one I want.
Just finished my year subscription to Stitcher Premium and I feel cheated. I got the subscription because of all the comedy albums that were available. I binged on them for the first 2 months until I listened to everyone I wanted to. Over the year I saw maybe 10-20 new albums added. I went throught them on the last day of my subscription and found 1 new one to listen to. The next day, after my year was up, the comedy album list more than doubled! So basically, Stitcher will block new content from you, until your subscription runs out. Then they can get you to renew to get the "new content". Don't waste your money!
This app has all the functions I need, though it can take a bit to learn how to navigate the weird layout. I really wish this app would let me set an alarm using a podcast. That'd blow me out of the water!
I'll need to explore the new design, but it still has a problem that's always bothered me: I can't turn it off without a force stop. This eliminates the ability to readily start where I left off the next time I open it. If I don't, it keeps using my battery. I appreciate the continual improvements (I've been using it for many years, and it's gotten way better), but I wish this issue was addressed.
Latest update completely broke the most important feature: remembering where you left off in a podcast. Before, I could leave a podcast for hours or days and days, restart my phone in between, and Stitcher would let me pick up right where I left off. Now? Starts right at the beginning again. 1/5 until this gets fixed.
