Review from Andy Chu
Everything is right again. Stitcher was good before, but now it's much cleaner and easier to use. And with widgets back, there's nothing left to complain about.
March 6, 2013We just released an update that adds back the widget (didn't quite make it in to our big 3.0 version). You can get it in the Google Play Store at the link below. If you haven't already, would love for you to give us a rating while you're there upgrading as well! https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.stitcher.app
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.
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.
Excellent app. Get rid of "thumbs down" button! My "phone" has become a podcast playing device since discovering this app. The one change I wish for the most is to remove the thumbs-down button from the UI. It is next to the drop down arrow thing and very easy to accidentally press and it interrupts playback. If I don't like a podcast I will just remove it from my favorites! I wouldn't mind getting rid of both thumbs, please just assume I thumbs-up all the podcasts I listen to...
Easy to use, but annoying ads and sound issues One if the simplest to use. Ads are annoying. Biggest issue is the fact that the sound quality and levels are awful. Keeps playing when I turn off the car.
Unstable, screws up my whole phone Most unstable app I have. Screws up my GS6 so badly I have to soft reset when used with bluetooth. Won't load stations or songs. Won't shut down properly.
Great UI but lacking basic controls. Fast forward 30 should be easily accessible and using Bluetooth it is impossible to fast forward, only skips to next episode on steering wheel control. Disappointed because I really like the flow of the UI but I can't keep my phone in front of me to fast forward while driving.
+ Improved Stability
The best application to stream and download podcasts and radio on demand
