Review from Eric Tirey
Sucks now!! I used to really love Stitcher but all it does is buffer until i get frustrated. I uninstalled it 2 months ago and decided to give it another try and its the same results.
Loved this app since its origin I have been loving this app since it first came out which I believe was like 10 years by now. I cant recall it ever failing even though I listen sometimes for several hours a day. I laugh, learn, keep up w/ the most vital world and science while keeping all the squirrels in my head focussed and semi-quiet. As to show quality, sometimes a host will learn production on the fly. If their content is useful to you give the host a little bit of encouragement and you will find quality gets better with each episode
Buggy after update Used to be my go to and only podcast app. About two months ago it started acting up. Would play maybe 5 minutes of a podcast then start playing a different one. Also, can not play some podcasts and will just play a weird sound that sounds like someone bumping into a mic. So disappointed because I really like this but have to move on, not worth dealing with the bugs anymore.
Great app, minor improvements wanted There were some previous bugs that really sank my rating of Stitcher. Those seem to have been worked out. My only issue now is content sorting. There needs to be ways to more easily find content you like and filter out content you don't like.
New Episodes are not available I see in the description that there a a new episode or there was one over the last few days and when I look for it it's not there. I have been using this app for over 5 years and I am getting fed up with it. plus every afternoon it takes forever to listen to one pod cast. this app used to be awesome but now it sucks. if this doesn't change soon I'm going to sound cloud.
Fix the skipping. Seriously, fix it. Its the most annoying thing in the world. The suspense builds, the story is about to progress, and then the suspense builds again but with less mustard. Please fix the skipping while streaming. As the FAQ states, the problem is understood. The "work around" suggested works. Is it possible to select stream and have the episode start and download at the same time?
I Used to love Stitcher. But after months of struggling though glitches, I'm deleting it and changing to a better system. They really were one of the pioneers in this category of app, but they've not kept up the quality. Edit: Wow, pretty damn snarky response from Stitcher. Their app is the only one on my phone to glitch while I'm on reliable Wifi/4G. Have repeatedly ensured that Stitcher was only app affected. Fix your app. Don't attack your users.
