Review from Josh Beane
Ruined Ap is an unusable advertisement masquerading as a podcaster.
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 content, but one of the worst apps on the market. On the rare occasion it works, it's great. Unfortunately after every update it becomes unusable. It no longer downloads. Do yourself a favor and do not ever start using this app, it'll bring you nothing but frustration. If everything it's supposed to do worked it would be one of the best apps out there, but unfortunately it's practically garbage.
Update 11/21/17 Here I am again. Haven't been able to download any podcasts from this app in over a week. Add podcasts to my listen later and I immediately get a red dot that gives me no information other than I'm out of luck and I made the mistake of using this app. I'm going to finish listening to what few podcasts I have left in my queue and I'm deleting this garbage fire of an app. 10/2/17 Don't know what you guys did but the new update has made it so I'm no longer able to download podcasts for offline listening. The only reason I used the app is gone. Pretty big mess up.
The app is fine but it's nearly impossible to get customer service from them. They offered a 50% off code but you can't buy premium from the website and you can't use the code on Android. It just funnels you into 30 days free. Try finding someone you can message about this. Their website funnels you into FAQ's which is maze that leads to nowhere.
Stitcher has really good content. But the app is so terrible. Please spend some time redesigning and developing a modern app. I'm not going to pay for your content if this is the UI I have to deal with.
Overall It's my go to app for podcasts especially Earwolf ones but it is riddled with issues ranging from listen later episodes randomly dissapearing to issues even adding episodes to such playlists and premium is not all ad free, but I will say that for the price/year, it's hard to beat. Hopefully some of these issues will be rectified in the future.
They have the content that I want... but the Stitcher UI/UX is borderline unusable compared to other podcast apps. To be the only app that makes otherwise archived podcasts available they really make queuing episodes a chore.
Stitcher now downloads new episodes in your playlists and Listen Later by default, enabling a more consistent playback experience and easier listening when you don’t have an Internet connection. If you do not want to auto-download, simply go to Download Settings to turn this off or manage how much storage you allow Stitcher to use.
We’re hard at work on some big updates to Stitcher, stay tuned!
