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
The app works well and is a good way to listen to podcasts. This and SoundCloud are the two best podcast apps. However I can't recommend stitcher premium. I bought a month and it worked great. Ad free versions of my favorite podcast but after I upped my sub to a year shows which were shown as ad free with premium do not play with the ads. It is very disappointing as ad free listening is what I originally bought premium for. Do not recommend purchasing it.
The app makes it easy to listen to podcast and you can find almost all podcasts here. Why the low rating? because the is bad at the worst times. If you don't have Internet, the app can behaves horrible at times. Why do I need internet when I downloaded them to the app? sometimes a pop up comes saying something went wrong. If I log into the Southwest wifi that doesn't connect to the Internet, it deletes ALL of the downloaded shows!
I was double charged. I attempted to pay in the app and that didn't seem to go through, no confirmation anyway. Then I paid through Google. Both charges hit my account! They have not responded to my support inquiry... Not happy!
I'm done with Stitcher. I used to love it but it just keeps crashing and this message keeps popping up that it can't be reached at this time. It gives the option to try again but that does nothing. Not a helpful app when I'm in the middle of boring work and then I can't even depend on my podcast player to function right. Back to Pandora to listen to comedy until I find a better podcast player.
Podcasts take forever to buffer It will stop playing without any reason and then refuse to play that episode again and a dozen other bugs make this app almost unusable. You're better off downloading your podcasts than relying on this..
How is this player sustaining a near 4* rating!? A decent choice of podcasts is literally all that it has going for it. The player itself is an embarrassment. No ffwd and rwnd functionality while the app is taking forever to buffer an entire episode; podcasts abruptly stopping at any point or skipping to an unrelated podcast for seemingly no reason; ads that play mid podcast which stop podcast playback and will just repeat when trying to then restart playback; regular crashes; electronic payment issues; unnecessary permissions and obnoxious/intrusive advertising. Literally how much of a mess does a media player have to be before it gets a 1* on here?
