Used to be my most used app Every time I open the app I get an error message. I tried restarting my phone and uninstalling then reinstalling the app and no luck.
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.
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.
Getting worse Over the past few months the app has performed progressively worse. Takes 30+ seconds to open, regularly freezes or crashes, laggy response time when hitting buttons, excessive buffering, etc. Also a resource hog. Considering seeking out a different podcast app, too bad because it used to be great.
Could use some touch ups but pretty smooth Stitcher's most frustrating aspect is finding a general description of a podcast. It also sometimes suffers from bugs and loses bookmarks. That said, it is a visually lovely and intuitive (other than my first issue) app. I've been pleased with the content and the personalization options.
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...
