  • Buggy

    By El Gordo Diablo
    Long time user and am going to have to switch because it skips a lot with headphones in (didn’t have the same problem when I tried the headphones on another app). It can also be a little late updating some podcasts.

  • Used to be great, now it’s ads ads ads

    By Dfnaglhamm
    I’ve been using Stitcher as my main podcast app for over 5 years, and have recommended it to friends for a long time. However, in the past few months it has taken a huge turn for the worse. It now plays an ad every time I pause an episode. Also, and I’m not sure if this is an iphone issue or a Stitcher issue, but I have to relaunch the app most time I pause, even if it’s for a couple seconds and I haven’t opened any other apps. Very frustrating and has me looking for other podcasting options.
  • Weird

    By whatever4333
    I like the variety, but the stupid app plays a completely random podcast that I don’t want to listen to, right after the episode I was listening to, instead of playing the next episode of the podcast I was listening to. Example: I’m listening to Serial and at the end of the episode, Uncover automatically plays so I have to stop what I’m doing, close that episode and then go back to Serial. Uncover isn’t even on my episode playlist, or favorites or anything. Very frustrating.
  • Great app but one major flaw

    By POD919
    Fantastic app has the best UI and love organization and ability to search episodes. One major flaw though, the shows aren’t updated as fast as other apps. Comparing to the Apple podcast app about 40-45% of the shows are put on 3-4 hours after they appear on the standard app. As a stitcher premium member it’s insane to me that I’m paying to get the podcast later. I’ve slowly started listen to more and more pods on the Apple app and will probably switch completely soon.
  • Way Too Many Commercials

    By A-aaron1
    This was decent till recently, I switched back to my old podcast app recently. Stitcher started running excessive, repetitive, mind numbing commercials. I listen to podcast while driving so having to take my attention off the road to manually skip through their commercial interruptions is too much.
  • Meh

    By Jo Pooper
    Perhaps a tutorial online? I can appreciate the new take on a podcast player (like everyone else else), but why do I have to “figure it out?”
  • Fail

    By Ladylonglocks
    For the second time in a month I have lost all but five of my hundreds of podcasts, rendering the app absolutely useless. This is getting really old. Fix it.
  • Needs work

    By from redding with love
    I enjoy this app but on three separate occasions the app has glitches and failed to recognize my premium subscription, preventing me from accessing content which is very frustrating when I have been billed for the subscription. Please fix these problems
  • Used to love it

    By willyd11
    Used to really like this app. New update makes you listen to a commercial almost every time you pause a podcast. A little excessive
