    A Google User Published date: January 14, 2018

    Stitcher is not working YET again. Nothing plays. Always displaying "there seems to be an error playing content". Stopped in the middle of one podcast; now plays none of them. No problems listening to the same podcasts on their own websites. Tried rebooting the phone. Stitcher knows exactly why it's not working. The generic, totally information free error message (Yes. It's obvious there's a problem.) is very annoying. This is simply lazy, bad programming. The app should say exact why it is failing and indicate what is being done about it. Full Review

    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. Full Review

    After having used the iOS version for the past while I find this Android one underwhelming and lacking - it does the job but it's very basic. I'd like to see the Listening Stats and Recommendations brought over in future updates. Full Review

    The phone app is okay. But the desktop interface is terrible. When an episode ends, there is no next episode button. You have to go back in the browser and scroll down to whatever episode you want. Often you have to click 'load more episodes' over and over until you get to the correct episode. There is no 30 second fast forward or rewind button. Totally not user friendly at all. Perhaps consider streamlining the process a bit. These are the reasons that I cancelled my premium subscription.

    Has all the podcasts I love to listen to. But if you lose network connection for any reason, when it reconnects the app just refuses to play your podcast. Will not try to re buffer or nothing. Seriously frustrated with this Full Review

    As a stitcher premium member I'd like to see the major random crashing problems fixed, also podcasts never resume to the time the player says, they always restart. I'd also like to see the first 5 seasons of Wiretap added to the premium service along with the others Full Review

    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. Full Review

    Was 5 Star.. now 1 star.. I'm a premium member listening to backlog of Comedy Bang Bang and now I can't find the shows anywhere like they have been deleted or I am not a premium member. Shocking. Have messaged them using the help button but they have not even responded to me. Shocking. Full Review

    It's almost a good app. It does a good job of having shows up to date but it's lacking very basic functions like playing shows in chronological order or downloading multiple episodes at once. It's fine if you want to choose and find one episode at a time but if you want to play multiple then you must painstakingly download individual episodes and put them in the correct sequence.

    Daniel Hap Published date: December 1, 2017

    Used to work, haven't been able to play a single podcast in 7 days, no update available. Poor UI. Too many dead links to nonexistent podcasts. I'll go back to Google Play, which isn't saying much. Full Review

    JJ Jones Published date: January 11, 2018

    After a verbiage ad I installed this app. I now enjoy listening to podcasts for work and pleasure. Quite easy to use. Subscription is not too expensive. I like talk over music so I listen throughout the day. At this posting, I don't understand why the ratings score is so low...Well I read the latest reviews and I haven't experienced any of those problems with the Android version. Hey dev guys fix this broken stuff. You could have an awesome app here!!! Full Review

    Haleigh Grewe Published date: January 15, 2018

    It's not very well organized for starting to listen to a podcast that already exists which you want to begin at first episode. Also, the app regularly stops playing once my phone screen locks. I imagine this is somehow related to the power settings of my phone but stitcher is the only app that does this for me. Used stitcher for awhile but fed up now with it constantly stopping so I'm uninstalling Full Review

    Matt Holman Published date: January 8, 2018

    Switched to stitcher to get the Howl stuff bc the Howl app was terrible. Came from the Pocket Casts app. Love the additional content and the integration with my car. Hate pretty much everything else. I don't understand why I can only download new episode or only download old episodes to my listen later playlist. Pocket casts just let me build playlists of any epsodes I wanted of any of the podcasts I subscribed to. It's incredibly frustrating and has me considering canceling my subscription Full Review

    I would like it a lot better if I was able to save older episodes of shows into different playlists. If there is a away to do that I wouldn't know because the UI is clunky and overly complicated. Full Review

    Sean Morris Published date: January 11, 2018

    Limited functionality in a shiny package. With a barely functional search, minimal adjustable settings, and the most frustrating download and playlist operations I could imagine, I'm not sure how this continues to exist. I'm pretty sure it's only reason to exist is so Earwolf can make you pay to listen to their back catalog. That potential is the only reason I chose this app, and I have to say it's not nearly worth it. I'd love to listen to those things, but using this app is enough suffering without also torturing my wallet. Full Review

    Shawn Gary Published date: November 25, 2017

    Great content, Poor organization. I purchased premium at half off for Earwolf content, but Podcast Addict is so much better of an app it's silly. This app is pretty, but organizing pod subs, setting eps new to old vs. old to new, and playlists of mixed episodes is so clunky. Cancelling my subscription tomorrow. Full Review

    This app is so frustrating. It's great when it works properly, but 8 times out of 10, it restarts the podcast that you were in the middle of when you get back in the car, even if I pause it before shutting off the car. Sooooo annoying. Time to find a new app. Full Review

    After listening to the first season of a podcast it now gets hooked on the add infront of all others. Simply replays nothing but the last few seconds of the add. Nothing else. Complete waste of time. Don't get excited about it because it will let you down massively. Full Review

    Published date: November 19, 2017

    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. Full Review

    Maciej K Published date: December 14, 2017

    Offline listening has really deteriorated since last update. A podcast will be downloaded, but when internet is not available it won't play. Need to turn off WiFi for offline mode to work properly. Full Review

    Matthew Biddinger Published date: November 20, 2017

    There are TONS of podcasts to listen to, which is this app's only redeeming quality. The UI is awful, it's cumbersome, awkward and just plain hard to use. Also, the "Listen Later" wording should be changed to "download", it just makes more sense. Basically this app needs to take what Podcasts Addict does and do the same thing. Full Review

    Matt Yamasaki Published date: January 11, 2018

    App is just unreliable. Podcasts often aren't posted as they become available on other platforms. Sometimes it will take a day or more for new episodes to be posted on Stitcher and I will end up listening on a web player or another app. Full Review

    The Finisher Published date: December 6, 2017

    I just want it to play Todd and Tyler seamlessly as they put them out. Your app is terribly confusing to use. It never refreshes in a timely fashion or on command. I'm going to use the browser based player now. Full Review

    Completely useless unless you are always connected to WiFi. Not sure what changed? Had this on a previous device and it worked fine. No iPod or iPhone, but good enough. Don't bother with this one. Full Review

    Go Ve Published date: January 11, 2018

    1/11/2018 update - have tried other podcast apps in the past 4+ years, but this is the only one that meets my critical needs. The widget i can add on to the home screen, with the 30 second ffwd and rewind buttons is super awesome function. None of the other podcast apps have that feature based on my limited search. 3/16/2016 update => still 4+ stars - great selection of podcasts and decent features! Feb2015 update => If you can deal with some cranky UI and connectivity issues, this is a great app. Been listening for more than a year DAILY since oct 2013. Perfect 4 stars. Full Review

    —this app sucks so bad —really annoying when the app closes for no reason at all while playing a podcast —hate the new feature that wants to download EVERY PODCAST. Yeah I disabled that immediately, not a good feature if you subscribe to dozens of podcasts —Can't rate and review podcasts on the app, which sucks —STOP BUGGING ME ABOUT STITCHER PREMIUM Full Review

    Good app except two bugs (lack of important features): it doesn't have control panel on the notification bar when a podcast is playing; and it doesn't have a way within app to report bugs or request features, so I have to come here to write a review and hope the developers would see and respond.

    Paul French Published date: January 2, 2018

    Stitcher Premium has great content but they would need to pay me to use this clunky app. I would rather they team up with many popular podcast apps like iTunes or PocketCasts and allow us to listen and browse their premium content from 3rd party apps if subscribed to their premium. Full Review

    Doug H. Published date: November 25, 2017

    Spotify adding podcasts is going to deal a sizable blow to Stitcher's usefulness for me. While it functions pretty well, there's quite a few bugs within Android Auto UX that drive me crazy. The biggest one being my podcasts starting over from the beginning instead of picking up where I left off when I'm halfway through them already. Other notable shortcomings include the inability to listen to multiple episodes of a single podcast easily, frequent "no internet connection" errors, and poor voice command function. Once Spotify adds their playlist features to the AA app, I'll be done with Stitcher. Full Review

    Justin Levay Published date: November 21, 2017

    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. Full Review

    When returning to a podcast that I was previously listening to and after hitting play, nothing happens. I consistently have to force stop the app in order to resume playing the podcast. This has been consistent for the past few updates. Please let me know if you need more info to troubleshoot. Full Review

    Max Lyon Published date: November 22, 2017

    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. Full Review

    Anthony Keeley Published date: December 1, 2017

    Poorly executed, dated podcast app. This app is redundant. App has annoying suggestions you can't turn off, without which you can't tell when new episodes of your followed podcasts come out. Offline download always says it failed, even over WiFi. I used to listen to This American Life every week from 2011 on, but after buying an Android phone last year, I pretty much stopped because Stitcher is my only option. I would never use this app otherwise. Full Review
