  • Can’t Login

    By Bambusa20
    When I open the app it tells me I need to login to Facebook again to get to my account, which is fine, but then that prompt pops up again. After that when the screen for Facebook login comes up it crashes. I miss my podcast please if this soon. Quick Update- I just hit cancel on all the prompts to login and I was able to get into the app and I was still logged in, please fix soon so I don’t have to get through several prompts just to use the app.
  • New Update incredibly buggy

    By NFHoward
    I’ve used stitcher for a few years a logged a few hundred hours, overall it was pretty solid. However lately there have been a ton of bugs. After the newest update the app is constantly giving me an error regarding signing in through Facebook, which I do not do, and keep popping up on my screen. Also new episodes have not been updating/downloading and I have to go looking for them in the app. Really not the best podcast app right now, but with some more bug fixing could be great.
  • Garbage

    By TheRealTravelDude
    Hope you didn’t want to actually play a podcast. Downloaded an episode twice and tried to stream but it will not play. That ‘play’ button? Absolutely useless. I wish I could say this was an anomaly but it happens 90% of the time.
  • Annoying

    By sam schilling
    Why they have the front page thing always open up is so annoying. Makes so many steps to playing a podcast.
  • UI is buggy and unintuitive

    By woodhamiam
    App will lose my place mid podcast, sometimes the lock screen buttons don’t work, can’t skip commercials in free podcasts..., side nav is slow to use, and whyyy do I want a woman saying “resuming episode” every time I hit play?? I like being able to group podcasts into categories, but there’s no easy way to switch from the episode I was listening to in my comedy list to the episode I was listening to in my history list. Recommendations are pretty wack... “Because you like Threedom: Bible Study Ephesians 4” unless that’s some hilarious but inconvenient aukerman metadata trolling
  • Going back to Apple

    By Jen 13244
    I am on a road trip with spotty cell service so I downloaded a bunch of episodes so I would have them. When I went to listen to them, they were all gone. I thought I screwed up so I re-downloaded them and this time watched the download. Went to listen to the and poof they were gone yet again. Back to Apple Podcast. At least they don’t delete downloads that haven’t been listened too
  • Needs work

    By imagine177
    The app is unpleasant to navigate, not only is there a bizarre combination of swipes and clicks to get around but the buttons are just a shade different from the background and are too easily over looked. Not only do you have to work at finding the content you want, the mechanics of the app are equally frustrating. Often the podcast I’m listening to will suddenly stop and say it’s no longer available. Now this could be a third party issue (ie soundcloud) but the one that really bugs me is even tho I’ve set my playback preference to play oldest to newest it refuses to do so and will always play the next oldest. Why?!
  • Good 'tent, not great execution

    By ShaneIsTaken
    Love it because it's the only way I know of to hear all Teacher's Lounge episodes. However, you know how every podcast uses episode numbers? Not Stitcher! I have to Google the episode I want to listen to and find its release date and then go back to Stitcher. Also, you have to play an episode and then tap the info button if you want to see who is on the episode and it's not always listed. Howl did a better job with UI than Stitcher. I shouldn't have to open the iPhone podcast app to see who I'm listening to on Stitcher. "We're normal now."
  • Why speed up the audio?

    By Jayvonne
    I was dedicated until you sped up the audio on my favorite podcasts to the point of destruction. I was forced to go to ITunes for my news. They answered me and they were right. All is well and I'm back with Stitcher. Thank you, developers.
  • no.

    By Erin Anderson
    - confusing interface with wayyyy too many options for how to access your podcasts and episodes - too much unnecessary content being plugged; i just want to see what my favorites or new eps are, and can browse elsewhere if i choose - bizarre that you can’t remove a download from an episode “currently playing” ... which means you literally have to start a new one to take this action - most insanely, i can’t open the app if i have no service, even if i have previously downloaded episodes. which means i can’t use the app if i’m on the subway and hadn’t opened the app prior to going underground. seriously? would absolutely never use this if the service didn’t have two podcasts i listen to that aren’t available elsewhere.
