So glad I switched!

I actually have my own podcasts but didn’t listen to them much - partially because Apple Podcasts is so hard to use. Switched to Stitcher to listen to The Magnus Archives and I love it!

My favorite features are being able to change the playback speed (I listen to audiobooks at 1.5, podcasts seemed so slow) and the fact that it actually plays the next episode automatically instead of the previous episode (there’s a setting to order by oldest in Apple but it’s so hard to find, I keep forgetting where it is). Plus, instead of scrolling through 200+ episodes to find my place I can choose a season from the dropdown! Honestly these are such basic features, this is really doing the bare minimum, so maybe it’s silly to give five stars for it - but Apple Podcasts fails at them so by comparison Stitcher is way ahead.

Very good when it works

Yet again, had an issue where the solution is to uninstall/install. That does fix it, but please for the love of everything good, store which episodes I have in queue, so that I don’t have to redo this when the app crashes. And while you’re at it, please show the total length of all episodes in queue. Would be 4.5 stars rounded up to 5 if it were not entirely unsurprising that this happened. Would really like to see more QA before releases, and the above-mentioned storing of queue as a mitigation to the likelihood of crashing. (I had several hours of episodes from different shows in the queue, in anticipation of a long drive.)

PS - More broadly, why are the queue and download preferences (automatically download, keep X number of episodes downloaded) not stored in the account so they are not lost? The streaming TV services don’t require setting up all over again for a new screen. Not fun with Stitcher to set these up all over again when you have to uninstall/reinstall. And as long as I’m ranting, why does Stitcher only about 95% accurately track which shows I’ve listened to? (It mostly works, but definitely not completely).

Thanks for your feedback and we’re sorry the update isn't giving you a very good experience - we hear you and are working hard to make Stitcher the best podcast app it can be!

We are aware of the up next episode re-ordering issue and working on a fix now.

Thankyou for bringing up the issue of disappearing episodes. I've ticketed this so our developer team will look into it and see what's going on!

That's interesting about the casting and stopping issues. Could you email and let us know what device it was? We'd love to look into that and fix it, and losing your place in an episode is highly annoying!

We are committed to fixing these issues and making Stitcher an awesome slick app you want to use, so we really appreciate the time you've taken to give us this feedback!

Have used 11 yrs, 👍 throughout

I love ❤️ Stitcher. I discovered in 2011, have never once returned to another podcast app. Have repeatedly recommended to friends/family. On occasion bugs and stability issues have arisen, sometimes after iOS updates, but it’s been infrequent and each time they were easily addressed by reinstalling the app or an update was soon released to fix. Customer support (via E-Mail) has always been responsive, helpful. Years ago I suggested ‘Dark Mode’, to conserve battery power and make use of the app more pleasant in dark rooms. Was my only complaint in terms of features. It took several years but they eventually added. 👏👏👏

Thanks for the review and sticking with us for the long haul. We really appreciate having you as a listener! Sorry dark mode took so long :) Let the Support team know if you need anything. Thanks again!
