Have been using this app for a while now but recently noticed it starting to fail. Stops playing mid way through an episode when I’m not even using my phone. Doesn’t show up on my phone that I’m using the app so doesn’t work with shortcuts on iPhone. Slow loading time

Constant issues

Out of all the podcast apps I’ve used Stitcher has most consistently giving me issues.
I’ve received frequent app crashes, episode disconnections, and slow load times.
All of this on top of a clunky UI that has to be re navigated every time one of these issues occurs, which is typically multiple times in a 1 hour podcast.
I used to have worse issues with old episode ads specifically causing crashes every time they played also, but as I broke through the archive it seemed to avoid that issue.
If it wasn’t for exclusive content I wouldn’t of downloaded this app in the first place, and because of all these issues I am just disregarding these podcasts completely and hope they move to a functioning app in the future.

Convoluted UI

Have been using Stitcher for years but I’m now uninstalling it. Tired of the overly complicated app design that splits the same podcasts up into 4-5 different menus. Makes trying to find a podcast very difficult.

Downloaded eps also don’t show up in the Favorite tab, eps are listed from old to new every time I open the app, gives error messages when opening offline (manually choosing offline mode is RIDICULOUS), it’s like the devs don’t actually use this app. How hard is it just to start the app with a list of subscribed podcasts?
