Ratings and Reviews
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
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?
My pick of the podcasters
It’s the best for finding new podcasts, and the aesthetics have improved lately.
I don’t think that “Settings” is an intuitive place for the Sleep Timer. It would be better placed in a more prominent area.
Downloads take a long time.
