Apple pod is better and free
I paid for stitcher premium to get access to archives of a specific pod- the pod is worth it. Otherwise, do not bother with Stitcher! Functionality is crap eg: search function only searches titles not content of pods? No history function to see what you’ve listened to? Episode playlist has no play all function and is fiddly? Cannot sort podcast lists by played/unplayed? I could go on. Far be it for me to cape for Apple but in this case the built in podcast app is actually better
Best Podcast Player
No lagging or missing episodes. If someone finds a podcast with one thousand episode, search the episode in the search field and tap play and subscribe. Stitcher will remember the sequence and start playing the episodes in chronological order.
For premium stuff you have to pay, with all the good work they are doing. But you don’t need to unless you want to, I have been a free subscriber for an year. No problem whatsoever. Even some places better than Apple Podcast.
Thank you Stitcher, keep up the good work.
Overall it’s my fave podcast app, I find it reasonably clear and intuitive to use, and will continue to be a premium subscriber. However, one niggle I have is that played podcasts don’t seem to be deleting themselves and it seems I have to manually delete my player downloads. This gets kinda irritating as I have to go to downloads-sort by unplayed and then select and delete all the played episodes. Kinda annoying.
That being said I actually like the stitcher app and the premium service so will continue with it.
