One of the better podcasts apps but has one major annoying flaw

Seems to be one of the better podcast apps, although for some reason it appears to be impossible to remove podcasts - Unsubscribing from a show removes it temporarily but only until the app is restarted or the data is refreshed, after which it reappears, which is incredibly annoying as the result is that you cannot get rid of unwanted shows.

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.

Needs 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.
