Updates always ruin my experience

I seem to be in the habit of resisting technology. Then accepting technology. Finally figuring it out. Using and enjoying said technology, and then the update comes. And it’s like I’m an infant again.
I have been using stitcher since my kids were babies. So that would be 13 years. It was always a nice easy platform for me to use. Even if I didn’t venture into the more special features. I was able to navigate the app. Find what I wanted and enjoy listening to all my favorite voices. I felt confident with stitcher.
And then the update came. Nothing is the same anymore. I don’t know what any of the symbols mean. I barely know how to back out of what I was attempting to press to do whatever feature I wanted but it never seems to be what I’m looking for anymore. Stitcher used to continuously play (unless sleep mode was activated!) a series for me. No it only seems to play one episode and I’m constantly having to scroll down to where I was to continue on. Very annoying. It doesn’t feel like stitcher anymore. It feels foreign and frankly it looks like it’s for toddlers. The graphics got all bubbly and round like some two year olds front page. I’m not sure I will continue to use it.

Overcast is way better

The only reason I keep this app is to access premium content from earwolf. I otherwise find it extremely frustrating to use and not intuitive. The playlists are not very customizable in my experience. I can’t erase episodes from the list only mark them as played so the lists end up being very long and unwieldy. If I listen to one second of a podcast, it then shows up below any unplayed episodes so I have to scroll down the list to see it. You cannot manually reorder episodes to your preferred play order or set priorities so your favorite shows always show up first in the list. I also downloaded old episodes of a show since the archives are only on stitcher but then had to manually scroll back through years of podcast episodes to find the ones I downloaded since they only show up by order of release and don’t prioritize downloaded episodes. Either that or manually search for them or take the time to mark hundreds of episodes as played in order for the episodes to show up on the top of the list. I don’t want to have to go to a separate downloaded episodes list when I’ve taken the time to make a playlist for a specific podcast. The downloaded episodes of that podcast should show up first. These are just a few reasons why I strongly prefer Overcast as my go to podcast app. If stitcher made some of these changes I at least wouldn’t be actively angry anytime I tried to listen to threedom.

Had high hopes, disappointed

I’m not particularly enchanted with Apple’s native podcast app so I decided to try Stitcher having heard it was far superior. I also wanted to check out a few Stitcher premium shows. I’m annoyed because apparently I can’t just pick up where I left off. I usually listen to podcasts before and after work and on breaks, so there will be a few hours in-between when I use the app. The play/pause button on the bottom goes away by the time I want to continue listening so I have to search for the episode all over again. It seems so fundamental to be able to easily go back to the latest played episode especially when I’m still in the middle of it.

Also, I stream just like with Apple’s podcaster, but this one quits on me way more easily if I lose service. It plays that creepy sound over and over (the sound of a finished record on a record player I think). Both the lack of functionality to keep streaming and the use of that sound effect are annoying. I’ll finish out my free trial but I’m reluctantly going back to Apple!
