• Wanna listen to your episodes in a particular order? Sort by 'Custom' and then drag to rearrange (finally, amirite?)
• Swipe to open and close modal views like the player and episode info view (slick!)
• Audio warbling fix (no more robot-music)
• A bunch of UI improvements and bug fixes
• Auto Play Toggle (aka, the artist formerly known as Continuous Playback)
• Filter By Year on show pages (great for listening to those archives)
• New Episode badges on the Shows grid (see what shows have new episodes)
• Filter on Likes and Downloads (clean out that Likes list)
• Improved Episode Cells with 2 line titles (no more ellipses!)

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.
Version 10 stinks!
While Ive been using and I guess enjoying Stitcher as a podcast player for many years, this recent “upgrade” to Stitcher 10 stinks! The layout is different, the default settings seem to be different (no longer plays podcasts in a row, I have to open the app after one ends to find the next one I want to play and manually start it), I found my “up next” list once but I cant find it again to get a selection of podcasts lined up to play (not tjat auto play away), and to add insult to injury, the icons are now huge and take up so much space in any list that I cant see episode titles, Im just seeing the podcast icon, and the name of the podcast (which is stupid, because I already have the icon so I know which is which) and then I only get a few letters into the actual episode title... trying to listen to “episode 12, part 1” and then “episode 12, part 2” is a disaster if you have more than one podcast you listen to because the “part 1/2” gets cut off. I know Im not always excited about change, but after a few weeks this update is still every bit as annoying as it was that first day. Please, Stitcher, re-release Stitcher 9!
