What's New in Version 7.1.9
Stitcher now downloads new episodes in your playlists and Listen Later by default, enabling a more consistent playback experience and easier listening when you don't have an internet connection. If you do not want to auto download, simply go to download settings to turn this off or manage how much storage you allow Stitcher to use.
We've also fixed a few bugs with background downloading and Facebook sign in. We're hard at work on some big updates to Stitcher, stay tuned!
The app is horrible
Well, I spent a while typing out a thorough review, but because the name I used was already taken it erased my review and asked me to "try again". I will be quicker this time: it is absolute garbage. I subscribed to premium because it is the only way to access the older episodes of my favorite podcast. I sincerely wish they'd make their backlog available through another option. The app is unintuitive, clunky, and slow. They have made it incredibly difficult to access older podcast episodes, seemingly for no reason. I would go into detail but I already did and it got deleted so suffice it to say that your best bet is to use another app. The podcast app that is included with iOS it's leaps and bounds better than this one.
Stitcher never opens !!!Fixed!!!
Updated: I tried restarting my phone and that didn’t work. Deleting the app and reloading the app was the answer! So glad to have my favorite app back and running again.
Previous: This is my favorite app for podcast listening. I have not been able to get in it for a couple weeks. This happens periodically with an iOS update but is usually a day or sometimes 2 days.
Is it ever going to work for iOS 11?
Space hog, good Discovery of new podcasts
I was happy with how I was able to discover new podcasts based on what I was subscribed to.
Main reason I deleted it was because I realized it was taking up 3GB on my phone with possible podcast downloads and no clear way to delete the data. I thought it didn't download anything automatically, which is why I made the switch to stitcher in the first place, but I guess it does now. So back to the podcast app for me!
