Customer Reviews

Used to be my favorite - now skips too much

This was, bar none, my favorite app. Lately, though, it skips around all the time, whether it's a short podcast or a long one. One second it will be playing fine, then it will jump back 10 seconds, then it will jump forward 15, and then back another 10, and then forward another bit. It leaves me confused, frustrated, and wondering what parts of the podcasts I've missed.

If they fix this, this is the best podcast app I've used and I'd recommend it. Until then, avoid it.

Too many ads, frequently freezes

Along with the ads that are already in the podcast, Stitcher puts a high-volume 30 second ad in front of every podcast you listen to. The same ad, for months. Additionally it frequently freezes and loses your place in the podcast if you switch from Stitcher to anything else on your phone.

Newest version added annoying pop-ups 🙄

I literally use Stitcher every day, several times a day. I usually love it...but this new update included a pop-up ad asking (every single f'ing day!) if I want to upgrade to a premium membership. Whoever came up with the idea to spam the most loyal Stitcher users daily with a pop-up question that requires a Yes/No response should be disciplined and/or terminated. Seriously. Why try to be annoying? 🙄
