Podcast Lovers Essential App!!!

My go to podcast app since 2011! Stream all your favorite podcast and create favorite podcast playlist and Stitcher updates every podcast with the newest episodes and in most podcast lets you stream prior podcast for each show and allows you to not have to download each podcast and just stream episodes through the app. It handles it all for you and you can access your sticher podcast playlists on other Apple devices or online. A must have app for me and makes my podcast listening experience seamless and easy and keeps it up to date at all times!! Sleek interface and they are adding new features frequently that improves the apps experience. Give it a try and you will be a lifetime user!!!

Has everything I want

I use this ever day for several hours to hear news updates from NPR, WSJ, CNET and others. I also listen to many feature length shows around my interests.
I like the listen later feature that stores programs. It keeps track of where I left off on multiple devices. I order the programs by preference so I can let it run through them at my desk as I work. There are ads but they are not overwhelming. I don't use the radio stations feature but I'm sure others do.
I much prefer this to iTunes and other apps I have used.

I use it a lot, UX cd be better

I do use Stitcher a lot. People use podcasts when they're walking, running, driving or bicycling and usability in these instances is terrible unless you like it getting into accidents. But besides that, even if you're just sitting in your armchair the usability is not nearly what it could be. As a specific example, the architecture discourages you from identifying other podcasts you might like but that's just one example of its rigidity. Given the incredible potential of Stitcher it's a disappointment. But it has no decent competition and will move forward and it's own slow slow time.
