Car mode fail, still a fail 2 updates later
Car mode doesn't work now. Reinstalled same fail. App load pops up on infotainment screen and goes back to fm or what ever I was listening to before launching stitcher.
The 2 updates helped the connection problem, but this version still doesn't que my favorites. A show ends then asks to select another program, when there is more shows to go on my favorites. If you use with your auto infotainment system don't upgrade to 6. I just reverted to 5.4.3 and all is working.
Works sort of, notifications don't work right, getting "unlock phone" when it is unlocked; have to unplug lightning connector and plug back in. Doesn't auto play my favorites when I plug into my car, have to fiddle with infotainment. I use stitcher pretty much in my vehicle every time and that seems to be stitches down fall with updates since 5. Call up the pandora engineers for tips and tricks.
Offline mode not available offline?
Seriously how many freaking years is this app going to be out before y'all figure out how to let us listen to podcasts already downloaded when we have no connection?
It doesn't even let you access the app it just says stitcher can't connect. How flippin stupid is that?
And since the last update it won't even download episodes.
Great! Much better than Apple's Podcast App
The Apple Podcast app is completely unusable. This app not only works, but the interface is beautiful. I didn't have to transfer my podcasts to the app, it already carried over my existing favorites! I highly recommend this app!!
