Ratings and Reviews
Best Podcast Player
No lagging or missing episodes. If someone finds a podcast with one thousand episode, search the episode in the search field and tap play and subscribe. Stitcher will remember the sequence and start playing the episodes in chronological order.
For premium stuff you have to pay, with all the good work they are doing. But you don’t need to unless you want to, I have been a free subscriber for an year. No problem whatsoever. Even some places better than Apple Podcast.
Thank you Stitcher, keep up the good work.
Infuriating: can't play from old to new
I want to listen to podcasts in the order they were made. I want to hear in-jokes and fun experiences at their inception, before I hear references to them. I want to be able to listen at all to podcasts that tell a story. I want to follow along with the lives of artists as they unfold. I don't want to listen to anything in reverse order. Is that too much to ask?
For stitcher, yes. The only way to play episodes in order is to scroll all the way down to the first episode, pressing 'load more' as you go. I recently found a new podcast that has 900 episodes. It would probably take about 5 minutes to scroll all the way through.
I’ve tried so hard to make stitcher work but it’s just not good. If you want stitcher premium content you’re better off finding the unofficial RSS feeds and importing them through another app like overcast.
It’s confusing and unintuitive. Even the premium content is poorly listed - not showing who the podcast guests are unless it’s in the title. Not to mention that the app is buggy. Not deleting some episodes after they’ve been played or randomly freezing upon return to the app.
Generally disappointing and there is no reason to put up with it. Wouldn’t go back to using stitcher unless there was a major overhaul.
