Customer Reviews

As bad as an app can be - then even worse - you hear them ‘sirenes’?

Like most users, I suspect, I only have this app and pay for the ‘premium’ service because it’s the only legit way to access certain content.

The new update has made it look a bit better, but it still crashes and freezes. Older content is not organised by year so you have to scroll and scroll and scroll and scroll to find old episodes. The ‘Listen later’ menu has been removed. So there is no obvious place to find downloaded episodes. Overall the navigation is fiddly and complicated.

Hard to believe that great content is trapped behind the walls of such a terrible app.

** Update. It gets worse. If you pause a podcast, use a different app, and go back, the episode goes back to the start. If you download an episode but don’t listen to it immediately, the app deletes it. So you can’t download anything for offline listening.


I’ve tried so hard to like this service; after many comparisons there’s still bits I prefer on stitcher than rival podcast apps.


I fell for the black Friday deal: half price and 2 months free! Bargain! Only received email yesterday saying there was an error and it’s only 1 month free . . . ok.

Now it’s deleting my podcasts, what is the point in a podcast app that won’t remember your downloads?! Pointless.

Thankfully I cancelled before my trial ends and if I am charged I will really be angry.

Just wish this app wasn’t so crap. But from what I’m reading maybe it’s not just the app . . . .

Bad app.

This feature Poor and generally broken app holds some of my favourite content hostage
