  • Was great before the redesign

    By skimtn
    I’ve been using Stitcher daily for years but I am now looking for a new podcast option since the redesign. I agree with other reviewers that this new version is unbelievably buggy. I’ve experienced extreme amounts of latency issues such as the app frequently freezing after it’s been opened and then needing to be forced closed and reopened to work. The roll out of this new version is very disappointing as I’ve spent years using this app and now feel it’s become inoperable. Also, I hate the new app icon, it’s really ugly and I really don’t like having it on my home screen
  • The new redesign is horrible

    By poetanarchy
    The new redesign is cumbersome, counterintuitive and just plain ugly. It’s much harder to navigate and is buggy as hell. Would love an option to have something more similar to the old design. This junk is nearly enough to make me stop using stitcher altogether.
  • Bad update

    By xbexyleighx
    I loved this app and never had a problem until this update. It skips and shuts down every episode and now... this morning it won’t play at all.
  • New update is buggy as hell...

    By newbatgirl
    The new design that came with the latest update was not fully baked. I keep trying to delete played episodes from my saved list and they keep reappearing! How much of my phone’s storage space is malfunctioning redesign taking up? I was considering upgrading to premium before the redesign but now I’m going to wait. Why pay more for a buggier app?
  • Redesign needs a redesign

    By daddyuwarbash8
    Yikes, I don’t often review apps, but I must say this new design feels like it harkens back to iOS 6. Definitely missed the mark.
  • Deleted episodes keep reappearing

    By tell me about the improvements
    I’m a fan of the app. I’m not sure yet what added value the updated format provides. Please give us an overview. I’ve had some trouble deleting episodes I no longer want in my saved episodes page. When I remove the “save” X it keeps popping back up. Clicking on edit and then remove seems to work. Not sure which place to go to see the newly added episodes - home page? Favorite shows? They seem to be in a different order and several do not show up in one or the other.
  • Good — But is like an all time thing for stats

    By Linsenman
    The only thing that keeps this from being a 5 star for me is the limited listening stat tracking. I’d love to see what all of the statistics are, not just top five for two weeks and 90 days. Wouldn’t be hard to implement I don’t think and yet no podcasts app seems to have it.
  • Nice update.

    By HxC4Christ
    I’ve been using stitcher since 2015, and I am very impressed with the new update. It’s smooth, the filtering is a lot more effective, and the search function is much easier to use now. Thank you!
  • Bug

    By Newt23456
    New interface is a good idea but the order of my favorite playlist keeps switching. I want the most recent on top and no matter how many times I sort it like that I flips to something else. Incredibly frustrating. Please fix in next update
  • New interface is a complete failure

    By Unclemonte
    It was barely tolerable before. I know, let’s make it worse! What kind of knob approved this redesign?
