  • Horrible broken CarPlay support

    At least half the time I try to start it from CarPlay it hangs and I have to force close the app to get it to work. Oddly the Mazda Bluetooth support is better, but won’t work while CarPlay is connected.
  • Bad first experience

    The app autoplays audio when you first open it, and that deeply offends me. Nothing should play audio or video that I didn’t expect. Uninstalled immediately.

    I was a previous subscriber several years ago and then decided to become a premium subscriber again. Unfortunately, stitcher has decided to insert advertisements in the middle of podcasts and then claim that they will do an investigation and take your $35 as a premium subscriber. So much for a “premium” subscription. I’m still trying to get my money back but honestly I would run as far away from this app as possible. I began using the overcast app and I would recommend this to other listeners.
  • Not my choice

    I only use this app because my car has built in support for it and no CarPlay (thanks MINI). It works ok once loaded in my car but the IOS interface is horrid. Stitcher seems more focused on switching me to the paid version and forcing their selections than it is on making my favorites easy to find and update.

    Why is this show playing when I launch? I don’t subscribe to it. Can’t seem to get rid of it. I would enjoying hearing my selection upon launch under favorites. Please fix this problem. I don’t want to hear this podcast. I was a former premium member and gave up on the brokenness of this app free or paid. I’m at the point of deleting it. Someone need to pay attention to the complaints and fix the app. That is if you want premium customers.
  • Good content, terrible app

    I am trying Stitcher Plus for the content I can’t access other places. The content that is only available here is fantastic so for that reason alone - yes I may continue to use it. But the app is frustrating, buggy, and not intuitive. I have used and liked numerous podcast apps. This is one of the worst ones I’ve used yet. Adding shows to lists is tedious and apparently impossible sometimes (I’ve been trying for days to add shows to a new list I created but they only go to the apps default “favorite“ list). The home screen is just advertising and not what I expect from a paid app. They probably view it as showcasing great content but let’s be honest - it’s advertising, it’s ugly, hard to sort thru, and most importantly it adds more steps/clicks to the actual reason I have the app- listening to shows I want to listen to. The good: exclusive content, cool feature of custom backwards & forwards times (ie default is rewind 15s, fast forward 30s). The bads: ugh. The above and basically too many to list. Also, none of the extension pieces work properly: control from Apple Watch & CarPlay are at best intermittent.
  • Fix the bug!!!

    This stupid app freezes then closes out EVERY time I open it. It’s also a horrible user interface. I’ve deleted and re-downloaded the app several times. Still crashes. Why did I pay for this service???

    I downloaded this app and had to remove it from my phone. It would not type the correct words and I couldn’t access other apps.
  • Not user friendly at all

    This app is terrible. You can’t just pick a podcast you want and listen to episodes. It’s a confusing app. Why not just make this app easy to use?
  • I only have one problem

    This is the perfect podcast app. It has eveyshow I could ever want and has a great interface and is so easy to use there is only one minor problem I have. When you select an individual episode and the menu comes up to download it the “download episode button” and “remove show from button” are right next to each other in a level of font that always leaves me deleting the show and having to find it in the search bar again. It is a mi or inconvenience but it is the only problem I’ve ever had.
