  • Latest Update Killed the App

    By #1 Seeker Skywarp
    Before the last update this app was king! Now it will not start the next newest podcast in date order as it used to. Just stops after it’s over or even worse starts working BACKWARDS? Weird glitch for app developers to not be able to fix right away after many complaints. If this does not get fixed in the next week I will be taking recommendations on a new podcast app. Been using Stitcher since 2013!
  • Can’t even register or login

    By OllieT1000
    I just downloaded this app because my favorite podcasts kept saying they could be found on here. Download it and I can’t even register or login. Please look into this.
  • No login

    By rkidwell
    App would not register my email/PW. It would not provide feedback on why. It said “Registering” and then just stopped. Backup to login and try to login got an “email or password incorrect”. I DON’T HAVE TIME FOR STUPID STUFF.
  • God awful app

    By SportsPhan8
    Won’t let me make a free account, freezes constantly, & restarts when you switch apps. Please fix all these technical problems.
  • Terrible

  • Doesn’t even work

    By HickNolman
    Trying out a bunch of different podcast apps trying to find one I love and this one wouldn’t even let me create an account. Just got a constant loading screen
  • Recently been super buggy

    By kebatronic
    I have been an avid Stitcher user since 2011 (it tells me I have 3200+ listening hours). Really loved all of the features for finding and organizing podcast into playlists. However recently I’ve been struggling with many issues. Some of which are play/pause button not working routinely, podcasts randomly not loading, controls from Bluetooth devices stopped working altogether, often not able to see or control playback from lock screen. None of these were problems up until about 2-3 months ago, so not sure if it’s Stitcher or iOS update related... I emailed Stitcher support about my issues, but never heard back. So regrettably today I jumped over to the Apple Podcasts app, which lacks a few features but so far has none of the annoyances I’ve had lately with Stitcher.
  • CarPlay stopped working

    By Sheepwithblogs
    After the latest update, the app no longer connects with CarPlay. The audio plays on the car stereo, but you need to unplug the phone to pause or rewind the podcast.
  • Constantly skips around.

    By Ben9619
    The app will constantly skip back 15 seconds, also will sometime say the servers are down when I know they are not. Disappointing considering this is a paid subscription.
  • Used to love Stitcher...

    The new update is trash and makes offline mode nearly impossible to use. Graphics are worse, navigation is worse. Would’ve stuck with the older version had I known.
