User reviews of Stitcher Radio for Podcasts
FREQUENTLY does not respond to user input. Had to force stop several times. This app needs some work.
Jul 7, 2012
As of 03/20/2012, it's working again on AT&T Samsung Captivate.

VERY slow and unresponsive and hung at one stage until exited and re-entered, was hoping to have auto-download options for "podcasts" but didn't look hopeful after seeing settings and can't be bothered as very slow in any case.

Installed a few weeks ago and just recently updated. This is the best PODCAST player I've used. If nothing else, just for remembering where I was on every podcast I exited early. Host of other options as well. Great product.

Recent update really made this app great. Not crashes anymore when opening another app

Stops & goes back to the beginning. This keeps reverting to the beginning. When I'm listening to something almost 2 hours long I don't want to have to restart over & over. Where is the fast forward control?! Or why can't it pick up where it left off? It just stops by itself & restarts.

Amazing app has gotten worse and worse Stitcher used to be great. It almost singlehandedly dominated my app usage. However, some time ago an error was introduced that causes podcasts on my Favorites to repeat themselves if they were interrupted for any reason - sms or email notifications, for instance. Now, it's impossible to get through my Favorites playlist because every podcast repeats and is marked "un-finished" . This means I can't just hit play - playback requires regular intervention. Time to find another app.

Amazing and buggy! Favorite App! I have used this app for hours every day for several years now. Lately it has been having problems. It doesn't always work with the pause button on my Bluetooth headphones. The lock screen art doesn't always work either and neither does the notification widget. It will forget where you are if you take a call. These are things that used to work perfectly. It also needs Chromecast support. Please fix!

Update FAIL I had no major issues with this app till the 3.3.5 update. Now, it doesn't play consistently, seems to skip around, doesn't play the next podcast but just stops and no longer works right on my car bluetooth. Instead it plays in high speed even after I've disconnected the bluetooth until I reboot my phone AFTER disconnecting. That means I can't use the bluetooth in my car at all if I'm also using stitcher. THAT is an epic fail. I've emailed support twice and not received a response.

Good except for glitches and freeze issues. I initially rated this app 5 stars, but the lag and freeze issues make me want to delete the app. It's also very slow to open, and when you return to the app from another screen/app. I'll be switching to another podcast app very soon.
