  • The Last Update didn’t work.

    By Bambusa20
    I can’t find older episodes of podcast (The Read to be exact).
  • Just a review of 8.1.11

    By Kymmz
    I love this app but this is just to let the developers know that since the new update a week ago, the “play next“ feature no longer works. I have a long list of podcasts that I want to play, but what happens is whatever is playing finishes, and then nothing follows on after it. The play next list is still there, but I cannot access it, I have to go to a new podcast and tap to start it, and then all my play nexts are there in plain sight, but it doesn’t matter, because none of them are going to play next. Please fix, and I’ll change this review.
  • Won’t play continuously

    By JoolsTAG1
    It randomly will or won’t play continuously, yes, I have it set to do so. Even deleted and reloaded it and changed settings back and forth. Just plays one of my favorites then stops. (I say randomly because this is a years’ long issue, on various devices, I’ve used this app since 2008 and sometimes go to other apps when this one irritates me too much, but this is my favorite one, please fix this :/)
  • Has best options for viewing, but missing a lot of shows

    By cdavida
    I like a lot about how this app works. I like being able to go through my shows, pick the episodes, and have them appear in a list of saved episodes. I can sync between my devices so that I don’t have to add them to multiple devices manually. I can even save stuff I have already listened to in an archive. The “My Front Page” is a useless mess, but the app gives me the option to start with my Favorites so that I don’t have to see it if I don’t want to. Oh, and I can add it to Sonos and play through Sonos. This app loses two stars, and maybe should lose more, for one reason. It’s missing several of the shows that I want in its directory, and there’s no way to add a feed URL that I can find. If they don’t have it in their database, I can’t add it. This means that I have to have another app just to hear some of the shows that they do not carry. It’s not just one or two missing, it’s several . . . Bioethics on Air, The Jennifer Fulwiler Show, Catholic Answers Focus, The Catholic Cafe, The Doctor is In (Ray Guerendi), and Stephen Herreid. With that many shows not available, it makes the app a whole lot less useful for me.
  • Horrible interface

    By DashQuark
    CarPlay skips to the next track, it only plays one cast in a row, it does not download until you press play, there is no sorting and the played items are all jumbled.
  • Taping twice to save an episode is a pain.

    By lxrchtt
    ^^ see subject.
  • Better than Apple Podcasts

    I’d like to be able to turn off suggestions. About 1 in 10 is something I actually want to listen to. There are some playback issues sometimes, where a podcast I’ve already finished will start again at a place I’d previously left it, even if I’ve finished it since I left it.
  • Reloading constantly

    By softball diva 
    This app drives me crazy. I listen to a ton of podcasts while driving and it is constantly reloading!! It loses my place and takes me back to the home page every time! I haven’t been able to listen to one episode successfully yet!
  • Love this App

    By #youguysarethenewnatesilver
    I have used Stitcher for years. The new design looks great. My biggest bother with the App is that in offline mode a banner comes up each time notifying me I am in offline mode before I can do anything. I am often in offline mode and without service. This warning can be a dangerous distraction to just skipping ahead.
  • Not every episode is downloading

    By popnlocke
    Man this app can't seem to get it right. I'm at work on my company's really fast wifi. Most of my podcast downloaf, except this particular one which is my favorite. No matter what, the app always says waiting to download, or will tell me downloading is complete which the episode has not downloaded. Getting tired of this
