CNET Editors' review
Stitcher Radio is a sleekly designed, fun-to-use app that, despite its high production value, only offers a handful of advancements over other apps in the category. This is not a bad thing, however. Podcast apps, in general, are notoriously buggy and unresponsive while Stitcher Radio is fast, responsive, and loaded with options for how to organize your subscriptions--all of which add up to a finely made app that any podcast and radio lover should download.
Despite its claim that Stitcher Radio will revolutionize radio, the app is more or less a glorified podcast tuner. However the culture and style of Stitcher Radio are what make it stand out. From news feeds and curation up front that help you discover new shows, to multiple playlist creation options and over 15,000 radio shows to choose from in its library, Stitcher lets users create and organize playlists for different situations that are then automatically updated when new episodes of those shows become available. At the same time, you can listen to live radio or share with friends to see what other people using Stitcher are listening too--this is even easier if you connect the app to Facebook.
On top of its refinement of podcast and radio listening, Stitcher offers desktop clients for Chrome and Firefox, and is free, supported by ads. This is a major plus because often you are forced to choose between cost and performance; with Stitcher you get both in a single package. If you are looking for a single, all in one radio/podcast app, then Stitcher is it.

"Paid trolls must be responsible for good reviews"
Version: Stitcher Radio for Podcasts 5.2.1
Nothing - easy to uninstall
Needs active connection - useless for flights or bushwalks
I've uninstalled itI should explain - lost connection a few times on a walk and it started downloading the podcast from the beginning each time. I downloaded it 6 times in its entirety and never got to hear it all the way through

"TiVo for talk."
Version: Stitcher Radio for Podcasts 4.8.0
On demand. No downloading or syncing. Personalized comedy, news and sports channels. Thousands of shows and easy ways to discover new ones without searching. Facebook integration.
Can't browse show descriptions without interrupting what your currently listening to. No caching. No sleep timer.
I used to say "I don't listen to talk radio.". Then I heard they carried Joe Rogan so I thought I'd give it a try. That was 8 months ago, over 179 hrs. According to Stitcher, I have a 17 day listening streak in the works. My record is 23, set the first month I downloaded the app. Now I listen to Stitcher more than music. I love the Moth, Freakonomics and RadioLab...none of which I'd heard of until using Stitcher. What commute!?! More like a chance to get through all my shows each week.
"This is my necessary."
Version: Stitcher Radio for Podcasts 3.3
