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.
