Stitcher Podcast Radio streams your favorite podcasts on demand! No downloading required. Get all of your favorite podcasts on-demand without having to download them. Stitcher has 5,000+ of the top podcasts available. Personalize your experience by “stitching” together your favorite shows into an always up-to-date playlist.
Pros & Cons:
- Stream your podcasts without downloading them.
- Huge range and variety of podcasts.
- Extensive search functions that let you search by genres.
- Responsive and clear UI.
- Intuitive list-making functionality.
- Lets you share links to the podcasts you like with your friends.
- Lets you ‘Like’ or ‘Dislike’ podcasts, helping you find the best ones for your tastes.
- Unable download podcasts for off-line listening.
Stitcher gives you access to all your favourite podcasts and much more. Simply find the podcast you want to listen to and stream it directly to your phone. The range of podcasts is huge and the ability to create favourites and lists is superb. Users familiar with Google’s Listen app should be familiar with this kind of application.
Stitcher Podcast Radio is a useful application especially for fans of podcasts. The range of podcasts available for streaming is huge. Additionally, the search functions inherent to Stitcher make finding the podcast you are looking for straight-forward. It also lets you find other podcasts you might not have been aware of depending on your interests. The app also lets you build intuitive lists of favourite podcasts, ‘stitching’ together a tailor-made playlist of podcasting goodness just for you. It could be compared to Google’s Listen, but I would say Stitcher is a little more stable and easier to use.
The range of topics available is significant. I could pretty much guarantee if there’s a topic you’re interested in there will probably be a podcast for it. A very quick search for Android found over a dozen Android themed podcasts, a quick search on ‘knitting’ found three!

Stitcher is obviously an entertainment application, and listening to podcasts needs to be your thing for you to consider downloading and using this application. I guess the thing that might prevent people from listening to podcasts is that they can be around 30 minutes long and as people with busy lives, 30 minutes of uninterrupted time might be a rare thing. This app however is a useful tool to have if you do get some spare minutes.
Ease of Use:
When you first open the app you have a series of headings. Comedy, Business & Industry, News & Politics, Society & Culture, Entertainment, Sports…. and so on. There is also a colossal list of sources so, if you want to view podcasts solely from the BBC, E! Or ESPN- you can filter and view those podcasts simply and quickly.
There is a huge wealth of podcasts available via the app. If you like listening to spoken-word broadcasts, you could find yourself using the application on a daily basis. I personally tend to listen to podcasts quite sporadically- like over a weekend or occasionally in the evening.
The interface is smooth and fluid to use, unlike some apps I didn’t experience any lag or disruption. The searches are surprisingly quick, extremely easy to perform and, importantly, accurate for what I was looking for.
