A great app for podcast fans

THE VERDICT

Stitcher SmartRadio is a podcast app that allows you to be able to listen to podcasts of the genre of your choice. Love football? Music? Art? Current affairs? It's all there, in Stitcher.

It's got more than 15,000 programs to choose from and it can make you a playlist based on your preferences. It'll make you think boredom never even existed.

THE PROS

Stitcher's design is incredible and the app is really attractive and easy to use. It's great for making your own playlists and for browsing all the available content. Just like the other providers, Stitcher lets you rate each program that you listen to, so that it can suggest others you might like. There are so many, that your podcasts will go on forever!

THE CONS

The only thing we can mention is that the app closed unexpectedly after having completed our profile. Other than this, nothing else has surprised us.

    The app won't let you choose which episode you want to listen to, it just plays the newest. It is easier to just go to the website.

    This runs multiple services, one of which (the Sync service) uses the mobile data (4G) connection even when wi-fi network is connected. I don't know how much data this service uses compared to the others, but I don't want to use any of my plan data when I have a wi-fi connection. Not worth it.

    App seems to have a mind of its own. Downloads episodes that I don't want, makes my S4 crash constantly. Only reason to use is there isn't much better out there.
