Stitcher for iOS gets Car Mode, other upgrades

updated 05:51 pm EDT, Fri May 17, 2013

New playback mode allows listening to series of old episodes

Podcast and radio streaming service Stitcher has released an important update of its iOS app, v5.3.0. The major addition is a selectable Car Mode for the iPhone, which brings up a simplified interface. The mode works in both portrait and landscape views.

All versions of the app have been given a redesigned front page, as well as an improved search function, which should provide quicker access to shows. When listening to older episodes of a podcast, users now have the option of playing several episodes in a row with either new-to-old or old-to-new progression. The direction can be switched by tapping a playlist order button after selecting Playing Next.

Sleep timer access has been folded into the equalizer menu in the player screen. Other changes include a new wizard for first-time users, and better performance, including faster playback start when resuming shows.

Stitcher is a free download for devices running iOS 5 or later.
