Stitcher overhauls iOS app with new interface, function improvements

updated 04:15 pm EDT, Fri March 28, 2014

App aesthetics brought into line with iOS 7

Podcast streaming service Stitcher has released major update of its iOS app, v6.0.0. The app's interface has been redesigned not only to match iOS 7, but to streamline navigation. The front page, for example, now highlights new episodes from favorites, as well as headlines and other news stories. A new Mini Player provides constant access to what's playing, and the Now Playing screen has gained quick access to car mode and the sleep timer. Playlists can be accessed from anywhere in the app via a swipe gesture.

The general functionality of the app has been improved as well. The Mini Player, for instance, will automatically load whatever a person was last playing, making it faster to resume listening. Refreshes are now done seamlessly, but can be forced by pulling down on a playlist. New Show Information pages make it easier to access old episodes, add items to Listen Later, or get recommendations. Recommendations will also appear on the front page.

Listen Later, finally, can be set to download episodes for offline listening. The updated Stitcher app is a free download, and requires iOS 7 or later.
