A better question is what isn’t new?! We’ve taken all your feedback and everything we’ve learned and completely redesigned the Stitcher app to make it more personalized and simpler to use. Easier to access the shows you love and discover new ones that you’ll soon love. Let us know what you think at feedback@stitcher.com and check out our blog for tips & tricks for the new version. Here’s just a bit of the newness:

* MY FRONT PAGE - We’ve reimagined the front page as your personal audio feed. With new episodes from your favorites, recommendations based on your listening as well as headline news and trending stories, it lets you pop open Stitcher and instantly start listening to fresh, personalized content.

* SIMPLIFIED NAVIGATION - Access your playlists with a single swipe from anywhere in the app.

* REDESIGNED PLAYER CONTROLS - New Mini Player lets you always see and control what’s playing. Swipe the Mini Player up to access the full Now Playing view, then swipe down to minimize. You can now access car mode and sleep timer via the Now Playing screen.

* LAST PLAYED - The new Mini Player automatically loads whatever you were playing last so you can jump right back in, right where you left off.

* MORE PAST EPISODES - New Show Information pages let you access more past episodes than ever before - easily listen, share or save them to your Listen Later playlist.

* RECOMMENDATIONS - Better recommendations, delivered to you on your Front Page as well as on individual Show pages - for example discover what listeners of This American Life also like to listen to.

* SIMPLIFIED PLAYLISTS - Easier than ever to access, set for offline listening, and manage your favorite shows in playlists.

* DESIGNED FOR iOS7 - Visually refreshed to take advantage of iOS7 design cues and technologically refreshed to leverage underlying iOS7 technologies.

* SEAMLESS REFRESH - Stitcher seamlessly refreshes and now lets you pull to refresh (swipe down) so you always have the latest episodes available.

* LISTEN LATER - Easily add episodes from anywhere to your Listen Later playlist - from the Front Page, your playlists, and past episode lists. Even set it to download for listening to these episodes offline.

* REFRESHED iPAD APP - Oh yeah, a fully updated iPad app as well.
