The cure for the common podcast...
What's NewThis release addresses a few bugs you've brought to our attention, specifically:
- Fix for problems resuming where you left off in a show in some cases
- Fix for Stitcher starting playback in the background without explicitly asking it to
- Fix for shows not playing fully and skipping to the next show in the playlist
- Fixes for a few crashes experienced by iOS7 listeners
- Improved iOS lock screen integration to display correct progress information
AND FROM OUR PREVIOUS UPDATE:
We're excited to bring you Listen Later, a new feature that lets you save interesting episodes for, you guessed it, listening to them later.
- Listen Later: Easily save individual episodes to a Listen Later playlist. Use it when you see something interesting but don't have time to listen immediately.
- Invite Friends: We've made it easier to invite your friends to join you on Stitcher - we appreciate your help in spreading the word!
- iOS7 Compatibility - this version of our app has been tested on iOS7. We've got a big redesign in the works as well so stay tuned!
IMPORTANT NOTE: We've changed the behavior of the app to make it easier to explore without interrupting what you're listening to. Selecting a show now takes you to an info page with more detail and a list of recent episodes. You can shortcut to just playing the show by tapping the play button at the right edge of the row.
