Stitcher Unveils Offline Mode
Stitcher has released an “offline mode” update enabling anytime-anywhere listening for its iPod Touch, iPhone, and iPad apps. Listeners can now access and discover the best of over 10,000 shows anywhere, regardless of cellular or WiFi connectivity. Stitcher CEO Noah Shanok said, “Our goal is to make on-demand radio more accessible than ever. Our most requested feature, offline mode, solves the biggest obstacle to listening on the go or when users would prefer to use Wi-Fi and conserve mobile data usage.”
The update includes:
Offline Mode – Listen to any of your custom stations in offline mode. Stitcher automatically updates in the background, ensuring episodes are always up to date. You can set Stitcher to update via WiFi only to conserve your cellular data. The app displays the amount of storage used, and saved shows can be deleted with one tap.
Comments – Make your listening experience more interactive. See what other people are saying about your favorite episodes and join the conversation.
Easier Sharing to Facebook – Keep the sharing alive with pre-populated show descriptions, sources, and a bigger comment box.
Improved Search – It’s even easier to search for past episodes on iPad.
Improved AirPlay and connected device integration – Stitcher will always pass show information to iPod/iPhone compatible devices and AirPlay.
The updated Stitcher app is available now for all iPod Touch, iPhone, and iPad devices and can be downloaded from the iTunes App Store.
