Stitcher Radio Updated With New Automotive Integrations And Background App Refresh

June 19, 2014
Stitcher Radio for Podcasts has just been updated to version 6.1 with a number of improvements. Version 6.1 of the popular on-demand Internet radio app introduces automative integrations with Jaguar and Land Rover, allowing you to control the app through your in-dash MySpin interface in either of those vehicles. Additionally, the updated app includes enhancements and bug fixes for its existing automotive integrations with BMW, Ford, General Motors, and Mazda. Stitcher Radio 6.1 also adds support for Background App Refresh. With this function enabled, new episodes for playlists set for offline listening are automatically downloaded and Front Page content automatically updated. Speaking of Front Page, the latest update to Stitcher Radio also offers better support for saving to listen later and sharing headlines from the Front Page. Now, the app saves or shares only the segment, as opposed to the full episode where the segment belongs. Stitcher Radio 6.1 also includes the following fixes:
  • Ad Frequency Updates - Fixes for ad playback issues on phone call resumes and other situations.
  • Fix for shows becoming marked unheard again after being heard or partially heard in some cases.
  • Fixes for crashing experienced by some listeners
  • Fix for excessive data storage issue experienced by some listeners
  • Additional bug fixes and performance improvements
Compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad running iOS 7.0 or later, Stitcher Radio for Podcasts 6.1 is available now on the App Store for free. Stitcher Radio was updated to version 6.0 late last March with a new design for iOS 7 and other improvements. Stitcher Radio for Podcasts is featured in AppAdvice’s Best iOS Radio Apps and Podcast Apps AppGuides.
