    Anyone using Stitcher on their SkyRocket?

    I've used Stitcher for over 2 yrs on probably 15-20 Android phones (don't ask :D ) and never seen this:

    Favorites List / Start playing any one show and it should finish and then start playing the next unheard show in your list, right?

    On my new SkyRocket (which I otherwise love, Love, LOVE) it just keeps repeating the same show over & over, never advancing to the next show???

    Yes; I've deleted cache (and data) ... removed and then re-installed the latest version from the market. Same behavior... just so weird!

    Anyone using Stitcher on the AT&T Skyrocket (with GB 2.3.5) seeing this???

    /BD :thinking:

    I can try it out. Does Stitcher require any type of subscription

    Appreciate the offer... Thanks!

    Stitcher is free to download. One needs to create a userid, which is also free.

    I get the same behavior and there is no setting to correct it. If you press menu.feedback you can send them an email about the issue.

    I tried all of the few settings checked vs unchecked and get no fix.

    I wish you the best of luck...looks like an awesome app for those that listen to talk radio.

    The SR has nothing to do with this. When a show ends, the app expects you to hit the forward button and it takes you to the next show. It is a bit weird, as it requires a couple of "clicks" to take the user to what should be the main menu with the choices of streaming and recorded shows. It works fine within the limitations of the app.

    Nope... I must respectfully disagree.

    As mentioned, I've used Stitcher on many Android phones. When you play a show from your Favorites list and there are other new/un-listened to shows in your list... upon finishing the 1st show, Stitcher will "ALWAYS" automatically then move on and start playing your next (new or unlistened to) show in the list.

    That is the expected and normal behavior.

    Unfortunately on the SkyRocket; Stitcher "NEVER" automatically moves forward to play the next show... it will simply go back to the beginning of any show you've played and begin repeating that same show! Not correct behavior, so something about the Skyrocket's OS build of GB 2.3.5 must be different???

    The intro/welcome to stitched also advertises that the app will automatically progress to the next favorite.

    The app clearly did not operate as advertised.

    I have the same experience with the T-mobile SG2.
    It really sucks because I am constantly having to switch shows while driving. Kinda the point of listening to sticher over blue tooth is a hands free expereince.

    Interesting that the TMO SGII has the same issue.

    Do you know which version of GB is on the TMO version? Is it 2.3.5 by chance?

    Here why I ask - 2 weeks ago I happened to be near an AT&T store, went in and downloaded Stitcher to their SkyRocket with the same negative results. Then; on a whim, put Stitcher on the original GSII in the store and it worked perfectly! OK I thought, maybe coincidence. That GSII was running 2.3.4. I ended up getting my own SGII from eBay (and selling the Skyrocket) and what-do-you-know Stitcher (and other small niggles like the Music Player pausing for no reason) now also worked perfectly! My GSII is also running 2.3.4 and I've since heard from somene whose GSII is on 2.3.6 that Stitcher also works fine there.

    Strange, but perhaps there is something in 2.3.5 that Stitcher doesn't like? Not just a Stitcher problem though as I related that other "small" issues with the Skyrocket are fine on the GSII. As I don't live in an LTE area, I'm perfectly fine on the original GSII... in fact, like the very slightly smaller size better anyway.
