Internet audio streamer Stitcher claims it’s the top downloaded podcast app on Android and the second most downloaded podcast on iOS systems.
A release says that the app has been downloaded 12 million times. It also noted that Stitcher’s program catalog had doubled in size to 20,000 programs available for download.
The release also points to benefits: “This audience growth is also bearing fruit for its content partners. Stitcher notes that payouts for qualified partners have doubled during the past year and the number of partners in its revenue program has tripled during the last 12 months.”
Furthermore, “Stitcher’s ability to deliver highly targeted, interactive and trackable audio ads based on specific interests is a major differentiator versus traditional radio and a key reason for its early success … Stitcher says it sees a 90% listening completion rate on its audio ads.”
