I’ve been using Stitcher to listen to most Podcasts. The only frustrating thing was that every time I got a call or had to check on something with the phone, I would have to re-open the program.

Not anymore.

Stitcher’s newest release features the option to run in the background. Therefore, you can read a text message, send an email, read your horoscope, check stocks and more while your favorite podcasts are playing.

Of course, we know that iPhone OS4 was bringing background application options. This was an application that truly needed it.

Stitcher is a way to get all podcasts through your iPhone, Android, Blackberry and Palm Pre. Stitcher is also partnered with Ford to give you podcasts while driving.

I am a Happy Camper…

    Too bad listening to Stitcher in the background only works on iPhone OS4. :(

    Get Stitcher to work in background on OS3 and I might listen more often. I can’t afford a new OS4 iPhone. Creating an app to do that via OS3 shouldn’t be any big deal for a competent app builder.
