Paid Membership - Still Have to Buy
Have a paid monthly, wanted to switch to yearly. Now, I'm doubtful about either. Was going to show someone the benefit of it since it can end the weekend off laughing BUT after choosing a show, being told to BUY. Decided to see what happens if I chose buy, it says I'm a monthly subscriber. It won't even let me buy it. Did the restore purchase, cleared the cache. Submitting a help request now. Next is to delete the app. 1 star for having last week's #runningman episode less than a day after broadcast. Hopefully, I can edit the review if things are resolved.
Nov. 22, 2017 Update
So, the above was resolved BUT it happened again. Payment cleared early Nov. and still showing that I have to buy when it shows I’m a subscriber. When I tried to cancel the subscription, it says that the subscription will begin in Dec. (since it shows to them that I have my Nov subscription). I’ve been communicating with the horrible customer service & included Print Screens. The rep or whoever says he/ she was telling me to redo everything on a PC. HELLO, it’s clear on the Print Screens attached to my complaint. There’s no other way to attach a file since the customer isn’t given that option on a mobile device. Deleting the app now. Disappointed because like many, we liked watching Running Man, IC & 1N2D.

Is it just me or...?
I have some pretty significant issues with the app on my iPad. The subtitles don’t come on automatically- every episode I watch I have to pause the show, turn off the subtitles, and then turn them back on in order to get them to work. This is annoying enough on its own, but what makes it infinitely more of an issue is that when I then try to go back to rewatch the part that I missed without subtitles, the screen “locks up” and I can no longer get anything to work on the screen. The video will continue to play, but none of the touch features work any longer. I can’t pause, rewind, fast forward, adjust sound, brightness - all those player features (which would be awesome if they worked) no longer function. I have to then close the app completely and start over. This happens anytime I try to use any of the on-screen features. This has been an ongoing issue for many months for me. I assumed it was a bug that would be fixed in time but after so long, I’m starting to wonder if it’s just me. I’ve been using the app since it was first developed and want so badly to like it, but my patience is running out. A service that costs this much to use needs a player that works properly.

Decent functionality, but lacking in watched episodes tracking is a bummer
In general, I like the app just fine. Some of the functionality issues I had were either added recently or newly documented in a way that made them obvious and usable. The biggest issue I have is how impossible it is to manage what you’re actively watching. The episodes list in the app doesn’t show any check marks or progress bars and the history is too limited and erases itself regularly. So if I’m binging a show, it’ll kick the last viewed episode of any other series I’m watching off the list in fairly short order. Or, if I have a stretch of a few days where I’m not able to watch anything on KOCOWA due to real life requiring that I come up for air occasionally, the watched list will be erased entirely and then I have no way to find out where I left off if I can’t remember off the top of my head until the next time I can access the site on my desktop. That’s really my biggest frustration. Otherwise, the app functions reliably and well on my phone.
