Ratings and Reviews
4 year review.
I have had Haystack on Chromecast about 4 years ago. I have to say I love the app, it has always catered to my interests and does so seamlessly. I generally use this in the morning or just while making dinner.
One thing I would like to see is a more constant refreshing of news. Nowadays everyone is constantly getting bombarded with new news every day - every minute. It needs more categories that are less personalized but more like themed. A common problem with all of this choice is that if you need something quickly you have to wait to choose something and you end up stalling watching The Office for the 8th time.
Make a few channels 24/7 - people will tune in.
Latest update not great
Used to love Haystack. I turn it on in the morning and get my news of the day. Also get to watch some Late Night. But after the latest update, it works different and I don’t like the change. I’ll be watching a story and it will cut out to update the stories. Be great if it went back to the story I was watching, but it doesn’t. Seems to update more than twice while I’m watching. Something has happened to the Late Night category. It used to be diverse and have lots of clips from different late night shows. These days there’s sometimes only five clips. Or sometimes there will only be clips from one show. Like I’ll only be able to watch old Conan. I’m not a fan of Conan or old shows so that’s not nice. I’ve changed settings to no avail. I used to be able to turn Haystack on and walk around either watching or just listening. Now I have to run back to continue stories or get rid of old Conan. I’m also missing the World in Photos that it used to get. All of that together means that I’m still watching it, but looking for something new.

Great app tbh never had any issues. Sometimes when I first used it it would hang in a video and play the sound behind it but simple you close it and open it again and it works fine seriously no big deal. After updates can’t remember the last time that happened. Great place to see top news and it continues without you needing to touch anything. I hope the app doesn’t change to subscription or anything like popular apps like to do I hope it stays the same cause I love this app. Only thing I would recommend see if you can add more news stations not saying the ones that it shows are bad but more never hurts
