Ratings and Reviews
Good except a few things
I’ve been waiting for an app that lets you watch Netflix together cause it’s like all I ever use haha. And this app is amazing for that. But the few things I dislike is that I can’t see my friends reactions to the movies or shows. I think it would be more fun if you could have a video rave. With friends you could see their reactions while hearing each other. Another things is. When the mic is on you can’t really hear the movie as well. It’s very quiet until you both turn the mic off. The mic volume is very loud and covers up the movie sound. I’m not sure if there is a way to turn it down on the setting but I have not seen it. One last thing is, I use Bluetooth headphones and when I try to connect them to the Bluetooth button it connects for a few seconds but then it turns off and says “no Bluetooth devices found”. I don’t know if it’s because it’s already connected to my phone or.. something else but yeah :) just some things that would make your app better than what it already is. That is why I rated four out of five stars. There’s just a few things that could bump it up to five :) other than that I love it!

Hey! Thank you so much for this detailed review - we really value and appreciate your feedback. Regarding video chatting in Rave, this is definitely something we are interested in adding to the app in the future. Right now, we are focused on bug fixes (like Bluetooth one you described) as well as adding more streaming content. Regarding the mic being too loud over top of the movie, our developers are investigating this and working on a fix. Lastly, Bluetooth can be finicky in Rave, and this is another thing we are really determined to fix. Make sure you have the Bluetooth icon in the top left corner of the video player clicked, and then also click the AirPlay icon. If you've done this, and then your headphones are disconnecting from the app, can you try leaving the Rave app, and switching to the Phone/FaceTime app and starting a call quickly, and then ending it? And then go back into the Rave app. This is a funny, weird, temporary fix that has worked for some of our other users describing what you've mentioned here. If you have any further questions, you can reach us directly on Instagram or Twitter at @getraveapp, or on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/GetRave and we can answer any questions you may have. We are happy to chat anytime! Instagram or Twitter at @getraveapp, or on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/GetRave and we can help you to troubleshoot the issue. We are happy to chat anytime! Thank you again for this detailed review! 😊
Horrible performance issues
I originally downloaded this app a couple years ago to watch a kids show with my ex boyfriend, and it worked fine. I used it a lot over quarantine to show my mum videos and watch commentary videos and TV shows like Crashbox with my girlfriend. It worked fine the first while I had it and then it gradually got worse. The premise of the app is great and the interface is very user friendly, even for a tech hag like myself. The thing is, no matter how strong my internet connection is, videos will take ages to load and sometimes not even load at all. Ill be staring at a black screen with a loading wheel on it only to realise that I wasted 5 minutes of my life waiting for a video to load when it wont. And I’ve tried to remedy this, but the app has become completely unusable. I’ve tried going to another rave, starting my own, force restarting my entire phone, restarting the app, uninstalling and reinstalling the app, disconnecting from my wifi to use my unlimited data… nothing works. I just can’t watch videos. They will load forever and sometimes the video player disappears entirely. I’ve tried hanging up calls to see if that’s the problem and it’s not. If I’m lucky the video will play but it’s extremely laggy and at a video quality so bad I cant even see what’s happening on the screen. I love the app but I literally cannot use it. A shame. My girlfriend has the same issue too, so I know it’s not just me.
Huge Security Issues
So lately me and my girlfriend have noticed a few weird things happening on rave. We always thought it was weird how it shows our general location on a map. If it causes so much drama on the app and reviews, why not just remove the feature? Most people don’t want it anyways because it’s weird and uncomfortable. Rabbit didn’t have this and it thrived. The last few times I received a notification in the app itself like a :) message popping up from rave while watching a show in a private session. It wasn’t even a notification on my device. It was in the app itself like it has been compromised or something. What really made us end up deleting rave for good was someone actually joined our private session and changed the session privacy to from private to public. Then they played a random video and left. That just freaked us out and made us immediately delete this application. There is no excuse for this application to have that bad of security issues to this extent. I have no idea if they will ever fix this, but it really made me sad because this is the closest thing to rabbit that i have been able to find since it went down. I really hope there will be huge changes to security on this app and there is an official announcement regarding it all in full detail because it really was great app. What a shame.
Developer Response ,
Hi there, thank you for this honest feedback. We are so sorry that you had this experience with Rave. Regarding the :) popping up when you're on the app, this is an error on our end. It isn't anyone hacking you. We've noticed that this is happening when we send out a notification to our users and they're already in the app. We are working on a solution, but there's no need to worry about this - there is no one hacking you and it isn't the app being compromised in any way. It's just a bug. Secondly, regarding someone coming into your rave. We saw this behaviour a few months ago, and so we made some significant security changes and saw improvements. The fact that this is happening again, is very worrisome to us and we are going to investigate this immediately. If you could please provide us with some more information on this incident, that would be greatly helpful to our softwares and engineers. Please message us directly on social media, or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Again, we are so sorry this happened and we're going to look into this right away. We look forward to hearing from you.
