App shuts down every 30 seconds
I love This Old House.....forever. So I was excited to get this app. Unfortunately, it shuts down every 20-30 seconds. I can’t open anything. Start to scroll or look for an episode and down it goes....over and over. Hope it’s just a short term issue. If so I’ll revise this rating...... I increased the rating from 1 to 3 stars....but still buggy. Often shuts down when searching for a How To Video. Have tried to watch a video on installing a backsplash more than 5 times. Shuts down every time. Did watch a few episodes of series 41 but can’t believe I have to watch the same three advertisements five times (about 5 minutes) for a 28 minute episode. Went from episode 6 back to episode 1 instead of 7. I expect more from This Old House
App no longer working
I downloaded this app right when I knew it was available on just about every device I own. After weeks of pleasant viewing, for some reason the app quit letting me sign in and told me I had an authentication failure. So I reset my password and it still won’t recognize my log in credentials. I deleted and reinstalled app multiple times. Weird thing is, when I log on using the same password on the website, it lets me on with no problem. I’ve contacted and had back and forth between TOH Insider reps, but all their suggestions fail to correct this issue. This is a huge bummer.
Software Craftspeople They Are Not
I’m a huge fan of TOH and the content is great to have access to, but unfortunately the app needs more work. In particular, it doesn’t keep track of what you’ve watched. There is no way to tell which episodes you’ve watched or where you were in an episode.
Being unable to navigate away from an episode and choose a different episode when in landscape orientation is a pain as well. I’m hopeful that the developers for TOH can add these sorts of features soon, and get the UX up to at least a professional range, and then take it further to show the type of craftsmanship with their software that they do in their homebuilding.
