Ratings and Reviews
Handy but super annoying.
As others mention, the info and daily updates are good. When you can get them.
The load speed it unforgivable and the app constantly logs users out and then requires favourite reviews/cams etc to be reset. Having paid an annual subscription in full I am forced to persist, but if I’d know this would be the experience I would not have paid.
Such a huge shame, for what should be one of my most used apps.
Pop up ads have killed it
Ive always used Swellnet before my early morning surfs. But recently they’ve brought in pop up ads, and it’s made it a pain to use.
At least a couple pop up ads whenever you open the app with smaller than usual close buttons (so you’re almost always redirected when you try to close the ads).
Seems like a small inconvenience for an otherwise half decent app. But there are other spaces for advertising which are far less invasive and frustrating for users.
Slow, buggy, annoying ads, and faulty cams.
The current version of this app is slow to load from opening, even with a subscription. Its also quite buggy. Numerous errors upon loading content.
The ads are intrusive and only serve to delay the content further. When you finally get to the report, you may as well have used a browser, which is a much faster and cleaner experience.
While I have found the cams to load quickly on the app, some are always down. That’s ok if you’re not paying, but its hard otherwise hard to justify the money.
It just needs a decent investment and overhaul. Bug fixes aren’t really going to cut it.
Up to six family members will be able to use this app with Family Sharing enabled.
