Great content, but a real mediocre app

I’m using the app on an iPad Pro 12.9, latest iPadOS and app version.

* Controls are too small and hard to reach
* player is not integrated with iPad OS player controls (control centre is showing: “Not Playing”
* when swiping down control centre to adjust brightness, content stops playing, it’s not clear how to restart playing
* when switching to full screen mode, content stops playing and reloads/buffers again
* no way to use external iPad keyboard to pause, adjust volume (use space to pause/play use arrow up/down to adjust volume is a typical expected behaviour)
* overall feeling of app is slowish when browsing content, looking up the details of content, loading takes quite long and isn’t pre-buffered obviously

Hopefully you could integrate the app better into iPad OS and make it more like the native iPad content playing apps?

Cheers, Happy Easter,

Great content, flakey app

Beamafilm has better content than many streaming services, however the app is extremely slow and features like chromecast simply don’t work. Such a disappointment given how many great films and documentaries are available.

Doesn’t load anymore

Was great and I loved it. Now is rarely loads the app and the films don’t load at all. Disappointing
