Coooooooookkkkkiiiieeeees ,


slow app, seriously needs to be fixed. everytime I press an option on “are you still watching”, the app crashes. when I click on a menu option or show/movie, it keeps going back to the main page. there’s are 20 sec rewind but no option to go forward 20 sec? would be better if there was a skip intro and subtitles as well. :/

A bugs life

Where do I start? I can’t make my mind up what my favourite feature is, is it the fact they haven’t ever used Netflix and copied the “skip into” function? Or perhaps that you can either skip back 20sec, or skip forward an entire episode, such good consistency! Although, come to think of it, it could be the recent addition of a super helpful feature, the app interrupts watching to check I’m still watching, to then crash when you click “yes” (without fail I might add) or to take you right back to the top of the home screen when you click “no”. Super stuff Lightbox. I hope you make sure your developers get a big peanut bonus for all their hard work.

An error has occurred

Every time we watch Lightbox, I select “resume” but often the show is like 2 episodes back like it hasn’t remembered where we got up to. It also suddenly stops multiple times and shows an error. We then have to close lightbox down, open it back up again and (as mentioned earlier it doesn’t know where we are up to) so have to press resume, then skip and fast forward trying to figure out where we were. It’s got nothing on Netflix.
