Ratings and Reviews
Problems saving votes
I needed to enter my votes three times before they were saved. The first time, I hit the Save Votes button and it just dimmed and gave no acknowledgement (when I went to the Video tab and back to the Votes tab, my votes were gone). The second time, I hit the Save Votes button and the whole window ‘paled’, like a thin white piece of paper was over it (and when returning, my votes were gone again). The third time I entered my votes, I received the Thanks For Voting acknowledgment, and my entered votes were remembered. (At least I had written down my votes before initially entering them.)
And why does the Apple App Store show reviews from two years ago (and not note that it is from an earlier version)?
iPhone 6 Plus - app just crashes on start even after reinstall & reboots.
Worked first time I downloaded & voted. Now, second episode to vote and won’t do anything. Soon as I started app, AMERICAN IDOL logo with ABC underneath comes up with all its animated shooting stars. App then just crashes & home screen appears. Tried repeatedly to delete, re-download, reboot, you name it. All same result. Sadly, I guess I can’t vote to keep my favorites going forward in the competition. Simply to complicated to text or call in votes so I guess you’ve lost a fan’s votes. So unfair to these incredibly talented performers putting it all on the line each week to achieve their dreams. Disney & ABC...shame on you not fixing this app & having it in the pristine shape the performers are in. They deserve so much better...& you should be delivering in spades like they do to support them. FIX IT!!
Glitchy after the show is on
I love this app and all, but there are a few things I want it to be fixed. The first thing is, after you see all the contestants on TV and you might’ve missed a few you try to get on the app to see the people you missed and it loads for a second but then it glitches you out of the app. I asked some friends to try to do the same thing and they said the same thing happened to them. But what I like about this app is that the voting is super easy you just click a few buttons of how much you want them and then save your votes and you’re good! This is a great app but it can be better.
