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.

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!!

App seems to have broken down

All was fine with Idol App until this morning. When I tried to open it, it closed immediately. I deleted and then downloaded - same problem. I did vote last night and am wondering if the app broke down. Otherwise I was enjoying it and was able to view past performances and vote. Sorry for the two stars, but the app isn’t working at the moment.
