Speed controls

The app is not bad but the interface is interface is is very cluttered and there is no way to speed up the video. Of the two, I’d forgive the interface issues if I could speed through the video at 1.5 or 2x’s, slowing down for the sections that are new and unfamiliar.

Right now I’m watching the videos in WebPlayer off the developer site and marking them as viewed in the WWDC app, in the hope that someday the dawn will break, the birds will sing, and most significantly of all, the app will allow me to speed up video.

New year, same problems

Every year I’m so excited for WWDC, and every year I’m so disappointed by how bad this developer app is. This year the iPad and iPhone version doesn’t crash as much, but now the Apple TV version doesn’t sync at all with the iPad/iPhone/Mac version. Like why the heck not? The Apple TV version also crashes every time new content is available on the main WWDC tab. There’s no way to mark an Apple TV session as watched.

Finally, the Mac version of the app gets hung up all the time. It just stops playing the video and spins. Sometimes pausing the video, going back to the menu, selecting the video again, and playing resumes. Other times it will cause the app to crash and when you re-launch, the video will start from the beginning.

I seriously don’t understand why this app is so incredibly terrible. You watch all these sessions about what not to do in an app, and even have Apple reject you many times because your app does these things, and then the Apple developer conference team puts out an app with all these problems that would get others rejected from app review.

Disappointing and has unacceptable bugs

Would give 0 stars if possible. There is no way on iPad to control playback speed. There are so many videos to watch developers need to be able to easily increase playback speed if desired. Tried downloading video hoping this would allow access to speed control. Still no controls for speed and worse yet there is a bug where you are not able to delete the downloaded video so it will take up large amount of space on device forever. These are basic things and it is unbelievable Apple developers created this app and that these basic things don’t work. Very disappointed. Please at least provide a way to delete a downloaded video. Running iOS 12.3.1 on iPad Pro. Desktop version seems to have speed control but didn’t really want to watch the videos on Mac. Prefer to watch on iPad.
