Agile approach needed to improve dish anywhere
I have used dish anywhere for several years. And I have been dismayed by the quality for the last 2 releases. A couple of years ago I had no issues with it. I used it on my iPhone and occasionally on my PC.
The iPhone side has lost quality and not kept up with the hopper 3 interface. I use my iPhone in landscape mode and the progress bar in that mode is completely useless. It never shows the information correctly. The bar is set as I start it up and never changes to fit landscape. The times are not correct either.
The tool also does not let me use folders in a way similar to the hopper 3. Very dissatisfying.
On my pc there are simply too many buttons to push to get it started. And sometimes you have to guess how to get there.
It also is not smooth. Even when I have been watching for a while it will simply pause for a few 10s of seconds and then restart. Gets pixely as well.
Finally when using the guide on my iPhone the buffers are not working well. After using it on several different shows the guide starts disappearing on the grid. Just goes gray
I have worked in the software industry and suggest that if you are not already doing so you should employ an agile approach. Works wonders.
In my opinion is very poor. In the beginning it was good. Things obviously have changed it’s not consistent has a hard time staying on has a hard time connecting has a hard time just playing video. I’ve called customer service numerous times they tell me just to reinstall it I reinstall it and the same stuff happens. Very disappointed I was really looking forward to having this app and I’m not going to get rid of it because I do use it quite often it’s just too bad that they don’t stand behind their product and try to fix it. Sometimes I get the excuses that it’s my Internet ( which is kind of funny because I travel and I use different Internet so it just can’t be my one Internet because it’s multiple Internet ) sometimes I get excuses that it’s my equipment (which mind you they won’t admit that there’s anything wrong with their equipment either when it comes down to it). So I guess were stuck until maybe somebody in corporate has the same issues and gets a little frustrated too.

Lag and streaming is understandably frustrating. Streaming Live TV or DVR content from your receiver has a lot of moving parts. The programming first has to go into your receiver from a satellite, then uploaded to the internet, and then streamed into your device. If something within that system isn't working correctly, issues can happen. We recommend that you have a reliable connection at your receiver and at your device. A strong connection with a network bandwidth of 800 Kbps or better for SD, 4 Mbps or better for HD, will suffice.
If you have multiple devices connected and accessing the internet in your home, streaming can be slower than usual. The same goes for the connection on your device.
Double check these components and try streaming again.

I still love this app, however the one thing I really like about the app has gotten worse. It constantly ask for you to log in. And what is worse, if you have no WiFi or internet connection, you are out of luck. I mainly use my app to store TV shows I have recorded so I can watch them when/wherever I want. Now if I can’t get internet or WIFi, I can’t even get INTO the app to watch what I have stored!! Log in should use have a memory so you could have the ability to check if you would like the phone to remember it. It should also be using the face recognition so you don’t have to constantly type it in...AND it should only require you to”authenticate” your service one a billing cycle instead of every time you open the app!!!
Also, developers might want to rethink where to place the ↪️▶️↩️ buttons on the bottom of the iPhone’s that don’t have a Home button. It makes for a clunky experience. It could easily be fixed by moving them to anywhere else, instead of where the digital home button resides.
Please work these items out so I can give it the 5 stars it truly deserves!!!

If this issue happens often, the next time you're connected to the internet, log out of the app and then close out the app completely. Once closed out, open it up again and log back in.
