Needs some work!
Great job in getting the iOS app out but I have some suggestions that would really help. It looks like this isn’t a native iOS app which is fine but it needs some work to work well. First when playing a video we need the ability to zoom into videos to fill up the screen on devices that have taller screens like iPhone X ect. Second when dragging a video down to close it or keep it in picture in picture mode the animation is broken and when you want to close a picture in picture video the swipe is really janky and broken. Third when you open a channel from the channels screen the button to go back should just be a back button and not a button that says channels and is blue. Fourth I can’t control the video from control center and I can’t pause or play with inline controls and there is also no AirPlay. Keep up the great work guys! Really rooting for you!
Great app, minor issues
I love the app, but I have two mains issues with it. For one, about half the time I load up a video, the loading circle in the middle of the screen does not go away by itself. The only way to get rid of it is to reopen the app or is to exit the video and reopen it. This is pretty frustrating as it is distracting as it’s in the middle of the screen.
The second issue is the app keeps on signing me out every couple days or something like that. This is the only entertainment app on my phone which signs me out after a set amount of time. I find this annoying as I like to sign in and forget. If I wanted to sign out, I would sign out. Not sure if this was a design decision or a bug. These bugs are not preventing me from using the app, it’s just annoying.
Again, I love the progress you guys made on the app. Keep up the great work!
Much improved, but still not as good of a experience as Safari
Don’t get me wrong, the app is well designed and the video playback is very much superior than Safari’s video player. The downside is, there still aren’t as many features. This goes from a 2 star to a 4 star because the app is actually useable now, since the buffer glitch seems fixed. I think the main one I want to see in another update is background play/picture in picture support. Then, the app will go to 5 stars.
PS: Maybe allow a link for sign up on the website since Apple can’t muzzle y’all anymore on that?
