Decent streaming app, lots of bugs!
The app has a very big library of different shows and movies! No complaints there. A lot of the issue I have is the downloading to device feature the app offers to watch when WiFi isn’t available. First off not every show is available to download. It gives you the option to download the show but when you try and download it I get a error message stating “Invalid response from the download server. Please try again later”. This happens mostly with newer shows. If it’s an older show it will download with no issues. But if there is an option to download every show then all shows should work regardless old or new.
Also while watching a show downloaded on the device with no WiFi while an episode is playing there’s a lot of random skipping, as well as if you watch about 2 episodes the app will just close completely and kick you out. So I would have to re-open the app and start the episode again. Another 2 episodes and it will happen all over again?!?!? If this is a feature that is offered it should work without bugs or issues.
I watch a lot of anime that is the main reason why I use the funimation app. I will download my episodes I plan to watch the night prior and watch them the next day. I have no WiFi to use while I’m not at home so that’s why I rely on the download to device feature. So it would be great if we can get those issues resolved.

Good, but I have a few issues
To start this off, I love the app a lot! I’m glad it has the dub versions of anime’s or shows considering the fact that I love the English Dub version of anime, and I love the quality and the way the episodes are played as well! My issues to the app however, are probably the ads, and don’t get me wrong, I don’t mind the fact that there are ads! But, sometimes when the ads are playing, one would start, and then a second one would start at the same time, which makes it so I can hear either two different ads playing, or the same ad play at two different times, which is honestly annoying. My other issue, is how after both ads have finished playing, I’d go to the episode to watch it, but the audio for more ads are playing in the process, which means I can’t hear the episode I’m watching because the ads are playing over it. Honestly, when I find myself in situations like this, I try and find glitches to fix it myself so I don’t have anymore troubles, but the amount of times it has happened over the past 3 days, and the fact that I can’t find any solutions around it really gets under my skin. This may sound weird, but I’d honestly watch all the ads go by than have to deal with me not being able to watch the episode I’m trying to watch, because I can’t even hear anything.
Thank you for reading, and I’m sorry if this review wasted your time at all.
Very Buggy and will not work with not hold settings
I got this app to watch a different spectrum of anime vs crunchyroll, and the selection of shows is great and the computer web browser is good, but this app, has bugs and issues galore, every time I see an update, they don't go away, they seem to get worse. I try to watch shows in simulcast and it keeps going to uncut even after you select simulcast, If you select closed captions in settings, every single video you still have to select it anyway, which on the computer you don't. The stability as well has issues, I will close the app, and it will still play audio even if the phone is locked, up to about 30-45 seconds. If I hard close the app, not just click out of it, audio will still play for 10 or so seconds. It also seems like the closed captions get desynchronized every few videos if you watch a few in a row and have to restart the player to rid yourself of the issue. I really hope they fix these problems because the layout itself it pretty good and the shows are great.
UPDATE: Funimation did an update and fixed most of the problems I have talked about, great job developers! There is one bug that started recently where you cant always watch new episodes of shows because it says you have to subscribe, but it doesn't bug me all that much so I am updating my rating from two to four, five if that last bug is fixed.
