UI and problems with watching certain shows

The user interface is poor at best and completely broken at worst. I have issues with speed and connection even using a LAN connection and good internet speeds. This problem makes about half their library unavailable at any time and doesn't have any rhyme or reason for their failures. The download is slow and updates seem non-existent. After they bought VRV I hoped they would build off of VRV's perfectly good app and brand it funimation, but they took it the other way. New series they've recently gotten the rights to that are touted as great additions; I would agree they are great additions to their library, but none of them are actually available for me to watch, it just says come back and try later.
Broken system without hope for anything better since there is now a semi-monopoly on the anime streaming game by Sony and their terrible app.
If there was ANY alternative to Funimation's app on phone/tv/computer I would even pay them an extra couple dollars to fix their problems, but I wouldn't trust Sony at their word for all the (insert valuable item here) with respect to fixing problems. Funimation has sucked for years, now it is getting much, much worse. I expect not to be able to watch any of their new acquisitions this year, maybe they'll fix it by 2023?

Second review

My first review, over a year ago, was one of the most strict and brutal reviews I’ve ever written. The app was truly bad and the overall service sub par. After the update and reformatting, things have been over 9,000 times better. It’s much easier to use, the layout is more friendly. And they probably added more servers. Idk. Seems faster. Thankfully they decided to change it for their customers.

3 things though. 1 It would have been nice to know that there was an update on the way. Seeing as how it might have taken awhile to make. Knowing it ahead of time would have made being patient easier. 2 They say you can stream multiple devices, but if that’s true why not add multiple profiles so that my wife can watch her stuff and I can watch mine. If we are on the same show at different times it’s makes it difficult to pick up where I left easy. I’m feel that it wouldn’t be terribly hard to do that but I don’t format or program, so idk 3 if you are watching a show and want to continue where you left off I wish that clicking the show would take you to the details instead of playing. It sounds counter intuitive but that’s because when someone else is watching. The same show and I want to check what episode is up I gotta go find the show.

It’s not that bad of an app but…

I enjoy Funimation and it’s wide variety of anime although there are a few problems. First of all I don’t see a casting button on the new version of the app. I remember seeing one previously so it’s quite annoying that I can’t find it anymore in the newer version of the app. Another problem is the ads. I understand you need to make money but the ads don’t stay consistent. Whenever you try to watch an anime normally you get one ad before you begin to watch although sometimes you’ll get all five. And although it’s bothersome to sit through five ads that is not really a problem for me. One of my biggest problems is when I’m trying to watch this one dubbed anime (My Roommate is a Cat) the subtitles are turned on. I’m not a big fan of unnecessary subtitles so I turn them off but then I have to watch another five ads after turning off the subtitles. And every single time I stop watching and go back to that anime the subtitles are turned back on. I hope you can fix this issue or make the ads less. Because it is very bothersome to sit through five ads back to back just because I don’t want to watch an anime that I can understand the language of (English) with subtitles that the app puts on the show manually.
Thank you for reading this and have a lovely day/night.
