Ratings and Reviews
This app is pretty crap
Granted it’s essential to watch free films, but wow. Quite crappy. I own a third gen ipad. And use it to watch films on Alaska. You’re better off spending $9.99 to rent the digiplayer. I stopped travelling with my ipad because it’s pointless. The free movies are all crap old films. The only new films are on the digiplayer but they don’t tell you that part you’re just confused as to why you don’t have access to the same films since they advertise it that way. The app barely works. How hard can it be to make a good looking functional app? Hard apparently. This thing is super bare bones. It’s like roboticists made the app. These guys make cool robots but terrible interfaces. It feels like you’re using a windows 97 media player on a 333mhz computer that’s about to send you a blue screen of death for guess what doing its sole function “Play A Movie”
Worked Perfect on Alaska Air
I was dubious about downloading this app after reading the HORRIBLE reviews left recently. They all had 1 thing in common, they were all on different airlines (Delta, American Airlines, etc.) No one had recently reviewed their experience with Alaska. I was able to download the app in the air on my IPhone 8 Plus using their FREE Wifi from Seattle to LAX. I was able to watch Oceans 8 with headphones and subtitles because I sometimes miss details when they have accents. It was an easy interface through the app and I could have accessed through Safari. It worked perfectly for me. Thank you, Alaska for going the extra mile and making it possible to have free entertainment on my flight. And to the app developers, I would drop an airline that does not back your play, man! That’s not helping you guys get anywhere. I am glad I took a chance and downloaded this app.
Difficult to make this app run on an iPhone (6s in this case). Unclear instructions on how to initiate (lag through browser doesn’t help) and it’s unclear when the airplane WiFi has actually connected. WiFi / app dropped out frequently. Once running app was smooth for a while. Was able to watch about an hour of a movie; longest uninterrupted stretch was about 40minutes. After about 1 hour of a 2 hour movie the app wouldn’t reconnect at all. Something of a movie watchers teaser because now I need to buy the movie to see the closing half...
Unfortunately the situation (lack of reliability) created by the app seems to be designed to claw a few more $ out of your pocket by encouraging users to cave in and rent the airline movie player. Better off downloading movie content onto your device prior to the flight and avoid paying unnecessary movie player rental fees. Overall, don’t bother with this app until it is substantially improved.
