Ratings and Reviews
Still no streaming capability 👎🏼
I enjoy the app and was excited that it finally updated. I thought for sure I would be able to connect to my chromecast and watch from the app but no... So very disappointing. It seems that you are still behind HBO and Showtime in this arena as both allow connectivity through streaming content. Well... maybe when the next update is released in 5 years we'll have this luxury.
Needed a title...
I saw a rating less than 2 stars and I expected such a messy app. I’m able to watch movies, exit, open other apps, force quit MaxGo, and it’s even got a banner at the top that’s saved my progress and i can restart the movie I was watching.
You can tap the thumbnail to launch directly into the movie, or tap the title below the thumbnail to get the synopsis, cast, running time; you can preview or add to your watchlist.
Video controls are about as simple as you can get. Play/pause, forward 10 seconds, back 10 seconds, closed captions, full/wide screen, and the airplay function I have not tested yet (review will be updated when I do).
Only streaming app I know that can’t cast
Come on guys! Get with the times! It’s not like you’re working on a super tight budget and can’t make this app compatible to cast like the dozens of others I have (including HBO). Sure I could cast to my TV if I had an Apple TV but I don’t. I have a Vizio and haven’t had a bit of trouble using SmartCast with all my other streaming apps but the fact that I can’t do that with this one makes it not worth the while. It’s a shame too, because there’s a great selection of movies but I really don’t want to do watch them on a 4 inch phone screen when I have a 54 inch television. I’m going to cancel this subscription until they get it together and make this app one that works like my dozens of others, and I regret that I spent the money on it in the first place. I’m definitely a very disappointed customer.
