This app is absolute garbage

I use Philo through my university, and it seems like every time I open the app I am harangued with a slew of bugs that prevent me from watching what I want. It constantly crashes and loads incredibly slow. It will oftentimes prevent playback, telling me that I’m accessing it from an “unsupported location” when I’m literally on my university’s WiFi. It will prevent playback because “airplay is not supported” when I am absolutely not using airplay at all. This app frustrates me to no end, more so given the knowledge that my university probably pays thousands upon thousands of dollars for this service that rarely if ever works. I have never written an app review in my life, but right now I’m missing the quarterfinal of the women’s World Cup because of this garbage app, so I thought I may as well vent how fed up I am with it.

Just make it work.

Great for college students! Make an Apple TV App.

For the most part, this service is awesome. Occasionally there are some glitches, but overall it as an awesome commodity that schools provide for their students. The app works super well on iPad and iPhone. Although you can AirPlay to an Apple TV, it would be much easier if there were an app you could download onto your AppleTV instead. A must have app if you’re at a participating college.

This app never works. Not on my iPhone or iPad. It never gets to the loading screen even. I have full WiFi in my dorm hall because I’m able to watch Netflix on all my devices. But whenever I try to give this dumb thing a try it doesn’t even load. I haven’t even been able to see what is on TV. I’ve had this in our building for 8 weeks and I’ve never been more disappointed with something at my College. 0/10. Never get this. Philo Edu should be illegal. I hate it with a passion. If zero stars was possible then I would give it that.
