Wasn't home, now can't get episode 6

I can't get the walker for episode 6, and I couldn't watch it live for two reasons, I wasn't home and my grandfather was watching football. I'm watching the episode tonight, and I try to get my walker, and nope, won't scan it. I've scanned it when it wasn't directly live before, and I love the show, I love collecting the walkers, but I hate that I can't see what the episode 6 walker is.

Don’t waste your time

It was fun until it wasn’t. Near the end of the season (ep 9), the app experienced a glitch where users got stuck on the loading screen. I deleted the app hoping to reset the error. When I reinstalled, I could get back in, but every walker I had collected was gone. Tried deleting and restoring again, still no luck. So after wasting a bunch of time scanning commercials and products every week for 9 weeks, I have a half-baked useless space-wasting app with 2 default walkers and the one from the ep 10 commercial. Pointless. Considering how little this app actually does, it’s surprising they couldn’t even get the account retention piece right. Contacting the developers gets a form response of “we know the app is broken and basically useless, but please be patient while we work it out”. No thanks. Would give zero stars if I could.

Was good now crashes!!!!!

I was enjoying trying to collect all the walkers until recently when the app started crashing!! I was able to trick it into loading by shutting off Internet then open app then it will tell me it needs network so I turn it back on then hit ok. But it shows that it's on episode 1 so it will only allow me to get episode 1 walker, which I already have. My app just started crashing but my daughter, who has the app on her iPad, has had issues with it crashing for a few weeks now. This is very frustrating & they need to not only fix it but also allow us to get the walkers we are missing because of this issue.
