I usually use this app every day multiple times a day with little to no problems. Today when I opened it it didn’t display any of my subscriptions or videos and instead said authentication error or something along those lines. I couldn’t remember what email I used for viewing/subscribing but when I figured it out and I tried to log back in, the same account that I had used every day with multiple, probably more than 50 subscriptions had only four or five subscriptions on the account. I don’t understand what happened or why this happened, because it was doing it before i updated it. i figured it needed to be updated when i saw “authentication error” so i updated it. it was still doing it after. Hopefully this is fixable but for now I guess I’ll have to go find every channel that I was subscribed to before now. Not to mention all of my comments and liked videos and my watch later folder are all gone. it’s like i have to start over.

Video overlay bugs and awkward UI design. But the app itself is still convenient enough.

At various points watching a video the overlay will flash, partially blocking my view with the pause/play controls, video progress slider, and various other controls while also dimming the video itself until I either wait for it to leave or tap in an unused space. In terms of user interface, i find it unnecessarily difficult to engage the ‘options’ control (in the bottom right corner of a thumbnail) while browsing. I usually attempt to use this feature when trying to add a video that I’ve not watched to my watch later list. More often than not, however, despite pressing where I need to, I’ll be thrown into the video instead. It’s like trying to click something pixel perfect with your thumb. Thirdly, and this is a personal gripe, but MAYBE not showing me the same advertisement five times in a video would be nice? If I’m gonna be assaulted by them, may as well have variety. Seeing the same ‘Wow, You Can Really Dance’ Tik Tok commercial really wears down my patience, to put it lightly.

Over a decade of never getting it right.

Every time there is a new update, I start getting these little errors that pop up as my videos crash that say “experiencing difficulties?”. The answer, besides the everyday usual incompetence of this app, is no. It happens the same way, with the same choppy cut sequence every time. Seems deliberate. Videos you click on don’t display in watch history until after the ad has finished. So if the app has a problem like it usually will, or you have to walk away from your device, you can’t find the video again. Can’t right a comment and rotate the screen without it freaking out and having the word box disappear or freezing while the keyboard changes color to a dark gray. Thought a white play button was a stupid idea? Well here, let me dim the background so you can’t see what’s going on! To top it all off, half the time when the screen is rotated and the switched back, it shrinks to 1/4th full screen and requires a restart. These are problems on all of mine and my friends devices. We’ve a game of see what will break next.

At least there incompetence is good for something. Most of the time I can use a simple trick to completely skip all ads..
