What's New in Version 4.1.7
- Minor bug fixes and improvements
Lags and crashes
Will crash during one of the 5 commercials I have to watch...then I get to watch them all over again when I reopen the app. Annoying enough that we have to watch the same 3-5 commercials over and over, but when it takes longer than an hour to watch an hour long show because of how often the app crashes...unacceptable. Not to mention, I cannot watch a show until it's been a week or more longer since it ran. Cable and satellite are too expensive for what you get (ie: 3 networks over the "public television networks" that you actually want) so I go to an HD antenna and now have to constantly wait for the shows I actually want to see.
(V) (;,,;) (V) Your app is bad, and you should feel bad.
This is just pure conjecture on my part, but as many times as this awful app has been updated with such bad results, I don't think it is the developers' fault at all. This must be the fault of C-level executive trolls incapable of understanding any sort of technology that doesn't involve string pulling and the identification of farm animals.
Cons: ABC took a mediocre app and made it awful. Then they took the awful app and made it dreadful. Then they took the dreadful app and made it insufferable.
Pros: I am expanding my vocabulary while learning to convey just how bad this app is.
I like that they have an app where you can watch the episodes, but I have some issues.
A) It has a limited amount of shows. It only has about 4 episodes per show which isn't helpful because I don't want to just see 4.
B) It has LOTS of bugs. It crashes 80% of the time and also has lots of "errors". (ABC, please fix this)
C) So I verified my TV provider and everything so I could watch the newer shows, which is fine, but there are so many ads!! I would have thought by giving personal information like that, you would have excluded the ads.
Oh well, these are just suggestions. Overall the app is helpful (especially if you don't have cable or Netflix) and I use it on a daily basis.
