Doesn't get worse than this
ABC must hate its viewers, because this app keeps getting worse and worse. Do the ABC employees have no shame at all? First of all, this app learns nothing about your show preferences nor what you like to watch, so you constantly have to scroll through an endless alphabetical list of every show to find what you want to watch. Then, let's say you want to skip back 10 seconds in a show. You tap the screen, and then this app takes 5 seconds for the controls to SLOWLY FADE IN! So by the time the controls appear, you now need to jump back 15 seconds! Worst of all, this is the only app on the planet that makes you sit through 30 minutes of commercials for every 60 minutes of actual television programming. You are literally required to sit through 5 minutes of commercials for every 10 minutes of programming you watch. Think about that for a second. A full 50% of your viewing time is sitting through ads. It is a terrible experience all the way around. Is it ANY wonder why network television is dying while companies like Netflix now completely dominate entertainment?? ABC, you are quite likely the worst entertainment company on the planet, and your employees should be truly ashamed of themselves. Not sure how they can even look at themselves in the mirror.
This commercial thing has got to stop!
Ok, I got rid of this app, because it was so annoying. But I reloaded it because I wanted to see the last few episodes of Agents of Shield. But I was really reluctant to do so. Here's why: it starts out with 6 commercials (sometimes just 2) which is too much in my opinion, but I realize bills need to be paid. So after the commercials are over, I realize the show isn't where I watched it last. So I move the bar to approximately where I stopped watching, and I end up watching 6 more commercials, some of which are the same commercials I just got through watching. Then my show comes on, and I realize I moved it too far ahead. So I back up the slide a bit to find my place, and, once again, I am greeted by 6 more commercials. Before I even get to watch my show, I have had to endure 18 commercials and a lot of time wasted. ABC, I realize these sponsors make these programs possible, but seeing them over and over again doesn't sell to me. In fact, it annoys me, and apparently, judging from the other reviews, I'm one of many. NBC's app is scads better than yours. Please do something about this. The app is free, but what is the point if the ads only serve to upset the viewer.
So frustrating to use it takes away enjoyment from the show
I never leave app reviews but this app is so frustrating to use I feel the need to warn others to save their time and don't use it. There are way too many commercials and commercial breaks for a half hour show and the app messes up all the time. It will freeze then go back to a previous spot conveniently before the commercials so you have to watch all 6 again. Be careful though after doing this it will mess up during the 6 commercials and you will have to restart the app because it will freeze and you will have to watch the commercials again. This just happened twice to me and I've deleted this app. There is so much good tv out there nothing on abc is worth watching enough to put up with this headache.
