Good Sh... Stuff! Kinda...


It does what I needed to do, looks nice, and functions as well as the PS3-version of the app. More than satisfied when watching on the device that launched the app.

The functionality with Chromecast, however, is quite poor.
1. Why is the little carrot-arrow the ONLY part of the minimized controls that will maximize to the full control screen?
2. Why do items that are hidden or obstructed visually by the minimized control bar, seem to always have touch preference? I tap any of the mini controls, especially that nearly untappable carrot-arrow, and the app starts playing whatever happened to be underneath. And, when that happens, what I was trying to watch is not available under "continue watching", so I must find it again; restarting from the beginning.
3. Why do the 10-second skip controls persist while casting? Have you ever used other casting apps? The rest convert their 10-second skip controls to 30-second skip when casting. Every control executes after a buffering delay, except pause and (resume) play. So, it takes about 5 seconds to execute a 10-second skip OR a 30-second skip. To put it in perspective, a 30-second skip would be equally frustrating if it takes 15 seconds to execute. And, if a 10-second skip takes 15 seconds to execute, your app should either have a drug habit, or be traveling near the speed of causality (a.k.a. the speed of light).

Yay TV App Integration!

Mad Monk 11

I used to have HBO Now as a subscription from iTunes, but a while back I got HBO free with DirecTV NOW, so I had to switch over to HBO Go. I was totally disappointed that the HBO Go app wasn’t integrated with the TV app from Apple. Well, I just recently checked HBO Go again, and it is integrated with Apple’s TV app now!

The only reason I didn’t give 5 stars is because when I am in the TV app and I find HBO content, I click the content and I am taken to the content in HBO Go, and I have to click play in HBO Go to start the movie or show. In HBO Now, if I find HBO content in the TV app, I just click it and I am taken to HBO Now and the movie just starts playing. Basically, HBO Go needs to integrate with Apple’s TV app just like HBO Now does.

However, things are functional. A movie or show watched adds to Up Next in the TV app and everything works just fine. Just fix that one little issue and I’ll go up to five stars.

I’ve Had Better... MUCH Better


Crappy app. For starters the login process is lengthy and redundant. Why do I need to go on a web browser to log into an APP???
Secondly you can’t add entire series to your Watchlist. However you can add individual episodes. But who is going to start off a series and take the time to add 80 episodes to your Watchlist?! Then continue to do that every time you start a new series. Do you even want us to watch your content??? Meaning you have to do a search for the show every time you open the app. What’s the point in even having a Watchlist? Very annoying. It should also be noted once you finish the individual episode you tediously added to your Watchlist, it doesn’t disappear on it’s own. You have to manually delete it, but WAIT, you can’t delete them individually... you can only clear them all at once.
Don’t get me wrong... the quality of the movies and shows are great. App has never crashed on me.

But that being said... HBO... do better. & hire a better developer.
