Ratings and Reviews
Good app but needs some key features
Some things I'd like to see in future updates:
1) Allow me to see recently viewed programmes or pick up again after mid-viewing.
2) Screen to automatically go to landscape mode when I select a program. The screen goes to landscape whilst size itself into a portrait dimension resulting in half a screen.
3) Ability to cast to the tv using google chrome or google home.
It would be much more popular for the RTÉ player App was available on Apple TV. Even though the airplay is an option, it would be more suitable and convenient for a stand alone iOS RTÉ app.
Need Apple TV App
Good app, just wish they had one specifically for the Apple TV as airplay isn't always ideal.
