New version has less useful features

I like a nice nature documentary in the evenings. The old version of this app had some glitches, eg many videos would be missing several seconds of audio and video (even though the video was still playing). I was hopeful such problems would be fixed in the upgrade.
Unfortunately they haven’t. What’s more, the time indicators are gone, as is the ability to add something to you favourites without first opening the article/video. This means you can’t just scroll through a list and create a list of things to watch later - you have to actually start watching it in order to see how long it goes for and to save it to your favourites. That’s pretty useless. Why would they remove functionality that was there in the first place?

Unreliable, failing app with great content

The flawlessness, reliability and logic seamlessly available to us on Netflix is not on this app.
It’s disappointing because the content is great.
Things I never want to do on an app:
- be told every other day that there are issues with the app.
- scroll through large volumes of video options that are completely uncategorised as it’s the only way to see the full list of options
- squint to read the titles of tv programs in a menu because the developers have never viewed their own app on a phone
- have to manually search for the series I am watching every time I open the app
- have to manually go to where I was up to a video everyone I open the app
- have to log in my details every other day because every time the app announces an issue, it seems to log you out.
I’ve seen better organised apps in primary school projects.
Seriously bad.
