Ratings and Reviews
Some things could make this a whole lot better
The content on this service is really good, it makes living in Australia a bit better so we can watch some of those shows that Netflix doesn’t want to supply for us.
However, reading other people’s reviews I have to agree with them - the sound cutting out is easily the most annoying thing aBout this app. At first I just thought it was something wrong with my phone, or the program I was watching but after using different headphones and different devices, it happens with everything. I’ve also found subtitles going out of sync and not fixing themselves, and only as I was rewinding the episodes to try and get it back in order I realised the subtitles were out was because it skipped a whole section of the show!
I would also like to see a rating service for the shows and reviews etc to help with making decisions on what to watch
Good content but several annoying issues
The only positive thing I can really say about Stan is that it has decent content.
The Stan experience on mobile and tablet devices is disappointing to say the least.
Every 3 minutes I get a my stream paused and a pop-up saying ‘your connection has switched from wifi to 4G’. The connection has never actually switched, maybe a momentary weak signal at best. Perhaps change the warning so it only occurs after a significant amount of time off wifi connection? Gets to the point where I want to throw my phone at the wall when I have 5 pop ups in under a minute interruption my stream.
On another note, when I go back to the main menu or suspend the app while watching a series, when I go back in it will return to the start of the previous episode in the season instead of resuming where I left off. (For example when half way through watching episode 5 I will go back to my home menu then go back in and it will start from the beginning of episode 4.
Please update the Stan app on your iOS device when you get a chance. You will be able to turn this warning off in the App Settings.
Love the Stan app but it doesn’t ask if I’m still watching!
I’ve had the Stan app for maybe a couple of years now and over the past few months it won’t ask if I’m still watching after 4 episodes of a show. For example I was watching Friends on my iPad last night and fell asleep. I woke up at almost 5am and it was still playing... 13 episodes later! The most episodes it’s played of something previously was 17 and only stopped as my iPad battery went flat.
I’m not completely inept with technology so yes, I’ve turned the options off and on in settings on multiple occasions and it’s done nothing. Please enlighten me with a fix for this.
Other than that I like the app better than the one on my tv, as it only gives you the last show you watched as a ‘Continue Watching’ option.
Can you please update the Stan app on your iOS device? You should no longer experience issues with the "Are you still there" feature.
