Crashes in the evening on iPad


If it works the app works well. However the critical word here is “if”. On my iPad 2017 with latest software the app simply crashes if opened in the evening (7 pm tonight), even deleting and reloading hasn’t helped. On trying to open on reload app freezes as soon as you try to select the region or says network connection lost when it patently hasn’t! Interestingly on my iPad pro where I left the app open in the background it still works in the evening. However closing and reopening the app immediately gave a spurious network warning again. By all means try the app but be prepared for it to only work on some devices some of the time. Note also that on the iPhone (8+) not only does the app crash in the evening but it only gives you a now & next display.

Could do better


Often crashes and takes ages to load.
Usually displays correct day with red current time line but wrong title for day.
Often displays lost network when it hasn’t.
If you want to look at detail of programs then you won’t have much luck as it either takes forever to appear and then when it does it disappears in less than half a second, if it shows at all.
Can you imagine why anyone would want the newer version with in app purchases. If they can’t get this one right who’d want to pay for something that’s probably just as bad

Having read recent reviews which are critical of this app's performance, I have found it to work well and haven't experienced any of the problems of previous reviewers. I have used other TV listing apps and found this to be the best.
