App does not start

I really like the app etc, but recently a problem has occurred - when I open the halo channel app a message pops up saying "data could not be retrieved, check your internet connection". My internet connection is fine - I believe something is wrong with the application itself. Please fix this

So slow!

I don't know what is wrong with this app, but it's so slow at loading on an iPhone 6s. Also, it didn't use any of the standard iOS gestures or best practices. Does my head in that I can't swipe back from the left, all the animations are slow. I mean, come on Microsoft/343, get in the real world. Make things fast and native to the platform.

Side note: the Xbox app is just as bad with the same problems, not native and so slow.

Great app but is missing something.

This is a good app for halo news, seeing featured community stuff and checking Spartan companies but I think the app should include a way to download community forge maps for halo 5.
