Needs a recently added section
Great app, I use it most nights to watch documentaries. But I struggle to find New content sometimes as only a fraction of new shows are highlighted the rest fall into the alphabetical search engine and are lost forever it would be so much easier to find content you haven't watched if there was a recently added section where shows where added in order, starting at most recent. (like they have on love film.)
Great app. Keep up the great work.
I've been using this application for quite some time now and it is a really good application, it is so user friendly and I can navigate it with such ease. The chromecast functionality works like a charm the only reason I haven't given five stars is because I think it could benefit from having cast control in the notification hub you can drop down.
I have used this app on both Appel devices for the Last 2 and a half years without a glitch but for some reason this latest update has stopped me using it completely I am extremely disappointed that it updated automatically despite my settings being set to manual updates I hope it fixes itself fast if it does it deserves a 5* rating please fix it soon
