• AirPlay and Chromecast compatible.
What's New in Version 3.16
In this version, we've made your settings 100% more intuitive and easy to access. Now, instead of going to the iOS settings, you can change your defaults right from within the App! Scroll to the bottom of the left sidebar menu and tap the settings cog to:
* Control background playback
* Change your notification settings
Need a 'Favourites' list.
I follow a lot of channels that I want to support, but not necessarily watch on a daily basis. So I think a second option to favourite certain channels would be great. Then when I click on 'following' I get my favourite channels listed by viewership, then the rest of my followed channels listed by viewership. The channels I watch most often are the less popular ones and I find myself scrolling to the bottom of my following list by default to get to the channels I know I'll be tuning into.
Great App, but not perfect.
This app runs extremely well, seldom crashes and it is easy to find your favourite streamers.
There are some things however that are crucial and important to Twitch that are not included.
- Subscription renewals cannot be accessed on the app, so if it's your subbiversary, you have to tab out of the app and go to the twitch website on Safari.
- Whispers are broken 90% of the time, meaning you send someone 10 of the same message even if you click once.
- The menu system is clunky, hard to navigate and will occasionally scroll under your screen so you can't access your profile settings unless you close and reopen.
- Chat system can lag and prevent you from retracting your keyboard.
- Limited profile options in comparison to desktop version.
Ease of use 5 stars
So easy to set up and use. Maybe a tutorial on how to reduce the chat window after posting and allowing a back button when selecting a search item so you don't have to search again. Couldn't fault this app.
