PC World: "The quality and selection simply blow most of the other live-streaming apps out of the water... "
Mashable: "If you’re ditching cable, there are many alternative content destinations online. If you’re a gamer, one of those is probably TwitchTV."

• New profiles for broadcasters -- learn about your favorite channels, even if they’re offline
• iPad specific: new player layout that lets you watch & chat together side by side, easy access to the viewers list, and updated gestures to get you to content quicker
TwitchTV is a good app, especially as I enjoy watching people playing games, so this caters to that perfectly. Few issues here and there, namely the not always consistent streaming. However it's rare.
I also echo other reviews in saying that this app needs the ability to watch previous recordings, which was my main reason for downloading this app, only to find I can't do it! Still, it's a great app, highly recommended.
With the update, it has been completely overhauled and looks a lot fresher. Streams seem to be a tad slower to load than with the previous update, however, so perhaps this is something that can be looked into?
Just need one thing changed
When you are watching the stream, there should be an option like the old version where you can click the speech bubble to see chat, but now you have to turn the screen around to see chat and it is very annoying , please change. The only other problem I found is that when you log in, it occasionally logs you out again randomly. Please fix and then the app will be perfect
I only started using Twitch when I got my PS4, then the update came for XB1 so I decided 2 sign up - it's highly addictive! I can see me spending a lot of time watching broadcasts (got unlimited data) when I'm bored, so great job 4 bringing the app out so broadcasts can be watched anywhere!
My only issue is that u can't update ur profile within the app, but still full marks from me!
