Customer Reviews

Useless rubbish

I have super fast (152mb) broadband with excellent connection, yet on all 3 of my Apple devices this app kept reporting that I had no network connection (which I obviously do to allow me to write this negative review). I also discover from other reviews that this app, when working, shows only stuff from the USA, which is of more interest to our American cousins than us here in Blighty. Maybe the app refusing to work is a blessing in disguise. I shall now delete it and make room for an app that works!


Great to see things from before my time and the things from my birth year all those childhood memories just come flooding back. Thank you to those who took time and effort in forwarding the videos and to the makers of this great app. Shame not every video works but hey ho not everything is perfect

Should mention USA in the title

No problems loading or running it but little of relevance to me as I don't live in the US. In the sports section football is virtually ignored, even in 1994 when the FIFA World Cup was held in the US it doesn't get a mention. Similarly the TV and ads are all American. US users might find it brilliant, I couldn't judge, but a version for your own country would be much more interesting.
