What's New in Version 4.1.7
- Minor bug fixes and improvements
Not horrible, but deserves 1 star
This app could potentially be great, but as it stands is not worth my time. Unfortunantly I am deleting it, but I will be optimistic that by 2016 it will be a good app. The interface is the main problem along with limited shows per season. If they could atleast have the complete current season and pay like 10 dollars for every season other than the one currently airing the app would be fine. The interface is garbage they need to completly redo it. It's just too complicated, they should have like 3 different tabs:
Featured. Favorites. Live Tv.
They need to add live tv in all areas and soon, because that's very important. They also need to add the capability to vote for people like on dwts. For shows that aren't live ads are fine if there's two commercials in every commercial break. Pop ups are horrible. And like I said again it would be nice if they had every show for the current season for free and like for the show "What would you do," to have all let's say 16 episodes for the season for free, but for seasons 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 you pay 9.99 per season, but for season six (the current one, or the last one aired) you pay for. Please Abc Make this an amazing application! It has amazing potential. 1 star currently, but I made it 2 stars, because I think this could be a 4, or even a 5 star app. So abc PLZ!
Still a terrible app after all this time
I gave this app a bad review when it first came out and am giving it one star now because I can't give it zero. App crashes so much that it's impossible to watch an hour show without restarting the app 7-8 times, and each time it doesn't give you credit for the 4 out of 5 ads you just watched before it crashed, so you have to watch all five ads again and then it invariably, truly invariably crash again. ABC is touting some series that are in watchathon status right now so I decided to give one a try, but the episodes will expire in five days and I haven't been able to even get through one episode a day for the last three days. Shame on you ABC for putting out such a crappy app. It's never worked well and has been a source of frustration all along with the crashing. If ABC is trying to increase revenue by selling episodes then I guess this might be a plan because they certainly aren't viewable with this app even with deletes and reinstalls. You are losing viewers ABC. It's just too much trouble anymore.
Lags and crashes
Will crash during one of the 5 commercials I have to watch...then I get to watch them all over again when I reopen the app. Annoying enough that we have to watch the same 3-5 commercials over and over, but when it takes longer than an hour to watch an hour long show because of how often the app crashes...unacceptable. Not to mention, I cannot watch a show until it's been a week or more longer since it ran. Cable and satellite are too expensive for what you get (ie: 3 networks over the "public television networks" that you actually want) so I go to an HD antenna and now have to constantly wait for the shows I actually want to see.
