This is one major B/S app
They got the ability to make an app that is user friendly, but they chose to make one that pisses people off. And when they complain about it choose to say they are sorry an that they are gonna talk to their designer and get the problems fixed. But I haven't seen them do CRAP!!! I and just about everybody else that DL this crappy app have complained before about several problems and not one of them has been fixed.
- The main problem that I have is not being able to rewind or fast forward just a couple of seconds. There's no ff or rw arrows. I gotta slid my finger an pray that I only go back the couple of seconds I wanna go and not go back 5-10 mins.
- The unskable adds. I can handle the 15-30 second adds but when ya throw in a 3 min add that can't be skipped, that's some BS. And yes I do get 3 min add when the show gets to y'all mark for the adds.
- There are numerous other complaints. Some about the app not workin and others about various other stuff. An all of them A/S people said they are gonna fix an they haven't.
Really!?! Forced Vertical!?!
When I use one of my devices as a television (whether iPhone, iPad4 or iPadPro) doesn't it make sense that I would use it horizontally oriented?! And doesn't it seem logical that I might even have devised a way to hold/mount/hang/clamp said device in that orientation for hands-off, eye-level viewing comfort?! Now imagine if every time you wanted to use the on-screen show guide or settings on your television, the screen turned sideways. Would that be acceptable? Or would you not only question the developer's coding ability, but also their ability to think clearly about absolutely anything.
George Carlin once said, " Consider just how stupid the average person is, and then realize that means half the population is even dumber than that." Don't get me wrong; Adult Swim content is great; but the fatal flaws in this app certainly raise the question of which side of that "average" line the geniuses the developed this app reside on. How hard can it be to keep the orientation under device-control?! Sheesh! moronic at best.
It used to work, now it doesn't!
Before this last update, I could stream the live simulcast all night without any issues. Since this update, I can maybe watch five minutes of the live simulcast before it goes black with a "reload video" error. I can't use this app any more even though I still try, and I'm hardly watching any adult swim now, which is leaving me incomplete and empty inside.
I am using an original iPad Pro, and I have done everything I could, from installing the most recent software update to deleting and reinstalling the app. My wifi signal is very decent and I have no other problems with any other streams. Yet with all of this, I will have the app go black and say "reload video" at least twice in a thirty minute window. There's also always issues with video and voice lag not stacking up, or no video and just sound. Commercials are never smooth either and will randomly jump back and forth.
