No more wifi only!!!
I always really enjoyed using this app, it is easy to navigate, I have no playback issues and it's crashed once in the several months I have used it. My only problem with the app was the wifi only restriction, something that really limited our use of the app outside the house. I loved to see this morning when I went to update and saw they removed the wifi only!! That was the only thing holding me back from a 5 star review, and as soon as I tested that it worked as described, I wrote this immediately after. Great app!
Finally this app is useful with the addition of streaming via your data plan.
One of my favorite places for using this app is at the gym while doing cardio (anything to distract me while doing cardio is good) but the gym's crappy WiFi made it impossible to get through a movie. AT&T's LTE service is 1000 times better than the gym's WiFi so now I can use this again. Look for a slimmer me in the future!
Wifi requirement gone!
Removing the wifi requirement has made great improvements on how/when I can use this app.
Unfortunately, it is not working well. The audio stream continues perfects, but the video will randomly start from the beginning. Further, this app crashed my phone and forced a restart.
Additionally, the entire video will download, but the app will report that it cannot continue until the connection improves. If the video has downloaded, what is keeping the video from functioning?
