No Chromecast, search is odd...
I downloaded this app the other day and while I'm really excited by the selections and how fast the videos came up for me, I'm incredibly disappointed that I can't cast them to my tv. I have a free weekend and was planning on doing some binging but I'm not going to do it on my IPad. I could see using this when I travel or an occasional viewing of a show here and there, but not for full seasons or more than one movie. Also I found the browsing a bit odd and only found a couple of things by catching the bar of similar suggested titles. Again, I'm real new to this app, so I'm sure I'll get the hang of that part. But I did see other reviews mentioning the search interface. All that said, I am looking forward to using this...but please let us cast from this. Thank you.
Major audio issues and freezing while watching a show
First, let me say I don't want to give the app any less than 3 stars because it has been flawless up to this point. But for the last couple of days, I wouldn't even give it 1 star. It will not allow me to watch more than 3 minutes or so of any episode or movie on any network (wifi or data) without the audio either being a corrupted consistent humming sound that is super annoying or no sound at all. Also when you try to pause, rewind, or fast forward a bit, then hit play the video freezes but the time goes on like it is playing. When these issues get fixed, I'll change to a 5 star review because the design and functionality of the app are fantastic normally.
Downloads UI week
I'm writing to complain that the UI for downloaded videos frustratingly lists items that aren't downloaded. Also, not a good UI for kids. Example: I've downloaded three episodes of curious George. Go to downloads there is a big icon showing curious george three downloads from season one. Click that icon and every episode of season one is listed with just a check mark identifying the downloaded episodes. I'm in the downloaded items page of the UI. Why do I need to see the non downloaded shows listed??? I can't hand the iPad to a three year old and expect him to be able to know which episodes are available to watch.
Also, it seems like downloading speed is throttled vs direct streaming speeds.
