What's New in Version 3.4.3
Needs picture in picture support
For the most part the app is great, it allows me to catch up on the Daily Show while riding the bus. My primary complaint would be the lack of picture in picture support. I like to watch the show while reading or checking email, now that requires my iPhone which means I'm distracted from the show. The volume of the Ads is also a bit distracting. I recently bought AirPods, and with the volume on full I still have troubles hearing the show, then when the ads start to play, well at full volume you can imagine it's not a great experience.
Other than that a few minor issues would be the small UI elements that makes it difficult to pause/resume playback. I'd love to see the rewind 30 second feature added, I'd also love to see tapping the screen to start and stop playback given the tiny UI elements.
I use the app 4 days a week which exacerbates the tiny flaws in the app. Additionally I now cringe anytime anyone says "detergent" as advertisers seem to think people who watch Comedy Central are in need of a good detergent, or we just smell, either or.
Great content / integrations :: not a joy to use
Look if you are here, you want CC's content if you are here and it's available and available immediately. It's wonderful, use it. You can steam on device and to ur casting devices.
When you do... If you never need to do more than play, u r still good.
However If you want to rewind or fast forward this is where the frustration lies. Why two stars off for that? Well because there are many UI enhancements that could be used here. To me simply not having the time in video the marker is when you slide is an awfully huge oversight in the user's experience. Even simply a "back 15 seconds" arrow. Imagine the frustration of having to blindly bounce into a video and watch 2 minutes of ads multiple times just to find where you left off. Makes me feel that the main use case has a sev 1/2 bug and shouldn't last more than one release.
Good but poor functionality
The good: this app allows you to stream Comedy Central content. It has a good selection and lots of older content so you can catch up on shows. The interface is intuitive and slick. Finding what you want is fairly simple. Overall it's a well made app and does what you want.
The bad: first, the ads. Look, I get content isn't free. I'm willing to ignore a few minutes of ads before watching the show I want. But do they have to be so much louder than the content? Seriously, my ears get blown out every time an ad comes up. You're actually working against your purpose by making them so loud, because now I'm just going to mute it and not pay any attention to them at all. Figure it out already.
Second: I REALLY love it when the app returns to content after the way too loud ads to an error that "This Content is No Longer Available." Thanks for making me sit though two minutes of ads just to have to restart the app and sit through them again. Really makes me appreciate your content there, CC.
Finally, the controls. Sometimes they're a bit unresponsive. Not sure how to improve this, maybe make them larger or put the pause button center screen. Also, a 15 or 30 second skip button would be nice.
