This app works, but could be better.

I've been using this app for a while, and I like the fact that it make it easy to keep watching your favorite anime series, without skipping videos by accident or forgetting which video is next. Now, my biggest problem with this app is that, in my queue, I have listed a few old anime series that I have no problem watching on a PC, but I can't watch them on an iPhone or iPad because they just don't appear on my queue, and they also aren't listed in the app. In my naiveness, I tried accessing Crunchyroll using Safari and Chrome, hoping I could be able watch the missing series there, but the stupid thing won't let me watch anything and keeps urging me to download the app. For that reason I'm giving this app just two stars. I mean, I understand that maybe the app doesn't have enough room for all the anime series they have listed on the PC version, but why isn't there another way to access those anime series on Crunchyroll on the IPhone and iPad? I have Premium membership and it frustrates me not to be able to watch all the anime I want :(

There are many major updates required

Crunchy roll has a wide variety of many new shows, but none are the classics. For example, I searched up "Dragon Ball Z" and nothing turned up. Also, while I was watching an episode, incredibly annoying ads were popping up. And most of the time they were the same over and over. It drives me insane when there's a black screen right before the ads. I ultimately refuse to purchase premium out of annoyance. I only buy something when I think it's worth it. Crunchy roll premium is NOT worth it. I hope that in the future they can stop with so many ads and bring back the amazing classics. Although they have extremely good clarity and easy to see movement in each episode, there is one more thing I have to discuss. When I put in "english" as both subtitle and language, it is Japanese. I have to constantly look down to see what the people are saying and then back up again to see what's going on. Then, a few minutes after that, BOOM! AN ADD! I think there are multiple things crunchy roll needs to improve.

Black screen?

Until May 14, crunchyroll worked just fine. I logged out last night because it's my habit. Tune in today to find ads don't load and I can't watch anything. I'm practically begging for ads to play again. Even then I'll get five or ten back to back and get about five seconds of a show before another ad. Is there something wrong with the service? It worked great, then y'all broke it. Until its fixed into working order, one star is my rating.

Edit: As of the 22nd it seemed to work despite now viewing 5 or 6 ads vs. 3 before. Not experiencing any new bugs. But having it not working was irritating. Bumped rating by two stars.

Edit: May 22nd, and it failed to let me resume my place on a show. I get one ad and then the notorious black screen. I might as well watch from an in-browser point because this app needs a metric load of garbage dumped on it to make me give it more attention than it's worth. Steer far away from this app on a mobile device. It's not worth the time unless they get off their butts and fix what they broke.
