What's New in Version 3.1.1
Small bug fixes
App with identity crisis
Crunchyroll publishes awesome anime. But the app has an identity crisis. Login with a paid subscriber account and everything works great. Five stars. Seriously. It is very well done. But — and this is huge — not everyone can afford the monthly fees and the execution of the advertising ruins the app. No stars. Crunchyroll needs the advertising to fund the delivery of no-cost anime to its free subscribers. It is the TV broadcasting business model. No problem. But the technology used to insert the ads fails to match the quality of the overall app. The ads lock up the app. They also repeat themselves three times in a row in the same ad break. And while the ads are supposed to be targeted to the interests of the viewers, they are not. If Crunchyroll could get the advertising to work correctly, advertising could possibly make more money per user than paid subscriptions. Determining the interests of viewers is pretty easy. You just ask them. Do interesting ads and people will click them. Streaming technology is good enough to never lock up an app. And never repeat ads during the same break. I will never buy a Volvo no matter how many times you run the ad. I'm a Subaru guy. You should already know that. Have Subaru tell me about its awesome technology and I will click the ad to find out more info. Everyone wins — Crunchyroll, advertisers and anime fans. Fix it please.
App Functionality Bad
I can’t really complain about having free anime. I love being able to stream animes that I enjoy on the go. The biggest problem I have with the app, is the ads frequently cause the anime to freeze or discontinue and I have to restart it. Another problem I have noticed is if I exit the application leaving it open, just leaving the page to go to the home screen, the app itself freezes and will continue the current episode and I have to start from the beginning. This is very frustrating as I have to rewatch all the ads to continue the show.I have a job where sometimes I get 10 to 15 minutes to relax and I enjoy watching anime. Having to restart the episode every time after I have to pause is very frustrating and almost triples the amount of ads I have to watch. I am totally in support that I have to watch ads because it’s a free service but they need to fix the system so that way I can leave the app and continue watching my show without rewatching all the ads x3, it’s a huge problem.
Great anime poor app
I've been a crunchyroll member for years now. And with that I pay for the service so that I can watch episodes straight through without ads as I'm sure thousands upon thousands of others do as well. So being a PAYING customer I'd expect better service than what is offered. The app crashes constantly, there are always server issues, they even put out prompts whenever a new episode of a popular anime comes out that the app may crash. Like seriously, they really really need to put funds building their infrastructure to meet the demands of their expanding customer base. If you built a town with a main one lane highway going through it to accommodate your few hundred residents but then a few years pass and now your town has thousands of residents, do you keep that highway how it is? Or do you add more lanes to accommodate more people? A pretty simple issue to fix yet for about a year now more and more people sign up and they haven't done a thing so the issues are worse and more frequent.
