Ratings and Reviews
Can’t even contact support
I used to have a premium membership about a year ago and decided to renew. I wanted to buy the standard premium membership again but it says on the app that they will give me a 14 day free trial and charge me for the membership after the trial ends, not a problem, I was actually happy about this. The problem is that the trial doesn’t even work. I check my iTunes subscriptions and it says that it is currently active but when I go into the app to watch a show, I still have to watch ads! That’s not even the worst part, whenever the ads start to load, I get a black loading screen, then it just freezes up and won’t do anything unless I force close out of the app. I can’t even watch a video with ads!!! I tried to just buy the membership outright without the 14 day trial since I was going to pay for it anyway, but I can’t get past the 14 day trial offer. Whenever you tap on the button to upgrade your account, it takes you to the 14 day free trial offer( which doesn’t work no matter how many times I retry it) and it won’t let me bypass the offer so I can just buy the membership, it’s like they don’t want my money! I tried contacting support on the “help” section in the app, AND SURPRISE SURPRISE THE APP FREEZES WHEN YOU TRY TO GET TO THE “CONTACT US” PART! I used to love watching my favorite anime on crunchyroll but I don’t think I’ll ever be paying for this service again after spending hours just trying to buy a membership unsuccessfully.
Lots of issues.
The business has to support itself, therefore it needs ads, nothing you can do about it, need to pay there employees and the anime that they give to us. Completely fine with that, you don’t see Netflix doing that. But. Unless you are a paid member, the app is like a last resolution. I have been using Crunchyroll for 6 years now. The ads don’t play. I click on the episode and the screen goes black! Unacceptable. You make money off of people watching your ads, yet they won’t play. The most disappointing part is that they don’t, and haven’t solved this issue. I have contacted support, and they don’t do anything. “Reload” can’t do that with a black screen. Then they decided to disable the support outlet for no paid users. What am I supposed to do? This app doesn't work! And it hasn’t worked for weeks! I’m tired of this, and they are not fixing it and ignoring it! If I have to reload the app 20+ times, delete the app then reinstall it, contact support for them not to help me, go to comments to see if they can help, sign in and out of my account, delete some of my queues, then this app is not worth it to me if it doesn’t work in the first place. I hate to give this review, but if this is going to help get the work out for me and the many other people that have this issue, then I’m sorry. I really hope you can solve this issue. Once these bug have been solved, only then will I use your app again. A little tired of this issue being overlooked.
Useless unless you pay
I honestly wish I could give it less than 1 star. I’ve only been using the app for three days and I have given up. I understand that the app works fine if you pay for a subscription, however, developers should understand that not everyone can afford to pay a monthly fee just to watch anime. If they’re going to offer a free alternative and make you watch ads to compensate, the least they could do is make sure the free version actually works- otherwise just don’t offer it! Don’t make people waste their time! The first day this app worked great- I don’t care if I have to watch ads or even if the ads repeat. I understand it’s free so I don’t mind it. However, yesterday, I started to notice that the app freezes whenever an ad is about to play- the screen goes black and that’s it. There is nothing you can do but exit the app and restart it. Initially this only happened a few times, but now it’s to the point I can’t even START watching an episode because it freezes. I can restart the app 12 times (which I have), and it does the exact same thing each time. I’m done. I’m done using this app, wasting my time and dealing with this frustration. And now, even if I could or wanted to, there is NO WAY I’m ever going to give my money to Crunchyroll. If you’re going to give a free service and make it as crappy as possible just to get people to buy the subscription- don't even offer it to begin with. It’s low, a cheap trick. Just don’t.
