What's New in Version 2.30.1
Improvements and bug fixes for iOS 8
You want people to pay for this? Seriously?
I don't understand why the ADS PLAY FLAWLESSLY but the actual content is virtually UNWATCHABLE due to freezing and skipping. Then you have to watch the ads all over again if you cancel out and try to resume where you left off...and then after you watch the ads all over again the whole app freezes. It is a joke. And it's not just this version of the app (iOS), but most versions of the app. As bad as this version of the app is, the PS3/PS4 version is even worse. It's just seems like Crunchyroll as a company is a total mess. Their complete silence and indifference on the matter is both baffling and disheartening. I have absolutely ZERO problems with any other streaming services, but Crunchyroll....man...I don't know what the heck happened at Cruchyroll HQ to make them think that people deserve this kind of service. I feel especially bad for the people that actually paid for a subscription to Crunchyroll and are sitting there dumbfounded that a broken streaming app is still a thing in 2015.
Crunchyroll is borderline fraud. They take people's time and money and do not provide the services they said they would provide. Steer as FAR AWAY from Crunchyroll as you possibly can and hope that maybe Netflix or some other streaming service will pick up the anime you want to watch. Waiting for that is better than the frustration and heartache you'll encounter trying to use this garbage app.
Too Many Bugs and Ads
In the beginning I did watch many anime on this app. I was really happy, because I hadn't a site or app I could watch any anime on! Though, whenever I tried to skip the (usually 1 to 2 minute) opening, it would freeze and play three ads that I had already watched. And if I had accidentally clicked the wrong episode or anime, I would have to wait through 2 to 5 minutes of ads before I could go to the right episode. And currently happening to me is that I cannot even open the app. I started to use the app to know when new episodes of my favorite anime were. Now I can't even use it for that! It now tells me that "Error The Request Timed Out Retry" And every time I click retry, the same thing happens. And I'm not going to pay to be able to watch anime on this app when it barely works anyways. (And I'm talking about not the apps, but how much it freezes and the fact that when I skip the opening, it messes everything up and ruins the sound.) Don't think I'm going to pay for this app, so that there will be no ads and I can get episodes the day of (Even though I could just go to another site and watch it without paying for it. And without ads and WAY better quality.) So, if you maybe fix the big bugs and make the ads fewer, I might download this app again, just maybe.
Good but needs some refining
As a long time user of this app I can say it works incredibly well most of the time. However around the latest release Crunchyroll was under DDoss attack. Most likely this is what caused all of the lag and skips that many have complains about in recent reviews. These passed few days I have no longer been experiencing the lag or skipping. Though I have run into one nuisance. Many times my queue will not sync correctly after finishing an episode. This has been my only recent problem, but I am sure the crunchyroll team is already working on this.
This app is very good for the anime lover. It has many shows to choose from and can keep you updated with many of the latest simulcast shows. If you are not a premium member yes there will be a lot of ads. Eventually you will get used to it, and I see them as fine since I can watch the content for free. If you have a problem with ads Crunchyroll has a few plans that can easily accommodate your anime needs. I give this app a 4 out of 5 for being reliable a majority of the time. Bugs are usually fixed quite fast and hiccups that do occur do not happen very often.
