I've been using this app for a couple years now. In the beginning, it was okay. My home bandwidth does not allow me to use the 'anywhere' features of the app so I primarily use it as my channel guide. Unfortunately, that small, simple aspect of the app is the most frustrating and becomes more and more useless with each update. Why do I want to see 7pm programming when it is 8pm? Why are 9pm shows listed in the 8pm time blocks? Can't be that difficult to correct these things. Are the updates even tested before being released? Does anyone at DISH actually use this app? I'll be switching to cable TV shortly so hopefully this becomes a non-issue for me but for now, sub-standard at best.
Frustrated and Disappointed!!
I am so disappointed that I was unable to connect my iPad mini to my sling. After an hour of trying everything I can think of, I still kept getting the error message saying to check the Internet connection on the sling. The connection to my sling is fine as I had no issues testing that. After all the problems I've had with the sling losing reception for ABSOLUTELY NOTHING!! You would think this application would work. I hope you get it fixed ASAP!!!!
It's BACK!!!!! or is it??
Update: well dish still doesn't improve the remote control features. I mean how hard is it to make it so the full remote shows up instead of having to switch between the keypad, D-Pad and control pad
So apparently dish doesn't like customer feedback on their apps. So excuse me dish if you want to continually present a crappy app like the Dish Explorer and why add the full remote the Dish Anywhere app is such a hard thing considering this feature is offered on the Dish Explorer app I'll never know
