What's New in Version 7.3.0
good thing there is no competition
More of the same (see previous review below)
App is free, I.e. Grossly over-priced. Slow, buggy, inconsistent performance, except of course for being slow & buggy. Mind numbingly slow on an iphone 7. I wish there was a zero rating.
This is review of the current version. iPad II is unusable with this version. I am now using the 3rd Generation of the iPad Mini or my iPhone 6s. This version crashes less a little frequently, but still hangs up or crashes about every 10 minutes. I rated it two stars before, but that was generous. Given that this is a new version, comparing it to HBOGo & Netflix performance a one star is rating is only because there isn't a zero rating.
I called Dish and they blamed everything on network connection, Network USB incompatibility (I am using the USB Dish provided.
Bottom line: this app is so bad, it possibly could push me to Comcast.
Slow to launch, Slow to respond to the skip ahead function, skip ahead is about 40 seconds, skip rewind either does not rewind at all or about 5 seconds with multiple clicks, i.e. rewind just pauses with one click & starts exactly where you left off. You need to click at least three times to rewind about8 seconds.
App crashes once in awhile or locks ups. You need to quit the app & relaunch. Replay where you left off works most of the time.
Might work better on a newer iPad. I have a 64 GB iPad II.
Dish On top
We have have had Dish for approx. 30 years and over that time we have made brief pauses in attempts to try other cable carriers. Bottom line is that we have always come back to Dish. The only reason that I did not rate them higher was I've always felt that everything has room for improvement and Dish is no different> There are things that could be improved always however, compared to all of the others ( and I think Ive tried everyone else out there that was available to us) for the money, Dish is the best in our opinion.
We use this app quite a bit when traveling. What is great about it is that it even works with DSL! We also are able to set recordings, delete recordings while traveling. It is great to use on the deck if your wireless is strong enough. Our DSL is able to hold the connection without any issues.
