Great App! Room for improvement ;)
I am so happy to see that they have made an app for this wonderful product. So far it runs excellently!
However, for the next update I recommend allowing the user to operate the application with the phone right-side up. Having it constantly in landscape mode makes it difficult to navigate.
Additionally, it would be nice to have articles to read directly from the application! Personally I would love to have the option to both read and watch :)
Thanks so much for everything you guys do, I truly appreciate it :)
As a blind user, I was very surprised and pleased to find that this app was actually usable with VoiceOver. I am very greatful for this, because listening to my favorite Gaiam shows just can't always be congruent with sitting at the computer.
With that said, I still think there is a lot to be done with the app, on the accessibility front and otherwise.
One small point is that there are many buttons around the app that are not labeled, and there are others that have cluttered "over-labeling."
To have this make a little more sense, VoiceOver will read: "Search button button" if the button was named "Search Button," so it only would need to be named "Search." Little things like that. I won't go too far into that here, but I might write another review in the future regarding accessibility.
Overall, I am really enjoying the app, and would like to thank Gaiam for always putting out excellent content.
Good start, but….
Playback is good, but navigation is terrible. There is no way to find a series, host, program in a way similar to the website. You have to scroll through large icon lists in no particular order, vs following a link to a series, and easy access to episodes.
Needs some work, given that people will be watching and listening on portable devices that are less easily navigated than a desktop. Should be easier to get to where you want, not harder.
