Ratings and Reviews
This app is great idk what everyone is ranting about!
Guys you didn't buy this app because it's a free bonus feature added on with your tv subscription. For me it's easy to log onto HBO and the tv verification process is faster then typing in all the info on a tv clicker which can be tedious sometimes. It's a waste of HBO's viable time and money to add on a search bar under the service providers panel. This app might not be so easy for older generations, but for me it works almost flawlessly. I can watch The Sopranos with no problems and I'm a happy camper overall. Think of the bigger picture guys, if this was HBO Now I would somewhat agree with the general audience, but, due to the generosity of HBO giving us this app as a bonus, be thankful. I wasn't payed to write this if you think I was un bias. These reviews probably do nothing anyways because people always will continue to download the app and my review was probably a waste of my time personally.
Good Sh... Stuff! Kinda...
It does what I needed to do, looks nice, and functions as well as the PS3-version of the app. More than satisfied when watching on the device that launched the app.
The functionality with Chromecast, however, is quite poor.
1. Why is the little carrot-arrow the ONLY part of the minimized controls that will maximize to the full control screen?
2. Why do items that are hidden or obstructed visually by the minimized control bar, seem to always have touch preference? I tap any of the mini controls, especially that nearly untappable carrot-arrow, and the app starts playing whatever happened to be underneath. And, when that happens, what I was trying to watch is not available under "continue watching", so I must find it again; restarting from the beginning.
3. Why do the 10-second skip controls persist while casting? Have you ever used other casting apps? The rest convert their 10-second skip controls to 30-second skip when casting. Every control executes after a buffering delay, except pause and (resume) play. So, it takes about 5 seconds to execute a 10-second skip OR a 30-second skip. To put it in perspective, a 30-second skip would be equally frustrating if it takes 15 seconds to execute. And, if a 10-second skip takes 15 seconds to execute, your app should either have a drug habit, or be traveling near the speed of causality (a.k.a. the speed of light).
Yay TV App Integration!
I used to have HBO Now as a subscription from iTunes, but a while back I got HBO free with DirecTV NOW, so I had to switch over to HBO Go. I was totally disappointed that the HBO Go app wasn’t integrated with the TV app from Apple. Well, I just recently checked HBO Go again, and it is integrated with Apple’s TV app now!
The only reason I didn’t give 5 stars is because when I am in the TV app and I find HBO content, I click the content and I am taken to the content in HBO Go, and I have to click play in HBO Go to start the movie or show. In HBO Now, if I find HBO content in the TV app, I just click it and I am taken to HBO Now and the movie just starts playing. Basically, HBO Go needs to integrate with Apple’s TV app just like HBO Now does.
However, things are functional. A movie or show watched adds to Up Next in the TV app and everything works just fine. Just fix that one little issue and I’ll go up to five stars.
