What's New in Version 2.5.0
• Miscellaneous improvements and bug fixes
Needs more organization
I've been using the months for 2 months now and it has a few minor issues that all have to do with the organization and convince of the app. One of them is that if if you do not finish whatever you're watching---when you come back to the app, it will replay from the very beginning. However, sometimes this was NOT a problem. It just simply continued where I left off. Another issue is that it does not have a "Continue Watching" or "Watch History", so I had to search for what I was watching every single time I closed the app. I did experience some connection problems, or what I thought to be connection problems such as my entertainment being very rudely interrupted by a blank screen with the audio still available in the background or freezing up. Also, it sometimes took a long time for my entertainment to load. I found that I had a much more pleasant and/or near-perfect experience when connected to high speed internet. Other than this I had no other problems. Even these never frustrated once. I simply reloaded the app or fast-forwarded through what I was watching to find where I left off.
Expires your 1 month trial instantly
I have not written an app review before but this one was worth it. I tried to register for an account by pressing the 1 month free trial. I input my email and password. Then when I clicked create it prompted me to input my Apple ID password. I did not know it. Tried to click the home button to access another app which contains my password. The home button would not let me out of the app. I could only click cancel and okay. Clicking okay told me I put in an incorrect password which was true because I had not entered the password I did not know. Clicking cancel butted me back to the home screen of the HBO app. Before retrying I went and viewed my Apple ID password to make sure this did not happen again however when I went to create the account it said my email was already taken. I tried the log in option instead of the sign up option. It let me log into the account I just created. However, I cannot watch any content. It says my HBO account must be renewed. Where did my one month free trial go? That wasn't a month that was 5 minutes.
Worst app ever
Being a HBO fan, I was shocked by how awful this app is. Especially the login authentication process. I've had two horrible experiences so far.
1. Last year, when Game of Thrones started streaming, I decided to give the free 1-month subscription a try, so I did. Downloaded the app, and started the subscription, then signed in before the season started, what do you know I cannot sign in, unknown error. And I got spoiled all over.
2. Now this year, it happened AGAIN. Just when I'm ready to stream the finale of season 7, it firstly complained that some error has occurred, then when I tried streaming it through my browser, I got this "too many devices streaming". I honestly have no idea why their system is written this way. When subscribers desperately trying to sign in to watch your content, you lock them out? And after I called the technical customer service, they told me that I can only wait for 30mins for the system to unlock me. They cannot do anything to override this.
Seriously, I paid for the streaming service and got locked out right before the finale.
