Great idea, poor implementation
If this app just worked I would give it a glowing five stars. The streaming software (for down loading) in the app is just crap. If you're attempting to download a show The app regularly just gives up. This is true even when you're connected to a high-quality network with no latency with the iPad sitting next to the router. Once you step out of the house or gets worse. You'll regularly get failure notices, things will download for 20 seconds and quit. Remotely even getting the guide to be quite the challenge. But strangely enough, if you can get the schedule to load, and you don't attempt to download the file but just stream it even remotely it works pretty consistently, for hours at a time. This confirms its NOT a network issue. Attempt to download the show you just streamed on the same network and the app will fail within minutes or even seconds. The specified functionality of this app is wonderful, the execution is disastrous.
WTH! no zoom (& fixed in zoom mode) or volume control
This has to be one of the most frustrating apps around because of the promise it has to be great (if it would only deliver on a fraction of the things it should do).
Do you even do quality control or bother with user testing? Instead, you remove the zoom function (which would be fine if you didn't permanently stick in zoom mode so I can't see the full screen) & remove the volume control (in favor of cc????)
Shows don't download properly (& I frequently get errors when I try to play them) & the 'remote ' access is a joke...can't remember the last time it actually worked (even just to delete a show I had watched offline).
What happened to VOLUME SLIDER?? 😁
I see some improvements to the APP with latest update but the MISSING "impossible to live without" VOLUME CONTROL makes it really hard to appreciate anything else. You do realize that most of us have to turn our iPads around and fumble for the volume buttons on the sides....and while doing that either stop the program, advance it, rewind it or add closed captioning!!! Very frustrating. Somebody dropped the ball here. Put the volume control back....STAT!! Thank you!! Then I will give you the 5 stars you deserve.
