Exciting and Engaging
I was very nervous to purchase this app after reading all the reviews mentioning performance woes, but decided to jump in and give it a shot (and support PBS in their efforts to bring Downton into the social media age). I was not disappointed. I ran this app on my iPad Mini and found no lag issues or crashes of any kind. The video played flawlessly after I allowed the buffer to fill the entire play length (as I do also with the Movie Trailers app). I also especially loved the sound and the overall look of the app. Haven't explored it enough to really say I have experienced all the content made available, but this is exactly what I wanted it to be. It will be a long wait till Season 4! Enjoy exploring the most incredible estate on television!
I was able to watch the season three preview, but whenever I tried to play any of the deleted scenes, my screen would freeze up and return to the home screen :( and when I try to open the app again, it takes me back to the main menu as if I hadn't tried watching any of the videos! I love the show and cant wait for the season 3 premiere but im kind of disappointed, please fix this problem!! :)
Amazing App, Essential for the True Fan
Great app, very enjoyable and seamless in use. I didn't experience any video issues as described in other reviews. I love all the behind the scenes content and the app itself is gorgeous and very user friendly. This is exactly what I needed to tide me over until series 3!
