What's New in Version 1.3
Updated icon and Discovery graphics, bug fixes
Was Great - Now Full of Unskippable Ads
Can't watch videos without watching movie trailers (which aren't suitable for kids). The app just began doing this, though it isn't mentioned. Hacky move by Discovery, not surprising if you've watched recent programming. Skip this formerly great app.
Paid $18 right when it came out. It's now free. Almost want my money back, except the version I bought (no longer on the App Store) has no ads, which is phenomenal.
This app is cool
