What's New in Version 1.14
Minor Bug Fixes; Adding new videos.
Love mythbusters, hate this app
I don't know how anyone can rate this app higher than two stars. Maybe they feel that they are being disloyal to mythbusters by giving it an honest rating. I am a loyal mythbusters fan, but no fan if this app. It is an expensive app with terribly cheap games and features that don't work reliably. Very often the videos don't work right, or at all. The games are terrible and they often lock up. None of these issues have been fixed by any update.
Aside from the games, you can get all the other content by liking mythbusters on Facebook. You will get all the same video links (and they work) and all the same news.
Other than the games, this app just contains Internet links. There are also no full episodes on here.
This was clearly just an attempt to throw something together and make a lot of money doing it.
Very disappointed. WASTE OF MONEY
Need network connection
Bought this app because it apparently has 300 minutes of video. However, when I click Sneak Peeks it says to return when I have a network connection. Sort of defeats the point of buying the app since we do not have a network connection for this ipod.
Oh yeah, and when I go to the App Support on the AppStore, it goes to a webpage that does not work. Convenient!
This App is pretty cool. But the schedule is from 2009. Update please
