Buggiest app on my phone
I'm a PBS subscriber and fan but this app doesn't live up to its content. When the app manages to initialize properly it is still a toss up whether I can find the content I'm looking for and then whether I can actually play it.
The app sorts content in the most illogical way. The search is nearly useless. The UX displays program information so poorly that often I can't tell which episode it is showing without actually clicking through. Which often crashes the app. I constantly have to remind the app which station is my station. It sometimes mysteriously takes me to the website when I'm entering my Watchlist items. And the website again prompts me to login.
If the same team is responsible for both the app and the streaming website then both need to start over from scratch. It's been bad for a couple of years and it is only getting worse.
Would be 5 star but it glitches
Have constant issues w/ my watchlist. A few shows / episodes seem to be "stuck" on my watchlist, trying to view those shows / episodes freezes the app. Am unable to remove them or view them & anything I've added after I put those shows on my watchlist isn't visible. Have deleted & reinstalled the app a few times, rebooted & reset phone, etc with no luck. It's frustrating because I love pbs & really would enjoy using this app if this issue could be fixed. I have looked on pbs site & on app support for this app on itunes store.... no luck. Pbs, I know y'all are on a limited budget, but please help fix this issue. Might get more support / donations if the app worked better = more viewers = more $.
PBS I hope you do realize that off all the network apps out there yours is among the best. I have for 2 yrs used PBS app it works period!!
I have been to the moon and back today realizing that the app is available on iTV thank you.
For a public television that operates on donations and charity gifts you certainly set your network apart and stand as giant in my book. Thanks for educating me and my family with the great programs you feature.
