Ratings and Reviews
Failed to communicate to server.
This is a review of the most recent app as of October 4, 2017. I am running iOS 11.0.1 on an iPhone 7plus.
The app does not function properly. After years of appreciating and deriving much value from the PLI Mobile app, albeit with an antiquated UI, my phone/app combo fails consistently to “communicate with server.” To be clear the app opens and allows me to access the login screen, but I am unable to successfully submit any data.
It is not an issue with my password. I have spoken with the PLI Mobile support line and had that reset. It appears as if the issue is a matter of connectivity. The above quoted error message pops up instantaneously.
It is not an issue with enabling cellular data for the app. I have checked that.
My best guess is that the app doesn’t operate properly with iOS 11. But I’m not a software engineer and welcome any advice or correction. If the error is mine I will withdraw this review gladly.

New look and great improvements
I really love the new app! The overall redesign is great and I think that there are some great improvements to how I can find things. I'm looking forward to what other enhancements they come out with soon.
New to program
I primarily wanted to use it for mobile access (not streaming). I have not been able to get any of the mobile downloads to play on my iPhone (iOS 11), but have been able to get it to stream and play on my iPad (iOS 10). Is this a known bug?
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
