Ratings and Reviews
Do not install this.
By far the worst player app on the ‘store. It’s really just a drm protection proprietary player for copywritten content, and it’s messed up very badly. I would say that any vendor who uses it is only doing so because it is one of the cheapest available options, I have been going around with their tech support for a full month. They keep asking the same questions over and over and take no action to fix the problem. Airplay does not work for my iPad to my Apple TV. I have used airplay from multiple sources all over the Internet on all kinds of websites and had zero problems streaming it from my iPad to my Apple TV. It is this player and only this player that is unable to do this. I would advise them to completely re-write this player and stop making it available for download until the problems have been ironed out. I think the content providers who use this player should drop it.
Not so great
I use this app to watch shows from my Gaia subscription offline. I don’t have trouble with the downloads, but I can’t get them out of my library even after I delete them, which means I have to sort through shows that aren’t even on my device. The online instructions do not match up to the screens that are available on the app either. I contacted purple support and they said they could delete the shows if I would send them my registered email. I did and then I got crickets from them. No further response from “Jennie” at tech support and the shows are still there. Terrible app. Terrible customer service.
I purchased a video learning series for my kids and purchased the digital files so they can watch during road trips. We’ve been attempting to use this app and all it does is crash. It cannot play a video over WiFi and continuously crashes while downloading video files.
I agree with others that this app has the potential to be as good as they claim but at this point it’s just a waste of my time and space on my iPad.
Platform Purple Inc did a great job of swindling these partner companies into relying on them to be resourceful for their clients.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
