What's New in Version 3.8.41
- Bug fixes
Won't get 5 stars because of the price. Otherwise, I simply do not understand the complaints. I made a one time purchase for iPhone. Just bought an iPad Air 2 and added it to the same Apple account and boom! The app installed automatically on the iPad with no additional fee. If Slingbox, or any other product that relies on a high speed connection and computer or other device, does not work, then the problem is the connection, device, or the user, or some combination of the the three. Let the resident geek in the family borrow it and do some troubleshooting. I have an SB100 that is still working after 10 years! Family in the Philippines have used it. Just bought the M1 and it is superb. Cutting edge products.
Was happy, now I'm sad
I wanted to give it 5 stars I really did. Everything was fine before this last update. I was even ok with it occasionally disconnecting saying to check my network connection, I would close the app and go back in and it would be fine (annoying but fine). Buuuut since this last update I can't cast to my chromecast anymore! I keep getting (2 unable to connect) error message. I just wanna cast my shows instead of having to watch them on my phone/iPad. Otherwise amazing idea. Amazing app. And not a bad deal for the price, yes even the app price ( side note no quality is lost is you use the iPhone app on your iPad. No need to pay twice.)
Works well with my 6 plus
I've been happy with this app. I'm dropping a star because of the fee to use on each device and it isn't nominal. But it does what it is supposed to and is reliable for me. It allows me to watch tv on my iPad in the kitchen and on my iPhone anywhere. Note that if your signal is weak or doesn't stream fast enough, you'll have issues but that is a phone service issue.
Want: I wish I could record the stream and view later. I would pay extra for that in this app for use on flights.
