Great concept - poor product
Wonderful concept and a must for anyone who grew up watching SNL, but the app is terribly buggy and rarely works properly. Videos start playing twice with a couple seconds delay making it impossible to listen to due to the audio overlap. Videos start playing without selecting any. When a video is selected it plays something completely different (really frustrating). These are some of the obvious ones.
Please fix these issues - it seems that the developers put out frequent updates (which is a good thing) but the updates seem to fix old bugs and introduce new ones. I can't imagine this app being overly complicated as far as the developers are concerned (basically a simple video archive) so for the life of me I can't fathom why after all this time (the app has been around for a while now) why it's still as bad as it is.
Fix it so it works properly and I won't hesitate to change my rating from 2 to 5 stars and I am sure folks like me, who have been a loyal fan of the show since the 70s, will do the same.
Great Concept Bad Product
I love SNL- so much in fact it’s hard for me to fall asleep watching sketches. I love the layout of this app and it’s so user friendly. SNL really pushes this app on air so I know a lot of work gets put into it. However the amount of bugs are unreal. It crashes in the middle of a sketch, it will play the same sketch at the same time only a few seconds off, and I’ll click on a sketch and it will take me to a different one. Please fix!
Does not handle amount of data
It’s not easy to find cast members old sketch online. I imagine NBC has the rights and has made sure we can only access them through this app. Unfortunately, it is very substandard and needs a lot of programming still to work smoothly.
