Customer Reviews


It is weird to read other people rating this app after what they would like it to be, instead of for what it is intended to be, and what it does. Rating the actual app, and add recommrndations/suggestions would work better, I think.

It does exactly was it is supposed to do, so I know what to expect, and I'm never disappointed. I catch up early the following day with whatever episode I missed, which helps me to engage in any conversation regarding my favorite shows: usually "Flash," "Arrow," "Vixen," (CW Seed; five mins. are not enough!!!!), "Supernatural," and "The Originals."

SUGGESTION: Instead of following almost the same story line owned by DC Comics, and written decades ago, you should negotiate with DC and develop (for Flash, or Arrow, for example) a complete-logical season based on the best comments people make on Fan Talk, or write. This would not only keep the the program going, but would open the possibilities ti the unexpected. Since we're talking about parallel Earths and dimensions, this might be a good moment to think about it.

Keep the Improvements Coming, Please

In the past, I would have to scrub forward over and over to get to the part of an episode that I wanted to see again, watching a minute and a half or more of commercials every time I did. I'm glad that the developers have improved this app so that I can now "fast forward" to a specific part of an episode that I want to watch again without having to watch commercials repeatedly. I hope the developers continue making improvements, so that the commercials start at the right time. As it is now, the commercials start NEAR the end of a scene, and when the show continues, I see the very end of the previous scene before the new scene starts. That's annoying. Fix that issue and I will give this app 5 stars.

My number 1 App for most shows I watch

There was a time when this app would hang up during commercials. But I have had zero problems with this season's versions, and have loved being able to watch my favorite shows. Release times for the shows are good. Being in Hawaii I still miss any live tweet or Facebook events with the show because release time is still based on region apparently. I can still see the feeds, but have to wait for the show to be released later. I would love to be able to watch every show from the season throughout the season, but I can understand limiting the last five shows.
