Ratings and Reviews
For more than 40 years, the cast of Saturday Night Live have cracked us up with their hilarious skits, music videos, and fake commercials. This companion app gives you instant access to thousands of video clips from every era of the TV show, searchable by character, comedian, episode, or season. Plus, for those craving even “more cowbell,” the app includes a keyboard extension featuring emoji of classic SNL characters and props.
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.
Before Update It Was Pretty Good But Now
With the latest update the app requires that you establish a user profile/account with NBC. I refuse to do that. I just want to be able to view clips from Saturday Night Live like I used to but now I can’t. Displeased with SNL’s big brother approach to sharing its content. Will likely be deleting the app now since it’s unusable to me in its current state.
Update: I appreciate you’re reading and responding to my initial review; however, you’re still missing the point entirely. I never asked for and do not want your suggested viewings. I have been a fan of SNL since I was old enough to watch it. As a teen I attended several live performances at 30 Rock. In fact, before I could drive a car (and well before internet existed) I used to take a train to NYC from CT to watch archived tapes of episodes in their entirety. As I stated previously, the last iteration was better and usable. The current one requires information that I don’t want to give and for reasons that I don’t agree with so I’m no longer willing to use it.
