What's New in Version 3.7.2
Can't even open app
Was working fine until a week ago) other than the fact that you took away the ability to zoom out making it impossible to see the whole screen). Now I Can't even open the app. It just quits immediately. It opens if I'm connected to wifi but I only watch shows on my commute where there is no wifi. What the heck. It was working fine a week ago. I'm so frustrated I could scream. The main reason I have an iPad is so I can watch my shows on the go. And I have shows downloaded that I will lose if I delete and reinstall. This app is so glitchy. It's great when it works but so many issues over the years. And as others have said the fact that the app has to be open to continue downloading is ridiculous especially since it takes so long. This could be the best app and the greatest reason to own an iPad. But it's just one frustration after another.
I use this app frequently to download and play programs later in my car. I would like four improvements though. 1)increase download speed. 2)allow downloads to proceed in the background. 3)allow audio only playback to save phone battery. Not all content needs a picture such as news and financial shows. 4)provide an option to initialize the app without looking for an Internet connection to speed up initialization. This is useful for playing back downloads when away from a network which is almost always the case.
As you can see speed is a theme here. No program will ever run fast enough but this one can be particularly frustrating in that regard. Please keep working on this app, while it is very useful, there is much room for improvement.
Want to pull your hair out of your head? Try to get this app to work reliably. I've followed the instructions precisely, installed and reinstalled, rebooted, changed my network remote settings, and it still will not work reliably. The remote will work for an hour, then tell me there's no box on the network. The app itself has a "settings" button, but if it cannot find the box on your network, it won't let you change any settings. It's such a shame as it provides great information and would be awesome if it actually worked, but it's so sporadically functional that it is useless. Inexcusable.
