Really Good So Far, But Needs MORE!
I want to give kudos for doing an awesome job on this app! It just works, and everything is kept simple.
However, it has a few more improvements that can be made. Which means, it can become even more awesome!
-There should be an ability to see to view a channel's chat room in full screen, even when it is offline. You can just view the chat from the channel info sidebar, but I find that a bit clunky to use after while.
-You should be able to see a channel's offline picture when it's offline. A black screen with the words "[Channel] is offline" is kind of boring. This shouldn't be any harder as it sounds to implement right?
-Hosting doesn't work! When a channel goes offline and then hosts another channel, mobile users stay on the offline screen, and must search up the channel directly if they want to see what's being hosted. I hope to see this being fixed soon?
-The notifications can also see a subtle improvement as well. When a channel goes online, the notification should include what game they are playing:
"[Channel] just went live playing [Game]!" Perhaps while at it, also notify when a channel switches games?
What are you waiting for?!
If you like their website but want to take this mobile, this is the app for you! I love being able to watch e-sports events, check out live footage from new games and interact with the people playing them. You can also watch the pros play and learn from them! If you're a gamer of any kind, this app is a must!
Great for video!
Yes, it drains battery fast, sometimes lags a bit behind, but it's a live streaming service, that's free. It has some flaws, but it is still good.
Some flaws would be video quality sometimes takes a dive (even though speeds and connection are good). It's good, just use it.
