What's New in Version 3.20.2
Introducing Shares: Share any post on Pulse to your friends and followers! Whether you’re hosting a stream or raising awareness of an event, sharing helps more viewers get excited about memes, GIFs, clips, highlights, and any other Pulse post.
This is a very well designed application that allows users to search and customize their game viewing experience in many ways. One which is important is that the UI design makes navigation easy. Not everyone who will use this application is a heavy gamer and may not be used to managing all the video activity. Users can quickly select games, gaming channels or communities that interests them from the left pop up menu pane. There are a wide selection of game titles that are broadcast on the service from household names to more in the know ones. After selection users can easily modify screen size from small to full and can also chat with others with the entry space at the bottom of the small screen layout. From my experience with a good connection gameplay flows easily though you can experience short video delays to the audio. The app makes it easy to follow channels you like as well as set push notifications for when their channel is live or someone you follow posts a new video.
Additional adamant ads add up
At the moment the mobile app is pretty good. I use it daily and appreciate it. Since I use it a lot I expect a lot. I gave it 4 stars because there is room for improvement like subscribing/Management and other desktop site features not present on mobile. I'd also like the phone app to stop having a popup ad to review the app, instead provide an incentive/reward of some sort. I also don't like the new notifications which are also just ads for games or videos. There are already 30 sec ads everywhere. I'm going as crazy. The ads add up and additional ads advertise a bad reputation, additionally, adding ads to a subscription based service adds extra ad frustration. What is my money going to - Jeff bezos next multimillion mansion?
App CONSTANTLY freezes
I would love to give this app 5 stars since I truly love it so much except for the fact that the last 2 months my app times out repeatedly and I can only type about 3 words in chat, if I'm lucky, until the chat freezes making it nearly impossible to communicate with anyone unless i have 10 minutes to spend on a couple line comment. It's utterly disappointing that an amazing app such as this would have such an easily fixable problem at the height of its popularity. It could really stand to turn people off from using it over such a silly issue 😢
