What's New in Version 3.2
We've improved video playback and added Airplay streaming support which will make it easier than ever to watch all your favorite USA shows!
Becoming Extremely Frustrated
I am satisfied with the app's streaming abilities, however, there are two major bugs that are extremely frustrating when attempting to watch more than one episode. First, the app crashes after trying to watch second episode. For example, I finished episode 3 of Mr. Robot, exited the video before the credits, then swiped left to play the next one and after hitting the play button, the screen immediately freezes and I must force close the app. This would not be so terrible if it weren't for the fact that every time it crashes, I have to sign into my provider's account again! I know there is a way for the app to remember what my account is because it stores where I left my unfinished episode! It is infuriating. I currently have a first generation iPad mini, running iOS 8.1 on your latest app version. I also redownloaded the app to possibly fix this to no avail. Please fix these tremendous bugs. Thank you.
App Works Well for What It Does...
This app delivers a pretty high quality audio/video experience with no glitches, at least not on my equipment (iPad Mini 2r streaming to Apple TV). But somebody at the decision-making level of USA Network should re-think the wisdom of making people sit through so many iterations of the same set of commercials. Fast-forwarding through them is a hit-or-miss proposition, as the screen is all black while fast forwarding. If for any reason the program is interrupted the app doesn't 'automatically' store my 'place,' so that replay is from the beginning. Either ridiculously poor coding or, more likely, poor decision on the part of USA execs.
Successful One-Night Stand
Missed episode 9 of Mr. Robot this week and did not have access to my home wi-fi network, rendering my usual medium of consumption unavailable (Xbox Video season pass). Downloaded USA Now to view Ep 9 with no intention of future use. That said, I just watched the episode with excellent A/V on my iPhone 6. Agree with every review - too many ads - but I don't much mind considering I've exhausted the need for this app and will delete it following this submission. App served its purpose without a flaw for my "one night stand." I'm not a cuddler though.
