What's New in Version 3.6.1
Don't like the sound that plays when you tune to a show? You can now turn this off in Settings > Sounds. We also fixed a few issues, including one where VoiceOver could read the wrong program name when scrolling through time in All Listings.
Doesn't change channels as claimed. Programming is often not current. This is a bad AP that doesn't work but I guess you know that already, just look at the reviews. Well, you're offering something for free so I guess Comcast/Xfinity does not have to put any effort into it. But, you know, I would think a company as big as yours would be concerned about its reputation. Competitors are out there and with the other problems you've been having its just a matter of time. Thank you, to whom it may concern, someone, I'm sure, many good people at Comcast who may be concerned and may be reading this, for at least allowing this feedback board. Please fix this AP or delete it from the AP store.
It's Comcast. Good for that. If you like Comcast.
It's a handy tuner. And thanks, folks, for turning off that VERY annoying loud chirp on tuning.
About 10% of the time, the listings fail to load, and about 5% of what's left, the listings are in error. About 5% of the time, tuning fails due to the erroneous claim that I am offline. For all these reasons, I keep my TVGuide app and my manual tuner close at hand.
As for $Comcast$ itself, don't bother to get me into a rant.
On demand does not show all movies. The movies it shows I've never even heard of. It did this randomly and it does it on my husbands phone too. I hate using the remote because I can't read the tv. I like seeing it on my phone. Fix and I'll raise my rating.
Edit: Randomly my bedroom tv box isn't listed so I can only control my living room now. I've uninstalled logged out checked for updates and can't seem to find a fix. I love this app because I'm blind as a bad but it's irritating it never works right!
