It's really bad...
I reviewed this app about a year or two ago, and I definitely needed to address an issue and personal opinions I'm having since the recent update. When I moved the app to see my video in a widescreen view, the video completely cleared out and seconds later the app crashed. This has been the only problem I'm having at the moment, but it's still an annoyance having the app crash and video not play when it's just been updated. Personally, I don't like the layout being on the bottom, I like the "view channels" tab on the of your subscriptions videos, but I ran a lot smoother when the layout of playlists were on the left and side. Another issue/personal opinion I have is with the tabs that used to be above the video. They're completely gone now, and I don't know If this was removed or if mine just isn't showing, but I can't save, share, nor check suggested videos from the one I'm currently watching. I have to go back to the channel I got the video from and save it from there. I hope there will be an update soon because the concept was good, but the functionality of the app seems to have backtracked and accessibility has definitely plummeted...
Needs rewind buttons and background playing
I haven't had many problems with this app. But, whenever I try to rewind a video, I either pass the place I wanted it or it freezes. One thing I would like is to make scrubbing easier or add a rewind button to make going back in a video easier.
Another thing I would like added is a "continue playing in background" or "play while locked" option. I like listening to music on the app. But, when I want to lock my phone, it stops the music and I have to keep the app unlocked and open at all times. It's really annoying when I don't want my phone on in my pocket, but I want to listen to music with my headphones. Please make it possible to keep videos and music playing after locking the phone or going into multitasking. It would really help me and a lot of other people who are probably having the same problem.
I would rate 4.5, but 4 is all I can currently give. Thank you if you read this review and please consider adding the suggested items to your update list. Then it will be worth a full five stars.
UPDATE: The app is wonderful with the 60fps option! Pc gaming videos have never been more clear! But, it's only in 720p and there's a lot of pixelation. If it's possible to add a 1080p with 60fps, that would be fantastic! There's already an app that has a great 1080p option, but not with 60fps. So, only because of the 60fps is why I'm not deleting this app straight off my phone. Please consider updating!
It's good, but... Simple fixes, please?
60 fps on mobile? Did no one else notice? I love this! It's great! I had a problem before with the laggy full screen mode, but now it's been fixed pretty well. It could be faster, but then again, I have an iPhone 5, and I've seen how fast it is on the iPhone 6. It's great. Anyway, the problems I have now is that the back button is gone again. Why? It was in the original app, and ever since the new design, it's been gone. But then it came back! And now it's gone again. The back button is so useful, because you might accidentally go to another video you didn't want to go to, and it's such a complicated process to go to the history to get back to the video. I also don't like how removing videos from "Watch Later" is so slow and annoying, and has to reload after every video you remove.
