Like the larger screen size appearance of all content compared to the web-page version. Also the way the photos and comment boxes pop out, and pop back again. I find it very easy to use.

The search function has improved, or I now know better how to use it. But, anyway, it now works like a charm.

Thanks for A GREAT APP!

Live video


Tried to fast forward the video after live (recorded live) and it’s so difficult that you take many attempts before the bar appear
When you touch the video it disappears and sometimes you don’t want to watch all of the recording
Please fix that part for us



I’m happy enough with the app. But I hate all these frequent updates! Their size is ridiculous! It’s all good and well if you have unlimited data/ uncapped internet! 249mb of data is almost as big as an iPhone update! And on top of that it’s not like these frequent updates improve the app substantially enough to warrant the size of the update!
Not everyone is rich enough to afford that amount of data.
