I don’t know how this app has such high reviews. I’m just trying to use the app to watch past streams of some people I enjoy. Every time I pause the video and turn off my phone screen or switch to a different app it starts the video from the beginning, assuming it even brings up the video at all when I open the app again. When dealing with 3+ hour content, remembering your place is vital. I also can’t find a way to quit a video I started, just make it small and click on something else. (If there is a method, I haven’t found it with all my prodding and swiping). When I pause the video full screen, an overlay pops up that hides half the screen and makes it really easy to misclick something (For the 20th time, no I’m not trying to unfollow the person I’m watching, thanks), and also makes it hard to see the thing that I paused to look at. It’s ok (and actually better) to have some information and options outside of full screen mode.
i couldn’t tell you if the iphone app is good, as i’ve had no cause to use it. but the apple tv app is not great.
- lets me easily and quickly join streams from accounts i follow
- search and explore works really well
- siri remote touch sensitivity seems to be on like a quadratic scale, sensitivity-wise
- watching past streams regularly cuts out and dumps you to the homescreen. and beyond this it doesn’t save where you were watching from, so you have to ff yourself
- font size and interface elements are quite small
- no ability to scrub through a video, you have to use the built in ff/rw buttons
would totally recommend to all my friends! it’s a great app and it’s super fun to stream and watch streams. i would rate this app 5 stars if some glitches could be fixed. for example, recently i’ve been losing a lot of followers, and yes, that’s sounds like a “me problem.” but i asked my friends why they unfollowed me, and they all swear they didn’t. for them, it still says they follow me, but my follow count goes down and stream manager removes the date and username of who followed me. again, amazing app, but still bugs. please read this review and consider trying to fix it! thanks, filly c
It’s okay if you want to see someone game, however, enjoy watching a 30 second add before even seeing the channel and knowing if you want to view or not. You could end up seeing 2-4 adds before even getting to see a channel you like, and sometimes these adds are movie preview .... so they can spoil movies you want to see - especially if you are a film purist like me . I’ll catch a preview add that I can easily identify a spoiler and just not see the movie. Other than the stupid amount of ads this is okay.
I love twitch, but the app seems to be completely incapable of maintaining your place in a stream. If I leave the app for 1 second it restarts the stream from the beginning. Same for if I try to watch a stream that I didn’t finish yet, it will show the place I was at but then immediately go back to the beginning when I hit play. It’s very frustrating, and I’m tired of having to regularly screenshot my place in streams so I can know where I was when it inevitably throws me back to the beginning.
When re-entering app to finish watching VOD it doesn’t always resume where left off, starts over from beginning. Previously requested features: Please add the ability to adjust volume outside of my phone volume button. For example, while I’m taking a call I would like to adjust the volume down slightly of the streamer so that I can hear the phone call while watching the stream. Also, please add the ability to subscribe in the app with Amazon Prime and donate. Thanks!!!
I really like this app so far and all the live streaming games and they are all actions pact.I don’t have any bad things to say and I like when people are interacting with other people on the World Wide Web and you can see who you are playing against on all the games.Good luck for the company that made this apps and I hope you guys create more live streaming apps like this one.
This app allows twitch steamers to post videos often upwards of 5hours long. And this app does not save your place when coming back to videos you were watching. There is no continue watching tab, and worst of all when ads play the video restarts and you loose your place in a 5 hour long video! These failed feature make the app unusable, terrible, fix the app
I’ve been trying to login to my twitch and I was logged in on my phone but not my pc so I try on my pc to where the point it blocks me from logging in... then I go to my phone and I am already logged in and since it won’t tell me my password I have to reset it but I it blocked me from logging in with my email they should be able to prevent that FIX IT
I haven’t had any ads for bits in 10+ months. I live in the United States. I do not have ad blocker. I can’t get any ads at all. I’ve messaged twitch about this repeatedly and they gave me the same answer to turn off Adblocker and be in the US. PLEASE fix this because I can’t support my favorite content creators. Thank you!
