suddenly, there's no navigation bar. i never watch anything all the way thru without taking a break and this app also cannot remember where i left off. i now have no way to finish watching anything i've taken a break from. i've updated the app, deleted and reinstalled the app, checked my settings, and restarted my phone. still no navigation bar.

I don't mind watching ads but if I'm using my chromecast about 30% of the time the ads freeze and I have to stop casting, scroll back to where I was in the episode (making me watch either six ads again or four ads THEN sixe ads) and then recast. The app also randomly ĺogs me out. ALSO it played the same ad once over and over for three different ad breaks so I watched the same ad 18 times in a row AND some of the ads are deafeningly louder than the shows themselves

The app only works half the time. When trying to cast shows to a Chromecast or Android TV, you'll have to watch 60-90 seconds of ads 3 separate times during each episode. There's a random chance the ads won't load and you'll have to close the app and try again. Then you'll have to watch more ads. They only play the same 10 ads. The app doesn't keep your place in the episodes either, and if you try to scrub to a certain part you gotta watch ads. And the problems repeat from there.
