Worked fine I have a galaxy S5 and was worried about this app after reading the reviews. However, I had no problems watching tv programs on 2 different southwest flights. I accessed the material using the internet browser. The only minor isdue I had was that my phone didn't do well with full screen mode and the screen would shut off after a few seconds.
It works. Flew on July 28th/2016. Installed the app and the first time I launched the app, it said that my Samsung Galaxy S7 was not supported. I didn't think much of it. Saw all the negative reviews and assumed it wasn't going to work. When I was on the plane, I launched the app and it worked flawlessly. In fact I was surprised how well the video played back. TV shows are free but the videos cost.. and for a 1 hour flight it was just perfect.
All of the negative reviews are wrong The app is essentially a plugin. It is needed to watch the shows from the SWA portal - you don't use the app to watch the shows. I used it on my flight and it worked just fine.
Costs money to use. Couldn't get it to work. Once I got it working, I discovered it was going to charge $5 to watch a movie. Other charges varied based on type of feature. I didn't read reviews before install, no big surprise it's gotten so many poor reviews.
No Issues After reading all the negative reviews I wasn't expecting the app to work. As a backup, I paid for and downloaded a movie onto my device. The purchase was not needed the app worked great. I jumped in and out of several TV shows at no extra cost during the flight. There's also an option to purchase movies.
Broken believe the reviews. On my Southwest flight neither me nor any of my friends, all with different devices, could get this app to work. Just plain broken and bad. 👎
