Robert Johnson Blu system android. Using Maxthon browser. App is a great concept but has poor execution. Cannot open news feeds reliably and then most last for less than a minute or so. Interminable long load times, often with complete loss of audio or video freezes. Totally intolerable. Install only if you have the patience of Jobe or if you're really adept at lip reading. Uninstalled after two excruciating hours.
Links are either broken or easily break on many channels. This was a 5 star app, appears to be in a steady decline. I gladly paid for premium...would pay a subscription fee if that would prompt the Developers to keep up with providing working links. Please re-commit to this once stellar app!!! I want it to be 5 star again!!! Also NO Chromecast support on either my Nexus 7 2nd Gen running 6.0, nor my ZTE N9521 running 5.1
1 more thing to fix Excellent app, but the developer(s) need to either lock the image ratios (preferably), or build in manual ratio adjustment. On my Galaxy Note 5, if I go to the full screen vew, the images get distorted, because they just have to occupy the whole screen, no matter what the originsl ratio is.
I've been using this great app for more than a year saving a lot web news site hassles. But the latest update, have killed all that with the highly intrusive video advertising. For example, a 15 second, full screen commercial, in a language I don't even speak, that can't be skipped, canceled, and which had to be killed with a root task manager. If this isn't removed by the next update, I will definitely uninstall this, as I've already stopped using it. Please fix it! I'm sure there are many better ways for you to make some extra money, than to kill the User Experience like this.
Fix the bugs....damn Not running as smooth as it wants was. Especially CNN...broadcasts cuts out. Please fix.....please. I'm glad I didn't pay for this. Developers are lazy and will not fix it.
Just needs Chromecast The best range of channels - just needs Chromecast support to be excellent. It now claims that it does. It doesn't. (Just casting the screen of the device isn't quite what we need).
