I would think this is the perfect app if it had two minor improvements: (#1) an easier way to make small adjustments to current playback position (e.g. skip ahead 10 seconds or 5 minutes, more than just plus or minus 30 seconds). (#2) The option to track viewing history, without having to use a service line Trakt. Still giving this 5 stars because it has otherwise worked flawlessly for at least a year now.

Mostly functional, but some things have recently been getting more glitchy when casting to my chromecast. Specifically, I can no longer simply tap along the timeline to jump to a specific point or use the seek buttons without everything coming to a screeching halt. So, you either make it through with no interruptions or start from the beginning. Not ideal.

This used to be a great app when it first came out. Over the years as more options and features have been added, the stability and ability to properly stream to Samsung smart TVs and Chromecast has gone down hill. It's a constant struggle to get it to even detect devices to stream to let alone play and be able to forward, resume, skip, etc. I've finally decided to stop using this app and have started using mediamonkey. Definitely a smart choice as it streams, is stable and works like this app once did way back when it first came out. Thanks to developers of this app as it was great back in the early years. Not worth it anymore.
