Review from Rob Lupine
Needs work, but ok I know they need the adverts to fund the app, but 3 adverts before you get to the show you want to watch is a little excessive. I was also annoyed to find when I paused the app to talk to someone it took me back to the start when I resumed. I could forward the programme on the search bar but not the adverts. Change it to just one advert at the beginning & one in the break & it'd be worth 4 stars, get rid of the adverts & it'd be 5.
Rad Not sure what others user's are meaning by issues, I've had none, ever! 4od is great for getting my yearly Peep Show marathon done and dusted whether I'm on lunch at work, in bed or streaming it to a TV via numerous Chromecasts I seem to come into contact with. The ability to download and save episodes is perfect, quick download and then bam, I'm watching Time Team while I'm eating chips in my car at the coast while it chucks it down. What's not to love.
Plays ads fine but programmes don't work Plays ads perfectly but when programme starts there is sound but video is "candy stripes" - pink and blue vertical stripes. Have uninstalled and reinstalled plus restarted device but with same result. Device is a Lenovo tablet that plays video and other catch-up services perfectly. Hopefully there will be a fix soon but with so many other reviews reporting similar issues I'm not hopeful. Shame - there are some good Ch4 progs but the Android app is not up to snuff.
Always stops after 9 seconds. Won't play anything! For the last month or so I haven't been able to watch anything using this app. All of the programmes play through the ads and the first 9 seconds before stopping. I've deleted and reinstalled many times, tried several different episodes and even different programmes, but nothing works! Really considering stopping usage of this altogether
ALL 4 APP . JUST NEEDS SUBTITLES. PLEASE. JUST NEEDS SUBTITLES PLEASE THEN I WILL GIVE FIVE STARS. OVER WISE ALL 4 APP IS GREAT. NEVER HAD ANY PROBLEMS WITH THE ALL 4 APP. CAN'T UNDERSTAND WHY THIS APP IS ONLY RATED 2.8 STARS. IT HAS SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE. AND ALL THE BOX SETS AND ALL THE WALTER PRESENTS WORLD DRAMAS. AND MORE ETC....
Simply doesn't work! OnePlus 3 Though I'd download 4od to watch some Guy Martin. Nothing plays, I just get a message stating my device is not compatible with this content. It's brand new, seems like the app isn't compatible with new hardware not the other way round!
Incredibly slow For the odd programme I really want to watch on mobile, it's awfully laggy and frustrating. I just gave up. Trying again now for chromecast but it's awful too. Shouldn't have to wait 2 minutes, browse to the section I think was watching, and then another 4 minutes of adverts. Your app should take that into account, it's a no brainer.
