Review from Brandon Bauman
Novel Idea It is routinely wrong. Often things I know for sure are available on any streaming service shows "unavailable". I subscribe to almost everything and an app like this would be really valuable. Unfortunately, it doesn't deliver as advertised.
+1 Informative and purposeful Think of a TV Show or movie. Open the app. Search for the content. The app then informs you if the content is available to stream, rent, purchase, DVDs or Blueray, and Xfinity. Availability is indicated by the price or subscription type below the servicer logo indicating the service provides the searched content. If the service does not provide the searched content, a clock overlay is presented over the servicer logo and "n/a" below the servicer logo to indicate the service has yet to provide the content.
Doesn't work anymore This was a useful tool for years, but now it doesn't seem to be supported or curated anymore. It's a shame because it was a great app. The best alternative right now is the recently updated Chromecast app which now lets you search for content, and lets you know where to find movies and shows. Although it doesn't include as many services in it's results as Can I Stream does (did).
Not up to date ever Was watching Doctor Who on Amazon Prime last night, decided to check something else. Nothing available for the show I wanted. Then decided to see what info it had for Doctor Who, and according to the app, DW isn't available on ANY streaming service. Yet it IS. So why is the app showing the wrong info. The idea and concept is a great one, and would be very helpful.... if it was only correct. Sadly, I'm uninstalling. Would be easier to search on the streaming service itself.
Ehhh.... Doesn't give accurate information about what's available. Tried a few titles and it gives you the cover page of the movie, but everything regarding what's available and where is inaccurate. If it wants to be a real aggregator it needs to list a lot more apks than they do and they need to be accurate. Look for something better
Used to work great, now always says not available This is more a criticism of the website than the app as the website yields the same results. App used to give very accurate streaming info, but now almost always days not available, but if I go to streaming sites, I can find the movie or TV show on multiple sites. Makes the app unreliable. The app itself is a 3 star at best.
Extremely glitchy It worked the first time I looked up a movie them it freaked out on me. I closed it and tried to start again. The app loaded fine, but I tried to search for another title and it never stopped searching. I tried a few times and unfortunately this app failed miserably. It's a great idea, I just wish it worked.
