The app just closes way too much. 2-3 times per movie. There is no auto resume when you reopen the app. You have to search the whole library for what you were watching. Sometimes there is a resume option once to find the movie then hit play. My Genie will have 25 shows recorded to watch on it, I can only see three from my app...
Can't watch a complete episode of anything before it crashes. Also....why do i need to watch 12 2-3minute commercials if we are paying for this service...I get maybe 2 commercials...but the commercials are just breaking in wherever..its not even following the pattern of the shows. And then you can't fast forward and the DVR download doesn't work WTF!?!? I wish I kept uverse!!!
It would be nice if we could do as your commercials say we could. Like... access everything away from home (or even at home) on my tablet or phone. Does not work. I can be sitting right in front of the genie box and it says cannot locate receiver or connect to same network and everything is connected to the same network!!! FRUSTRATING! I think that might be a breach of contract since that's part of the deal. Plus, on the off chance that it does work it's stop and go buffering all the time even when I am at home.
I'm so frustrated! When I'm away from home or in a room with no Direct TV I watch on demand movies on my tablet. However the resume feature is not working when the app crashes so I have to start the movie all over again. This has happened numerous times and in most cases I was toward the end of the movie. Also the app crashes while watching live TV and the streaming quality is poor. I don't have this problem on any other streaming app. Hoping to see a much improved performance with the next update. I really want to like this app.
Had to uninstall an reinstall just to get my dvr information to clear. Had shows stuck in there that wouldn't delete. Finally linked to my dvr showing exactly what is available. Please get this part straight, pay alot for my services, an I want them to all work correctly
This would be a great app, if it worked! It is the single most crashed app on my tablet and phone. Live TV works sometimes, downloading from DVR is sporatic, even when the app says it's connected to the DVR in one area, it says it can't find it to start downloads. Offline viewing crashes and you have to Force Stop the app to get it to work again. Miserable user experience for what should be the best app on my phone and tablet.
