I love the creativity of the Dust shorts, and overall, I like the app, but there are some issues with it that need to be addressed. 1. The app requires you to login every time you use it. TV apps normally log you in and keep you logged in. This isn't a high-security banking app. It's okay to leave me logged in. The app developers even included fingerprint login. Look, I'm not protecting state secrets. Just keep me logged in. 2. The same annoying "you must login each time you open the app" problem exists on the Android TV version, but it's even more annoying because retyping a username and password on a screen keyboard with a remote is a PITA, and there's no quick login action like the fingerprint on phone. Again, there's no reason for this. It's a TV app. The app also doesn't let you use a bluetooth keyboard, even if you have one connected. Yep. You have to type out the username and password with the remote. Every freaking time. 3. Even once I log in on the Android TV version, the app stalls when I click on my profile. It gets stuck with the loading circle permanently spinning. I've reset the app data and cache data so this doesn't seem to be a one time thing. It doesn't happen on the phone or the website. All of this means I have to use the app without a user account on Android TV, which means I can't save a list of videos or do any other customization. If they would back down on the login requirements and fix the profile loading issues, this app would be 5 stars. Right now, it's about 3 1/2.

If you are not familiar with DUST yet, than you are in for an awesome experience. I've been following the independent sci-fi films on YouTube and have been awaiting the app. So, I have a lot of positive things I could say about it. Check it out yourself and see what your missing. As for the app.. it's a great app. All the options one might want for watching the shortsci. My favorite is Other Space series 📺❤️😂

This app has a ridiculous amount of ads. I have it on my Roku tv and the ads are longer than some of the movies. I watch a mini video that was 12 mins long and there was about 13 mins of ads not to mention they played the same ad over and over back to back. It was an alstate ad. I'm uninstalling from all devices.
