Like the app and it is very good about highlighting topics of interest. Just wish there was a way of closing it! It goes full screen and the only way to exit appears to be to drag down to expose the navigation bar and then returning to the desktop. Hitting back should also close it!
I liked the ability to schedule downloads for offline use and the rating system is interesting. Although the app seems to glitch when casting to Chromecast, where the video will not fully take up the top half of the screen not letting you rate the video, sometimes stopping the cast and taking away the cast feature. Otherwise great so 4/5
FORCES user to have CNN in the feed , automatically "stars" it even when you don't so it shows up in the feed automatically. Liberal junk -5*'s
I love the app. I Use it with my Chromecast regularly. I LOVE that you guys added the Roku app recently as well. However, the reason I am giving 4 stars instead of 5, is, I'll admit, semi-petty, however, I'll proceed anyways--If you guys add the ability to cast, not only to chromecast devices, but also to the Roku app as well, this would be perfect. For one thing, it helps starting from where you left off on mobile device, and for another, it helps those that don't have Chromecasts yet do have Roku (I have both chromecast AND Roku devices throughout my home, and clearly it would be useful even to me, or you wouldn't even be reading this right now--so it's not only useful to people with only Roku. YouTube uses an older technology to cast to Roku devices, is it possible for you guys to use that same, older tech to allow casting to your Roku app? I promise 5 stars if this feature is added! [Update: The older technology I mentioned above, it was developed jointly by Netflix and YouTube and is the reason you can cast to Roku from Netflix and YouTube. Originally Chromecast used this technology, called "D.I.scovery A.nd L.aunch" (DIAL), yet currently uses a different protocol--however Roku continues to use the DIAL produce l protocol.]
Haystack TV is a vast improvement over the YouTube app and it's troublesome navigation and connectivity issues. Haystack TV is very reliable connectivity-wise.
I finally had to delete due to its built in bias. No matter how many sources you liked, it would only cater to liberal.
