So far from user friendly, fast forward is useless. Choppy playback, regardless of connection speed! List goes on. Come on guys, create a user experience close to Netflix first. And expand on that, example choose own color on subtitles or font. Etc. On top of that, the content selection is slim at best, ie. we're only offered scraps from the wast HBO production catalog. So much wasted potential, deserves 0 stars!
Have been getting "an error has occurred" all day, when trying to use the app. Not able to sign in. Tried uninstalling with no effect. An error like that should be fixed quickly!! Never had another app being down for that long.. you guys most have the worst 'app team' or whatever.. embarrassing.
Using a Chromebook, it shows the programmes and movies but the controls don't work, so there's no way of pausing. Annoyingly, the pause button just sits there in the middle of the screen. It doesn't do anything but it won't go away either. Fortunately it's not very large, but it's a constant reminder that this app doesn't work properly.
Im using it on a Chromebook, its not bad, but when I updated it yesterday the 'pause' icon stayed on the screen the entire time I was watching a film. Bit buggy, but Im sure HBO will get there. I uninstalled the App and downloaded it again and still have the same issue. I'm using a Samsung Pro
I have used lots of Chromecast apps, and this app is the only one that causes the Chromecast to reset after about 15 minutes watching something. Then, you need to wait for the Chromecast to start again before resuming the casting. :( If you are thinking about using HBO with chromecast, then you'll get frustrated. I'm ending my membership with HBO because of this. Btw, in contrast to this, the Netflix app works like a charm with chromecast, so it's not a device specific problem.
In short, this app should be easier to use. When you are using sidescrolling content lists, they randomly reset and go back to the start. When you select content from the "All movies" or "All series" lists, the app forgets where you were and resets to the top. The Recently watched-list simply does not work. At all. Other bugs too. Good content, bad app.
