This review is about the APP, not the content. The content is great. The app is not amazing. We could really use the ability to temporarily dl shows for offline use, and it would also be great if the shows wouldn't stop playing every time you leave the app. So... Downloads and the ability to turn your screen off and still listen, this would make it amazing! PS. I do love to watch the shows, but I don't always have time to just sit and watch.
Content is amazing. But the app needs serious work. The picture freezes every couple minutes, You need to have the screen on and the video playing on screen to listen to the show, making it so you can't do anything else with your phone without it pausing and possibly sending you back to the beginning of the episode. Make it so you can have it running in the background so you can do other things with your phone or listen with the screen off.
The content on the CRTV app is very good however the app itself has much to be desired regarding its video streaming. The audio and video is constantly getting out of sync with each other. It will correct itself but then just a short time later, it's out of sync again. It's always an ongoing thing. If you all fix this, I'll change my rating.
5 stars if this app had a way to listen offlone. Bought the mug club subscription but now I feel cheated. If not fixed by end of my sub I will cancel
Five stars for the content. One star for this awful app. No background play. No offline mode. It doesn't even keep track of where you are in an episode. Phone must have screen on and dedicated to this app the entire time an episode is playing. If you minimize the app to check emails, you have to restart at the beginning of the episode. If your phone screen times out, you are resent back to the beginning. This is especially bad since the in-episode navigation is terrible. Also no Bluetooth controls. You can't pause the episode using headphones. This app is total garbage and is ruining my ability to enjoy the excellent content. Will not be renewing unless this is fixed.
This app is functional but missing some key features. The MOST important of which is the ability to watch off screen with a media player widget. I have to walk around with my phone in my pocket with the screen on and can't do anything else... :(
