Well they've taken care of the old issues which is a nice thing. Bet for some reason it only goes for just a short time and then it goes to will be right back and then it goes to a blank screen and then I have to go to my app and disconnect from casting to my Chromecast and start all over and within 5 minutes back doing the same thing this app is absolutely useless and is a major joke when it comes to getting news information online!!!!!

Terrible app!!! Tried watching KUSI in San Diego and it jumps back, then forward so missing broadcast. I contacted developer but they can't effect any repairs cause they're confused as to what's is wrong.... meaning it's over their heads and they don't have the skill set to make it work properly. Garbage app. Don't waste your time, find another app.

As a few others have said, if you like the *idea* of this app, but hate the current version, search & find version 1.6.1 and load that (and disable updates on Google Play). You will have settings to choose your resolution, chromecast support and the ability to pause, FF, REW or start from the beginning on live broadcasts. I don't understand how they could strip SO much functionality from the old version and call it an "upgrade". Current version is pretty much complete garbage.
