Awful! The old version was fine. New version, aside from a terrible layout, does not let me watch 70% of the live tv shows because Im on a tablet. I have the channels, but not allowed to watch. That is the entire point of Optik on the Go, is to watch on mobile device. I am beyond frustrated with this, there is no point to having it
Used the older version without fail, installed new and will not work. No option to roll back to previous version! Basically screwed as can't use app at all now as has an error as soon as I try to load. Really frustrated!!!!! Used it everyday!
Decent update to the original Optik on the Go app. One thing I noticed was the improvement of the live TV playback, definitely smoother than before and feels at least 30 fps, rather than the odd stutter every few seconds of old. The interface does try to feel more movie/Netflix like with large pictures, but I would still like to have the guide in smaller one line items as an option for faster scrolling than the current pictures or thicker bars. The interface is a little laggy. Selecting Live TV for instance, may take 5 - 10 seconds for items to start popping up. And with no status circle, you're somewhat unsure if you selected something, hopefully remedied on the next update. Other than that, keep up the great work!
it's nice that it opens to full screen but I wish I had the option to go to half screen like the previous version. Major battery hog compared to previous version. The back of my LG3 smartphone gets very hot watching TV even for a few minutes. Quite slow to load and often tells me I'm disconnected from the internet when I'm not and I have to correct the issue by restarting the phone. I wish I could go back to the previous version which in my opinion was far superior.
Just updated this morning, not a fan of the new interface also stops streaming for me after a few minutes with the upload circle. Previous version found much better, absolutely terrible update.
Unfortunately, Optik TV has stopped working. That's as far as I can get when trying to run the app on my tablet.
