Trash program. It 'updated' itself, all my content I had downloaded is gone, and now it seems every title I've ever watched (and deleted from the old player) is back, and cannot be deleted??? This program - JUNK. I cannot say enough bad about it. "Support" is equally a joke. I feel like this was a high school kid's computer class project and he got like a D+ on it... and somehow it's made it to the download store and here we all are suffering along together. There needs to be a realistic and workable solution.
new message: menu no longer disappears once the videos start to play on my android phone. great job on that fix! but where is the advanced controls for tablets and phones? the player itself is quite usable for basic play. however for learning music from the Stefan Grossman workshop lessons, the purple player method is not good enough. I'm so disappointing in this purple player. Another another thing, the windows desktop app (so that i may directly download the content) does not work. i'm at a loss.
Needs Chromecast It's a reasonable app. However, it's not practical to play music tuition videos on a phone. I currently plug my laptop into my TV HDMI. Please implement Chromecast. Thanks
Pure Crap. Can't access previously purchased Homespun content. I live in rural america and only have cell data. It looks like it wants me to redownload all content. I used the instructions on Homespun's site to transfer my downloaded files to my tablet but no luck. Still won't recognize them when put in the Purple Player folder automatically added by this crAPP. I have already paid for these videos and have already paid to download them. Because of the greedy policies of Homespun I will no longer be using either service. I paid for the content-- 25.00 or more per video and I can't access them. I can transfer any album , movie or any content between IOS, Android and Mac with no problems. I thought this app would allow me to use my Homespun content on a mobile device. Guess not. No thanks! Happy? - Hardly!
Can't use it Everything loads for about half of a second, then goes away. I end up with a loading icon that just spins. This makes it essentially impossible to access purchased lesson videos.
Bad update Downloaded many videos before a trip and then discovered all lost due to app update. Had to waste huge data bandwidth on redownloading only to discover 6 out of 7 downloads wouldn't play. Huge step backwards with latest update.
The all new Purple Player app has been completely rebuilt from the ground up.

NOTE: Due to a completely new architecture, you will need to sign in again (just once) and redownload any previously downloaded media.
