What more can you ask for. Streams well, looks good, great features and now that they've added the guide along with photo and media streaming one is left wondering can it get any better? Don't hesitate to buy it is the real deal! UPDATE ..... I loved it before. I was excited to receive my S7 Edge and couldn't wait to view my Slingbox on this screen only to be so disappointed. It constantly flickers green. The sad part is I bought this app even before they reduced the price. So I reduced the stars from 5 to 1 please fix this.
GREAT APP!! Should not cost so much. Works great with Nexus 6P. Love the interface and responsiveness. Only reason for four stars vs five is price. IMHO, purchasing a hardware device, and then having to pay extra for the software to make it work, on my phone, and even more to make it work on a tablet, seems a bit greedy. At least there's no fees for USING the service.
Does not work consistently The Chromecast streaming feature does not work consistently. Often, even when connected to the right wi-fi network and when other apps can stream to the Chromecast, SlingPlayer does not show the Chromecast icon. Furthermore, there is a bug on the galaxy s7 which makes viewing on the phone impossible as the screen constantly flashes green.
Worst support, Does not work chromecast Worst app developer, Does not work with chromecast, even on latest update 2.13.1. Cast icon randomly shows up 1 out of 20 times. I have no issues with other cast ready apps, only from slingmedia. Chromecast is best selling streaming device, there should be support for this device. It seems like they are intentionally limiting functionality to chromecast, since no other app has problems working with chromecast
Problems with latest android update Chromecast icon sometimes shows up, but most of the time it doesn't. I get a green flickering once in awhile as well. My fiance has an iPhone and sometimes she has a chromecast icon, and sometimes she doesn't. I'm using galaxy s7 with the latest updates. Works great when it works. Can we please get an update to fix the chromecast issues? Customer support is non existent.
I purchased this app specifically to cast from the Slingplayer on my phone to Chromecast and my TV. This worked very well until recently. The Slingplayer still runs very well on my phone, but the Chromecast icon never appears. I see that many others are having the same problem. I already paid the ridiculous $16 for this app. This issue needs to be fixed immediately. I will re-rate if the issue is fixed.
