You would think after all this time these guys would've made this app compatible with at least the more popular smartphones but it still crashes when changing aspects and still crops off half the screen in widescreen mode with no option to expand to fullscreen. At least not on my Samsung galaxy note 8. So frustrating.

The programmers obviously don't use the the app. It sucks. Doesn't go full screen, can't chromecast, can't center window. What planet are you on? Now.. No audio. Still no No content
