Over 3 gigs So far this billing cycle this app has used more data than any other. And I like streaming video, from race updates to you tube. I loved this for a long time because it was easy to switch I traveled and TV providers changed. Now, I just don't want to deal with the back ground ads. Also, customer service just sends a canned response email that basically told me no one would be reviewing my email.
Data usage My Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge has this cool function that breaks each apps data usage down into foreground and background data being used. At one point last month the foreground data usage was .25GB and the background data was a whopping 19.88GB! Equal to my Chrome data and Youtube data. I was wondering why my usage was so high! Fortunately, my phone also has a function to stop background data on individual apps. This did not alter the functionality of the t.v. guide which I really like.
Data Hog App is very reliable and fast. However the video ads play automatically and use a lot of data. If you don't have unlimited data, then it's best to check what's on tv and then close the app quickly. Or use Wi-Fi. Otherwise your carrier will be charging you for all the excessive data. If the ads were changed to non-videos, app would be 5 stars.
Simple to use & up-to-date Forget the newspaper or trying to remember what time your favorite show is on. Right now, tonight, tomorrow, three days from now. It's all here! This app is for you. Simple, reliable and has the details you're looking for. I have used it for over two years and loved it. You will too!
Alerts/Notifications Piece of crap. I'm following 30 shows. Not being alerted to New episodes. It used to work if I uninstalled & reinstalled the app but now never works. Real pain here folks. Uninstalling. No update since Jan 2016. If this was a great app you'd have more than 1 million downloads. Fix the alerts/notifications.
Perfect Easy to use and accurate. Not only did it show what's on now but also what's coming up. Also provides info about the shows and movies like IMDB. Better than I had hoped for.
In this version we have:
- cleaned up some of the ads which will hopefully make the app run smoother and crash less often.
We appreciate all the feedback, keep it coming!
