Greatest TV App Ever I only have "air / antenna" TV so this is the only way I can see what is coming on. I also "follow" all my favorite shows so convenient. Have tried other Apps but they don't have all the channels I get on my Antenna. This is the only one that does. Have had the App for years with no problems except for the occasional "connection error" what ever that means.
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.
I'm editing my review and changed my rating down to 3 stars because they still haven't updated! We have 5 new local channels here in erie, pa and they're still not on the listing!!! ORIGINAL REVIEW: This is the best app for local channels I have found. Would have given 5 stars except it takes a while for it to update new channels (current example for Erie, Pa, 12.2 is not longer CW, it is now METV).
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.
Amazed! I'm telling everyone how amazing this app is. I just cut my cable service and with this app I have no intention of going back to having a monthly bill 😊. My only suggestion is that if there could be a mark when you are looking at "whats on now " of the shows you follow, instead of having to open a show to see that you are following it.... I still love it!!!!
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.
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!
