(2★) Clunky and Aggravating
The app is lag-prone and it's almost impossible to navigate to a specific part of a program. Can we please get FF and RW
buttons?Also there are lots of ads but that's to be expected on a free app, so
Jul 14
(5★) Please have these CHANGES!
You should take out the ads in the show because, when I'm about to see something happen a ad just pops up and has 4 more ads. Also

(2★) this app is ok
This app works TERRIBLE on a I phone but works perfectly on an I pad mini so let's say only download this app for I pad if not it
will buffer and be freezes forever
(2★) ommercials
There are way to many commercials. I try to watch a show and all of the sudden it's a cliff hanger and I have to watch commercials
for 5 freaken minutes to watch it I hate I hate it so freaken much
Jul 11
(2★) 50/50
Not a bad application as long as you avoid tapping on one of those adverts. It takes you out of the show into the advert and
sticks there. For iPhone users, there is no back pass to take you out of th

(2★) Barely any cable providers
Its just stinks how it doesnt support time warner cable (twc) even though twc has its own app. I mean I do watch tv on the twc app

Really? I'm trying to watch pretty little liars (pll) on this and it's like every three minutes there's five more ads. My wifi

(4★) Ads
it's a great app I mean I can watch on my phone on this app but there's too much ads when watching the shows.
(2★) Aggravating

(3★) Rather bummed
So I got this App and I absolutely love it but every time a commercial break pops up the show keeps playing along with the
commercial so I have to exit the show and restart it again and it's really a
(2★) 5 in a row?!
Ads on this app are ridiculous and so slow
(2★) Logs out too often
The app keeps logging me out over and over again, even though I don't turn my iPad off or close the app. I need that to change,
because it's a pain to ask family to put in the user id and the password
(3★) No AirPlay option
I have rated 3 star as I like the app, does it purpose but not up to current streaming apps as it's been missing AirPlay
chromecast support. I remember app having AirPlay support but not anymore.

I love to watch PLL all the Time. So I just watch it here.
Everytime I try to watch stitchers it shuts down the app

I love abc family and all of its great shows but I don't have cable! I normally have a friend record it for me but then I found
this app. I was extremely happy that I could watch it from my own home.
May 22
(2★) Cannot load TV show
I have a particular show on ABC Family that I love, but when I downloaded the app and gave my service provider it would not do
anything for me, how do I like an app when it doesn't even work for me.

Hi! Haven't really tried this app yet, only downloaded it to catch up on Chasing Life, but unfortunately can't find it on here.
Kind of disappointing! But if it were put back up I'm sure I would like

(2★) Says I'm out of the states!
It's ridiculous that I'm in South Carolina and it's say I'm out of the US or it's territories. It won't let me watch anything
unless even if I'm logged into my provider. Let's just say I'm not happy r

(2★) Watch it online
I don't know why, but you can watch it on a laptop with no cable provider. So why not on the app? Seems pretty stupid to me. Check

I can still watch it because I have Comcast. But I agree the change was stupid. Was it so you could watch it live maybe? Then they
should have two different apps.

I like the app but the signing in with your provider is stupid. Also i wish when you watched live you could rewind. If i miss
something while watching it i want to be able to pause and rewind. And the

People in Canada should be able to watch the episodes too! Lots of Canadians have abc family or abc spark so they should be able
