While my first thought is "I sure wish I had a popular phone type for handling such apps", I must remind myself that I wouldn't enjoy watching full shows on such a small screen. I suppose it's nice to hear that there's a tech team trying to develop CR in such ways. Though too much of this type of news could make me worry about where the budget is going.

i <3 you guys lol i hope the improvements continue!

A really neat application for anyone including pple that pay a monthly fee to support crunchyrolls contribution.
You guys should add a "logging in" existing option for pple that have premium accounts.
Can't wait for the final finished product of this app, it can go really well once the bugs are fixed and more options are implied.

The app is great, very slick. One sugestion... you have so much content... it would be nice to have a "favorites" list that you could maintain shortcuts to your favorite series in.

Thanks!

Also, is there any reason we can't get new releases and other premium videos with our premium accounts?

I know you have a lot of features to add still, but it would be nice to be able to watch the new stuff on the go.

The app looks and works very well and it's great to know that it really was from CR. The design is just right in how clean, simple, and easy it is to use and navigate. The video quality is also very good and loads up nicely and the subtitles are fine. It was a little bothersome seeing them so close to the bottom at first, but no longer, if not for best, since it's not in the way of the picture.

On the negative side, search can sometimes make the app crash (such as typing in "trailer") and the Wi-Fi connection can cut out after a video is done and sometimes during it. It is not a frequent occurrence, but does happen every so often. Also, some of the release dates have incorrect year listings ("0002")

As for suggestions:

--Remembering subtitle options
--Search by genre (or at least recognition of search terms, such as "action" for action shows)
--Deeper searching ("gintama ep 12", "saki 20", etc.)
--Greater social networking connectivity with site (not a deal-breaker for me, but I'm sure many people here would like the ability to comment or rate a show, have their status shown in their profile, etc.)
--Better navigation through longer series (e.g. batch listings of episodes--"1-12"..."120-144"--rather than scrolling through one long list, or even a toggle between both options)
--Categorized titles ("By Alphabet", "By Genre", "By Publisher", etc.). The follow-through links in the episode descriptions are a good place to take advantage of this, as well (e.g. having other titles listed in the publisher profiles when the genre is selected)

It's very impressive for an alpha version and needs just a few more twinks and improved searching. It's perhaps the best anime video app out there, so I guess the only other thing I could say right now is to be careful to not make it too cluttered, complicated, or feature-heavy. Its simplicity and quick access to viewing are its strongest suits.

Omg! Thank you Shinji! This is really great, this'll help a lot!

EDIT: Very quick question, Will this ever become a "Paid" app? If so, when and how much?
