Just tried it out. Video quality is nice even if it is in SD right now. But there is one problem. Subtitles are a little too small. Kinda hard to read them right now.

I'm also curious why there is a 12 hour delay for simulcasts instead of the standard 1 hour?

iPads not available in the shops here yet. Only 1 person I know has an android phone, but most of my friends have iphones, and why shouldn't people who are slightly older win competitions too?

Did someone say that most of the people who subscribe are from a younger generation? I recall you had to be a premium member to be in the competition, and I wonder what the actual age distribution of premium member is? I imagine it peaks in the 20-30 range and tails off either side. But I'm curious to know.

The projected volumes of Android users in the link earlier in the thread is for the US. It will be interesting to see if they manage to get similar volumes in the rest of the world.

All I can say is, if they sold iPhones for $50 and then gave you another one for free, like they do with android phones (they literally have to give them away). Android wouldn't have top market share in the US by a long shot.

Later this month if you upgrade to Android 2.2 when it comes out. This UTube from Adobe shows off some video streaming. While CR may well "optimize for mobile", the videos play perfectly well even if they don't:

I tested the App out yesterday and while it looked good I was unable to get subtitles to load for this weeks Naruto Shippuuden. There was simply no option to activate the subtitles. I tested it out on other episodes and they worked just fine. There was also a little video problem where I would hear audio but see a blank screen, then I tried to adjust how the video filled the screen and the video would fast forward to catch up to where the show currently was.
I also agree that the subtitles are a little small.
All-in-all not bad for an alpha though. One wish list item: the search button (it's there in the iPhone app, why not the iPad). Thanks for all your hard work guys.

If all the old men on all the production committees in Tokyo would grant straight per view royalty streaming licenses with Crunchyroll, then CR would have all the shows broadcasting this season.

Indeed, if if and buts were Candies and Nuts, we'd all have a Merry Christmas.

Saying what market share the iPhone would have without the premium pricing model ignores the fact that its the premium pricing model that refunds the R&D. There's no guarantee that it would be the same device without the premium pricing.

And of course, the the explicit and sometimes arbitrary restrictions on what can be sold in the official iPhone online stores is also part and parcel of what the iPhone is.

That's definitely true. However, the Apple App Store is still leaps and bounds beyond anything that the Android market has. The iPhone is by far a superior product. Every iPhone gets updated to the newest version of software at the same time. Granted you have to plug in, and you have to update, where with Android its over the air.

The difference is, Google doesn't push out the update, your service provider does. If they want you to have the update. That's why Android software on phones range from version 1.0 through 2.1 and everything in between. They don't even tell you that you're buying out of date software, and they may never let you upgrade.

I weighed my options, when the Android phones came out... and I'm glad I stuck with my iPhone (and iPad)

Definitely - for pay extra so you don't have to shop around, iPhone has the competition beat with a stick.

Android is an OS licensed to multiple phone makers, so you can't just buy "Android" and get the same thing - you have to shop around for the right phone for what you want.

I'd rather have the freedom to, say, buy a particular online manga or anime, even if Apple does not approve of its contents. Of course, that's all hypothetical until my income gets back to where I can actually buy that kind of stuff on a regular basis.

List of thing I think are needed in updates.

1:favorites
2:search
3:button(form) to report problems, such as missing subs.
4:a setting to set subs on , and default language .


But it is a good start.
