I need a navigation menu while watching my anime episodes!!

its killing me that you guys don't have an in-episode menu like netflix does.

Even some of the button shortcuts don't work right like skipping episodes. I can only skip forwards to the end and to the next video and only skip to the beginning but not the previous episode? what kind of huge flaw is that? what happens when i accidentally skip to the next episode? i have to go out, find the anime, find the episodes, then the one i was on.

Even if i want to start an anime and i'm watching it i can't navigate episodes unless i go out to the animes source menu. plus they all start at episode one in the short cuts like que. whats the point of it being a short cut if i have to start at zero and right trigger my way up 50+ episodes? it's sad that its faster to manually search for the anime (after i remember the name) then having to get it to the last episode from there or any episode within the anime.

Plus even if i find the anime. find the episode i want in the middle or the end and watch it. I CANT ADD IT TO MY QUE FROM THAT EPISODE!! when i add it to my instant que it starts it all over from episode 1. So either way i have to ALWAYS start an anime episode and then right bumper myself to death to get it to the episode i want and pray to god i don't skip ahead because then there is no way to go back.

Could you guys please add something that lets me skip between episodes easier, forwards and backwards?
Could you also set it up so the instant Que shows the episodes as well as anime information so i can navigate to the episode i want to start with easier as well?
Could you also make it so the anime that i start watching and the episodes i stop at can be directly added to my que From exactly that anime and that episode and not just from the beginning of that anime?

Seriously guys. I'm paying you just like i do netflix and Xbox so i would appreciate an app that is easy to navigate and user friendly like those. not just something you threw together for the console. Please take your time when developing something like this especially if your expecting people to PAY for it. Otherwise I'm sure myself and others won't even bother to use this type of service if there is a free way that's much easier out there.

Oh, and last but not least i have seen a couple things about making the app not come with having an xbox gold membership and instead just having you guys put ads in the app itself. I sincerely hope you do not listen to these type of cheap and ignorant people. Anyone who watches anything online or elsewhere should be ashamed of themselves for even suggesting putting in ads to replace us paying for a service directly. I despise ads and they hinder your speed at watching anime. It would make the app even worse. Also i don't see netflix having any ads on their Xbox app. just saying.

Thanks for reading this and i hope you guys can work on some of these issues that I'm having and I'm sure others are as well.

I don't think this is even possible. All the apps appear to authenticate through the Xbox Live servers, so even services with otherwise free content, such as Crackle and Manga, are inaccessible to free users without a Gold subscription.

As for manipulating the Queue, I find it's always easier to do this through a computer, especially since series can't be rearranged inside the app. If you go to the Manage Queue section of the app, you can remove shows and browse the list of available videos easier than searching or browsing the list of all series.

I would like to see more control while playing videos as well, but I'd rather they fixed the skippage issue first.

You use the Xbox soon to read manga? I didn't notice that feature.

And as for the working around my que I haven't tried doing it online yet.
My main reason for the complaint was about the app itself and the issues with it.
For now I don't have any problems with the online since I don't use it as often.
I wanted to watch anime on my TVs and crunchyrolls Xbox app seemed to be the
Solution to that.

It defeats the purpose of this entire soon if I go online to watch the episodes.

And yes the skip back and forth in the app is probably the first thing I want them to fix as well.

Manga Entertainment (another anime distribution company), not CR Manga. Sorry for the confusion.

I don't watch the videos through a browser either, just use it to add/remove and re-order titles on my queue.
