I have an Idea for the CrunchyRoll app on Android, IOS, and Windows Phone 8 that I wanted to share.
Part1) My experience with the CR app
Part 2) My idea for the CR app

Part 1)
My thoughts on the Windows Phone 8 app:
First I have a Nokia Lumia 1520 (WP8) and the CR app on Windows Phone feels very outdated and forgotten. There are black borders around the menu screen and the video player. The app on windows phone was last updated on 05/26/2012. This is probably why there are black borders. This is very annoying and needs to be updated. Also I recently tried to watch Kill la Kill episode 22 about thirty minutes after it released and it would not play so I had to get out of bed and watch it on my computer (The episode released around 1:30 am). I am not sure if this is a problem with all CR mobile apps but should be addressed regardless.

Part 2)
My idea for the CR app is that the app should be a full. What I mean by full is that it should have the Shows, Manga, News, Forums, Store, Notifications Comments, and Inbox built in. There should also be an instant message feature for Members to talk to other Members. If the app was updated to do all of these things then CR would be the "Facebook", "YouTube", and "Amazon" of anime.

What does everyone think?
