The last one was supposed to be App not Abomination....

And i cant edit polls, so... w/e...

The first version is still vastly superior to any other iterations.

Freudian slip?

Am I the only one who likes the new CR Roku App? I mean, I'm okay if I'm a lone wolf here, but wow... I don't think it's really that awful. Now Geocities... that was awful.

Yes. Please change it back.

It was much better when it functioned like the Netflix app. Now fast-forwarding and rewinding is a buffery nightmare. I thought the last iteration of the app was almost perfect. Does anyone know why it was changed, was there some critical flaw that was unapparent to users?

Lack of HD, I believe.

Ugh. Thanks, that's what I heard in another forum. That's could be bad news then b/c I'm guessing they would have implemented in the pervious version of they could. Oh well, back to Chromcasting until this is fixed.

So is that confirmation that you need an internet connection that supports full HD in order to be able to stream at all on Roku? What a shitty fucking design.

Works identicaly, if not better (choose to resume or restart) than the PS3 app. Finally brings a fully usable and HD Roku experience to my bedroom TV. (Very useful in Autumn/Winter)

It "feels like Crunchyroll" to me. The old app felt like nothing else I used. (it was the only thing I bought me Roku for, and was on the verge of trashing it owing to lack of HD)

I'm using it a lot more than I was previously. I'm a lot less likely to haul my arse out of bed to move into the lounge mid Anime-session. (This may not be good for my waistline...)

The latest update doesn't support Spanish, so the app is useless for me now.

better than the original update but still a piece of junk compared to the old app.

My only main issue is the remote control and how the app completely uses its own method for its app. It's clumsy and I'm constantly having to close the app because I accidently switch to the next episode on my remote and can't exit out if it because the app says so. Also, taking away previews when skipping ahead is a big bummer too. If those two things get fixed I would probably pay again, but I can't justify the price when majority of time I'm watching shows on my roku, not my pc, I get frustrated watching a show. That isn't a good experience and it makes me not bother watching any shows on crunchyroll because of it. Let's hope they get their act together.
