Idk If this is in the right spot or not...

I love watching crunchyroll on the go using their app and started thinking. One of the factors that ensures good customer experience when people use your app is the overall look/feel/design of the app and the UI.

I just wanted to hear your guy's opinion on the current crunchyroll app for android. Do you like the way the UI feels and looks? Is it time for a redesign? How about the overall performance of the app? What are some things you like or dislike about the current app and what would your suggestions be for improvement?

I only wish they would update it to material design since Google has announced Lollipop. I stated imagining what it would like so I made a mockup design of it. Let me know what you guys think. (*Disclaimer: I'm not a UI designer so be easy on me please lol)

I might mockup more screens or make a gif/video showcasing some animations too possibly.

I like the APP personally. I have never had any issues with it and it runs smoothly on my phone and tablet.

I think it's great, not that I've used it all that much.
Downloaded it to watch One Piece while I was on vacation last month, but that's about it.
(I use the manga app all the time though.)
Besides adding the option to browse the forums without a web browser... There's not much I can think of when it comes to improvement. But it would be a nice if they freshened it up with a better layout. I like the design you posted.

I really like the app.
This year at school they started letting us use phones at lunch so I could catch up on my shows during lunch.

As far as the User-Interface goes I rather like it. It is simple but usable. The perfect balance for a low processor little machine that I call a phone.

So overall, I don't really see any reason to change the app. It's pretty grand as is.

The app is ok. I use it to chromecast it to my TV. I would say having the search available at the top of the screen should be added.

When viewing shows alphabetical you currently have to scroll from the top if you want to get to any show. Being able to search or select what letter to start from would help.

The ability to create a playlist and just play shows back to back would be awesome.

Yeah I'm hurting without chromecast at college right now lol but luckily I can stream on my TV using my playstation. I think a playlist option would be amazing!

My only complaint is there is no search when browsing.
Which is really annoying when you're watching an older anime. Or looking for something new to watch.

Thanks! I appreciate it! Yeah I agree, idk how plausible it is to code the forum inside of the native app without having to use the browser but that's something I thought about too

Using the forum on my phone is a pain

It's not perfect, but I always make sure to have it. I mainly use it for short series when I'm bored on the go.

I watch primarily via the app and therefore don't visit the forum often. I think if it had a forum function, it may help me take advantage. I do love watching with my chromecast through the app though!

I would enjoy the following,
- a forum feature
- a GB-to-GB/Inbox feature
- access to comments on videos
- Manga accessibility (although I use Manga Rock to read my Manga on my phone, others may enjoy the feature)
