First of all, I will apologize beforehand if there is already a similar topic regarding this subject. I did a cursory search and found nothing recent or close to what I wanted to discuss.

I've used the Crunchyroll app for both the Xbox 360 and the PS3 and I've got a few questions about features that seem exclusive to each platform but should be present on both.

Exclusive to PS3:
- You can browse through episodes for series that are in your queue.
- You can press one of the shoulder buttons to quickly shift to the first/last series in your queue.

Exclusive to 360:
- You can use shoulder buttons to quickly scan through series in your queue (like tabbing through 4 series instead of each one individually).

Not yet a feature: manipulating your Queue, as in changing the order of the shows in your queue.

Can the apps be changed to add these features? I assume so. I just don't know how difficult these changes would be and how much effort it would take (and time = money).

Some of these features may be system exclusive due to the app's overall presentation on each system. For instance the button that allows you to browse through episodes on the PS3 app (square) is mapped to a different option on the 360. On the Xbox that button (X) instead allows you to go straight to the home screen. The thing is you're usually not more than two layers away from the home screen when browsing anime, and only one layer deep if you're browsing your queue, so for the most part the home button (X) is almost unnecessary since you can usually just back out (B button) once and get to home, twice if you're not browsing your queue.

Speaking of Home, it's different for each system. The PS3's CR App has a sidebar with My Queue and History, where pressing the Triangle button brings up a Main Menu and going to a new page (Home/Anime/Drama/Search/Settings) changes the items in the side bar. The 360 CR App has a layout similar to the Xbox 360's home screen where each section (Featured/Anime/Drama) has a separate page that you can tab through with the shoulder buttons, and each page has a group of windows instead of items on a sidebar.
