Ok thanks. I haven't had premium for a while, just wanted to make sure before subscribing again.

HD is great, of course, but I can't say I'm a fan of the automatic quality switching. Generally videos look great (I assume on 720p), but when it switches to the highest quality (I assume 1080p) the videos start lagging, probably because my phone isn't powerful enough. And then there are moments where the quality suddenly drops so much I can barely read the subtitles. So, like I said, it's great that there now is HD support, but a manual quality switch would be greatly appreciated.

Totally support the idea of manual switch. I can see that the quality of the videos is improved (it is extremely noticeable in the subtitles) but i think it's an overall downgrade in the user experience because the app feels a lot clunkier. It takes forever to press the skip/rewind buttons and to start streaming and lately I started to have a weird issue where the videos are played twice, one on top of the other. Also i think the battery consumption skyrocketed since the last update making it harder to actually use the app on my phone unless i'm plugged to a charger constantly.

Now I understand why each episodes are taking more megs. My problem is, I have 6 gigs a month on my phone, is it possible for it to not be HD? Like I can choose?

I watched all of the latest Shirobako and Durarara last night in HD and it was so beautiful. It only had issues at one point where quality dropped to the equivalent of an 8-bit game for about 5 seconds, but otherwise it performed smoothly. I was so excited when I saw the clean clear lines. I'm on a Samsung Galaxy S4 and was on wifi. I can't wait to try it on my tablet.

A manual switch would be nice. I have a crap connection, and android streaming used to be the best option for me. The quality was decent, and I could just pause and let a good bit of an episode load and enjoy without having to worry about a stuttering stop and go stream.

Now, I can't do that anymore, and I have to watch through an episode where the quality will go into some super duper low-res mode and back into a decent looking mode along with occasional stuttering. It's pretty bad for us with crap connections, and it wasn't before this. A manual switch would hopefully help (as long as the app behaved like it had for so long).

My stream is continually filled with interruptions. So sorry but no thank you. I prefer to have settable options for HD and SD if the bandwith is low.

Please let us choose the quality! I really don't need to burn up 300mb per 20 minutes episode on my data plan just for anime!

I like this, my only problem is with how long it takes CR to upload new episodes on mobile. I can watch same day on my pc or ps3 but it can take days to see it on my Tab or galaxy.
