Dear Crunchyroll,
When I used to hold on an element in my history, I was able to click videos and go to the next video. Now, I have to remember the name of the series, back all the way out to the main menu, start a search, type in the anime in question, open the videos, and go to the next video.
So, is there a simpler way to play the next video from a video in my history that is not in my queue. (Your queue is poorly designed and always puts the newest stuff at the bottom. I realize that does encourage me to go through my 'backlog' first... but I don't, nobody does, and you shouldn't encourage such things, really, it just costs you bandwidth).
The options I have are 'play', which plays a video I have already watched. Share, which shares a video I have already watched, and information (which takes me to a page that has a small bit of information about that single video, and a button that duplicates the functionality of your 'play' button).
Please update your app to fix this poor UI design and go through the credentials of your UI designer. I'll wait.
*taps foot*

Mutters: "This is no way to compete with hulu... and where's my bandwidth setting? Is there none because of the subtitles, I can fix that, heck, I can give you code to fix that. MIT licensed no less. You'd have solid subtitles at dialup speeds, woo. I guess I'll pointlessly watch the same episode... wait, I actually started the same episode again, great, I'm watching the same thing over again, this is great for your bandwidth usage."

Oh, I almost forgot, videos have been hanging, I suspect it's a bandwidth issue, as I only have so much bandwidth. (850kbps by my calculations)

And I'm not watching the same episode again, it won't load. :(

Wow, your ad's are hanging. *mwahahahaha, time to tell those advertising*
Um... crunchyroll... your ad's for crunchyroll premium are hanging.

You know, crunchyroll, I used to watch subtitled anime in 320 * 240 on a palm, I'm not picky about resolution. Seriously, people would cringe at the resolutions I would watch anime on, which means every ad I watch just gives you more profit. Am I just going to have to buy a cell phone with a lower resolution display?

Still loading... think I'll go play videogames for a while...

This doesn't address most of that, but the /home/queue has controls to rearrange it in any order you like, so you can pop shows to the top or drag and drop them, too. They don't have to remain at the bottom.

I love the design of the queue, though, one click and pop to top! Perfect. Too bad it can't be done in the app. Then again, where would you put it.

I doubled checked just to make sure but I am on the newest version of 1.1.4 and the 'Videos" option is still there for everything in my history. If you just hit the 3 vertical dots on the right side, go to videos, it gives you a list of every episode in the show. As for bandwidth, under settings there is a video quality option with the options of auto high and low.
