Typically I'd say your app is 5/5 and I don't see anything wrong with it, but the fact that there are no ratings on the anime in the app really does need to be addressed. I shouldn't have to open up safari and clumsily navigate crunchyroll.com every time I want to see if an anime has decent ratings. I'm sure lots of other people have to do the same thing because ratings are paramount in deciding if a series is worth watching.

i'm not sure about the app being 5/5, but that seems a pretty frivolous reason to rate it a 2/5.

i remember people complaining that the app is not working well for them (and yes, you guessed it, from non-premium users)

I agree with namealreadytaken. It seems an odd reason to drop a rating down by a whole 60%. For me this is not an important feature. In general ratings are not "paramount" for me when deciding what show to watch, and I find CR's ratings to be especially not-very-useful.

I'll add my voice to those who don't find CR's ratings that useful in determining if a series is worth watching.

Going on ratings alone is a bad idea I still am puzzled as to why people do..

I generally avoid all ratings in any medium. Are the people rating the show/game/food etc have the same taste to me? The general answer is nope.
Some of the higher rating shows on here I wont touch will a stick.

People downrate shows that are similar just to spite.
"You should totally watch blah instead it's the best show like ever... this show isn't on the same level 1 star. (even though I have never watched it and never will.)"
Or before episode 1 is even released 5/5 because it will be the best show ever.

What is the lowest rating show on here? The lowest one I could find that has been rated was 2.5stars and even then it doesn't seem that low. For a 5min thing the few episodes is it has is hardly a life waster.

The lowest non 5min show/motion manga rating was 4 stars. So just dive in lol.
