Why can't you get an app for Fire TV, it doesn't even update as much as apple does. Are you kidding me? It's one thing for you guys to say no to the actual kindle device, since their operating system changes like the phases of the moon, but come on you have a tv app for everyone else. Funimation Now even put out their Fire Tv app months ago.

Well I did. Finally the fixed it, as it had been broken under Nougat. At least for me on my Nexus Player. It got its own visual refresh too.

October 14th my Nexus Player says.

The queue is straight up ruined. Not being able to select what I want to play in a show without going out and manually searching for it is ridiculous. Especially when you have a show like Dragon Ball Super where you're regularly releasing new and old episodes at the same time, just as an example.

This update does nothing but make the app far LESS convenient and clunky.

The fact it does that is also super silly when if you go into any show, the very first option you're on is the next episode. So what was the point?

You took out one step to the process but in doing so gave us a far worse product.

The new app has some serious usability issues in its current incarnation (at least on my Apple TV):

(1) There doesn't appear to be any indication of which panel you've chosen in the topnav; you currently have to recognize the content.
(2) The Alphabetical list is now almost unusable, for several reasons:
(a) Titles of anime aren't shown, so you have to recognize the cover art. That's not a problem for art that shows the title prominently like Dog&Scissors, but you'd really have to know what Erin is, for example
(b) It takes _much_ longer to scroll through a single strip list to the latter part of the alphabet than it did to scroll through a panel showing six anime in a row. Alphabetical "jump" controls as in the Web app would help here (so I could get to, say, Kids on the Slope without having to scroll past every series from 07-Ghost on by clicking on a 'K')
(c) That's made worse by the fact that you have to pause every so often to load the next group of anime titles. Sending the count of shows first so the list could at least scroll properly while titles load would help immensely here.
(3) Filters on the Search command would make it more useful. (Could I at least restrict to "Anime" or "Drama"?)
(4) Live action shows don't appear to be accessible at all anymore except by searching.

I'm looking forward to a .0.1 release soon, I hope :)

Just arrived on my Apple TV last night..... wish it hadn't ..... to be honest it's rubbish.

No bookmark feature on mine, most of the "settings" are greyed out and the rest do nothing.

It's lost all of my history, the queue is still there and a lot more unmanageable as there is no history content, selecting an item from Queue means starting from Episode 1.

There is absolutely no indication which sub menu you are on in the main screen, you have to guess by content.

Another annoying thing is that halfway through an episode you are sometimes suddenly returned to the start, along with a couple of minutes before the end it offers the next episode and won't go away, very annoying as you can't read the sub-titles.

It's changed viewing from being a pleasure to being a total nightmare.

FYI I have a 44mb fibre connection, and use the 1080p output on my monitor/tv.

Please, please can I have to option to use the old App at least that works.

Just got the update last night. I really haven't used it enough yet to have too many issues, though I agree that scrolling through the queue is a pain and we need the history back. But the one thing that really irks me right now, maybe I just haven't figured out how to prevent it.... The Next Episode pop up is at the bottom of the screen, completely covering the subtitles when characters are talking. Please move it back to the top!!

And the Midnight Mode... Thanks for making sure it was there. I don't recall if there was a setting for it before or if you decided to change the default to blinding white while "adding" this mode (just like Apple in their last annoying update), but the option to keep it a non-migraine-inducing color is greatly appreciated.

OH that's so CUTE!!

Maybe, JUST MAYBE, they will FIX the Android TV app ... one day

Yea, actually FIX and UPDATE one their apps.

What a concept ... ya know ... customer service

Yea, I'm dreaming big here

PS and "Yes" the update only removed the "Report this App" immediate crash. I guess they got tired of getting notified that it was freaking crashing upon launch. Now it just "Grey Screens" your TV ... Pure Awesomeness.
