The crunchyroll app on my Apple TV updated today and it has the new interface. I use the premium service. I have some questions:

I don't see my history anymore. Has this gone away?

When I click on a title it immediately plays the current selection. But I don't see a way to go to the episode list or a way to remove a title from my queue. How do I get to the episode page from a title in my queue?

Just in general, is there some documentation on the app revision?

Also when you play an episode and finish it doesn't record that you viewed it

This new interface is horrible. Hard to see what category you're in without turning on midnight mode. No history. No episode list from my queue. No dates. It was better before even with the broken autoplay. Please fix or roll it back to the previous.

i can't choose an episode to play. now that episodes 1-10 of dragonball super have been added, its forcing me to watch those, i can't start back at 50 something where i was.

Update is awful, how could they possibly have missed something like this?

If you go to the Home tab, you can find Dragon Ball Super under Popular, and that will let you access the episode list. For lesser know shows, unfortunately, you will have to go to the browse or search tabs. The "My Queue" tab seriously needs a complete overhaul.


At least I can super easily get to the latest episodes of the top 5 shows in my queue from the Top Shelf. And also happy that the Updated section of the Home tab updates without having to switch tabs (which was how I used to do it on Apple TV) or force quit the app (which seems how I have to do it on iOS.) Though I haven't had the time to test it with a show that has just been released yet.

This new version is almost unusable,
and not due to bugs but because the interface is just so completely lacking in basic functionality.

Surely they must have done some testing on it before releasing right...
Because from here it feels like none of the developers or testers bothered trying to use it before releasing it.

At first I liked the Play Next UI that comes up at the end of the episode (with Auto Play off), but on a couple shows I've watched it cuts off some important subtitles and visuals that show during the last 5 secs of the episode. Maybe instead this should pop up after the episode has fully completed.

The new interface is structured in such a way that it appears to be an attempt at reducing the amount of streaming on the site. If this is not the case, it's terribly incompetent programming. It's extremely difficult to browse since they removed the matrix and loaded shows into categories. Browsing through the home tab is also painful, since you have to browse a couple of hundred shows in a linear list. The queue starts at the latest show, instead of pointing going to the top of a list, so reviewing the last show is not easy. There is no option to restart at the beginning without scrolling back.
