Simps

It fun to watch live streams but the twitch mod aka the people who run twitch are big simps
Too many ads
by McD_ckens on 2021/04/14 18:36
This app has so many ads now it’s a joke. Imagine first getting on this app opening up a stream and watching 2 minutes of ads then switching to another streamer right after the ads end, just to watch another 2 minutes of ads. The amount of ads has completely turn me off to twitch now. Another big company ruining services. Google ruined YouTube now Amazon has done the same for twitch, remember back when you could pay to not watch ads at least you can even skip on YouTube. The rest apps quality besides ads is what you would expect to see from a large company like Amazon.

This is a great streaming app to get streamed sniped
Good but...
by IdkSomeRandomDude on 2021/04/14 03:35
A big problem that this has that Androids and the computers don’t have is that there is a 30 second delay when watching the streams. I don’t know how long that problem has been there but ever since this iOS update, there has been a 30 sec delay when watching twitch streams on iphone.

Notifications
by eba riz13347 on 2021/04/14 01:31
I love every aspect about this app. The only thing is the notifications. Sometimes I’ll get them super early. Sometimes I’ll get them 10-15 minutes after the stream started. But sometimes I won’t get the notifications at all.

Issues with my phone
by bbyfwiend on 2021/04/13 04:20
Several instances where I hop on the app to watch people stream. And regardless of wifi, 5G, service, etc it will not allow me to click the play button and watch. The chat works and updates real time but I cannot watch the live video of people I follow. I hit the play button and it just never changes or does anything no matter how many times I hit it. I have restarted my iPhone, closed the app and reopened it, I have the latest update. Not sure why this keeps happening.

There’s a glitch that every time I join a discord voice chat and I go back to my twitch the screen is black and I can’t see the stream anymore pls fix this.
Mostly good
by Lilouie_390 on 2021/04/13 00:58
I think that this app is generally good, though there is a significant delay when watching on mobile vs on pc. This isn’t a major problem and isn’t a very big deal, although it can make chatting harder. Also, I wish that there were more channel setting on mobile because it is somewhat hard to navigate through all of the menus, and there aren’t many options when attempting to edit a channels page. Other then these few minor issues, the app is very good and runs smoothly for me.

Glitch, glitches, & more glitches
by Redvic50 on 2021/04/12 23:22
You may see a little video or hear a little sound sometimes. The customer service will not fix your viewing nor any of your technical issues. Twitch was not ready for the flood of new broadcasters and subscribers this year. They are currently running a promotion that does not deliver. I’m disappointed. The emotes are cute but the words on the emotes are so tiny that you can’t read them.
Bad timing of ads
by Koodude111 on 2021/04/12 21:36
Twitch is great and all but can you guys stop playing ads RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF A GAME??????
It’s has improved a lot
by The Hungary taco on 2021/04/12 21:05
The twitch app used to be trash. But I recently starting getting back into it, and I must say it has definitely has improved. It rivals youtube in how user friendly it is. Also the fact that the mini player is sick is a bonus as well. I can’t think of anyway to improve it.
APP IS GARBAGE
by LIL BOAT 1 on 2021/04/12 20:15
Not a single stream loads. I have good wifi & continues not to load.
Mediocre, at best
by BobbieShroom on 2021/04/12 20:03
If it wasn’t for the somewhat decent layout & ease of access the Twitch app offers, I wouldn’t be using it; that’s honestly the only reason I haven’t switched to just using my browser instead of the app. The app crashes at least once a day and upcharges all purchases. My biggest complaint is that after updating IOS a few months back, I have been unable to use Picture in Picture in the Twitch app, only audio background works no picture overlay.

No Twitch Prime Option
by Junebughigh on 2021/04/12 16:37
There is no option to use Twitch Prime. Like why? Is it because of Apple? I’m using this app on iPad and even the mobile web version is bad. I really enjoy the app, but no option to use my Prime Subscription is why I’m giving 3 stars. Only this strange sub token thing really bites. Then it is way more expensive. SMH! Please at least add the option to use my Prime Sub.

Great App
by AloneMahaone2334 on 2021/04/12 16:02
I know twitch has been around for a while but I didn’t feel like I needed another broadcasting app. However, since 2020 I’ve been on twitch a lot since there is so much time now lol. I gotta say, it is a great way to connect with your favorite content creator. I’ve been noticed by the smallest content creator to the big ones who either have a huge following on twitch or are famous from another platform. My only issue is this app lags. Say I start watching a stream on my iPhone and then I switch to my laptop, the steam will be delayed. Other than that, it is a good app to make some friends for discord. I’m an introvert so I don’t really talk in chat but I’ve seen many people become friends in chats. Just to note: I think memberships and bits are pretty expensive and they run out super quick like I think after a month but that’s just my opinion lol. Okay.

Chat only mode needs update
by 5FingerFan on 2021/04/12 13:51
Chat only mode should make chat the entire screen instead of exactly the same size as when watching the stream. Makes chat only mode pointless
I like it but...
by Trindalas on 2021/04/12 12:25
I really only use this for a few streamers (the Irish Lads mostly, plus a couple others) and I love it when it isn’t having issues. Unfortunately I’ve been having problems lately where the app just randomly freezes while a stream is going, and only the audio continues. I have to minimize or close it to fix it, which makes me have to go back into the stream (losing any conversations I had going or potential replies from the streamers) and also getting another ad for ones I’m not subbed to. I am on an iPhone X by the way. That and the inability to use my prime sub via the app. Please fix these issues, they really detract from the experience.
Bugs
by Gv247 on 2021/04/12 03:45
Sometimes I have issues with the application that forces me to restart. There’s a frozen screen or a lag and everything becomes muted. I know it’s not my internet but I really enjoy this application. Hope this bug is fixed soon

Playback needs improvement
by Waiting For App To Load on 2021/04/12 02:05
I’m surprised by how slow the fast forward and rewind features function. It’s poor. And I noticed when I open up a different app and need to check something outside of twitch for a minute when I go back to the video that I was watching and twitch it’s all the sudden been set back to reset and I no longer at my place. That’s incredibly frustrating and deeply surprising. YouTube for example doesn’t have this problem. Doesn’t Amazon on twitch? You think they could do better. I’m sure they could. Needs improvement. Makes me want to go elsewhere for content. I don’t have time for this
The soul reason I don’t watch streams
by SgtSoupSwagg on 2021/04/12 01:26

The app is over all great but i think you need to make it more accessible to delete streams on mobile.

Unable to Interact
by BenguinThePenguin on 2021/04/11 15:26
Twitch is great, but the mobile app has problems. The biggest one, in my eyes, is the lack of ability to expand text you can’t see. When I click on a stream, and the title is so long that it cuts itself off (it doesn’t have to be very long to be cut off on mobile), there is no way to see the full title. A “read more” button should exist, to expand hidden text. This problem is a subset of a bigger problem in the app: the lack of ability to interact. The user cannot zoom in on things, cannot expand hidden text; there are a limited number of things the user can do. Next, the ability to close a stream. Right now, the closest thing I can do is pause the stream; there should at least be an “x” button to close a stream.

There being hungry feed for their own attention where there clearly staring at chat,Streaming different schedules to get fans to see them more and also liking people post for no reason and commenting on people post on Twitter and Instagram and there toxic to the community. Another thing to is that Katgunn,Katlink,Kaceytron,,Luxlilith,Yuuie,Lindsayelyse there all being sexually and getting on inappropriate time for the viewers to wake up to watch them in the middle of night and afternoon early to watch them instead of doing something else for once but mostly want to hop on inappropriately times so they can watch them and do porn instead of taking care of their own women and self. So where are their husbands and parents at. Sorry for bad English

by saramrandall on 2021/04/11 01:49
I love the app and how it's pretty easy to use. It would be so much better if there were an option to sort a streamers videos so you could easily go back to they're their older content without having to scroll through hundreds of videos to go back to the beginning. It's a little glitchy but all apps can be. It would also hep if you could have a list of the the streamers you're subscribed to or following so you could find them instead of having to type their names in and search for them. Keep it up though, love twig!
Mobile is a garbage experience
by Hank_Venture on 2021/04/10 23:36
You can't use your Twitch Prime on mobile. To sub normally, you have to purchase sub tokens which are more expensive than subbing through a desktop/laptop. Bits are also more expensive on mobile for some unknown reason. There's a roughly 20 second delay on mobile so you see chat reactions before something happens. Opening clips from chat forces you to close the stream and go back to it through the home screen, which then forces you to view another ad if you're not subbed to that channel.
Great

Absolutely Disappointed
by XQCFANBOY on 2021/04/09 13:22
Twitch it’s gotten to a point in your site that I can’t even enjoy any streams or any content for a matter of fact on your site. I was just trying to watch my favorite streamer when I got hit with ads. The problem is though is that the streamer never uses the ad button. So, now I’m sitting here getting three ads and it’s during an extremely exciting what the streamer is doing and I’m sitting here watching ads. And to top it all off it hardly ever loads for me properly so I’ll miss like 10 min of a stream. I would really like for something to change about this devastating problem. However, I know nothing will change because it’s Twitch. I now always have to wait on YouTube for clips to surface and watch them there because it’s not nearly as bad and I can enjoy my time. It’s just really sad to see Twitch like this , and also know that this is the norm which is also sad. I really have no words to describe how depressed I am just trying to get on a steam and not being able to for a good 10 min. Sincerely a sad reviewer.

Great app but bugs need to be fixed
by Bakenpiglit on 2021/04/09 04:09
I really love the twitch app for when I watch streams on the go but it does have a few bugs that are annoying. For one, only when I use the iPad app, anytime I type in chat the audio cuts out completely and I have to restart the app to get audio back in the stream. Another thing that happens is similar but when I type in chat sometimes the audio doesn't cut out completely but it cuts for a few seconds then comes back but its 3-10 seconds delayed from the video. As you can imagine its pretty annoying to not be able to use chat without having to restart the app and miss what the streamer is saying. Another bug is on the iPhone app. Sometimes when I click a notification for a stream and go into the app, the following page is frozen and I cant tap anything.
Almost perfect

by mickiiaa on 2021/04/08 00:45
Honestly, I don’t stream, but it gives us easy access to the gaming community. Twitch make things easier for me to find my type of interest, which I am really greatful. My suggestion is that to make chat the same time with the steam, but it might be difficult to develop, so I can stay back on that one. Keep up the excellent work Twitch Gang!

Stupid bots
by MmMk9 on 2021/04/07 13:25
This app is great cuz it lets me watch some of my favorite streamers but a constant issue that keeps popping up, especially for small streamers, is the stupid follow bots which can get them banned. There isn’t a bot mod to keep things like this from happening and it makes the whole streaming/watching experience horrible for everyone involved. There should be something in place to keep nonsense like this from happening at all. Twitch needs to be more proactive about helping out their streamers

by CALABAZAXBX on 2021/04/07 00:31
I can’t believe the chat keeps crashing so often, it won’t refresh new messages and your messages won’t go through, have to close and open the app to get it fixed for just a little while till it crashes again. Also, incredible high delay compared to other Twitch apps (Android) or PC version. It makes it un enjoyable at all! This is not a new issue!
It was great until a recent update kinda ruined it for me
by NinjaMaster21 on 2019/08/09 10:59
One of the things that I like about Twitch is being able to clip moments from my favorite streamers, being able to edit and trimming the clips was always fun to do and letting you see how the clip turned out during and in the end of the trimming process was always satisfying. However after I recently updated the app the clips that I, well clipped, weren’t showing during the trimming process making it hard for me to know what unnecessary fluff I need to take out. So I pretty much gotta leave the clip unedited and hope that I timed it right which isn’t fun for me if I don’t know how it turns out after trimming it. I don’t know if I’m the only one with this problem but if I’m not and others have this problem and they can fix that issue that’ll be great and I might give it a 5 star because I actually like the app. Update: a recent update fixed it, so now I’m happy and will give it 5 stars.
Some problems
by Crazykid0416 on 2020/05/26 18:56
A bug still exists that has for a long time where when in dark mode, certain movements or actions can cause the app to switch to light mode, which takes a long time and 4 menu pages to flip through to turn it back on which is inconvenient and slightly annoying. Another issue exists that when you are watching a stream in full screen mode and you double tap to open chat, and you click on a chatter’s name, a menu will pop up that allows you to gift them a sub, or look at their info etc. The problem is that when this menu pops up when in fullscreen (phone sideways), there’s no way to close the menu; you can’t click anywhere to get rid of the menu as it takes up the entire screen, and the only way to close it is to flip your device and go back to non-fullscreen, tap anywhere outside of the menu, and it’ll close. Again, this is an issue that has a solution but requires a lot of time spent to undo which can be annoying for users. A simple fix would be to add a close button for this menu, both in fullscreen and non-fullscreen. Similar to the last issue, when you tap on emotes in chat, the only way to close the menu is to click outside the menu which can be difficult/inconvenient. The same solution exists where all that is needed for this problem is to add exit buttons to menus.
A major suggestion
by MoonlitSkyPaintingBlue on 2018/11/22 15:19
I did not know this app defaults to auto play. Not to say there’s anything wrong with auto playing streams themselves but I was not aware of it and as a result I assumed a stream would end if I let the phone be. Halfway through a late night stream, I fell asleep without worries. However, I woke up and found my phone went from 100% to 13%. The streams stopped it from naturally falling into sleep mode after I unplugged it and set it to low power mode. This night of nonstop video playing no doubt harmed my phone battery’s maximum capacity, meaning it will be quicker to drop to 0% in the future and I did not intend for that. My suggestion is that you please make a pop up for mobile that stops the stream, live or otherwise, and asks the viewer “Are you still there?” after one or two auto plays have already occurred without outside input. If there’s no further response, the phone can fall into sleep mode. If there is someone still watching, they’ll tap ‘Yes’ and keep watching. Anyway, I’ve turned off auto play in settings, so this problem won’t happen for me again. But I still I wouldn’t want any people starting out with this app to make the same mistake I did.
New update
by A Consistent Twitch Viewer on 2020/12/08 04:13
I have been a bit frustrated with the new update for the twitch mobile app. I have an iPhone 10, so the corners of my screen are rounded off and when I go to full screen the top and bottom of the video get cut off, along with things being blocked by where the camera is placed. This used to not be a problem because they left a blank space on each side of the screen so that it all fit in frame, but now especially while watching games like Minecraft where the bottom of the video is very important(the players inventory and the chat box) is impossible to see. This can be frustrating to watch and take away from my overall experience as a viewer. Another bug I have encountered is that often when I start to type in chat it will make the stream lag, causing the video and audio to get out of sync. Reloading/refreshing the page always fixes it, but leaves me waiting through an ad. This makes me less inclined to interact in chat, which is one of the best features of twitch. Besides these two bugs I absolutely love this app and the community that Twitch has created!
Unstable
by Sarastartree on 2017/12/14 00:23
While it often works and is still a very valid, not at all half-baked alternative to the website, it has been fairly unstable for me since day one. I’m nowhere near a frequenter of Twitch, just occasionally watch the streams of people like Vinesauce and Vargskelethor, but it’s become harder to handle since the new iOS update that changed the layout of the menu you get when you double-click the home button. Whenever I decide to play the stream in the corner of my screen, it pauses, and sometimes simply disappears. Today has been one of the worst days I’ve used it, as I can only spend, say, a minute on the app before it freezes up and forces me out. This isn’t the first time this has happened, either. Maybe the solid third time, and I’m fully unable to access the streams for more than maybe 20 seconds before it quits out. I’ve tried resetting my iPad and redownloading the app, but to no avail. I’m certain it’s an issue with the servers at this point, and a very pesky one. Please fix this as soon as possible, so I can actually use your app. Thank you.
Unstable as of late
by Shane247 on 2018/11/26 05:19
I used to never have problems with twitch, it was one of the apps I used to always get on and just watch a stream for fun. After a while I left because had life things to handle. But recently I decided it was a good time to get back on twitch. Was I wrong, yes and no. While the audio is fine without video, I’ve had troubles watching a stream and have audio at the same time. While the video plays just fine, it’s the audio that don’t work well on the stream. While I’ve been thinking maybe it could be my end, but when it’s been constant, I just don’t see the point in watching anything. Another thing, you removed the option to switch from 720 to something like 480, how can you test something to make sure it’s not your end if you actually take away a feature that was fine to begin with. I get the times are changing and technology is getting more and more advanced, trust me, I was born in the age of technology’s very beginnings of taking over. Just fix the stability of the app please, is that so much to ask. And please just add back a 480p button just for the users who can’t watch in 720.
Very solid but still loads of room for improvement
by gqerez on 2020/08/24 20:21
I have been viewing twitch more and more and honestly the best twitch experience on mobile is this app. But there are a few things that if implemented, would greatly enhance the app. There have been a few times where I wanted to link my twitch and prime accounts but there is no option to do so on this mobile app. It would be great to be able to support my favorite creators with out worrying about missing a chunk of their stream. Overall there are a variety of features lacking on the app that really make me feel like I’m missing out while being a primarily mobile user. The only benefit to getting twitch prime on mobile is the crown symbol next to my name in chat. Besides lack of subscription options there is virtually no customization available except my profile picture. I know it’s not easy giving the pc experience on an app but the iOS app should be equal in features to computer. If they do so I believe many of the user base would prefer viewing from mobile.
I love this app but...
by JudeMan123 on 2020/01/21 20:14
Let me get this out of the way: almost all the problems with twitch are erased on a computer. Whether on the site or on the app, on a computer everything works perfectly. However, on the phone it lacks a lot of what it needs. You can’t subscribe with twitch prime for some reason, and it’s much harder to navigate on mobile than on pc. The other problems are the sub tokens they added and buying bits. Why did they add sub tokens? They’re just kind of stupid, why would I buy sub tokens before instead of just subbing to who I want? The last problem is bits. The price of bits makes no sense. Ive been told before it’s about a cent per bit, but then why is it seven dollars for 500 bits? That’s way more than the tax should be, and my only explanation is that twitch gets a little bit too greedy between the viewers and the streamers and tacks on unfair prices, making it harder for viewers to support streamers. Other than that, incredible app, I love watching streamers and talking to the twitch community that you can surround yourself with, it’s really incredible
Close to perfect
by Amazon Visa on 2019/09/20 01:56
If your into finds my quality content creators especially gaming Twitch is the place to be. The only thing that’s always driven me crazy to the point I almost gave only 4 stars is all the QUALITY broadcasters that are buried in such a saturated market. You must sift through hundreds to find a few hidden gems. “Partner” streams or “Featured” channels have put in the grind and deserve it but some of these other upstarts have no prayer to cut through the noise. With that said the majority of people sitting through directories do not take the time to sift to the streams at the bottom with little to no views. I find that to be the Consoles (XBOX & PS4) fault for making it so ez for any toxic 12 year old with a console can connect and upload toxic trash. So considering at the end of the day it’s not all on Twitch? I went ahead with 5 stars for the app. good for tips, & tricks for any gamer and other IRL streams as Well.
Great App..The worst Customer I’ve ever seen
by Jamalprince on 2019/03/25 16:46
Looking at the app from a developmental standpoint, the app is terrific. Outside of little things like not being able to change your profile picture, everything seems to run smoothly. However after having the app for a while I noticed that my email for some reason wasn’t linked to my profile. I tried to fix it from The Xbox app on the console but no luck. Then since I was already logged in on my phone,I tried it there, still no luck. I then logged out and that’s when I really started to get upset. My password and login info stopped working once I logged out then the reset emails weren’t sending and kept saying my account doesn’t exist. I thought I would email and it would be a 2 day fix...wrong! I’ve sent roughly 10 emails in almost 2 months and nothing from them at all. I received a bot reply saying I hope the problem fixed itself, when prompted to email back if it isn’t. They again just ignored my emails. The brand new game I wanted to stream is now 2 months old and I don’t even want to play it considering now no one wants to watch it. Twitch Customer Service officially ruined playing my games while streaming.
Feedback
by TheRealRawD on 2019/11/26 21:34
Needs improvement; Twitch could certainly use some new and fresh ideas in terms of viewers/viewing capabilities, native communication is basic at best yet struggles with latency throughout the app. When asked, the initial response given was from long time users of Twitch, which was great! others not so much mentioning several technical problems from namely the app in and of itself with a few other hiccups here and there as expected however Twitch in it’s entirety is a brilliant platform as well as a great way to showcase any and all of your talents if you will. Continually Twitch will keep providing us with UI glitches more often than not currently there is no way suggest anything aside from writing a long neutral review about said inability, currently there is no way (that I am aware of) to exit a video you’re streaming without closing the app one would think of this to taken care of already and maybe it is or their working on it, if not then the solution is right here, all of which could be provided at a small nominal fee 😉😏
Previous version better
by Jason6210001000 on 2018/08/26 14:32
The previous version was better in that it would remember games I last viewed. Now, I have to scroll to find the game. Though I did hate that it always showed most recent and it was all or none when deleting them, but oh well on that. If it’s possible to creat a favorites games list I haven’t looked for it, but apparently it doesn’t stand out either, for me anyway. I hate the new continue watching feature. I understand some might like it, but the only reason I watch a rerun is because I can’t find anything live I’d like to watch. And the only way to remove the continue watching is to watch them, fast forward to the end, then go back or to watch the remaining part. Why can’t I just delete items while they’re in the continue watching area. Plus, I have something stuck in continue watching because I apparently need to subscribe to watch it, so I can’t go into it and watch it or fast forward to get rid of it. Either let me disable continue watching or give me the ability to delete from that area, not by having to go into the video.
This must be out sourced to people who never used apps
by Barbblerelf on 2018/12/14 15:38
I love how I can sync accounts like twitch to my discord. That’s how you get into sub only discord’s and this app makes it so easy! Oh wait no it doesn’t. You can log into your twitch but it won’t show you ANY DISCORD CHANNELS. ok fine. I’ll log in online. Sorry no login screen on the home page of discord while on mobile. Fine I’ll dig in even more and find the most hard to find link online to log in. Now I need to spend 30 minutes clicking buses on a “I’m not a bot” window more times than it takes to log into a major bank account or credit report monitor. Awesome, now I should be logged in right? Nope. An error saying you’re on the wrong type of discord. Why do I need to log into a computer to check or join “connections” discord’s. Has no one in the company ever been a human. It’s insane. Use the app. More than just once. Try things normal people want to do. Fix the website. Realize mobile browsers aren’t flip phones anymore and give actual full features on the site instead of less than the app even gives. If discord didn’t have a monopoly I’d wonder how the hell theyre still in business
Needs polish
by lalaleman on 2020/01/20 06:18
I love having twitch on my phone, but in its current state, mobile twitch is strictly worse than twitch on PC. There are lots of annoying bugs and quirks that all culminate in making it really annoying to use. For some reason, there is always a delay between the stream and chat that doesn’t appear on PC. In a recent update they made it so your phone itself has to be in dark mode to make twitch dark mode too, instead of just letting you toggle it from settings. This makes it really annoying when you want to switch from one app to another and keep turning dark mode on and off. Also, sometimes when I’m using twitch in light mode, it will magically toggle onto dark mode when I turn my phone sideways and then go back to light mode when I turn it right side up. Another major problem is that you can’t go to a streamers channel while they are live, so if you want to unfollow them or turn off notifications you are forced to watch an ad every time. If twitch mobile actually worked properly then I would give it a 5 star review.
Possible bug
by fingersteam on 2021/02/06 16:37
I search for correct spelling and defenitions using the text chat feature while participating in a stream. When selecting text a popup > look up > my internet browser appears. When then going back to the twitch app the stream is in a small window. I select to maximize the stream (trying to not fat finger) and it closes the window. Now, my text I was working on is gone and I have to open the stream again. I have found my text to still be in the same stream like cache or something, but not always. Copying my text has been one measure to prevent losing my comment and minimizing the app > opening a browser and searching for the word that way is a workaround. USING LOOK UP TO SEARCH FOR A WORD DEFINITION SEEMS TO CAUSE INSTABILITY WITH TWITCH APP AND CRASHES THE STREAM (not every time, but enough to be bothersome). Hopefully this is making sense - cheers :]
What is going on at Twitch HQ?
by Cored on 2019/09/14 19:35
I’ve used the twitch iOS app primarily on an iPad. Each successive update seems to make it worse and worse. I tend to minimize twitch into a window while I work with other apps. In the past, this wasn’t a problem, the stream would keep playing and required minimal attention from me. Today, September 2019, not so much. The windowed mode of twitch on an iPad frequently becomes unresponsive, such that I need to completely close out the app and restart it. If ads play in windowed mode, I lose the window and have to re-open the stream I had open. A year or so ago, this wasn’t a problem. I could leave a twitch window running all day on my iPad without it crapping out within 30 minutes. Now, I frequently have to re-launch the app when it ‘breaks’. Unsurprisingly, when it breaks, I get to watch ads again. Please go back to the drawing board on this app. Go back two years, find what made it work so well, and implement it now. Today’s iOS twitch app is just a pile of s*it compared to how good it used to be.
Twitch prime running ads
by Miezejeski on 2018/10/24 02:24
I used to get so many hours of enjoyment out of this app as a twitch prime member. I could channel surf with ease and go back and forth between all of my favorite streamers. I loved the freedom of being able to watch any streamer I wanted for 30 second or 30 minutes. Now that they have introduced ads to twitch prime members, it makes this app almost unusable. To watch a 30 second ad almost every time I switch channels completely ruins the experience for me. I literally hesitate to open the app every time I want to watch one of my favorite streamers. I previously used this app for multiple hours a day and since the change I have only used it maybe 2-3 times. There needs to be an premium option to remove ads! Subscribing to individual channels doesn’t help. What I liked about twitch was the ability to watch more than a dozen streamers in a 30 minute watch session, freely surfing between channels. Please do something about this!! I want to use twitch again without ads! I would pay a similar price to what I pay for a Netflix or Sirius radio subscription to watch ad free.
Missing Key Functionality
by Krahnin on 2018/06/27 16:07
So, no issue with streaming performance, but either A) there is a LOT missing from the app, or B) it’s super un-intuitive and these things are impossible to find. Missing features include: - The ability to subscribe to a channel via mobile. - The ability to see existing subscriptions and when they expire. - The ability to change your profile picture. - The ability to easily get to a channel’s home page if they are live. (I am forced to go into the live video, often causing blaring audio even when my phone is silenced, and then have to poke around to find a way to get to the channel’s home screen and THEN I have to terminate the still playing video). - A means to set subscriptions to auto-renew. (Unable to find this on the web version either - maybe just a missing feature?). All in all, forcing me to log into the site severely inhibits the app’s on the fly functionality. I’d think these item would be a priority as the easier it is to manage things, the more likely people are to download/open the app. While not a huge amount of competition in this market, it just takes one competitor doing it better to start stealing people away. If these features are missing, I’d recommend adding them. If they are just hard to find, I’d recommend either re-thinking the layout or adding an overlay tutorial that walks through functionality for users. Something that launches initially for brand new users and can be launched at will for people needing a refresher.
Great idea, horrific experience
by Tomatitto291 on 2018/05/16 01:41
I absolutely love live streams, and twitch in general. I’ve been on the twitch bandwagon for longer than most, but can’t help to notice these extremely common, frustrating bugs. I will play live streams or VODs, and the audio will just go out. I used to be able to close out stream, change video quality, or close out app to fix it, but that is no longer the case. The only fix I have been able to find as of late is to completely uninstall and reinstall the app. I am now doing this 10+ times per day, and that’s unacceptable. If this issue isn’t solved by the end of this week, I’m just going to go watch someone else re upload one of your creator’s livestreams. Which mean that’s neither you, or the streamer you pretend to help will be making any money off of me, and I will cancel my multiple subscriptions.
I am an avid twitch user but this app is very frustrating
by Fru1tilicious on 2019/04/18 02:59
I on average watch Twitch streamers for 2-3 hours a day and it is my main form of entertainment. So it saddens me that the iOS app is riddled with so many issues. First off there is an insane amount of delay (15-30sec) which makes it very difficult to be involved in chat. While on my other devices the delay is essentially unnoticeable or very minimal (5-10sec) when I’m on mobile chat becomes separate and I no longer get the full twitch experience where I can be immersed in a community of other viewers. Having the app play in the background is riddled with issues and is extremely finicky. I can barely get it to play at times when I’d just like to listen in the background. Then when I go back to the app it pauses for a while consistently and then suddenly starts after waiting. Many times when I click on a stream it will be frozen without the option to press the play button. The only way to fix this is to reload the stream and sometimes it requires completely relaunching the app. I love twitch and the app isn’t unusable by any means but it could really use improvements. What is really disappointing is that the iOS app has been around for so long yet we still deal with these bugs. Considering a large number of viewers are on mobile it is time some work was put in to polish the app and improve the experience of mobile users.
Not too shabby! Updated
by Obsidiangel1982 on 2020/08/16 11:38
I like the app and they've made some good improvements. The only improvement i can think of would be to allow for viewing when someone first starts streaming or has lower viewership...allowing mobile users to view would help increase the viewership. Edit added 8/2/14: there is an annoying bug that makes the streams freeze for a bit. It's not the internet because i've tested it multiple places. Annoying, but other than these two things the app is fantastic. UPDATE: Still a very good app. However, I’ve noticed that there are significantly more ads these days. An uninstallable number of ads. I’m sure if I pay/subscribe or use an adblocker I won’t have to worry about it, but it shouldn’t need to be that way. 6 ads is really way too many. That’s unreasonable. I came to the internet to get away from ads. Find a different way guys. Innovate!
Idk if it’s my fault or not
by Energy force on 2018/10/08 01:23
So I think the app is great but it’s not letting me watch my favorite streamer it lets me watch everyone else but it’s only this person and it doesn’t matter if I have full WiFi or if I’m using data it won’t let me watch my streamer but others it’s completely fine I honestly don’t know it might be that my phone is old and is being annoying or if it’s the app but here’s the thing up until a they finally came back to America from a trip I was completely fine I could watch them from my cousin’s house where I don’t have WiFi and I’d be completely fine and they didn’t like block me or something because I made another account and it still doesn’t let me watch them so whether it’s my fault or not I give the app 5 stars
Please do something about “Continue Watching”
by robert91303 on 2018/12/26 06:32
Please do something about the “Continue Watching” section of the “Following” home page in the app. I rarely ever want to watch anyone’s past streams and having a section like this is annoying. For example, because I watched some fool play for a few minutes last week, I’m now forced to see that stream at nearly the top of my feed and there’s no way to get rid of it. Or the section will be cluttered with a favorite streamer’s last stream that I closed out of pretty near the end of the stream, but for some reason the app thinks I might want to keep watching, so now I keep mistaking it as some new live stream when I launch the app. Basically, this “Continue Watching” section is misguided use of space in an application that’s all about live streaming. Hopefully, I’m not the only one raising this issue and something can be done about allowing the user to opt-out of having this section show up in the app.
Really bad experience
by EriiPlays1 on 2020/01/16 06:58
I was a partner, some guys put bots on my channel, exactly 15k bots that followed my channel, I report them, and I reported the toxic streamers that did it, but the staff is corrupted what they did was send my report to those channels, and type the report on their chat. I reported the staff and the channels again by the partner email and it was the same all corrupted the staff only listen to their friends and others streamers... really sad they just destroyed my career and everything and twitch did nothing they didn’t fired them they still working there but I can do nothing. 👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼 i removed all the accounts with the ignored feature but it doesn’t matter the staff is corrupted whenever I send an email the same staff or her/his friends just delete the email and just like that. I’m no rich but if I had money sure I’ll be suiting Twitch and the corrupted staff that violated my rights and the twitch ToS. I guess it is what it is I just have to start over on another platform after all my years of work. I hope the Spanish staff from Mexico get fired.
Customer Support
by Mitchell Gabriel on 2019/05/05 02:12
I recently had to delete my account because it was hacked repeatedly and the issue wasn't addressed quickly enough for any of my information to feel safe (i followed all preventative measures and my account was still accessed even without my two-step verification). Unfortunately, upon going to create a new account, i discovered i was trapped in my old account on the app, unable to do or watch anything, but also unable to sign out. I deleted and redownloaded the app several times to no avail. I'd love to continue using the app with a new account but it seems that i have to have an account to speak with customer support. This is both a cautionary review and last ditch effort to reach out and hopefully receive some assistance with this issue. The app is completely unusable to me at the moment which is a huge disappointment as i'm missing out on a lot of my favorite content creator's streams.
Great App, Great Problems...
by Symbawlic on 2021/02/07 21:54
I’m on Twitch, on a phone. Twitch is great, there is nothing wrong with their app, only that something NEEDS to be added. For some stupid reason, you can’t turn on “Past Broadcasting” or something around that name, which basically means that you have the ability to make it available for your viewers to watch past live streams that they weren’t able to see live. Apparently this is only available on the Twitch website, so I had to turn on “Past Broadcasting bla bla bla” on the website. The only thing is, is that IT DIDN’T WORK. I turned it on, went to Twitch, and my live stream still wasn’t there. Ironically, the website has more features than the app does, but on a phone, both the app and website are garbage. Nonetheless, I will continue to stream on Twitch because I’ve seen what it can do on an iPad instead of a phone, and I love the app, just really mad about not being able to do slot of things.
This app runs terrible
by Vnkhjjhkkjhhbjkkhbj on 2020/12/19 08:09
This app won’t load videos if I’m using 480p or higher I don’t know why I saw it was at 360 for default don’t know why thought this was 2020 so I put it to 1080 wouldn’t load I was like ok I guess 720p is fine then doesn’t work so I’m like Jesus Christ 480p what is this 1995 but oh well better the 360 doesn’t work I exit the app every time in between changing the graphics just in case also so after 480 doesn’t work I exit it again cause I’m like oh well get back on it loads at 180p by itself I didn’t change it to 180p it’s not my phone I have a pretty new undamaged iphone 10 with at&t I tested my speed I’m at 150mb for upload more then fast enough for it to load it’s 2am and I live about a mile from a cell tower with full bars it’s not me this app runs so bad so if you like watching streamers on terrible quality this is the app for you Well I wrote that a while ago quit watching streams for a while now I’m back it’s on 720p and the streams won’t load this App is a joke
Delay
by GetThisOffTheInternet on 2020/06/10 02:42
I like the app it’s very similar to the pc version. But a big problem I have is that there is so much of a delay. I was watching this Nhl streamer named Tougie24 and he was doing a draft. He wanted the viewers to pick. In the nhl game there is a 3 minuet time limit and I did not get to make my pick (the time ran out) because of the delay I would tell him to do something then it would take at least 30 seconds for me to see or for it to appear and in his chat. Another example Is when watching a stream and something cool happens it will be spoiled or revealed before you see it ruining the moment. Wether the rest of the chat is emoting or talking about it. I will always be the last person to see. This also makes having a conversation with the streamer difficult because he is waiting for 30 second to a minute to see a response because you see what he said so much later than it was actually said
The issue isn’t the app it’s Twitch’s new direction
by Smithy... on 2021/01/27 06:41
With the browser version of Twitch we can use extensions to remove things we hate due to the lack of a consistent blacklist on content we will Never Ever Watch. (Don’t drop twitch yet. Watch on chrome with a few extensions) Twitch, if I told you real talk and music channels are on my Top 3 hated list then please don’t showcase them even if you got paid to. I am not your market. You are wasting that ad-buy. Put in a real category based Blacklist so you can affiliate and ad-buy like a real deal company and do targeted marketing. All that is happening now is enraging your loyal consumer base to uninstall. Please use some of that recent investment money to get a real marketing team and learn to allow customers to curate their experience on mobile and desktop. Just because you have a paid for music festival does not mean every single Twitch user should see that first when they sign on. It’s a waste of eyeball time, creates user animosity, and has people turning Twitch off. Look at Steam that put in 10 category tags you don’t want to see in your home page for games being sold. Mimic that but do not limit it to ten IMHO. Do not make it exclusive to lower bar content but include the featured section. Cow towing to additional advertising and force feeding sponsored content is going to have creators looking for the next twitch alternative.
Still a great streaming service, but the app/login is annoying
by Raeusredeemed on 2020/08/09 18:22
I love Twitch and I’ve been using it for years, but recently have stopped using it entirely because the app doesn’t want to play nice. The required login is really annoying, especially because the chats are always toxic anyway and I really don’t care to participate. I honestly just want to watch the streams. Since my account was stolen by people overseas twice, the password requirements have become completely obnoxious and I feel like I need a password manager to keep one that complex straight. However, I don’t have the ability to even do that. When I try to reset my password on my phone, the link in the email immediately redirects to the app sign in and not to the password reset screen (there’s also no option to just continue in Safari). Thus I’m stuck in an infinite loop of having the “wrong“ credentials unless I actually use a computer to right it.
Quality freezes
by JuyJuyc on 2021/03/06 21:47
The quality usually be at the highest like 1080 but since recently there’s been problems where it just go to 360 or 166 and play good but at 1080 it skip every 10 seconds of the live I’m watching or it pauses and doesn’t play I tried goin lower to 480 but the same problem happens every time, one time I put it on my tv and it worked fine on 1080 then it started freezing so I put it down to 360 and the video was going back to normal just low quality it was moving at good speed please fix this I even deleted the app plenty times and downloaded it back to see was my phone the problem tried on different devices the same error kept occurring to I put it on a low quality everything else works perfectly just bad quality to where it have to go perfect good quality makes it freeze and skip over videos.
Good... mostly
by M. Rata on 2019/10/05 21:58
I do have one major gripe with Twitch for iOS. I typically watch Twitch on my TV using a game console, but I open the same stream on my iPhone because it's easier to type in chat with the phone's touch keyboard. Which works well as long as Twitch is running on the iPhone... except it doesn't. Whenever you pause your stream and then switch away from the app and then do something else on the phone, it's very likely that when you switch back to Twitch, the app will restart completely. This is really annoying because not only do you have to search for or dig for the stream again but often the app then makes you watch the 15-30 second pre-stream ad again. I don't know whether this is Twitch's fault or Apple's: I've observed it for at least a year while keeping up with the latest iOS software. Either way, please fix it!
Great App
by AloneMahaone2334 on 2021/04/12 16:02
I know twitch has been around for a while but I didn’t feel like I needed another broadcasting app. However, since 2020 I’ve been on twitch a lot since there is so much time now lol. I gotta say, it is a great way to connect with your favorite content creator. I’ve been noticed by the smallest content creator to the big ones who either have a huge following on twitch or are famous from another platform. My only issue is this app lags. Say I start watching a stream on my iPhone and then I switch to my laptop, the steam will be delayed. Other than that, it is a good app to make some friends for discord. I’m an introvert so I don’t really talk in chat but I’ve seen many people become friends in chats. Just to note: I think memberships and bits are pretty expensive and they run out super quick like I think after a month but that’s just my opinion lol. Okay.
Lack of Customizable Access
by WorfySmarf on 2018/01/05 18:12
The Twitch website gives you a lot of access towards your customization and profile editing. You can change your chat color, change your name and or capitalization, change your profile pic, etc. This app, however, doesn’t give you access to most of the offers the website has. It would be nice to be able to do certain things on the app instead of always having to rely on the website such as customizing your profile and being able to subscribe to channels by viewing them instead of having to use chat commands. Sometimes I want to support a streamer but I can’t because they do not have a set chat command. Overall, I’d appreciate it if the app would have more accessibility just like the website instead of it feeling like it’s taking away your access and ability.
Many missing features and bugs
by Geowa on 2020/08/20 01:41
Using this app for years now and there’s been very little improvement over those years. The app allows you to do basic functions such as watch a stream, or tip bits. However if you want to do other things such as tip and subscribe you won’t be able to do that in the app. You will have to go to a PC or request desktop mode from the safari browser. When you request desktop mode it tends to cause problems for your fighting with the app opening and then trying to get the desktop mode painful process. Missing subscribe function is the biggest issue I’d say. Could this be true to be missing for so many years it’s just incredible to me. It’s a basic function on twitch it’s been around for a long time and that’s how you can show support for your favorite stream, same with tipping that should be in there too for some reason it’s not.
Great app but bugs need to be fixed
by Bakenpiglit on 2021/04/09 04:09
I really love the twitch app for when I watch streams on the go but it does have a few bugs that are annoying. For one, only when I use the iPad app, anytime I type in chat the audio cuts out completely and I have to restart the app to get audio back in the stream. Another thing that happens is similar but when I type in chat sometimes the audio doesn't cut out completely but it cuts for a few seconds then comes back but its 3-10 seconds delayed from the video. As you can imagine its pretty annoying to not be able to use chat without having to restart the app and miss what the streamer is saying. Another bug is on the iPhone app. Sometimes when I click a notification for a stream and go into the app, the following page is frozen and I cant tap anything.
Broken
by Pokemonfan131313 on 2020/10/24 03:50
I don’t know how this app has such high reviews. I’m just trying to use the app to watch past streams of some people I enjoy. Every time I pause the video and turn off my phone screen or switch to a different app it starts the video from the beginning, assuming it even brings up the video at all when I open the app again. When dealing with 3+ hour content, remembering your place is vital. I also can’t find a way to quit a video I started, just make it small and click on something else. (If there is a method, I haven’t found it with all my prodding and swiping). When I pause the video full screen, an overlay pops up that hides half the screen and makes it really easy to misclick something (For the 20th time, no I’m not trying to unfollow the person I’m watching, thanks), and also makes it hard to see the thing that I paused to look at. It’s ok (and actually better) to have some information and options outside of full screen mode.
Freakin amazing but...
by swissed_up on 2020/09/09 09:57
This is by far the best streaming service on the face of the earth. But there are some things that the pc version has that the mobile version doesnt. No 1. The ability to change your channel name. So i noticed after about a day prior to downloading this that you are unable to change your channel name. Now that isnt a problem for me but it may be for other people, as other users may not be able to access a pc or laptop. No 2. The ability to customize about me pages and channel banners: it’s basically the same reason. So twitch i really hope you see this and possibly make some changes but aside from that, twitch i a great streaming service and it will be for many years to come.

I was on heroin really bad. What helped me when I finally was able to get the guts to go through withdrawals, I watched Twitch. Twitch was there for me to talk to chat. Twitch was there for me to see positive content. Twitch has a much bigger impact in my drug recovery then I could ever get someone to understand. I love Twitch and I am so thankful it’s here, for free, for me to enjoy. I think it could have positive effect on people trying to get off drugs. I just don’t have a way to stream or I would make an account simply for just chatting. I would have my account be all about recovery off drugs. There is such a big need for someone to live stream to those affected by the drug epidemic. Thank you. Sincerely, Zachary Tumulty
Love the app, but there are a few bugs
by Jules Hes. on 2020/09/16 15:38
I’ve actually been really enjoying using twitch so far, but because I’m generally short on time I tend to not be able to watch entire streams. Good news is twitch records past broadcasts, but I’ve noticed that while watching past broadcasts there are some pretty frustrating bugs. For example, sometimes when watching a past broadcast and an ad pops up, after the ad break the broadcast will send you back to the beginning and you have to scrub through the video to find your place again, which can be annoying especially when watching longer streams. Also, the scrubbing is a bit buggy to, sometimes the bar acts like you pressed your finger in a different place. I really do enjoy using twitch, so I hope this bugs can be fixed.
Devs that listen to feedback
by Shobot11 on 2018/09/02 17:55
A couple months ago, the twitch app had a major redesign and overhaul. As is so often the case, the Internet reacted violently to change, but in this specific case I would say it was warranted. New Apple is clunky and removed Features from the twitch app that we knew and Loved. Even the smallest, most accidental swipe left and right would change the channel, and it was infuriating. Over the next couple months however, the Twitch dev team started listening to Feedback, and implementing changes that the masses were crying for. And I can finally say with confidence that this is the best way to watch Internet video of any sort. Thank you Devs for listening to Feedback implementing changes, it is greatly appreciated
I don’t have to find be a sub to find good gameplay.
by Hghshgrjrifsssssssssdsdd on 2020/03/21 14:51
I just stay for the comments. But I’d like to comment in on the good plays. Fuel the excitement and push for more people to test their limits. Browse filters. Alittle more console support as far as the Kinect and overlays, widgets control panel. Nothing’s perfect, just surprised a lot of what I expected hhasnt happened yet. This generations alittle behind, still hating and hurting. Won’t make your pain stop. If you want that, you have to get over yourself. We’re all humans. The Human race. Not racial, regional. If each person had one million, no one would struggle. Below one million, work, or invest correctly. Oh wait that’s right. the wrong three power system. Last one had it right but still fought amongst each other. Pitty. Hopefully we can prepare before the next round.
it’s not the greatest but it’s great for streamers
by zachary flora on 2021/01/15 02:36
1 with channel points if you have the stream on a console you don’t not gain channel points which i found absolutely dumb because i’ve been watching a stream for around 4-5 hours and don’t get channel points which is supposed to be something that is rewarded. the app is not very user friendly for new streamers i don’t not feel you have to normally look stuff up or get help from other streamers on the topic. I also feel that some of the ban options are unnecessary and useless because if two friends are having friendly banter with each other which is extremely common they could get banned because they a said something that is innocent but certain people that the word wasn’t directed towards find it offensive so like get banned for it. i love the app but some things are unnecessary
Great platform/app But Lack of Bug Fixes
by Mal Carrillo on 2020/09/09 19:17
I love twitch. A lot of a my favorite content creators are on here. But here’s the thing: Twitch is not properly working. Ever since they have allowed Live copyright claims, I cannot watch past streams that are have copyrighted music in them through certain devices. For example, twitch is not a featured app Samsung Smart TVs so when I AirPlay a past stream from my iPhone and it gives me the “Some portions of this stream have been muted due to copyright” warning. The advertisement will play but the stream won’t. I have reported the issue various times. No fix. I know twitch doesn’t have does best staff but, they could at least look into things like this for the love of people who can’t always catch a stream. 3 stars; cool and all but it little things like this that ruin it for working people, students, etc.
Terrible Ui, and updates make the app worse
by Denali212 on 2019/10/18 16:03
navigating through the different broadcasts will give you a migraine, random channels you arent interested in with no viewers will be dropped in the top of your feed for no reason constantly. you cannot delete messages, and notifications will remain for years after youve “hidden” the messages theyre attatched to. on top of this the newer updates have fixed nothing but added the most annoying feature imagineable: autoplay on whatever is in the center of the screen, (meaning when you browse the app while watching a stream, there will ALWAYS be a second stream randomly autoplaying and overlapping your audio.) the app is lazily put together and the new features they add actively make the experience worse, with no settings menu to turn these annoying things off. whoever is in charge of design should seriously consider stepping down and letting someone who has the first idea of what theyre doing step in.
Great but I guess screw the IOS Users
by Odstfan6 on 2018/11/21 05:36
-Dear Twitch devs I have not been able to have the audio in my game clips for a long time. I then come up with the bright idea of using twitch and screen recording on a separate device, which worked. I got really excited. But thats where the problems started. I did two separate 1 hr 17 min streams and each were screen recorded off of my IPad Air. The first stream only recorded 1 minute of audio and the second one only recorded 3 minutes of. Please, please fix this. I love this app and this seems to be my only work around for getting the in-game audio since I dont have a proper capture card or PC. I want to stream things like this in the future so I wont need to spend so much money on a computer and a capture card. - Sincerely, ALaggyShisno
Great, just a few suggestions.
by Isssaad28 on 2020/09/08 22:37
Twitch is cool. Found out about it a few months ago and get to connect and watch people that I love. I just have a few suggestions. Dates and times for each stream and whisper. I don’t like going back to my favorite streamer and it saying “a month ago” or “two months ago” because then I don’t know what stream it is. The same for whispers. It doesn’t give you a date or time the message was sent so if someone asks when you sent the whisper it seems unprofessional to not know because it doesn’t tell you. The app I’ve noticed glitches a bit and when you go to watch previous streams it takes forever. Overall twitch is great and I like it a lot, I just think these suggestions would improve the layout and help people.
Solid app, poor management
by myboibois on 2021/02/24 06:19
While the app provides a satisfactory user experience, the opposite is to be said about its management. The twitch staff and management seems to play favorites in the treatment of its communities and broadcasters, being either extremely strict or extremely lenient of who gets banned and for how long. For creators, the staff is often vague or unclear about reasons for a ban if one has occurred and appeals often fall on deaf ears after an already lengthy period of time waiting for a reply. The content restrictions too of the DMCA has severely restricted the possible quality of content, and many times bans for breaking DMCA guidelines are extremely harsh. There is more to say but these are prominent points of failure. If these were addressed, I believe that the app and the platform have a huge opportunity to shine and achieve their full potential to allow for a more fun and more entertaining user and broadcaster experience.
Great service, shame about the recent added Nudity
by Winderoth on 2020/12/14 23:56
I love Twitch. I’ve used it for years and have been a member of twitch prime for a significant amount of time. Twitch has been a great way to preview games before I consider purchasing them as well as staying involved in the video game community. This all changed for me when Twitch started allowing the steaming of games that include full frontal nudity (Cyberpunk 2077 to be specific). You may have your own opinions about censorship, but for me this crosses a line where I can no longer endorse this app for users that are kid’s or have kids. The app did a great job screen this until now. To specify address Cyberpunk 2077, I think it’s a great game, it has a “streaming mode” that is suppose to screen out nudity to make it streaming appropriate, but it doesn’t work. I hope Twitch is able to decide to stick to they’re previous model of censorship instead of turning a blind eye when a popular game comes on the market in the future.
