Chat Function
by qml2001 on 2020/06/01 15:51
The chat function on mobile is frustrating bc it blanks out the chat every time you exit the app—or more accurately, sometimes but not other times. Would be really nice if this was fixed!

This App Is One Of The Greatest When It Comes To The Streaming Community’s. I think it the best

It is a very good interaction for streamers and fans to come together and have fun I love watching streamers and being able to interact with random people and making new friends.

Unable to use app
by hitemwiththewoah on 2020/05/31 17:54
Every time I open the app I’m able to search up a streamers profile and see it but as soon as I click on a stream, the app force closes. Every single time. No error or anything just a force close anytime I try to click on a stream. Please fix this because Twitch mobile is the only way I’m able to subscribe to channels since it is not a thing on the Twitch app for console.

Ads are SO LOUD
by I like Trains on 2020/05/31 11:40
The ads are startlingly louder than any stream or vod I’ve watched for years now. I used to watch vods as a sleep aid but the amount of times now the ads have shocked me awake is annoying. I thought they would’ve fixed this by now but I guess not. Just please make them quieter. I already keep my volume very low and they’re STILL SO LOUD.

New bugs. Latest iPad os
by MiokeyDG on 2020/05/30 20:40
Games that are minimized to small corner view while looking at another app either pause, or disappear. Also if switch apps and come back to Twitch, game will be black screen and say channel offline. Everything worked back before Apple came out with iPad os, so maybe a few months ago. 05/29/2020 Bug in IPad OS in which Twitch notification on linked IPhone will cause stream on IPad to close and app has to be reopened to function. This might be only when stream is in windowed mode on iPad, I.e. small screen nested on top of other active page.

Sub tokens
by getmemed0_o on 2020/05/30 19:20
Everything is fine is just sub tokens they are so expensive like 50 just for 200 dollar if you want to buy one it should aleast be 2 dollars or one
by DSBOfficial on 2020/05/30 18:44
Discoverability on the platform is still awful, and you’re promoting Poki on the App Store which is terrible. Money grubbing streamer that will protect her pay pigs at all costs. Overall would not recommend to a friend.
A bug
by theresnousernamesfree on 2020/05/30 16:56
So when I go on twitch I try to click a stream or any clips videos anything it kicks me out the app I restarted it delete the app download it back search up YouTube videos even restarted my own iPhone and it won’t work
Can’t even creat an account.
by GeneraChief_ on 2020/05/30 08:43
I downloaded the app and it doesn’t even let me create an account. Says that the email is wrong, like what? Or it says I’m creating it too fast. Doesn’t even make sense.
Customer service is a joke
by Rymgcee on 2020/05/30 06:16
I played counsel for a long time and streamed of it or watch other gamers from my PS4. Finally almost done building a PC, better see how twitch works on the computer. Type in my info, says it sent a code to my email. Never came. So contacted support, gave them my info. Said they couldn’t help me. I can literally stream still from my PS4. Even sent pictures that it’s me. They don’t care about you unless you are a big streamer. It’s not worth having a profile of you are casual. Even if you want to get bigger, these aren’t the people you want to do it with.

Very bad
Can no longer access old accounts via Mobile
by Oelonyx on 2020/05/29 19:06
Attempting to get back into twitch has been a rough one, less than 15 minutes in. Why? My password managed to keep this “Apple Keychain” thing clogged like a bad toilet, nullifying any attempt on getting it out of the way or any effective taps on the screen (using a 3rd party ‘dev kit’, there were no known taps that even registered as the recovery code screen store me back in my face with Apple Keychain wondering if we were doing something important) Although this sounds like a definite software issue, I remembered that there was a server-side site to log into accounts. After some moments, I knew my hopes were dashed since it’s been integrated into the app for streamlined access to a viewing experience. As this isn’t really that much of an app problem, I would love to see the server-side site come back to avoid anymore hiccups (or plain ole’ walls in the way) further on.
by Illinois dad on 2020/05/29 18:44
It just won’t let me create an account, I send in the right confirmation code, and it usually says it doesn’t work. I cycle thru a few more until one actually works. Ur then when everything seems good, it says I’m making accounts too fast. So it blocks me from making an account for awhile. I just want to watch some streamers. Not go thru this.
by 999999999099999 on 2020/05/29 18:29
When watching vods, pausing, and locking the device and then going to hit play again later the video will restart from the beginning. This problem has been going on for months and there has been no fix it basically makes casting a VOD to a chrome cast or similar device unwatchable
Such a shame
by Mr_Fixxit on 2020/05/29 18:01
This used to be a reliable platform for gamers. Now it’s lowered itself to lower life forms known as the boob streamer. It’s filled it’s IRL with bikini clad th*ts and body painting bimbos. Your suggested feed is no longer filled with the avid gamer but that of the laziest form of human beings the infamous cam girl who will display her assets for a free handout. Twitch you have serious issue and have let all of the gamers down. Shame on you.

Problem with ads
by Xenoplop on 2020/05/29 03:28
I get this ad that is 15 seconds right? Each time it shows up and fails to play, the app is telling me that this streamer has gone offline when they aren’t offline. Even when I go on the browser version of Twitch it shows me the same ad that fails to play.

Channel points don’t accumulate on Apple TV or if mobile device is in chat only mode, and I’ve been getting the “error loading followed channels, try again” error constantly on a regular basis for a month plus now. The app used to be solid but despite all the updates it keeps getting worse.

When I want to purchase sub tokens I have to delete and reinstall the app every time. If I buy one token, and I want to buy another I have to reinstall otherwise it will say, purchase failed.

Mobile Delay
by LowTimez on 2020/05/28 06:44
I love twitch and watch a stream at least once everyday. The only issue i have on mobile is that the delay is so long compared to being on the computer. This makes it to where i see what’s happening 10 seconds after everyone and it would be nice to have the lower delay.
by vario2k on 2020/05/28 05:01

This app crashes way too often
by Lazyboy9297 on 2020/05/28 04:31
I just recently downloaded this app but I suppose there is a glitch which causes a crash every time I click on a livestream. I can browse offline channels, but I can’t watch any live streams whatsoever. There is no option in app to contact anyone about this issue either. Waste of time.
Viewers can’t watch my stream on iOS devices
by Kloud9Gaming on 2020/05/28 03:45
I’m seriously wanting to switch to mixer. All of the sudden I can’t load my streams on an iOS device (app or browser) nor can anyone else with an iPhone. I’ve had multiple friends with iPhones try and even had users in my twitch chat say they can’t watch my stream. It says I’m live...once I click after about 2 seconds it flashes and says I’m offline when I’m not. Stream has been tested and works flawlessly on PC and android devices, it is only IOS that is having the issue. I can’t even watch my recorded streams from the app unless I drop the quality to 360P. It’s hard for me to justify streaming right now when the bulk of my viewers watch from an iPhone where it says I’m offline. I’ve emailed and tweeted twitch support with no success.
Severe problems

I don’t like the way it doesn’t allow 12 year old to make an account and it probably has a good reason why they don’t allow it but I wanted to make an account and it wouldn’t let me because I’m under 13.

Please add channel analytics etc.
by NightOwl4Lyfe on 2020/05/27 13:15
I give 4 stars because of the occasional bug that’s been going on for YEARS. And also because they need to start adding more things from the website to the app like channel analytics and followers etc.

by Coolcoldkid on 2020/05/27 03:56
Absolutely outstanding! I’ll be the first to admit that the twitch app wasn’t the greatest at first, but it’s definitely improved over time. The new emote menu, ability to subscribe and purchase bits, and more, have made this app truly into something Twitch should be proud of. The only issue I run into is that sometimes the plug-ins have trouble loading sometimes, regardless of my internet connection.

by darkxilluminati86 on 2020/05/26 23:08
The chat moves faster than the stream. You will see chat reacting to something before you see it on stream. Very annoying and ruins immersion. The Android version has no delay at all.
Follower list resets top top when scrolling.
by fingersteam on 2020/04/24 06:37
ISSUE When scrolling down through the follower list, the list will pop back up to the top. If I scroll down slowly or quickly, if I scroll down some and then scroll up some, it makes no difference, most of the time a bug will cause the list to jump to the top streamer with the highest viewer count. The issue has been present for a few years. HOW IT SHOULD BE I would like to be able to scroll through my follower list, idle and check out stream titles and then continue to scroll until I find a stream to watch. I would like to watch a stream that has a viewer count 3/4 down my live follower list and when I am done watching, and want to switch to a different streamer, not have to navigate from the top of the list again. The list should be bookmarked at the viewer count the stream I am currently watching and not reset to a stream at the top of the list with a viewer count in the thousands. ... I think you get the point. I hope I explained what is happening and hopefully it makes sense to not require having to scroll down a long list (I follow hundreds of streamers) to find the streams with lower viewer counts) every time I want to go back to the follower list and find a different streamer. Also, can you bring back swipe left/right to switch between streamers? Bring back the feature to be able to be watching one streamer and then swipe left or right to switch to the next corresponding stream.
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.
It’s not a bad app but....
by McCaseyFresh on 2020/02/04 14:49
It’s not a bad app but it would be nice to be able to subscribe and donate to people straight from the app. Besides all that the Twitch app seems to have been working just fine for me for quite some time now. I really enjoy being able to watch my friends and favorite streamers while on the go. It’s also a great time passer when sitting at my psychiatrists office and having a 3-4 hour wait just to see my doctor for 5 to 10 minutes. I don’t know anything about the live streaming part because I just use the mobile app to watch and as far as that it seems to work pretty good. It would be PERFECT if they’d implement the “subscribe” and “donate” buttons somewhere in the app though. Maybe put it on the screen next to the “follow/heart” button on the actual stream video. Ive looked everywhere on the app and hadn’t been able to find the sub or donate anywhere on the app and will feel pretty stupid if it’s been there the whole time but none of my friends or any of the viewers on other streams using the app have been able to find it either. Please update this app and add those 2 things and people would probably use the app a lot more!
Honest critic
by Mortal_Man on 2019/04/17 00:34
While the app wasn’t the best for mobile streaming, or watching older videos (had plenty of times where the video would reset entirely after watching an ad, or just randomly flicker and then reset back to the start of the video), it did work well enough, though I still don’t understand why the method of getting bits by watching ads was removed from mobile, despite already giving barely any bits by comparison to what you would get for watching an ad on your computer. The recent change of adding “recommended channels” to the home screen is buggy for me and doesn’t actually load correctly (being stuck with the initial error message as well as the “recommended channels”), but reloading the page works as a workaround for now. I personally find most of the recommendations, despite being a push to make me watch more content... distasteful, as most of them are people I followed and didn’t want to see again as the community was either to exclusive, or I didn’t really connect with the streamer. So honestly, it shouldn’t go on the home page where I have my listing of what I started watching, and the streamers I do want to watch and am following. (More to follow
A major suggestion

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.

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.
Many missing features and bugs
by Geowa on 2018/11/16 13:35
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. Immobile multitask with us at the concert want to minimize itself and not going to wind up mode don’t have to force a question time 20 many bugs should’ve never been fixed. Other than that the most annoying bug is the crashing of the app.
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.
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.
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
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.
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 😉😏
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
Not bad app but need a social media options for about page on the application
by oddur93 on 2020/05/08 04:25
That will be very good if I can change the user name directly from the application please set that option for further updates Hi guys that will be very good if that will be a option to add a Social Media links directly from the application because on a website is ver frustrating or I will say difficult please put these helpful options in the application for further assistance with Twitch broadcasters some of them are blind and some of them have a low vision so please put these helpful options for these people but not a bad app and also please put a donate button on next option after follow the streamer that will be very helpful to but I love this application and I will use it a lot thanks guys
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
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.
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
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.
Saves more lives then you know.

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
by Leososa123 on 2018/07/22 08:46
The app is overall great, but they need to add the option to DELETE messages in the chat room. Instead of always timing people out or just straight banning. I mod for a channel and sometimes I want to delete their message as a warning, but I only have the option to time them out or ban them, and sometimes that isn’t necessary. So please, people at twitch take this into consideration as some people do moderate channels from the their phone sometimes. I happen to be on twitch exclusively through mobile at the moment and maybe their are other people to might agree? Other than that I have no real complaints. The interface is nice. But I would really love to see that small feature included when you press on someone’s name. Thank you.
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
Loud ads and audio doesn’t play in background
by The Only Elroi on 2018/10/16 12:39
This app has been fantastic. I’ve loved using it as the interface is clean and runs well. Streams are smooth and chat runs without hiccups. However, the end of Twitch Prime being ad-free has changed the experience. The advertisements are way too loud, which means Twitch is no longer good for ASMR viewers and people who like to use this while falling asleep. Another major issue is that when closing the app to allow the stream audio to play in the background, the stream now either stops or gets choppy, rendering the function unusable right now. This issue needs to be fixed. Between the loud advertisements and background audio issues, I haven’t used Twitch app in a while. That’s a shame, because this is an amazing platform and the app has been solid.
Terrible for streamer
by Rawrzness on 2018/08/30 16:36
There are false icons that lead you to believe you can view analytics, the “graph” icon that pops up on the top right for “manage stream” only allows you to change the title and category of your games... that’s all. This app seems perfect for community. And getting to watch streamers, but a nightmare if you’re trying to do any upkeep or view statistics while you’re away from a pc. I can’t even click on the followers displayed in order to see who’s followed. If it’s going to be this over simplified mess make a separate app for people who stream or do a better job of integrating things from the desktop version into the app. I can’t even go on the site on mobile and hit “view desktop mode” because it will instantly open my app. If I have to go to desktop mode with the app uninstalled anyway to view the things I need why do I even have the app? 🤔
No filter for most viewed anything
by McFlyMan007 on 2018/11/10 17:44
Imagine you’re browsing twitch’s front page for the game you want, it’ll be there, but there won’t be any chance those games will be in order of how popular they are. Say you find your favorite game and you want to see who the top streamers are, you’ll have to scroll and scroll past the lowest in popularity streams to find the top three you were looking for. However, with all that being said, there’s the option to filter which type of media you’re looking for: Live-streams, clips, and videos. Why? Hold that question for this next one. Not only can you filter media, you can filter by which stream labels the streamers have attached to their stream! Looking for a non-English speaker in a mostly English web? You’d better hope they labeled their stream with that language to have any chance of finding them.
Trash and rushed

My main concern is that when I click I. The options for my own vide all I can do is report or block myself. I made a stream that I tried to delete because it never let me include my phone screen. When I went to look for an option to delete the video the only two options given to me were to report or block myself. Any intelligent programmer or even user for that matter can understand the blunder of this interface. Unless they were trying to sabotage their own app, I’m guessing that they only assumed mobile users would be trying to access content rather than create it. As mobile gaming will see new highs you would think a gaming streaming service would dedicate resources to allow content to be shared from mobile devices. New I’m betting they we’ll be replaced. Anyone know of any streaming app that allows you to stream your mobile game from your mobile phone?
Buggy, with no updates.
by Jakely2dizzle on 2018/01/19 01:28
TLDR Ads bad. But not cause ads, because bad numbers. Twitch continues to add new, convenient features without fixing their buggy video system. While I don’t mind getting hours of content for one measly ad (despite them being horrible pandering, playing over and over,) having to watch an ad on a video I was already watching just because I swiped a little too hard feels harsh. Losing my progress on my video just because one ad played is infuriating, especially when it happens over and over, and is even more frustrating for users with short term memory loss. Two (2) other things that cause this bug (along with others:) Closing Twitch, auto going into Audio Mode, reopening twitch and losing the play/pause button, meaning you have to close and come back, with a 1/3 chance of actually getting your progress back. Changing quality when the video won’t get past the frozen screen it shows you. (By the way, Auto starts in the highest quality and is pointless if you’re looking for what will work with shoddy internet. Because it doesn’t ever start!) Haven’t ever used your popular stream tabs because I only watch content I actually want to see. Probably bugs there too. Sometimes I wish Hitbox took off.

I found out about the app threw a Facebook live stream...(A FACEBOOK LIVE STREAM THAT WORKED)....after joining the app I tried watching the live stream but not only would the live stream not work but NOT ONE... NOT ONE video or live stream on the app would work!!! The only time anything worked is when I left the app & the audio played. This was my first time hearing about twitch, my first time trying to use twitch & well... yeah I now get why it’s the first time! I’d love to think it’s just a malfunction but after searching online & reading other reviews on here I can now tell it’s not just a random malfunction & on that note the account I made will get deleted given the app & website are up so you can watch videos & live streams yet none will load or work so that you can watch them. . . BTW clicking on a star is bothering me & if I could I’d be giving the app a negative three stars a long with this review...
Straight Garbage
by lurkmk2 on 2020/02/06 12:24
It literally has one purpose and it is terrible at it. Will play an AD in glorious 1080p instantly, then will wait up to multiple minutes on some occasions to actually load your stream. Not to mention that every time I start the app and want to browse the csgo section (the only reason I ever go on this awful platform) I now how have to manually change the filter to sort by viewership numbers to find the csgo hub. I have to do this because the default is for it to show you “your” recommended games. Which is entirely false because the only thing I ever use this garbage for is watching pro cs matches AND FOR SOME REASON CSGO DOESNT MAKE IT INTO MY RECOMMENDED GAMES. Thanks twitch, definitely want to watch fortnight like a 9yo. Good job on recommending me that. I watch on any other platform when it’s available. It’s a shame I can’t avoid this platform because it would cost me being able to watch most of the pro matches.

Twitch seemed to be almost flawless, but there should be a limit to each game and how many people can stream at a time. This causes the whole site be really slow and makes the one I’m watching buffer a lot. It would be a simple fix and I feel it there would the people who stream non-stop would take all the spaces, therefore there should be a limit or a quota that streamers need to stay within. If they don’t their accounts will be suspended do a good while. The most I see for a person to stream in a day is no more than 6 hours. That’s a fourth of the day, I think that’s plenty. I understand you deal with a lot of things already, so worry not. I have the patience of a saint. I’ll wait, and take all the time you need to settle this. Thank you and keep up the great work!
Great place to start
by VincentTheFirst on 2018/11/26 19:20
Twitch has always been an amazing service! Love what they do and how they do it! Little buggy here and there but overall great :) ThomasGovens is my channel I play FortNite and Overwatch come say hey! I didn’t write that first part it was auto filled. I kind of like it. I play loads of games and twitch has so many people that there is always someone new to meet and play along with. If you’re new to the app I recommend looking for streamers with about 30-50 people watching. They have enough people in chat that they will engage with you as well but it’s not over flowing and the streamer usually is able to multi task and talk to everyone ;) happy watching and happy streaming
It’s okay but......
by MrDemonWolf on 2018/09/06 09:24
I only rate this low because the app has some problems. For instance, the stream I am watching will freeze from time to time and I have to close the app in order for it to unfreeze. Also, the app has a tendency to not update when ever you pull any menu to refresh. One other thing as well, I only notice this with my streams, whenever I have my stream pulled up on the app, in case my chat doesn’t work on my second screen, whenever I log it out on my computer and shut it down, it still shows myself logged in and streaming on my phone for a good 5 minutes before showing me offline. Now I do not write this in anger or dismissal. Merely informing you of some of the things I have come across. Once these bugs are worked out I will give a better rating. Thank you for your time and have a nice day.
Lagging and Freezing constantly
by RPMurray44 on 2018/08/06 01:52
So the app itself works just fine for my usage but the biggest problem is how laggy the streams are. I’ll be watching the same stream over stable WiFi on my computer and on my phone and the computer will have a 3-4 second delay while the phone has a 15-20 second delay. I’ll watch chat replies to the streamer pop up 7-10 seconds before I hear what they were replying to. The videos and audio freeze constantly and randomly it will “jump ahead” to get back to live and I’ll end up missing parts of what the streamer said. No matter if I’m on strong WiFi or full bars LTE data, I either have to watch in 160p or Audio only because otherwise it just freezes constantly. I’ve had this issue over multiple phones for multiple months. I really hope they fix this.
App still needs more love
by Cmoney2122 on 2019/07/30 17:30
Ive been using the Twitch App for over 4 years now. While it has come a long way in terms of backend support and basic feature ports from the browser version it still lacks in a lot of features like changing your Twitch Prime settings, Sub button on profiles, and prime rewards. These features would improve the app by quite a margin but, the big main flaw for the mobile app is the higher streamer delay compared to all other forms of twitch. I don’t know if that’s something that can be resolved but it’s one big downside to using the Twitch app that really turns me off from using it. Come on Twitch it’d take just one big update to put the App where it should have been 2 years ago
One of my favorite things to do in my free time.
by PowerofdanYT on 2017/10/15 16:21
I LOVE live-streaming, I love to just play games while interacting with some of my fans chatting with each other. This app is almost perfect, but I do have one problem. When I watch livestreams, it freezes every 15-30 minutes. It wouldn’t be a big issue if I wasn’t a speed runner who likes to look at my chat. Because I have to watch my streams to check if everything is okay and talk to the chat, I have to have my stream loaded up on my phone. But I have to stop and refresh the stream every time it freezes. It wastes my speedrunning time. It just a stupid nitpick but I just need to point it out. I don’t know if it’s my internet but yeah. I rate this 4 Stars, obviously.
Glitchy and needs work.
by Zalezagoon on 2017/11/18 03:16
My main problem is the audio only setting. When I have the streams on audio only, it sometimes will crash or will 'pause' the stream, thinking I'm listening to something else when I'm on something like my email, or playing a game on my iPod that's compatible with listening to both the stream and game audio at the same time. Other times, it'll crash, and I don't like that. Streams will also stop and have a brief moment of nothing happening and just being a black screen. Audio only option doesn't work, either, unless I stay on the screen. But if I go to tumblr or something, the audio will pause and won't play until I go and sit on twitch again.
Dark mode is too black and other issues
by hippiehop on 2019/12/13 18:20
Dark mode is too black. Poor design on all platforms now. Chat is hard to read with smaller type and higher contrast and slightly too much space in between lines. Not huge problems on desktop Chrome with FFZ but it is really bad in this app. (Also when I minimize window for pip on iPad and go to another app it pauses now. Very annoying when switching to chat while doing other things.) This is fixed in the new update but it pauses when going back into the app which is equally annoying so I’m leaving it in. Some good changes too but the new design is a disaster on PS4 and desktop too, so one star. Old version from this summer was much better. This went from my favorite service to one I just find annoying to use. Ads are obnoxious too but I mostly watch subs. Makes me never want to browse other channels though.
