Notifications
by spillyonek on 2019/04/20 13:04
What happened to notifications? They worked perfectly fine for all these years but maybe in the last few months I don’t get them at all or very random. I don’t want to miss out on these streams.

Been crashing for several versions, over several weeks. Don't claim you fixed bugs and improved performance when the app still crashes constantly mid-stream.
Consistently Poor Live Streaming

Hate the design
by Raiseon7 on 2019/04/18 10:04
I love using Twitch to watch streams but I hate the design of the app, finding a particular recent stream of someone you are following is unintuitive. This causes me to leave the app and watch other places.
A good app with room for improvement
by lies & deception on 2019/04/18 05:43
The app it self is fine I think it’s just minor features that needs to be added such as a game category to browse the games people are playing and when you pause a stream you have the option to fast forward to where the streamer is at besides things like that it’s a fine app that runs smooth with no problem

I am an avid twitch user but this app is very frustrating
by SillyCow324 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.

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

by R3mAst3R3D on 2019/04/15 19:55
While watching a video, live streamed or not, I will click the button in the bottom right so I can watch the video and use other apps at the same time. When I click the button the video disappears and I have no way to open it back up.i click on the video again, nothing happens. I have to get out of the app to watch the video but I still can’t do what I wanted to do to begin with.

I love the twitch app. Great for watching streams, RCLS games, and OWL matches. The one problem I’ve been having recently is that the app keeps crashing whenever I try and type something in chat or I stay on one stream for around 45 seconds. It’s getting a bit annoying now because I’m not able to cheer bits anymore or watch streams that well. Please let me know if it’s a bug in the app or just my phone.

The app itself works great. Until something happens to your account. Twitch support offers no help whatsoever. There is no phone number or chat line. You send them an email and then you don’t receive help from them for weeks and sometimes months. They are more than willing to help their affiliates right away but an average viewer I highly suggest not spending money because once your account is hacked, you won’t be getting it back.

by KitKat8404 on 2019/04/12 01:10
I downloaded the app because the website wouldn’t load any of the videos (even though I had three bars of WiFi) but after I made an account it would even let me login. I’d type in my stuff and it would flash to the home screen for a split second before kicking me back to the sign in page. This wouldn’t be a problem if there was a way to access the videos without having an account but apparently with the app that’s not possible.

Love the app until the recent update
by Not enough but okay on 2018/06/24 23:40
I have been using Twitch app for about two years now, and have always loved it overall. I think they have always been getting better, adding more and more to the mobile app with the addition of mobile subscribing, the ability to double tap for chat, mobile bits and all. But with this last update I’m very disappointed. I had fallen IN LOVE with the ability to swipe from one streamer on my feed to another and then back to check between them and see how they were doing in game etc. but I am extremely disappointed that it is no longer an option. That was part of why I liked the mobile app so much. I could go from one streamer to the next seamlessly and then back again after a few minutes to enjoy both and get into whoever was currently in a game or who I was in the mood for. Now that I have to go back out and minimize a stream to scroll and find the other streamer then do the same again to go back is downright a decline and a step back from such an amazing feature. Over all the app still is good, allowing me to watch my favorite streamers with ease and interact with the chat fairly well but this feature was a must have and now I’m not sure I will be on the app as much. I’m very disappointed that they would take such a great feature with ease of use out of their app.

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.
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.
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.

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.
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
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.
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 SillyCow324 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.
Feature recommendation: SWIPE
by fingersteam on 2018/10/17 08:11
Please bring back the swipe left/right feature available in previous versions of the Twitch App used to change between channels. One bug I would like to mention is when you scroll down your follower list and select a stream and then go back to your follower list, the App bumps the list back to the top again. Almost every time I leave a stream and go back to the follower list it resets back to the highest viewer streams. What makes this especially inconvenient is many streams I like are Speedrunners who have viewer counts in the low hundreds and not the thousands like some of the big streams I follow. This bug/feature feels unintended and clunky it would be nice to return to where I was at in my follower list like a bookmark instead if having to scroll way down again.
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.
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
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
not good enough
by Ammmirr12345 on 2018/08/12 12:43
Despite all the bad reviews that I’ve seen in internet about twitch app, I think it works fine. It has only crashed once or twice since I downloaded it (about a year ago) and I like it because browsing here is so much faster than the site and of course, unlike the “mobile friendly” interface, this one actually works! but still there is space for development, you can’t customize your account nearly as much as you can in the site, and you still can’t subscribe to your favorite channels or check your active subscriptions which is very important. I think what everyone’s complaining about isn’t that this doesn’t have good features, but it’s that this app still misses some of the very normal and expected features. Hurry up twitch!
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? 🤔
JUST ONE REQUEST
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.
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.
👎👎🏻👎🏼👎🏽👎🏾👎🏿👎🏾👎🏽👎🏼👎🏻👎
by N3h3m on 2018/05/11 00:08
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...
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.
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
Concerns
by sir ayeetus on 2019/02/14 19:27
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!
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.
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.
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.
Love Twitch.... But hate the app...
by Gagagagagagaggagagahshd on 2019/04/07 17:54
I’ve been a fan of twitch for almost 2 years now. So much that I decided to download the app on my phone to watch my streamers while I’m not doing anything at school. But I have plenty of issues with the mobile app. For starters, the MAJORITY of the streams I wanna watch freeze up when I click them, even after restarting the app. Second, the streams that will play for me lag 100% of the time. And I know for a fact that it isn’t my internet. I have LTE full bars, in a city that uses the same provider I use. And every other app works perfectly fine. Third, this app always crashes after I’ve been using for me than 20 min. Not a fan of the app. But Twitch in general on PC, I love it. If it gets fixed, I will most definitely 5 star this app but until then, I’m not satisfied. Get it fixed, please.
[Edited] Text Issue Solved
by pagesinked on 2018/09/26 03:44
Edit: This text issue is solved, working better now! Needs improvements on minimized mode. Trying to watch streams with other apps open is a pain, if I switch to another app while watching the stream will not stay open and the mini window closes after a short time. Also, stream lags and is delayed after a while and switching quality seems to alleviate it for a while. [Original] Worked fine until recently, chat that comes through is fine and readable but text you are actively typing to chat is black on a dark background and you can't read what you're typing. Seems to activate after using emotes in the chat.
99% of the time my streams either don’t start, or get cut off like 15 minutes in.
by DiamondcrafterA(YouTuber name) on 2018/01/28 03:25
Most of the time when I start a stream it just gets cut off right away. What happens is it shows that I’m streaming then it closes and sends me back to my channel. It is stupid. I’d rate his lower if I could because this has been happening for a long time and I’ve contacted about it but still nothing has happened about it. (I use an iPhone 6S btw) PLEASE do SOMETHING about it. Also, I’d like to be able to chose what game I’m playing from my mobile device as I am starting my mobile stream. (I need to use my phone because I cannot afford a computer)
Vods are Still Broken
by Crashes Frequently on 2018/08/29 04:45
Hey Twitch, I understand you’re trying your hardest, but seriously? The vods have been broken/ janky for almost a year. All these updates have gone by, some things get fixed and some stay. The last update, I’ll give you props for finally fixing the pausing. (Hitting resume would result in no audio and desync between video and audio playback. But still, I’m finding the VODS to be janky as heck. There’s still desync! If I start using the 30/10 forward/back, eventually the whole thing manages to screw itself up. The video eventually is not actually where the time stamp indicates? Please fix this, every time this happens, I have to spend another couple minutes trying to find the time where the video “actually was”
A little buggy..
by AllyD(: on 2018/08/05 03:21
I love this app and it has worked great for me in the past but recently it hasn’t been loading live streams correctly. I’ll tap on a live stream and it’ll either take forever to load and then just pause out of nowhere during the stream and take forever to load again or it just never loads and I get a black screen. Also, when the stream does load, I can’t play it at 1080p res like I used to, I have to put it at like 480p for it to stream smoothly and that’s never happened before and I know it’s not my internet because everything else loads fine. I hope this gets fixed!
Great! but DEFINITELY needs some work.
by The Dingus named Davin on 2018/04/06 22:42
1. I use this almost daily to watch overwatch content (and some other things). With the new update it allows you to watch ads to earn bits (+2 per ad) and suddenly the button disappeared. I had donated 202 bits to the overwatch league and planning to get 300 bits donated (for in-game items). I’ve uninstalled and reinstalled over 4 times to no avail of the button returning. 2. The web browser side is far superior compared to the app. The extensions to see viewers location was cool and all but I feel like the something like what the overwatch league has on their web browser twitch page would be great. That way, I do not have to go back to the web browser to check the global progress (in bits).
Streams freeze constantly
by Doyle rules11 on 2017/10/28 17:10
It is not the app it used to be. Before the streams would never freeze and there have been many updates but none have addressed this issue. If you want to watch twitch you are way better off watching on pc. The streams constantly freeze and you have to reload the stream. The audio and stream will get off and be laggy and you have to reload the stream. If you’re not subbed or have twitch prime when you reload the stream more often than not you will have to watch ads and then you get stuck in a endless loop of streams freezing and having to reload them and then having to watch ads. It seriously gets so frustrating. Definitely wouldn’t recommend watching on the app until this issue gets fixed which it hasn’t in 6 months so it probably won’t ever get fixed.
Can’t get notifications to work?
by A random artist on 2017/11/12 22:30
There are a lot of streamers who I love to watch on twitch and you can find good things to watch, and that of which I applaud. But the reason I’m only giving three stars is because for some reason I haven’t been getting any notifications on my app(iOS). I’ve tried as much as I could, including deleting the app and reinstalling, logging out and back in, checking my profile online, going into settings, looking at other problems people have seen and I can’t figure out why my notifications aren’t working. This makes wanting to catch a stream of like to watch hard and disappointing. I’m not sure if anyone else has a similar problem, but that’s my issue.
Great app, but bit ads aren’t great.
by Breezycoin342 on 2018/08/03 21:03
I have enjoyed this app alot, and many troubles i’ve seen with other users i never got. This however, doesnt help. I dont pay money for bits, and rely exclusively on ads for my bits. My problem with them begin with constant “interactive” ads, which just have you click the screen then rate how you felt. That problem stems from the fact that some regular ads are more interactive than the interactive ones. But that doesnt end it. Some of these interactive ads are repetitive. I had one session in which i clicked for an ad, and it asked if i was a mother with a child between the ages of 16 and 22. I said no, then it asked my age and gender. I put my age and that i was a male, and it gave me an ad correspondingly. Well, that same ad came up for the rest of the session i was trying to get bits during. Not to add to it that these ads dont always give bits. I’ve found it to be a half of the time. Normal ads will always give bits if you get a normal ad. These have grown more prevelent. Thank you for your time, and have a nice day.
Review from a streamer.
by Lonewolf_Mcquaid on 2018/11/27 02:22
I’ve only just begun to build my streaming base and start finding out who I am as a twitch streamer. But I can say this, it is absolutely amazing. It’s always an awe striking night whether I’m watching someone’s stream, playing with one of my buddies in custom matches on their streams or having a good time making a fool of myself on my own stream with the few who come to be entertained. I love doing it and can’t wait to grow and be able to offer more to all my viewers as well as to see what twitch comes up with next. Thank you guys for all you do and all your working hard to do in the future.
Freezes a lot
by Jigsaw1995 on 2018/01/08 08:13
I love having twitch on my phone I get to watch my favorite streamers on the go but since they updated to the whole new look for it. It hasn’t been functioning correctly. I will tap on a channel to look at past broadcasts to the info on the stream and it will just freeze and won’t let me click anything. I have to close out of the app all together and even that takes time to fully close. And it isn’t the same channels one day a channel could work perfectly fine and the next it doesn’t. I give it 3 stars instead of 4 because this has been happing since the whole appearance change of the app and they haven’t done a single thing to fix it.
FIX STICKERS PLSSSSSSSSS
by >sniper< on 2018/04/09 14:06
The app is great I have no complaints aside from a couple things I had trouble navigating to but it’s probably user error or that I can’t access everything I can on the website. PLS FIX STICKERS... why is the quality of some of the stickers so bad. Some of the stickers are very poor quality. I’m talking about the stickers we can send in text messages. For example KappaPride is high res but Kappa is very low res and so is :BabyRage: I don’t understand why all the picture qualities of the stickers aren’t 💯 seems kinda odd that the stickers aren’t all good quality. Should be an easy fix thanks.

Crash on hosts.
by Leamon Head on 2017/12/16 06:23
Will show me the streamers that I'm following but crashes when it scroll down to the ones that are hosting. That means that the app instantly crashes when none of them are currently live. When I delete the app then download it again, the first time I open the app it shows all the streamers I am following and the ones hosting and offline with small little icons and it works fine. Until I want to go back and change what I'm watching or if I close the app then reopen it or if there is lag of any kind. Then when I reopen the app all the icons are huge and the app crashes on the hosts again. I have to completely delete the app and download it again every time I want to view something else or I close and reopen the app or if there is lag. It has become unusable.
Great app, but I miss the swiping feature
by Shaymin77 on 2018/08/22 18:30
The Twitch app is so good. I honestly probably use it more than the actual website when I am on my computer. The app is very clean, easy to use, and looks great overall. No ads either which is a huge plus. I do however have some complaints. I miss the swiping feature they used to have. It was so easy to go from one streamer to the other with ease. Now i have to take it out of theater mode and minimize the stream, and then change to someone else. I get that it could be annoying when accidently swiping, but at least make it an option in the settings to turn it on and off. The other complaint i have is very minor, but on the Iphone i can no long see my battery or time when i tap the screen in theater mode. Not a big deal, but it was nice being able to see that stuff when i’m watching Twitch for long periods of time. Overall it’s a great app, probably the best in the app store being free, and I frequently recommend it to others.
It’s good while it works
by MasonTryHard1738 on 2018/05/03 02:29
This app is a lot of fun and well organized but it has some major flaws. It often randomly closes out and is unstable sometimes, and it’s not one of those apps that when they close out you can just access them back, once Twitch crashes, you can’t get back on most the time. I have tried getting in five times in a row and and it haven’t been working. Also the chat and video are slightly delayed but that’s not a huge problem. If this app was stable I would give a 4 no doubt and I would highly consider a 5. So if you aren’t watching on a pc or a relatively stable mobile device, don’t even bother with downloading this app.
Good app but freezes
by Jenetiik on 2018/01/12 23:15
It’s a great app to watch live gameplay from streams whenever you want. Though recently there has been a problem with freezing as I watched past broadcasts videos or even going on a streamers page and having it stop working until it boots me out of the app. This is my only complaint about it, the app is very good, when you watch a stream it timestamps when you got off the stream so you can go back to watch it where you left off, and you can have a live chat now that they added this for the app too. To end it off, It’s good but it freezes at times.

Notifications
by spillyonek on 2019/04/20 13:04
What happened to notifications? They worked perfectly fine for all these years but maybe in the last few months I don’t get them at all or very random. I don’t want to miss out on these streams.

Still crashing frequently. Now background playback is choppy and unintelligible. Every new version claims performance improvements and bug fixes, but so far things have only gotten worse. _________________ Crash crash crash, left right and center. Been crashing for several versions, over several weeks. Don't claim you fixed bugs and improved performance when the app still crashes constantly mid-stream.
Consistently Poor Live Streaming

Hate the design
by Raiseon7 on 2019/04/18 10:04
I love using Twitch to watch streams but I hate the design of the app, finding a particular recent stream of someone you are following is unintuitive. This causes me to leave the app and watch other places.
A good app with room for improvement
by lies & deception on 2019/04/18 05:43
The app it self is fine I think it’s just minor features that needs to be added such as a game category to browse the games people are playing and when you pause a stream you have the option to fast forward to where the streamer is at besides things like that it’s a fine app that runs smooth with no problem
Hi

Good
I am an avid twitch user but this app is very frustrating
by SillyCow324 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.

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

While watching a video, live streamed or not, I will click the button in the bottom right so I can watch the video and use other apps at the same time. When I click the button the video disappears and I have no way to open it back up.i click on the video again, nothing happens. I have to get out of the app to watch the video but I still can’t do what I wanted to do to begin with.

I love the twitch app. Great for watching streams, RCLS games, and OWL matches. The one problem I’ve been having recently is that the app keeps crashing whenever I try and type something in chat or I stay on one stream for around 45 seconds. It’s getting a bit annoying now because I’m not able to cheer bits anymore or watch streams that well. Please let me know if it’s a bug in the app or just my phone.

by Zoologists1357 on 2019/04/12 21:10
The app itself works great. Until something happens to your account. Twitch support offers no help whatsoever. There is no phone number or chat line. You send them an email and then you don’t receive help from them for weeks and sometimes months. They are more than willing to help their affiliates right away but an average viewer I highly suggest not spending money because once your account is hacked, you won’t be getting it back.

by KitKat8404 on 2019/04/12 01:10
I downloaded the app because the website wouldn’t load any of the videos (even though I had three bars of WiFi) but after I made an account it would even let me login. I’d type in my stuff and it would flash to the home screen for a split second before kicking me back to the sign in page. This wouldn’t be a problem if there was a way to access the videos without having an account but apparently with the app that’s not possible.

AirPlay malfunction
by Ogpatrickw on 2019/04/11 04:12
With this version, whenever I mirror my iPhone to my Apple TV, it will not play any of the Twitch streams from any streamer. It was a bit of a hassle to find this out today. Hopefully it will be patched soon.
Can’t even sign up

Recommendations
by Good Cushie on 2019/04/10 15:26
I enjoyed the app a lot until they started shoving the recommended streamers down my throat. I mean there’s a discover and a browse tab that the recommendations could be put under instead of the following tab. Think of changing it please.

Crashes after 30 seconds

Not sure why. Worked for a few days. No after 30 seconds the screen goes black it shuts the stream I’m watching and then resets to the home page 😞

Don’t patch
by Unhappycustomer1736378 on 2019/04/09 22:19
Latest patch has twitch ads every 10 minutes that make the whole stream need to reload. Don’t update, they didn’t add anything useful, just made it waste data.

Love the app until the recent update
by Not enough but okay on 2018/06/24 23:40
I have been using Twitch app for about two years now, and have always loved it overall. I think they have always been getting better, adding more and more to the mobile app with the addition of mobile subscribing, the ability to double tap for chat, mobile bits and all. But with this last update I’m very disappointed. I had fallen IN LOVE with the ability to swipe from one streamer on my feed to another and then back to check between them and see how they were doing in game etc. but I am extremely disappointed that it is no longer an option. That was part of why I liked the mobile app so much. I could go from one streamer to the next seamlessly and then back again after a few minutes to enjoy both and get into whoever was currently in a game or who I was in the mood for. Now that I have to go back out and minimize a stream to scroll and find the other streamer then do the same again to go back is downright a decline and a step back from such an amazing feature. Over all the app still is good, allowing me to watch my favorite streamers with ease and interact with the chat fairly well but this feature was a must have and now I’m not sure I will be on the app as much. I’m very disappointed that they would take such a great feature with ease of use out of their app.
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
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 SillyCow324 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.
Feature recommendation: SWIPE
by fingersteam on 2018/10/17 08:11
Please bring back the swipe left/right feature available in previous versions of the Twitch App used to change between channels. One bug I would like to mention is when you scroll down your follower list and select a stream and then go back to your follower list, the App bumps the list back to the top again. Almost every time I leave a stream and go back to the follower list it resets back to the highest viewer streams. What makes this especially inconvenient is many streams I like are Speedrunners who have viewer counts in the low hundreds and not the thousands like some of the big streams I follow. This bug/feature feels unintended and clunky it would be nice to return to where I was at in my follower list like a bookmark instead if having to scroll way down again.
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.
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
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
not good enough
by Ammmirr12345 on 2018/08/12 12:43
Despite all the bad reviews that I’ve seen in internet about twitch app, I think it works fine. It has only crashed once or twice since I downloaded it (about a year ago) and I like it because browsing here is so much faster than the site and of course, unlike the “mobile friendly” interface, this one actually works! but still there is space for development, you can’t customize your account nearly as much as you can in the site, and you still can’t subscribe to your favorite channels or check your active subscriptions which is very important. I think what everyone’s complaining about isn’t that this doesn’t have good features, but it’s that this app still misses some of the very normal and expected features. Hurry up twitch!
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? 🤔
JUST ONE REQUEST
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.
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.
👎👎🏻👎🏼👎🏽👎🏾👎🏿👎🏾👎🏽👎🏼👎🏻👎
by N3h3m on 2018/05/11 00:08
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...
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.
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
Concerns
by sir ayeetus on 2019/02/14 19:27
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!
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.
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.
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.
Love Twitch.... But hate the app...
by Gagagagagagaggagagahshd on 2019/04/07 17:54
I’ve been a fan of twitch for almost 2 years now. So much that I decided to download the app on my phone to watch my streamers while I’m not doing anything at school. But I have plenty of issues with the mobile app. For starters, the MAJORITY of the streams I wanna watch freeze up when I click them, even after restarting the app. Second, the streams that will play for me lag 100% of the time. And I know for a fact that it isn’t my internet. I have LTE full bars, in a city that uses the same provider I use. And every other app works perfectly fine. Third, this app always crashes after I’ve been using for me than 20 min. Not a fan of the app. But Twitch in general on PC, I love it. If it gets fixed, I will most definitely 5 star this app but until then, I’m not satisfied. Get it fixed, please.
[Edited] Text Issue Solved
by pagesinked on 2018/09/26 03:44
Edit: This text issue is solved, working better now! Needs improvements on minimized mode. Trying to watch streams with other apps open is a pain, if I switch to another app while watching the stream will not stay open and the mini window closes after a short time. Also, stream lags and is delayed after a while and switching quality seems to alleviate it for a while. [Original] Worked fine until recently, chat that comes through is fine and readable but text you are actively typing to chat is black on a dark background and you can't read what you're typing. Seems to activate after using emotes in the chat.
99% of the time my streams either don’t start, or get cut off like 15 minutes in.
by DiamondcrafterA(YouTuber name) on 2018/01/28 03:25
Most of the time when I start a stream it just gets cut off right away. What happens is it shows that I’m streaming then it closes and sends me back to my channel. It is stupid. I’d rate his lower if I could because this has been happening for a long time and I’ve contacted about it but still nothing has happened about it. (I use an iPhone 6S btw) PLEASE do SOMETHING about it. Also, I’d like to be able to chose what game I’m playing from my mobile device as I am starting my mobile stream. (I need to use my phone because I cannot afford a computer)
Vods are Still Broken
by Crashes Frequently on 2018/08/29 04:45
Hey Twitch, I understand you’re trying your hardest, but seriously? The vods have been broken/ janky for almost a year. All these updates have gone by, some things get fixed and some stay. The last update, I’ll give you props for finally fixing the pausing. (Hitting resume would result in no audio and desync between video and audio playback. But still, I’m finding the VODS to be janky as heck. There’s still desync! If I start using the 30/10 forward/back, eventually the whole thing manages to screw itself up. The video eventually is not actually where the time stamp indicates? Please fix this, every time this happens, I have to spend another couple minutes trying to find the time where the video “actually was”
A little buggy..
by AllyD(: on 2018/08/05 03:21
I love this app and it has worked great for me in the past but recently it hasn’t been loading live streams correctly. I’ll tap on a live stream and it’ll either take forever to load and then just pause out of nowhere during the stream and take forever to load again or it just never loads and I get a black screen. Also, when the stream does load, I can’t play it at 1080p res like I used to, I have to put it at like 480p for it to stream smoothly and that’s never happened before and I know it’s not my internet because everything else loads fine. I hope this gets fixed!
Great! but DEFINITELY needs some work.
by The Dingus named Davin on 2018/04/06 22:42
1. I use this almost daily to watch overwatch content (and some other things). With the new update it allows you to watch ads to earn bits (+2 per ad) and suddenly the button disappeared. I had donated 202 bits to the overwatch league and planning to get 300 bits donated (for in-game items). I’ve uninstalled and reinstalled over 4 times to no avail of the button returning. 2. The web browser side is far superior compared to the app. The extensions to see viewers location was cool and all but I feel like the something like what the overwatch league has on their web browser twitch page would be great. That way, I do not have to go back to the web browser to check the global progress (in bits).
Streams freeze constantly
by Doyle rules11 on 2017/10/28 17:10
It is not the app it used to be. Before the streams would never freeze and there have been many updates but none have addressed this issue. If you want to watch twitch you are way better off watching on pc. The streams constantly freeze and you have to reload the stream. The audio and stream will get off and be laggy and you have to reload the stream. If you’re not subbed or have twitch prime when you reload the stream more often than not you will have to watch ads and then you get stuck in a endless loop of streams freezing and having to reload them and then having to watch ads. It seriously gets so frustrating. Definitely wouldn’t recommend watching on the app until this issue gets fixed which it hasn’t in 6 months so it probably won’t ever get fixed.
Can’t get notifications to work?
by A random artist on 2017/11/12 22:30
There are a lot of streamers who I love to watch on twitch and you can find good things to watch, and that of which I applaud. But the reason I’m only giving three stars is because for some reason I haven’t been getting any notifications on my app(iOS). I’ve tried as much as I could, including deleting the app and reinstalling, logging out and back in, checking my profile online, going into settings, looking at other problems people have seen and I can’t figure out why my notifications aren’t working. This makes wanting to catch a stream of like to watch hard and disappointing. I’m not sure if anyone else has a similar problem, but that’s my issue.
Great app, but bit ads aren’t great.
by Breezycoin342 on 2018/08/03 21:03
I have enjoyed this app alot, and many troubles i’ve seen with other users i never got. This however, doesnt help. I dont pay money for bits, and rely exclusively on ads for my bits. My problem with them begin with constant “interactive” ads, which just have you click the screen then rate how you felt. That problem stems from the fact that some regular ads are more interactive than the interactive ones. But that doesnt end it. Some of these interactive ads are repetitive. I had one session in which i clicked for an ad, and it asked if i was a mother with a child between the ages of 16 and 22. I said no, then it asked my age and gender. I put my age and that i was a male, and it gave me an ad correspondingly. Well, that same ad came up for the rest of the session i was trying to get bits during. Not to add to it that these ads dont always give bits. I’ve found it to be a half of the time. Normal ads will always give bits if you get a normal ad. These have grown more prevelent. Thank you for your time, and have a nice day.
Review from a streamer.
by Lonewolf_Mcquaid on 2018/11/27 02:22
I’ve only just begun to build my streaming base and start finding out who I am as a twitch streamer. But I can say this, it is absolutely amazing. It’s always an awe striking night whether I’m watching someone’s stream, playing with one of my buddies in custom matches on their streams or having a good time making a fool of myself on my own stream with the few who come to be entertained. I love doing it and can’t wait to grow and be able to offer more to all my viewers as well as to see what twitch comes up with next. Thank you guys for all you do and all your working hard to do in the future.
Freezes a lot
by Jigsaw1995 on 2018/01/08 08:13
I love having twitch on my phone I get to watch my favorite streamers on the go but since they updated to the whole new look for it. It hasn’t been functioning correctly. I will tap on a channel to look at past broadcasts to the info on the stream and it will just freeze and won’t let me click anything. I have to close out of the app all together and even that takes time to fully close. And it isn’t the same channels one day a channel could work perfectly fine and the next it doesn’t. I give it 3 stars instead of 4 because this has been happing since the whole appearance change of the app and they haven’t done a single thing to fix it.
FIX STICKERS PLSSSSSSSSS
by >sniper< on 2018/04/09 14:06
The app is great I have no complaints aside from a couple things I had trouble navigating to but it’s probably user error or that I can’t access everything I can on the website. PLS FIX STICKERS... why is the quality of some of the stickers so bad. Some of the stickers are very poor quality. I’m talking about the stickers we can send in text messages. For example KappaPride is high res but Kappa is very low res and so is :BabyRage: I don’t understand why all the picture qualities of the stickers aren’t 💯 seems kinda odd that the stickers aren’t all good quality. Should be an easy fix thanks.

Crash on hosts.
by Leamon Head on 2017/12/16 06:23
Will show me the streamers that I'm following but crashes when it scroll down to the ones that are hosting. That means that the app instantly crashes when none of them are currently live. When I delete the app then download it again, the first time I open the app it shows all the streamers I am following and the ones hosting and offline with small little icons and it works fine. Until I want to go back and change what I'm watching or if I close the app then reopen it or if there is lag of any kind. Then when I reopen the app all the icons are huge and the app crashes on the hosts again. I have to completely delete the app and download it again every time I want to view something else or I close and reopen the app or if there is lag. It has become unusable.
Great app, but I miss the swiping feature
by Shaymin77 on 2018/08/22 18:30
The Twitch app is so good. I honestly probably use it more than the actual website when I am on my computer. The app is very clean, easy to use, and looks great overall. No ads either which is a huge plus. I do however have some complaints. I miss the swiping feature they used to have. It was so easy to go from one streamer to the other with ease. Now i have to take it out of theater mode and minimize the stream, and then change to someone else. I get that it could be annoying when accidently swiping, but at least make it an option in the settings to turn it on and off. The other complaint i have is very minor, but on the Iphone i can no long see my battery or time when i tap the screen in theater mode. Not a big deal, but it was nice being able to see that stuff when i’m watching Twitch for long periods of time. Overall it’s a great app, probably the best in the app store being free, and I frequently recommend it to others.
It’s good while it works
by MasonTryHard1738 on 2018/05/03 02:29
This app is a lot of fun and well organized but it has some major flaws. It often randomly closes out and is unstable sometimes, and it’s not one of those apps that when they close out you can just access them back, once Twitch crashes, you can’t get back on most the time. I have tried getting in five times in a row and and it haven’t been working. Also the chat and video are slightly delayed but that’s not a huge problem. If this app was stable I would give a 4 no doubt and I would highly consider a 5. So if you aren’t watching on a pc or a relatively stable mobile device, don’t even bother with downloading this app.
Good app but freezes
by Jenetiik on 2018/01/12 23:15
It’s a great app to watch live gameplay from streams whenever you want. Though recently there has been a problem with freezing as I watched past broadcasts videos or even going on a streamers page and having it stop working until it boots me out of the app. This is my only complaint about it, the app is very good, when you watch a stream it timestamps when you got off the stream so you can go back to watch it where you left off, and you can have a live chat now that they added this for the app too. To end it off, It’s good but it freezes at times.
