BEST STREAMING
by MASTERLIO0424 on 2020/11/27 23:29
This is the best place to watch streams and stream. It is super easy to start streaming and is the best!
Doesn’t close
by crazyeyecarl on 2020/11/27 21:24
It use to close when you closed the window. Now it minimizes, or plays in the back ground. I’m not saying I minimized it. I’m saying i tried to swipe it closed and it minimized instead. Developers these days are too busy focusing on pats on the back instead of making sure their updates work right.
FIX PUSH NOTIFICATIONS!
by bauls in butt on 2020/11/27 21:01
I keep missing out on live streams because the app insists on resetting my notifications to off. Why does it do this? It’s frustrating and makes me want to uninstall it.
So many ads.

Not a good mobile app. First of all, the username I use for everything didn’t work because it was (offensive) because it had the word ugly in it. I changed it to something else and it said I was making accounts too fast. None of this happened on my computer and I am done trying.

Sexually girls and harassment
by Creeeeeeeeeseseesssssssssz on 2020/11/26 19:28
Ok so all the girls where there were rubbing boobs round the circles and also doing the wink and the toungue.

Live streams always freezing on my mobile device
by TAZMANIANCARTIST on 2020/11/26 15:27
Every time I try to watch a live stream, it always freezes. If I'm on wifi or not. Its so annoying, I cant even support my friends who stream because I don't even want to use the app because its like trying to watch youtube videos in a basement with no service. I have an iPhone 11. It shouldn't have any issue playing 1080p video sources.

So Many Bugs
by Flyheart45 on 2020/11/26 03:54
I love the platform of Twitch itself and watching streams, but the app is riddled with issues. 1. While watching streams, they constantly pause for long stretches of time only to randomly begin playing again and then immediately pause again. I know this isn’t an internet issue because I try using LTE and it continues to happen and this is an issue I’ve never experienced watching streams on Youtube. 2. The stream also mutes randomly until I close the stream and enter again. 3. While in full screen, hitting a certain part of the screen makes the unfollow warning come up even though the button is nowhere in view and should be inaccessible when the screen is in that position. I have accidentally unfollowed people for many days because of this. 4. The play/pause button will randomly disappear on streams. 5. The app usually keeps playing audio when the app is exited but today I have been experiencing it immediately pausing as soon as I exit. 6. Not so much a bug- but I think there really should be an auto play off option. I like to go to sleep watching vods and when I wake up, I’ve watched many vods that automatically played and no longer know what I have watched and what I haven’t.

Ads on subbed channel
by ZeRealTwiggy on 2020/11/25 23:24
Basically the title. Twitch claims there are no ads when you sub to your favorite channel yet the ad shows up anyway. Goes to another subbed channel Also ads. Goes back to the first subbed channel. guess what more ads. How desperate are you that you have to reroll ads after they played and we navigate away AND put ads ON the SUBSCRIBED CHANNELS!

this place started out questionable and then popped 30 sec ads on streamers struggling to get views. nobody has time to watch 30 seconds to three minutes of ads between watching ten seconds of new streamers to find out if you are interested. they dont care about their streamers or viewers. whole website is a scam and falling apart. not even fun to watch people play on here anymore.

I started getting frustrated which caused me to throw my phone and breaking it in the process. So why i weight the review? Well i just hope that they respond but for now: twitch developers, what. the. hell if i don’t get my password reset I’m just deleting the app completely and never installing it again. I know i sound like a Karen right now but I’m just frustrated.

Awful App
by beccazag on 2020/11/24 17:55
As a whole, I love twitch. Many people I know stream and I love to keep up when they’re live, and being a busy person I can’t always do it from my computer. With that being said, this app is terrible. The pages never load, I can’t follow any new pages or see who I’m following, I can’t type in chat, and can’t access any of my mod settings anymore. I don’t know what happened with this update but it completely ruined the app for me. So many of my friends are having the same issues and it’s extremely frustrating.

Fix this problem
by LJ_MATS99 on 2020/11/23 18:22
When watching back streams Twitch has a section for streams you’re in the middle of. So how come when I click on the video or even when I’m in the middle of a video and leave the app just to address a notification, it doesn’t save my progress in the video. Every time it takes me back to 0 so I have to memorize where I am in the video and re-scroll to that point, even if I just closed out of the app for a second. Twitch that’s an awful feature and it can’t be difficult to save the progress of the video. YouTube can save the progress for months if u were in the middle of a video. Why can’t u do something that simple Twitch?

App says 17+ but google says 13+
by kittykat. '(.)' on 2020/11/23 00:28
I just wanted to know if you have to be at least 17 to stream on twitch because google says you have to be at least 13. And I’m pretty sure this was made for pc but the mobile version could be a bit better. Then again I just got it a few days ago lol. I also wanted to know if you could turn off live chat and go completely full screen.
disappointing..?
by skJindo on 2020/11/22 23:09
i've never written a review, but i am today cuz of how much i'm disappointed. my blood isn't boiling or whatever. but twitch is one of THE biggest streaming services out there, yet they can't let me watch a stream i missed. my wifi is good and all that, but the app has so much trouble playing the stream when the app is open. but when i play the stream and i switch to another app, THEN it decides it can play, but only the audio. i'm surprised by the poor performance from such a big name service.

Great For Viewer But Not Creators
by FudginSean on 2020/11/21 13:36
There’s not a whole lot of creator control options but other than that a good app for viewing. There are a few downsides to the viewer as well though. With emote extensions , such as bttv and FrankerFaceZ, the non-option for those emotes is a little unfortunate. TL;DR More options for emotes More creator options Overall good application but lacking in functionality
Not working
by Ms.Fabo on 2020/11/21 06:23
I just downloaded and started an account with Twitch. I am following the music and dj_camilo. The video and audio keeps stopping. And I cannot chat on the channel because the keyboard doesn’t pop up. I can tell by other people’s comments that they are not having the issues I am having. I can go into another app like Instagram and Twitch audio starts playing! I can leave and go to my phone’s homepage and the Twitch audio starts playing. I know it’s Twitch because @dj_camilo is playing. Please fix the issues or do I have a bad app?

by RecklessGolfer on 2020/11/20 02:26
Been using Twitch for a long time. Recently I’ve noticed all of my favorites streamer videos are gone. I can’t watch most of the stream while I’m at work or out doing something. I do rely on saved video on Twitch. Not sure if I should jump ship and find another streaming apps. Maybe this is time to move on, was one of the best apps for a very long time.

Video won’t play on app
by Jayquak on 2020/11/20 01:22
Is there some update I might need? The video will not play on my app. Wether it be live or previous uploaded. Please help
It was great until a recent update kinda ruined it for me
by NinjaMaster21 on 2019/08/09 10:59
One of the things that I like about Twitch is being able to clip moments from my favorite streamers, being able to edit and trimming the clips was always fun to do and letting you see how the clip turned out during and in the end of the trimming process was always satisfying. However after I recently updated the app the clips that I, well clipped, weren’t showing during the trimming process making it hard for me to know what unnecessary fluff I need to take out. So I pretty much gotta leave the clip unedited and hope that I timed it right which isn’t fun for me if I don’t know how it turns out after trimming it. I don’t know if I’m the only one with this problem but if I’m not and others have this problem and they can fix that issue that’ll be great and I might give it a 5 star because I actually like the app. Update: a recent update fixed it, so now I’m happy and will give it 5 stars.
Some problems
by Crazykid0416 on 2020/05/26 18:56
A bug still exists that has for a long time where when in dark mode, certain movements or actions can cause the app to switch to light mode, which takes a long time and 4 menu pages to flip through to turn it back on which is inconvenient and slightly annoying. Another issue exists that when you are watching a stream in full screen mode and you double tap to open chat, and you click on a chatter’s name, a menu will pop up that allows you to gift them a sub, or look at their info etc. The problem is that when this menu pops up when in fullscreen (phone sideways), there’s no way to close the menu; you can’t click anywhere to get rid of the menu as it takes up the entire screen, and the only way to close it is to flip your device and go back to non-fullscreen, tap anywhere outside of the menu, and it’ll close. Again, this is an issue that has a solution but requires a lot of time spent to undo which can be annoying for users. A simple fix would be to add a close button for this menu, both in fullscreen and non-fullscreen. Similar to the last issue, when you tap on emotes in chat, the only way to close the menu is to click outside the menu which can be difficult/inconvenient. The same solution exists where all that is needed for this problem is to add exit buttons to menus.
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.
An odd platform
by thebeachwalk on 2020/08/20 06:57
A truly odd platform. With twitch most obviously dominating the live streaming market, and consumers or users having nowhere to go they must resort to twitch. However, is twitch really the best for streamers. Like most companies, there is always favoritism, but it seems to have shined in drastic measures. Where as twitch claims they treat everyone at the same by law and standard, but then the same action is enforced differently. This causes odd encounters like the ones with the infamous “Alinity”. She notably did some actions that were called out by millions and even companies but nothing happened. However this is the least of my concern. The true concern is that she had to ask for a ban, and that the moderation accepted this. When a user has such high power or the high powered of the system is cause discourse, and arguments arise. Twitch is a decent platform but they get shot down with their mediocre at best moderation team who has to be asked by the civilians of the city, or streamers, to have actions done, even when they know these actions have been done. Simply put, the admins and moderation have too much power in the scheme of things. And while power is needed, it’s being incorrectly used by the staff to punish some and not others. Thank you.
Unstable
by Sarastartree on 2017/12/14 00:23
While it often works and is still a very valid, not at all half-baked alternative to the website, it has been fairly unstable for me since day one. I’m nowhere near a frequenter of Twitch, just occasionally watch the streams of people like Vinesauce and Vargskelethor, but it’s become harder to handle since the new iOS update that changed the layout of the menu you get when you double-click the home button. Whenever I decide to play the stream in the corner of my screen, it pauses, and sometimes simply disappears. Today has been one of the worst days I’ve used it, as I can only spend, say, a minute on the app before it freezes up and forces me out. This isn’t the first time this has happened, either. Maybe the solid third time, and I’m fully unable to access the streams for more than maybe 20 seconds before it quits out. I’ve tried resetting my iPad and redownloading the app, but to no avail. I’m certain it’s an issue with the servers at this point, and a very pesky one. Please fix this as soon as possible, so I can actually use your app. Thank you.
Unstable as of late
by Shane247 on 2018/11/26 05:19
I used to never have problems with twitch, it was one of the apps I used to always get on and just watch a stream for fun. After a while I left because had life things to handle. But recently I decided it was a good time to get back on twitch. Was I wrong, yes and no. While the audio is fine without video, I’ve had troubles watching a stream and have audio at the same time. While the video plays just fine, it’s the audio that don’t work well on the stream. While I’ve been thinking maybe it could be my end, but when it’s been constant, I just don’t see the point in watching anything. Another thing, you removed the option to switch from 720 to something like 480, how can you test something to make sure it’s not your end if you actually take away a feature that was fine to begin with. I get the times are changing and technology is getting more and more advanced, trust me, I was born in the age of technology’s very beginnings of taking over. Just fix the stability of the app please, is that so much to ask. And please just add back a 480p button just for the users who can’t watch in 720.
Very solid but still loads of room for improvement
by gqerez on 2020/08/24 20:21
I have been viewing twitch more and more and honestly the best twitch experience on mobile is this app. But there are a few things that if implemented, would greatly enhance the app. There have been a few times where I wanted to link my twitch and prime accounts but there is no option to do so on this mobile app. It would be great to be able to support my favorite creators with out worrying about missing a chunk of their stream. Overall there are a variety of features lacking on the app that really make me feel like I’m missing out while being a primarily mobile user. The only benefit to getting twitch prime on mobile is the crown symbol next to my name in chat. Besides lack of subscription options there is virtually no customization available except my profile picture. I know it’s not easy giving the pc experience on an app but the iOS app should be equal in features to computer. If they do so I believe many of the user base would prefer viewing from mobile.
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.
I love this app but...
by JudeMan123 on 2020/01/21 20:14
Let me get this out of the way: almost all the problems with twitch are erased on a computer. Whether on the site or on the app, on a computer everything works perfectly. However, on the phone it lacks a lot of what it needs. You can’t subscribe with twitch prime for some reason, and it’s much harder to navigate on mobile than on pc. The other problems are the sub tokens they added and buying bits. Why did they add sub tokens? They’re just kind of stupid, why would I buy sub tokens before instead of just subbing to who I want? The last problem is bits. The price of bits makes no sense. Ive been told before it’s about a cent per bit, but then why is it seven dollars for 500 bits? That’s way more than the tax should be, and my only explanation is that twitch gets a little bit too greedy between the viewers and the streamers and tacks on unfair prices, making it harder for viewers to support streamers. Other than that, incredible app, I love watching streamers and talking to the twitch community that you can surround yourself with, it’s really incredible
Close to perfect
by Amazon Visa on 2019/09/20 01:56
If your into finds my quality content creators especially gaming Twitch is the place to be. The only thing that’s always driven me crazy to the point I almost gave only 4 stars is all the QUALITY broadcasters that are buried in such a saturated market. You must sift through hundreds to find a few hidden gems. “Partner” streams or “Featured” channels have put in the grind and deserve it but some of these other upstarts have no prayer to cut through the noise. With that said the majority of people sitting through directories do not take the time to sift to the streams at the bottom with little to no views. I find that to be the Consoles (XBOX & PS4) fault for making it so ez for any toxic 12 year old with a console can connect and upload toxic trash. So considering at the end of the day it’s not all on Twitch? I went ahead with 5 stars for the app. good for tips, & tricks for any gamer and other IRL streams as Well.
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.
Feedback
by TheRealRawD on 2019/11/26 21:34
Needs improvement; Twitch could certainly use some new and fresh ideas in terms of viewers/viewing capabilities, native communication is basic at best yet struggles with latency throughout the app. When asked, the initial response given was from long time users of Twitch, which was great! others not so much mentioning several technical problems from namely the app in and of itself with a few other hiccups here and there as expected however Twitch in it’s entirety is a brilliant platform as well as a great way to showcase any and all of your talents if you will. Continually Twitch will keep providing us with UI glitches more often than not currently there is no way suggest anything aside from writing a long neutral review about said inability, currently there is no way (that I am aware of) to exit a video you’re streaming without closing the app one would think of this to taken care of already and maybe it is or their working on it, if not then the solution is right here, all of which could be provided at a small nominal fee 😉😏
Unfair, favors certain streamers, no communication.
by qidrjvf on 2020/09/27 05:44
Although a good idea, the people running it ruin the app. Twitch has been known for favoring some streamers over others. There has been many instances when streamers were NOT banned for inappropriate behavior, such as violence, nudity, sexually suggestive behavior, animal cruelty, and more. All of which were girls. The way the app works is that if your an attractive female Twitch streamer, you don’t have to follow almost any guidelines. Many streamers such as Alinity (fed Vodka to her cat) have done terrible things that Twitch moderators refuse to ban her for. Male streamers can be banned PERMANENTLY for showing your body in a tank top. While females can do the same thing and not even get a slap on the wrist. I’ve seen female streamers with dedicated cameras for their butts and chests, which would obviously pass off as sexually suggestive content right? Wrong. Only if a female does it. Many of my favorite streamers were banned for no reason at all or a reason that was not stated by Twitch staff. Twitch bans streamers without telling them at times over something that may not have even happened. I won’t get into all of that for the sake of more people reading this.
This must be out sourced to people who never used apps
by Barbblerelf on 2018/12/14 15:38
I love how I can sync accounts like twitch to my discord. That’s how you get into sub only discord’s and this app makes it so easy! Oh wait no it doesn’t. You can log into your twitch but it won’t show you ANY DISCORD CHANNELS. ok fine. I’ll log in online. Sorry no login screen on the home page of discord while on mobile. Fine I’ll dig in even more and find the most hard to find link online to log in. Now I need to spend 30 minutes clicking buses on a “I’m not a bot” window more times than it takes to log into a major bank account or credit report monitor. Awesome, now I should be logged in right? Nope. An error saying you’re on the wrong type of discord. Why do I need to log into a computer to check or join “connections” discord’s. Has no one in the company ever been a human. It’s insane. Use the app. More than just once. Try things normal people want to do. Fix the website. Realize mobile browsers aren’t flip phones anymore and give actual full features on the site instead of less than the app even gives. If discord didn’t have a monopoly I’d wonder how the hell theyre still in business
Needs polish
by lalaleman on 2020/01/20 06:18
I love having twitch on my phone, but in its current state, mobile twitch is strictly worse than twitch on PC. There are lots of annoying bugs and quirks that all culminate in making it really annoying to use. For some reason, there is always a delay between the stream and chat that doesn’t appear on PC. In a recent update they made it so your phone itself has to be in dark mode to make twitch dark mode too, instead of just letting you toggle it from settings. This makes it really annoying when you want to switch from one app to another and keep turning dark mode on and off. Also, sometimes when I’m using twitch in light mode, it will magically toggle onto dark mode when I turn my phone sideways and then go back to light mode when I turn it right side up. Another major problem is that you can’t go to a streamers channel while they are live, so if you want to unfollow them or turn off notifications you are forced to watch an ad every time. If twitch mobile actually worked properly then I would give it a 5 star review.
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.
Missing Key Functionality
by Krahnin on 2018/06/27 16:07
So, no issue with streaming performance, but either A) there is a LOT missing from the app, or B) it’s super un-intuitive and these things are impossible to find. Missing features include: - The ability to subscribe to a channel via mobile. - The ability to see existing subscriptions and when they expire. - The ability to change your profile picture. - The ability to easily get to a channel’s home page if they are live. (I am forced to go into the live video, often causing blaring audio even when my phone is silenced, and then have to poke around to find a way to get to the channel’s home screen and THEN I have to terminate the still playing video). - A means to set subscriptions to auto-renew. (Unable to find this on the web version either - maybe just a missing feature?). All in all, forcing me to log into the site severely inhibits the app’s on the fly functionality. I’d think these item would be a priority as the easier it is to manage things, the more likely people are to download/open the app. While not a huge amount of competition in this market, it just takes one competitor doing it better to start stealing people away. If these features are missing, I’d recommend adding them. If they are just hard to find, I’d recommend either re-thinking the layout or adding an overlay tutorial that walks through functionality for users. Something that launches initially for brand new users and can be launched at will for people needing a refresher.
What is going on at Twitch HQ?
by Cored on 2019/09/14 19:35
I’ve used the twitch iOS app primarily on an iPad. Each successive update seems to make it worse and worse. I tend to minimize twitch into a window while I work with other apps. In the past, this wasn’t a problem, the stream would keep playing and required minimal attention from me. Today, September 2019, not so much. The windowed mode of twitch on an iPad frequently becomes unresponsive, such that I need to completely close out the app and restart it. If ads play in windowed mode, I lose the window and have to re-open the stream I had open. A year or so ago, this wasn’t a problem. I could leave a twitch window running all day on my iPad without it crapping out within 30 minutes. Now, I frequently have to re-launch the app when it ‘breaks’. Unsurprisingly, when it breaks, I get to watch ads again. Please go back to the drawing board on this app. Go back two years, find what made it work so well, and implement it now. Today’s iOS twitch app is just a pile of s*it compared to how good it used to be.
Twitch prime running ads
by Miezejeski on 2018/10/24 02:24
I used to get so many hours of enjoyment out of this app as a twitch prime member. I could channel surf with ease and go back and forth between all of my favorite streamers. I loved the freedom of being able to watch any streamer I wanted for 30 second or 30 minutes. Now that they have introduced ads to twitch prime members, it makes this app almost unusable. To watch a 30 second ad almost every time I switch channels completely ruins the experience for me. I literally hesitate to open the app every time I want to watch one of my favorite streamers. I previously used this app for multiple hours a day and since the change I have only used it maybe 2-3 times. There needs to be an premium option to remove ads! Subscribing to individual channels doesn’t help. What I liked about twitch was the ability to watch more than a dozen streamers in a 30 minute watch session, freely surfing between channels. Please do something about this!! I want to use twitch again without ads! I would pay a similar price to what I pay for a Netflix or Sirius radio subscription to watch ad free.
Not bad app but need a social media options for about page on the application
by oddur93 on 2020/06/09 13:17
That will be very good if I can change the user name directly from the application please set that option for further updates Hi guys that will be very good if that will be a option to add a Social Media links directly from the application because on a website is ver frustrating or I will say difficult please put these helpful options in the application for further assistance with Twitch broadcasters some of them are blind and some of them have a low vision so please put these helpful options for these people but not a bad app and also please put a donate button on next option after follow the streamer that will be very helpful to but I love this application and I will use it a lot thanks guys
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.
I am an avid twitch user but this app is very frustrating
by Fru1tilicious on 2019/04/18 02:59
I on average watch Twitch streamers for 2-3 hours a day and it is my main form of entertainment. So it saddens me that the iOS app is riddled with so many issues. First off there is an insane amount of delay (15-30sec) which makes it very difficult to be involved in chat. While on my other devices the delay is essentially unnoticeable or very minimal (5-10sec) when I’m on mobile chat becomes separate and I no longer get the full twitch experience where I can be immersed in a community of other viewers. Having the app play in the background is riddled with issues and is extremely finicky. I can barely get it to play at times when I’d just like to listen in the background. Then when I go back to the app it pauses for a while consistently and then suddenly starts after waiting. Many times when I click on a stream it will be frozen without the option to press the play button. The only way to fix this is to reload the stream and sometimes it requires completely relaunching the app. I love twitch and the app isn’t unusable by any means but it could really use improvements. What is really disappointing is that the iOS app has been around for so long yet we still deal with these bugs. Considering a large number of viewers are on mobile it is time some work was put in to polish the app and improve the experience of mobile users.
Not too shabby! Updated
by Obsidiangel1982 on 2020/08/16 11:38
I like the app and they've made some good improvements. The only improvement i can think of would be to allow for viewing when someone first starts streaming or has lower viewership...allowing mobile users to view would help increase the viewership. Edit added 8/2/14: there is an annoying bug that makes the streams freeze for a bit. It's not the internet because i've tested it multiple places. Annoying, but other than these two things the app is fantastic. UPDATE: Still a very good app. However, I’ve noticed that there are significantly more ads these days. An uninstallable number of ads. I’m sure if I pay/subscribe or use an adblocker I won’t have to worry about it, but it shouldn’t need to be that way. 6 ads is really way too many. That’s unreasonable. I came to the internet to get away from ads. Find a different way guys. Innovate!
Really bad experience
by EriiPlays1 on 2020/01/16 06:58
I was a partner, some guys put bots on my channel, exactly 15k bots that followed my channel, I report them, and I reported the toxic streamers that did it, but the staff is corrupted what they did was send my report to those channels, and type the report on their chat. I reported the staff and the channels again by the partner email and it was the same all corrupted the staff only listen to their friends and others streamers... really sad they just destroyed my career and everything and twitch did nothing they didn’t fired them they still working there but I can do nothing. 👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼 i removed all the accounts with the ignored feature but it doesn’t matter the staff is corrupted whenever I send an email the same staff or her/his friends just delete the email and just like that. I’m no rich but if I had money sure I’ll be suiting Twitch and the corrupted staff that violated my rights and the twitch ToS. I guess it is what it is I just have to start over on another platform after all my years of work. I hope the Spanish staff from Mexico get fired.
Still a great streaming service, but the app/login is annoying
by Raeusredeemed on 2020/08/09 18:22
I love Twitch and I’ve been using it for years, but recently have stopped using it entirely because the app doesn’t want to play nice. The required login is really annoying, especially because the chats are always toxic anyway and I really don’t care to participate. I honestly just want to watch the streams. Since my account was stolen by people overseas twice, the password requirements have become completely obnoxious and I feel like I need a password manager to keep one that complex straight. However, I don’t have the ability to even do that. When I try to reset my password on my phone, the link in the email immediately redirects to the app sign in and not to the password reset screen (there’s also no option to just continue in Safari). Thus I’m stuck in an infinite loop of having the “wrong“ credentials unless I actually use a computer to right it.
Customer Support
by Mitchell Gabriel on 2019/05/05 02:12
I recently had to delete my account because it was hacked repeatedly and the issue wasn't addressed quickly enough for any of my information to feel safe (i followed all preventative measures and my account was still accessed even without my two-step verification). Unfortunately, upon going to create a new account, i discovered i was trapped in my old account on the app, unable to do or watch anything, but also unable to sign out. I deleted and redownloaded the app several times to no avail. I'd love to continue using the app with a new account but it seems that i have to have an account to speak with customer support. This is both a cautionary review and last ditch effort to reach out and hopefully receive some assistance with this issue. The app is completely unusable to me at the moment which is a huge disappointment as i'm missing out on a lot of my favorite content creator's streams.
Good... mostly
by M. Rata on 2019/10/05 21:58
I do have one major gripe with Twitch for iOS. I typically watch Twitch on my TV using a game console, but I open the same stream on my iPhone because it's easier to type in chat with the phone's touch keyboard. Which works well as long as Twitch is running on the iPhone... except it doesn't. Whenever you pause your stream and then switch away from the app and then do something else on the phone, it's very likely that when you switch back to Twitch, the app will restart completely. This is really annoying because not only do you have to search for or dig for the stream again but often the app then makes you watch the 15-30 second pre-stream ad again. I don't know whether this is Twitch's fault or Apple's: I've observed it for at least a year while keeping up with the latest iOS software. Either way, please fix it!
Lack of Customizable Access
by WorfySmarf on 2018/01/05 18:12
The Twitch website gives you a lot of access towards your customization and profile editing. You can change your chat color, change your name and or capitalization, change your profile pic, etc. This app, however, doesn’t give you access to most of the offers the website has. It would be nice to be able to do certain things on the app instead of always having to rely on the website such as customizing your profile and being able to subscribe to channels by viewing them instead of having to use chat commands. Sometimes I want to support a streamer but I can’t because they do not have a set chat command. Overall, I’d appreciate it if the app would have more accessibility just like the website instead of it feeling like it’s taking away your access and ability.
Delay
by GetThisOffTheInternet on 2020/06/10 02:42
I like the app it’s very similar to the pc version. But a big problem I have is that there is so much of a delay. I was watching this Nhl streamer named Tougie24 and he was doing a draft. He wanted the viewers to pick. In the nhl game there is a 3 minuet time limit and I did not get to make my pick (the time ran out) because of the delay I would tell him to do something then it would take at least 30 seconds for me to see or for it to appear and in his chat. Another example Is when watching a stream and something cool happens it will be spoiled or revealed before you see it ruining the moment. Wether the rest of the chat is emoting or talking about it. I will always be the last person to see. This also makes having a conversation with the streamer difficult because he is waiting for 30 second to a minute to see a response because you see what he said so much later than it was actually said
Many missing features and bugs
by Geowa on 2020/08/20 01:41
Using this app for years now and there’s been very little improvement over those years. The app allows you to do basic functions such as watch a stream, or tip bits. However if you want to do other things such as tip and subscribe you won’t be able to do that in the app. You will have to go to a PC or request desktop mode from the safari browser. When you request desktop mode it tends to cause problems for your fighting with the app opening and then trying to get the desktop mode painful process. Missing subscribe function is the biggest issue I’d say. Could this be true to be missing for so many years it’s just incredible to me. It’s a basic function on twitch it’s been around for a long time and that’s how you can show support for your favorite stream, same with tipping that should be in there too for some reason it’s not.
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
Love the app, but there are a few bugs
by Jules Hes. on 2020/09/16 15:38
I’ve actually been really enjoying using twitch so far, but because I’m generally short on time I tend to not be able to watch entire streams. Good news is twitch records past broadcasts, but I’ve noticed that while watching past broadcasts there are some pretty frustrating bugs. For example, sometimes when watching a past broadcast and an ad pops up, after the ad break the broadcast will send you back to the beginning and you have to scrub through the video to find your place again, which can be annoying especially when watching longer streams. Also, the scrubbing is a bit buggy to, sometimes the bar acts like you pressed your finger in a different place. I really do enjoy using twitch, so I hope this bugs can be fixed.
Broken
by Pokemonfan131313 on 2020/10/24 03:50
I don’t know how this app has such high reviews. I’m just trying to use the app to watch past streams of some people I enjoy. Every time I pause the video and turn off my phone screen or switch to a different app it starts the video from the beginning, assuming it even brings up the video at all when I open the app again. When dealing with 3+ hour content, remembering your place is vital. I also can’t find a way to quit a video I started, just make it small and click on something else. (If there is a method, I haven’t found it with all my prodding and swiping). When I pause the video full screen, an overlay pops up that hides half the screen and makes it really easy to misclick something (For the 20th time, no I’m not trying to unfollow the person I’m watching, thanks), and also makes it hard to see the thing that I paused to look at. It’s ok (and actually better) to have some information and options outside of full screen mode.
I don’t have to find be a sub to find good gameplay.

I just stay for the comments. But I’d like to comment in on the good plays. Fuel the excitement and push for more people to test their limits. Browse filters. Alittle more console support as far as the Kinect and overlays, widgets control panel. Nothing’s perfect, just surprised a lot of what I expected hhasnt happened yet. This generations alittle behind, still hating and hurting. Won’t make your pain stop. If you want that, you have to get over yourself. We’re all humans. The Human race. Not racial, regional. If each person had one million, no one would struggle. Below one million, work, or invest correctly. Oh wait that’s right. the wrong three power system. Last one had it right but still fought amongst each other. Pitty. Hopefully we can prepare before the next round.
Freakin amazing but...

This is by far the best streaming service on the face of the earth. But there are some things that the pc version has that the mobile version doesnt. No 1. The ability to change your channel name. So i noticed after about a day prior to downloading this that you are unable to change your channel name. Now that isnt a problem for me but it may be for other people, as other users may not be able to access a pc or laptop. No 2. The ability to customize about me pages and channel banners: it’s basically the same reason. So twitch i really hope you see this and possibly make some changes but aside from that, twitch i a great streaming service and it will be for many years to come.

I was on heroin really bad. What helped me when I finally was able to get the guts to go through withdrawals, I watched Twitch. Twitch was there for me to talk to chat. Twitch was there for me to see positive content. Twitch has a much bigger impact in my drug recovery then I could ever get someone to understand. I love Twitch and I am so thankful it’s here, for free, for me to enjoy. I think it could have positive effect on people trying to get off drugs. I just don’t have a way to stream or I would make an account simply for just chatting. I would have my account be all about recovery off drugs. There is such a big need for someone to live stream to those affected by the drug epidemic. Thank you. Sincerely, Zachary Tumulty
Terrible Ui, and updates make the app worse
by Denali212 on 2019/10/18 16:03
navigating through the different broadcasts will give you a migraine, random channels you arent interested in with no viewers will be dropped in the top of your feed for no reason constantly. you cannot delete messages, and notifications will remain for years after youve “hidden” the messages theyre attatched to. on top of this the newer updates have fixed nothing but added the most annoying feature imagineable: autoplay on whatever is in the center of the screen, (meaning when you browse the app while watching a stream, there will ALWAYS be a second stream randomly autoplaying and overlapping your audio.) the app is lazily put together and the new features they add actively make the experience worse, with no settings menu to turn these annoying things off. whoever is in charge of design should seriously consider stepping down and letting someone who has the first idea of what theyre doing step in.
Great platform/app But Lack of Bug Fixes
by Mal Carrillo on 2020/09/09 19:17
I love twitch. A lot of a my favorite content creators are on here. But here’s the thing: Twitch is not properly working. Ever since they have allowed Live copyright claims, I cannot watch past streams that are have copyrighted music in them through certain devices. For example, twitch is not a featured app Samsung Smart TVs so when I AirPlay a past stream from my iPhone and it gives me the “Some portions of this stream have been muted due to copyright” warning. The advertisement will play but the stream won’t. I have reported the issue various times. No fix. I know twitch doesn’t have does best staff but, they could at least look into things like this for the love of people who can’t always catch a stream. 3 stars; cool and all but it little things like this that ruin it for working people, students, etc.
Great, just a few suggestions.
by Isssaad28 on 2020/09/08 22:37
Twitch is cool. Found out about it a few months ago and get to connect and watch people that I love. I just have a few suggestions. Dates and times for each stream and whisper. I don’t like going back to my favorite streamer and it saying “a month ago” or “two months ago” because then I don’t know what stream it is. The same for whispers. It doesn’t give you a date or time the message was sent so if someone asks when you sent the whisper it seems unprofessional to not know because it doesn’t tell you. The app I’ve noticed glitches a bit and when you go to watch previous streams it takes forever. Overall twitch is great and I like it a lot, I just think these suggestions would improve the layout and help people.
Good app but fix a few problems
by RaymondNoodles06 on 2020/08/31 21:55
It’s good and all on the mobile if ur on the go or ur computer dead but I always watch the PC version because compared to the computer 9.9/10 times the mobile version has more stream delay than PC twitch. Also how come you can’t get free bits on the mobile version anymore PC twitch still gets them further cementing why you should you PC twitch over mobile twitch. One last thing can we get different ad mixes because Ik ads are annoying but it’s good for the platform but I hate getting the same PSA ad everytime I refresh a streamers page (not saying the PSA’s aren’t important but how many times am I gonna have to listen to “Marijuana, Alcohol, Prescription drugs.”)
Not Recommended, 1/10
by james5373 on 2020/08/01 10:13
This platform fell through my expectations. Sometimes the platform fails to load videos and it’s extremely glitchy, I do not trust that want I watch is in real time with the streamer. I once wished to subscribe to a streamer I’m interested in but I had to pay through my parents, we attempted to purchase a sub token but failed due to apple not accepting twitch ,then when we switched payment method a glitch in system kept informing me “A request to buy sub token will be sent to your parents for approval” no notifications on my parent’s end what so ever, This is nonsense, This is 2020 not 2014, I expect such problem to not occur at all when relying on a platform this famous. ABSOLUTELY NOT RECOMMEND if you wanted a platform with proper functionality and good quality
Great but I guess screw the IOS Users

-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
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.
Loud ads and audio doesn’t play in background
by The Only Elroi on 2018/10/16 12:39
This app has been fantastic. I’ve loved using it as the interface is clean and runs well. Streams are smooth and chat runs without hiccups. However, the end of Twitch Prime being ad-free has changed the experience. The advertisements are way too loud, which means Twitch is no longer good for ASMR viewers and people who like to use this while falling asleep. Another major issue is that when closing the app to allow the stream audio to play in the background, the stream now either stops or gets choppy, rendering the function unusable right now. This issue needs to be fixed. Between the loud advertisements and background audio issues, I haven’t used Twitch app in a while. That’s a shame, because this is an amazing platform and the app has been solid.
Terrible for streamer
by Rawrzness on 2018/08/30 16:36
There are false icons that lead you to believe you can view analytics, the “graph” icon that pops up on the top right for “manage stream” only allows you to change the title and category of your games... that’s all. This app seems perfect for community. And getting to watch streamers, but a nightmare if you’re trying to do any upkeep or view statistics while you’re away from a pc. I can’t even click on the followers displayed in order to see who’s followed. If it’s going to be this over simplified mess make a separate app for people who stream or do a better job of integrating things from the desktop version into the app. I can’t even go on the site on mobile and hit “view desktop mode” because it will instantly open my app. If I have to go to desktop mode with the app uninstalled anyway to view the things I need why do I even have the app? 🤔
No filter for most viewed anything
by McFlyMan007 on 2018/11/10 17:44
Imagine you’re browsing twitch’s front page for the game you want, it’ll be there, but there won’t be any chance those games will be in order of how popular they are. Say you find your favorite game and you want to see who the top streamers are, you’ll have to scroll and scroll past the lowest in popularity streams to find the top three you were looking for. However, with all that being said, there’s the option to filter which type of media you’re looking for: Live-streams, clips, and videos. Why? Hold that question for this next one. Not only can you filter media, you can filter by which stream labels the streamers have attached to their stream! Looking for a non-English speaker in a mostly English web? You’d better hope they labeled their stream with that language to have any chance of finding them.
This app runs terrible
by Vnkhjjhkkjhhbjkkhbj on 2020/07/26 15:30
