Bug issue 1/5
When it works it's great but it's so frustrating when it doesn't. Can't currently switch which tv receiver for viewing so it only works in 1 of the 3tv rooms
Crashes all the time. 1/5
Was working well for awhile then all of a sudden when j try to switch from my living room hopper to my bedroom Joey. The pos crashes. Did a hard reset, deleted, re-downloaded, and connected all over again. Didn't help.
Paul h 1/5
I USED to like this app.
This app is pure garbage now. Over half the time it doesn’t even open it just crashes as soon as you open it and you might want to change the name from dish anywhere to dish nowhere because it never works. I have tired uninstalling it and reinstalling it I have made sure it’s fully updated and I have great connection but it doesn’t matter what I do it’s still about as good as used bath water.
In says to check and see if I’m connected to internet when I obviously am and getting 30 mbps...
Never works 1/5
There is always a problem with this app, it’s rare that it works either the app or the receiver is junk!!!!
App just blows up 1/5
This app used to work great up until about a few months ago. Now I open the app and it just closes. I’ve removed the app and re-downloaded with no luck. My wife’s phone and my iPad have the same problem. Please fix.
Ever since I updated my app I have not been able to use the remote for my Joey. Every time I select the Joey, it kicks me out of the app.
The app constantly crashes and is not useful.
Remote switch issues 4/5
Hey love be my dish but recently when I’m using the app try to switch from the main hopper to a Joey the app crashes. Is there a fix for this.
The app crashes every time I select a hopper from the remote part of the app. I complained about it about 6 weeks ago but it doesn’t appear that it is a priority to get fixed.
Love the app 4/5
It has a few glitches but it's better than the competition!!!!
Used to be okay... 2/5
Shows from DVR do not always transfer over onto Dish App and you can't select a Joey receiver in the App. Clicking to select a Joey receiver kicks you out of the app.
Everytime I try to choose a different room it closes the App.
What happened to AO mode in background? 2/5
I used the prior version of this app daily in AO (audio only) mode running in the background. The latest version requires the app stay open in foreground. As soon as you close app or turn off phone the audio stops. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE BRING BACK BACKGROUND AO MODE.
If you do I’ll rate it 5 stars!
Lack of controls 1/5
Can't watch Monday Night Football in english. Online help does not address this issue. Where is the SAP button?? Bummer.
God awful app 1/5
Never syncs correctly with my hopper system. Doesn’t show timers correctly; when trying to make some changes your lucky if it saves your changes. The app also has a tv remote on it cool actually not cause any time you try to change to that room the app crashes. Not to mention the “joeys” are god awful slow as well which is why I try to use the remote on my phone to so many bugs and don’t want to waste my life trying to explain them all when a simple debugging before you release the app would due
This app is bad, the ui is okay, it could be smoother but overall the app is trash when I watch a show it is often laggy. another issue is with the commercials, the commercials play if you try to rewind around 5+ minutes, which I mean, okay but they also sometimes play in the middle of your show those are 2 problems but they are quite a nuisance in your viewing experience, these are also only problems that I found you could probaly read other reviews and see the other problems.
App Crashing 1/5
By Sad Sox Fan
Been using Dish Anywhere for a long time. Now can only control the Hopper. If I try any other Joey app crashes. What's the deal, is there s fix.
I can not get an answer on how to or when this will be fixed.
Please advise or update the app to fix.
Patience is wearing thin.
Worst App Ever!! 1/5
Lots and lots of glitches. Not user friendly. And don’t get me started on how stupid the watch anywhere feature is. Terrible, just terrible.
Hey developer, quit making excuses for every time you get a bad comment about how crappy your app is and actually fix it. Look at how many one stars the app has received, it means you’re doing a crappy job, do better and quit making excuses.
My recommendation to everyone, go back to DirectTV.
Best quality 5/5
Had Dish for years. Always improving features and quality. Good customer service and technical service.
Wonderful App 5/5
Love it! Great UI.
The app crashes every time I try to change the TV remote to a different DVR or Joey on my home network. iPhone 7 Plus running iOS 11.0.2. I have closed out of the app, restarted my phone, and also have deleted and re-downloaded the app and it still will not work.
App Problem 2/5
After the recent update, the app crashes when I try to select a tv to control.
Used to work, now can’t connect to Joey devices. 1/5
I’m unable to connect to a Joey device in my home as I had been before. It always crashes whenever I try to connect to a Joey device vs my Hopper device on my home network. Fix this app ASAP!
Can't watch the videos as they air?? 1/5
I've been trying to watch the newest episode of RIVERDALE season 2 and I can't 🙄🙄🙄🙄
Doesn’t work 1/5
Every time I try to use the app to control the tv and I try to switch it from the main tv to a different tv the app goes to a black screen and closes. I’ve uninstalled and reinstalled multiple times and nothing. It’s been doing this for months and it’s getting kinda ridiculous. What’s the point of having an app if it’s not gonna Work??
Works Great 5/5
App works great, I like the option of not going through other apps to watch my shows... I had DTV and Spector and Dish by far is superior.
App crashes 1/5
App crashes constantly. Need a serious update
Have to restart video if switching between apps 1/5
By Tired of bad SW
Whom ever designed the Dish app clearly does not use their phone for any other purpose than watching dish.
If you ever use the home button while watching a DVR’d program, the phone switches context as it’s supposed to. But when you switch back to dish app, it forces you to start the entire app over again and find your program then restart it, then hope you can find where you left off.
Incredibly poor user design dish. Should be fixed. Such a simple problem that really make people hate the app.
App crashes on me when I select TV option and click on Joey
Pretty much useless 1/5
Tried using it as a remote and it won’t even let me switch receivers.
Glitchy, needs to catch up to competition 1/5
By Roz Smiley
This App is incredibly glitchy. The commercials randomly play during videos, not at the designated commercial times. The commercials even cut each other off randomly.
If you try to change brightness or other minor things while watching a program, the video you are watching closes, the app tests to the home screen instead of pausing and you have to start from scratch to find it. There's no "recently watched" section.
The sports section is poorly laid out. It would be better if there were team logos instead of a generic sports picture.
The app seems to not communicate with the receivers at all.
Search section is decent - especially compared to the receiver box which is terrible for searching and it is almost impossible to find what's "on demand".
App needs improvements 1/5
We love our dish network but this app is minimally helpful at best.
The connection to the hopper is not an issue, but any attempt to record or view programming through the app results in a 404 error and “update the app” instructions. Numerous updates, uninstalls/reinstalls, etc have not corrected the issues. Needs a rework for sure
Needs redesign and Apple TV support 1/5
This app needs to be updated to support newer iPhone with larger displays. The iPhone 6 and 6 Plus have been out for over 3 years now. Also please release an Apple TV version of this app. I’m about ready to dump my Dish subscription, it’s 2017 but the product seems to be stuck in 2011.
By Hannah todd
Each time I attempt to "select TV" other than the hopper, the app force closes. Ugh! So aggravating!
App not working when switching to different room 5/5
By The keys to success
I love this app. It’s very convenient for me while I travel !!!! Thank you for making my life awesome!!!
dish network has had great prices forever and I feel they have the best customer service as well, dish anywhere app is always reliable and I can watch in anytime! thanks Dish!
App won't open, period. I have LTE service on my phone, so no reason why it shouldn't work.
Dish anywhere app 1/5
We have had dish for 3 years now. Love the packages best hdtv but we’re not talking about our tv service itself though. It’s the dish anywhere app. We do like it because we can control our two year olds tv in the middle of the night from our bedroom so she won’t cry for us to get her out. But recently my app has failed in working properly on the Joey when I try to switch from hopper to Joey it closes out my app. But works properly on my hopper. I have extremely good WiFi connection to both.
Constantly get messages “error 404 please upgrade to the latest app” 1/5
I have everything at the latest version and running iOS 11. I even tried deleting and reinstalling...but no love so it is useless to me.
Always closes out.... 2/5
This app would be less frustrating if it didn't close out on its own every single time I use it.
Excellent service!! Love it
Time to cancel and go Direc 1/5
This app is not even support the features of the dish Hopper or support the Joey at all it only crashes every time you try to view Any of the attached Joeys on the system it would be nice if they can figure out what’s going on before I do cancel but I seriously doubt it same results on iPhone and iPad versions poorly written software not to say that the firmware in the boxes is much better it’s very slow and buggy
The app is useless 1/5
I just recently downloaded the app to my iPhone. No only can you do NOTHING on your phone because it will exit you out of the video, but Every Single Time something comes up on my phone it takes me back to the Dish home page. In the middle of watching a show. Low battery notification? Dish Home page. Check brightness from pull up control center? Dish Home page. Pull down text to respond without exiting the app? Dish Home page.
By family man of 3
Don’t let the low star rating throw you off. I have use this app many times to watch and record shows and it had worked every time. As long as you have a good cell signal them you should be good to go!!! Thanks Dish!!!
One of my favorite apps !💯🔥🔥
No chromecast support 2/5
Over all app is fine but it’s useless without support for chromecast.
I love it 5/5
