There we go... 1/5
Apple at its best.. write crappy code and censor the people who complain about it. This app is an insult to quality software. It does not work properly, and silencing the people who say it is not going to make you better coders. Some of the problems remained for SEVERAL YEARS in a row (like the pb with 2 videos playing at the same time) ... this is a disgrace.
Still not support iPhone X 2/5
It’s been more than a week since iPhone X launch day, but this WWDC app is still compiled by Xcode 8, not full screen on iPhone X. Ironically, Apple uses WWDC app as an example to teach iOS developers how to program for iPhone X. I believe it’s unacceptable for Apple to have apps not adapting to their flagship product.

Filtering downloaded does not work 1/5
By Oleg Naumenko
Filtering to only see what has been downoladed gives no result
By Little dream world
I usually very love everything from Apple, but now I will change my mind, because I am so upset every time everything after the new IOS update, there a lot of the apps and information are gone, also not working properly as same as before, the Apple development is making changes a lot, will not recommend people to buy apple products anymore
Works great for WWDC VDOs re-watch 5/5
As an app that collects all the WWDC VDOs in one place, with options to search, filter out VDOs and download for offline viewing, this app provides a great experience for me to re-watch and learn materials from WWDC from my iPad. Previously, to get WWDC VDOs on my iPad, I’d have to download them on Mac and then sync via iTunes.
Excellent apps which can do with some improvements 4/5
App is well-designed and highly functional. Just a bit of feedback for improvements:
- Filtering downloaded videos only does not work
- Tracking the progress of multiple videos is very difficult. No central view for seeing the progress. Considering that the downloads are pretty big, there should be a speed indicator and time remaining label to help us understand and diagnose our own network if the speed is not upto par. (we are devs, this does not need to be hidden away from us).
- While using the app on a slow-ish network, I saw the app having trouble showing all the thumbnail icons of the videos. So I guess it needs better caching of those thumbnails.
Excellent implementation 5/5
This app exemplifies iOS best practices.
The user is able to multitask while still enjoying the video content. This is a feature missing from many of my favorite video apps.
E.g. Video continues to play via airplay even after pressing home button, allowing me to take notes for example while still watching the video.
Also, I am able to put the display to sleep which allows me to save battery, while still playing video.
Awesome app 5/5
Nice job with the home 🏡 pod apple 🍎💻⌚️📱📲💻⌨️🖥🔌🔋📡
Really needs utility affordances 2/5
By Chris Pt
This is a LOT of content. Most modern video-and audio-consumption apps have playback speed controls which are essential for something like this. In a similar vein, since the info here can be a little dense, it's important to be able to scroll forward and backwards in the video. Since the scrubber doesn't tell you which timestamp you've scrolled to, this is a painfully slow and frustrating operation in this app: you need to try to judge how many scrubber pixels equals how many seconds of video, and even when you think you have it, releasing your finger from the scrubber causes it to jump somewhere else.
WWDC presentations are some of the most important documentation the community relies on: they elucidate the documentation and sometimes even contain information not available or not at all clear from the docs. Crafting this tool around that crucial need, and around the fact that this is reference material, would certainly pay off in terms of the quality of the app ecosystem.
Please support download during only wifi connection. 1/5
It've started downloading when it's connected at the Wifi. Then moving out without wifi, it use all of my cellphone data with watching already downloaded contents. It's terrible. The cellular company already charged over $100. I had to join the other data plan.
Please support a option to control download wifi only.
No floating video windows? 4/5
It's incredible to have so much valuable data organized so well in one app, thank you APPLE!
This is the standard by which other companies should hold their conference libraries to. They provide great labeling, easy accessibility and wonderfully direct, short and sweet presentations.
I'm able to switch WWDC to the background while it's audio continues to play, allowing me to take care of work and enjoy the presentations at the same time. Brilliant. Plain and simple.
Many companies throw together conference video library navigation interfaces for the web or apps, without showing much thought to the value of what the material is and how it will be accessed. Apple remains beyond reproach on this.
My only request would be a floating video window.
I've been listening to the presentations for the last two weeks at work nonstop. Thank you.
No slides 3/5
Thanks for letting us download the videos. But I wish you had a download link for the slides the way you do on the wwdc site.
This is abreast way to get updated in the apple world and recap on the latest technology from APPLE!!!!!! Highly Suggested
Great way to experience conference virtually 5/5
By My Night Sight
This app has been getting better each year, and having the ability to download conference sessions to my device and take them with me is fantastic.
1) In the "Favorites" view of Videos, group by year. While it is nice to see my favorites from previous years, being able to distinguish the current set would be helpful
2) Bring back closed captions. May not be ready yet, but I miss them when I can't turn up the audio.
Please add skip fwd/back 10 seconds! 4/5
There are dozens of times when I missed something and need to skip back or forward just a bit to take another look at the code or to search for a particular part of a video. This is probably the only app where I've needed these skips while watching video more than any other video app! Other than that, the app is getting better, keep up the good work.
By Mardy Tardy
I love this app. I get all the news I missed! All the people below that say needs ios 10.3 or iCloud stuff or blah blah blah, are dumb. This app is amazing. I will rate all apple apps 5 star even if there are bugs, which there are non in this one. I LOVE THIS APP!
No support for iOS 9 1/5
Doesn't work on IOS 9 devices.
No content available on older devices 1/5
Version 6 of this app requires iOS 10 which is not available for any of my iDevices. The new WWDC 2017 content is not available in the previous version of the WWDC app that runs on my devices. **UPDATE:** A few days after writing this review, Apple completely disabled access to all content from previous years as well. So the previous version of the app still running on my devices no longer has access to any content at all and the current version of the app doesn't run on any of my devices. I don't understand that decision at all. One day, I had access to all content from previous years. The next day, without any changes to the apps running on my devices, I didn't have access to any content at all.
Filled up my storage 1/5
After trying to download 10 videos, my storage filled up 10GB but impossible to play the videos, I deleted the app and my storage is still full, even after a reboot.
Bugs everywhere 1/5
If you get to playing a live stream too early the app crashes
Only some videos will download
Downloaded videos will not play
Requires IOS 10 1/5
I was unable to watch the new keynote so I downloaded this app to find out that it does not work on iOS 9.
Like the content, but.... 2/5
Think the content is great, and ability to watch videos, set favorites. One infuriating bug or feature is the auto scroll on the schedule. Every time I favorite a session, it auto scrolls to a previously selected session forcing me to scroll back down to the times I was trying to look at.
Cant download videos 1/5
Download icon shows in list view, but doesn't work.
iOS 10.3 required 1/5
Please support devices that aren't on the latest minor version yet.
Worst Apple App ever!! 1/5
Cloud icon to download is visible, however not able to download the content. Cells are not getting refreshed, so cloud icon is always visible after scrolling down then up.
Other UI issues as well. Come on Apple. Developers expect more from you guys!
Thank You 3/5
I haven't been able to go to WWDC for the past 2 years, but now I'm so happy to be able to watch the videos from the sessions right away. This makes it so nice for developers who can't make it to the conference. Much appreciated Apple!
UPDATE: This year the app crashes whenever I try to view a live session. I'm very disappointed by this. ☹️
YET ANOTHER UPDATE: The 2017 videos are not being added to the app as quickly as the 2016 videos were added last year. I feel like this WWDC app and experience for those developers not able to attend the conference in person is a step backwards from the year before.
Update wiped all data but fixed 5/5
Worked until session names changed after keynote. Now every screen is blank. Update: delete, hard reset and reinstall fixed.
Crashes constantly 1/5
I tapped on the state of the union in the calendar, tapped on watch, and the app crashed.
I tried to download the video. The app crashed.
Same for the keynote.
Made by Apple? 3/5
Surprised this was made by Apple. Nice clean design but low quality video, and I'm using an iPhone 6S Plus!
App just crashes 1/5
Just crashes when playing the live streams.
When watching a live video, app crashes 3/5
By Christopher Hillman
I wanted to see The Platform State of the Union, and when it went live, I tapped on the event in the schedule and when I tapped watch live, the app crashed, therefore unable to watch the event. However, while watching on-demand videos from previous events, there is no problem.
Beautiful layout and pleasant interactions 5/5
By Don Swet
Good update overall, but you can no longer cancel downloads until they've completed. 😓
This is pretty much beyond HATERSHAQ'S experience. 5/5
HATERSHAQ does not travel for the first time. But HATERSHAQ is willing to see what kind of presentation everyone has got.
By UNTED STATES MAN
I want go to WWDC too
It's cute!!! 4/5
I love the app for so many reasons!! I love the cute little images you could send to your friend!! I wish they could add more but I could understand why they didn't. Knowing that it's not just used for the images and it's a free app. A lot people are saying that they should have add Spanish phrase. That doesn't really brother me through. Maybe it's because I don't have many friends or family that speak that. And it is an apple app. Apple is American and American speaks mostly English. Although they could have add one or two. Mostly because American doesn't really have one language that they speak and it would help people who can't speak it. Anyway, I love the app and it's cute to send the images
I'm so excited!!!! 5/5
I can't wait see what Apple has made for us. Great app, I love that it's Red themed
Apple is Passion WWDC 2017 Here We Go! 5/5
By Michael Sandovski
Thank you Apple for this amazing event that I know for sure the Apple team will deliver.
Apple Team. You are awesome.
Tim Cook. You are awesome.
Apple. You are awesome.
That's my poem to WWDC 2017. Enjoy the show!
Needs PDF Access 4/5
Would be nice to have PDFs for sessions
Great update to an awesome resource 5/5
I love the new design, and I can't wait to see what WWDC 2017 has in store!
Downloads Don't Work 1/5
The download feature throws an error every time saying that I don't have permission to "2016". Constantly signs itself out. App only gets attention the month before WWDC and then apple puts it on the back burner.
Works perfectly 5/5
I'm not sure what the negative reviews are about (Apple haters) but it works great. I click the video and after about 20 seconds it plays. I'm guessing that's to load some kind of buffer but not a big deal. Also has WWDC schedule complete with dates, times, and locations.
Great way to watch videos on AppleTV! 5/5
Videos show up again!
Doesn't recognize I'm Apple Developer 1/5
Says favorites only available to registered Apple developers. Well I am. And prior downloads are taking up space but I can't view them.
I've deleted the app in hope it will work, but hell, isn't this an Apple app that should work? And these guys are planning on instructing others? I think there should be a session called How not to build an app, as we did with WWDC.
I deleted, and reinstalled and works. Now I have to download all again
Dear Apple developer please learn about migrations and how to deal with version upgrades. I can't believe people pay Apple for training when they build crappy apps themselves
Problems downloading 1/5
The App wouldn't delete, wouldn't download and continued to have problems. Ended up never downloading and just sitting there indefinitely loading because I couldn't delete it
Video scrubbing is so bad that it is rage-inducing. The app does not accurately remember what videos you have watched, what videos you have finished, and what videos you are in the middle of.
Update: video scrubbing is the F***ING WORST. Nothing has improved. It is so INCREDIBLY difficult and frustrating.
PAUSING DOWNLOAD SOMETIMES RESETS DOWNLOAD TO 0%!

No videos!! 1/5

Urgent fix please!
Remove downloaded video is not working 2/5
Besides the broken remove downloaded video function, there needs to be a filter for showing downloaded videos.
