Lost favorites with update 2/5
Seems that they removed all WWDC videos from 2015. Cannot search to find any of them. And more importantly, lost my previously favorited 2015 session videos. Why would an app ever delete user data?
Update: while some of the 2015 videos are now back, some are still missing. For example, Protocol Oriented Design. What gives?
Issue fixed quickly, good app 4/5
Apple seems to have fixed the brief issue with content not loading. This is a pretty good app and it serves as an easy way to view WWDC videos on the go.
Does not allow registration of developer account; emplty of all data; useless
ipad app broken as of july 3 2020 1/5
nothing loads, previously downloaded videos dont show up.
I didn’t work at all 1/5
By Jacobrho 2006
It didn’t work at all
Unable to copy video links to clipboard 3/5
A good resource for WWDC content, but sharing videos was was more challenging than it should be. I ended up copying the video to the Notes app and then sharing the link with others.
Will crash every time I click on “platform state of the union”on my iPhone 5s. It is pretty disappointing. Videos on developer website not very compatible with my non-apple tablets(also disappointing in 2020), but I wasn't expecting this level of incompatibility with an Apple device!!
Crashes when opened 1/5
Won't open and immetiately crashes on 16" MBP
By Guykaro Metta
It immediately crashes on my ipad pro 1 with ios 10! I cant believe it! What happened to quality control?
Crashes repeatedly on my iPad 1/5
I wanted to like this iPad version, but I have not been able to watch a single WWDC 2020 session! The app crashes as soon as I attempt to view a video, attend a developer session, anything. I am certain that Apple will fix these bugs next year. They can hire me to fix maintain this app correctly! This WWDC app does work from my MacBook Pro.
Still crashes after update 1/5
I wrote a review about how it crashes immediately about 2-3 days ago. Well after the most recent update it still crashes immediately after launching. Good job Apple.
why O why ... 1/5
how come it seems the worst of the worst apple devs are assigned to this app?!?! year after year this thing is buggy (like when 2 videos could play at the same time, or when it is incapable of keeping in sync between multiple devices ... seriously .. dont you have several ipads to test that?!?!), illogically designed (what kind of moronic idea is it to put the 'mark as played' inside the share sheet?!?!), or having performance issues.
GET SOME REAL DEVELOPERS TO DO THIS THING... and if you dont like the way I am saying this, then imagine that I like even less the way you have been DOING THIS FOR MANY YEARS
Crashes continuously on 12.4
Buggy video playback 2/5
Bug: When playing videos at 1.25 or 1.5 speed and pausing. The state of the playback speed is lost.
Misses the mark 1/5
By A1 Dev
The app has so much white space that it is difficult to find anything. No dates and times on the WWDC videos. etc. I can't really see the value.
Although the app has modern UI design, it is still a poor user experience from Apple. I think Apple has lost its way in UI design.
wont send my information when trying to enroll in the developer program 2/5
keeps saying connection error every time I scan my drivers license, when my internet is working perfectly fine, i even tried switching to data and the problem is still there
old tired eyes 1/5
There is no way how to zoom fonts in this app.
Nowadays? Would you believe that?
Pretty Good 4/5
Overall, it's pretty good. Would be nice to see sessions broken down by day though.
OK. Fixed synch favorites 4/5
Originally was syncing my favorites but latest update seems to be ok on that.
Good app, good example of standard UI guidelines and components but unimaginative.
Does its job well.
new icon is hideous 1/5
By This guy said the above/below
Why so blurry? 2/5
For an app aimed at developers, this falls surprisingly short. The text and icons are blurry, there is a ton of whitespace, the video player doesn't support full screen, and there doesn't seem to be a way to refresh the content without navigating away and then back to the page. Even as I did this yesterday for the Keynote and Platforms State of the Union, the video still didn't show as available for a few minutes after I was able to start viewing it on the web. What a missed opportunity to showcase some of the great features of Catalyst and other Apple Development technologies.
Doesn’t run on MacOS versions that support 32-bit apps 2/5
By Flash Sheridan
This doesn’t run on MacOS versions that support 32-bit apps.
Text is too small and not accessible 3/5
Apple is the leading proponent of accessibility for everyone. So why does the Developer app fix the font size of all text to a tiny size that someone with older eyes cannot read at all, without any (obvious) way to increase it? I've got a larger monitor for a reason -- not to fill it with white space.
Too much like iOS 2/5
By Kenai Ulfr
This really looks like an iOS app that was slopily compiled into a MacOS app. I know that's the future design, but the whole design seems too much like iOS now.
the new logo 5/5
By Bakalari jsou €@#$
I moved the app to the 2nd page just to not look at the new ugly logo, the old one was aesthetically pleasing
Same old problems 1/5
Spent the whole afternoon going through the video catalogue and tracks and favoriting what I wanted to watch, starting tomorrow. Came back tonight to a favorites list replaced with one from months ago.
Not even on the beta yet. Thanks.
Complete failure. Favoriting does not work. 1/5
I wrote a very long detailed two star review, (which has apparently vanished without a trace), but I had to come back because two stars turned out to be a wildly optimistic rating for this terribly app.
Is it ugly? Yes. Does it waste space? Yes. Does it force you into awkward and inneficient modalities of navigation and interaction? Yes. But at least the basic functionality works, right?
I just gritted my teeth and devoted a half hour to navigating the bizarre disorganized tree of WWDC20 videos to favorite the ones I want to watch. It was a frustrating hassle, but now I should have them all in one place, right?
When I go to the favorites section? Exactly one WWDC20 video is there. On my phone? None of them. Not one.
If my app were this bad it would've been rejected by App Review.
Crashes constantly on iOS 12.4 3/5
Crashes constantly on iOS 12.4. It crashed and kept crashing upon starting. I had to reinstall the app to get it working again and it crashes all the time while using it. I don’t have the option to upgrade to iOS 13.
i ended up watching it on youtube because the app wouldnt let me rewind the live broadcast, or even watch the keynote at all after the broadcast ended. What makes it worse is The keynote for ios was another extreme let down, for like the 4th year in a row. An entire year of work went into updating ios into android from 8-10 yrs ago. Apple lost its magic
By Alice in a Box
I don’t have many complaints. The Dev app is intuitive and useful. However, it would be nice if there was an option to have a walkthrough at first use, and an Android app. I have an iPad, which is good for developer news, but I can’t afford an iPhone and it would be more convenient to have it on my phone.
Non stop crashes 1/5
When tapping on session videos it’s a crap shoot if the app will crash or not. Not a good look.
This is not a good App 1/5
By I hope this nickname is not taken
This App does not give time for talks in the future. I guess they are availbe at the start of the day if they are just recordings, but who knows. It does not allow cutting and pasting which I always hate in Apple apps. I can't share info with my friends. I have to add to reader list to cut and past. What a pain.
Can’t Sign In 5/5
After latest update, when I tried to sign in. It showed unknown error
Unknown Error on Sign In 2/5
Can’t sign in with my Apple Developer Account. Get “Unknown Error” message. I assume you forgot to support your own 2FA #lol 🤪

Absolutely love this app! 5/5
Great for this years WWDC 2020. Love this app for projects and overall really easy for anyone to use!
please no political 1/5
By erc eld
the text in this app is like 4pt and the sidebar items look like scaled up 1x assets. i can't believe this is an app released in the year 2020. this should not have been released.
Works well on macOS 5/5
It's exactly what you'd expect not sure why this app has such a low rating. 1 LGTM.
Privacy concerns 3/5
This app basically asks for phone number and ID. So this is more for adults then teens. Please be careful when using this app.
Required Catalina! 1/5
By The Alpinist Frog
Why can't we run this on Mojave?
Expected content but minimal UI effort 3/5
By Waiting for the Perfect
Carousel on the main Discover section that can't be scrolled left or right. Completely inaccessible text font settings which is ironic when reading an article in the app about the HIG... Really weird three level navigation. It's like someone thought Finder was the perfect UI
It's got all the videos and handy categorization (which is why it gets the 3 stars) but needs tons of work and a UI overhaul
10.15-only Not a good look for inclusion 2/5
By Jason Gurtz
Why limit the audience? I guess it's a classic Apple move.
By familliar typicall
Difficult to use you can’t make stuff on there you said you can 😑 please read this because your stupid boiiii
It's like Apple has inexperienced kids writing code 1/5
By Law reviewer
Ugh....the app is so disconnected with its user audience....like it is designed and written by people who would never be actually using the app.
Apple is good at "design guidelines" for everyone else, but they seem to have no idea what it takes to make apps that are useful to the target audience.
The WWDC app a few years back was starting to look, act, and work well -- it has been downhill from there.
And, whoever thought that it was useful to truncate every single title -- on Apple's own hardware devices -- is really living on some other planet.
You owe me the one star I had to give to finally say something about this basic organizational flaw within Apple.
App has great potential 4/5
The app works great in both iOS/iPadOS and, recently, macOS. The navigation is logical and and I’m able to find things easily. This app has some great potential to be a great resource for development on Apple platforms. I would personally love to see support for browsing documentation and viewing the developer forums in the app if possible.
Glad it's finally on the Mac App Store 5/5
Looks great and I can't wait for the WWDC! And I love that it's finally available for Mac, since I had planned to watch the event on my MacBook. Thank you!!
Horizontal scrolling views 3/5
Great content, but the Discover page uses horizontal scrolling views that can't be scrolled wthout a trackpad. OK, or without a Magic Mouse or knowing you have to hold SHIFT while scrolling.
