Great app, well worth the price. Something for kids but also for adults!
One thing I hope to see in the future is being able to cast comics on to the TV.
DC Universe 5/5
By Vegan Butcher
Really enjoy all of the content (movies, original shows, DC news, etc, etc). For all you get well worth the price. HIGHLY RECOMMEND for anyone with any kind of interest in anything DC (this coming from a Marvel Zombie too!).
Won’t Screen Mirror 1/5
App is still not available on all smart TVs and still can’t mirror the content on them.
Ok For Casting Video, Garbage for Reading Comics 3/5
I haven't tried watching videos on the app on my iPad yet but I have had no problems casting to my TV. Reading comics is another matter entirely. This thing crashes at least 1x per book and it's super annoying.
Severe lack of content 1/5
By Der Kaiser Z
Thought this was DC’s version of Marvel Unlimited? Ha! Silly worm. They want you to pay to subscribe, then buy single issues after you read some “introductory issues”.
Sure, they have a handful of 50, 60, 70+ runs, which is great, but it’s choice material for specific fans.
Get the free trial and try it out, but I am glad I didn’t pre-order/pay for a membership.
DC you need to offer your entire library, period.
Muy malo 1/5
No sirve para nada solo está en inglés
I want the entire digital library. 1/5
By Zaran Black
I got this app because. Thought Dcs entire library will be on it. I’ve tried Reading their comics and everything I’ve read is just a sampling and end abruptly. There are new dc animated movies that should be on this service but aren’t. Why advertise this stuff if the tv shows are the only thing that are supported and I hear even those are getting budget cuts. I’m going to cancel my subscription if this is all it is.
Buggy app 2/5
I signed up for DC Universe as soon as preorders went live. Since then, I've hardly used it. A huge reason for that is due to this incredibly buggy app. Almost everytime I attempt to load a comic on my iPhone or iPad, the screen goes black and becomes unresponsive. I usually have to close and relaunch the app several times just to get a comic to finally load. The app also feels incredibly disorganized and hard to navigate. I just want to use the service I paid for, but this app makes that so frustrating it's hardly worth the effort.
Start Over 2/5
By Robbie B77
Navigation is an utter mess. Doesn’t have a complete library. The original content is great but otherwise this app is pretty useless. Save your $
Everything was amazing until I couldn’t connect this app with my Apple TV app. What gives?
Download Videos but still Needs Service 2/5
By Brad Brooks
So I just downloaded this app yesterday and I was so excited to see all the content that was available. So I downloaded a lot of episodes and movies. I went to work the next day, which Is a manufacturing company. So I have no service. But I didn’t think anything of it because I download everything. I went on my break, open the app and it doesn’t work because it needs cellular data. So what’s the point of downloading if I need cellular data to watch. The WHOLE point of downloading is so you can watch without using data. This is completely pointless and makes no sense. I have Netflix and I download movies and shows all the time. So when I watch it, it works great, because I downloaded it! I don’t understand why this app can’t do this especially when you pay for it. So eventually I turn my cellular data on and got a little service, but the playback was blurry. Even from the ones I downloaded under Wi-Fi. This is my first time using this app and I had such a bad experience. I was so excited to use it and all of his features but it’s sad that I can’t get the full experience because it requires data. I think this is a simple fix that should be addressed. I should be able to open my app and once it sees that I have no cellular data, then it should automatically go to my downloaded library. This is exactly what Netflix and other apps do and it’s very simple. Please fix this
DC Does it Again 1/5
Regretfully bought the year thinking it was going to be good. Don’t know why I expected anything different from DC other than disappointment. As a yearly subscriber before the app was live I was supposed to get 1 day early access except nothing worked. So the next day I was able to use it and I got excited I went to read The Dark Knight Returns only to find out that the second issue wasn’t there. Ok I still had Teen Titans great show until you find out that you can only watch one episode a week as they come out. Then a few days later I wasn’t able to log in for like a week until they fixed the app. So after that I figured at least I still had their full library of animated films right? Nope I watched everything they had in a couple days. The selection is still poor to this day. So now we are up to around current when once again I see that Krypton is on there so I figure why not I’ll give it a shot. Got really into it love the show but alas after binging the season you find out that you can no longer watch anymore episodes after the first season except for episode one of season 2 which is gone now. No mention what so ever of if or when they will put season 2 on there. Then there is Swamp Thing once again awesome show but at this point it’s not enough for me to keep paying DC for their crappy app and content. MARVEL Unlimited is a far superior app and all they have is comics. It’s sad really. Seems DC can never get anything right. One other thing I forgot to mention. To this day anything you watch and leave in the middle of it will not save your spot from where you stopped watching.
swamp thing 5/5
i love the new series please keep them coming!!!
Great for DC Material, but very buggy. 3/5
By Bruce Wayne 039
I really like the app for its various DC material. The original shows are GREAT as well. The only thing that bothers me are the bugs. They’re not huge problems. But they add up. Maybe it’s just for IPhone, but every time I pull up my notifications, the movie or show just restarts or won’t let me play it. The comics are kind of tedious to read, too. I would gladly rate it 5 star if these bugs and others were fixed.
Dc is awesome again 5/5
By NICU Laurie
Dc universe is great and it just captures what made dc good in the first place.
Great selection 4/5
But it has some bugs. Like if I’m watching a show and then have to answer a phone call, want to go back to the show after the calls the show description will stay on the screen a lot of times during play and I have to close the app and reopen it to fix it.
I also wish it would save your spot on downloaded vids. It gets annoying having to find where I was when I continue off-line. Also being an app that is supposed to have everything DC I wish it would have all the new DC movies
By opened our cafe beaned mind!
This is upsetting 1/5
It doesn’t even let me create an account for dc
Amazing service 5/5
I love the new focus on comics and the organization of it. Would it be possible to tone down the sensitivity of moving to the next page on the full page reader mode. Frequently I’m just scrolling down to get to the bottom, and it changes the page. Thank you for all the work you’ve put into this! It’s very clear you guys are listening to your fans. DC Universe is awesome!
App doesnt work well 2/5
This app literally gives me the most difficulty when I’m trying to watch a show that buffers for too long and no it’s not because of my Internet it will literally buffer and then I’ll exit out and then it’ll play so I’m confused as to why the app is playing when it’s closed. I love The shows and all that come with it but please update
Terrible streaming 1/5
Most defective streaming I’ve ever had on an app
Used to be fine, now its a mess 2/5
Can’t flip back to the home screen without it starting at some random part of an episode when i come back. Navigation is messy, and theres a glitch where the dark tint appears along with an episode summary and you can’t get it off. I dont remember it being like this before, really hope they fix it... I’m disappointed really.
Super Fan Of DC but NOT This!!! 1/5
I am a huge collector and fan of DC as a whole but this app falls short. It NEVER works EVER!! Ever time I try to browse it takes forever to load and doesn’t work. Also why do I have to leave the show after it ends to start a new one. It should start automatically. Have we not learned anything from Netflix? I’m so upset I paid for the whole year for a app that’s not even close to being ready.
Not worth it 1/5
This app is free but it’s not worth $75 or $7 just to watch or read this app is a scam. I could download a different app that doesn’t have a catchy little scamming price and some of the apps I downloaded in the past never had this problem and if any one wants to to download this app just think about the words I just said. Is it worth it No and sorry for the nickname I was new to the hole review thing when I wrote my first review my bad.
I give this 0 star 👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻🤦🏼♂️ stupid ratings can’t even let me give it 0 star.
Ps developer your not worth my time or money
Video player needs a ton of work 1/5
By Larissa Ayn
Sadly this app is garbage when it comes to watching videos on it. The videos are enjoyable, but when I pause the video that is playing I am unable to have it start playing again unless I restart the app. If I get a notification or switch to another app and come back, suddenly the video starts way back at the beginning. Also the comics are inconvenient to read. When I read a series I need to navigate to the series page each time I read a new issue.
For an app I am paying for these are ridiculous problems that need to be fixed. A big company like DC should not have this many bugs on the only platform to access their shows. I have always been a big DC fan and it is incredibly disappointing.
New version available? 2/5
Ever since I got the app, every time I open it, it will say there’s a new version available and to go to the App Store to fix it, it’s updated to it’s latest version. I’ll try deleting and then reinstalling the app, but if this problem keeps happening my review will have to stay at two stars out of five. Please respond DC comics if you’re listening, thank you.
Glitchiest app you’ll ever use despite fantastic content. 2/5
I signed on for this service sight unseen at SDCC in 2018. It’s been operational (term used loosely) since October of that year and it’s now July of ‘19. The app still crashes, the app still has navigation difficulties, the app still doesn’t open certain titles without it locking up so you have to close the app to do anything.
Clearly the developers are concentrating on streaming content, leaving us comic readers to shake our heads after every update when nothing changes for us.
They have a nice community in app where you can make your complaints and suggestions where they refer you to another address to properly do that, but since I’m paying DC, it would be nice if the moderators would handle that.
In closing, I still recommend the content... when it works.
Sharecast button 5/5
Could it be moved to the left of the screen
Highly great, just a small issue 4/5
I’m completely loving this app, I’ve been reading comics every night since last year and I’m catching up on so much,
however I will say can yall add Krypto the super dog cartoon please
Also another thing is that when I’m browsing the comic series when I’m on the “all comic series” page, it takes me back to the top every time I go back from looking at the comics in a series, can u please fix that issue
Always crashing 1/5
App is always crashing when trying to stream movies or tv shows. Wasting more time trying to reboot the app then watching material. Uninstalled and unsubscribes.
THANKS SO MUCH 5/5
I have been waiting so long sabed enough money for this and boom...thanks so much that is all I want to say.
App issues 3/5
Major issues with the app in regards to the streaming service. Sometimes I’ll exit out of the app for 2 mins, and when I return I am unable to hit the play button. Or if I do hit the play button, the entire screen becomes dark. Also when I press pause, and press play again , the overlay of the pause, play, and episode description don’t go away. It’s a good service but the app needs a lot of work.
I Love This Service!!! 5/5
I have been a huge supporter of this service since I first heard about it. I preordered it for the year, and haven’t looked back. I’ve read upwards of 500 comics from this app alone. I love all the original series they have put on here. I actually like Titans and can’t wait for season 2. I truly hope this stays around for years to come.
DC UNIVERSE APP/SUBSCRIPTION IS AMAZING!!! 5/5
This is one subscription that is ABSOLUTELY WORTH IT!!! Everything from the live action movies to the animated movies/series and the original series it has EVERYTHING A DC FAN COULD POSSIBLY WANT (if they added Suicide Squad: Hell to Pay it would complete the list but this is one of the only titles lacking in the DC Universe app)!!! Thank you for this AMAZINGLY AWESOME EXPERIENCE DC!!!!
Great content, horrible app 2/5
By JeffH CA
Trying to use this app on the AppleTV is incredibly frustrating. It doesn't remember where you were in and episode, and often won't remember which episode you last watched, starting you in the middle of an episode you've already finished.
It also takes longer to launch than any other AppleTV app.
The DC content is great, but the app is extremely amateurish.
Good but some issues 4/5
First, i want to say how awesome it is to be able to read and watch DC related content. From the old-that brings nostalgia or the stuff that came out before i was even born- and the new, it’s great
Just an issue i have is that the comic loads but once i leave the app for a few seconds, it says there’s been an error and to retry, but it never works. I am not losing signal or wifi either. The comics work again after i close and restart the app. It gets annoying
One feature i’d like to see added is that, while being in panel mode, we get the option to see the full page first or last
Season 3 change of style.. 4/5
I’m (20) and you make me feel old
Classics never die right?
Great...when it works 3/5
Love the content, but it’s the glichiest app I’ve ever used on my Firestick. Constantly freezing up, won’t play programs...deleted and reinstalled, but same deal. When it finally does work, it’s awesome—just need to be patient I guess
The App still suffers bugs and glitches. 3/5
Sometimes the show pauses randomly and the screen turns black. Which forces me to close the app and restart the show. Also it doesn’t keep track on where I left off. You guys need to fix this mess ASAP
Literally stealing( NOW WITH MORE STEALING) 1/5
Signed up to watch Doom Patrol and now every time I go to click on a video to watch it, it takes me to a sign up page even though I’m signed in. Completely useless and this is literal theft.
UPDATE: THESE THIEVES CHARGED MY ACCOUNT A MONTH AFTER I CANCELLED THE SERVICE, WHICH CAUSED MY ACCOUNT TO OVERDRAFT AND CHARGE ME A FEE. NOW THEIR “SUPPORT” TELLS ME THEY CANT REFUND ME FOR PREVIOUS MONTHS CHARGES EVEN AFTER EXPLAINING SEVERAL TIMES THERE WAS NEVER SUPPOSED TO BE ANY CHARGES BECAUSE I CANCELLED THE DUMB SERVICE BEFORE ANY CHARGES SHOULD HAVE BEEN MADE. THIS IS THE WORST SERVICE IVE EVER HAD IN MY LIFE AND I HAVE ATLANTIC BROADBAND FOR AN INTERNET PROVIDER!
So again, I’m writing. Not sure if my other review was deleted, seeing that I can’t find it anywhere. We all know that there needs to be fixed bugs everywhere. We can’t have black beetle ruining things now can we? Anyways I understand that it’s not the app itself that has been discriminating against a certain type of people, but I’m hoping that you would please read this and consider my pointed out facts. The certain type of people that I said before who are being discriminated are the Christians. I know that just might cause you to gnaw with your teeth. I understand your perspective, but if you discriminate us, even though you think we are being discriminatory, then you yourself are hypocrites, because you are being discriminatory yourself. Now please read this and consider my review. If I don’t stand up to this then no one probably will. America will fall, and the people themselves will fall right along with it. When it comes to discriminating, the DC universe accepts a certain type of people other than us, the Christian people. Their universe barely has any Christians in it. I’m talking about a non-compromising, non “gay” Christian. You would allow a member of the LGBT community before you would ever accept a Christian. There is discrimination somewhere in this. Christians know the truth, being gay or lesbian or whatever is wrong. People try to force us to watch gay things, and some people don’t even want to see it. A person was suspended for not wanting to attend an LGBT class. This was a ten year old girl! According to the United States of America, discrimination is against the law. That includes all people, not just the people that you want to accept. Thank you for taking your time out and reading this, goodbye and may God have grace upon you.

More than meets the eye... 5/5
This app is so much more than just it’s shows. As a life long comic fanatic this app has allowed be to browse and read many series that I haven’t had rd opportunity to really dig into. The full runs of so many obscure titles have been a welcome surprise and well worth the monthly fee.
Despite the negativity surrounding the Swamp Thing drama, this app is great. Titans was good, Doom Patrol was great, and Swamp Thing is amazing (please save it!)... I look forward to Star Girl and I hope this app grows and lives on with more success. The original content is the best I’ve seen from any iterations produced by any company about any comic property. I can’t recommend it enough.
DC App 5/5
Best app to watch all your DC shows and movies
Never to old for DC! 5/5
Can’t get enough of this wonderful world of DC! Looking forward to more series and movie add on’s! I have been a fan of DX ever since I was first introduced to Superman in the early 70’s! I’m an old head! A old fan and a fan for life!
Not Travel Friendly 2/5
It’s okay for home entertainment but if you’re traveling, it makes no effort whatsoever to let you access the app.
Dc die hard! 2/5
By One master to another
So my review has 2 stars because I feel as a fan of everything dc this app while it does aim for our hearts and delivers in epic ways the care of the app and the team behind it in MY opinion falls extremely short! First off as far as the app goes there’s way to many bugs and issues just trying to get the main page open oh man dont you rush to fast to any page or link in app it will just freeze 95 percent of the time! And oh don’t get me started on downloading things and having them just fail even tho it’s supposedly downloaded and fine until 3 seconds in if you even get that far! Now onto the cast of dc daily! There way to opinionated about things irrelevant to what they talk about. Now to there credit I’ve only seen two episodes before I just couldn’t do it again so I’ll say this again this is MY opinion here but there like I said to opinionated about things that shouldn’t be involved in the subject they were talking about. If it’s who's the best bat family character and they all pick based off of looks and or sex then no it’s not a good conversation sorry not for a comics based show have a opinion talk for that. Again just my opinion. Other then that the content is 100 percent phenomenal! Doom patrol is easily one of if not my favorite all time shows and swamp thing(rip) is also fantastic! Titans was great and the backlog of old content is fantastic! I do think more original content would be great such as new short series or crossover series but for what is there is amazing! Definitely worth the hassle that comes with the app!
Downloading shows or movies 3/5
By Flyy Guy Ty
I really enjoy the streaming service because of the content it has but I must say using the mobile version has been driving me absolutely nuts because of all the bugs I’ve been encountering! Sometimes if I press the pause button it will glitch and not allow me to continue watching the show forcing me to close the app and restart. Or sometimes, if leave the app for whatever reason it will not give me an option to pick up right where I left off and again I’ll have to force close the app and restart it. Granted, this isn’t a terribly big deal but the simple fact that I have to do it at all is frustrating and I would say it happens 4 out of 10 times which isn’t unbearable but it still needs to be addressed given this is a subscription based service so the subscribers deserve a near flawless experience.
DC Universe 5/5
I love watching DC Universe, I’ve been watching since I was a young girl, I can just watch this all day. DC Universe is awesome. Please keep DC Universe comics coming with more great animations as well 💯💯💯💯💯👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾😍😍😍😍😍 ♾♾♾♾♾♾♾
