Great content....iOS app crashes 3/5
By C flowers
I love this app! I use it for myself, to facilitate my single moms group and especially for my 4 year old! I don’t have a problem giving her my phone to watch Story Book, Bible Man or anything else! This is especially great since we have a 20 min commute to and from school/work. My complaint is that it constantly crashes! My daughter gets so frustrated when she cannot watch a show. On the roku app there is no auto play. Would love to have that!
Chromecast compatibility 4/5
We are thoroughly enjoying all RNM has to offer! Our only question is why can’t we connect to and cast to our TVs from our phones? Seems to work fine from iPad but there is no option to cast to TV from our phones.

Great material, app is so buggy it’s disappointing
Started out a 5 star .... I’d give it zero but 1 is the lowest 1/5
When I first started using RightNow, I was able to cast to any Chromecast devices in my home including my main TV which has it built in. There have been two updates since I reported the issue with an update which resulted in Cast not working at all. The Cast button is displayed by cannot see any devices. Although I can use my AppleTV, it makes more it complex to share other things I use for display. I know it is an easy fix but am bewildered at how you can implement two updates without a fix - bewildered at not catching the error before it happened. As others have stated, I’ve had some crashes with AppleTV as well - problems only occur with this App.
App unstable 1/5
Was really looking forward to watching these after just signing up. Unfortunately, the app freezes on my phone even after a hard restart.
I have been using this successfully on my iPad and sometime in the last month I lost the availability of the Chromecast icon. I cannot throw the video to my TV. This has been disruptive to our group Bible study.
Love it but it freezes up 4/5
We love RNM! We’ve noticed issues since the latest update. We will be watching a show and the picture will freeze while the audio continues. It took us 60 min to get through a 30 min McGee and Me episode. We had to summarize the last 5 mins of the show for our kids because we couldn’t get it to work. Good thing that I saw the episode so many times in the 90s...ha! Looking forward to some bug fixes. 👍🏼
LOVE the Right Now Media App!!! 5/5
My daughter age 6 has been watching Right Now Media Kid’s for about a year now and has Learned soooooooo much about the Bible and the Lord. It is very user friendly, doesn’t have annoying adds or commercials like Kids YouTube, and is beyond educational. I am so beyond thankful my daughter can freely watch Bible Man and rockiN music videos, and other fun Christian kids shows, without me constantly hovering over her with anxiety when she watches Kids YouTube. Was introduced to this app through my church Katy Community Fellowship and it’s been nothing but amazing to say the least.
Helpful but.... 3/5
This app is put together very well. However, most the time it would be more practical if the user could save or download an offline version for travel.
Casting Feature Unavailable 3/5
By Tech Pastor
This review is not concerning the content but is rather the app functionality. We use RightNow Media for a lot of small group studies but ever since the last GUI update the ability to cast to chromecast enabled devices is completely gone. We have tried uninstalling and reinstalling the app, restarting/resetting devices, and rebooting systems, but the problem persists. Every other casting app works fine. PLEASE FIX THIS ISSUE! I will gladly update my review when patched!
It’s pretty buggy 2/5
By CrashBandicoot :)
I use this app for small group but it keeps crashing :( could you please fix it
Great app but crashes 4/5
Lots of great content. Well organized.
But now it crashes when clicking on recently viewed videos
Not able to cast on chrome cast 3/5
Lots of good content!
I am not able to cast the videos using chrome cast. The option is available, but doesn’t cast on TV. I wonder if there is a software update for this? I’ve seen other reviews that complained about the same issue with chrome cast.
Great app for Apple TV 5/5
Great resource , children love super book!
External Vimeo Content Works Now (sort of) 4/5
By MV Dave
This is an update from last review. This latest update doesn’t crash when you try to view content hosted on Vimeo. My only criticism now is that the main page doesn’t scale correctly and covers the upper half of the bottom buttons on iPhone XS Max screens under iOS. I was not able to test casting to Chromecast yet but will update review once I do.
Great but glitches 3/5
This is a great app and has great material but any time I watch videos or want to get in I’m either logged out or the app crashes and I can’t do anything. Could you please fix these issues.
Crash trash crash 1/5
The content is great. The app keeps on crashing when playing material. Please fix it.
Latest version 2.3.2 is trash 2/5
This newest version (2.3.2) should not have made it for release. The lower screen icons are partially covered by the main screen content. However, most importantly, the Cast button is gone now. Not having this button renders this app USELESS (unless l have 10 people crowded around my 4” iPhone X screen)
Please roll it back and try again
Freezes and crashes all the time 1/5
The content looks like it will be great, but so far the app always freezes while I’m scrolling, sometimes doesn’t un-freeze, crashes when I try to watch a video, or if the video does play there is only sound and no picture. I’ll have to just use my computer to access the content since so far the app is nearly impossible to use.
This version is broken. 3/5
By Evil Bob
This version seems to crash frequently a minute or so into playing a media resource. Retrying usually works, so it’s not a total disaster, but it’s clearly not as reliable as it was in the previous version.
Another issue that has just appeared is that the Chromecast function is missing. This is something I’ve used for a few months without any issue, and its sudden disappearance is puzzling.
Finally, the layout on the iPhone X (at least) is difficult to operate. Content thumbnails partially overlap the navigation icons at the bottom of the screen, and trying to tap the Airplay icon at the top during playback is much trickier than it used to be, making it difficult to send audio to my Bluetooth headphones.
I love a lot about this app but it’s only barely usable in its current state. Here’s hoping for a timely update.
Everytime I try to watch a video the app crashes in the middle
Great resource but constantly crashing 1/5
I cannot tell you enough how much I love the content of the app. It’s perfect for my family and has great videos for the kids. I would give this five stars BUT as of last week I cannot cast my RightNow media app to my chrome cast. The icon has disappeared and I’ve done everything to try to resolve this. From reinstalling the app, making sure I’m connected to the right WiFi as my chrome cast, to restarting my phone and chrome cast. What can I do? Is this just my iphone or is it a different issue? Please help!
Chromecast Error 3/5
The Chromecast icon has disappeared in the most recent update. Possibly a bug issue with the latest version? Letting developers know to possibly fix the bug for a new update.
I LOVE right now media 3/5
But the app constantly crashes 😩 I use RightNow media to chrome cast to our tv so my kids have uplifting Christian kids shows to watch. I’m so sad the app crashes all the time. Most of the tome it’s within seconds of opening. Not sure why it’s happening bc everything on my phone has been updated. 🤔 I live RightNow media so much I want to give it 5 stars but the app just doesn’t work 😕
Buggy. Hope there are fixes 5/5
Still have issues with queuing videos. Crashes after that. Also crashes after viewing trainings. Hope there will be a fix soon for all of this
It’s so good. 5/5
I’m so grateful for this app. It’s not Jesus but it points me to him. Really worth a try.
Cant even log in 1/5
Just downloaded the app. Can’t use it at all because it won’t recognize my Id and password combo. It works fine on the desktop website, but the app for iPhone is useless to me.
Chromecast icon 3/5
This icon has disappeared from the upper right hand corner. I, therefore, can’t cast to my TV. It is just a recent development possibly within the last week. Does the update have anything to do with that and how can it be fixed?
App crashing 2/5
Love the app but it’s been crashing more lately. Frustrating
Worst App On My Phone 1/5
By M. East.
I absolutely love the Right Now Media content. However, from a performance standpoint, this is easily the lowest-performing app I’ve ever downloaded. It is constantly freezing or closing for no reason. I have to open it 3 or 4 times and select the video I want to even begin watching. Occasionally, it never works and I simply give up trying.
Shuts down 2/5
Started having problems turns off after less than a minute of being on. Constantly having issues wish it was more reliable.
Was a great app used it all the time 1/5
Now when i try to use it on my iphone it just gives me a sever error and doesn't allow me to do anything
Crash City 1/5
I have been using this for a while and used to love it - great content and even better message - imagine my regret when I try to use it and after a very short time it crashes and thus I have not been able to use it since the last update - maybe even longer but didn’t need it prior. Now I am out of luck in getting programs I need. FIX THIS please. It is the greatest content of any resource site I know but so what if you cannot use it.
Too many bugs 1/5
The app crashes too many times on Apple TV for my family to be able to consistently enjoy its content. For the last half year it won’t even let me login, and crashes immediately while booting.
Due to its lack of proper maintenance, I would not say this is a wise purchase for a church.
By NOT neil degrasse tyson
It keeps crashing! I can’t find a pattern or reason. Will happen during video, during question responses, or even during readings. Very frustrating. Please fix.
Doesn’t work. 1/5
Keeps crashing. I can’t watch anything.
Where do you sign up 1/5
I installed the app but it won’t let me
Sign up it just asks me to Log in but I don’t have a login??
Great Resource But Always Crashes 3/5
I love it when it works properly but it crashes all the time...
5 star content plagued by a 1 star interface 1/5
Frequently crashes while scrolling and during video playback. The content is amazing but the bugs in this app make it downright unusable.
Fix it 3/5
This actually was a great app, but now it crashes all the time. Fix it and I’ll amend my review
App would be great if it would actually work 1/5
App wouldn’t stay open for more than 5 seconds. Automatically shuts down.
Great resource! Terrible on a hand held! 1/5
By Vityok Kon
This is a great resource! We use it for our youth group, for ourselves, and with others. Everybody loves it.
However, it is pretty much impossible to use this app on a phone or other handheld device. For the price that our church and other churches pay a month for this app, I think it is not to much to ask for RightNow Media to update and fix the bugs related to phone and hand held operation.
App crashes 3/5
I love the content and material and also love that you have an audio only mode but I can make it through an entire section without it crashing every few minutes. It makes it very difficult to listen to anything while driving and it constantly crashing. Please fix and release another update.
Great content, poor app experience 2/5
App constantly locks up and is unresponsive on iOS 12 iPhone X.
Freeze frame 2/5
It’s frustrating that I try to watch a video or even select a video or bible study and it freezes my phone. This is mainly on my phone app in which I have a new phone that is top of the line. It works better from my computer but I can’t carry it around with me. Disappointed to say the least.
I used to love this app and use it daily. Now every time I am watching something it crashes. So frustrating because I can’t enjoy any series.
Good stuff minus the crashes 2/5
By Levi Lewis 33
I love the idea and I love the app and all the material it holds. But I cannot seem to access almost any of it on my phone due to the app crashing. Please fix.
Needs work 1/5
RNM has Great content! The App is horrible tho. Continuous crashes and glitches. Very unstable. Please improve app.
Won’t load pass sign in 1/5
I have had the app for a few years. Went to use the app at a new church and tried to sign in. The app won’t load pass the sign in.
