The CW app reviews

  • I like the shows just not the ads 2/5

    By Meep_Meep_Meep
    Ok so let me clarify that I love the shows and I think they are amazing but I hate having an ad every like 5 minutes because im just trying to enjoy the show. I understand that you need ads for a free app but maybe you can give ad skips or something so I can skip a whole series of ads. Maybe give like 5 ad skips per certain time spent on the app and I don’t mean that you use 1 ads skip to skip just one ad I mean 1 skip to completely skip the series of ads.
  • Not loading Videos 3/5

    By 8265362
    Hi I’m Here To Tell you That the Cw App is not working right. when I’m trying to loading up a video Please fix it.
  • Needs settings 3/5

    By Tom_ATC
    Overall I like the app. I get that contracts limit to the last 5 episodes, though in the modern age of episodic TV having fall finales I wish they would release the early season episodes to streaming services in smaller chunks to let us get caught up and finish the show on the app. However my first complaint / reason for a drop of a star is that unlike other streaming apps, this one maintains the main iOS screen saver settings. When I use my phone normally I want it to lock automatically after a short period of me not touching it ... but if I’m watching an hour long show casted to my TV I don’t want to touch my phone for an hour, and definitely not every 2 minutes. Also, either the setting to go from one episode to the next doesn’t exist or it isn’t obvious / intuitive. Other streaming apps auto-forward too quickly (I sometimes like the music and some movies have post-credit scenes), but to not have the option to skip to next or automatically advance at the end also seems outdated. Other streaming video apps have these issues figured out, more or less, and they seem tome to be things that need to be priorities.
  • Captions turning off 3/5

    By Kity❤️
    I keep having the captions turn off after the ads play, then when I try to turn on the cap to one manually it restarts the entire episode. It’s rather annoying since it’s done this for about two weeks now.
  • Ads 1/5

    By attyefhy
    I spend more time watching ads than I do the show every 8 minutes a set of 5 ads 30 seconds to a minute each waste of time not worth it
  • I HATE THE ADS 5/5

    By thecwsucks
  • Too many ads 1/5

    By appleuser20040704
    There’s way more ads than there is the show plus they don’t have whole seasons I’d rather just wait till the new season comes out on Netflix its a better idea
  • Your ads are relentless 1/5

    By KingRiskin
    Watching the same ads (and this is a real number) 9 times an episode is just unacceptable.
  • CW 2/5

    Very large number of ads. Also very frustrating on Xbox (or any version I assume) when you need to fast forward/rewind to a certain point but are unable to unless you watch ads at every checkpoint. Terrible feature and would really love to see it fixed or changed.
  • I don’t understand 3/5

    By angle eys
    I have this app and it says stream latest episodes and I can’t seem to watch any of the latest!!!! I wish someone would explain to me on why!!!!!
  • Playback error stalled out 3/5

    By Gnomhider
    I tried to open and restart it this map multiple times but it always stalls out. I am connected to WiFi and everything
  • Trash 2/5

    By Rpjz
    App is trash. The subtitles always stop after each set of ads, I have to turn them off and back on again to get them working. Sometimes the voices will start skipping and i have to hit rewind. This app has been out for a few years now...fix your janky garbage app.
  • what i think of the app! 1/5

    By yslbaby20
  • Totally recommended 5/5

    By lilchoppaking
    People blabber bloobering about this app but its great and free u can’t hate something like cw app because it’s free it not like u can make ur own movie app
  • Ads 1/5

    By 將軍澳及早
    Too much ads and when you go to rewatch something that happen the show it makes you rewatch the whole ad break
  • Fix the orientation control 2/5

    By gnixing
    As other reviewers have mentioned, the orientation controls in the app are just the worst. If it wasn’t for the programming CW has, I would probably delete this app and never look back.
  • Freezes during ads. 2/5

    By Steelcraze84
    I’m alright with the ads since the app is free. But multiple times trying to watch a show it freezes during the ad. Then I have to restart the app and when I play the show again, I have to watch the ads all over again, and half the time they freeze again. Almost feel it’s worth waiting for the shows to end their seasons and just watch on Netflix.
  • The television channel 1/5

    By Amdbrkthpn
    I don’t like the fact that I actually have the tv channel and have to watch most of my favorite shows on the app because while I’m watching my shows on the tv, the visual of the show keeps messing up. I paid for the channel to be on cable to, I should only have to use the app if I missed a show I didn’t set to record. And when I’m on the app I have to go through all the commercials that I am trying to avoid.
  • Please update 3/5

    By findthebug
    I like this app it’s chill buuuut for some reason the ads always run in the background while the episode is still playing. Also it keep skipping some of the scenes when the ads are over.
  • Thanks you but come on 3/5

    By applesannoying
    Thanks for letting me watch stuff for free, but I hate that it never takes me to where I left off. It’ll be like continue? I click it boom 15 minutes before where I actually left off and its back on the other side of the commercial🤦🏻‍♂️
  • Videos don’t play. 1/5

    By Phaniebrice
    Videos don’t play on current version of app.
  • The cw 1/5

    By harrisong12
    I can’t watch all of the episodes
  • Supernatural Episodes 1/5

    By Janelane87
    I am disappointed because I don’t see too much of Supernatural Episodes.To which I miss. It be nice to see old episodes of Supernatural.
  • Why CW !!!!!!!!! 1/5

    By GenjisToxic
    Stop the ads please get rid of half of them like bruh the just so many
  • Too many ads 3/5

    By Cc_omg
    Way too many ads, I’m gonna delete the app
  • Orientation is BACKWARDS! 1/5

    By jonathan2006
    Why would you take the ability to make it go both ways and lock it to the opposite side of most iPad cases?!?!?!?!?!
  • Love the content, but portrait mode stinks 3/5

    By johnnyandtiana
    Why would a video app default to portrait instead of landscape?
  • Remarkably bad with Chromecast 1/5

    By BlueRoboy
    Just remarkable how bad the app is at streaming when connected to Chromecast. So blurry you often can’t even tell what’s going on. Ads play crystal clear, of course.
  • Great app but 4/5

    By (no name)*
    This app is literally a lifesaver and I’ve seen it getting better overtime. The ads are just annoying. I feel like I’ve been getting less ads now but by the time I’m done with the the episode I’d memorized every ad because it’s the same annoying stuff
  • Does NOT give all episodes 1/5

    By 🧐😭😖☹️😞
    Does NOT give all episodes
  • Forever Buffering 1/5

    By IPadBunny
    This app does nothing but buffer every 30 seconds it makes shows unwatchable. And before people attack my internet we have a good internet connection and all other apps work perfectly fine. This is the only app that you can’t watch more than 30-60 seconds without the buffering logo popping up at the worse possible time. It’s annoying fix the broken app!
  • Casting doesn’t work, buffering all round 1/5

    By FPlus
    Just gets stuck on the connect pop up when trying to cast. Their servers are lackluster and the app buffers on IPhone, Apple TV, FireTv Etc. Just bad. Every few minutes! Give up CW you can’t do this
  • Cast/airplay is worthless 2/5

    I’ve given this app so many chances update after update and it still cannot AirPlay or cast to my tv even though the options are there to click on. Every other app on my phone works but this one. Also, the subtitles are off a lot.
  • Love this App 5/5

    By Shelton the best singer
    This app is great for if you don’t want to turn on the TV and ads are short
  • Doesn’t load at all 1/5

    By hatesCWapp
    Tried this on both my iPhone and iPad Pro. Both updated to latest, etc. won’t load anything. Netflix has no issues.
  • Sound sync issues 1/5

    By Ahontaz B
    It’s so many great shows on the cw and I would love if the app worked correctly. The sound on every video does not match. You have to fast forward and rewind to get it to match, but that doesn’t fix the issue for the whole episode. The sound for the commercials start about 15 seconds before the show reaches its stopping point, and once the show is back from ads, you have to do the whole fast forward rewind thing again for the sound to sync. Every single show, on every single ad. 5 stars if those bugs were fixed.
  • Not a very good streaming app 2/5

    By connor j j k k
    I only got the app because i wanted to watch all American you guys don’t even make it to we’re I can watch all the episodes if I’m gonna watch adds can I at least see the first episode it will just make y’all more money if y’all add them
  • Good for a free app 3/5

    By Venus_Atlas
    The app is great if you are caught on the latest episodes. Though it’s annoy that their is a big gap between the first episode and the next. I got the app to watch Supernatural. I was able to watch the first episode but not the second. It goes from the first episode to episode eight. I don’t know if those are the only episode that are going to be on their. If not, I’d like to know when other episode will be streamed .
  • Needs better design 1/5

    By Jessie Hutcherson
    On the app there’s no way to look up shows and they focus on their best known shows way to much! I have to do to much just to watch legacies! It’s no where on the app I have to get on the website then it won’t let me watch it on the website so then I have to bypass to the app anyways like this REALLY needs be remade because not all of us watch and enjoy riverdale we’re here for other actual shows so if those changes can be made then that would be great thanks!
  • Amazing 5/5

    By moannnn❤️❤️😘😘🥰🥰
    I love how your able too watch your CW shows on here for free
  • Confused 1/5

    By PrinĆesS
    Why can’t I watch the first 4 episodes of legacies on CW app? I’d love to watch season 2 from the beginning..

    By queen nay23
    First of all way to many ads which are all the same and there are like 1-6 ads that take up a whole lot of time I get that you need to have ads to be a free app but it should be 1-3 ads. Second of all it takes forever for another episode to come out and that’s just uncool. Third of all is I like the app because I get to see my shows but you seriously need to fix this cause I’m just not with that
  • Too Many Ads 3/5

    By Jkfio
    Although I love the idea of being able to watch the shows free, I don’t mind sitting through some ads (actually I don’t I do something else like old school TV shows) however this app has several ads in a short span. Watching a 40 min show it will have 4 segments of ads with multiple ads per segment. It’s annoying. I’d almost rather wait until the shows arrive on Netflix or Prime Video. It also keeps crashing. Sometimes it just goes black on the screen. Other times it buffers, then plays, then crashes.
  • GREAT when works & not constantly stall 3/5

    By wha.....
    It worked until last update and very upsetting when it works great then doesn’t load any shows or play at all.
  • Improvements 3/5

    By Sound sleeper 2
    Overall, I really like the app. However, there are a few things that need to be improved. The app currently has issues switching between the shows and the menu buttons(ie community, feedback, etc.) also, streaming/sharing the app on any device such as my Samsung tv( bc they don’t offer the app) would be fantastic. Sometimes the app crashes. Please make the appropriate adjustments.
  • Fix a few things 3/5

    By johnny81800
    You can only watch on one side, you can flip it to the other way which is really annoying, secondly it needs to be fixed where it resumes where you actually left off, not on a ad or 20 mins back. This app use to be really good up until they updated it
  • What I think 3/5

    By DrippySauceGirl
    Look it’s a good app but they shouldn’t take some episodes of some tv shows of. For example, I haven’t been on my riverdale and all American like usual but I wanted to start again but most of the episodes are gone.
  • A Problem 4/5

    By fortnite_lover73737374744
    Hey! I love the app and all the shows that are on it, but I do have a problem. On the show Legacies, I don’t like how it doesn’t have all the episodes in season two. I really like the show and would like to watch the rest of season two. If you could ever add those episodes in the near future, I would gladly appreciate it! Everything else I really like!
  • To many ads and trash streaming 3/5

    By mad_uchiha
    The ads are ridiculous I’d rather pay to get rid of them then constantly sit through them and why do you stream some series completely and others all chopped up it makes catching up a headache in itself
