Love The Cw App but needs to be fixed 4/5
I’ve used “The Cw App” for many years . I love the app and all the content ! Best that is free! There’s a bug that happens on my phone . The pause bottom at times does not work at times . I press it multiple times and I have to quit the app. Also the app does not save my progress in the show so I need to rewatch the advertisements and get to the places I left off. Which at times I’m close to finishing an episode and the app crashes . Then I need to watch like 10 minutes worth of advertisement to finally get to the place I left off at . Which is really frustrating ! Beside that great job ! Thanks !
Play back error 4/5
I like the whole app but I hate it when I press continue but on 20 seconds it says playback error
Love the app 4/5
I love the flow of the app. It's easy to use and not too many ads. The only reason I took one star is its the only streaming app I use that you can't make or full screen for iPhone XS screen. The black space on my screen is beyond annoying everything else is A plus.
Love this app but there’s one problem 5/5
I love the CW app because I can watch all my favorite shows from my phone. The one problem I do keep having is that whenever a commercial is playing and I go into another app I have to completely refresh the app after I come back because it freezes and won’t let me push anything to go back or push play.
I have had the cw app for about 2 years now and though all it shows are the latest episodes if you are a serious show watcher then it isn’t a problem. It’s free, minimal ads sometimes, and it stars up to date and interesting shows. I recommend checking out the cw seed app as well
Great App but missing some EPs 4/5
Downloaded the app to watch All American. Disappointed that S1 E12 was missing.
Glitchy app 1/5
The playback on this app when you’re casting to a TV is very glitchy. Also, any time you skip ahead 30 seconds, they show 4+ commercials. Just go ahead and rewatch an episode from the beginning instead of trying to find your place (because half the time, it doesn’t save your spot).
Broken app 1/5
This app doesn’t work any longer whatsoever on iPhones. All you get is a spinning wheel like symbol, as if it’s trying to load. Yet you wait and you still get nothing but the spinning wheel like like symbol.
Never works 1/5
The app never works
This video cannot be played 1/5
Trouble in trying to play any tv series
Waste of time 1/5
Worst app ever!! Always freezes and shuts off
It won’t let me see any earlier episodes of season 3 for Riverdale!!!
The app is okay 3/5
I love the fact that I can watch my shows whenever I want... but when there is an ad and I have my AirPods in and I take them out when I put them back in the ad doesn’t play it doesn’t let me pause or anything then I have to close the app and open it back up just to watch ads all over again. It gets kind of tedious after a while....
Needs work 2/5
By Jackie Fries
This app is simply terrible. Whenever the commercials come on, you cannot pause them or if you click out of the app (it will then pause) but if you still are on a commercial there’s no way for you to press play. You must close the app and go back in. It’s really quite frustrating. The only thing it’s good at is having episodes from the CW, which is the app’s most basic job.
By king tachalla
I got this app because I’m a big Arrow-verse fan and I love riverdale and other very shows and the took to long to get to Netflix. The playback still doesn't start back at the correct place even after the newest update
By Iv redc15
I have the xfinity cable and all the river dale episodes of season three are only 4 7 11-15 and that’s what is on my tv I was hoping for all the episode I didn’t even bother to watch an episode
App used to be good 3/5
By No bookmark button on iPad
I had this app on my old iPad mini 2, but had to upgrade cause most of my apps weren’t working because of new updates. So now that CW updated their app, I’ve been hating it. The old layout, where it could be in horizontal mode, was way better than the new design. And I’ve missed some episodes of Arrow, due to not watching them, but now that I am able to watch the show, I can’t watch the current season because it doesn’t have all the episodes. I can watch up to episode 8, but then skips the rest and then shows the latest 2 episodes, 14/15. And the pc website doesn’t work anymore.
Freezes , and starts from beginning 1/5
By none of your business xavier
Anytime you go to watch a show you haven’t finished you press continue and it starts from the beginning, then you have to go through all the commercial breaks to get to your part, and a lot of the time it freezes and you have to exit out of it and start the process all over again . FIX!
I love using the app, except that every time I have to leave the app then go back to it, it’ll say do you want to restart or continue so I choose continue but it restart the whole episode anyway and won’t let me go back to my place.
the shows don’t show up
Still having Playback Errors 3/5
Still having Playback Errors even though it was supposedly fixed?
Why do you have to delete episodes after can you fix that please 🙏🏽🙏🏽
Need work in Cast 3/5
I love the CW app but i cant cast it to my smart tv only to chromcast and i hate to be using my chromcast i prefer my smart tv cast.. need work in that part thats why i dont give 5
Fix the app already 3/5
Overall the app is ok. The thing that makes it awful however is when the ads play and you swipe down on your phone to look at notifications, and then return to watching the ads, the whole app freezes. This happens only when the ads are playing. Another reason why ads are so frustrating and why this app is profoundly flawed.
Too many bugs 1/5
Replay last 10 seconds on Apple tv turns off cc. Then I backed out of the video, and when I started it again, it started me back at the beginning. The app is too picky about fast forwarding with no good work around for these bugs. When I did get it to the right place, it played two sets of commercials.
In the iPhone app, the app stopped responding during a commercial.
Not working 5/5
I’m not in my home town and the cw app would not work. The shows are not loading
I can’t watch old episodes 1/5
By Pizza. Toppings
I know it says latest episodes but I can’t find the flash episodes anywhere but here but it’s just the latest ones. I don’t understand why the can have the old ones too maybe even just back a season at least. So now I have to wait till May to watch it on Netflix because they have the seasons of the shows that they air
This app doesn’t even open 🙄🤦🏾♀️
I love this app 5/5
By poop my chicken
I love this app because it haves my favorite show river dale
This app is bad. I tried to like it. I gave it tons of chances but it’s so unstable. It freezes and crashes a lot. Be careful not to accidentally touch the screen during a commercial or it will freeze and you have to restart the app. It won’t play where you left off.
Stuck on pause 4/5
Whenever i exit the app on an ad, it sometimes doesn’t play anymore, but overall it’s a awesome app
Great app until it wasn’t. 3/5
I had this app for almost a yr and I worked fine. I upgraded to a new iPad Pro and it takes 5 mins to load a video then it stops working 2 mins into the episode.. I’m dying here. I need to watch my shows lol.. please fix it!
Since the latest update, video playback Restart acts like Continue 4/5
I need my Flash West-Allen on repeat. Soooo good.
Please fix the playback issue.
By Now has lots of likes
This app is only good because it helps me watch my favorite show for free. The amount of ads and the fact that all of the ads are the same every time is horrible. Also if you accidentally swipe up or down during an ad and it pauses, there is no way to unpause it and you have to close the app!
Good app but annoying and super buggy 1/5
Does developers even test things? Does the staff even watch their own shows on this or stream it to Chromecast? Don’t try to skip ahead 1 min. No the app will get angry with ya Chromecast and go back to the beginning. Don’t try to skip forward after that either. No. The app will play so many commercials you’ll quick. Oh yea. Don’t tell your google home to go back 30 seconds cause you wasn’t paying attention that one part in the show on your Chromecast either. The app will just start it over.
Great App 5/5
No problems using this app. Love watching arrow and the flash. Enjoy the content that’s provided and videos play amazingly. No issues or problems with app. Sometimes the ads even skip. Another plus. But yeah I rather see the ads.
What happened? 5/5
What happen? I just went to open my app and it was closed. It was great to have because it was the only way I can watch Supernatural.
I don't like this app 1/5
Every time I click on an episode I have to sit and wait for it to load for what feels like hours and the I never get to watch the episode I want to.
It keeps crashing 4/5
The app itself is really great because I get to catch up on my favorite shows but it always crashes like midway into the show which really kills my vibe. I also can’t take the captions off, I click the cc on the corner of my screen but it doesn’t even give me options. Cool shows though.
Add ..... 4/5
The CW needs to add the Goldbergs because it’s my favorite show
What 🤔 4/5
This app is so good accept the first three episodes of Riverdale season 3 aren't on herreer
When you try to pause the video when it’s on an Ad it will completely stop playing the video. When you try to resume the episode, it will take you back minutes from where you actually are making you watch more Ads. So in all you should use the CW on computer or just watch the episode when it airs.
Very bad 1/5
Every time I open it it has to freeze for half a minute and when I have 4 bars of wifi the shows stop for a minute and never work when you try to resume the show after closing the app.
Doesn’t let you watch other episodes 🙄 2/5
By cool chesse
It doesn’t let me watch other episodes so let’s say you missed an episode and another episode comes up and that episode you missed you can’t watch anymore because they only let you watch 5 latest shows and that isn’t really the best it’s actually really bad so its a good app over all but I mean it’s just not the right app I guess 🤷🏽♀️
Best App in my Opinion 5/5
Great app I mostly watch the flash for when a new season comes out. In the episode there is mostly only one ad I love watching the flash I’m a huge fan I just redownloaded it since I’m on a road trip to Arizona. Keep up the good work 👍
One star 1/5
This app is great for watching free shows but I’m a person that gets frustrated VERY easily and they have sooo many adds and they play the same ones over and over again it’s very annoying
Needs to support features for the iPad 1/5
I’ve been using this app for a while but it needs to support features for the iPad. I should be able to hit the home button while watching something and have a window pop out of what I was watching so I can go to other apps without it pausing the show.
Good but... 4/5
It’s really good but I’d really appreciate it if you could watch it from the beginning if one would wish to, but there isn’t such an option, and for that reason I’m, unfortunately, out
By donkey faniel
I often pause the ads on accident and there is no way to press play so i have to keep on restarting the app every time it happens. Im currently binge watching charmed and it has happened like 5 times
