Software Reviews and Criticism

  • By Annoyed!@#$%^&*&^%$#@!!!!!!

    Needs improvement

    They recently added a higher def recording option, which is great. Except that it costs 3 credits. (They didn’t lower the cost of low def.) It would be nice to group recordings into folders like the desktop app does. Or at least allow to sort by title or other options. Overall seems primitive. Functionality in the iPad version is lacking on other platforms. This has been ongoing for quite some time, seems like they’re not supporting all platforms equally. So much for cross platform usage. For example, downloading to iPad plays with captions. Playing from PlayOn Cloud with Roku has no captions. Answer from support? Download to iPad then cast to Roku. (And manage space/recordings.) Those extra steps for every show I watch? Not feasible. I was paying for the service for a while, to support the developers. But the tone deaf and snotty support I received on multiple tickets led me to stop. I’ll just use the free account with paid credits. Since I need to go through all those steps, so it’s not a simple solution after all.

    Great app, would like a few enhancements

    Great app providing a useful service at a low cost with easy functionality. Would love two basic enhancements if anyone out there is listening. First, start recordings where they left off when watching something in more than one sitting. This happens if I have to close the app for a few minutes but if it’s a longer amount of time (say, start in morning then resume in evening) the app defaults to start the recording from the beginning. Second, sorting of recordings should be A to Z, not Z to A. For example, if I download 5 episodes of a show the 5th episode is first by default. They allow you to switch the order but you have to do it every time you go to your recordings which is kind of annoying. Great app overall that I’ve recommended to quite a few folks since using it myself.

    Limited internet but still want your shows?

    Recently moved to an area with no high-speed connection and limited cell/data service. This app has been a lifesaver. Almost bit the bullet to get satellite..but sure glad I didn’t. Simply record the shows to the cloud and download them to your phone when on wifi. It’s a bit costlier than I’d prefer, but still far cheaper than going with a 2 year contract for satellite, and miss out on some of the shows that are streaming only. It’s a bit misleading that they say more recordings are only 20c each, when in reality most are going to pay $5 for 20. Would be nice to be able to airdrop shows to family members, as you’re tied to one device, but all-in-all very much worth it.

    Just What I Needed—Love It!

    I spent months trying to configure a way to record streaming content, but everything required spending a lot of money for hardware and software to create a convoluted system. I wanted a straightforward, intuitive, reliable solution. PlayOn Cloud is everything I was looking for. This app is so easy to use right out of the (figurative) box that I was up and running as soon as I logged into my subscribed services. The cost per recording is painless, and they often run specials where you can buy credits in bulk at even more reasonable prices. On the rare occasions that I’ve needed support, the team has been amazing. Their initial response is fast, and they keep me apprised of their progress as they work things through (the streaming services can be idiosyncratic). They generously share knowledge with me to increase my proficiency with the app. I’ve never experienced this level of communication for any other product. If you want your streaming content always available seamlessly, this app is for you.

    Pretty Good, but Cloud Downloader needs work

    The app functions pretty well so far to record. The audio is great, and getting 1080p is awesome. The only problem I have is actually getting the darn recordings off it. They offer a VERY crude "cloud downloader" desktop app that works as a companion to this one. It downloads the recordings to your PC in batch. It is buggy though and, crucially, DOES NOT ALLOW DOWNLOAD LOCATION CHANGES. Crazy. Unchangeable download location for a utility that moves 1-3GB files. Why?????? Even the most basic windows app allows you to decide where to save a file. So yes - that means it only downloads cloud recordings to my main OS hard drive, which has 10GB of space left, while an 8TB external drive sits nearby, idle and useless. Until I can actually get the recordings down from the cloud in an efficient manner - it's 3 stars for me.
