Pros and cons of DIRECTV app for iPhone and iPad

DIRECTV app good for

I love that I can watch on my Phone and on my Tablet live and recorded shows!
Im a truck driver and for whatever reason my login wasnt working. I logged in the other day and; YES! My DVR stuff,Live news, games you name it...Im in People, and loving every minute...
The only thing I dont like is when I check the guide, like the movies, its hard to remember where you were when I go back in the guide
My whole family absolutely loves being able to watch their favorite shoes on the go.
Better then bright house only thing I miss is anime network. Also they should update the layout for the app when scrolling through live TV when you click on something in it plays on a smaller box so you can continue to scroll throughout live tv you cant bc the box covers basically the whole screen.
This app is awesome!! It really is TV on the go, you can watch it anywhere on anything... made me watching my shows when I need to easier!!

Some bad moments

This app was great but has stopped working completely! I have deleted the app from my phone twice now to reload it and start over to see if it would start working, it does nothing but say on a black screen that says DIRECTV.
ur app is the absolute worst crap in the world! it doesnt work! dont waste your time with this bs!!!
Every time I try to load a local channel the app crashes. Ive done everything I can think of. The same problem on all my devices. This wasnt an issue before. So much potential to be the best entertainment app but falls short. Please fix this issue.
I would give 0 stars if I could. Live streaming never works but the app will remind you that although the program cant be streamed you can watch it on tv. Ive only been able to live stream once, and it cut out mid way through. Dont waste your time.
Been trying for a week but just crashes on att logo. Even the app support link doesnt work on iTunes.
No wonder people are getting rid of DIRECTV. This app works terrible for on demand. It plays , then makes a weird noise . When you restart it , it plays again , then makes a weird never. Repeat. Same thing. When you pause a show you have to back to the menu .. etc. youd think a company this big theyd be able to figure it out!!!!
