App Reviews

  • Love the app until the recent update

    By Not enough but okay
    I have been using Twitch app for about two years now, and have always loved it overall. I think they have always been getting better, adding more and more to the mobile app with the addition of mobile subscribing, the ability to double tap for chat, mobile bits and all. But with this last update I’m very disappointed. I had fallen IN LOVE with the ability to swipe from one streamer on my feed to another and then back to check between them and see how they were doing in game etc. but I am extremely disappointed that it is no longer an option. That was part of why I liked the mobile app so much. I could go from one streamer to the next seamlessly and then back again after a few minutes to enjoy both and get into whoever was currently in a game or who I was in the mood for. Now that I have to go back out and minimize a stream to scroll and find the other streamer then do the same again to go back is downright a decline and a step back from such an amazing feature. Over all the app still is good, allowing me to watch my favorite streamers with ease and interact with the chat fairly well but this feature was a must have and now I’m not sure I will be on the app as much. I’m very disappointed that they would take such a great feature with ease of use out of their app.
  • Unstable

    By Sarastartree
    While it often works and is still a very valid, not at all half-baked alternative to the website, it has been fairly unstable for me since day one. I’m nowhere near a frequenter of Twitch, just occasionally watch the streams of people like Vinesauce and Vargskelethor, but it’s become harder to handle since the new iOS update that changed the layout of the menu you get when you double-click the home button. Whenever I decide to play the stream in the corner of my screen, it pauses, and sometimes simply disappears. Today has been one of the worst days I’ve used it, as I can only spend, say, a minute on the app before it freezes up and forces me out. This isn’t the first time this has happened, either. Maybe the solid third time, and I’m fully unable to access the streams for more than maybe 20 seconds before it quits out. I’ve tried resetting my iPad and redownloading the app, but to no avail. I’m certain it’s an issue with the servers at this point, and a very pesky one. Please fix this as soon as possible, so I can actually use your app. Thank you.
  • Missing Key Functionality

    By Krahnin
    So, no issue with streaming performance, but either A) there is a LOT missing from the app, or B) it’s super un-intuitive and these things are impossible to find. Missing features include: - The ability to subscribe to a channel via mobile. - The ability to see existing subscriptions and when they expire. - The ability to change your profile picture. - The ability to easily get to a channel’s home page if they are live. (I am forced to go into the live video, often causing blaring audio even when my phone is silenced, and then have to poke around to find a way to get to the channel’s home screen and THEN I have to terminate the still playing video). - A means to set subscriptions to auto-renew. (Unable to find this on the web version either - maybe just a missing feature?). All in all, forcing me to log into the site severely inhibits the app’s on the fly functionality. I’d think these item would be a priority as the easier it is to manage things, the more likely people are to download/open the app. While not a huge amount of competition in this market, it just takes one competitor doing it better to start stealing people away. If these features are missing, I’d recommend adding them. If they are just hard to find, I’d recommend either re-thinking the layout or adding an overlay tutorial that walks through functionality for users. Something that launches initially for brand new users and can be launched at will for people needing a refresher.
  • Lack of Customizable Access

    By WorfySmarf
    The Twitch website gives you a lot of access towards your customization and profile editing. You can change your chat color, change your name and or capitalization, change your profile pic, etc. This app, however, doesn’t give you access to most of the offers the website has. It would be nice to be able to do certain things on the app instead of always having to rely on the website such as customizing your profile and being able to subscribe to channels by viewing them instead of having to use chat commands. Sometimes I want to support a streamer but I can’t because they do not have a set chat command. Overall, I’d appreciate it if the app would have more accessibility just like the website instead of it feeling like it’s taking away your access and ability.
  • Great idea, horrific experience

    By Tomatitto291
    I absolutely love live streams, and twitch in general. I’ve been on the twitch bandwagon for longer than most, but can’t help to notice these extremely common, frustrating bugs. I will play live streams or VODs, and the audio will just go out. I used to be able to close out stream, change video quality, or close out app to fix it, but that is no longer the case. The only fix I have been able to find as of late is to completely uninstall and reinstall the app. I am now doing this 10+ times per day, and that’s unacceptable. If this issue isn’t solved by the end of this week, I’m just going to go watch someone else re upload one of your creator’s livestreams. Which mean that’s neither you, or the streamer you pretend to help will be making any money off of me, and I will cancel my multiple subscriptions.
  • Feature recommendation: SWIPE

    By fingersteam
    I enjoyed the swipe left/right feature available in previous versions of the Twitch App used to change between channels. Having experienced the evolution of the Twitch iOS App over the years, the swipe feature became one of my favorites and I’m sure it will return at some point. No bugs or problems to mention. Subscribing to a channel within the App is probably one of the last major features yet to be added. Now that bits are allowed subscriptions seems like an obvious next step. Glad to see the pinch zoom feature returned. I end up reflexively trying to use it from time to time, so it’s nice to have that seamless feel to the App continue on in later versions.
  • not good enough

    By Ammmirr12345
    Despite all the bad reviews that I’ve seen in internet about twitch app, I think it works fine. It has only crashed once or twice since I downloaded it (about a year ago) and I like it because browsing here is so much faster than the site and of course, unlike the “mobile friendly” interface, this one actually works! but still there is space for development, you can’t customize your account nearly as much as you can in the site, and you still can’t subscribe to your favorite channels or check your active subscriptions which is very important. I think what everyone’s complaining about isn’t that this doesn’t have good features, but it’s that this app still misses some of the very normal and expected features. Hurry up twitch!

    By Leososa123
    The app is overall great, but they need to add the option to DELETE messages in the chat room. Instead of always timing people out or just straight banning. I mod for a channel and sometimes I want to delete their message as a warning, but I only have the option to time them out or ban them, and sometimes that isn’t necessary. So please, people at twitch take this into consideration as some people do moderate channels from the their phone sometimes. I happen to be on twitch exclusively through mobile at the moment and maybe their are other people to might agree? Other than that I have no real complaints. The interface is nice. But I would really love to see that small feature included when you press on someone’s name. Thank you.
  • 👎👎🏻👎🏼👎🏽👎🏾👎🏿👎🏾👎🏽👎🏼👎🏻👎

    By N3h3m
    I found out about the app threw a Facebook live stream...(A FACEBOOK LIVE STREAM THAT WORKED)....after joining the app I tried watching the live stream but not only would the live stream not work but NOT ONE... NOT ONE video or live stream on the app would work!!! The only time anything worked is when I left the app & the audio played. This was my first time hearing about twitch, my first time trying to use twitch & well... yeah I now get why it’s the first time! I’d love to think it’s just a malfunction but after searching online & reading other reviews on here I can now tell it’s not just a random malfunction & on that note the account I made will get deleted given the app & website are up so you can watch videos & live streams yet none will load or work so that you can watch them. . . BTW clicking on a star is bothering me & if I could I’d be giving the app a negative three stars a long with this review...
  • Buggy, with no updates.

    By Jakely2dizzle
    TLDR Ads bad. But not cause ads, because bad numbers. Twitch continues to add new, convenient features without fixing their buggy video system. While I don’t mind getting hours of content for one measly ad (despite them being horrible pandering, playing over and over,) having to watch an ad on a video I was already watching just because I swiped a little too hard feels harsh. Losing my progress on my video just because one ad played is infuriating, especially when it happens over and over, and is even more frustrating for users with short term memory loss. Two (2) other things that cause this bug (along with others:) Closing Twitch, auto going into Audio Mode, reopening twitch and losing the play/pause button, meaning you have to close and come back, with a 1/3 chance of actually getting your progress back. Changing quality when the video won’t get past the frozen screen it shows you. (By the way, Auto starts in the highest quality and is pointless if you’re looking for what will work with shoddy internet. Because it doesn’t ever start!) Haven’t ever used your popular stream tabs because I only watch content I actually want to see. Probably bugs there too. Sometimes I wish Hitbox took off.
