Allow us to comment and talk with you guys through the app... also make a dedicated iPad app. Also every time I pause it... the app had to reload and I have to find the podcast and press play again... super inconvenient when I’m at work...
Great app for a great news service. Home of progressives!
Love tyt but the app needs work. Wasn’t always like this, but so frustrating. Every time it’s paused for more than 10-15 seconds I have to reopen the app find what I was listening to and let it reload. With very slow latency on satellite internet this takes a least a minute to restart a podcast. Missing the days of already downloaded Apple Podcast app.
I always get a black screen when I leave the app with a video playing in the background and return. Instead of being able to watch the video, all I get is black screen with audio. Didn’t used to happen. Maybe a glitch? Help!
Do you want to hear about the news before major media covers it? These guys are normally a day ahead on major political issues because they understand and care about what is actually going on. They understand what will be news tomorrow on how it will impact everyday people. They are progressive. I recommend listening to the damage report daily to learn about the news that will be white washed in the New York Times and Washington Post the follow day or two.
What a piece of crap biased “NEWS”. I honor your right to freedom of press.. I’ll also utilize my freedom of speak and tell you how awful and damaging your clearly agenda driven drivel is be touted as journalism. You should resign. Go to Epoch News if you want real journalism based on facts! Or don’t. The choice is ultimately yours. Educate yourself.
Ever since I installed the last update, the app has been crashing/losing data. I will pause what I’m watching, minimize the app for literally a second, and when I reopen it, I have to navigate all the way back to where I was. This never happened before. You literally cannot leave for a second without losing your spot. Time in video is still saved, so you can restart from the same place, but you have to find the video all over again every time.
I have a special place in my heart for TYT. I was never into politics before watching them and once I found them I watched them every day. Most TV news outlets are biased in some form or other but will swear they are objective. I actually really appreciate that TYT admits their progressive biased and that they truly believe that progressive values are the best solution for everyone. They got me excited about news and world events like I never thought I could be because they actually are passionate and put heart into what they do. Would always recommend them as the best progressive news source. My only criticism: after watching since 2016 I’ve noticed they’ll make fun of Christianity or belittle it every so often. It already feels a little isolating to be a Christian progressive, but I really do think you can have strong progressive values while subscribing to any religion. I don’t think you need to be an atheist to be a progressive. With that in mind I just wish TYT was at least a little more religiously neutral/welcoming so they don’t alienate certain viewers that are strong progressives of different faiths. Other than that, my favorite shows to watch are the main TYT show and the damage report, and my favorite hosts are John, Emma and Cenk because I like their cool snarky personalities and Cenk’s relative objectiveness when looking at the other side.
Love that I can download things for watching later. The app is convenient in that way. The app doesn’t allow itself to be paused in the background longer than about 30 seconds which is annoying because I used to be able to pause it in the background for more than a half hour. Now it closes and I have to go back down to where I was because I don’t download EVERYTHING I watch on the network. The app also doesn’t have any like “recently/last watched feature which would be convenient since I will miss episodes and have to scroll down a bit to get to where I’d like to watch. The downloads don’t save your place like the episodes you watch straight from their posting under the show it is. OBVIOUSLY annoying. Sometimes a post of a show will be too short or hours long past what it was intended and they never fix it. Happens once every couple months but then it won’t allow me to download a post of 6 hours of a show even though the show was only 2-3 hours long. Never gets fixed. It’s convenient because I can have it in my pocket, but those seem like simple enough fixes to take care of over time. I’m a paying member so some of this stuff seems like “the least you could to is check your work” since I’m paying to consume it.
Thank you for keeping me sane for the last 10 years
