5.0 out of 5 stars Great!! 6 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase
Even better than the PC version. The app of Crunchyroll has two ads at the beginning of each episode instead of scattered throughout, and none of that annoying buffering. Guilt free anime viewing thanks to this being a legal site, lots if new shows with great subs.
For the picky, this is sub only, no dubs, and some of the early posted episodes suffer from pixaling and sometimes out of sinc audio, but all this English subbed anime for free, who's complaining?!!
If you're an anime fan just get it!

4.0 out of 5 stars A good app, but lacks a very primary feature 5 April 2014
By Rachel
Verified Purchase
I use this app on a near daily basis and so far has served me very well. There is a good variety of different anime to watch, as well as Japanese/Korean dramas - a rare but welcome feature for an anime hosting website to have. There are 4 adverts throughout each episode you watch, however the 4th advert pops up just as the credit scenes start rolling so can be avoided without missing any of the actual episode. Another surprisingly handy feature is a small icon display for each episode of an anime. I admittedly almost always forget which episode I'm on if only given the episode number, so the icon is a nice reminder that usually works in kick-starting your memory of what you have already seen.

The one problem I have with this app is the lack of a search bar. It seems to completely lack this primary function. Some anime I have watched with this app contained a fair amount of scrolling to find each time I wanted to watch it, which is a waste of time and effort on the users behalf. Also it makes it difficult to find an anime you have watched before or have been told to watch, as looking for an anime title that isn't a very recent crunchyroll upload is like trying to find a needle in a haystack.

Having said that, the lack of a search bar encourages you to watch random anime on the pages and this has actually forced me to come across some great titles I would have went past otherwise.

As a free app, It is worth the download.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for Kindle Fire HD! :D. 3 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase
I'm currently in love with Crunchyroll, being a laptop Crunchyroll user. It's easy to find the anime that I want to watch, and the app always seems to be fresh and up to date with all the new anime releases that I want to watch.
I don't even think there's anything more to say, except that it can sometimes take a while for the actual video itself to load and can sometimes cause a lag - although I suppose this depends on your Internet Provider and connection speed and so on.

Overall, an excellent app for anime and drama lovers! :D.

4.0 out of 5 stars the ads spoil the enjoyment 28 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase
Update: I've just sat through about 9 ads to watch one episode. Some I could skip past but a few i had watch right through. Not only that but once the episode is playing I can't seem to stop it, if it's not to my taste. I can only scroll to the end of the episode and then watch all the ads before I can choose something else. The worst thing is its the same adverts over and over. I don't know how other people are getting so few ads.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing 6 July 2014
Verified Purchase
This app does not work on my kindle fire HD.When I press the app I get a menu that includes drama and anime but when I touch either one I get a message saying it's loading and then it just takes me back to the menu or throws me out back to my carousel.I'm very disappointed with this app.

5.0 out of 5 stars wow 4 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase
This has to be the best app I have gotten yet. You can chose and watch loads of different animes. Although there aren't all of my fav animes there are a few. You also have to pay for some of the more popular one. But please bare in mind THIS IS A FREE APP it is well worth it :P

1.0 out of 5 stars so annoying!!! 20 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase
The ads keep crashing not only the app but my whole device. If you click pause the play bar won't disappear and keeps flickering on and off, which is annoying since it covers the subtitles. Sometimes playback won't resume once the ads are finished and there is no resume playing option so even if you can exit out of the app without everything crashing you then have to go back through all the ads to arrive back where you were before. I would pay for premium, since I like the actual site, but in all honesty I won't pay premium for such a poor quality product I'm not sure I trust to play properly.
