Please do something about this
So I saw this app on Snapchat and I thought it would be pretty cool to download and do this with my friends. I went to the App Store and searched up Airtime and it popped up. I use an I-Pod Touch and I know some apps aren’t compatible with I-Pod Touch. So whenever I download an app I look at the compatibility. I noticed that this app says it’s compatible with I-Pod Touch so I downloaded it exited to do this with my friends. The moment I launch the app it shows a really cool start screen. Right after that it asks for my phone number and on I-Pod Touch you don't have a phone number. You use Email instead. I was scrolling through the reviews and I saw someone with the same problem as me and you guys replied saying it was for security reasons to make sure it’s you. You can still text with I-Pod Touch but you have an email instead of phone number making it still possible to verify that it’s you through text. Other then that it looks like a pretty cool app. Thanks for reading this and I hope you can do something about it.
And I thought I was the laziest person?????
For the first two movies that I was broadcasting, the app worked perfectly. It made life really fun. Then when attempting to watch the third movie in a row this app stopped using all sound. No communication was possible which means many witty comments were lost to the void that is time and space. This could have been saved by the messaging system, but unfortunately someone was too lazy to add notifications. I felt like the teenage girl who gets left on read and sends too many messages in a row. Also, to add on to my inner turmoil, y’all decided to play Rango instead of Paranormal Activity 4. Now don’t get me wrong Rango is great, but I was looking to kick it with my homies and watch some scary tv. And it wouldn’t have been such an issue if IT HAD NOT STARTED PLAYING IN THE MIDDLE OF MY MOVIE. now I’ve recommended this app to many a person, and I would love to continue to do so, but unfortunately I will not be doing so if there are not changes made to the programming. Thank you for reading this slew of words that I typed in a Mountain Dew fueled rage.
needs LOTS of improvement...

Ok, so I'm gonna get right to the point. Everything’s great except the AWFUL video and sound quality even when I’m connected to WiFi and I have 4 bars. Texting works fine, but sometimes when I try going live my friends get notifications but they don’t see or hear me. I often talk to my friend and it feels like a very one sided conversation, then she says “Hey it says ur here but why aren’t u going live?” That’s when I realize that I’ve been talking to myself the whole time. You guys SERIOUSLY need to make some MAJOR improvements, bc the only thing that has been keeping us from deleting it and downloading Houseparty is bc the other app doesn’t work at our school and I couldn’t find any other group chat apps. PLEASE create a new update, because not being able to actually chat with other people kind of defeats the purpose of having this app.
Needs work on movie selections
I would first off like to say that this app is awesome, especially while in quarantine. You get to watch movies while FaceTiming your friends. The problem that I would like to discuss is the movies/ shows. While looking for a movie I noticed almost all the movies I looked for they didn’t have or it would be a trailer for the movie or a playlist which I don’t need. The movies/tv shows I looked for and they didn’t have included A Quite Place, which is an old movie so I was surprised when I didn’t see the movie. I also couldn’t find movies like bird box, all the bright places, what happened to Monday, Valentine’s Day, the last summer, escape room, and hunger games. I looked at the movie section and there seemed to be only 20 movies! It didn’t make sense that they had the movie Shrek which is an old movie but had SOME new movies but not all of them.
Good concept, but disappointed
Airtime is fairly easy to use and very enjoyable when no problems occur. However, there are many instances in which the video does not load for some people while others are able to watch the video, which is annoying and can result in a couple of people not being able to watch and enjoy content for the entire session. Additionally, the muting of the video being played whenever something is being added to the queue is annoying. There are constant crashes, some members don’t even have the queue option next to the videos they search up (meaning if they were to add something it would eject the current video playing), and the app is just constantly having problems that are hard to ignore since they happen on a regular basis. Other than that everything else is excellent and the stickers/calling features are the most enjoyable aspects of the app. It has a lot of potential but it is just frustrating since it barely works.
To many notifications!
I am not sure if it’s just something that’s happened to me but there are soooo many notifications on this app.I’ve had this app for about a month now and it’s pretty fun. I certainly don’t use it as much as I use other social media, but it’s fun to use once in a while. I downloaded the app and started a “room” With some of my friends,Immediately after I closed the app and walked away from my phone for a few minutes I came back and noticed that there were three notifications from Airtime in the five minutes that I was away from my phone. I didn’t think much of it until a couple days later when I noticed that air time had been sending me tons of notifications. The notifications started to slow down after a while, but it’s still kind of annoying. If you’re going to get this app do not enable notifications. Other then that is it fun.
App is amazing!
I really do love this app and it just keeps improving. I first installed it a year ago and it just keeps getting better and better. The UI has improved a lot since I first installed the app a year ago. The app was very unstable then and I deleted it. Recently, i decided to give it another try and I’ve been very satisfied. The app is way more stable but still has some minor bugs. I do think it could be a lot faster. I’m hooping the developers will continue to improve this app because it has a lot of potential. The UI still needs to be more simplified and material like. If you want the app to blow up that’s what needs to be done. But like I said I still love to use this app and I’m gonna continue to use it. Fantastic concept and keep up the good work and the updates.
Not as great as we thought
My friend and I were happy to see an app that perfectly fit out interest, but the constant issues with one person not being able to hear the video when the other plays it, the audio quality bugging out, occasional echoing occurring, and much more. The intention of the app was clever, but it needs some serious reworking. It’s too sensitive to the point where when we try to adjust the volume, pause the video, or full screen, it acts as if we swiped to another video. On top of that, the video is knocked out of the playlist once swept off of. The playlist is also sometimes completely deleted if both people leave when other times it stays. At its lowest setting for volume, the audio is sometimes extremely loud still as well. With several audio issues, the app ruins the experience we are trying to have.
So Cute (please read)
I know, how can an app be cute? Well first of all, the app has done some amazing updates since 2016. I use to think this app was trash but I came back in 2018 and it's like my favorite app to keep in touch with all the people I have met. You have your own friend circle and it's just amazing. It was so adorable how it asked me how to rate the app, I just had to share with review readers. It's especially great for 13 year olds, such as my self. The way how it asked for me was " Hey -your name-, we're bad at flirting so we'll cut to the chase, we like you, same? And you get to friend zone them or rate. It's so much better than seeing the everyday "rate 5 stars, remind me later", when you know you're not going to rate it because too many apps ask
Every couple minutes while i’m watching a movie with my friends, the movie pauses by itself. I would not even touch my screen and it’ll just pause by itself, causing me to be a couple seconds behind. Also, whenever I pause the movie and unpause it, it only unpauses for me and not for my friends. If they were to pause it, it works for them but when it’s time to unpause the movie, it works for everyone else but me and I’m here waiting for it to be unpaused once again leaving me seconds behind the movie. It’s a great app but this is the only problem I have. Hopefully you guys can fix it please! I don’t want to delete the app and find other but this one is really great but it gets really annoying when it just pauses the movie by itself and it only happens to me and nobody else that is also watching the movie with me.
