Problems saving votes
I needed to enter my votes three times before they were saved. The first time, I hit the Save Votes button and it just dimmed and gave no acknowledgement (when I went to the Video tab and back to the Votes tab, my votes were gone). The second time, I hit the Save Votes button and the whole window ‘paled’, like a thin white piece of paper was over it (and when returning, my votes were gone again). The third time I entered my votes, I received the Thanks For Voting acknowledgment, and my entered votes were remembered. (At least I had written down my votes before initially entering them.) And why does the Apple App Store show reviews from two years ago (and not note that it is from an earlier version)?

Not a good app right now
It took a few times of opening and closing the app to get to the log in screen, then once I got there, it took a couple times for me to be able to sign in. Once in, the design of the app needs work, put clips into categories by episode. Then it would be helpful if you could choose any contestant (like you can right now and get their social media) and have all their performances in one place under those links. Not sure why “Fan Feed” is there but if you can add a chat where ALL signed in users can comment while voting is open that would be cool. Also if we can get notifications for when the show is gonna start and when voting opens that’d be cool. Also if we get widgets that would be cool.

iPhone 6 Plus - app just crashes on start even after reinstall & reboots.
Worked first time I downloaded & voted. Now, second episode to vote and won’t do anything. Soon as I started app, AMERICAN IDOL logo with ABC underneath comes up with all its animated shooting stars. App then just crashes & home screen appears. Tried repeatedly to delete, re-download, reboot, you name it. All same result. Sadly, I guess I can’t vote to keep my favorites going forward in the competition. Simply to complicated to text or call in votes so I guess you’ve lost a fan’s votes. So unfair to these incredibly talented performers putting it all on the line each week to achieve their dreams. Disney & ABC...shame on you not fixing this app & having it in the pristine shape the performers are in. They deserve so much better...& you should be delivering in spades like they do to support them. FIX IT!!

Glitchy after the show is on
I love this app and all, but there are a few things I want it to be fixed. The first thing is, after you see all the contestants on TV and you might’ve missed a few you try to get on the app to see the people you missed and it loads for a second but then it glitches you out of the app. I asked some friends to try to do the same thing and they said the same thing happened to them. But what I like about this app is that the voting is super easy you just click a few buttons of how much you want them and then save your votes and you’re good! This is a great app but it can be better.

Good app but slight issue
Great app I’m able to vote and keep track of my favorites but as of Today it started not even going past the Load screen even though earlier today it was working fine. Starts loading up and then quits. Quite frustrating hopefully it gets fixed before next week.

American Idol App
I’ve downloaded and deleted this app 3 times. Wanted to have it just for a way to cast mor votes. I’ve read where people have had problems with this app. I can’t get it to even allow me to sign up. I fill out everything but it won’t progress past the sign up page. Three times downloading app with several attempts signing up each time to me is a joke. App definitely needs work. With so many people having complaints I would think they would fix it or give up. I won’t waste my time trying again. I’ll just keep texting my 10 votes for my contestants. To be able to cast more than 10 would be nice but.

My favorite Show
I love American Idol ! It is my favorite show ever. My sister and I stay in the phone with each other the entire program! We are being judges also. We have a lot of fun. We love all the judges also! This show brings us some excitement and at a time like this, everyone needs good entertainment. Thank you, Betty House,Alabama

Idol 2018
I have been watching Idol since it’s inception and this by far had the best singers. My pick is Caleb, who has such an awesome voice. I love traditional country and he sure sang that. Maddie was good and congrats to her on her win. Didn’t think the judges would be good but they were. Can’t wait to hear Ryan say “This is American Idol” for the next new talented contestants!

ABC now has your personal info
I’ve been doing technology since DOS and this is the worst written app! No less than 7-8 steps to sign up through ABC via Facebook then confirmation through parent company Disney. Trust me you be getting Disney vacation offers through your email and who knows what other personal info they now have. Clicking decline on emails means nothing they have your info to market now. Great way to ruin something fun. And my wife’s version for voting looks different than mine and we downloaded at the same time!

The app works great.
I don’t understand why people are saying the app doesn’t work. It works perfectly 100% of the time. The app isn’t broken. Great user interface. I would recommend this app to all my friends and family. The app doesn’t appear broken. No problems at all.

Never comes back from commercials
I can never get the show to come back after commercials. Every time it starts a commercial it leaves 2 seconds on the show, so when it does come back it shows 2 more seconds then restarts the commercials. It normally takes me 3-4 hours of trying to watch the show to get through the whole thing. They only way to get it to sort of work is to close the app at every new commercial break and restart it. It’s honestly the worst.

Need an apt that works
I can’t seem to get this app open to tonight so I missed voting. I also don’t like the new system of having to watch the show and vote. I usually have to work late, so I tape the show and watch when I get home. Voting should last till at least midnight or later. This is limiting who can vote. Also some of my older friends liked it when they could call in. Not everyone has a smart phone or comfortable using it to vote. Votes just should ‘t be limited to only some. Sad I missed voting...

App keeps closing
I love American Idol and love the ease of use with the app. Just wondering if I’m the only one having trouble with the app? I try to go into the app to vote, it acts like it is going to open and then completely closes the system overloaded? Is it my phone? Is there a bug?

App seems to have broken down
All was fine with Idol App until this morning. When I tried to open it, it closed immediately. I deleted and then downloaded - same problem. I did vote last night and am wondering if the app broke down. Otherwise I was enjoying it and was able to view past performances and vote. Sorry for the two stars, but the app isn’t working at the moment.

Not only were my votes too late to be counted (there’s no way that Ryan was handed the last commercial break results) but the last commercial break was the ONLY time my votes went through. Then this morning I wanted to listen to an Idol’s song... no dice. The app won’t even load. It shows the logo, fades black, and closes itself. Crappy app. Will delete and vote via text which is what I should have done in the first place!!!

I got the app thinking that it would be fun. But what happened was that I opened the app and tried to make a account and I filled out all the information and it said that I wouldn’t make a account because I didn’t fill out all the information I double checked it before I hit submit. So I deleted the app and redownloaded it to see if I could make a new account it wouldn’t let me though.

Unfair Voting
The rules allow 30 votes. 10 online, 10 via the app, and 10 via text. After submit 20 online and via text, going to the app, you’re asked to log in, and then told you’ve already voted. This could change the outcome of this entire contest. Seems very unfair. My favorite (Laci) should have 10 more from me and 10 more from other family members. If it’s only 20 total - then say that, but if not, please fix this app ASAP.

Good App
This app is great and makes voting easy. However, it is difficult to create an account in the app. If the birthdate is accidentally put in as someone under 18, the app locks you out and doesn't allow you to make an account at all.

This app is a mess
It took forever to set up an account, it redirects you too many times then once I was logged in, I voted for some of the contestants then was kicked out before I could save the votes. When I logged back in, all my votes were lost and I had to do it over again. When I tapped the “save votes” button, I had to prove I was not a robot!!!! SERIOUSLY?!!! I’ve never had this problem with the Voice app, not bothering with Idol again.

I can’t for the life of me understand why they let Trevor go and kept some of the ones they did. I know a lot about music and am very disappointed in all the judges and am frankly wondering if they have the musical knowledge To be judges on this show. I Am not impressed. I loved it in the beginning but I see so many mistakes! I am not even interested in watching anymore and not as big of a fan of judges as I was even as singers! Not good choices!!

App won’t work
App would not even open all evening and still not up today. Tried deleting and downloading again and it still won’t work at all. It starts up for a second and then cuts off and goes back to my regular screen. Obviously, could not vote. I also think voting during the show and having the results the same night as a bad idea.

Time and time again I tried to vote as I always had and I couldn’t get the App to work. I wonder how many other people had this same problem and how the viewers who could not vote may have changed the outcome of the eliminations. Personally, I believe that JERAMIAH LLOYD HARMON should NOT have been in the “at risk” group thereby causing the judges to eliminate him!!! And while I am mentioning the flaws affecting the contestants eliminations, I also believe the judges should be given MORE TIME IN WHICH TO DELIBERATE when a contestant’s future is so seriously affected! If these issues are not rectified by next Season, without a doubt, American Idol WILL LOSE a large amount of viewers....

Terrible for iPad!
The app doesn’t rotate from portrait to landscape orientation, yet the main screen is in portrait and the videos all play in landscape! It makes no sense, either do it one way or the other. Or, better yet, make it rotate no matter which way someone wishes to use the app, whether portrait or landscape orientation, they can. One star is all this gets from me. Really poor design. 👎🏻

Crashing app
I agree with the first person. This app keeps on crashing so I can’t keep my favorites from going home. Let’s hope that redownloading it works. It’s a real shame because these amazing people are missing votes and some people are missing out in some great features in this app.

I have tried for days to sign in via my phone. No matter what I try it continues to reject my user name and password. I tried changing my password and the link they emailed me goes to error. I can log in and access American Idol on my PC with no issues. So why does the same log in info fail from my phone. This App is worthless.

I love the ease of using the app to vote, however I noticed in the 2023 season and now in the 2024 as well, that when there are 12 contestants and less votes are not accepted by the app. Today the app list Kako as a contestant and he was voted off last night.
