“Error, please try again later”
So when I’m watching my shows, I start a new episode and i finish it. There has been a couple times where I’m done watching my shows for the night and I go to bed. The next day, I go into Freeform and I try to pick up where I left off on my shows and it won’t let me watch them. This has been going on for about 2 and a half weeks now and I’m getting very frustrated with this issue because some of the shows I watch, I can’t view anywhere else because all the other TV apps don’t carry the same shows. So I’m done with Freeform until this issue has been solved. 1 star.

Very glitchy with chromecast
I use this app to cast to my television through the chromecast device. This app works fine if you watch a show from start to finish and don’t touch anything. However, if god forbid you pause or rewind, you won’t be able to watch that show again. Rewinding it makes it jump at least ten minutes AHEAD and it refuses to rewind once it starts doing that. Every time you rewind again after it’s jumped ahead, it actually starts even further ahead than the last time it decided to go in the opposite direction. If you shut down the app completely, it still remembers where you last paused ....which is where it decided to jump ahead. And that show is essentially locked at a time point you don’t want until the app forgets you ever tried to watch that show. I don’t know how long that takes because it hasn’t happened for me. You spend more time trying to get it to PLEASE EFFING REWIND than you do watching the show. As I’m writing this, I’ve wasted a half hour trying to get through a show I’d only made through 15 minutes of. So, for now, I deleted the app. I don’t have the patience for this.

What is freeform app like
I use the freeform app on an iphone 8plus. The app is easy to use, with no issues regarding playback or buffering. In fact the ONLY reason I didn’t give it 5 ⭐️ is because episodes contain ads. You earn points by watching shows with ads, which you can then exchange to watch ad free episodes. I can watch my freeform show on demand without ads... but a few episodes seem to be missing, forcing me to use the app. The app links to my television provider, so I don’t see why if it’s on demand free on my tv without ads... I have to sit thru ads on the app. The best work around for this is to have something else I’m doing at the same time (a book I’m reading, a craft project, use the ads as a bathroom break, grab a snack etc.). I can understand the need for ad revenue, without having to like ads being forced on me.

I’ve never been so irritated then when using this app
Whenever I am watching a show, the app forgets my progress in the show every single time i sit down to watch, so I constantly have to guess where I left off. To make that even more annoying, every couple minutes I have to sit through 3 minutes of commercials, making it impossible to scroll through and find my place in the show without watching ten minutes of commercials. Even if I lightly tap the screen, the progress bar will go all the way to the end of the episode and I then have to sit through more of these terrible commercials (the same ones every single time) to find where I was. Sometimes the app will even say 2 minutes of commercials, and then it will say 0 seconds left and just play another one. I am giving up on my show halfway through, and I wish I could give this app zero stars.

App needs a reform
Love the shows on FreeForm however I hate the app. I don’t know if anyone else experiences these issues but lately for shows that I have never watched, it starts the episode either in the middle of the show or near the end. No one else uses my log in so it’s just me using this app. On top of that, it’s nearly impossible to start the episode over or even just fast forward or rewind. The status bar for the episode is awkwardly at the bottom and so close to the bottom that it does even recognize when I’m trying use my finger to swipe back or forward to the point in the episode I want. I can never ever get it to go all way back to the beginning of an episode because of how the bar is placed. The furthest back I can go is 0:22. I use an IPhone 7 Plus so maybe the experience is different for others.

I love this app
This app allows you to watch your favorite shows for free all you have to do to unlock the shows is put in you cable info and if you don’t want to do that it comes with at least one free episode out of all the shows if you like Freeform and your not at home this is a simple way to watch your favorite shows on the go so if you travel a lot or don’t have time to sit and watch is on the tv then this app is great for you I would suggest to watch cloak and dagger it’s one of my favorites

No Tv Providers
The app has amazing shows and everything but the thing is that I don’t have cable. I’m in 8th grade so it’s pretty self-explanatory that I cannot afford to pay bills. So I’m just saying that most of the time people who watch shows are mostly teens, correct me if I’m wrong (didn’t do any research) if their ‘rents don’t have cable there should be an alternative option for them. No offense, but the shows and movies that someone can watch without a Tv Provider is kinda lame. So if the company could come to an agreement where if someone doesn’t have cable they can still watch good shows. I hope y’all actually look at this and take it into consideration. Thanks :)

Equally as terrible as MTV app
Never thought another app could be just as bad as the MTV app but here we are. At first i thought it was just because I was trying to cast my show on an older iPad & the first version of the Chromecast. So I decided to try it with my new phone and with my new chromecast to see if that made things better. It didn’t. Everytime the ads start usually only 2 go by and then the screen goes black and stops playing even though its still connected and my internet signal is good. Don’t waste your time with this and just cast it from the website yourself with an adblocker so you get no interruptions because its not like they’re using the money from the ads to better the app anyways. Can’t wait for my show to get cancelled or for it to finally end so I dont have to use this site again.

This app rocks👍
I love this app especially because quite a few shows got removed from Netflix and I see that they’re on here now so that’s so awesome that I can watch my shows and my favorite channel is freeform so I can watch it on my phone instead of watching it on my TV because my TV isn’t working right now so now I can watch it anywhere and anytime on my phone. But I do not like the constant adds, I understand there has to be adds. The ads are ridiculously long but besides that the ads freeform rocks there is no glitches or no difficulties with this app except for the ads so I suggest you guys get this app it’s awesome!

Awful App, cant FF, just gets stuck in a loop all the time
This app is disturbingly bad. It’s 2021 and this app might be the worst app I’ve ever used. Playing normal shows is extremely difficult. Can’t FF, can’t rewind, and it just jumps to random stages in the shows, sometimes on a 1 second loop and sometimes not. I restarted my phone, I deleted the app and re installed it, still the same issues. I’ll cast a show to my tv, it will cast properly, but then on my phone there is no way to FF, or rewind, or pause because the app still thinks there is an ad playing. How the company/person who made this app still has a job is mind blowing. It is a tremendously below par app that can’t handle simple functions. It’s embarrassing for free form. This app is the worst app I’ve ever used.

There are so many shows I love on this app that aren’t anywhere else. However, the app constantly crashes or gives me error messages. The Freeform app on my smartTV refused to work so I started casting it to my TV from my phone and that worked fine all week, until now. Right now the app gives me an error when I open it and it won’t even let me do anything. It’s so frustrating. I have emailed support and all I got back is a general response, which I didn’t need bc I’ve done everything, I’ve deleted/reinstalled, my Wi-Fi and connection are fine but I refreshed them anyway, I’ve closed other running apps, I’ve restarted everything. It’s the glitches with the app itself. Guess I’ll be heading back over to the CW because I literally don’t have the patience for this anymore...

Great App (Could Use Work)
Freeform is a great app that lets you stream a bunch of different shows, but what’s annoying is how the app has many commercial breaks. And the commercial breaks are longer than needed or necessary. It’s also upsetting that you can’t watch all shows but besides that the app is great otherwise. And it does not require you to pay which is also great, and partially makes up for the adds, but still is a huge con regarding the app. Great for steaming shows if your tired or don’t have access to Netflix or HBO. The app is great but could use some work.

Enjoy but to many Commercials
I watch more commercials than I do my actual show. I use this app daily but it is so aggravating to watch the show for a second it seems then the commercials last twice as long. I understand commercials are going to be there but limit them so we can enjoy the show. Honestly the commercials repeat every time so I get the point. The app is amazing and has all my favorite shows so I still say it’s a 5 star just aggravated over to many commercials.

This is what will make the app better
I like the app but and again I don’t here’s why I don’t the app. I don’t have a TV Provider and so don’t other people. In my opinion there’s only 2 good shows that are unlocked which is “Baby Daddy” and “The Secret life of the American teenager”I’ve rewatched these shows so many times and it getting boring SO I THINK WE SHOULD GET RID OF THE TV PROVIDE. The Second reason is that it gives us TOO MANY COMMERCIALS I understand the commercials but 2 or 3 would be good not 6 and 7.

Freeform App
I love this app. Im giving it 4 stars because the adds are very inconveniencing... even the quicker option is a hassle. Take away the adds and maybe include if there will be more seasons of each show or the good ones like shadow hunters etc. once the adds are toned down or gone (because let's face it no one watches them anyway) then I will give a 5 stars. Also be sure to change the quality of the beginnings. It goes from fuzzy to regular but you have to restart the app a couple times which is inconveniencing. Thanks a lot! Love you freeform !

No tv provider
This app is great especially since I really wanted to watch Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists. The first two episodes were unlocked but since I don’t have a tv provider I cannot see the third episode. I’m a 7th grader and we have spectrum but not cable so I can’t watch another episode. This makes me upset because not only was the show getting interesting but I can no longer watch shows that need a tv provider. Not everyone has a tv provider and most shows require a tv provider. Overall this app is great.

Not Letting Me Log In
I think this app would be fine if I was able to access my TV provider. I logged into my AT&T account through my wi-fi provider, which worked fine, but then it wouldn't stop showing me the error message that my cable provider doesn't have the freeform network. I checked my TV and low-and-behold, I have the freeform network with my TV package. I also tried logging in with the ABC app, which had the same results. I'm not going to contact my TV provider about this because I know that I have the Freeform and ABC channels included in my TV package, so there isn't anything wrong on my provider's end, this is a problem with the app.

Great app! Still room for improvements
As you saw from the title I think this app is great, no negative comments about anything because I haven’t been on it for very long. One thing that I think multitaskers like me would want is to be able to exit the app but still have the show they are watching in a small box like Netflix uses. I would watch a show and be drawing at the same time or texting friends about the show.

Love! 💕
I love this app, especially because the episodes are usually available for streaming right after the show airs which is incredible!! Please don’t stop doing that! 👏🏼 👏🏼 👏🏼 The only reason why I gave it 4 stars is because I have trouble rewinding episodes with the time’s like it’s too tight of a space to get it to where I want it ; So if you guys could make that better it would be awesome! (Also maybe throw in a way for us to start it completely over too, that’d be great as well)

Missing feature on iPad?
First of all the app works just fine. If what you’re looking for is to watch TV, you won’t be disappointed. On the iPad however, it’s not possible to multitask. There is no picture-in-picture and it doesn’t let you do split screen, so whenever I want to watch something I can’t really do anything else without. Since most video streaming apps have at least one of those features by now, it feels interrupting to have the video completely pause when I need to do something like check my email.

Too many ads!! And too many “errors”
I downloaded this app specifically to watch the Teal Swan documentary The Deep End. I was never able to watch more than a few minutes without ads, which is a mild inconvenience. But the problem is after the ads an error will generate and takes you back to the beginning of the episode. I did this about 10 times and I had spent 1 1/2 hour trying to watch a 45 min show and I was only have through!!! Least favorite streaming service to date which is so unfortunate because I REALLY want it to that. I hope it gets fixed but I’m deleting the app for now

A Little Disappointed with Update
I really do like this app and have had few problems with it in the past. It doesn’t glitch much and makes it easy to watch shows. I am really sad they decided to get rid of the Non-stop point system. It was a really great way to get users to watch more. I’m not upset about my unused points because the app has been warning us that they would become invalid at the end of July, but I still don’t really like this change. Also, the ads now don’t show the total amount of time for the commercials and just for the individual commercials. This makes it hard if maybe you need to grab something/go to the bathroom and don’t want to miss the show. Overall, a nice app. I just wished they kept the non-stop point and the previous ad count down.

Commercials Freezing
Whenever I connect this app with my Chromecast, the commercials always freeze on the last one. I have to hit play/pause repeatedly, close the app, etc just to continue. This sometimes causes the show to start over, and again the cycle of freezing commercials. It takes an hour and a half to watch a 45 minute program. I never have this issue with other streaming applications that I connect to Chromecast. Also a reduction in commercials would be very helpful.

I really love this app but....whenever I watch it the Uber commercial repeatedly gets stuck and stays frozen and I have to go out of whatever show I’m watching to get rid of it and then when I go back in the commercials start over from the beginning...very frustrating. Also when I’m watching the app on my fire stick I have put in my tv provider but it continuously doesn’t recognize it just refreshes and won’t allow me to watch the new shows.

Switched TV Providers
I had Spectrum but switch to the rising Google Fiber & of course this provider is one that doesn’t have access to certain content, mainly the shows I want to watch 🤦🏽‍♀️ but when I was with Spectrum, the app worked great for me! But the new episode of the new season of Grown-ish is already on the app and of course, I can’t watch it. The only 2 shows I watch on Freeform are locked, so unfortunately it’s kind of pointless for me to have the app anymore.

Needs work
When i got the app to watch shadow hunters and all of the previous wonderful shows on there, I’ve had a few issues with it. Theres always an error message that occurs and i can never get the second episode to load (shadow hunters) but if i go around choosing different shows to watch, it’ll play. Another thing is WHY THE 3-6 ADVERTISEMENTS. I want to watch the show but find it super unnecessary to have that many advertisements. Last thing, whats the point of making an account? All i have to do is connect to my tv provider and it’ll play any of the shows without logging in. Really pointless....

I have had the App for about two years. I normally use it when "my" regular TV shows are on break to look at shows that I didn't have time to watch during their regular season. Buffering is usually never a major problem, only for less than a minute or so if it does. Would recommend this app.

I hate the new update. No more Freeform points. I really liked them because it was something unique about the app and you could earn watching with no adds. Also while watching the adds it doesn’t say how much time it has left only the amount of adds. And with the new update my progress was lost on a couple of shows. WORST UPDATE EVER. Truly disappointed. Used to be my favorite app, now my least favorite. Make it good again please?!

Are the ads really worth it?
At first, I was thinking, “Oh, yeah. I can binge ShadowHunters with ads. It’s no big problem” But no, it is a big problem. I’ve seen more ads then I have of the first episode. It’s such an annoyance, every 5-10 minutes more ads pop up and they’re not the usual 15 or 30 second ads you can push the “X” on, they’re 2 minutes long and multiple ads. It really just Pulls you out of the show and makes you wanna say “it’s easier watching on Tv than on this app”, I have yet to know or understand how to work the whole coins and no ads (Nonstop watching) thing and I’ve checked “Help”, “Settings”, and “Stream quality” nothing on how to activate it. Best take your luck on some streaming site to really invest yourself into the show and truly get the Netflix style binge. You’re not gonna find it on this app.

No rewards
Not a fan of all these commercials now. Not only that, but they took away the rewards system completely and for those of us that don’t have a home(no reason to have a cable provider) the free shows were all we had. The rewards system was worth it because you could at least watch a few episodes commercial free. Now it’s just so annoying that I don’t even think I want to use the app anymore. I’d rather watch them free online, on another website.

Pretty good
I'm pretty happy with this app. But there is one thing I don't like. You have to watch adds. But if you watch these adds you get points, and if you have enough to point you can go add free for one episode. So there is a way you can skip the adds. But I still don't like that each commercial break is 3 minutes long, and there are like 3-5 of them in one episode.

This app is great but the ads are horrible. You watch way more ads than you actually do your show. They also show the same ads too so it gets really boring. I get very frustrated with this app because I will get done watching 2:00 minutes of ads and then you watch one minute of your show and then your watching another 2:00 minutes of ads.

Like I’ll be watching it and then it’ll say “oops there was a problem so retry” and I’ll retry and it’ll make me watch a full set of ads again. Jesus
