Video stops playing
Love the content of the app but i cant watch more than a few seconds of any video without it stopping and going back to the beginning like the video is just starting. I close the app and re open and problem still persists with or without wifi. Please, i really enjoy this app and want to continue to use but it is incredibly frustrating when i cant watch any videos!

Bad on iPhone X or newer
I don’t even know how you guys have such a high rating. Obviously only because of the content but you need to fix your app. It’s 2019 and this app is not iPhone X friendly. When the videos enter full screen you can’t swipe out by pulling down nor can you scroll through the video or rewind because the scroll bar is too close to the “home” swipe area on the iPhone X or newer. Tried it on a X, XS, and XS Max. Same thing on all of them. When leaving a video, feed automatically starts back at the top instead of keeping its place meaning if I watch the 182nd video when I leave it starts back at the latest. Could be better, definitely used to be worse. Edit: after further review upon a fresh install of the app, going back to the feed goes to the position as it should, but the video player during full screen is still bad for new generation iPhones.

Love the content , but the app seems to be a complete mess. Ads pop up that make the whole app crash and have to restart. The layout is the same on a browser as the app ? What the need or hype to get the app if there is no difference, the browser version atleast doesn’t have random ads pop up like I’m playing some cheap mobile game. Videos stop for no reason or just end . When you go from the wide screen landscape view on video then back to portrait it’s makes the app glitch out and half the screen goes black ;again having to close and reopen to use. Definitely update your coding and quality assurance team, u could even hire me for QA cause I’ll b honest with you in meetings.

“LIMITED” aka bogus.
I’ve been using this app for years and the content always forces me to use this bogus app. They have never fully fixed it but are trying to add to it for social media. After the first video you get your first ad. 99% of the time that’s when it locks up and you HAVE to crash it because of that 10 cent ad they feed us. Then relaunch and can watch maybe 3 more videos and guess what?! Time to crash and relaunch again. This has been my experience with this app for years and multiple phones. I have 200 mbps connection and tests prove it but Worldstar servers are throttled outbound or this app is just garbage. Like I said the content is great the app is garbage. I have finally given up and put a review on this app which is the real problem. Not the users.

The content is great, app needs work
One thing I’ve noticed about using this app is there is some sort of bug when scrolling and after watching a video and going back to the feed...if you scroll it’ll go down the page, almost like a glitch. Another key issue I’ve found is how this app drains your phones battery somehow. When using and watching videos my phone will immediately start getting very hot and I went from 28% to 10% battery life within 15 mins. My phone is a brand new IPhone X and it doesn’t do this with any other app. FIX IT!

The best place to see it raw
Sad to say but this is my go to ap for raw news. They also have some very funny and enlightening stuff as well. If you are really down with hip-hop then you will find a lot of things on here entertaining, if you are not into hip-hop please do not download this app because you will need an interpreter for 99% of the clips.

This app seriously needs to get it’s ish together.
This app only has a decent review because of the content on it, which has nothing to do with the actual app. Watch one video with no issue and then it’s all downhill from there. Freezing, crashes, literally anything that can make a content viewing app annoying, this app does it. I downloaded this app like 2 years ago and immediately stopped using it for the reasons stated above. Now the website directs you to this app automatically. I was in disbelief when I realized literally none of the issues that made me stop using it had been resolved.

As opened my morning dose of WSHH I again was hit with the fact that ONCE AGAIN I cannot access any of the music videos, not one, new and upcoming , NOTHING to do with a music video will play. It was like this for almost 2 months last time then is was fixed by an update and now back at it maybe only by 3 weeks later. Looks like a new update is in order ! Thanks though for being the best app around I will change to 5 ⭐️ once fixed ! I love me some WSHH !!!

Needs a lot of improvements.
First of all the app is ok. There are some improvements that needs to made to make things a lot easier such as page numbers. I don’t like scrolling down and down past videos I’ve already seen. There should just be a page number option at the bottom of the page like the actual website. Once you back out of a video or close the app. You start back from the top of the video page and have to scroll down and they ALL the videos again. Gets very annoying.

Ads. Crashing. Slow Load Times. Only Gets Worse
Used to love this app for the content. It is next to unusable now. Runs terribly. Ads that take just as long to load as the time they force you to watch them, which is long. Crashes like crazy. Videos take forever to load. Did I mention that they constantly force you to watch ads now that you cannot skip through until 20-30 seconds into the ad? Not at all worth the content. Horrible way to mismanage what used to be a worth-while app.

The App is ok!... But it could improve in a lot of areas. For starters fix the cell phone view when trying to watch a video it's very annoying!... other than that the App is decent. also the pop-ups are annoying as hell when you first click the app, I usually have to back out and start over. the pop ups are annoying as hell also, please fix that immediately because a lot of people have left worldstar and have now moved to a new site called the Grand Report.

I've been with WSHH since before they had an app. My only thing is that I wish you guys had a search engine. Every clips goes through you all first and I love that. Before it hits social media, you guys have it first. That's why I mess with you all. But I can't search old stuff or hashtag what I want to look up. I'd appreciate it if you add hashtags and search engine for mobile app. Thank you

If every video told the story like this. It’s in a full clip of lifetime in prison. Nothing matters
This told the full picture unlike other videos there are real folks having fun. With all the drugs in their system. There’s got to be a trigger drug that excites them 🤔🤔what happens when they’re hard and lonely ??

We need balance in new content.
I usually pass up all the fights and same drama filled post looking for unique content or interesting posts. We need to see more of the plus side of the net. Im not a social media person so I feel like I’m spared the continuous bombardment of uselessness!✌🏿

I can barley even use this app anymore. The ads have gotten ridiculous. I understand the need to generate revenue, but I am tired of having to sit through a three minute ad for the same dumb game( that can’t be skipped) over and over and over. It has gotten so bad , you almost have to watch an ad for every video you play. I shouldn’t have to do that to watch a one minute video clip every single time. World Star has gotten greedy and T his app is complete garbage now. I’ve used it for years but I will definitely be deleting it now.

Worst app , personal agendas
App bugs out a lot, a lot of ads in and out of videos. They re post the same thing all the time. They post fake videos knowing it’s fake for views. The views are clearly fake, they put a million views on some random dude cause that rapper is usually signed to them in someway. they always change the titles of videos and repost them same day for more views. The comment section is just a bunch of trolls. Worst app ever been on. Always posting videos against cops yet they show nothing but bad stuff about black people.

Man the status of Worldstar is just declining to me. & it is demoralizing that it’s the way it is after a legend (R.I.P. Q) created it. It’s like worldstar takes content that ig has had up for weeks or days & then they put it up there. Everything I watch on worldstar, I’ve already seen days prior on ig minus any of the comps. & even the comps are boring to watch. & can’t forget to mention how hot my phone gets using the worldstar app to the point I close the app cause it seems my phone is going to explode.

Bring on the update because the current one blows!!!
Iphone Xs and the clips in the app stop playing/ restart after 3 seconds. It forces me to close out the app so that videos return to “normal” and allow me to watch. Fix that garbage!! Out of the years I’ve had this app, why now

Trash app
If I could rate this app half a star I would. I imagine this app was made by one person barely out of high school who has never seen or used another app before. Videos don’t load, the scrolling bar is right next to your swipe home bar (FRUSTRATING) they don’t bother enhancing the video quality so half the time your looking at videos 1/5 of screen size and don’t forget what worldstar it notorious for NEVER GIVING CREDIT TO THE OWNER OF THE VIDEO so worldstar makes a bunch of money off promo on other people’s content. It’s a modern day scam

App is awesome. Update is making the app VERY LAGGY
The app itself is awesome. The convos, the videos, the news. The only issue I have is, it’s always been kind of a slow app. It was okay before but ever since the. Ew updates, it’s SLOWER than ever. It’s horrible. Please clean it up.

Lost watcher
Been watching world star since 06 but, just deleted the app and don’t planning visiting website for awhile at least. This new video improvement means ads for every video and no being able to go full screen with iPhone. 1/2 the time backing out of a video gives a pop up ad. Watching a video sometimes moves you through 3 next videos then you got to back, back, and back just to get to menu for yet another ad

Fantastic content which I have watched every day for years. However, ads are becoming an increasingly annoying issue. They used to play after the video, now they play before, during, and after. Can’t watch one video without ads popping up nonstop, it obviously shouldn’t be this way. Please give this bug some attention!

This app is so poorly made. I love the content on Worldstar but I can’t even view a video in full screen, the app just randomly starts clicking on 10 videos that I have to click out of. So much potential here and it’s like nothing is being done to help the interface at all. Just adding more and more ads

Make New Changes
We been having problems with wshh app.. some videos won’t load, videos under favorite are gone, play bar is Wonky. It would be nice to update the whole app instead of small fixes. Plus we’re heading into 2021, think that’s more than enough reason to upgrade the the whole app. Let make some changes.

Worldstar is a very crazy app. This app has some of the craziest videos that is hard to find anywhere else. In all good fun app, but I warn you stay away from the comment sections on certain videos relating to racism or anything political. I have seen some race wars in those comment sections that are so toxic, it’ll make you physically sick.

Keeps crashing my iPhone
This app starts to lag really bad the longer you spend on the app. Eventually it just locks up and it causes me to have to turn my phone off and reboot. Half the time it crashes so bad that I can’t even shut off my phone!! Only reason I’m giving it 2 stars is because I like the content when it works.

Good content. App needs work.
Let me start by saying the video add is very annoying. I love worldstar, but I hate that the videos are not embedded correctly and when you click the small video to make it bigger, it’s still small but centered in the screen and surrounded by a black empty space. The video needs to go to full screen. This is very very annoying as there is no way to zoom in on the video.

Simple and good app but the app will glitch, slow down, and crash when clicking too many recommended videos, also the comments section disappears. I don’t know if it’s because I’m on a more recent iPhone (iPhone Se 2nd gen) but other than that I like how the app runs. PLEASE FIX THESE ISSUES.

Needs to be updated
The content is alright, but the platform needs work. - the clock is not displayed in the app, it’s easy to lose track of time - there are no fast forward 10 second buttons like ALL other video content apps - when you swipe down on the comments the entire screen swipes down and you can’t see the video

Useless app
I went to download it the Worldstar app then got charged $17. Thinking it was free like the website. The website is set up way better than any the app itself. This app is useless if you compare it to the website. I scroll down and it loads the same videos and never refreshes itself. Big waste of money and a little waste of time. I’d give zero stars I possible, unfortunately that is not an option.

This app could be so much better, whenever I watch one video it stops towards the end and starts a random add. Then you can’t exit the add, also if you try to rewatch that video good luck it jumps to like three videos from the past and you have to back out all the way. Do better WORLDSTAR

Let’s be real
People need to start giving their ratings based in the apps performance not the content which is just projected from the WSHH website. The app is 10 years outdated. Nothing works properly, you’d think with all the money their making off the adds and posts that they’d invest 10-30k in some decent app development. I like the content but the mobile app is a complete embarrassment.

This app has been having bugs for years. The company doesn’t want to fix or update the UI system.
This is not a small company, no excuse for the amount of bugs or malfunctions in the app. You can’t search for a video. The videos stop playing. Formatting is awful. Better off going on the web to find Worldstar videos.

World star is really just a place where racist can rant
I understand everybody want to see some type of conflict or whatever but allowing people to hide behind a fake identity and constantly spout racist garbage is really just a app that is supporting racism. I don’t know why you don’t do a better job at censoring the racist rhetoric or banning the people who spout the nonsense instead of supporting it. (by doing nothing you are supporting it)
