  1. Rollback to the old mobile app

    The new app is difficult to use, hard to navigate and removes some of the best functionality of the old version (chat accessibility, PIP, airplay compatibility) while adding unnecessary functions, some of which are even detrimental to the viewing experience (e.g. swipe between streams). Roll back to the old version until you're able to release a well-tested, polished new version.

        • Some feedback/ideas regarding 5.0 Twitch App.

          As someone who watches Twitch primarily via an iPad pro, I wanted to give my two cents worth of constructive feedback about this new update.

          I should start by saying that I like the direction it has taken, and many of my pet peeves from the previous version were fixed. Many many thanks to the devs for the hard work that has been poured into the app.

          There are still, however, things that I think could use improving for better user experience.

          - Landing page: I understand the choice to make "Live" the first page users land on, but this…

            • Think over your mobile app.

              The new App is a hot mess of over-reaching functions that do not in any way improve viewer experience. The move from a a simple streaming platform into a hybrid of social media/streaming is mistake that I simply cannot get understand. There are better social media platforms out there and it feels like Twitch has played to its weaknesses instead of its strengths. This could easily be solved with increased customizibility.

              • Swipe to change videos? Chat section on mobile multitask?

                So, swiping to switch to the next or previous video is just awful and was honestly a completely idiotic idea. I'm constantly accidentally switching to other stuff now and it's INTENSELY annoying.

                Also intensely annoying is the fact that, when multitasking on the iPad Pro, which I frequently do while watching streams and VODs, if I bring up the keyboard, the section where chat will eventually be slides up and covers the stream until I hide the keyboard again.

                Speaking of the chat covering the stream, in the newest release it just covers a quarter of the screen and there's…

                • Suggestion: Add option to disable swipe controls and make Vods more visible

                  An option to disable swiping left and right to switch channels should be added as the implementation conflicts with swiping left or right to bring up device navigation controls, as I ultimately end up switching streams accidentally when I try to bring up my device's system buttons or make the video smaller when swiping down to new notifications.
                  Also viewing Vods and videos is very hidden away and should be brought front and center, say maybe instead of the useless pulse section. I couldn't care less what the community thinks I should watch.

                            • Twitch 5.0 enhancements to live streaming on iOS

                              It seems that live streaming is limited to a maximum resolution of 432p. This is much less than competitors which allow streaming at 720p or 1080p. Also, the lack of URL overlay support for cheer/tip notifications, similar to those provided by other apps like IRLTV and Teradek Live Air Solo, prevent this from being a viable alternative for serious IRL streamers.

                              These features would help make live streaming more popular using the Twitch app and help enable a one-device solution:

                              - Manual selection of stream resolution (480p, 720p, 1080p)
                              - Either URL Overlay support or another notification avenue to notify…

                                Please please please bring back Airplay support! The current situation is completely unusable (unless I'm doing something wrong). The only way to use Airplay now is to screen double. Not only does this mean I can't use ANY other app on my iPhone/iPad (iPhone iOS 10.3.2) while playing, but it also stops playing after about 20 minutes and my TV goes blank. I've tried in both play in background (worse) and not. Currently the app is not acceptable for use on the big screen.

                                      • What is going on with clips?

                                        when you watch clips through the app (iOS) it takes you out of the stream even if you reduce it. This wouldn't be such an issue but when you go back to the stream it totally refreshes chat (which is not great for modding). I've also noticed that currently, if you try and make a clip on the app it just crashes and totally shuts the app down?? I presume this is a glitch to be fixed though. I just wish you could watch clips in a pop out screen like other links in chat. It was nice and simple…

                                        • Clips for mobile app!

                                          I was thinking of how good it would be if streamers like me or everyone else can watch funny ir good "clips" ob the mobile app. And then also post them on reddit or other platforms. Momentarily it is very difficult to do that. U habe to go on the twitch web page click on desktop version and if u hit clips..then the app is asking u to open it in the app. But its not implement so notgi g happens. U can then xlick on desktop version again. Hope to hear from you and wgat u think about that.…
