Remove swipe to change streams and fix tablet chat
I'm not asking for a complete rollback to the old app because there are a lot of things about the new updated app that I like. However, theswipe to change to another stream is completely unnecessary and often just makes the viewing experience incredibly frustrating when trying to watch anything on mobile. Also, the old landscape chat on tablets was basically perfect since it didn't cover the stream but now that it does I barely ever have chat open anymore when watching on my iPad.
TLDR: Remove swipe to change streams or at least make it optional, and fix tablet landscape mode's chat ui.
I agree. I just updated Twitch App, and immediately wanted to go back, because I play active TwitchPlays games that I cannot anymore, because I need to have the keyboard on my tablet up all the time to play. And with the new setup, I cannot see the video while that is active, it scrolls the video up and out of sight. just shrink the chatbox size to fit the keyboard. I don't need to see 3/4ths of my screen in chat box to deal with chat decently. if i want to see something far back, I'll just scroll back. Also, I cannot create a fullscreen video view mode anymore on streams that i do NOT want to see chat on... the -><- (theatre) button only "zooms in" a bit, taking away even MORE of the video feed. Whomever designed this new viewability on streams made a huge error. The Live feed and pulse system is good, but revert to the old viewing system inside streams please. (the update i was in before I updated the app was still still pulse beta.)
