Need more bug fixes This is a cool app for prople interested in news and want to see in one place. But as I use Galaxy Ace 3 this app gives me crash when I trying to watch some channels like fusion or AJ+ or Bloomberg and also not working for some other channels like vox. Need more stability and improvement. Otherwise is good app...

This is my second review. I've had this app working for a couple weeks and it's very good. My new years resolution was giving up cable. And I've really been missing CNN and running it in the background throughout the day. But I've started running this app on my FireTV 24 x 7 and haven't missing cable news yet. If I'm not a show or a movie, I turn on Watchup. It has a wide variety of programming options to build your personal stream with. It's really fresh, I love it. I bet it catches on big time. No gltches or bugs yet. I gave t a five out of five because it works and only shows what I want to see.

Just what I was looking for!!! Perfect concept but buggy execution. I use this on an HP Slate 21 in my kitchen and I just want something that streams news like the tv the Slate replaced. There are some bugs that keep me from giving it 5 stars, but all in all, this is a great app. Auto-play can be flaky. It often quits playing and forces me to press play on each clip. Closing the app and relaunching usually fixes this, but not always. This is important to me, so I hope they will fix this. Also it would be nice if there could be a consistent volume in clips. I know this is difficult with all the different providers, but some are barely audible even with the volume turned all the way up and then some are blaring.
