  • FLACK Jul 10, 2021

    By JerZgirl124
    Every now and again comes a series so good 😊 I can’t help but binge watch if it’s not to long but this series “FLACK” was so great! The last one I watch was an Australian series called “McCLEOUDS DAUGHTERS” (I think that’s how it’s spelled), and that I couldn’t binge watch because you see, it is 8~Seasons long but one of the greatest, as is the Flack series and I just finished watching the Flack series. I sure hope they make a third season to see if Robyn lives from being hit by the car 🚙 and what else happens everywhere else. Reese should not not be given that exclusive for lying 🤥 and whatever else has gone down between the sisters 👯‍♀️ should be repaired. I loved Flack. I gave it a five~star rating because it kept me on my seat😀 and that how I like my series to do. It’s when when they start to get bland or unbelievably stupid is when I’m done right on the spot. I’ve no tolerance for stupidity at all!!!!!
  • Good enough but not great! Nov 16, 2020

    I find the layout of the movies a bit awkward. I wish for example when I want to look at my watchlist it would show thumbnails on the entire page of nothing but my watchlist. Same with the different categories of watch next or any other category of movies. I hate swiping from right to left to have to go through a bunch of movies to find the movie I am looking for. Good enough of selection of movies, never enough. Like to see more foreign films and independent films. Also would like to see them get rid of the ludicrous restriction of the prohibition against watching videos outside the country. Why do they care if I watch it in Utah or if I watch it in Japan? I have paid to watch the film. They certainly should be able to work around this legal technicality which is absurd! That’s when I want to watch my movies the most, when I’m outside the country. Also I think they charge for way too many series and films when I am a Prime member. They vast majority should be free.

    Basically, everything you want is on here. I love that there are parental controls per the device you’re using and that you can have multiple devices watching prime video without an extra charge. I can sync all my digital movies from here to movies anywhere website, I prefer that over iTunes video any day. I also love the primer discounts for rentals and purchases that they run every so often. It’s about as cheap as red box but lasts longer, sometimes 7 days after the first viewing, and I don’t have to rush out of the house to drop it off by 9pm Kiel redbox requires. Another bonus is I can get HBO and other channels through Prime and cancel at anytime. LOVE that feature. I highly recommend it!!

    I love the prime video app overall. For the most part it remembers where you left off on shows from device to device. I can save my favorites, and it recommends shows for me. The first flaw that bugs me, if I pause the movie with around 5 minutes left, and come back to it after the screen shuts off, it always skips to the next episode and cuts off my last few minutes. This happens on my Galaxy, Firestick and iPad, so I know it’s not my device . Drives me crazy. Next flaw is I can’t clear my watch history on just one show. I’m rewatching some shows and lose my place because it shows that I’ve seen all the episodes. I don’t want to clear my entire watch history, then I’ll lose my place in current shows. I wish this was a feature. If this feature exists, I haven’t seen anywhere to click to make this happen. Other than these two complaints, I enjoy prime video very much!

    Pretty good overall, but still buggy and irritatating autoplay ads at the worst times shoved in the middle of navigation. NEW LOW: If you rewind 10 seconds, they shove an ad at you during the middle of your show. Worse than 20th century commercial breaks. Oftentimes, if you navigate to a film, but then go back, the film and category disappear, and you can't return to the list to continue browsing.
  • good selection but poor app experience Apr 11, 2019

    i thoroughly enjoy the selection of tv shows and movies prime video brings. add ons, especially the HBO add on just heightens my experience. despite this, the developers have plenty of work to do with the app itself. it works just fine on the tv but the app is another story. often when i start a new episode the pause screen remains while the video continues to play in the background. i try to tap to make it go away and nothing happens. i try to tap anywhere to make it do anything like press back to return the home page or press pause and nothing works. i even exit the app and close the tab and the audio continues to play in the background. even turning off my phone it continues to play for several moments after. at first i thought it was just my ipad since it was an older model and has a history of issues but i continuously had the same issues on my iphone. not the end of the world but certainly annoying

    RECENT UPDATE BOUGHT GLITCH The app overall is great but the recent update bought some glitch. You can't skip forward or backwards now. Also the screen size dialogue box(used for adjusting the screen size. crop to fit, fit to screen) appears repeatedly in the phone UI corner even after closing the app. There is some major glitch. Please sort this problem soon. It's irritating.
  • Prime Video is for movie lovers, WHY??? Mar 3, 2020

    By read_this_alice
    First, you can get a 5 star rating to see how others are feeling about the movie you are considering. You will see right away the year it was made and who is in the cast. Second and my favorite, You can click onto the the cast and get individual pictures of each cast member and feedback on their film history. How many times have you watched a movie and wanted to know who played that character? Prime has made it easy for you to find out the name of that character you didn't know before. Third, lists other movies that people watched that had watched this movie. Often leading to another movie that was just as good. Fourth and fantastic, I can type in favorite actors, favorite directors, specific countries, to get lists of movies I would like to watch for whatever category reasons I want. Fabulous for anyone who wants to do film studies. You can type in about any subject and find movies that will fall into the category you want to focus on. No other video provider offers as many choices in movies, TV, documentaries, series, and anything else you can think of. They have made a point to cover just about everything a home entertainment app audience tastes and needs could possibly want to find. I am a 68 year old retired elementary school teacher and grandma who happens to be a movie enthusiasts. I hope this helps some people decide if Prime Video is for them.

  • Options & Devices Jan 13, 2019

    By Artistparachrist
    I like the quality, features (on phone, your able to see the music that's playing during a spacific scene and all the main characters. Along with the seasons and episodes your currently on (if it's a TV show)), and I like the modern slick design. I don't appreciate the options (some movies you still have to buy or rent to enjoy) like 'The Grinch' among others for now. They have others available...that came out in 1920s but not the newer ones available! It has been frustrating that I have to watch on my phone for most of the features and am absolutely not able to watch anything on my laptop. I think it would be nice to have the same features available on Apple TV and so on. Lastly, it would be nice to be able to create multiple accounts for multiple people under 1 main account. Hope this helps! I look forward to seeing the changes in the future.

    Mostly works fine. I absolutely can't get the cast icon to show up, and the Amazon forum responses are always the same. Yes, I have the latest apps on my tv and Android phone, they're on the same network, I've reinstalled everything. Casting works in every other app I've tried, but not this one. It also has problems with stopping and resuming. Not infrequently when I try to resume a TV show it'll restart... Sometimes a different episode to what I was watching. Overall it works though.

    Autoplay is an annoying feature since there doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason to it outside playing the next episode. But for movies? Or ending a TV series? How does the app decide what to jump to next? I can tell you that the app has never been successful in choosing the correct content. AND WHY AM I SEEING ADS WHILE STILL PAYING FOR PRIME?!?!?!?!?! What a scam.

    Please hurry up and fix the crashing issue. I can't even log back in because it just stops working. It's annoying and I'm gonna cancel if it doesn't get fixed soon. It's been a hot minute since I've gotten to use it. And yes I have Uninstalled and re-downloaded it a few times now.

    Experience ruined by the adaptative brightness that can't be disabled. My phone's maximum brightness is just enough to watch in the shadow when the sun is out, but since the light sensor isn't at its maximum, the app darkens the video without asking, so either I have to compensate by maxing out the brightness on my phone, which ruins the video because the black becomes gray, and ruins battery life, or I just can't see because I'm already at full brightness. Fix this, it's just a button to add.

    Well I payed the monthly amount thinking I would have access to everything. But I don't additional charges apply to certain movies and TV series. Also only certain things grab and keep my attention. Alot of the variety on here is limited. I'm just not sure if I will renew my subscription next month. I'm just not very entertained like i expected. But i can definitely do without additional charges for up to date movies and series. Sorry prime just unsatisfied
  • Takes too long to switch devices Dec 30, 2020

    By MusicChick94
    I love being able to watch shows and the low movie rental prices. However, what really annoys me is the fact that they limit the amount of devices that you can watch shows/movies on but then it takes forever to update when switching devices. I can’t count how many times I’ve tried switching from my phone to my tv for it to take over fifteen minutes for it to allow me to watch on the different device. No matter how many times I exit out of the app or turn off the device it continuously tells me that my video cannot play because it is “playing on another device.” If they are going to be that particular about how many devices can be used they should update their software so it runs faster. I shouldn’t have to wait fifteen minutes to continue my show on another device because their app doesn’t understand I’ve switched and closed out the app on other devices.

    I cannot believe a big company like this can't even hire a proper team to fix one of their MAIN apps. The video will start and just pause with a black screen and nothing else. I've tried reinstalling, clearing data but nothing works and I'm done with this app now.
  • Kinda useless Jan 7, 2021

    By no_nicknamebyme
    Stuff just doesn’t play anymore. A 1 hour video- I give up after waiting half an hour of loading for it to play. I seriously have to download videos for any of them to play. I’ve been in contact with them off and on for the past year and the only thing they can come up with is, close out/reopen, reboot device, delete/download the app, none of this has worked. Now, nothing plays at all. It’ll load for probably 15 minutes then it says there was a problem streaming or playing the video. Last time it did that, it also said there was a problem with the devices internet connection. Now, there is nothing wrong with my internet connection because at the same time, I can stream stuff of similar duration on another app and those NEVER take longer than 4-5 seconds to play. Also when I go into account settings it sits there and loads for a lot longer than it should. BTW, same story on 2 of my iPhones and yes, I have the resolution set to the lowest level

  • Too much greed Feb 26, 2020

    By nicknamesnottakenjustwanttostp
    I don’t mind commercials in free videos, but if I can’t rewind if I miss something what’s the point. Every time I try to rewind It gives me a commercial. I can’t rewind the movie!!! All due to your greed. Like you don’t get enough of my money. We are already pay for the service you would think you could err on the side of the paying viewer, not the sponsor. Show the price of a video free, free with ads, rent or buy without making me go into the movie page just to find out I have to pay if it want to see it. I realize this is another ploy to force more money out of us, but come on. Do you really need to be deceitful for more money? Just tell me in the thumbnail. So I don’t have to explain to my kid why we can’t see the movie he wanted to see, and I thought was included in my prime dues. Put a dollar sign in the thumbnail so I don’t have to waste time going back and forth between the main page and the individual movie pages.

    CONSTANTLY CRASHES. I used to think it's the problem of my device...but then later on I understood that the app is the reason...it doesn't load...and stays stuck. Just like that. Same for my windows but even more worse. It doesn't even open on my lap. It works for a day after I uninstall and reinstall it...then after a day or two...back to normal. Pls fix all these bugs. It's mind numbingly irritating.

    Prime brings me choices in video that other services don't offer. With Prime I get both quality and quantity. The people who man the service department are friendly and helpful with rare exception. Considering the cost of Amazon prime, one would be hard pressed to find similar entertainment at such value. I've been a subscriber for many years and am quite pleased.
  • Great app. Only one small issue... Jun 4, 2021

    By mikebatman742
    I found that if I pause what I’m playing on the app only a minute later it will totally close whatever it is I’m playing. I have an iPhone so other media apps will linger in the background so that if I pause for a moment I can come right back to it where I left off without having to reopen the app and press “play” again. Also I can’t make it a background window on my phone without full screening it first which is another thing other media apps do right away which is odd. But over all it is not too inconvenient of things. Just little nitpicks that could make an already great app even better and rival other media apps!
  • Love it, but could use some improvements! Nov 7, 2019

    By lamangias
    Our family loves watching Prime! Access to family friendly shows is what we look for most in our TV viewing. There are some PBS shows where we can see a few episodes or seasons and then others cost too much to buy. Would like to see shows like Murder She Wrote, etc have more seasons added. Also, I enjoy watching Law & Order SVU, so more seasons of that and other similar shows would be great. Would like to see more of the movies for kids be “prime” instead of having to pay for many that we would watch. Overall, use it way more than Netflix....thinking about giving it up, if Prime offers more.
  • I love this app Sep 27, 2020

    By thankfulsue
    I have been loving the prime app. As you all know we are mostly quarantined, with that said it is easy to download and pay for a ton of streaming services. I decided to get rid of all of them and keep Prime and Netflix. Since I stoped paying for sling tv I have been impressed with the amount of shows and variety that prime offers. I’m obsessed with true crime and this app has a ton of shows I have never heard of. I also have HBO with my prime subscription and I have not ran out of new and great programs. I especially love the Documentary’s. And I’m pretty sure this is the only place to watch the comedy Brides maids which has to be one of the funniest movies.
  • Great but... Aug 15, 2020

    It’s great don’t get me wrong but the problem is that sometimes that when I buy something it freezes and when I reload it the show/movie I buy says I have to buy it again but all the stuff I did doesn’t come its nothing big but please get it fixed it is so frustrating when I’m about to buy something and knocks me out please get that fixed it’s so annoying and agitating it might just be that my phone is not the newest kind or that my WiFi isn’t working right then but it is really really frustrating when it happens but besides that all in all I’d rate it 9.5 out of 10 it is still pretty cool
  • Am Prime Video Feb 27, 2019

    By chinesesister
    The app is a snap to use, and provides enough info for each video to help a person decide how to use the next 90 or 120 minutes. The biggest downside to me is that many of the choices provided to an Am Prime subscriber are really BAD movies: they’re not 'B' movies. No, they barely make it into the alphabet at all. More like 'V' movies or programs. And if there is a 'search' for a particular actor or director, the movies with some depth or interesting plots or where your search turns up movies of your actor choice, the best movies are NOT Am Prime. They may not be 'V' movies, but they miss 'A' and 'B' by a long-shot! And I was surprised at how few choices are Am Prime when I’m looking for work of a particular actor. There may be two, maybe three selections, but that’s it. And those selections are often not 'A' or 'B' either. I chalk up the gaps in decent choices as Am Prime learning how best to use this relatively new and attractive program. And so, I am hoping that there will improvement and more thought behind movie choices and program choices as Am Prime matures.

  • Good, but flawed Jan 15, 2020

    By Monka83
    I love the prime video app overall. For the most part it remembers where you left off on shows from device to device. I can save my favorites, and it recommends shows for me. The first flaw that bugs me, if I pause the movie with around 5 minutes left, and come back to it after the screen shuts off, it always skips to the next episode and cuts off my last few minutes. This happens on my Galaxy, Firestick and iPad, so I know it’s not my device . Drives me crazy. Next flaw is I can’t clear my watch history on just one show. I’m rewatching some shows and lose my place because it shows that I’ve seen all the episodes. I don’t want to clear my entire watch history, then I’ll lose my place in current shows. I wish this was a feature. If this feature exists, I haven’t seen anywhere to click to make this happen. Other than these two complaints, I enjoy prime video very much!
  • Ok but some issues need to be fixed Mar 5, 2021

    Enjoy some of what prime offers but it’s not my go-to streaming app as there’s just too many others out there with more content. A couple of things that I dislike about this app is the forward and rewind functions (instead of just forwarding or rewinding, it tells you you have to hold to forward or rewind and takes a few second before it actually does it, whereas other apps just forward and rewind right away). The other thing is it doesn’t always go to where you last left off. Finally, my biggest complaint is that I started to watch more foreign shows, particularly Chinese drama, and problems I’ve noted include audio and video not syncing, and the audio will go out completely in parts of the show. Would be good if these can be fixed.

    Great app, but recent updates have glitches !! If you stream to chrome cast and go to another app then come back to prime video it causes the video to restart and kind of crash but the app stays on the screen it was on, or if you lock your phone whilst the app is open and unlock it causes the same issue, after that it seems to be fine.
  • My favorite streaming service, but for 1 BIG problem Jun 12, 2020

    By nellnell84
    I love the movie and show selections included in Prime. I LOVE the selection of crime shows from the UK and the shows from PBS. The one complaint, and it’s a pretty big one, is that stream frequently fails/crashes/goes back to the selection screen. This happens several times every week. It also happens on both iPad and iPhone apps. Sometimes it will resume working when it select play, but usually it will continue to fail and Nothing but time will resolve it. When this happens have tried restarting the app, uninstall/reinstalling the app, switching from WiFi to cellular. Nothing I have tried has provided a better solution than time away from the app. Please fix this.
  • Pretty good Apr 15, 2019

    By LaurenNicoleM
    Prime app works great. Overall, it's relatively user friendly, awesome that data syncs to your other devices, and the content is fantastic. However, I have a few complaints: My biggest gripe: I'm not a fan of subscription-based payments, so I believe the monthly Prime membership should include access the ALL content, not just some content. It needs a more functional layout (it's too cluttered looking). Also- the Search function is tedious and time consuming if you don't have a microphone, you have to click letter-by-letter with your remote and pause typing before it will populate matching results. And what's with lack of predictive text here? Finally, I also wish users could make different shareable playlists for other Prime users.
  • Great App - Needs Menu Help to be Awesome Oct 29, 2019

    By 1badger1970
    Love Prime! It’s my favorite streaming platform. To make it awesome....it needs a user-defined view for purchased movies/shows! The cataloging views on my phone, tablet and TV are second rate. Let the user define (by different views) how they see their library! I don’t care to see a default chronological sort of what I’ve purchased! I DO care that 4 movies in a series are grouped together so I don’t have to scroll through 300 titles to find one of them. Also, show two or more rows of my purchases. A single row scroll is sooo yesteryear! I have 200 plus purchases and it’s getting harder and harder to find things. Please help. Last comment, allow purchases on my iPhone! Don’t make me log into another device for purchase.
  • Good UI, lots of titles, annoying filters Dec 17, 2020

    By Organiz3r
    I like this app. I never have any problems like crashing or anything. There are a lot of titles, they give good summary and background info, AND they still have user reviews which I think really enhances the browsing and watching experience. I end up choosing more titles I actually like so I finish more stuff on here than on other platforms. The recommendations are good too. My only complaint is that as far as I know, there’s no way to filter out stuff you cannot watch or even purchases on the app. So when you’re browsing you constantly have to check and see if you can even watch the titles before you get too interested:-/ Only reason I deducted a star.
  • A couple of issues Jul 12, 2021

    By Buddy1864
    I like the selection of tv and movies available, plus that it gives me access to my ever growing digital movie library. One problem is that if you are binging a show and pause your TV show in the last few minutes, and exit the app, it automatically assumes that you don’t want to watch the end of the episode. The next episode automatically comes up and you have to backtrack, scroll, and watch 2 minutes of commercials to see the big reveal in the last few seconds of the episode. I also see a lot of episode reviews are incorrect (looking at you Smallville). Hopefully these issues will be corrected in the future.
  • Stream quality not selectable on VIZIO TV Sep 13, 2019

    By Gmbrandon
    I like having Prime movies and shows, but I have one issue. When I use the Prime app built into my VIZIO E65 TV it does not have an option to select the stream quality level. So when Prime has a UHD movie available my TV automatically goes to the UHD mode and it consumes a lot of data. The app on my iPad and phone has the ability to select Good, Better Best streaming quality which lets me limit the stream to HD if I want. I found that I can cast from my iPad to limit the stream to HD but I may not always actually be aware a show is available in UHD and I end up using lots of data without realizing it. Please add the stream quality selection to the VIZIO version of the app.
  • Great, can get slightly greater Jun 10, 2021

    By BOSSINIO958
    It’s great and they should add more superhero shows, car shows, and prime originals of that nature eg comic book shows. Also please add more seasons to the tick, and invincible. Maybe add more grand tour or give you tubers petrolicious their own show. Also please put title\name of trailers and previews in-player before the skip button not after. Other than that great app n I look forward to more greatness, doing, and innovation. Also maybe give anon music his own podcast or interview season/show because he’s a great up-and-coming rapper. Also more adult cartoons like a prime original about killing aliens and zombies as young adults for a thriller comedy with life lessons vibe. And make Cleveland show free to prime
  • Good enough but not great! Nov 16, 2020

    By RDWharley
    I find the layout of the movies a bit awkward. I wish for example when I want to look at my watchlist it would show thumbnails on the entire page of nothing but my watchlist. Same with the different categories of watch next or any other category of movies. I hate swiping from right to left to have to go through a bunch of movies to find the movie I am looking for. Good enough of selection of movies, never enough. Like to see more foreign films and independent films. Also would like to see them get rid of the ludicrous restriction of the prohibition against watching videos outside the country. Why do they care if I watch it in Utah or if I watch it in Japan? I have paid to watch the film. They certainly should be able to work around this legal technicality which is absurd! That’s when I want to watch my movies the most, when I’m outside the country. Also I think they charge for way too many series and films when I am a Prime member. They vast majority should be free.

    Pretty good overall, but still buggy and irritatating autoplay ads at the worst times shoved in the middle of navigation. NEW LOW: If you rewind 10 seconds, they shove an ad at you during the middle of your show. Worse than 20th century commercial breaks. Oftentimes, if you navigate to a film, but then go back, the film and category disappear, and you can't return to the list to continue browsing.
  • good selection but poor app experience Apr 11, 2019

    By It needs tweeks
    i thoroughly enjoy the selection of tv shows and movies prime video brings. add ons, especially the HBO add on just heightens my experience. despite this, the developers have plenty of work to do with the app itself. it works just fine on the tv but the app is another story. often when i start a new episode the pause screen remains while the video continues to play in the background. i try to tap to make it go away and nothing happens. i try to tap anywhere to make it do anything like press back to return the home page or press pause and nothing works. i even exit the app and close the tab and the audio continues to play in the background. even turning off my phone it continues to play for several moments after. at first i thought it was just my ipad since it was an older model and has a history of issues but i continuously had the same issues on my iphone. not the end of the world but certainly annoying
  • Prime Video is for movie lovers, WHY??? Mar 3, 2020

    By read_this_alice
    First, you can get a 5 star rating to see how others are feeling about the movie you are considering. You will see right away the year it was made and who is in the cast. Second and my favorite, You can click onto the the cast and get individual pictures of each cast member and feedback on their film history. How many times have you watched a movie and wanted to know who played that character? Prime has made it easy for you to find out the name of that character you didn't know before. Third, lists other movies that people watched that had watched this movie. Often leading to another movie that was just as good. Fourth and fantastic, I can type in favorite actors, favorite directors, specific countries, to get lists of movies I would like to watch for whatever category reasons I want. Fabulous for anyone who wants to do film studies. You can type in about any subject and find movies that will fall into the category you want to focus on. No other video provider offers as many choices in movies, TV, documentaries, series, and anything else you can think of. They have made a point to cover just about everything a home entertainment app audience tastes and needs could possibly want to find. I am a 68 year old retired elementary school teacher and grandma who happens to be a movie enthusiasts. I hope this helps some people decide if Prime Video is for them.
  • Options & Devices Jan 13, 2019

    By Artistparachrist
    I like the quality, features (on phone, your able to see the music that's playing during a spacific scene and all the main characters. Along with the seasons and episodes your currently on (if it's a TV show)), and I like the modern slick design. I don't appreciate the options (some movies you still have to buy or rent to enjoy) like 'The Grinch' among others for now. They have others available...that came out in 1920s but not the newer ones available! It has been frustrating that I have to watch on my phone for most of the features and am absolutely not able to watch anything on my laptop. I think it would be nice to have the same features available on Apple TV and so on. Lastly, it would be nice to be able to create multiple accounts for multiple people under 1 main account. Hope this helps! I look forward to seeing the changes in the future.

    Mostly works fine. I absolutely can't get the cast icon to show up, and the Amazon forum responses are always the same. Yes, I have the latest apps on my tv and Android phone, they're on the same network, I've reinstalled everything. Casting works in every other app I've tried, but not this one. It also has problems with stopping and resuming. Not infrequently when I try to resume a TV show it'll restart... Sometimes a different episode to what I was watching. Overall it works though.
  • Was a fan,.. Still am just less now. Sep 24, 2019

    By Darkwolvez
    Have always loved your app. Was thrilled when you add support for the Chrome cast, love all your originals, and you have a great selection of shows. Then, you did the Netflix thing, asking if I'm still watching after a 2 to 3 episodes,.. Sigh,.. Most obnoxious thing ever. I work from home and have the tv on while I'm working,.. Insanely annoying to have to take my phone out, unlock it, try to remember which episode I was on (as your app only some times plays the right one when I get back on to it, if my wife is watching and she has watched past what I have it just goes to that). Then wait for the app to open, load up, find the correct episode, then start it over, as half the time it just restarts the episode, try to use the tiny bar to fast forward to where I was,.. Sorry,I hate this new update,.. 2 stars off, love everything else.
  • Not ready for Primetime Aug 22, 2020

    By michaelspringfield
    App has gotten increasingly more and more unstable in the last few weeks on my 4K Apple TV. App hangs on loading. I have to delete it and reinstall. Auto play on TV episodes is hit and miss as to whether or not it’s going to work. There is no autoplay setting that I can find in the Apple TV app since the addition of profiles. While we are on the subject of autoplay, the “are you still watching” is a nice feature but has horrible execution. The counter is apparently set to trigger after a certain number of episodes instead of on a timed interval. When you have a 4 year old wanting to watch Sarah and Duck and each episode is only 6-7 minutes you end up interacting with the app every 20 minutes or so. It would great if it did a timer/episode which ever is longer.
  • Less than user-friendly app. Dec 19, 2018

    By cookiebreath
    I agree with the last reviewer in that browsing the library available is very difficult. If you need a subscription to a different channel it should be in it’s own section! Plus, sometimes, no, often when I’ve been watching a series I go back and can’t find it when you would think it would be more like Netflix, sitting there in plain site waiting for you to watch it again, but, NO, you have to remember what it was called and go to search and find it that way. And some of the British shows are just difficult to remember the names of because they aren’t names of shows we are used to hearing about in the US. Overall, I love Prime and it’s originals, but this app needs help! Please people, see if you can do what Netflix does-it’s not that hard!
  • Buggy McBuggington. Sep 6, 2020

    By zerocrossing
    First off, on the Apple TV version, you get a look at the interface... which you can’t interact with and then it pulls you out to a splash/logo screen. Then you get put back to the main screen... when it doesn’t crash, which it often does. When you watch a show, it rarely keeps track of where you are and you will find yourself having to search though episodes the next day to figure out where you left off. This is also true for the iPad/iPhone versions. Maybe Jeff can sell off 1/100,000,000th of this fortune to pay a developer to fix their app and servers so this works. The content is a bit spotty too. Some stuff, like the Expanse is excellent, other shows, not so good, but there is generally enough good on there to keep me happy.
  • Aug 2, 2021

    By Allie Grimes
    Please hurry up and fix the crashing issue. I can't even log back in because it just stops working. It's annoying and I'm gonna cancel if it doesn't get fixed soon. It's been a hot minute since I've gotten to use it. And yes I have Uninstalled and re-downloaded it a few times now.

    Well I payed the monthly amount thinking I would have access to everything. But I don't additional charges apply to certain movies and TV series. Also only certain things grab and keep my attention. Alot of the variety on here is limited. I'm just not sure if I will renew my subscription next month. I'm just not very entertained like i expected. But i can definitely do without additional charges for up to date movies and series. Sorry prime just unsatisfied
  • Takes too long to switch devices Dec 30, 2020

    By MusicChick94
    I love being able to watch shows and the low movie rental prices. However, what really annoys me is the fact that they limit the amount of devices that you can watch shows/movies on but then it takes forever to update when switching devices. I can’t count how many times I’ve tried switching from my phone to my tv for it to take over fifteen minutes for it to allow me to watch on the different device. No matter how many times I exit out of the app or turn off the device it continuously tells me that my video cannot play because it is “playing on another device.” If they are going to be that particular about how many devices can be used they should update their software so it runs faster. I shouldn’t have to wait fifteen minutes to continue my show on another device because their app doesn’t understand I’ve switched and closed out the app on other devices.
  • Too much greed Feb 26, 2020

    By nicknamesnottakenjustwanttostp
    I don’t mind commercials in free videos, but if I can’t rewind if I miss something what’s the point. Every time I try to rewind It gives me a commercial. I can’t rewind the movie!!! All due to your greed. Like you don’t get enough of my money. We are already pay for the service you would think you could err on the side of the paying viewer, not the sponsor. Show the price of a video free, free with ads, rent or buy without making me go into the movie page just to find out I have to pay if it want to see it. I realize this is another ploy to force more money out of us, but come on. Do you really need to be deceitful for more money? Just tell me in the thumbnail. So I don’t have to explain to my kid why we can’t see the movie he wanted to see, and I thought was included in my prime dues. Put a dollar sign in the thumbnail so I don’t have to waste time going back and forth between the main page and the individual movie pages.
  • Prime video sync flaw Nov 22, 2020

    By nckname1234
    Overall prime is good, but when I purchase a video on my prime account the video does not always appear in my account. I access prime on my phone, tablet, computer and TV and yet sometimes a video I’ve purchased and am watching on my computer, or any other device, may take weeks or months to show up in ‘My Stuff’ on my TV, or any other device. When I try to switch between devices to continue watching a video the film may not be there or may take weeks to appear. I thought this was a one time thing, because it first happen about two years ago, but I’ve noticed it happening since then and again today when I purchased a video on my tablet and then tried to watch the video on my TV, the video needed to be repurchased, which I’m not about to do. I don’t share my devices with anyone so there’s no issue with my account being mixed with someone else’s, it just seems to be a syncing flaw.
  • Can’t perform its basic functions May 1, 2021

    By Meeks McGoo
    Prime Video is terrible as a streaming service. Your account doesn’t sync, so if you watch something on your phone and try to continue on your tv, it has no memory of it and you have to go searching for your show again and find where you were. For shows you’ve never seen before, when you go to start it for the first time the app will randomly try to start you in the middle of some random season instead of at the very beginning of the show. If you stop a show with less than five minutes left and then come back, it’s gone on to the next episode automatically even though you didn’t finish the last one. Lastly, the subtitles randomly freak out and will just flash on the screen for a split second and disappear for huge segments of the show. A ridiculous amount of bugs to fix for such a popular and well financed service.
  • Application was NOT fully tested before fielding Jan 5, 2019

    By AvidHunter1
    The features of the app that I have checked out, so far, are pretty slick; however, when you run across an important feature that falls flat and simply doesn’t work, it is quite frustrating. It is obvious that the “contact the seller” link that is provided in the order status section wasn’t tested (incompetence), or the engineering leadership identified the problem and released the product with a known flaw (ethically corrupt). When one clicks the link, it does not perform as expected, as it displays the tracking information for the order, not the contact information for the vendor. Having an autonomous and fully automated ordering system is great, but when there is a glitch and you cannot contact a human being to intervene and correct the problem, you quickly realize that Amazon’s goal is to completely eliminate human interaction. FIX THE PROBLEM.
  • Where's my library?!? Jun 12, 2018

    By Peky_69
    I know that you guys just love to introduce Prime content, that's pretty much useless abroad. But removing My Library, you know, movies that I bought and that I own, seems to me like adding a new bug, not fixing anything tbh. Just creating chaos out of the completely fine app. Maybe by intention. ============================== After contacting customer support turned out that since I'm abroad, the app just told to Prime that my country isn't the US anymore. That switched country and bought movies disappeared. Huuuuuuuge bug. Bought movies are just like original DVDs or Blue-rays, played on let's say US Blueray player. They must be playable everywhere. And please don't make automatic software decisions before asking user is that really what user wants. Those are mobile devices that we're talking about, meaning they're moving, sometimes across the world, not only across the US. Something to think about Amazon's PMs.
  • doesn’t work like it’s supposed to Dec 16, 2017

    By Zenais6464842
    So the app is pretty good when it works and it’s worked mostly well for the couple of years I’ve been a prime member. I like that if you tap the screen while watching something you can learn more about the actors or general trivia about the scene. It’s also nice that I could easily pick up where I left off. For a long time the last thing I watched would appear at the top. But I noticed lately that I sometimes have to search the title of what I was in the middle of watching if I stopped midway. It’s especially frustrating if I’m tired and the title doesn’t come to mind right away. The most frustrating problem I’ve had lately is videos not playing at all. I get an error message saying it can’t connect to the Internet. But I have no problems streaming videos or music in other apps or browser. It’ll be hours before it’ll let me watch anything.
  • Bad Experience May 29, 2020

    By p-777~~
    After entering the app I was asked to sign-in. Like many people I have my account passwords saved on my phone for ease of use. But, when using this app the fingerprint scan used to verify my identity didnt even appear on screen! By habit I knew what it wanted me to do. Furthermore, after entering the password the app wouldn’t even accept it. I checked to make sure it was the right one and it was, even after manually entering it it still wouldn't work. After a bunch of failed capchas and other little issues I had with this app it finally let me in after resetting my password. Now I have to update it on all my devices... With that being said, my other experiences with the app have been good. The layout out of the is quite nice and I like it more than other streaming apps. Its straight forward, intuitive and dark tones make for a good color scheme.

    Autoplay is an annoying feature since there doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason to it outside playing the next episode. But for movies? Or ending a TV series? How does the app decide what to jump to next? I can tell you that the app has never been successful in choosing the correct content. AND WHY AM I SEEING ADS WHILE STILL PAYING FOR PRIME?!?!?!?!?! What a scam.

    By Rijaja
    Experience ruined by the adaptative brightness that can't be disabled. My phone's maximum brightness is just enough to watch in the shadow when the sun is out, but since the light sensor isn't at its maximum, the app darkens the video without asking, so either I have to compensate by maxing out the brightness on my phone, which ruins the video because the black becomes gray, and ruins battery life, or I just can't see because I'm already at full brightness. Fix this, it's just a button to add.

  • Kinda useless Jan 7, 2021

    By no_nicknamebyme
    Stuff just doesn’t play anymore. A 1 hour video- I give up after waiting half an hour of loading for it to play. I seriously have to download videos for any of them to play. I’ve been in contact with them off and on for the past year and the only thing they can come up with is, close out/reopen, reboot device, delete/download the app, none of this has worked. Now, nothing plays at all. It’ll load for probably 15 minutes then it says there was a problem streaming or playing the video. Last time it did that, it also said there was a problem with the devices internet connection. Now, there is nothing wrong with my internet connection because at the same time, I can stream stuff of similar duration on another app and those NEVER take longer than 4-5 seconds to play. Also when I go into account settings it sits there and loads for a lot longer than it should. BTW, same story on 2 of my iPhones and yes, I have the resolution set to the lowest level

    Prime video is extremely unreliable. You never know whether it will load at all or just sit there. I have had more trouble with prime video than all my other apps combined, and have been tempted to cancel my subscription many times. Prime video does have a lot of content that I like so I have persevered and tried to make it work. It often tells you that there is no connection with the internet when that is obviously not true because my other apps are working just fine. Prime video is a headache!
  • Jul 31, 2021

    By clark steel
    The developer team who created this app or the whole experience of prime video should atleast open the app on each platform to see how well it is. Even on the Kindle tablet or fire hd 10 the prime video app is not optimized. The animation of moving around or opening and closing something is too bad. Even the app version on Android TV is bad. I thought maybe all smart TV apps are bad but the dev team atleast open the apple TV app or Netflix app or Disney app on Android TV or phones

    By J. Patrick Woolley
    Too many adverts when watching shows. You rewind 10 second to hear a word you missed at some climactic moment, and the developers of this app think this is the perfect time to make you wait for an advert to load, show you some random annoying advert, and then make you wait for your show to reload. Netflix is much, much better.
