In the iOS app when I get one of those ads that I have to manually close I get no video or menus at all, just sound. Only way of working around this is to close the app and kill it. Then I'll get it again after I attempt to watch a video yet again. By the 3rd time I was finally able to see something even though I got the pop up ad but then after the opening of the song I got another one of those ads and the app just crashes.
Also I often can not click on the ad to be able to close it. Can Funimation stop using these ads for the app and just use normal commercials? They seem to cause more problems and are more annoying then anything. I would love to use this app but really why are ads crashing and causing playback issues?
On a side note the sound quality is horrible. Sounds like it's compressed down to 64k and that is being generous.
