  • When it works it’s good

    By Kayak patty
    The app had been working fine for months. I could easily use it with chromecast to cast it to my tv. Lately it won’t cast. It seems like it’s going to work, shows the acorn name on the tv screen, and then the name of the show. Then it just stops; the acorn name comes back on the screen, and the show stops playing. I really hate this. Acorn does have some good shows. Originally I got it just to watch the Vera episodes that were not on Britbox, but then I found quite a few other shows I like so I decided to keep it. Update 10/15/18: Well now the Chromecast icon doesn’t show up even though on their website they say they’ve fixed the problem! The only way I can watch it now is online. That’s really inconvenient. The programs get 5 stars. The app gets 1 star. If this problem continues I’ll have to cancel.
  • Unreliable app

    By cmnobles63
    I agree, when I pay for a product, I expect to enjoy or to be able to get quality use from the app
  • Help

    By Socknitr
    I love the program selection. But did an update and lost chromcast for use with my iPad. Have tried to contact Acorn at least 7 times thru email. No replies. There is no phone contact!!! When it works I really like it. Pretty upset now. No customer support.
  • Poor app design and content

    By hoorayberet00
    Dear Acorn: I want to love your app and subscription. But poor design, execution and limited assets that you release make it unattractive. Please consider making your app to be fully integrated with Apple TV, Siri Remote and the TV app in iOS. Your app is a poor experience on any platform right now. I am not alone in my opinion and I hope to appeal to you to enhance the experience for folks who know that you can do better. Also, it looks like you hold tight to your assets. However in doing so, you are making it clear that you do not place the customer at the center of everything that you do. For example, why is only some of your Poirot Collection available and not all? It’s shameful. Why do you not allow full screen viewing? Why do you not allow picture-in-picture in your app? Why do you still have problems with subtitles? Thanks in advance for letting me provide feedback.
  • Claim app is fixed, STILL NOT FIXED

    By Thriftygirl47
    Love the shows, hate the app. Don’t bother with this streaming service unless you have a Roku. Samsung smart tv isn’t compatible any longer, Chromecast hasn’t worked for weeks now. Reported them to BBB because not a single customer service communication has addressed my request for a refund for time unable to cast to my tv. I’m paying for a service I can only watch on my tiny phone??? No thank you. Btw, all customer service is done via email, and it takes days and days for a response. Yeah, it’s less than $10 a month, but don’t bother. You can get a couple lattes instead of this headache!
  • Still can’t use Chromecast

    By Cakelight
    This app, which I continue to be charged for even though it’s useless, is in need of serious help. I’m just unsubscribing until y’all can get it figured out.
  • Casting has not worked for weeks and no guess when it will

    By brookmanor
    Please fix or refund.
  • Constantly screw up

    By .ww
    This is the only app I have trouble with! To finish watching a series I have to cancel the app on iTunes and go through prime. Ridiculous! No problem with BritBox or pbs Hulu Netflix or prime. This just stops allowing you to cast.
  • Chromecast Problems

    By stopthissillynesd
    I’m still unable to Chromecast using my iPhone. Will cancel subscription if this continues. Acorn is worthless to me without Chromecast.
  • Chromecast has stopped working....again

    By Midnite'nSalem
    After Acorn’s latest update, Chromecast finally started working..for a day. Now, the cast icon is not even showing on the Acorn app. YouTube & Netflix no problem with casting.
