Video through phone
My phone won’t let me stream with video? WHY
It’s got potential.
I was reached out through email to try out Kaster. I gave it a whirl because I really enjoyed rabbit and also miss it. So, I was willing to try something similar to rabbit that’d allow me to watch movies with others again for free. So, I tried out Kaster and the app itself—is very limited on what it proposes to offer. You can’t necessarily do much on the app than what you can do on the website. I’d suggest adding more features in future updates to make the app more enjoyable, but also the possibility of enabling a cast option on the phone. Of course, if possible. It’s design is very simple and pleasing to the eye just needs more work on from bug fixes, tweaks, more options, and just that to create more of an enjoyable experience. It’s a baby in the process of getting on its toes. For now I won’t be keeping the app until there’s further change to make it worth keeping. Since, it’s kinda useless as an app during this time. Until then future rabbit.
The app seems decently put together but there’s no option menu to select anything, also it’s not as good with iPhone X or newer since the screen doesn’t go full screen (might have same issue with older phones). Overall, it’s good for watching things for others, but definitely needs a lot more improvement. Make it possible to make screens take up the entire phone screen, add an options area for those who want to edit their account and other stuff, and generally just make small tweaks that could make it easier to use and more appealing to the eye. I don’t get why the app is so expensive when the old providers had theirs free, but making small improvements will definitely get higher ratings and more people willing to spend the $10 for the app. Thank you
So I have Several Complaints
As the app is now, it’s practically useless. I can’t “discover” anything past the main page because there is no search option available. The desktop app seems to work alright, but as far as I’ve seen it’s incompatible with mobile. I’ve tried in vain for the past hour to stream something with my friend, and while the video plays on my desktop my party remains empty on the app. It just says “waiting for Kasters”. I also see no option to send invite links on mobile and my friend hasn’t been able to use the one that I sent from my desktop. This app needs a whole lot of development before I’d bother to use it again. I can see it has potential judging by how the desktop version functions, and I do genuinely look forward to it’s future updates, but until then, I don’t see any point in downloading this app.
Decent, but needs improvement
It definitely defeats the purpose of having Kast on your phone since I’ve only found that I️ can stream stuff on my computer and my friends can watch it on their phones. However, according to my friends it’s a lot less laggy on your phone than it is on the computer where it crashes a lot. I’m glad I️ can Kast a show on the computer so my friend can at least watch, but it does defeat the purpose of having the app in the first place. There are many needs for improvement, but so far I’m somewhat satisfied that it at least runs with the kaster streaming it on the computer.
I’m not too certain
I’m not entirely sure how to work this app? I say it was on the store for $10 and decided to pass because rabbit never charged us. The moment it was free, I downloaded it. I was excited to start watching shows and movies with friends, but this app doesn’t even allow me to do that. I can’t become a “Kaster” on my phone, only a watcher, I can’t make my own room, and I can’t edit my profile without the app crashing. The point of me getting the app was to watch and stream shows/movies on my phone. Since I can’t even do that, I’m not too confident in keeping the app. I think the idea is wonderful, but adding a few new features, tweaking a few bugs and whatnot could really improve what you’ve got going right now.
It shuts me out
The kast app was a great app for people like us who are in long distance who wanted to watch movies together, by far i have been using kast on my pc for months now and no issue. I was happy when i saw that it was available in the appstore for the ios so i immediately bought it and started using it. For the third day from when i downloaded the app, it would always shut me out of the app. I tried updating it thinking it could be because there’s an update but it would still keep on doing that. I dont want to pay for something that doesnt let me use it. Hope they would fix this issue cause i really like Kast.
If I had reviewed this a week ago, I would have given this app 5 stars. If they fix the problems I’m having, I would give it 5 stars again. But right now every room I go into, the video is choppy and in slow motion. I thought it was a temporary thing, but it’s been that way for a while now. It happens on both my iPhone and iPad. Someone mentioned my internet speed may be the problem, but I have the fastest speed available to me through Comcast xfinity. Someone said maybe it only works for Macs or PC now and not mobile devices. I’m not sure. I just wish it worked as it’s a great app
Buggy, Missing Desktop/Web App Features
Mobile App is buggy. You’ll get softlocked if you’re in a Party, and go to the Viewerlist. Essentially forcing you to close, and reopen the app. Some features that are also available on the Web/Desktop client are not present here, such as showing which friends are Online/Offline. You’d be better off using the Web/Desktop Version for both chatting and watching. Or even finding a different service, as Kast is still rough around the edges. Screensharing with Discord is honestly your best bet, if you’re only looking to screenshare videos with your friends. If you’re looking for a Rabbit clone, this app isn’t it.a
Waiting for all features
I’ll write a real review when all the features are up. But so far all I can do is watch a room. I can’t request to go to one so my group made it public for a bit till I could get in. Once I left, I was locked out again. I can’t chat, can’t message, can read any messages and can’t host anything yet. Just waiting for the updates as they role out. Also, when watching in the room, I had no issues and it sounded fine. But it’s a bit wonky, everyone had my custom icon? I think it was a glitch though.
Terrible app, used over 70% of phone battery in 1 hour, audio crazy out of sync
I wish that this app could work properly. The desktop version seems to have no issues like this. The app somehow managed to chew up over 70% of my phone’s battery in about 90 minutes. That’s absurd given my phone battery lasts all day and more on usual occasions. It’s also absurd that I wasn’t even using a microphone the entire time. The audio is so out of sync on mobile that it’s not watchable. Hopefully this app will be updated to be usable in the future, I’m not sure how this got approved for the App Store as is.
I think Kast is great, but on mobile it needs to be tweaked more. As others have said we can’t become a kaster and can only watch, which is fine with me. But one thing you should fix is when we go to see who is in the party, we cannot exit that area and so we have to close the app just to do that. I would appreciate it if you just tweaked that quickly so we could exit it instead of having to close the app and open it again.
There’s room to grow
The desktop version is great, I have no problem streaming for my discord server on it. However, anyone running on iOS software can’t see what I’m kasting. I also had some audio problems, but I was able to do an easy fix for that. Overall a useful tool for worldwide movie nights. I can’t wait to include my friends on iOS operating systems and be able to voice chat with the whole group.
disappointed and anxious
after rabbit was shut down i was eager to be able to use kast once it made it to the phone. and right after i added it i was disapointed with the verification bug, and the fact i could do ANYTHING. even the profile pics in other parties were glitched. some people had my pro pic! it made me very confused and overwhelmed at the fact that i thought i would have rabbit replaced with something even better, but now i wish rabbit never left, even with its glitches and bugs. PLEASE fix these bugs.
Could be so much better
It's nice that I can add people's requests while I'm on the go through my phone and tablet. But stinks that I can't access the chat on my tablet while in landscape mode. Imagine using you keyboard while in portrait mode some how. Also, it stinks that I cannot manage the party members while on the mobile app. It would make paying the $10 worth it for me, if these two features were in the app.
