Pros and cons of Halo Channel app for iPhone and iPad

Halo Channel app good for

The content and videos are amazing. I wish it had some Halo Waypoint capability for stuff like forums.
Its good but you need to update it so you can connect it to you console or PC so you can see if any of your friends who play Halo are online, thanks bye!.
I love this app and I am truly indeed a halo fan. This app still has stuff from over two years ago. Add in some new things such as things on waypoint. On both waypoint and this my head on my spartan is all messed up. WHY!!!?? Not trying to be rude but more needs in happen. Halo 5 is almost a ghost thanks to halo wars 2. Update this and halo 5. The battle rifle (br) is changed.WHY!!!?That was very unessasary. Update the server and make it where you only play with people your lvl. And where you can decide higher lvl or not. That’s all I ask of you.
Running on iOS 9.1 on an iPhone 5, this app functions perfectly well. The aesthetics arent very pretty, but it serves its purpose very well (i.e. Halo 5 service record).
I watched some pretty cool videos and got a free REQ Pack around the time Halo 5 came out. Good app.
I love the app, it is very useful! But I has a VERY horrible problem. THE VIDEO SYSTEM DOESNT WORK PROPERLY! I will try to load up Halo Nightfall, or Halo Fall of Reach, as I own both of them, but it will buffer for five minutes, (my wifi always is able to handle 1080p at all times) and then gives me 20 seconds of the series Im trying to watch! This means I cant enjoy my content that I paid for, and I still dont have the Nightfall armor for Halo 5, though Ive been trying for weeks now to try to watch Halo Nightfall! PLEASE ADRESS AND FIX THIS ISSUE! Other than that, the app is fine. Thank you for your time if you have read this far.

Some bad moments

A cheap, low effort halo app. Might as well just open up waypoint instead.
I just recently got back into halo 4 since it was made backwards compatible, and I’m a little sad that I can’t see my service record for it. Only the halo 5 record is accessible. Not to mention that I can’t access my reach record either. Waypoint had more options for interacting with the halo franchise as a whole while on the go. The app itself looks good but the UI is incredibly buggy and cumbersome. I really want waypoint back or at least for the Halo Channel to be shown the love it deserves. (Also Halo 5 was a disappointment. Do better.)
Halo Waypoint was the best app to check your spartans stats, weapons, and etc. You were also able to access it through old games and not needing the Halo 5 game. It is also laggy as hell and the design for the app is beyond inferior. 343i or whatever really screwed up on this one and the rest of the Halo series. This app is really terrible and laggy. All it shows is your Halo 5 status and halo episodes like landfall. Wouldnt recommend downloading this at all, just a waste of time and space.The Bungie era was much better and was pushing Halo to the pinnacle of video gaming. RIP Halo.
This app seems like it never has updated news. I means its been months and I really have no reason to keep using it. I want to use it more but its always the same posts from 2016. Come on people, this thing could be amazing but it isn’t close to being a complete app still
Featured menu has content from over a year ago and they’re still promoting Fall if Reach? How about some new articles or content that isn’t 1-3 years old. As far as the app goes it’s pretty useless. Service record is only for Halo 5, not even Halo Wars 2, Halo MCC or even the classics? I’m uninstalling the moment I’m done writing this. Sad to see this franchise slowly die.
I tried to use it but it doesnt work unless in perfect conditions I give it a -1 star
