Pros and cons of Halo Channel app for iPhone and iPad

Halo Channel app good for

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.
Please let us filter medals in categories like: most recent, common, rare. I love the app though
good, but I want thhe avility to cutomize my spartan, and look at another service record other than Halo 5
Works for me. Helps me keep track of halo news and my halo 5 stats! ?

Some bad moments

I tried to use it but it doesnt work unless in perfect conditions I give it a -1 star
Clicking on my service record has only worked once. It always gives me an error message. The app is slow. When you click on a new link it shows the loading circles and takes about a second to load. Compared to waypoint the look and feel of this app is boring. It looks like a company website. All around this app doesnt add anything to the halo game.
My app keeps crashing when I open it. It wont even open up to the title screen.
Add search function and ability to see more stats and more game history a long with clan features.
The game is great and all but I feel like the app can use a lot of improvement. There is a lot of potential for this app to grow in terms of bugs (cant load my Halo 5 service record sometimes), looks (it would be awesome to have a new, better looking startup logo and a completely new UI design for the app), a better profile page, and connectivity to the game. Overall, the app has potential to get better.
The app isnt nearly as impressive as I hoped it would be. There is a lot of potential for the app to change starting off with a completely new UI design that makes me want to use the app. I cant access certain parts of the app sometimes and it can really be frustrating. Overall, I hope to see a new UI, better connectivity to the game, and a better experience.
