Stan Entertainment Pty Ltd part of our Entertainment and have average installs from 100000 to 500000. Last Update June 29, 2016. Google play rating is 59.631. Current verison is Varies with device. Actual size 0 bytes.
Rooting a device doesn't actually make you a content thief, you know... The app won't run if your device is rooted. Completely absurd.
What a waste of time Unable to use on rooted devices. Can't play videos from their website using Nexus 5 and chrome. The message displayed on my TV using Chromecast states "Unfortunately your device doesn't support silverlight plugins, or Chromecast, so you won't be able to watch videos, but you can still browse the catalogue." No wonder they are giving away free access.
No fullscreen mode. Many issues, no updates. The picture often freezes while streaming, the bead for video progress often misalligns making restoring your place or rewinding near impossible. Often your place is lost when reopening after a freeze. App doesn't work on rooted devices for no reason, you shouldn't decide what we can and can't do with our devices. HD sometimes reduces quality automatically while on instead of stopping to buffer. Also, no subtitles. I have updated this review for the latest version of the app.
Good app and library. I like the app and the library, but the only thing I noticed was that while using Chromecast, video playback stops suddenly. i have to go back to the app and recast content. other than that good app.
So so... Something wrong after latest update... App freezes sometimes then boots you out of show you're watching. Sometimes picture goes black or distorted before app crashes. Not so great and need a fix urgently.
Great app I have to shake my head at the people who don't like the Stan content or service do they give the app a bad review, as if its the app's fault! This app is great, easy to use and works well. One feature it is missing is a way to flick through ALL shows, regardless of categorisation
Fine but should have a Ps4 app It's annoying having to plug a computer into my TV every time :/ the PlayStation is a media centre and I'd like to be able to use it easily, the way I can with Netflix.
Great content, horrible app First problem I ran into, was using a rooted phone. WHY? You support chromecast, capturecards can support chromecast. Don't understand that at all. Second problem came after I got the damned thing working - Stan does not stream well, it forgets to clean up after itself and has no problem filling your ram with video you've already watched - at which point the video exits and leaves you to go and manually wipe your ram to continue. The video quality however is great.
Would better if... Would be better if it didn't keep either going back to the episode listing, or downright crashing. I'm paying for this service, and I can barely use it. Why is this happening in the first place. Using a Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet on a WiFi service
Not Happy Stan Samsung S6, Android 5.0.2. Multiple stability issues, upon first pressing play it either shuts down or returns to the main menu. Second attempt works everytime however it never makes it through a show without crashing back to the blue screen, or closing all together. Other bugs include poor visual quality (pixelated at times) and out of sync audio and unresponsive buttons, testing with Chromecast had terrible results all round. Tested on 3 carriers networks in isolation. Please refund my $. payments.
Invasive permission requirements. Version 2.0.0 includes excessive/invasive permission requirements. Why does it need access to the sensitive log data?
Playback ignores network proxy I have been able to log in and browse the library no problem. However all attempts at playback fail. After dropping my firewall completely playback works but connects directly to 126.96.36.199 rather than using proxy.
Terrible Haven't been able to watch a single thing. App crashes at every possible opportunity. What a tremendous time to be alive
Not good Pixelation occurs every few minutes. Netflix on the same device and network doesn't do this. Also the app crashes and needs a restart almost every time I use it.
Fail Keeps crashing, re buffering after three seconds of viewing. I'm done stan your not getting anymore of my money I've been patient long enough!
Great service - latest update sucks App keeps crashing after latest update. Love the service but this app is giving me the squirts!
No subtitles, less stable than Netflix I may go back to Netflix once my 30 days is up as there is no option for subtitles for the contents, also 30-50% of the time content will not load or had to cancel and then reload , will write back at end of 30day trial
Improving all the time Support has improved over the last few months. But I would put that down to Sony and HTC finally releasing updated android OS. I do like Stan service though and prefer to support Australian innovation.
I'd like to try it, back to Netflix I have a cheap rooted android player that is great, but Stan will not work on it or any other device I have . Netflix works on everything I have.
Doesn't work on rooted device The app won't even start on my phone, so I can't even use it to control my Chromecast. Netflix works perfectly on the same device -streaming and all.
Won't run on rooted devices It might be a good service if I could use it... They should say in the app description that it will not run rooted.
Newest update is buggy Just updated to 2.0.0 and app now won't play selected videos. After attempting to load selected stream the app returns to home screen
WARNING: Latest update requires access to your "sensitive log data", also doesn't work on rooted devices It is a sign of pure developer incompetence that this app in 2015 needs access to "sensitive log data". The Android developer documentation explicitly says "Not for use by third-party applications, because Log entries can contain the user's private information" No other app on my phone needs this. Also, despite every other reasonable app not caring about the customisation choices I have made with my phone (including banking apps and Netflix), this one won't let me do anything. Good job Stan, you are awful.
Freeze screen Really want to support stan instead of the american netflix but there are continuous freezes and errors. I only have it loaded on one device and i have noticed that i am running from too many devices. Very frustrating please fix so i continue to support
Good content Enjoying the content across 3 platforms, pity I don't have enough time to get best use of it!
Decent app and library Stan is a decent alternative/companion to Netflix. The library is quite good, especially UK content and children's selections (although some is very dated!). The ability to change the quality of the stream from within the app is great for those concerned about data usage. I do have occasional issues with buffering - and it's not at my end. (a problem I've never encountered with either Netflix or Foxtel VOD). Chromecast works well. Would definitely like to see an 'auto-play next' feature.
A textbook v1.0 release Light on features and rough around the edges, but with promise. It's not without its pitfalls but with signs of progress and a considerable catalogue, Stan is a strong alternative to long-standing Netflix.
Great alternative to Netflix Has a huge range of titles available. Netflix charges you additional fees for content that Stan supplies for free !
Does not work Crashes every time I use it. I have not been able to watch anything. Best I can get is sound
How about support for people who have Miracast rather than AirPlay or Chromecast? It would be nice if you would support the standard built into many televisions: miracast.
Very slow Very slow connection. Movies dosent load, buffering stops every few minutes. Very annoying. Prefer netflix better than this Stan.
Wont work on rooted phone Hi stan! I will be cancelling my subscription & stick with netflix. Fools! I will still get the 10 buck discount on the chromecast your subscription offered! Haha
Doesn't work on XPERIA Z1 android 4.4.4 Activated the service on pc just to find that it doesn't function on my phone, which is what I really want it for....Don't recommend if you have this device.
Gabriele Will cancel my Stan membership if these annoying issues are not resolved quickly. Samsung Note 4. Constant interruptions, freezing, unable to track properly, unable to play some movies. A very bad app/service.
Good alternative to Netflix but... This is not to say that either are fantastic. The app itself is alright and works fine. The content by both need a lot more to come close to any video store. Numerous movies are simply not there. Feels like being called an idiot. The alternative is not to use it which is not exactly an alternative, is it?!
Z2 now compatible Sony Xperia Z2 tablet wasn't compatible when I started my trial but this has been fixed now. Problem is that Netflix came out and was compatible before this was fixed so now I can't decide which one I like more...
Doesn't work on Rooted devices But you know what does? Netflix! Guess I won't be paying for this service after the trial runs it's course
This app stinks and is getting worse. Won't run on rooted devices. Update has not improved things. Cant rewind or pause at all now, the app shuts down. Can take 2 or 3 tries to conect properly then takes forever to start playing. Seriously thinking about cancelling subscription. ------------ 23/3/15 Keeps freezing. Numerous error messages in a single 50 minute episode. App shuts down. Rewinding sends out of sink. Needs a lot of work. Media player was rooted when purchased, unimpressed by problems this caused.
Works well Not a huge range of content but the app works well and is easy to connect to Chromecast. Need to run secondary app to hide root status.
So many problems Most of the time something is broken or stops working and therefore I can't watch what I want to watch or I mess around for the whole time trying various things just to get it working. I've given up listing the problems here, it's just a really unreliable app. When it works, it's a good day.
Unbelievably unreliable app Doesn't let me watch videos on mobile data even on 4G connectivity. Youtube HD videos play smoothly and try to watch it on stan, it doesn't even start playing video. Another issue, progress bar, its so useless. It starts playing from any random time except the time i tap on progress bar.. Youtube, and MX player have implemented it flawlessly. And therefore worst user experience. And it doesnt work on rooted device?? You guys are missing out on large customer base. I wish i could give less than one star
Constantly crashes I have never seen a full episode using this app. Poor development. It never streams for more than two minutes before the picture turns to static and the app eventually crashes not long after. Complete and utter garbage
Can't even open it. Good luck getting subscribers! Says I can't open it on rooted devices of which mine isn't. Don't expect I'll be paying for this after my free trial expires!
Improving all the time Support has improved over the last few months. But I would put that down to Sony and HTC finally releasing updated android OS. I do like Stan service though and prefer to support Australian innovation.
Doesn't play any videos on Sony Z3 Recently this app stopped working on my Sony Z3 (updated to lollipop). Can navigate content, but when launching any video the spinning circle appears for a few seconds then the video player closes.
PATHETIC FULL OF BUGS EXTREMELY UNSTABLE You will never be able to compete with other services if you do not get serious about your app and chromecast stability issues. The app keeps crashing and everytime a movie is played with chromecast the app disconnects to the video and the video becomes uncontrollable. Netflix app is much better i will be moving to Netflix although your content is better but your app is absolute rubbish!
What have you done. Everything was working fine. Then you updated the app so it would continue play (great feature) nut now it crashes and won't play anything. You can add the extras you like but if it doesn't cast it isn't worth it.
Poor device support Only supports 1 out of the 6 Android devices that are in our household... Netflix supports all 6. Nuff said.
Not compatible on samsung GT-N8000? Really? Doubt ill be extending past my 30 day trial...
Disappointed Doesn't work on my Rooted phone. Also takes forever to load.
Just doesn't work Logging in is made difficult by the fact it forces landscape mode, which means the keyboard covers up the login button. The email address field isn't even properly customised with a suitable keyboard, but once I get my details entered and hide the keyboard, it hangs with a spinning progress wheel. I'm glad I'm only trialling it. The Netflix app knocks this into a cocked hat, but I suppose I shouldn't be surprised since Fairfax don't seem to be able to deliver decent apps for their newspapers either.
Unreliable Slow and unreliable app.
Always crashing and bugging out
Stan Stan is a great deal. But does it work.
Not even worth getting it No point getting stand at the moment because there is no good channel or tv shows and most of the tv shows are old
Great... When it works Stan is great when you can actually get videos to play. Often i cannot watch a video I have selected, with the screen going black (as if it will start the video) then returning to the selection screen. Also, the app constantly restarts both when selecting and watching videos. Perhaps more transparency with the cause of failure would be useful...
Much better Much better. Still not 100% reliable but a lot better than what it was. Great variety of shows too. Better variety than netflix
Needs work Applications layout and functionality are pretty good, but simply too unstable. Frequent app crashes are very annoying and impact on the enjoyment of the program you are watching. Needs to be as reliable as the Netflix app/service if it hopes to compete.
Can't run Unable to run on my device... Rooting phone to get latest OS affects this? Why? Only reason I'm trying on android is because videos fail to load on my main Linux box. That's 2/2 devices I can't use this service on... Well done!
Simply doesn't work Doesn't work on my oneplus phone. I've got sound but no image.
Might want to fix your rooting checker guys! "To protect the content on Stan, we are not able to allow the use of Stan on rooted devices. We suggest you use an unmodified or unrooted version of Android to run this app" ..... erm.... my android ISNT ROOTED! Uninstall. Waste of time.
Works on Galaxy Note 4 but not tab 3 I like stan but the app doesn't work on my tablet and crashes. I would love to watch things on the bigger screen. Can you please fix? I should be able to watch Stan on all devise, i have pay for acess so please provide me with the service.
OK but not great An A-Z listing would help stop me swearing when i have to scroll through everything.
Will not play I have a two year old Asus tablet - this app does not work at all - shows freeze after a few seconds. Also my list of shows did not sync. I also have a new surface pro - I can't play Stan on that either. It does work on the play station but that's only device I can get it to play on
App needs work. I've found it to be unstable at times. Catalogue of shows and movies is good compared to another service. Nice to see an increase and for TV to be more current though.
1998 slow Everyone in my household can watch video content on our WiFi with no issues. It takes me, on the other hand, hours to watch a single television episode due to how much the Stan app lags.
DISAPPOINTING I really like the idea of Stan, but the app crashes constantly and sometimes won't even play. When it's working it's great, when it's not it's extremely frustrating. Right now I'm trying to watch SG1 but the app just keeps crashing, have tried for over an hour. It either plays on my device and won't cast to my TV, or it will cast to the TV for half an episode and then crash. I'm considering cancelling my subscription, as it won't cast from my computer either. Netflix has none of these issues!
The app has some good old tv series and movies that im into rewatching. But the trouble is. The loading of it 5-15mins into the show its buffering and keep on doing that at least 3-5 times during the show. It takes 40-60 mins to watch a tv series episode but with the buffering every 5-15 mins in the show it takes alot longer to watch. Starting to get anoyed with it. I never have this problem with nextflix. This app could be something really good because its got alot of australian stuff please fix.
No in-app subscription Would love to try it, but not being able to pay for it within the app makes that a bit hard
Completely non-functional Thought all previous comments cannot be right, but alas, this app is completely non-functional. Just as the screen rotates and begins to load anything it stops and returns to the episode selection screen. For every title I tried.
Since recent update your app sucks Have just done an update on both our Samsung Note 3, Samsung Core and our Samsung Smart TV and it won't allow us to search for titles so we have to scroll through to find it and when we are watching something the app crashes. What the point of paying monthly fees when there are issues. Will give it till our monthly renewal comes around if it the issues continue we will be cancelling our access.
Coulda shoulda woulda This app COULD be absolutely brilliant, except it couldn't hold onto an internet connection to save its own life.. I spend almost as much time with an error or buffering signal on my screen as I do any show.. To the point where it is pointless watching anything.. Unless it is fixed ASAP I will be cancelling my subscription.. NETFLIX is a thousand times better and without the hassle..
Has trouble loading videos, when it does shows are so stop/ start that it makes it impossible to watch. Never have this problem with Netflix. Update: after several e-mails problem still isn't resolved and the so called Stan customer service team have appeared to have given up on finding a solution. WISH I COULD GIVE IT A MINUS 5 STAR RATING !!!!!!! WASTE OF TIME AND MONEY, MUCH BETTER OFF WITH NETFLIX AND PRESTO
Love all the shows and movies on stan but it keeps buffering and often the screen goes black and the picture is unclear. I thought it was my tablet but the netflix app is fine.... very frustrating!!!!
App works great No troubles with buffering while on the train and really happy with being able to stream it via chrome cast and on ps4. It started off as a shoddy app, but they've clearly worked really hard to improve it. Would love the ability to save videos offline, so I don't chew through my phones data.
Great site Good selection shame you took Constantine I think it's called off very good show
Needs work App is aged, really needs a re vamp. Continually crashes on galaxy s6. Been sending error reports for ages, still no action.
Has potential. Too much buffering! Has potential but what ever I'm playing constantly keeps freezing and buffering. It's not my connection as I also have Netflix and Netflix runs flawlessly at the same time, Stan needs more servers/capacity. It's not good enough, sorry it out! I would love for the ability to filter movies by year 80s, 90s etc as sometimes it's nice to binge on those classics but it's hard to find them unless you search for titles by name which gets tiresome. Would also like to see a more modern material design implemented.
Chrome cast doesn't work. Which pretty much makes this app useless to me. No Android TV support?? Really makes me appreciate the Netflix app.
Works ok but crashes If the device locks while the app is active it renders it useless. Have to hold the power until it reboots
So many old good aussie TV shows you could put on Stan NO.1-"thank god you're here" How can that not be on Stan ??
Worst app.. app has been poorly tested Better to use Netflix . Not worth, only works well with web browsers ...Bad user experience. Supports limited devices
Below average App tends to hang, crashes frequently, and forces landscape / full screen. Not a good experience using with Android phone + Google chrome, but livable.
Cancelled and moving to Netflix When Stan first came out I thought it was a brilliant service but over the last couple of months I have noticed that videos keep buffering on my tablet, phone, laptop, smart tv and ps4. I know for a fact that the issue is not to do with my internet connection, as have no issues with other streaming services, but to do with shoddy programming by Stan. As a result of this I have cancelled my subscription and going with netflix
If it worked ot would be nice i suggest asking Netflix what they do i never have any problems with their app
Freeze and burn What a horrible experience to get stuck while you are enjoying a mo ie
Everything I feared... Stan is a great idea and reasonably priced too, but it just doesn't work for me. Brand new web connection, stupendous bandwidth and yet, I feel that a torrent on dialup would work better. THE CONSTANT BUFFERING (PAUSING) IS DRIVING ME NUTS.
Cant even get started with out going into web settings to allow cookies n caches.. pity i cant find that in the settings.. NETFLIX i was on in under 2minutes without changing any settings.. not going to bother now its to hard.. looks like NETFLIX gets my hard earned cash...
need to get up to date come on... u guys need to up get updated with all devices... got my new sony tablet and can't play anything.. will wait another month.. if not fix then cancel membership
never works this app did originally work on my tv but now it starts to load the show then just returns to the home screen. I would rather just use the webpage but it always just directs me to use this bloody app. This is on a Kogan Agora smart tv. Netflix works fine, perfectly even. Several updates ago so did this, please remedy otherwise my Stan account is useless.
Keeps frozing or buffering I have dodo and option for netflix no problem and stan havent watch one program or movie without frozing or buffering
Good selection, but buggy For instance, won't work via Ethernet. Will let me login, but as soon as I try to play anything, it says "Sorry, you don't have an active Internet connection." Only works properly if I switch to WiFi.
Poor One minor power cut. Now Stan is not working on smart TV. Netflix is working fine. Get the basics right, before trying to compete. No subtitles, what a joke. That is a massive mistake. Hard to support aussie companies, when they can't get the basics right.
Doesn't work I have a Samsung Galaxy Tab S Running on marshmallow, and when I press play, it loads the player and then suddenly exits, FIX THIS DEVS
Crap I can't get all seasons of heartland! Don't send me back anything because its no USE
Crashes Pretty unreliable app and streaming. Both the android and Samsung TV apps crash all the time. The streaming reliability is much worse than Netflix.
Love it Works fine for me. No issues. Loads of TV and movies to choose from. Much better than netflix. Highly recommended. Works well with chromecast too.
Good app but having issues App often crashes and requires re opening. Works fine after a few tries
Skips like a dvd Every ten or 20 seconds there crackling and it stuffs uo tue aound completely, most probably cancel subscription if not fixed within a few days
Not worth it for a paid service Paying $10 a month to see whats available then having the app crash once something is selected. Have issues across all platforms and have given it many chances.
Great Streams to chromecast very well. Though takes a while to load next episode.
Poor service I have both Netflix & Stan. Netflix works perfectly. Stan is slow and constantly stopping to load. It is very frustrating. I will not be continuing my subscription unless this is fixed promptly.
Not playing. Saying too many people logged in. Seems to be a problem only for my phone. Tried logging off from the other phone but still same message
Terrible interface Lots of good content but a terrible interface. This App and the site would only work 40% of the time and just freezes the rest.
App is unreliable Worked okay for the first day, now refuses to play anything with error mssg: "You are logged into too many devices". But I'm not, only logged into one Samsung tablet & nothing else. Extremely frustrating. If not sorted within free trial period going back to Netflix. Sorry.
Keeps loading and not playing anything Keeps freezing, and will not play movies just keeps loading! I know this is the app itself and nothing else as Netflix works just fine and all other streaming services... I don't have time to contact services it's you guys not me what a waste of money
fails to play on Samsung Galaxy Tablet (model: SM-T520) running Android version 4.4.2. video just wont load, crashes beck to the menu after 5 secs. Works well on my S6, S4 and PS3.
Stan, fix your tech App constantly crashes, disconnects from chromecast, or pauses for buffering. I am on 100mbit NBN, and never had these problems with Netflix. Unusable and frustrating experience.
Used to ADORE Stan Stan as been a brilliant app up until 48 hours ago, where I am now experiencing constant glitches (programs simply will not play) and am unable to find content I have viewed previously. Hopefully these bugs can be fixed soon as I do prefer Stan above other streaming sites. Thanks.
Great app and great content! It just works! And chromecast integration is perfect. Only minor thing is the fast forward/ rewind bar doesn't seem very accurate - maybe ffwd/rwd buttons would be a good addition to ensure you can go to the exact point you want - it's more an issue on longer shows. Search could also be more dynamic - search while you type instead of pressing enter to search.
Decent selection, STILL no surround sound. It has now been a year with no sign of surround sound in sight for Chromecast. I have 4 different devices that support 5.1 sound on Netflix, but none of them work with Stan. Unbelievable!
Absolute rubbish app If it doesnt crash, the video keeps pausing and starting. This doesn't happen with netflix or youtube as my connection is quite good. The problems are the same on iOS and when you stream toma projector with chromecast or a smart tv the app just crashes. Good content but horrible experience. Save your money
Very poor UX Content is fine, usability of the app is substandard compared with other similar apps.
Poor One minor power cut. Now Stan is not working on smart TV. Netflix is working fine. Get the basics right, before trying to compete. No subtitles, what a joke. That is a massive mistake. Hard to support aussie companies, when they can't get the basics right . The first episode of Constantine is missing.
Shocking app. Won't play on phone without severe buffer issues. Wont stream stream to Samsung tv at all! No probs with Netflix.
Won't even play video. won't play anything that I try to watch. Goes to load then just goes back to the video's info screen. Not an internet problem as everything else is fine. Day 1 and can't even watch anything. Can't be bothered going through the hoops of help and support. I'll just stick with netflix.
CC Needs work All the captions for "Better Call Saul" look like a drunkard wrote them, also more shows and movies needs caprioning. Crashes when screen is locked while an episode or movie is playing, Tab 4 10.1, Jellybean. Otherwise a great app, excellent content.
Won't play video on phone. Tries to load from my continue list. Get about 20 seconds of audio but no video then it drops back to info screen. Not happy. Definitely not a problem with internet. I have a 100mbps connection with a very good router. No problems with other streaming apps.
Does not work I installed this App on my Kogan Agora Smart TV and as soon as I hit play on my selection, the video closes and returns to the menu. Please help!
Why is everyone complaining? I've had absolutely no problems streaming on my phone (HTC One M9). I really don't understand why everyone else is having problems with the app; yeah, it's a little rusty, but it works perfectly for me. Also, Stan is definitely worth $10 a month. It has a lot better content than Strayan Netflix. If your having problems streaming on your phone use a laptop or an iPad or something. Most people have one; if not, just actually contact tech support and Stan will diagnose what's going on. Anyway, great work 9.
Netflix works well. Stan constantly crashes/reboots/buffering. Sometimes plays with sound however screen reverts to log in screen. Pressing pause then play quickly can work sometimes but just a HUGE disappointment. Would love to watch the shows. Its like watching a badly scratched dvd
Still doesn't work I got a free subscription with a mobile device, and this garbage app isn't even compatible with the device! I was assured months ago that they're 'working on it'. Bollocks. The only thing they did was update the play store to list the app as incompatible with this device. They've since dropped that but it still doesn't work! What a waste of time. FFS get rid of the imbeciles developing this app and find someone competent.
Decent Needs a material ui, support for immersive mode and better support for Chromecast: the audio plays for a few seconds on my phone at first and after half an hour the notification disappears and the app doesn't show that anything is playing. Also would be nice to see the HUD on Chromecast moved up a little and made not as wide for TVs with forced overscan. On a positive note, the app has a great selection of content and plays almost immediately on a pretty bad connection ~5mbits/sec.
Stan. Outstanding problem solving and communication from app developer etc.......I had a problem with 'stuttering' when video played, a quick email to support and received a prompt reply with strategies to fix issue. I am impressed. I love the selection of videos available and the format. Thanks Stan.
Home screen appearing during show. No subtitles 3 bloody times in 10 minutes. Shocking bloody app. when i have the screen locked in the app, the home screen for stan appears while I'm casting to my chrome cast. It's becoming quite annoying. Did it whilst writing this. No problems with Netflix. Also where are the subtitles.
Very unstable Its good that they got some updated tv shows there. But Its extremely frustrating when ur in the middle of the most exciting tv shows n the program stops running all the sudden. When u try to get back to it, error messages comes up. I only started trying out stan today but it got drop out 6 times already. Tried the "trouble shoot" but no info that i didnt know already.Very disappointed.I dont even want it anymore now even its for free ..why should I spend money on things that frustrated me so much?
Love the content But the app is not good. Slows down. Buffers. Judders. Plays out of sync. Shame.
Broken & can't compete No app for Android TV, so thought I could cast screen from phone app, but no videos will play on my z5. Just barely functional out of a window in chrome with the desktop site on low quality. Disappointing considering netflix plays in high quality on both the phone and TV. Great selection of shows on Stan but I can't watch them.
No video Audio plays but no video, then it goes back to main menu disappointed considering it works fine on my ps4. On a z4 tablet.
Average score for an average app Has nothing on Netflix. Not very user friendly at all, but it works for the most part. Only ever used it on free trial/optus reward free 3 months. Doubt I'd pay for it an account unless they brought it up to the same standard as Netflix.
Crashes multiple times a day Netflix and presto have worked fine. Content on Stan is better but the bloody app has so many issues you would think out of all things to invest in would be an IT guy who knows what they are doing.
App needs more work. App runs more smoothly since update. However if I run Stan and anything else but a chat app. Stan locks up often requiring me to reboot my Z4 tablet. Prior to the update, I could have several apps running in the background simultaneously. Stan offer a great service and catalogue, app let's them down terribly. Netflix on the other hand works perfectly. Get it together Stan!
Too many issues When stan is working i love it, unfortunately i spend half my time trying to make it work. Seems to have too many issues/bugs that never seem to be resolved.
Works great, cable broadband not ADSL, using a Nexus 7 with marshmallow streaming to the older Chromecast on a Samsung UHD TV, brilliant. Yes the TV does have Stan as well but prefer using the tablet, easier to navigate than using the tv remote
Constant buffering Constant buffering causing videos to stop or bad quality. its the only app to do it that i use all others work fine never use to be a issue with app untill last few weeks .
thanks listened to users and rooted phones can now use the app - thx guys. Usually access stan on my pc connected to my tv, this works very well on spare bedroom tv with the chrome cast.
Only got it because of free 3 months with optus. Has serious buffering issues with sound out of sync, which is frustrating. Works on my ps4 and note 4. Selection is ok but doubt I'll continue with it
Won't play Won't play through phone app, that also means it won't allow me to throw to my TV. Stupid!
Do not join STAN if you need to stream on a Minix Neo XH-8 Plus. Unfortunately the App does not work on the device.
Doesn't make sense to block rooted phones. So, why do it? Edit - thanks for fixing that issue. Review adjusted!
Stan Stops and keeps buffering other than that its ok why cant i get a stan app for my xbox 360 ive got netflix on my xbox 360 and my samsung can you make a stan app for xbox 360 like netflix has
Sign in. ...? Looks great but the app gave me no way to sign up while insisting I sign in !! ??? Uninstalled
wont work with my tablet! please add support for Samsung Galaxy Note tab 10.1 thank you!!
Recommendations suck Recommendations are terrible. When you select a movie it lists various movies you may like based on the current one, however, there appears to be no logic to the recommendation, that ask all seem random and you get the exact same recommendations no matter what movie you select. Pretty lame as you need to know exactly what your looking for. Discovery of new titles is terrible because of the poor recommendations and lack of showing all titles. Would also like to see a more modern material design implemented.
Stream constantly changes quality and casting to both ps4 and Apple TV don't work But apart from that it's alright
App needs a setting icon on the main home page The above would be useful to set a global video quality before watching a movie/TV show. Also on low video quality Stan app uses about twice as much data as Netflix, which is a consideration when on mobile data. Please update app :)
Not bad I'd give it 5 stars but their $10 rejoining fee & monthly subscription is laughable.
Not worth $10, just watch Netflix and chill!!! I was so excited to watch better call Saul, the flash, and etc until I experienced the buffering, the problem where the video did not load at all, and at the end of 'the flash' like the last most important minute, the video didn't load properly and I was so disappointed. For all the people thinking of getting Stan, I do not recommend it as these problems are constantly bothering you. It's not worth the trouble, just watch Netflix and chill!
Keeps on hanging Everything else that I use to stream to my cromecast works no problem! But the Stan app keeps on hanging... Sucks because the content is great...
Rock solid from day one on all my devices. People complaining about it running slow, ummm I think it's your internet connection or provider.
Chromecast crashing App runs fine on tablet but when i try to stream to my chromecast it plays for about 3 seconds then chromecast reboots. Every other app i have streamed to my chromecast with i.e. netflix, youtube even just the straight out screen mirroring works fine. Just stan crashes my chromecast every time.
2.4 update still no fix... Can't watch Stan on my Minix X8-H. App incompatible on play store. Side loaded app, will load and browse shows start to buffer then goes to Stan screen than back to home. Have four months free, was keen to subscribe but now I will not be unfortunately. Please update your app, try and improve its compatibility. You cant have subscribers if they cant watch it on anything thing.
What an awful exlerience Won't work on my Sony z5. Logs in, offers all the shows, but won't play. Have tried this for a few night now before giving up and going to Netflix. It was only a free trial but I feel angry. Poor experience.
Woeful app! Refuses to work on my Xperia Z5. Streams fail to start. Audio, but no picture when I do manage to get a stable stream. Stan works flawlessly on my PS4 on the same wireless network, and Netflix works perfectly on my Xperia Z5. What gives?
The volume issues seem to have improved but why am I getting an 'are you still there message' at the end of every episode when viewing a series. Wasn't an issue before, seems to have started after the last update.
Restarts my phone Have never seen this before with an app. Instantly restarts my phone on occasion when hitting play on a video.
Videos wont open Everytime i try to watch a video with the app on my smart tv it attempts to buffer and then goes straight back to the menu. Its a shame as there are some great shows on it.
Nice Stan has great content and the newest version of the app provides much better connectivity between devices e.g Android to xbox one. Still a bit clunky but a great improvement.
Crashes when opening video - updated version broken like the previous one. Netflix works without issues. Tried the troubleshooting steps but it doesn't work. Was able to downgrade my phone to 4.4.4 to get it to work but this presented battery issues with the device along with numerous bugs. All roms on 5.0 or above fail to work..please dont give the generic canned response. I am already in contact with Stan via email for a fix..was advised to wait on 28th of may for a fix which would hopefully be a week...still waiting...
Not impressed so far. Started watching an episode. Switched apps, now won't resume the episode. Loads then just goes back to the previous screen. Restarted the app, restarted the phone, signed out etc etc. Still can't resume watching.
Doesn't works Trying from last 3 days to resume, buffer n then comes back to home screen. Unable to watch anything.
Now working on Android N Stan seems to have more content ( that I want to watch) than Netflix.
STOP CUTTING THE END! This app keeps cutting the end off of episodes...They're the best bits!!
Latest Update ...:errors errors:errrors FIXED Latest version now fixed. Running well on kitkat 4.4.2. Kudos to tech teams quick response.
There's only audio and no video. Uninstalled and reinstalled the app and the problem still persists. That's not a fair practice.
Awesome Good thing u guys let us know the updates for my device. Just reactivated my account. Love it
Seasons are very old Like Stan only the seasons are.not up to date at all. Very behind schedule. Could be better
Latest update broke playback. I get sound and coloured bars but no video.
All good here Love or hate the library, the Stan app itself works flawlessly across all my devices, both Android and iPad.
I don't give it rate because I need help
Shocking ap Three days now and the ap keeps crashing. So annoying - three days to watch 1/2 episode of Breaking Bad! Content is great if I could only watch it on my Samsung s7.
OK app with some issues Often buffers then returns to home screen. When it works, its great but usually takes a while to warm up which can be frustrating.
Just bad I want it to work. I want an alternative to Netflix. Doesn't seem like this is it.
Cutting off end of episodes About the last ten seconds of episodes are being cut off, which is annoying when they don't end with credits but actual show content.
Its good but cant find mean girls
Chromecast drops in seconds Cant use it. When it eventually connects drops in seconds
Can't sign up for stan is there any options how to get an account
Great app, better content than Netflix Keep up the good work
love the app on my phone but would be good to have the app available for laptops as well!
Update broke it Attempts to play but then returns to menu
Not the best Casting to chromecast. Unable to pause..
fix your app, stan. im not going to pay 10 dollars a month for an app that freezes my entire tablet constantly. im on samsung galaxy tab pro. the freezes are random and very recent but definitely a deal breaker if they continue
Awesome. Best watched via chromecast. Flawless loading, great buffering now and smooth as butter.
Freeze all the time Freeze all the time
Love it Love it so mach
sound seems to muffled up. too much cracky noises please rectify or moving to Netflix.
Ad's interrupt streaming What's with the ads? You never had them before, and it even stopped streaming a movie to play an ad, it's not a free service so I don't appreciate the ads, if it doesn't stop I will cancel my subscription and just stick with presto and Netflix
Kicked I have both stan and netflix but stan is consistantly faulting on my tablet as well as chromecast. On both it stops and starts and sometimes wont even load. Never a problem with netflix and they're american affiliated. As for the smart tv the sound is lagging the audio. Tell me what that's about?
Great, but please add Android TV support Been testing Stan alongside netflix and I've found Stan to have a better offering of content in Australia. My only gripes with the app are the sometimes forced landscape (especially on tablets) and that there is no Android TV offering as yet as well as on nexus devices the icon in the notifications shows as just a white box.
Maybe you should ask Netflix if you can borrow their app! *Issue Resolved. Will check back in a few weeks and change my rating if the app continues to work.* Will not cast to chrome, and if it does, just begins to load then crashes. Every other app works and casts fine from my z5 premium (Netflix, YouTube, even gallery!) Seriously, you need to look into this! You have the potential for a great service. From the look of your reviews, it's not an isolated issue. Please fix it or I'll be taking my business elsewhere (along with the rest of the Google community!)
STAN Excellent, perfect video streaming, high quality audio and graphics. If you are having issues make sure you have plenty of spare internal RAM and delete any unused or evil apps like Facebook app or Pokemon go and get yourself a decent phone.
Huawei P9 stuttering Hi Stan, Just letting you know if it will continue to stutter on my Huawei P9 till tom I will unsubscribe tom. thanks. I have samsung tab and lg, they are working fine. but I usually travel with my huawei P9. so please fix thanks
App problem - needed to be solved Hi. My app suddenly stop playing any movie. It used to work properly. Tried uninstall and install again - didnt help. Can still watch Stan on laptop so my account and my internet is fine.
Not worth the money or hassle Stan's great, if you can ever get it to load, or once it's loaded you can make it through a whole episode without it lagging out. That's on Xbox one. It just straight up black screens me on my tablet and doesn't even run the app on my phone. Avoid this streaming service. AVOID IT. DON'T BUY IT. DON'T USE IT.
Stan on xbox one is awesome I think the concept of stan is great. I love watching movies on my xbox one love how your account can work on diff devices. I would like to see some improvements on easier user interface when scrolling and more of a movie selection would make this just awesome thanks. On xbox one its perfect but on samsung laggy.
Very annoying Watching stan on chrome better than app. Very annoying to watch as video constantly starts and stops as if it needs faster network. My laptop uses the same network fyi
Does not work on my Android Try to play Movie on my Android won't start play's for 4 seconds and crashes. Movie loads and play perfectly on phone in the last couple of weeks and now I have Movie playing but no sound? if you want my opinion stick with Netflix!
Isn't working Love stan it's great for kids shows. However over the last couple of days keeps coming up with a connection error. YouTube works fine so nothing wrong with my wifi connection.
Cant watch from phone. Just recieved a 3 month trial but cannot watch. Sound stutters. Getting 17mps speed on home net. Tried lower quality and makes no difference.
Won't play on Tablet - only Chromecast Plays with Chromecast - but not on tablet. I see the black loading screen, then it drops back to the show listing. No error warning. Nothing. Android 4.3, ASUS K00C
Great at first... now doesn't work I was really enjoying this app at first but now it crashes whenever I try to open a video. It wont play anything. Very frustrating and I will delete the app and have to cancel my membership if it cant be fixed
The controls keep disappearing whilst watching a movie so you can't find anywhere to pause it or rewind. Also when you can find the controls rewinding just a couple of minutes is difficult. Needs a rewind 30 sec button like on Netflix has. Great content but the app features need work.
Sad Paying for a service which the app is intermittently working. I am getting an error that I cannot log into the app because there is an issue with connection, tried on not just my device but others on my Wi-Fi and on 4G, this continues day in and day out and then occasionally bang, can log in! Error code is U1. I don't have the space to set up a laptop to cast to my TV in the bedroom. Need the app to work. Please fix, this isn't short term and seems to be getting worse :(
Con Vodafone sign up for free 3 months period - all is well until you've signed up and logged in for the 1st time only to realise that your 3 months sign up magically gets reduced to 1 month only - but the best part is YOU CAN'T WATCH ANYTHING ! NOT ON YOUR PS4, NOT ON YOUR SAMSUNG PHONE & CERTAINLY NOT ON MY APPLE TV 4TH GEN ! LOL this app is a lemon! So basically pay $10 for nothing. Wonderful way to make money stan. Don't get sucked into this con, the support team are useless too
Rubbish I spend more time buffering than I do watching. It doesnt playback video on Edge browser, and is virtually useless on Xbox One. The only way I can stream video is on Firefox. Never had any of these problems with Netflix. Today was the last draw. After trying to watch a movie on Xbox for hours, it crashed. So I gave up. It's now uninstalled. It's a pity too as they're adding good content.
I found....no sound Giving Stan a 1 star simply because it won't play audio through chromecast. I know that there is probably a technical solution to the problem, but seeing how YouTube and several other apps cast without issue through my android, I just can't be bothered with all the fiddling around.
i believe the concept of stan is amazing, but the TV Ads killed it for me. Rebel Wil. Is not a unicorn. Oh, and one thing. On ps4, it loads 2 seconds of info for even hovering over a title.
Not working on my samsung galaxy s7 Just downloaded this app after i recieved an offer from vodafone turned out to be a total waste of time. I am signed up with netflix as well so just wanted to look what new stan had to offer. Took me at least 15 minutes to find a good movie and when i press play it just takes me back to the home screen.
50/50 chance Its always a gamble using the app, exciting to see whether its going to work or not everytime i try to use it. The selection isn't too bad but the application regularly fails which requires resetting the phone and runs slow.
More buffering than play Been stop start for 10 mins. Switched it down to SD and it crashed. 8th time lucky...
Worst app and company I've ever seen. Doesn't let me cancel the service and service is awful
Mostly no issues with the app, but a few suggestions. The ability to skip forward or back ten seconds in the iOS app is fantastic and gave Stan the edge over Netflix for me personally - it's something I miss a lot in the Android app and on PC. Also, cutting off the last ten seconds of episodes isn't great for shows that play bonus content under closing credits. Overall though, a good app.
So far quite good Content is quite good. Doesn't always remember where you're up to and restarts from the beginning. No user rating system for programs as far as I can see.
PC & PS4 good. Tablet streaming bad Works really well when streaming from my PC or PS4. HOWEVER doesn't work on my Nexus tablet. App crashes after about 30s streaming, not cool
Huawei P9 Audio stutters constantly on factory fresh P9 (likewise with all apps installed). Other users reported this too. Works fine on girlfriend's iPhone. Will update review when fixed :)
Volume problem This app has volume issue when you connected to google cast device.
Clunky on tablet, good on phone App works great on mobile, on tablet it insists on displaying in landscape (not video, when browsing the library). In that display, the "continue watching" section only has one show and cannot be scrolled through.
Audio glitching on Huawei P9 Was working fine on my S6 now I cant watch anything the audio is wrecked. No other issues with my audio it's just this app
