  • Piece of Crap

    By PrincessLove55
    App does not work Please Fix so I can use it Does not let me sign in it unless If I could give it 0 stars I would

    By Iphoneuserupsetz
    First it crashes. Now it says no internet connection when there obviously is. Can’t sign in! Funny, because I can sign in perfectly fine with the same info on the computer. The mobile app is now useless and that was my favourite part. Update: I found a fix! Use BritBox instead. Their mobile app works just fine!
  • Changes Not Good!

    By TN/TX
    They are horrible!!! I’ve had problems since the updates were implemented. Never had to sign in prior, now it’s every time In order to continue what I was watching. A notice that my internet connection is lost seems to be the culprit. Erroneous. I love the content of ACORN and the price is doable, but only if I can access the site. Whatever improvements were done undo them so I can get back to watching and enjoying what I’m paying for.
  • Formerly good app gone wonky

    By Big JonK
    I watch Acorn frequently, since it and the one crowned by BBC & ITV are the best sources for British tv. Since the last iOS update, it will not work. It insists either that my password, which works fine on my PC, Roku, and laptop, is invalid or that there is no internet connection when there is one. I end up watching through the browser. Fix it and I will return to 5 stars on my rating.
  • Frustrating

    By Glasslass194
    When will Acorn get it right? Obviously never. With recent IPad update, 11.3, I’m not able to log into my account. Acorn says to go to App Store for latest version, but it’s the same nonsense..... still can’t watch Acorn from IPad. Also, no technical support ...only generic message. Totally bad app.
  • Long time subscriber

    By long time abscriber
    Since install the updated app on my iPhone I have not been able to use it. Keeps saying now internet connection when I do have an internet connection. I have to go to google and log in from that internet connection. I have sent numerous requests for tech assistance over and have not received any response about the problem. I have deleted and reinstalled the update numerous times and it does not fix the problem.
  • Love the content, hate the interface

    By NancyEHudak
    The new interface for iPad (mini, an older one) is awful. The old one was bad enough, but this new one is clunky, slow, and even harder to navigate. The "return" arrow keeps telling me that I've added or not added the show to my watchlist ... which I can't find anyway, so it really doesn't matter. The "resume watching" feature takes upwards of a half-dozen tries to get to work. And what's with the big pictures instead of a simple list? Hate it.
  • Can No Longer Use on iPads

    By Mr. Sukey
    When I open the app on my or my husband’s iPad, it says there is no internet connection. No. They is an internet connection. So then I tap on settings in the app, and it wants me to enter my username and password. I do and it tells me they are wrong. No. They aren’t. I’ve done all of this multiple times and nothing works. I’ve also tried deleting and reinstalling the app. Three times. We still can’t use the Acorn app on either iPad. We can use it on Apple TV, but now, this week, the new shows aren’t appearing that should have shown up on Monday. Two examples are Episode 17 of Murdoch Mysteries (Season 11) and Season 2 Episode 3 of Good Karma Hospital. I have never been so frustrated with an app.
  • Doesn’t function

    By Active Streamer
    New version fails to accept credentials and upon opening declares “no internet connection”. Unusable!
