Still crashes on Xoom with official Jellybean update, no video on Droid Incredible with latest OTA either.

I've been sending crash reports since the original deployment of the app. Useful theory, useless app if they aren't going to support some pretty common devices.

Sooo...I get an e-mail from D* this afternoon telling me that since I'm such a great guy, in August I get a free pay per view movie to watch on my laptop, phone, or tablet.

Sooo....I fire up my Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0, load the D* app, try to watch a movie, and the app crashes...just like it always has....

FAIL!

Funny as hell to me since I can watch HBO Go just fine on my Samsung Galaxy Tab2 7.0, yet the D* app crashes when trying to show the same program.

Wonder if the guys writing the D* droid app need to talk to the guys who wrote the HBO Go app.......:lol:

I'm running a Droid Razr. I can get video for one session after an un/re-instal but after that I get the spinning icon when trying to view then back to the detail page. Maybe once every 15 tries or so I'll get another video to play. Funny thing is, only happens on 3/4G, never get any video on wi-fi (except the preview, like others have said, works every time.) I've tried to uncheck the "3G box" but it doesn't seem to change anything. I have an old Droid 3 that I kept and it works perfect every time, since I have no service on it, it's wi-fi only.
It's a free service (with the appropriate subscriptions of course) so I can't get too upset, but it sure can get frustrating.

Just a observation.
"Watch On Phone" works fine on my SGII running AOKP ICS. It doesn't work when I run CM10 Jellybean (experimental). The other app features work fine on JB.

As an update I rolled back my rooted Galaxy Nexus from JB to ICS and the app works fine.
I have ICS on my stock LePan II tablet and the app won't show movies etc.

What android release is the rom based on, GB, ICS, JB?

The app works just fine on my SGII running GB and ICS based custom roms. The "Play on phone" doesn't work when I'm running JB based rom.
