Amazon Prime Video Positive Reviews
Love itPrime Video is great. The app itself has always run flawlessly on my phone. Using the Prime Video app on my TV has been great too. They have a lot of tv shows and movies to choose from. I like how they always remember where you left off. It’s nice that you can make different profiles so your shows aren’t mixed in with a family member’s shows or vice versa. They have a lot of kids show options as well which is great. The only thing I noticed about the app that was a negative, would be that sometimes after I’ve watched a show, it won’t show up in the “recently viewed” list and I have to search for it which is kind of a pain. Other than that though I’m very happy with Prime Video and it’s absolutely worth it to me..Version: 9.4.1
Good enough but not great!I find the layout of the movies a bit awkward. I wish for example when I want to look at my watchlist it would show thumbnails on the entire page of nothing but my watchlist. Same with the different categories of watch next or any other category of movies. I hate swiping from right to left to have to go through a bunch of movies to find the movie I am looking for. Good enough of selection of movies, never enough. Like to see more foreign films and independent films.
Also would like to see them get rid of the ludicrous restriction of the prohibition against watching videos outside the country. Why do they care if I watch it in Utah or if I watch it in Japan? I have paid to watch the film. They certainly should be able to work around this legal technicality which is absurd! That’s when I want to watch my movies the most, when I’m outside the country.
Also I think they charge for way too many series and films when I am a Prime member. They vast majority should be free..Version: 8.18.1
Prime Video is for movie lovers, WHY???First, you can get a 5 star rating to see how others are feeling about the movie you are considering. You will see right away the year it was made and who is in the cast.
Second and my favorite, You can click onto the the cast and get individual pictures of each cast member and feedback on their film history. How many times have you watched a movie and wanted to know who played that character? Prime has made it easy for you to find out the name of that character you didn't know before.
Third, lists other movies that people watched that had watched this movie. Often leading to another movie that was just as good.
Fourth and fantastic, I can type in favorite actors, favorite directors, specific countries, to get lists of movies I would like to watch for whatever category reasons I want. Fabulous for anyone who wants to do film studies. You can type in about any subject and find movies that will fall into the category you want to focus on.
No other video provider offers as many choices in movies, TV, documentaries, series, and anything else you can think of. They have made a point to cover just about everything a home entertainment app audience tastes and needs could possibly want to find.
I am a 68 year old retired elementary school teacher and grandma who happens to be a movie enthusiasts. I hope this helps some people decide if Prime Video is for them..Version: 8.0
Good, but flawedI love the prime video app overall. For the most part it remembers where you left off on shows from device to device. I can save my favorites, and it recommends shows for me.
The first flaw that bugs me, if I pause the movie with around 5 minutes left, and come back to it after the screen shuts off, it always skips to the next episode and cuts off my last few minutes. This happens on my Galaxy, Firestick and iPad, so I know it’s not my device . Drives me crazy.
Next flaw is I can’t clear my watch history on just one show. I’m rewatching some shows and lose my place because it shows that I’ve seen all the episodes. I don’t want to clear my entire watch history, then I’ll lose my place in current shows. I wish this was a feature. If this feature exists, I haven’t seen anywhere to click to make this happen.
Other than these two complaints, I enjoy prime video very much!.Version: 7.8
Good selection but poor app experienceI thoroughly enjoy the selection of tv shows and movies prime video brings. add ons, especially the HBO add on just heightens my experience. despite this, the developers have plenty of work to do with the app itself. it works just fine on the tv but the app is another story. often when i start a new episode the pause screen remains while the video continues to play in the background. i try to tap to make it go away and nothing happens. i try to tap anywhere to make it do anything like press back to return the home page or press pause and nothing works. i even exit the app and close the tab and the audio continues to play in the background. even turning off my phone it continues to play for several moments after. at first i thought it was just my ipad since it was an older model and has a history of issues but i continuously had the same issues on my iphone. not the end of the world but certainly annoying.Version: 6.8
Ok but some issues need to be fixedEnjoy some of what prime offers but it’s not my go-to streaming app as there’s just too many others out there with more content. A couple of things that I dislike about this app is the forward and rewind functions (instead of just forwarding or rewinding, it tells you you have to hold to forward or rewind and takes a few second before it actually does it, whereas other apps just forward and rewind right away). The other thing is it doesn’t always go to where you last left off. Finally, my biggest complaint is that I started to watch more foreign shows, particularly Chinese drama, and problems I’ve noted include audio and video not syncing, and the audio will go out completely in parts of the show. Would be good if these can be fixed..Version: 8.24
Options & DevicesI like the quality, features (on phone, your able to see the music that's playing during a spacific scene and all the main characters. Along with the seasons and episodes your currently on (if it's a TV show)), and I like the modern slick design. I don't appreciate the options (some movies you still have to buy or rent to enjoy) like 'The Grinch' among others for now. They have others available...that came out in 1920s but not the newer ones available!
It has been frustrating that I have to watch on my phone for most of the features and am absolutely not able to watch anything on my laptop. I think it would be nice to have the same features available on Apple TV and so on.
Lastly, it would be nice to be able to create multiple accounts for multiple people under 1 main account.
Hope this helps! I look forward to seeing the changes in the future..Version: 6.5.1
Great app. Only one small issue...I found that if I pause what I’m playing on the app only a minute later it will totally close whatever it is I’m playing. I have an iPhone so other media apps will linger in the background so that if I pause for a moment I can come right back to it where I left off without having to reopen the app and press “play” again. Also I can’t make it a background window on my phone without full screening it first which is another thing other media apps do right away which is odd. But over all it is not too inconvenient of things. Just little nitpicks that could make an already great app even better and rival other media apps!.Version: 8.30.1
Trouble while trying to chromecastI can see the app’s quality is improving with new updates but I’m always facing a problem when trying to chromecast, because the button sometimes simply won’t show up! While my phone is connected to the TV and I can cast all other streaming apps o have on my phone, prime video is the only one I have to spend half an hour trying to make it work! So I would recommend either adding a permanent casting button or at least adding another fixed one in the setting, because when the first doesn’t show up you can at least trying to connect the app to the device going to the setting and then making the app work again. It’s the third time I’m deleting and reinstalling the app because it won’t work even after almost thirty minutes trying to make the button appear!.Version: 8.35
Was a fan,.. Still am just less now.Have always loved your app. Was thrilled when you add support for the Chrome cast, love all your originals, and you have a great selection of shows. Then, you did the Netflix thing, asking if I'm still watching after a 2 to 3 episodes,.. Sigh,.. Most obnoxious thing ever. I work from home and have the tv on while I'm working,.. Insanely annoying to have to take my phone out, unlock it, try to remember which episode I was on (as your app only some times plays the right one when I get back on to it, if my wife is watching and she has watched past what I have it just goes to that). Then wait for the app to open, load up, find the correct episode, then start it over, as half the time it just restarts the episode, try to use the tiny bar to fast forward to where I was,.. Sorry,I hate this new update,.. 2 stars off, love everything else..Version: 7.5
LOVE PRIME VIDEO!Basically, everything you want is on here. I love that there are parental controls per the device you’re using and that you can have multiple devices watching prime video without an extra charge. I can sync all my digital movies from here to movies anywhere website, I prefer that over iTunes video any day. I also love the primer discounts for rentals and purchases that they run every so often. It’s about as cheap as red box but lasts longer, sometimes 7 days after the first viewing, and I don’t have to rush out of the house to drop it off by 9pm Kiel redbox requires. Another bonus is I can get HBO and other channels through Prime and cancel at anytime. LOVE that feature. I highly recommend it!!.Version: 5.5
Worth the Watch!Come on Robin Williams one more time heck yeah! I love humor and I love Christmas, and Robin Williams and Candice don’t disappoint! This movie made me smile 😊 and keep smiling! With all the world upside down and the pandemic 😷 and sooo much more Robin Williams last movie 🎥 yesss I would watch this again. Merry Christmas 🎄🎁 folks and Happy New Year 🎊🎆🎈 2022 bring the year on.. I would have given the movie 5 stars ⭐️ but Robin Williams was a super comedian and he was always working on his humor, so out of fairness to one of the greatest comedians ever 4 stars ⭐️. So Robin where ever you are there’s always room for improvement! I see you just beyond the veil laughing and smiling 😊 and telling anyone within the sound of your vortex some really awesome jokes. We just can’t stop laughing 😂…..Version: 9.2.2
I love it but …But I hate that you have to purchase some movies and the look of the app like do you even like celebrate Christmas day and Christmas movies and Christmas stuff do they make the ad look like a head scarfs Christmas hatSnow and that’s it and the prime video logo I want to see that and awesome oh well but also because you know I’ll be watching it are you watching odd squad cars are yeah are you getting into child Hood State because I mean don’t we all remember our childhood and I’d be watching pretty good stuff on there not really much to be watching but I like everything about it I like that they have all these movies and stuff I hate that you have to purchase some but it’s OK#HatingLoveNotReallyHatingLove… This is Hannah signing off PS do not hate love..Version: 8.35
Good UI, lots of titles, annoying filtersI like this app. I never have any problems like crashing or anything. There are a lot of titles, they give good summary and background info, AND they still have user reviews which I think really enhances the browsing and watching experience. I end up choosing more titles I actually like so I finish more stuff on here than on other platforms. The recommendations are good too. My only complaint is that as far as I know, there’s no way to filter out stuff you cannot watch or even purchases on the app. So when you’re browsing you constantly have to check and see if you can even watch the titles before you get too interested:-/ Only reason I deducted a star..Version: 8.19.1
Advertisement before customer serviceI won’t buy another video from this site! I own all 7 seasons of a TV series, that happens to be on HBO. Half the time I try to watch the series I own on “PRIME” HBO’s adds keep me from getting to my videos, prompting me to buy a subscription to HBO NOW. It’s frustrating, and then to call customer service and English is not the first language of anyone I spoke with. Which would be fine but they couldn’t understand what I just explained. They kept telling me to renew my subscription, which I don’t have or need to watch my videos. For extra fun I was hung up on 3 times. I have been a fan of Prime for a long time.........not anymore..... Ssshhheeeeeesssshhh I just wanted to watch my videos..Version: 5.1.2
I love this appI have been loving the prime app. As you all know we are mostly quarantined, with that said it is easy to download and pay for a ton of streaming services. I decided to get rid of all of them and keep Prime and Netflix. Since I stoped paying for sling tv I have been impressed with the amount of shows and variety that prime offers. I’m obsessed with true crime and this app has a ton of shows I have never heard of. I also have HBO with my prime subscription and I have not ran out of new and great programs. I especially love the Documentary’s. And I’m pretty sure this is the only place to watch the comedy Brides maids which has to be one of the funniest movies..Version: 8.15
Slow to load videosCan you fix the bug where the video loading screen spins but won’t play the video? I uninstalled and reinstalled the app, rebooted my iPad, and have the latest iOS. However, I still get a black screen with a spinning circle when I tap on an episode of a show that I want to watch. I have no other issues on other video streaming apps. This issue started two updates back. Update: I have updated my iOS, the app, signed off and signed back in and I still get a spinning circle animation when I tap on the episode I want to watch. UPDATE: I fixed the issue by removing my old devices from my iCloud account.
UPDATE 2: I am getting the spinning circle and playback error again..Version: 9.10
Could be betterIt would be a great app/service if they could make a couple of tweaks. The selection is mostly good, the skipping/buffering is very low, and the “recommendations” are pretty close to good. However, what sense does it make to have a description of the show or movie and not let ys read the whole thing? You’re telling me that you can’t extend a box to fit the entire description or at least add a scrolling feature? Also, why is it nearly impossible to find what we have already watched? For those with kids, or just that want to rewatch something without having to run a search again, it would be great to have somewhere to go to see what has already been viewed. Fix these things and get more stars on an updated review..Version: 8.23
Not ready for PrimetimeApp has gotten increasingly more and more unstable in the last few weeks on my 4K Apple TV. App hangs on loading. I have to delete it and reinstall. Auto play on TV episodes is hit and miss as to whether or not it’s going to work. There is no autoplay setting that I can find in the Apple TV app since the addition of profiles.
While we are on the subject of autoplay, the “are you still watching” is a nice feature but has horrible execution. The counter is apparently set to trigger after a certain number of episodes instead of on a timed interval. When you have a 4 year old wanting to watch Sarah and Duck and each episode is only 6-7 minutes you end up interacting with the app every 20 minutes or so.
It would great if it did a timer/episode which ever is longer..Version: 8.12
Does not fully clear when closedI have discovered that Car Play texting and reading texts doesn’t work if Prime Video isn’t fully shut down on my iPhone. Even with the app closed, my home screen still thinks it’s there and shows me a play button. I think I may have to fully shut down my phone to clear it (cached?) before I can drive anywhere. This never happened with Netflix to any degree. And this is after the most recent update from Sept 8/21. Other than this frustrating bug, great app.
UPDATE: Definitely have to power off my phone to clear out Prime Video so I can send and receive texts via Car Play. Prime video also shuts down if I use another audio app via Car Play..Version: 8.37
Love it, but could use some improvements!Our family loves watching Prime! Access to family friendly shows is what we look for most in our TV viewing. There are some PBS shows where we can see a few episodes or seasons and then others cost too much to buy. Would like to see shows like Murder She Wrote, etc have more seasons added. Also, I enjoy watching Law & Order SVU, so more seasons of that and other similar shows would be great. Would like to see more of the movies for kids be “prime” instead of having to pay for many that we would watch. Overall, use it way more than Netflix....thinking about giving it up, if Prime offers more..Version: 7.6
My favorite streaming service, but for 1 BIG problemI love the movie and show selections included in Prime. I LOVE the selection of crime shows from the UK and the shows from PBS. The one complaint, and it’s a pretty big one, is that stream frequently fails/crashes/goes back to the selection screen. This happens several times every week. It also happens on both iPad and iPhone apps. Sometimes it will resume working when it select play, but usually it will continue to fail and Nothing but time will resolve it. When this happens have tried restarting the app, uninstall/reinstalling the app, switching from WiFi to cellular. Nothing I have tried has provided a better solution than time away from the app. Please fix this..Version: 8.7
Less than user-friendly app.I agree with the last reviewer in that browsing the library available is very difficult. If you need a subscription to a different channel it should be in it’s own section! Plus, sometimes, no, often when I’ve been watching a series I go back and can’t find it when you would think it would be more like Netflix, sitting there in plain site waiting for you to watch it again, but, NO, you have to remember what it was called and go to search and find it that way. And some of the British shows are just difficult to remember the names of because they aren’t names of shows we are used to hearing about in the US. Overall, I love Prime and it’s originals, but this app needs help! Please people, see if you can do what Netflix does-it’s not that hard!.Version: 6.5
Buffering-really?We are HUGE Reacher fans and have read most of the books. We are hoping for many more seasons. The issue causing one less star? At least 5 times while watching a buffer wheel comes up, then the video stops. This happens with other videos as well. It happens on the LG TV, IPhone, and iPad. We have streaming through the cable service and there are no outages or issues with them. If we wait 5-10 minutes we have are put in at the correct part of the video but anywhere from 5-15 minutes the buffering starts again. All connections are fine and there is only one thing left - Prime. If we were not big Reacher fans we would not continue watching..Version: 9.3.1
GlitchyI have a couple of issues with Prime:
1. It never loads the first time I try to play something, but circle spins, then comes up with a message that my device isn’t connected to the internet. I have to go out of Prime, go to another streaming app, open a show to play, then go back to Prime. This works, but I’ve never encountered this issue with any other app.
2. It seems like there used to be a lot more free content on Prime. Now that content is limited. I really don’t want to pay $3 to watch one episode of a multi-episode program. And why $20 to see a theatrical film? I pay less to see it on a big screen! I liked Prime better when all the content was “free” (we do pay for the service) and there were more choices..Version: 8.41
Love prime showsThank you for creating prime shows I rented few movies and came across some really clean cute shows free prime with Ads thank you I love some of the rentals and free movies I not into violence shows those should not be shown with the shootings violence we have here in America I like to see you make more shows showing kids to respect their elders like Doris day, Andy griffin show something like that this generation of kids need to see more of this you may think I sound old fashioned but what I saying is the truth put on shows chinny chunky bang bang wizard of oz these shows shows respect this is what kids need to see more of thank you for all you do.Version: 8.29.1
Pretty goodPrime app works great. Overall, it's relatively user friendly, awesome that data syncs to your other devices, and the content is fantastic.
However, I have a few complaints: My biggest gripe: I'm not a fan of subscription-based payments, so I believe the monthly Prime membership should include access the ALL content, not just some content. It needs a more functional layout (it's too cluttered looking). Also- the Search function is tedious and time consuming if you don't have a microphone, you have to click letter-by-letter with your remote and pause typing before it will populate matching results. And what's with lack of predictive text here? Finally, I also wish users could make different shareable playlists for other Prime users..Version: 6.8
Great App - Needs Menu Help to be AwesomeLove Prime! It’s my favorite streaming platform. To make it awesome....it needs a user-defined view for purchased movies/shows!
The cataloging views on my phone, tablet and TV are second rate. Let the user define (by different views) how they see their library! I don’t care to see a default chronological sort of what I’ve purchased! I DO care that 4 movies in a series are grouped together so I don’t have to scroll through 300 titles to find one of them.
Also, show two or more rows of my purchases. A single row scroll is sooo yesteryear!
I have 200 plus purchases and it’s getting harder and harder to find things. Please help.
Last comment, allow purchases on my iPhone! Don’t make me log into another device for purchase..Version: 7.5.5
A couple of issuesI like the selection of tv and movies available, plus that it gives me access to my ever growing digital movie library. One problem is that if you are binging a show and pause your TV show in the last few minutes, and exit the app, it automatically assumes that you don’t want to watch the end of the episode. The next episode automatically comes up and you have to backtrack, scroll, and watch 2 minutes of commercials to see the big reveal in the last few seconds of the episode. I also see a lot of episode reviews are incorrect (looking at you Smallville). Hopefully these issues will be corrected in the future..Version: 8.33
In-between-ersWhat about us kids who aren’t teenagers yet or necessarily little kids either i wish there were more show options for us i want to watch river dale right but my parents wont let me just yet and so I’m having to watch the archies comics there good but not much like Riverdale and for us girls that are my age 12 we want more options a lot of the shows for our age are animated sometimes more leaning towards the boys so if you could get other options that would be great other than that prime is good well there is one more thing a lot of these shows you have to buy or rent ok other than those things its a good app.Version: 8.22
Buggy McBuggington.First off, on the Apple TV version, you get a look at the interface... which you can’t interact with and then it pulls you out to a splash/logo screen. Then you get put back to the main screen... when it doesn’t crash, which it often does. When you watch a show, it rarely keeps track of where you are and you will find yourself having to search though episodes the next day to figure out where you left off. This is also true for the iPad/iPhone versions. Maybe Jeff can sell off 1/100,000,000th of this fortune to pay a developer to fix their app and servers so this works. The content is a bit spotty too. Some stuff, like the Expanse is excellent, other shows, not so good, but there is generally enough good on there to keep me happy..Version: 8.13
NO SEPARATE PROFILES / CAN’T PURCHASE FROM APPI can’t believe there’s no option to create separate profiles under one account (like Netflix) unless I’m just not able to find that option? Because of this it gives me suggestions based on previous views of anyone who’s watched anything on my account. It’ll suggest content related to me, my husband’s & my kids past views when I have no interest in what they’re into.
Even more frustrating is how complicated it is to make purchases from within the app or the lack of ability to make purchases from the app. It’s ridiculous that I have to go online and log into Amazon’s website, pay, then go back into the app to watch. It’s been a while but I believe I am able to make purchases within the app when I’m logged in on my TV..Version: 7.7
Not available in your current locationThe app itself is fine, it does what it’s supposed to, however, the content is a huge disappointment. Why on earth would anybody pay a monthly subscription for a steaming service that promotes amazing shows, only to prompt “not available in your current location”. Seriously, 90% of the shows aren’t available, what’s the point?! Thanks for the free month amazon, but even that wasn’t worth my time..Version: 4.7.1
Amazon StackGood app with great shows, but if I’m paying for it I don’t want commercials..Version: 7.0.3
It’s okIt’s good, but having Apple TV support would make this app/service way more useful!.Version: 4.7.1
Decent selection clunky appThe selection is decent and it has good variety but the app is clunky and hard to navigate. Would benefit from being easier to navigate and from a recently watched option..Version: 4.7.1
Chrome castPlease add chromecast support! I would use this service much more but I cannot use it unless on my phone. Many shows are on prime which aren’t available elsewhere, however, like Netflix the offerings for Canada are much less robust than those for the USA. Still my kids enjoy it. But I can only use this streaming service from my computer and even then is a tedious thing. Chromecast support would really help..Version: 7.0.4
TrashAds on a paid service. ZERO class amazon..Version: 8.20
Like Netflix but worseIt’s nice to use from time to time, especially since it’s all included with our prime membership, but it is definitely lacking in many regards.
The titles are limited and often older or low quality. The few higher end tv shows or movies that sneak on are extremely over advertised (I was seeing Jack Ryan trailers for MONTHS). I’m not sure if this is due to it being a Canadian account, but Canadian Netflix has plenty of options still.
The app is clunky, but works good enough. The option to skip ahead or back with screen taps is nice. It’s a real shame that it isn’t compatible with Apple TV or chrome cast though..Version: 6.2

TOO MUCH ADS ON STACKTVLet’s start with the Pros:
- the base sub, which is included with your Amazon Prime Sub, has some solid viewing options, including some good Anime and movies
- a lot more viewing options than before
- love the partnership with Global and StackTV
The BIG CON:
- too much ads with StackTV. I don’t understand how, in today’s age, you pay for a sub and STILL have to go through the pain of ads. And not quick 5-second ads either, but a full minute. You’ve already subbed to StackTV, you don’t need to watch full 1-minute ads of the shows you can watch on StackTV. AND you don’t have an option to skip these ads, you have to literally watch the whole duration of the ad. It’s really annoying, especially since you’re already paying for the sub. It should be like Spotify or YouTube, where you don’t get ads at all.
And for that reason alone, I am only rating this app a 3..Version: 8.40
Recent update may have caused a bugSo usually I have no issue casting prime shows TJ my TV, however, since this new update I haven’t been able to cast to my device.
