I've been working on a small project since 2016, and it's about time to let all you lovely duders know about it.
Say hello to GBTV!
Why am I making this? Well, I've been using the Video Buddy app for years, and I've loved using it, but it was beginning to fall behind in terms of iOS feature support, and Giant Bomb video shows (sorry soup_menu!). Over winter, I got some ideas for how I would have a GB video app work, so I started to make the app, having no idea if I would ever release it, but here it is!
Subscribe to your favourite shows!
Get a push notification when a new video is posted in your favourite shows.
Download your favourite shows!
Download any episode of any show, and watch them offline.
Picture-In-Picture (iPad only)
Watch your favourite videos whilst doing other stuff!
Sync playback position between giantbomb.com and your Apple devices!
Never lose your place again on any video.
Works on iPhone, iPad and Apple TV
One App Store download gets you the app on all your devices, with your initial set up synced using iCloud.
Why should I use this app instead of Video Buddy/Burger/QLCrew/Giantbomb.com etc?
Hopefully, some of the features I've added appeal to you. However, all those places are still great places to get your GB fix, and all of them offer some features my app does not (yet) have. I just hope to offer my own take on this sort of thing.
What About Android Support?
In a previous life, I was an Android developer, but it's been a long time since I have done any large scale Android development, so I have no plans for an Android app so far. These plans may change though (especially if you hassle me enough about it :x)
Thanks, and I hope you enjoy GBTV!
