Is it good?

Fancy Bits, LLC has put efforts and engineered a sophisticated live app. What makes it successful? It is very easy to use for such a solid entertainment app with built-in devices features. Well, as a top-performing app with an overall rating of 4.71 I can only add what people who have tried it are saying.

11 new features, 9 feature improvements and SIXTEEN fixes in this latest version — and that's for a product that was already rock-solid and easy-to-use! The Channels developers are simply unmatched in their dedication to their platform, product, and users. This new version is the result of near-daily updates to their beta versions (which are often updated themselves several times PER DAY). I have never seen developers so responsive to their users. Thanks!
I've been using Channels for years on the iPad and Apple TV and have been very happy with it. It works flawlessly. I'm especially happy with the current version(s) that work equally well on the M1 MacBook Air. Unlike a lot of iPad software, either the app is prevented from running by the developer or is unsuited for real use because of screen scaling or some other issue. Not Channels, it just works. Thanks for a great app.
