Just like all their apps being developed by an outside company, there slow on UI an playback buffers being worse than TAN. Watching Maria to see if it's a stinker. But updates should follow on making playback much quicker.

If this story hadn't been up, I was going to add this comment to the end of the thread about Funi finally making it to the PS3... ^^

I just downloaded the app last night, after remembering that Funi was projecting an April release for it. IIRC, the date given on the PS store was 31 March, so it might have been sneaking around for a few days. Now I don't need to keep swapping between my PS3 and PS4 to watch Funi's stuff.

I did notice a bit of buffering while watching the final Maria episode and one of the earlier Rolling Girls episodes (as was common with the PS3 app), but it was nice to finally have queuing available. Funi's been soooo far behind Crunchyroll, but they're at least pretending to catch up.

Finally was able to login later in the day on the day the app came out after being unable to for a while.

Fortunately no particular buffering issues here so far but I haven't used it much yet, even after jumping to a later spot in an episode when I re-watched some Bahamut, Psycho-Pass, and Bebop.

Agreed, it's about time they got their app on PS4.

Haven't had any issues with any of their apps here (PS3, PS4, Roku, and the site.) Granted, it probably does help that I have a Gigabit connection.
