Can't play live
Doesn't actually stay current with the show. Seacrest will be still rattling off the question when the app shuts down your ability to pick an answer.

Not ready for prime time
Maybe next year, but I realize this was a tough implementation to pull off. Regular game play is great. Live play with the show was very clunky. Played with almost every show, only once did it work without rebooting then re synching. Had to relaunch and synch at least 3 times per episode. Even worse, your math was wrong. You give TV contestant credit for a double point answer but not the mobile player. Each of these are enough reason to stop playing. Here is your problem -- the kind of people who "play along" will change the channel all together if they can't play along with proper scoring & a well-synched app. Probably the first time a social app led to a ratings decline. Finally, don't know of anyone (literally anyone) on the West Coast that could play along with the finale. Are you kidding me? Was the code dependent on the East Coast game clock? Weird since the app knew the show was on. Also, why not let people exit to the menu after a failed synch or live game play. App wasn't designed consistently...why should I have to reboot to re synch? Always make the main menu available. GREAT idea. This has TONS of potential. But the minor bugs are simply too much. Can't wait to play next year after a year of further development! Good Luck!

Nope
App has some serious problems. I am able to play (unlike most people), but it barely works. The live sync is malfunctioning - most of the time it doesn't allow me to answer, it doesn't keep score correctly, and (of course) it isn't synced with the live show. Some good ideas here...just hasn't been executed well.

Buzz kill!!!
Couldn't wait to download this after seeing the show, but it will not allow me to play with random people and can only play itch live streaming.

Great concept, but when you play live...
Great game idea and gameshow idea. When you play online against other players, there are no problems. When you play live with the tv show, the game tends to speed up ahead of the show. At some points, Ryan Seacrust would have just started reading the question when your timer to answer within 5 sec starts running down. It's miserable to play live, because you don't do as well. This needs to be fixed for the app to get 5 stars, and this is the only thing holding it back.

Update killed it
Updated to new version and once I get into a game and answer a question it disconnects me when it's checking the answers.
