Apple Developer App User Reviews & Comments

OK. Fixed synch favoritesOriginally was syncing my favorites but latest update seems to be ok on that. Good app, good example of standard UI guidelines and components but unimaginative. Does its job well..Version: 8.2.2

Still not support iPhone XIt’s been more than a week since iPhone X launch day, but this WWDC app is still compiled by Xcode 8, not full screen on iPhone X. Ironically, Apple uses WWDC app as an example to teach iOS developers how to program for iPhone X. I believe it’s unacceptable for Apple to have apps not adapting to their flagship product..Version: 6.0.2

Schedule is not up to dateFor some reason the schedule is not at all up to date with what’s posted on the WWDC website. If this were fixed I could actually use this app to organize my days with the Favorite function. Please fix ASAP!.Version: 7.3.1

2019When is the update for this year coming just asking because I get so excited for WWDC each year.Version: 7.2

Video speed controls lacking!!You neither let us import downloaded videos to video player apps nor has implemented percisioned (by 10 percent) video playback controls. I need to watch the videos with 70 to 200 percent faster speed but I can’t through this app and have resort back to watching it on my MacBook (on Chrome which lets me do so by an extension). Why?! Really why can’t you understand such a fundamental feature?!?!.Version: 7.3.2

Maybe reverse how Schedule was doneI liked the last year Schedule better. This one is a bit weird / confusing to use. Other felt more natural. I want to keep switching between Sessions and Starred Sessions but then I have to scroll back and forth.Version: 7.0.1

UnstableWill crash every time I click on “platform state of the union”on my iPhone 5s. It is pretty disappointing. Videos on developer website not very compatible with my non-apple tablets(also disappointing in 2020), but I wasn't expecting this level of incompatibility with an Apple device!!.Version: 8.2.3

Not true XcodeThis isn’t the Xcode you’re thinking of. They hyped this like it was going to be the full Xcode experience on your mobile device. It seems like it’s just a tutorial app on what Xcode is. But it is not a developer program like it is titled. Waste of time. Honestly feel the reviews are fake or forced by paid users..Version: 8.3.1

Good app. But PIP has issuePicture-in-picture doesn’t work as expected. When I tap to transition from PIP mode back to full screen video mode, the video pauses. Why?.Version: 8.2.3

Speed controlsThe app is not bad but the interface is interface is is very cluttered and there is no way to speed up the video. Of the two, I’d forgive the interface issues if I could speed through the video at 1.5 or 2x’s, slowing down for the sections that are new and unfamiliar. Right now I’m watching the videos in WebPlayer off the developer site and marking them as viewed in the WWDC app, in the hope that someday the dawn will break, the birds will sing, and most significantly of all, the app will allow me to speed up video..Version: 7.0.2

Latest update crashes on launchSeriously? This is *the* app from *Apple* where you learn how to *make apps* and it crashes on launch? Even when it does work, it likes to take you back to the initial view when you launch, forgetting you were several screen in and way down the list watching videos. This app does not “delight the users” like all apps are supposed to. Like others have said, the 2018 version may look sexy but the 2017 version was so much more usable!.Version: 7.1

Weird accessibility bugsThe app is weird. The state of the favorite button isn’t announced normally by VoiceOver. Article headings can’t be focused with explore by touch. The adjustable page indicator doesn’t respond to VoiceOver”s adjust value. Scroll position jumps all over the place when reading articles with VoiceOver. I wish this set a better example of accessibility..Version: 8.2.1

Would like to see an option to speed up videosThere’s a lot of videos to watch. I’d like to see the option to speed them up so I don’t have to sit through all of them..Version: 6.0.3

App has great potentialThe app works great in both iOS/iPadOS and, recently, macOS. The navigation is logical and and I’m able to find things easily. This app has some great potential to be a great resource for development on Apple platforms. I would personally love to see support for browsing documentation and viewing the developer forums in the app if possible..Version: 8.2.1

Disappointing and has unacceptable bugsWould give 0 stars if possible. There is no way on iPad to control playback speed. There are so many videos to watch developers need to be able to easily increase playback speed if desired. Tried downloading video hoping this would allow access to speed control. Still no controls for speed and worse yet there is a bug where you are not able to delete the downloaded video so it will take up large amount of space on device forever. These are basic things and it is unbelievable Apple developers created this app and that these basic things don’t work. Very disappointed. Please at least provide a way to delete a downloaded video. Running iOS 12.3.1 on iPad Pro. Desktop version seems to have speed control but didn’t really want to watch the videos on Mac. Prefer to watch on iPad..Version: 7.3.1

Better and better but still has bugs/missing thingsThe new speed control is great. I enable subtitles when watching videos though, and on my iPad if I pause the video, close the app, and reopen it, the subtitles are gone and don’t come back even when turning subtitles off and back on again. It would also be great if the app could properly restore the application state, since it tends to get jettisoned in the background quite easily..Version: 8.1.1

No back button on filtered screenGuys, it’s impossible to go back to previous screen after choosing any video on search result screen. There is no navigation bar..Version: 6.0.3

Can’t turn off Badge NotificationsThis app has no setting (even in Settings app) for turning off badge notifications, or for controlling how notifications appear in general..Version: 7.3.2

No more Dark Mode?The iPhone and iPad version of this app are not dark mode capable on iOS 13. Both my iPad and iPhone have dark mode enabled and the app is bright to look at night..Version: 7.3.2

Crashes constantly on iOS 12.4Crashes constantly on iOS 12.4. It crashed and kept crashing upon starting. I had to reinstall the app to get it working again and it crashes all the time while using it. I don’t have the option to upgrade to iOS 13..Version: 8.2.2

Great app... if you don’t searchAfter you search, the navigation bar disappears and you can’t search for another video until you force quit the app..Version: 6.0.3

Doesn’t work offlineI have videos downloaded, but they won’t play unless I’m connected. Scrubbing yields a loading spinner, so it appears it’s not using the downloaded video at all..Version: 7.3.2

Wont send my information when trying to enroll in the developer programKeeps saying connection error every time I scan my drivers license, when my internet is working perfectly fine, i even tried switching to data and the problem is still there.Version: 8.2.3

Worth it for the iMessage stickersGet this for some cool animated iMessage stickers. My biggest beef with the stickers is how come the rocket ship does not have some animation to It? Come Apple, at least the flames animated would be nice..Version: 7.3

Great!Love the app and being on anything. Can we get the Xcode documentation on here. I would like to look through it on my launch with out my laptop..Version: 8.4.1

Why did WWDC remove the 2x playback speed?It’s really crucial to be able to watch these at a slightly faster speed. And while the old app used to have this, the current app doesn’t. What gives?.Version: 7.0.3

A nightmare to enrollScanned my ID and got a message asking me to contact support team. Did so but only got kicked around a few times and was asked to upload photos of my ID to a site *twice*. Then they told me they to had to escalate this case to the operation team and they could not provide an estimation on when it will be reviewed. After a couple days I asked them to contact this so called operation team for an update and was only told there’s no way to obtain an update unless the operation contact the support back. Now I’m just here sitting and waiting forever, which is a completely unacceptable customer experience.Version: 8.3.1

Great appI use it mostly to watch the Apple Events from every year and mostly about other information too! 🙂.Version: 8.3

A Paragon ProviderAn app that provides regular, free, educational content — all while serving as a paragon for UI design, accessibility, and globalization. What isn’t to love and appreciate?.Version: 8.1.1

Issue fixed quickly, good appApple seems to have fixed the brief issue with content not loading. This is a pretty good app and it serves as an easy way to view WWDC videos on the go..Version: 8.2.3

The sign up process is a nightmareJust to be clear, this review only covers a small portion of the app, (the only portion I have gotten to so far.) I tried initially signing up for the developer program through the app, but the app wouldn’t accept my photo id and it didn’t give me a reason why. I gave up on the app after 10 attempts and in summary, since then, I have talked to a few support agents which who told me that I probably had to just try it again and I have been hitting errors such as “You cannot currently ___, please try again later”. I’m sure if things go right this app is a great experience, but when things go wrong there is no direction on how to fix it. I eventually figured out that my payment method was expired and that was the issue, but that was after spending hours combing forums to try to solve the problem myself..Version: 8.2.3

Still compatible with iOS 12This iPhone has iOS 12 and had it downloaded before this and still works fine (thanks apple!!!!).Version: 8.4

Bug reportWhile watching the video and then go back home screen, and there is a floating window and then go back to WWDC app main screen, then tap the floating window back to the full screen and then this app will go black..Version: 7.3.1

Rename it Developer CrashUpdate.... I’ll be damned. Two months later and still crash not fixed. Because that is all it does on iPhone XS Max iOS 12.4. Can’t upgrade phone because Apple famously employed its new feature - eliminate compatibility with older Mac OS devices. On the plus side I bought a refurbished 2019 which is my $3500 bookend because I can’t even migrate data from older Mac to the new bookend iMac because migration assistant, or rather Apple, has decided they need to reset all administrative passwords and promote ALL limited users to ADMINISTRATORS rather than my password server!!!! CONGRATULATIONS APPLE for enticing me to buy into a lockdown worse than CA and NY combined since September 2020. Now it is December 2020 and don’t expect Apple to end lockdown any time soon..Version: 8.4.1

DisappointedDownloaded this app with hope to catch some technology news but after reading in the “Venue Reminders” from June 4th about the all gender restroom and the lack of a fathers room to mirror the “mothers room” available I decided I can get the news I’m looking for elsewhere..Version: 7.0.1

Crashes repeatedly on my iPadI wanted to like this iPad version, but I have not been able to watch a single WWDC 2020 session! The app crashes as soon as I attempt to view a video, attend a developer session, anything. I am certain that Apple will fix these bugs next year. They can hire me to fix maintain this app correctly! This WWDC app does work from my MacBook Pro..Version: 8.2.3

Needs ‘feedback’ partI think there should be a way, in the app, during the meeting, to provide feedback. Eg, on the minimal coffee service and the lack of promised breakfast on Tues..Version: 7.0.1

UpsetI usually very love everything from Apple, but now I will change my mind, because I am so upset every time everything after the new IOS update, there a lot of the apps and information are gone, also not working properly as same as before, the Apple development is making changes a lot, will not recommend people to buy apple products anymore.Version: 6.0.2

Not what i thoughtI would like easy access to my live apps on the go. i wanna see the status as in published & live on the app story. ability to pull down. republish. honestly i want a ton more too but ill build that myself. immediate notifications when you detect errors in the app. as such. i just want a way to do this without a mac. mac old. like. put a rock next to an ipad. thats what you are doing by forcing us to use the mac..Version: 8.2.4

WOW! Apple’s own app doesn’t support iOS 13 Dark Mode!That’s surprising! Apple finally gives us Dark Mode and their own apps don’t even support it. Somebody isn’t giving this app the attention it needs..Version: 7.3.2

Lost favorites with updateSeems that they removed all WWDC videos from 2015. Cannot search to find any of them. And more importantly, lost my previously favorited 2015 session videos. Why would an app ever delete user data? Update: while some of the 2015 videos are now back, some are still missing. For example, Protocol Oriented Design. What gives? Update: 2015 videos have returned as so did all my favorites in the last update..Version: 8.2.4

Better Every YearThe WWDC app gets better every year. It’s awesome that I can start a video on my iPhone, and finish it later on my iPad or Apple TV. It’s also nice that I can mark a session as watched if I happen to have attended it in person. One thing I wish would change, though, is the Favorites view. WWDC19 just ended, and I favorited all the sessions I want to watch, but when I go to Favorites, I have to scroll past all my favorites from 2016, 2017, and 2018. I don’t want to lose those favorites, but it would be nice to be able to see only my 2019 favorites. Thanks for such a great app!.Version: 7.3.2

WWDC?So I missed the livestream and was trying to watch it but it appears not to be up. Shouldn’t it be released by now? Just curious when it’ll be out, thanks!.Version: 7.3.1

Easy to use (mostly)Overall this app is fairly easy to use and helpful for allowing us to access the WWDC content. In response to an earlier review about not being able to delete downloaded videos, this is one area that could use some interface/usage help. Instead of the regular swipe left for a delete option (swiping left just lets you favorite a video or remove the favorite status), you have to visit the video and hold down on the “Downloaded” link to receive a delete option. This mechanic is slightly less intuitive than expected..Version: 7.3.2

2018 Destroyed a good 2017 WWDC appThe new 2018 version of this WWDC app is about useless on my iPad. It violates many of Apple’s own human interface rules! First, none of the session titles are visible (they are cut off). Second, they now use that silly (unprofessional looking) horizontal scroll where there is full bleed on the right margin. It makes it harder for the user to feel they have situational awareness of what is on the screen. Third, it is cluttered now with glyphs — we have spent 3000 years advancing from hieroglyphics — they are nice to have in small doses, but not a screen full of dozens of them. We could go on, but the overall user experience is a huge step backward last year’s app. Now, I’ve lost a great library app for all the videos through WWDC 2017. The programming idiosyncrasies of the app programming libraries are shining through in a most unpleasant way. Wow, did not expect this for the flagship app..Version: 7.0.1

Session TimesAnyone who is going to be there & not currently in California time zone would appreciate appreciate option to see the session times in California time instead of having to translate them in their head. For those outside of your time zone it is very annoying!!! (I first wrote this review years ago).Version: 7.0.1

Video Speed Controls PleaseI would like to be able to watch session videos at greater than 1x speed. Unfortunately the WWDC app doesn’t support that..Version: 7.3.2

Great UpdateDiscover tab is nice, fits in with other Apple apps design, the ability to manage Apple developer accounts are nice, and I love the new app icon..Version: 8.0

Can’t Sign InAfter latest update, when I tried to sign in. It showed unknown error.Version: 8.2.2

You are not an Apple fan if this App is missing from your phoneI said what I said ...Version: 8.1.1

Free International Money Transfer 💸Enjoy high maximum transfers into more than 20 currencies while saving up to 90% over local banks! The cheap, fast way to send money abroad. Free transfer up to 500 USD!AdvertorialVersion: 9.2.1

FlatTalk about flat, black and white.Version: 1.0

Should be able to download the videosWe should be able to download the videos to the iPad..Version: 1.0.2

DO NOT UPDATE TO IOS 9.2Apple has started pushing new hardware onto existing customers with older model devices using a full screen advertisement that annoys you when you're using your phone. Don't update to iOS 9.2 if you don't want that ad, and if possible, don't support Apple in this decision by refusing to purchase any more of their products..Version: 3.0.7

CatalystIt takes only a couple of seconds to see that this app is a port from the iPad version made with Catalyst. Clunky UI, very small font, terrible experience..Version: 8.2.1

Not workingApp coaches every time I open video and other times it says that operation failed videos not working what the use of this app use less waste of time.Version: 1.0.2

Thanks for this!I was just wondering last week why this didn't exist yet. Seems to work well..Version: 8.2

Thanks a bunch! Love what this app has become. :)Thanks to all staff devs, who integrated video, it allows me to be closer to WWDC even though I'm on the other side of the world. Thank you all again ! :).Version: 1.0

RubbishUnless you're a developer, this is pretty much useless. Deleted..Version: 1.0.2

Good app but..Would've thought that since you guys pushed all app developers to update their apps to integrate ios7's new Apis that you guys would've updated wwdc's app at least.. Sincerely, a paying apple developer :P.Version: 1.0.3

Data Eater not coolYou should have an options to allow downloading of video via Wi-Fi instead of cellular. Thank you very much for giving me a hefty bill as your WWDC app just chew through 1.8GB OF DATA by downloading the videos.....Version: 7.0.2

Keeps crashing after iOS 8 UpdateThis app keeps crashing after iOS 8 update..Version: 2.1.2

Mark all as watchedIt would be great if there were a way to mark all videos from previous years as having been watched..Version: 5.0.1

Video lengths neededPlease add video length to video details screen..Version: 3.0.5

Delay the update if you canThe new version 6.0.0 makes all the exisiting videos that the previous version downloaded to my iPad inaccessible. They are still there in the container, as evidenced by the storage used, but the app can't see them. If I try to play one I know was on there, it starts to download it again (I can see by the router lights) - and it doesn't even release the storage from the old copy. If I filter by downloaded videos, no results are found. So, no catcing up on or reviewing 2016 sessions ready for 2017 if you wanted to work offline. Those who are busy and might not get watch the 2017 sessions for a couple of weeks might be better off waiting for a later release. Let's hope a bug fix finds those videos already on the iPad back..Version: 6.0.0

More filtering optionsAs an attendee to dub dub, would be great to be able to filter on videos I've already downloaded as I like to focus on those on the train. Would be nice to also filter on watched and/or downloaded (in conjunction to just favourited).Version: 5.0.1

Please add date and time localisationYou have access to our Timezone and calendar why not put times in the app in our local time this is an international app right?.Version: 8.1.1

WWDCLove the news.Version: 2.0

Great AppThis is a great app for WWDC this year... it has dramatically improved and makes more sense post last years and the years before that..Version: 6.0.0

Only lacking one feature!Great app, lets any developer be close to WWDC without attending the event. Only criticism I have however is the developers whom worked on this app didn't think to consider time zones. If it converted the times of the sessions to the users local time it would be much easier and better..Version: 1.0

No contentCan't see anything in the app. When I try to sign in says "network error" when I definitely have a connection. Tried deleting and reinstalling which did nothing..Version: 5.0.1

Videos not downloadingApp crashes on iOS 8.Version: 6.0.1

The best WWDC companion"You must be signed in to see maps" - looks at AppStore screenshots... :).Version: 1.0.2

AirPlay! :)Thank god that AirPlay issue is fixed. It was driving me crazy. thanks apple :).Version: 1.0.1

Crashes on iOS 8 :(Please fix as I am unable to progress my iOS skills without you :(.Version: 2.1.2

To slowFar too slow to add the keynote video the buzz is gone and I consumed the news in a less than ideal way instead. Lost the excitement.Version: 5.0.1

Thanks appleAppsunloaded.Version: 1.0

Getting around the crashWhen you select a video, the app crashes on iOS 8. However, if you long press the video name, there is an option to "watch video", and that works. It's a great way to see all the WWDC videos..Version: 2.1.2

Stump the Experts regressionThe schedule again makes no mention of Stump the Experts. This makes the WWDC app unusable. It worked fine in the 2014 and earlier versions of the WWDC app..Version: 5.0.1

BrokenWouldn't load any content for me.Version: 5.0.1

Wifi only?Hi Apple dudes, it would be great if the next version allows us to download videos over our cellular networks. Lots of people have much faster cell connections and unlimited data so please let us use it, whether we are in the office or on the road! Keep a warning sure, but don’t prevent cellular downloads!.Version: 7.2

Unsupported VersionGet this message when I launch the app ... "This version of the application is no longer supported. Please update from the App Store" But there's no other version available on the App Store. Why let me download the app if it's not compatible with my device? Running iOS 9 on iPad mini (first gen).Version: 3.0.7

Not authenticatingI loved this app but now it crashes when you go to watch a video on iOS 8.02.Version: 2.1.2

The new update is crazy good!!Even though I'm not attending WWDC this year, just using the app is just as good! I love the new layout and how simple the interface is. They have definitely stepped up their game with this update!!.Version: 6.0.0

Great, But.Now get we have the option of where to store downloaded videos. Internal storage of mac mini is a little bit limited. Also, a rewind video option would be great..Version: 8.2.6

The great way to watch WWDCThe app is prefect, but crashes when running on iOS8..Version: 2.1.2

Needs font size controlFunctionality is good, but the font size in the content panels is too small and is uncontrollable. Needs a little accessability love..Version: 8.2.1

Crashes on iOS8The app will not play any videos or open any sessions on iOS8 :(.Version: 2.1.2


Great app but crashes on IOS8You forgot how much you use something until is stops working. Please fix this for IOS8 - downloading from the developer site lacks the extra functionality of this app..Version: 2.1.2

Most informativeLove it thank you for this lovely app.Version: 2.0

Great but could be greaterThis app is really useful, but a few observations after this week: * The lab scanning thing is buried, why not scan the lanyard? Or perhaps prompt to show it when an iBeacon is present * There’s no way to cancel labs. I went to mine, but it wasn’t marked as attended. I had no way to say I didn’t need it when I received a notification without leaving my session. * I’ve heard lots of people saying they wish they could see who was presenting sessions from the session description. I also really want this feature. The information is in the video, but this is only available days after. * I had to unfavorite sessions I’d watched to remove clutter. It’d be good to have a toggle to hide sessions that have finished. Thanks.Version: 7.3.2

Great most years, but iPhone X update brokenLove the app and content, but on iPhone X I cannot get the pass onto wallet on an account with 2 factor Auth. Please fix before WWDC so I can load up my ticket.Version: 6.0.3

Crashes on iOS 8Great app but unfortunately it now crashes on iOS 8. Please fix.Version: 2.1.2

Awesome AppThanks Apple this sure will help me find my way around and know when everything is on. Only thing i would change would be to Add a feature so we can import events to our calendar.Version: 1.0

GreatReally good and useful app, and the videos work really well..Version: 1.0.2

Great app!Kept me up to date with everything, liked how you didn't have to be a paid developer this year to see all the videos and stuff! Great layout as well..Version: 1.0.2

Lack of HardwareI wait excited every year for the WWDC...… this year I was so disappointed. I was watching and patiently waiting for new hardware to be announced but nothing...… not one thing...… instead I just get lousy and minor software updates...… how ridiculous...… how absurd...… ...… has Apple don't anything this past year?! Not happy!.Version: 5.0.1

Missing informationA promising idea, however, there is not much content in the video section. Missing presentations from 2016 and blurbs for the videos reduce its usefulness for people who do not attend the conference..Version: 5.0.1

Doesn't workIt doesn't work on MacOS Catalina: I have it on my iPad and my iPhone--no complaints; no problems. But on my Mac, it doesn't show anything at all, and doesn't ask for a logon, or anything. I'm removing it now: it's useless. I expected better from Apple...Version: 8.2.3

Crashes on videosCould not watch or download session video: crashes. iOS 8, iPhone 6 plus..Version: 2.1.2
