  • The only thing I’m able to do is start or schedule a stream
  • No onboarding or welcome screen which explains what will happen
  • I guess none of the people I follow or follow me have this app, but I do not get a notification about this
  • On starting a stream, I don’t get any notification that this will be announced with a tweet
  • I’m not able to customize the tweet
  • Everything happens on Twitter, this is good, I don’t have to enter anything about myself at all
