We are starting to roll out an update to our Android mobile app. This will help you find what you need and see how to transition to the new app.
In our existing app, the Home screen has some new and highlighted content that will flip by showing you things that we want our fans to know about. Scrolling down you will see rows of horizontal scrollable content. Continue Watching has your most recently view videos, the New with the freshest full length episodes. Originals collects together MotorTrend’s original productions. Shows has other great motoring entertainment. This is followed by Dailies, Extras, MotorSports, and Watch Live.
In our updated app we have introduced a new Home screen and different site navigation to highlight content for you. Our latest episode will be ready for you to play at the top of the screen. Below that you can scroll sideways through popular shows. Scrolling vertically will take you to Continue Watching that has your most recently viewed videos. What’s Trending lets you know what is popular right now with our fans. Live Events will take you to any events that are live now or will be live soon. Past that you can scroll through the most recently posted videos.
In our existing app, there is a left side Menu that expands when you tap on the three lines in the upper left. Using this you can quickly focus your app to the content you want to browse, as well as a link to Logout, Account, Support (our Help Center with answers to the most common questions), and your app version will be displayed at the bottom.
In our updated app we replaced the hidden left side menu with a bar across the bottom for quick navigation to other parts of the app.
Search is the next screen and we have improved the screen to show you recent searches and popular shows so you can get to those quickly. The search box lets you search for shows, vehicles in the shows, and more. It has also will try to autocomplete what you were typing to speed your search. The search results will have a sideways scrolling list of shows, with episode results scrolling vertically below that.
Discover is where you can navigate to shows. It is broken down into different areas. Popular has our most popular content. Shows contains MotorTrend original programming as well as the best of motoring programming. There is also an area for our Dailies, Extras, Live, and Motorsports.
We have added a Saved section. Now you can flag a series to be saved to your personal list. When you first go there it will be empty but you can quickly discover and save shows for next time in the app.
