webOSroundup: Review: Super Ads XL

Recommended Posts

App: Super Ads XL

Developer: AClass Apps
Price $2.49 intro sale $1.49 

For many, the Super Bowl is a time to gather around the tube in anticipation of watching the year’s two best teams go head to head. For others, it’s a time to checkout the latest of what has become a tradition itself: the Super Bowl Ads. Now thanks to AClass Apps, we are able to enjoy the collection of Super Bowl ads from the past right on our TouchPads, and soon across a variety of other devices thanks to the power of Enyo! At the time of this writing Super Ads XL has already made its way into the Google Chrome web store. For this review, we are focusing on the TouchPad app.

Setup

The setup could not be easier as there is nothing to it. Simply download the app, open it, choose your ad, and enjoy. As soon as the app is installed you are instantly able to checkout and watch the ads that are available from a number of Super Bowl games.

UI

The UI for the app makes use of the normal sliding panels we all know and love on the TouchPad and other Enyo apps. Each pane makes use of a styled background that is representative of a football field. The left pane displays the groups of ads, sorted by games, along with an option to view your favorite ads. After selecting a game, the list of ads are displayed on the right pane where you can click to view the ad or click the large star to make it one of your favorites. Each video is displayed in a popup window that houses an embedded YouTube player. Clicking the button on the bottom right corner brings up the full-screen mode just like any other YouTube video. Exiting the full-screen mode is done by clicking the center home button. The only feature I felt was missing was a way to share ads via email or other social networks such as Twitter and Facebook. Luckily, a share feature is said to be included in a future release. We are also told there are plans to include a Villo chat room in the app, which should round off the social side of the app in coming updates.

Function

This app is perfect for people who enjoy the Super Bowl ads, more than the game itself. It’s a fun way to pass some time, and the ability to look back at past videos is great. There were many great ones that I simply forgot about. Currently, the app is limited to the past four years of ads, however we are told that more ads will continue to be added as they are found and the app is updated.

Pros

  • Price (introductory sale currently!)
  • Simple to use
  • Enjoying the ads all over again

Cons

  • No sharing ability currently (said to be in future update)
  • Currently limited the past 4 years worth of ads

Bottom Line

Who doesn’t love watching the Super Bowl ads? For $2.49 (currently on sale for $1.49) you can easily browse and watch the ads on TouchPad at any time.

    • Auto sleep after certain inactivity time

      My previous TV (Sony Bravia) has an automatic sleep after a time period without no remote control or TV button interactions. I miss this feature so much. I could set up the sleep time (40 minutes, 1h, 2h ...) on TV setup. Close to timeout, an overlaid message warns about the inactivity time and it'll be soon shutdown. I know my TV 55UM76 allows to use Sleep timer, but it isn't the same thing.

    • You Tube TV issue

      Using the You Tube TV app on the LG Web OS. There is a problem that happens on all my 2019 LG TVs with Web OS that does not happen when I use the You Tube TV app on Apple TV with the same TV sets. Periodically the program I am watching stops and the App reverts to the opening screen. It has to be a bug in LG's Web OS working with You Tube TV. I bought 4 large LG TVs because they could support the You Tube App and Samsung could not. LG, you need to look into this and fix it.
