We are pleased to release a beta of our new Android App (v6). If you are interested, please download the app found here:
If you find a bug, have a comment or even a question, please post the phone type, and the version of android you are currently running on this announcement via a reply. This way we can start to compile a list of devices we have tested this on.
Thank you in advance!
I am writing the community today to let you all know of a rather grave situation we are in. As our Advanced Member community is aware (as they were notified prior to today), AnimeFTW.tv's funds are drying up. We foresee 2 maybe three months at the current course until we will have to shut down our services.
I've spent countless hours going over our finances, trying to figure out where we have gone wrong, and what we can do to remedy the issue. We've reinstalled servers to remove unnecessary control panel licenses on our video servers (600/year total), and have made attempts to curtail any growth spending we had been doing (see: ads). However with the not-to-distant setback with us getting removed from the official Kodi addon, again, we are faced with a dwindling subscriber base, which is starting to impact our future abilities to afford our server setup.
So this message is one of angst, i've spent countless nights lying awake trying to figure out ways we could make some money to pay for the server bills. We tried to get merchandise to sell, but after an initial wave no one has bothered to buy anything (in months!), so we haven't been able to recoup costs from those.. So sadly, it's come down to opening up a monthly donation drive. While I'm not necessary thrilled about this, if we want to continue to spread our love of Anime in High Quality, there is no other way.
You will find that there are now donation buttons lying around the site, the lead you to this page feel free to read up on the full list of reasons behind having to open the donations, and what our costs are to stay online.
Yes, we are allowing all our members to understand the costs we have been footing for the last few years (including the new DDoS mitigation services), so that we are all aware of what it takes to continue operating a site such as this.
We have amazing things planned, a Roku channel, an iOS app, an improved Android app and a plex addon, all to compliment our existing apps and addons. But if we lose funding now, we won't be able to get those to market.
So if you have some spare change, we would really appreciate any help you can give. The donations will rotate each month, your first name will be listed in the donors list (if you PM an admin we can change it to your username if you'd like), and we will be forever grateful for your help in continuing our mission; to bring high quality anime, old and new, to the masses.
We are looking for a graphics artist that can build us some website additions, the format would be based off the site theme (so that they look like they were built for the same theme).
If you are interested, please PM me, I can explain further :D, thanks!
Tanjoubi omedetou Mimby! From all of us slackers, we hope you have an awesome day :D
Hey Anime Fans! After the DDoS attack on the website, finally getting back in the swing of things and have a long list of new, finished and updated anime for you.
1080p OVAs, Series, & Movies - Available to Advanced Members Only
720p OVAs, Series, & Movies - Available to Advanced Members Only
480p OVAs, Series, & Movies
As some of you are aware, with the transition to the DDoS provider our ability to utilize the beta of the android app ceased!
The developer behind all of the existing versions graciously donated some more time to bring a very simple, yet effective, android app for everyone to use called "AniLite".
You can download the apk here, the install location topic has been updated, removing the beta and including this lite version.
We had to proceed with this solution as our currently commissioned Android developer has yet to produce a usable solution for us. While we figure out what we are going to do (either drop the project and go to a new developer, or wait it out), we wanted our beta users to have the ability to log in to a functioning app.
It may not be the prettiest, but it works, with full search functionality you can have access to any series you previously could in the beta.
This is meant to be an in between app, to allow all our users to stay online while we work towards bringing the version 5 app online.
Please direct any questions or comments to this thread, thanks!
A variety of bugs have popped up over the last week due to our migration to the new DDoS mitigation service. Mostly, there were a lot of logout bugs associated with how the new service handled inbound requests, it made my very secure session handling system cranky!
Fret not, I believe I have fixed it with a different approach to session security, you may have noticed that you were logged out, my apologies, but that was necessary to properly facilitate the emergence of the new system =D
Along with our new session security, we've made bug fixes around the site to smooth out some of those nasty bugs that have been lingering for a while. You'll notice that profile comments and episode comments will post the first time you fill them out!
There are some other query enhancements under the hood that should help speed up the site just a little bit more :)
As always, if you find a bug in need of extermination, please post it up!
