Mixer is a great streaming platform, but the iOS app needs some work

Mixer brings to Twitch some good competition, but Microsoft really needs to step up its app game.

Microsoft purchased Beam over a year ago to push video game broadcasting into the forefront of Microsoft's efforts. Since then, Microsoft changed Beam's name to Mixer, integrated it into Windows 10, and increased its functionality on the Xbox One. It's a solid streaming service that focuses on quick interaction with viewers and streamers engaging with audiences. Mixer is available on a number of platforms, though there notably isn't a first-party UWP version, and I recently took the iOS version for a test run on my iPad Pro.
Using the app showed its potential to be a great way to view streams but also highlighted flaws in the iOS version of Mixer.
