Freezing & unresponsive

Used to be my go-to sports app but, since installing the iOS11 update, the app now continually freezes, rarely responds to screen clicks when trying to access articles & the scrolling function keeps jamming on live feeds. Constantly find myself having to shut the app down & restart. This is the only app I’ve had the problem with & seems to coincidental for it not to be linked to the Apple iOS update. Very frustrating & rapidly losing patience

Unclear voting system

This app is definitely getting better and better, but when following live coverage, we are presented with 👍🏼 and 👎🏼 voting options for item of commentary... but it’s really unclear if we are voting “Agree”/“Disagree” about the opinion being expressed, or “Like”/“Dislike” about what happened in the sporting event.

I suspect therefore we end up with fairly meaningless user interaction/feedback... let’s just take the photo you put up of the poor mechanic Kimi Raikkonen drove over. You say “Let’s hope he is OK” and this currently has 103 likes and 53 dislikes!! Presumably this is 103 people who hope he is ok and 53 who dislike what happened to him... but how do we read the voting when a commentator expresses an opinion how a football match will unfold?

I think this kind of user interaction is fantastic, but don’t be so unintuitive about it!

Terrible lag & freezing UI since last update

I don't know what's happened to this app. It worked fine UNTIL the last update on my iPad 4. But now there's a very strange bug: it constantly freezes/lags (not crashes) for 15-20sec during user inputs - attempting to scroll, menu selections, moving the time position in video playback, etc. Worst of all is this makes it impossible to move the time back-and-forth in videos or to select a specific time, such as pinpointing the start of a specific athletics event at the Commonwealth games.
I repeat: the app doesn't crash but the UI freezes constantly, rendering it near impossible to interact with the app.
Also restarting the app makes no difference and it worked well BEFORE the last update.
