It’s crashing on launch.

For the past few days on the first opening of the day the app just crashes once I have re booted my iPhone 8 it’s fine til tomorrow never had this problem before , also there should be a set min odds function on the bsp.

Update. The crashing is all the time now but only while on 4G and 3G , it’s fine on Wi-fi . This new update must have caused the problem , never had an issue on the 3 network before.

Developer Response ,

Hello, I am sorry for this, There was an issue, which has since been fixed. If this is still causing you problems please try uninstalling the app, and clear cache and cookies, and add the app back on again. If this persists, please advise. Kind regards, Betfair CS

Making my trades that "little" bit harder to pull off…

Hi ladies and gents, just a heads up. I've been doing a bit of trading tonight and have found a slight glitch. For example, if the current lay price is 2.44 and I try to decrease it (yes, I do know how the exchange works. I'm referring to the pop up box that appears when you go to back or lay a bet), it would jump up to 2.98 and refuse to decrease. The glitch would stop for a while if I closed and reopened the event, but eventually would occur again. Pain in the backside and as I'm sure you're well aware, those wasted seconds can make all the difference in a potential trade. Been using the Exchange for a fair few years now, pretty good all round but can be even better once some bugs have been squashed.

Confusing and can’t remember state

Try this: go to horse racing and select a race. Think you’re on a race market? Nope. You need to select see full market to see things like each way, place, etc.

Now close the app to answer a text and then reopen. Note you’re not in the market you just left. The moment you close and come back it’s lost state.

Try and make a bet and it’ll offer some pre-selected amounts to pick from for speed. Great! Now figure out how to edit those amounts - navigate your way there and you pass the test to be a black cab driver in London!

Go back to your texts. Get the notification about winners on a race (nice!), and hit it to open the market to see your winnings. Nope! Back to the home screen, it can’t remember state, remember?

It’s clear since the paddy power takeover the exchange has been not even the second rate focus, but this app gets worse and worse every month with every update, highlighting the lack of investment.

This is a shambles compared to the leaner experience we once expected. Product managed into a corner and left to rot by management, it makes me sad.

It’s not often I leave a bad review on an app, but I know they can do better than this!
