Ratings and Reviews
Now May 2019. Please fix it? It stalls frequently when you go to the pitch view. Remember the fix is to delete, switch off and on then reinstall. There is the claim by some that this must be my device’s fault? Well I have had 4 iPads with this app and they all do it. IPad, iPad mini, iPad Air 2 and now iPad Pro 11inch 2018. ...all with the operating systems set to automatically update. So do you really think it is my devices?
Back down to 2nd May 2016
No updates in over a year. It doesn't work for me; it's hung again and I am deleting it and reinstalling one more time. I wish they would sort this out properly! It's great when it works hence the couple a five star reviews. But you five star review of people I warn you enjoy it while it last because it will go wrong and you will have to delete and reinstall!
Ok to fix the not working issue, you have to delete the app... Reboot and only Then redownload/reinstall the app. Which the ECB could have told us that... Typical!!
Ah... Looks good now. Rebooted the iPad and the bug was removed it would seem.
So've upped to 4 stars now!
How bizarre, ppl say this is great, but on my device it opens ok, but if I click on a g for more details I just hangs... Without fail. It locks in a green screen that looks like a schematic of a cricket ground?
Is it really just me!!
Perhaps I'm being stupid.
Apple Watch app doesn’t work properly
The app itself works well on the iPhone and gives me updates on matches I follow promptly.
Unfortunately the Apple Watch app is useless, it updates it’s data (scores etc.) at launch but then never updates again until the app closes through me running several other apps to push it out of RAM. This makes it absolutely pointless since checking the score is always hugely out of date unless I mess around opening loads of apps to force it to quit.
What is all the criticism about?
This app is truly amazing... It has ball by ball comprehensive reviews of all the big games and has options for heat map, player info and you get to choose what you see on the game-map... Simple but brilliant... Except not simple, their are a lot of different modes and many reviews complain about this, however, if you spend a good fifteen minutes learning them you WILL get the hang of it. As for crashing it's probably your device not the app...
