Camera coverage on prem games
The last two seasons watching the games is soooooooo frustrating. Having played and watched football all my life I find it infuriating that the camera zooms into the players feet the last 20 yards when he receives the ball on the wing. You can't see players arriving in the box. Once the camera zooms back out you are out of sink with the play. Too Mitch time is taken showing or relive the replays and when it gets back to the game the goal kick has been taken and you miss live play. It's getting like American football coverage. We know who the managers are we don't need to see them every two minutes. WHY DOES THE CAMERA ALWAYS LOOK AWAY IF IT LOOKS LIKE A PLAYER MAY REACT BADLY TO A CHALLENGE OR DECISION BY THE REF. WE PAY TO SEE THE FOOTBALL AND WHAT HAPPENS ON THE PITCH. The second half starts and then you decide to put the teams across the screen. If there has been a substitution we will see it. Really is frustrating enough to cancel subscription and just watch match of the day.
I can’t fault the app really. It’s a great source of information and have great analytical articles on the whatever the current headline story is from a pundit of there choice.
Only improvement I would like to see is when you click on sports you have a list of sports to choose from and you select which sports news you’re after, however it would be great if could rearrange the order of the sports. For example I follow the racing news and have to scroll down all the way to the bottom to view this. Yet formula 1 news which I have no interest in is a second option. As I say a small adjustment that could give the app a more personal feel to it would be great.
A few bugs need ironing out
I use this app multiple times daily as it’s a great way to keep up to date with the Football news and watch game highlights for EPL, Championship & La Liga games.
In recent updates however they’ve introduced a couple of bugs that need sorting in order to get the app back to 5 stars.
Firstly there are adverts slotted throughout the headline feeds and it’s almost impossible not to accidentally click on them when scrolling through - this then takes you to another page ‘off app’ which is frustrating.
Secondly there is now a giant great black banner on the videos when you watch them in landscape orientation (iPhone 8) which takes up close to quarter of the screen so obscures plenty of the picture in Football replays. From what I can tell this is just to facilitate an exit button, but why this has to take up so much of the screen I don’t know and I wish they’d remove it.
If they can sort out these issues, particularly the second one, it will be a great app once more.
