Ratings and Reviews
Thorough but newsfeed is a mess
Too many repetitive news items. The news feed will have consecutive posts of the same injury news from different sources when only one post would suffice. If it’s Wednesday there are often injury notes for Thursday or even Friday’s games clogging up the feed—this tool works best in the very short term and there should be a sort or filter option so the user can tune out the information that does not pertain to the current day’s slate.
This app ALWAYS has one function or another that is broken and not working. When that happens, it’s also very common for that function to be broken FOR WEEKS. When you contact customer service, they are rude, condescending, and completely unhelpful. They not only dance around the question, but they NEVER are able to give a timeline for when the broken function will resume functionality. At best, they say they know of the problem and are “working on it,” even when the problem has persisted for over a week. They don’t give two s*its about their users. If I could give negative stars, I would. Even worse, hours after a player was ruled out, their “news” not infrequently still says the player is questionable. It’s a good thing they don’t try to charge for this app.
Rough start to 2020 NFL season
At the start of the season, the data was not loading or was wrong. I’m sure DraftKings was aware and I tried to get confirmation and updates via app feedback and Twitter. I received no response.
In addition to this poor lack of support, the app enables too many notifications by default. I had to manually access each sport and change the notification options for each. And when I did that, the list of sports wasn’t populating any text so I had to rely on haptic feedback to make sure I was actually scrolling to the next sport.
This app is inconsistent and support is bad so I can’t give them more than 3 stars right now.
