Could be better
I use it mainly from a fantasy golf perspective with a group of friends. The new update has been so frustrating as it makes you login every single time. Please consider adding a simple “save my login information” button or quit making us login every time.
Speaking of the fantasy golf play, the ratings and cost of the players are terrible. It bulks most of the players at the same cost. There is no significant drop off from lower rated players, especially in the $25-32k range. For example, why would I take Jimmy Walker for $32k for this weeks Byron Nelson when I could have Speith for $33k. Walker should be rated around $24k to give any incentive to choose him over another top tier player.
The only thing I enjoy from a fantasy perspective is the scoring system forces you to choose lower tier players so there’s definitely a lot of strategy involved there and also helps you get get to know unknown players.
I have never written an app review before, but after years of using the Golf Channel app with only one complaint (more on that in the next paragraph), I feel compelled to say that your latest upgrade is one of the worst upgrades to any app I have ever used. The fonts are so small that text can barely be seen and so gray that text can hardly be distinguished from the background. There's way too much white space between names and scores and between one name and the next, so you can't gather in a lot of information all at once, and there's no box or line (just the faint word "Leaderboard" separating favorite players from the full field scores.
My one consistent complaint is the backseat that the LPGA takes in the "Tournaments this Week" list and, usually, in the "News" section.
Cmon Golf Channel
You can do better. Other than checking scores I haven’t jumped into this app for much else in a long time. It used to be smooth and made sense. So why the plummeting reviews. It’s just a golf channel app for articles, videos and scores right? They have limitless resources to give you the best app possible right? No really that’s a question that needs answering.
Videos rarely load upon start up then Just wanted to read some articles. Opened one. Read it and tried to watch a video in the article. That was painstakingly ridiculous. The video was clunky and couldn’t be controlled. No landscape? Really? Climbed out of that mess to read the next article and had to scroll back down to where I had left off. So you get air lifted to the top of the whole building every time? Why is simplicity lost update after update? Keep the simple things simple.
