Ratings and Reviews
Good as is, but I have one suggestion
The app functions exactly as intended, with little to no bugs or glitches that I could find, and overall I think it’s a great supplement to the game and improves the overall experience of the show to be able to purchase and open packs, as well as see news, and access the community market, all when you’re away from your console. The only thing that held me back from a 5 star rating is the fact that as far as I can tell, there’s no way to view or manage your squads. I think that’s the only place where the app misses the mark. You can view your inventory, but that leaves a bit to be desired as it only shows cards you own, not the ones you currently use. The simplest solution I can think of is to have a “squads” or “squad management” tab where you can swap cards in and out, as well as check their attributes, and their stats. In total, I think the companion app in its current form is very convenient and definitely a plus, there’s just one or two quality of life improvements that could be made to ensure a more user friendly experience
Definitely needs work
It’s definitely easier to do stuff with the market but the app is super slow glitchy there’s a glitch if you place a ton of orders the app will glitch out and keeps saying fetching data it’s annoying you have to wait a few minutes and restart the app, it’s also very annoying that they won’t let you do collections and exchanges on the app personally I’d still recommend getting the app if you’re someone who trying to get stubs but if not there’s really no purpose and the app is super glitchy at the same time. Oh yes please stop logging me out and just keep me logged into the app I get it’s easy to get back in its kinda just like why is it logging me out anyways. It would help the app get downloads if they added a feature on the app that isn’t available on console, also it would be cool if they added a market notification bell maybe add a little trivia section where you get quizzed on baseball facts to earn small amounts of stubs kinda like 2ktv it would be a fun thing to add I know it’s a far fetched idea but it would be cool if they made it to where instead of having to put buy orders separately they allowed you to just put a specific number of how many you want the last thing I have to add is please clean up the look of the app a little it looks significantly more dull than the game and it honestly is kinda a eye sore imo I also
Great Usability - Performance Could Use Improvement
From a usability perspective this app is great! I can much more easily play the market than I can in my console. In fact when I’m playing the game and I earn packs instead of opening them in the console I pick up my phone and open them in the app because I can much more easily see the market value and sell my dupes on the spot with the app interface.
I only gave 4 stars because of a few (but tolerable) performance issues. The app loads and processes actions slowly in general which isn’t a huge deal, but it seems to freeze up for a few minutes every so often with a perpetual loading screen, especially when I’m in the middle of placing a lot of buy/sell orders. I have to wait a few minutes and relaunch the app and it loads, but I lost my place and need to find it again. I sure hope SDS fixes this issue soon.
