The app is great for keeping caught up with my team's broadcasts. Especially being in a part of my state where our rivals take over every broadcast. The problem is the broad cast is unreliable. The last several times I have attempted to tune in I have spent more time troubleshooting the app than I have listening to the game. The broadcast almost never makes it past the advertisement screen right now. After selecting the desired broadcast it will freeze right at that screen with no audio. This is regardless if I am streaming on WiFi or cellular data. I am constantly restarting, deleting, and redownloading the app. Phone restarts and reconnecting to data or WiFi do not improve the connection either.

Love It BUT…

It was quickly fixed! Thank you!

The 17.4 iOS update broke the app. Nothing works. When choosing a game, you get the spinning circle. Bad timing with tournament season here!

Edit…I’m revising my review below. This is an amazing app if you love college sports. That being said, the broadcasts often have continuous skips, making it impossible to listen to. Last weekend almost every replay was not the replay indicated and they were almost all just broadcast of the radio station broadcast sometime during the day. The Illinois broadcast was the Illinois State broadcast, and it was only 34 minutes long. I don’t understand why you haven’t fixed this. I’m forced to delete this app due to the poor quality and the lack of updates and fixes. I love this app where everything is gathered into an easy format to find just about any team out there. As others have noted, there are dropouts here and there. Another issue is the notification times are off by one hour. If my team is playing at 5, for some reason the notification comes at 4. Other than that I am loving it. This app is a perfect example of what apps were born to do.

Pretty good app with a couple of flaws

Overall, I love this app. I love all the college sports offerings on the app, and I hope that never changes.

My biggest beef lately is that the audio stops when I lock the screen. I feel like this wasn't an issue in the past, but it's plaguing me now. Perhaps there's a setting I'm missing somewhere, but I can't find it. I would love to see a fix for this because why would it matter if the screen is locked if I'm just streaming audio?

One other much more ambiguous gripe I have is related to the fact that I'm blind and there a couple of areas that are herky jerky to use with VoiceOver. I hesitate to call the "your feed" screen inaccessible, but I haven't been able to get a lot of mileage out of it yet. Like I haven't been able to name any college teams that I'd like to get notifications for? It seems like I should be able to though? That said, I've been able to listen to everything I've wanted to, when I want to, so ... I'm really not too worried about this second issue very much.

Anyway, like I said, this is a good app. There's really only one feature that really bothers me. In general, I would say, keep up the good work.
