What's New in Version 8.1.3
• General performance improvements
Quality has improved but..
MLB has done a good job this year with a smooth roll out for the 2015 season.
I do, however, have a couple of issues with the format.
For starters, the new game recap articles are spilt between both team's writers and it is quite possibly the worst idea so far for the app. I enjoying reading an article with a little bit of bias in it. After all, I am following a certain team, I need to feel a connection with the person writing it or it's not interesting.
My second issue is, the cut4 articles are garbage. It's a failed attempt to blend mix pop culture with the sport. I understand the need for a more youthful following, but that is not the way to go about it. The external links are also very annoying. It's almost as bad as those click bait articles you find all over social media. Please remove cut4 from the articles section and replace them with real baseball news.
I rarely ever write reviews and I've been an iPhone owner since day 1 and upgrade even year and use a lot of apps. That said I'm terribly disappointed in the MLB app this year. It's performance on my iPhone 6 plus has been terrible. The picture quality even on my 100mbps home wifi is 480p SD at best. Try and watch it somewhere without wifi and I end up getting kicked off and sent to the audio only feed. And then I'm lucky if I can even keep the audio feed on. I live in a major city with good LTE pretty much anywhere I'm at and for some reason I can't get this app to work like it has in years past. I'll watch baseball highlights of the new ESPN app on my phone and they look phenomenal. Cmon MLB. FIGURE IT OUT!
I'm confused with so many of the poor reviews for this app. I've been using this since the start of the season and the performance, interface, and stability have been absolutely perfect. Scores update quickly, audio and video work perfectly. Are people confused by blackout rules? If you purchased this app to watch live video of your local teams, then you've made a mistake. This app is easy to use and well-designed.
