What's New in Version 1.7.2
- Improvements to live text commentary pages
- Performance improvements when loading stories
Seems like a very good app, however...
Installed easily, simple navigation to access all sports/teams articles and very little wait browsing from one article to another, even though that would normally depend on the user's network throughput... However when accessing videos within an article the audio does not work with my iPad (running iOS 8.3). And that's after several attempts with different articles containing embedded vids. Have not attempted with my iPhone, however I do have the BBC Sport app installed on that device as well.
Repair this glitch and it's a top shelf app in my opinion.
