All kinds of bad
The app has been updated since last year and it's only gotten worse. It's still not a native app experience, but merely a wrapper for their website. Secondly, it user experience is plain bad—when in the wagering section of the app, don't you dare hit the "Back" button in the top left or you'll be forced to go through the login process again. And then their WIFI access points are overloaded and "pages" on the app don't load half the time, this is a terrible, terrible thing. This app caused me to miss placing bets on two races, and I ended up using the kiosks the rest of the time. This app is an exercise in frustration.
Additionally, it will cause your GPS radio to stay turned on even when the app is closed—kiss your battery life goodbye unless you go to Settings / Privacy / Location Services and turn it off for the app when not in use.
Great idea, terrible user experience
I was excited to try this app because of the long lines for betting on opening day. I went through the hassle of signing up at the track and while the app worked at the sign up station an hour prior to the first post, I was unable to place bets during the day. I was either sitting in an area where the Wi-fi was not available or I could not log in because the system was overloaded. I spent 15 minutes waiting for it to load 1 time and other times I just gave up as it sucked the juice from my phone. Again great idea but in practice failed miserably.
Works for me!
Not sure what some people are complaining about. The new updates have seriously improved the user experience (for me anyway) and it really does look nice. I've seen nothing but improvements and would highly recommend.
