What's New in Version 9.2
Added a Wimbledon themed iMessage sticker pack.
Alerts don't work
I really like this app (apart from the player alerts not working). My favorite feature is that the home screen gives the time at Wimbledon and where I live (Florida) which makes makes life much easier! It's a pain to have to constantly "translate" the time. I wish other tournament apps would do this! Another reviewer had a problem with the schedule. Not sure what the problem is because I see the each day's schedule the afternoon before. Now if they can just get the player alerts working!
The worst app (again!)
This review was written in 2016, but they have done nothing to fix the app since the. If anything, the app is slower than ever!!!
This has to be a contender for worst app design in history. Such a confused mess of swipes, taps, hidden screens, etc. Should I swipe up on the home screen? The app really wants me to, but all that's there is news articles with one line teasers and a ton of wasted space. Or should I swipe right into "news?" Wait, why is there a separate need area… wasn't already seeing a news feed of some kind? Or do I swipe left into Live? Seems reasonable, unless you've already swiped up into the first news feed, in which case you'll have to swipe all the way back up to the top in order to swipe either left or right.
Or maybe I should click on the random grid icon in the upper left? Wow, looks like there's a completely different app with a totally different (and possibly better) navigation design in there.
Seriously, what is going on with this app?
Alerts don't work and doesn't update the score
This app 2 years ago was great. On the scores and results screen there was a refresh button you could press if you didn't think the scores were refreshing. Nowadays, there is no refresh button and the app hardly refreshes. I have to constantly completely exit from the app for it to refresh. I also have lots of players that I follow and that I want to get notifications about but the app for some reason now refuses to send me notifications. Other than these two things the app is fine but these things are essential when using the app.
