What's New in Version 7.2.5
• General Improvements
So many ads, and a battery-killer to boot
I'm a bit of a lapsed hockey fan - grew up in Detroit during the "Dead Wings" era, thrilled to the great teams of the 90s (especially after moving to New England in '97), but eventually saw my interest wane a bit. Bumped up briefly when the Bruins won the Cup a few years back, but no longer know the young players, most of the goalies are unknown to me, coaches are all behind the wrong benches, etc.
I do, however, keep the NHL app on my devices, just in case. Don't have a membership/subscription. Saw the name of the player who scored the GWG in Game 3 of the finals and was pretty sure he played for the Sharks, but checked the app to be sure and watch highlights. I couldn't believe that I was expected to watch an ad before EVERY highlight - just awful.
On top of that, I noticed my iPad's battery seemed to be draining faster than usual later in the day, and discovered that the NHL app had used 13% of my battery! The real kicker: it was the foreground app for only 7 minutes, but was running in the background for 3.7 HOURS. Completely unacceptable, especially from MLBAM. Hard to justify keeping the app installed.
This app is no doubt the go-to app for hockey fans. The schedules and scores are very simple to see. You also have the ability to watch the majority of the goals in any game. The only frustrating part of this app for me are the ads before the videos. There are times where you will literally have to watch a 30 seconds as before every single video and most of the time the ad will be the exact same one every single time. I wish they would add a $0.99 option or some reasonable price to skip ads.
I've been checking this app quite a lot recently do to the Stanley cup playoffs I honestly love this app,because of the fact that you can check all upcoming games,scores,standings, news,and many other things. So before I end this review I would like to say thank you for an awesome app and I will be watching the Stanley cup finals. Ps
