Great idea, mediocre execution
Many reviews mention the vertical scrolling bug, which I find annoying but it doesn't happen all the time. My main concern is that the app is too limited: there needs to be a page that displays news from all of your favorite players across sports, I know I would find this useful for a quick glimpse at my guys. Additionally, there is a 'nfl draft' section, but no 'nba draft' when this time of the year is hugely important for college players making their case for entering the nba. I thought perhaps they might shift the nfl draft to nba once the nfl draft concludes, but this would not leave enough time to properly fill out this section before the draft. Given this years nba prospects are considered some of the most promising in years, it seems like it would be in the app's interst to cover them.
Broken scroll functionality makes app unusable
I have been a long time rotoworld fan and visit their website at least 3 times a day during fantasy season, so to have this app provide quick updates is very handy.
However, after the last release, the scrolling functionality is completely broken as other reviewers mention. When you try to scroll up or down to view players, the app constantly registers instead as a left or right swipe. It is beyond frustrating as there is no way swipe properly to fix and it makes the app completely unusable in is current state. If scrolling was fixed, the app would be 4 stars (1 less star for having a subpar interface vs other sports apps).
Not very good
I liked it better before when I could expand the news update from the newsfeed rather than open a new screen.
My biggest complaint is that the recent updates often misinterpret my downward scrolling for a swipe to the right. This is immensely frustrating. It bothers me now even when it's not happening because I'm constantly anticipating it.
I usually turn push notifications off on my apps but this is one where they would be extremely useful for me to get a jump on the competition.
This app hasn't really gotten better with the recent updates, just different. There is still a lot of room for improvement!
