Teams for new season - Auto-play for video
Please amend Auto-play so it can be turned OFF (or ON) in the settings and that instruction STICKS , rather than have to turn it OFF each time a video is played.
Also, when the Results/ Fixtures/ Table of a particular league or competition in RUGBY are chosen, please keep to that same league/ competition when then moving to view Table/ Fixtures/ Results. So, when moving between Table, Fixtures or Results views, always stick with the league or competition chosen until a different one is chosen (no matter whether viewing Table, Fixtures or Results at the time). You need more journalists to report on English Championship games. To whom can CVs be submitted? 🤓🏉💚😎🏉🏆🍀🤓
Unclear voting system
This app is definitely getting better and better, but when following live coverage, we are presented with 👍🏼 and 👎🏼 voting options for item of commentary... but it’s really unclear if we are voting “Agree”/“Disagree” about the opinion being expressed, or “Like”/“Dislike” about what happened in the sporting event.
I suspect therefore we end up with fairly meaningless user interaction/feedback... let’s just take the photo you put up of the poor mechanic Kimi Raikkonen drove over. You say “Let’s hope he is OK” and this currently has 103 likes and 53 dislikes!! Presumably this is 103 people who hope he is ok and 53 who dislike what happened to him... but how do we read the voting when a commentator expresses an opinion how a football match will unfold?
I think this kind of user interaction is fantastic, but don’t be so unintuitive about it!
Terrible lag & freezing UI since last update
I don't know what's happened to this app. It worked fine UNTIL the last update on my iPad 4. But now there's a very strange bug: it constantly freezes/lags (not crashes) for 15-20sec during user inputs - attempting to scroll, menu selections, moving the time position in video playback, etc. Worst of all is this makes it impossible to move the time back-and-forth in videos or to select a specific time, such as pinpointing the start of a specific athletics event at the Commonwealth games.
I repeat: the app doesn't crash but the UI freezes constantly, rendering it near impossible to interact with the app.
Also restarting the app makes no difference and it worked well BEFORE the last update.
