Good but content has deteriorated over last year
Some of the articles being churned out are ridiculous now. I use it generally for the live scores, commentary, and guest articles (for which it is the best app there is by a country mile!)
However, the cricinfo journalists have deteriorated greatly in quality. Osman Samiuddin (Pakistani journalist) wrote an entire article on the best slip catchers, without any credit given to Rahul Dravid, not only a great batsman but also a man holding the world record for the most slip catches. Similarly the English, Australian and Indian journalists are all biased in favour of their home teams, criticising the opposition.
Case in point: before the England South Africa series, Cricinfo actually compared James Anderson to Dale Steyn, claiming the former is in the same league as the latter!
Their regional bias is a smart move from Cricinfo, because it means they will polarise opinions and generate more controversial hits on their websites.
Watch out for Tendulkar bashing - it's the next 'in' thing, as every Tom, Dick and Harry now thinks they know more about Tendulkar's batting than the man himself.
All in all, great app, but tabloid-esque commentary from these 'pundits'. In fact, that's what it's become, a tabloid.
Mr. Farrukh Shahzad
Wow, just so excited to see finally the iPad app for ESPN Cricinfo.
Many many thanks, well done. Looks great graphically n smooth.
Believe me developers I honestly checked for iPad version almost everyday.
Was a fan but not anymore...
I have used this app for years being a cricket crazy kind of dude, but now that the app hasn't refreshed for 2 weeks and aesthetically looks boring I have fallen in love with 'cricbuzz'. You don't get the great articles in numbers like cricinfo but it looks tasty and makes me smile...bye bye cricinfo halo cricbuzz!
