What's New in Version 2.0.0

A branding change to create a tie in with the Broadcast look and feel
Google analytics bug fix
More performant solution to filtering of content by team
An Elipsis solution to manage extra long headings
Up date to the game to allow sharing of score on Twitter
App itself is worth 2 stars whilst it works, but covered in ads, at least one of which took me to a sponsors site with no close, back or exit option. Had to shut the app and start again.
I'm sure the sponsor is happy that people are being forced to their site and get multiple page hits as they try to leave, but that's the one chance I'll give it.
No landscape option seems very lazy, some videos won't load... etc.
"Live" is closer to "on life support", with few updates and no scores offered. Only real use at the moment is to see forthcoming fixtures.
Add in the very poor response from the "load more" button, which you need to use to see more than 10 stories, and this is a frustrating experience alleviated only by the frequency of the app's crashes. The app closing itself every few minutes is probably one of its better features, as that's about how long you can last until switching to a decent news site.
Poorly made app. Few bugs and glitches need sorting out, especially on the live mode. In my opinion the information on live isn't all that quick. You wait at least 10 minutes before it catches up with the game. And the kick it on live mode freezes the app sometimes. This could be a good app. But the bugs and glitches needs to be sorted quickly. RWC isn't as long as the FWC.
Crash/get with it!
Two things wrong with this otherwise theoretically decent app: 1. Now that tournament has started, can see your news section is sluggish; other news providers all over results half hour before. 2. Crashes way too frequently. So bad, Have had to delete and reload twice. Ain't doing that a third time.
