What's New in Version 3.3
Minor layout improvements and optimisations
Poor Updates - No game stats or analysis,
This app has been poorly thought out, no swipe facility to move between news items ( if and when they are actually written and uploaded), news items don't appear in all appropriate areas. Only match report for 3rd test appeared under Wallablies news no mirror in Lions news.
As for the stats provided - squad stats of the type provided are interesting for 5 minutes and not subject to change until a new player is drafted in. What would be really interesting is players stats for each game played, e.g. Tackles made / missed, metres gained, penalties conceded, line outs won / lost, turn overs won etc.
I can't blame Microsoft for the content as I suppose they can only update the app with the content they are given. Spelling mistakes etc frequently made throughout, so the quality of the proof reading applied has been poor.
Lions fan want to get access to up to the minute information regarding the tour - this hasn't happened nearly often enough.
So I would suggest that Microsoft, and their content delivery partners haven't taken any advantage of the opportunity to demonstrate their ability to deliver a thoroughly engaging app for the dedicated Lions fan.
Must do better.
Fantastic, speedy app, great features!
Sadly I didn't get to see the entire tour but this app ensured I was kept right up to date with the squad announcements and nail biting live updates .
I particularly liked the sea of red 'roar' and reading about the rivalry history.
The images downloaded incredibly fast too. 5 well earned stars for this app from me.
There have been some great improvements to this app; it's now a must have for fans of the tour. The live stats are excellent, and make the app perfect for 'second screen' usage during games. Definitely added to the whole Lions test experience!
