Much improved, with one pretty significant glitch

The app is new for the 2017 season and is great for showing, using, and transferring tickets from the Hornets Account Manager. It also introduces Buzz Bucks used for in arena payments, but the big glitch: I can’t access that screen anymore! When first installed, I noticed the Buzz Bucks accessed from the Arena section. Now, when I tap on the Buzz Bucks icon, it takes me to manage my tickets, as if I had mis-tapped the ticket button next to it. So, as of now, I can’t use the Buzz Bucks for in arena payment. Hopefully that gets fixed soon.


Apple wallet problem is with Apple

Saw review complaining off issues adding tix to Apple wallet with no button being present. This is a problem with the Apple os. Had the same issue with adding an Apple gift card after the iOS 11 update. This is not an issue with the hornets app. I was actually in the Apple store in Charlotte and they were dumbfounded as well. Solved only by deleting everything from the passes section and then adding back in.


Old app

Bring the old app back. Had such a better layout and fluent experience. New app is so laggy and just a big mess. Lots of great features but just a bad layout/interface
