Customer Reviews

This app needs improvement

Improvements needed:
1. After tip off of first game, the app does not let you see all your picks! It only shows picks for the current round.
2. The UI for adding a bracket to your own group is cumbersome, and it forces you to enter the group password for each bracket that you add, even though the screen is already displaying the password.
3. App"s Bracketcast feature does not remember group mode, you need to select your group each time you go to Bracketcast.
4. Bracketcast group mode does not show you the names of owners of the brackets in your group.

Not Useful

I didn't find out about this app until after the tournament started. I wouldn't expect to be able to enter the challenge for a prize, but I still would like to make a bracket for fun and see how my bracket compared to others. A non-competitive bracket making option that you can make any time would be great. It would also give NCAA athletes a reason to use the app because they aren't allowed to enter these competitions if there is an opportunity to receive money or some kind of prize.

Easy to use. Would be nice to have team messaging.

This app makes it very easy to select your teams for the bracket and provides nice summarized data to help you make your choices. I think it would be nice to have a messaging service to communicate with your team to be able to congratulate or just talk smack.
