Ratings and Reviews
Forces notifications you don’t ask for
I’ve been a longtime reader of the Football Italia web site. The app allows you access to that content but also additional content in the world of football. You can also customize what teams you’re interested in following for notifications.
But that is all a lie. The Football Italia app will ignore your stated preferences and spam you with whatever notifications it wants. I got headlines for England defeating San Marino to qualify for Euro2016, which has nothing to do with my interests or my stated requests for notifications. With spam like this, I cannot even disable messages like that so my only choices are to turn off all notifications or delete the app.
Only a fool would make an app that ignores your stated wishes and promotes its own agenda.
Same as Twitter
I downloaded this app since I am a dedicated fan of Serie A and am always looking for news about the League in English. However, this app seems redundant if you follow them on Twitter, the same articles that appear on Twitter are on the app. Also as a fan of a smaller club, Atalanta, the specific information about them is severely lacking; my customized news for Atalanta is just their Twitter feed (in Italian). Could be so much better, but at least I can't complain about the price.
More or less useless
Unless you're that interested in your favorite Italian team, that you wanna when they had lunch and what they had, you might as well be better off with anything else in the App Store. I thought this was going to be an easy option of getting the news from the main site, yet they only offer some blog posts and links from which ever team you desired to follow. It's more or less 1/10 of the web version. In this case no news isn't that good of news.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
