Ratings and Reviews
good but not perfect
I downloaded this while my son’s team was halfway across the state at their first (ha ha, pun not intended) event of the season. It was really useful in terms of following the team through the qualification rounds, especially once I figured out some of the features available (but hidden) on the Event page.
However, they’ve moved on to the Elimination round and the app hasn’t updated anything! Isn’t showing alliances or schedule or anything else. I am able to find it at the blue alliance web site, so clearly the information is available.
Also, there are a few places where the interface is not intuitive and/or takes extra steps to achieve my goal. For example, I tap on a favorite team and it shows me the event. Then i tap on the event title, hoping it will show me the team’s results for that event - but no, it takes me to a numerical listing of all teams in the event and i have to tap again. Stuff like that is frustrating.
Could go more in depth.
This is a great app. Keeps me on track during matches. The only concerns I have is that it does not update quickly after qualifying matches, and I wish it would go more in depth. It would be nice to know the categories points are scored in, like autonomous, scaling, etc like FIRST shows after every match.
Works great but could use a little more...
One feature that I'd like to see is the option to turn on a team notification for changes in current rank. Specific match points per category would be nice as well.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
