What's New in Version 2.5
Just a few problems, but very good app
Some of the Oscars history is off. For example, for when I click on There Will Be Blood, it didn't say that Daniel Day Lewis won best actor for it even though he did, however, when I click on Daniel Day Lewis's profile it does say that he won that year. Just a few other things in history besides that, make sure to check all of it thoroughly. Plus there were just some issues with people seeing their Oscar pools but not so bad as to ruin the entire Oscar pool. And as a cool feature; I think it he awesome to click on minor category winners and see what they have won. For example, when I try to click on John Williams to see what he's won, it won't let me. I like to see even the most minor categories people, and what they've won. But this is a very good app and it can only go up from here.
This app malfunctioned consistently every time I tried to use it. From not letting me select members for my Oscar pool from my contacts to completely quitting in the middle of using it on Oscar night, it was clearly really poorly designed. And it's not like it's a new app, it's a year old, so they really should have it running smoothly by now. A bad investment. You'd be better off designing your own.
kinda weird UI, but better than official app
The interaction for swiping through nominations is unlike any other iOS app I've encountered, and isn't very intuitive.
Also, it's annoying that the actual nominee isn't listed. Instead, it's just the movie. I don't think that's fair to the nominees.
