Was totally worth the price
Love this app. I'm not a purchaser of many apps, certainly none that cost as much as this one does; however, this app was totally worth the price! The cost rounds out to 71cents(US) / day.
No commercials. No ads.
One can watch the race live within the app with full commentary *without* interruption. Recordings of the race appear later which are opened in a browser - again without ads or interruption. My favorite is the race/map/elevation view - it provides a real sense for the terrain the riders are dealing with while they ride. You can view rider standings while still keeping up with the action, too. There are so many features I'm not going to mention them all.
A truly marvelous application!
I downloaded this app to be able to watch the Tour while we were traveling. I like the fact that it is way more detailed (i.e. gives the entire ride and let's me watch what I want to. We would usually skip forward to the end since we didn't have time to watch the entire show. Also rather than paying my cable company an extra charge to get Versus coverage that was only the highlights it lets me watch everything.
You need to be aware that you can only see episodes 1 day delayed, but that is what was promised so I'm not going to ding them for that. It does what it promises and being able to see the entire route was awesome. I felt like I was traveling to france with a bird's eye view of the tour.
Not worth it
Video so unreliable. Features are missing or unreliable.
Want to find a rider by bib#? Not possible! Are you kidding me?
The route and elevation maps are almost useless ...they don't change between portrait and landscape, they start out small and you have to zoom them. The rider tracking is very unreliable.
Would love to have pointers to more of the rules and scoring, and maybe some of the area history the Paul and Phil are talking about.
Video is somewhat unreliable. Had 5 bars of LTE, sitting still, and the video wouldn't play or buffer. Totally missed the end of a sprint stage and had to watch it (a day later!) on replay.
On the positive side, AirPlay is working nicely for me (from my iPad to my Apple TV) when video is working on WiFi.
This app could be so much more. Very disappointing (second year in a row). Probably wont purchase it next year.
