Ratings and Reviews
Newest version a letdown from previous
I’ve been using this app since I really got into baseball in 2013. I was a big fan of the month to month cost of $3 to watch highlights moments after they happen, because I was constantly busy at school and a broke college student. Since then, they make you pay the full $20 for the whole year. First off, the scores on the home page load painfully slow. It takes about 15 seconds to load, and the information stating the pitcher vs batter information is usually wrong. Second, back then, elite pitching performances used to have up to 2 minute videos showing a whole outing, but now all we get is a dumbed down version that is about 45 seconds long. I was also a fan of the condensed game because it would show a play by play of every out in the game within 15 minutes. Along with the previous videos I mentioned, the condensed game is now dumbed down to about 7 minutes. Third, the game audio is the main feature I use to listen to the games because I’m usually not able to watch, but the service constantly drops and I find myself having to close the app and restart. It’s so frustrating. As a fan, I can understand the whole “pace of play” stuff coming into effect, but real fans want to watch full highlights. Fix this garbage app. Stop worrying about notifications and work on the interface. Stop dumbing down the highlights making them shorter. You will lose paid subscribers because at this point it doesn’t even seem worth the money.
Offline mode and video
Whenever I have the app open and turn off my phone screen for around 5 or more minutes and then turn my phone screen back on while still in the app it will tell me that I am in offline mode and cannot check the box scores but it will still let me do everything else like check player stats and watch videos of the very game I’m trying to check the box score of but when I tap on the box score it tells me I’m in offline mode and need to connect to the internet and I cannot find anything in
neither my phones nor the apps options to fix this and the only way I get it to work again is by closing the app and reopening it or try to do other internet requiring things in the app like looking at player stats and sometimes it will no longer be in offline mode. The other issue is when I turn my phone sideways the video won’t enlarge to fill my screen and this is a recent issue, the offline mode has been a thing since the 2018 spring training began. Neither of these were issues in the 2017 season. Aside from that this has been my favorite baseball app for the past 6 years and hope that this review will help in addressing and fixing theses issues that others may be experiencing
Good app, but In App Purchase Warning
First off, I do really like this app. I enjoy being able to read news and see scores about my favorite team. I decided to purchase the $20 in app purchase because I wanted to be able to watch full games. I do not have access to cable or satelite tv. When my team had its first spring training game a couple days ago, I tried to play the game and it says MLBtv subscription required. Now, I don’t know if it was because it’s spring training or if it’s because I misunderstood the apps purchase, but I would like to know exactly what it is I am paying $20 a year for if I cannot watch live games. I want to add that I still enjoy the app and that I am not going to delete the app and I still find this a good resource, but I think that MLB should make a disclaimer for others who have the same impression...another idea is to add this to the $20 or make a separate in app purchase for live games. A student discount would also be a good idea.
I hope this review helps others
