End of the line

There’s a Facebook post and an email blast from Buzztime that, in essence, says either don’t upgrade to iOS 11 or use the tablets at restaurants. Essentially, don’t expect the update to 64 bit in order to work with iOS 11. The app hadn’t been updated in ages, which means many things. Either the development was outsourced, and it’s not viable for one reason or another to return to the outsourced party, or it was done in house by a long departed person or team. Either way, judging by the lack of updates, it’s either not a priority for Buzztime, or there aren’t any funds to update or develop a new one. Judging by the meager participation at the places I play, I’d say its funds. Used to be a third of the people in the joint we’re playing. Now I’m typically the only one. Or was. No iOS app means my eyes won’t be glued to that Buzztime screen waiting for the next round to start, while I soak in all that advertising. It’s a shame. I remember when the app rolled out, it was literally the best thing since sliced bread. Now it’s dead. Buzztime will likely follow. Just a matter of time.

Will Not Support iOS 11 (No 64-Bit Support)

Apple is pushing a notification with the current version of this application advising all users that it will not work with future versions of iOS because the application has never been updated to support 64 bit devices. Although I typically use the tablet when I am inside the restaurant, there are rare occasions where they do not have enough tablets available to accommodate all of the patrons inside the restaurant making this application useful in these situations. The application works today, but the rating I give is two-stars due to the upcoming end of life support.


No update in 3 years?? Going to get kicked

I love using this app when I'm at the bar and don't want to use a buzztime device, but c'mon. This app never gets updates and is STILL using the aspect ratio of the iPhone 4s. Apple said they were going to start kicking un-updated apps off the App Store, this may be one of the first to go. YOU ONLY HAD ONE JOB. Major fail to us buzztime fans. I say that, because with the extra Realistate you could actually show the question on the phone also, for the times when the tv is hard to see. Update this app please.
