I don't believe it. Or, wow, winning really does take care of everything.
I've been using the yearly Masters apps since day one and they've all been, without hyperbole, really messy poo. I mean, we're talkin' a whole pack of baby wipes here since not even the most technically advanced interstitially bonded 4-ply would cut it otherwise.
But this one? This one is a freaking bidet. It's awesome and refreshing—totally, utterly clean with tingly effervescence to spare, and a plumber keen enough to pipe in some warm water to boot.
I'm flush with excitement.
This might be the least crappy sports app ever made. With a great layout, a UI that works smoothly and with purpose, and even a bit of soul despite Augusta's pitchfork-esque reputation (rawr!), this app serves as the new benchmark. I hope the other normally %#!@-slinging sports app devs take note (or here, I'll put it bluntly: your app is absolute garbage, trust me).
Note: fifth star reserved for how well the live broadcasts hold up over the course of the tourney.
Get it? Course?
They got it right
Usually the single event apps are limited and not very worthwhile. This is a GREAT app that gives you many ways to enjoy the Masters. The streaming was seamless (except for a few hiccups), the scoreboard was beautiful and the scorecards allowed you to revisit the videos from many individual holes. The video choices were often better than watching the broadcast as there was more continuity to what you were watching. Too bad they couldn't have the leaders as a highlighted group. Nice work, somebody.
I'm not a golfer and this app is great because, among many other stellar attributes, you can watch almost anything you want and not watch the rest - I.e. watch any leading player's past performance at selected holes in previous rounds (without the jabbering of announcers). Also great is the extended coverage at key holes along the course. Great app, but would expect nothing less from Augusta National (no I'm not a member!!)
