What's New in Version 8.1
-Enhanced Minute by Minute Navigation
-General Bug Fixes
Good App Good Streaming. Just doesn't work on sight
PGA has wi-if available at the course and there are signs everywhere encouraging you download their app. There is not enough bandwidth available on site to support the app. It took over an hour to download the app and once downloaded the streaming didn't work. Once I got home all was well. I downloaded the app on my iPad in 10 seconds and the streaming works fine. Need to test bandwidth before the event if you want people to use it on site.
Not a "major" app
Comparing this app to those of the other three majors, this fall short. It works, but there are several annoying design issues. For example video can't be played while you switch to another app - returning to the video forces you to watch the same 15 min. commercial again, unlike The Open app. No adjustment for play in the 3rd round on Sunday due to rain.
The PGA seems defensive about their championship being a major, and this reinforces this perception.
Had issue finding course flyover and pictures and sent an email and was surprised to get an immediate response with directions on how to find. Great support!
