I really like this app for its timely updates and alerts, but certain issues persist.
While I get great timely alerts on my screen, whenever I swipe them in order to go straight into the app to get the rest of the information, the as soon as the app opens, a prompt appears saying, "Failed to download data. Please check your internet connection and try again." However, no amount of internet checking will make any difference because the problem is within the app itself.
Also, whenever using the app, there is quite a lag before you can actually open and read the update for whichever player you are interested in, regardless of whether you select the "News," "Top News" or "My News" tab. It takes quite some time for the alerts to populate, which is pretty annoying. However, once it is available, the information is terrific and timely.
One more thing I notice is that on the iPad, even though I have selected "MLB" as my favorite sport, this isn't at all helpful for doing searches, because the system always defaults to NFL regardless. So I have to manually change the tab to "MLB" for every player search I do - which is extremely annoying when I have a whole list of players I want to look up. So "favorite sport" is not helpful there.
Solution for Unable to Follow Players
I've fallen in love with the App since the first day I used it. But the last update just crushed my world for that all the players I followed has gone after the update. Every time I re-followed a player it still disappeared when I restarted the App. I regretted updating it cause I didn't benefit from the new update for a bit!
The mess continued for several days until I deleted the old app and reinstalled it. Fortunately, everything works fine now. I can follow my players now even when I restarted the app. Still have to thanks Rotoworld for making this great app but please make no fuss about the updating if it doesn't get better!!
Doesnt even support portrait view
The fact that this app forced me to only view it in landscape mode made it immediately expendable on my ipad. I have the iphone app still but I am seriously considering deleting that as well, as this app has went down hill big time. It used to be the best all-in-one source of news but there are so many other avenues that pack more features now. I guess they were banking on the rotoworld reputation carrying them along while other companies innovated and improved on better products. Heres to hoping rotoworld wakes up....
