New redesign a step backwards
Update 2: they finally fixed the major issues
Update: the new update that claims to have listened to the users didn't change anything. All the same problems listed below are still present:
Old: Loved the old version but the redesign took away a lot of the best features that made it useful...It doesn't hold your place on the scroll list if you read a players news blurb (it takes you back to the top of the list every time now and you have to refind your spot), you can't easily distinguish on the scroll page if it's a player you follow or not (used to have an indicator if it was someone you wanted to monitor) and the overall main page just seems cluttered and harder to sort thru info. Not impressed. Not sure why someone felt the need to "update" something that worked great already. If it's not broke, don't fix it. But now it IS broken...so please. FIX IT!
Thank you for updating that poorly thought out v2.0. I'm going to be generous and pin the blame on NBC forcing you to release something before it was ready because ad dollars rather than you employing some terrible ux leads or developers.
But can you please bring back the ability to click-through to the source material on a spoke page or something? And a fantastic addition not seen in either version would be including your wonderful staff-written features.
Those two (and maybe a more sophisticated way to manage your favorites (though it's better than your desktop version)) are really the only two significant ways I can imagine improving upon v2.1, so kudos for acting quickly on your feedback.
Really appreciate the team at Rotoworld responding to the all the requests and reviews asking for fixes and changes. The app is definitely getting better, even though I may still miss the simple version a little bit.
One thing that has not been fixed is the app taking up the whole screen, and not being able to see the top bar with the time/battery/service etc. Seems like a simple fix, but has somehow been left out of the updates.
