Fabulous for any tennis fan!
This app is awesome! Up-to-date tracking of the scores, schedule of play, and draws. I just found the live videos of matches when they aren't showing them on the tele. ESPN has pretty good coverage during the week, but CBS on the weekend was awful! They didn't show any of the night matches and there were some matches by top ranked players, eg. Djokovic, Li Na, Radwanska. I was happy to find Tim Smyczek's (he was last American left in the draw) match against Granollers. And I've never been to Flushing Meadows, but it was fun to see the aerial view of the grounds and where the courts are. Brilliant app.
Tennis scores with plenty of glitches
The app fulfills one of its basic purposes relatively well - one can see scores, schedules and draws of USOpen tennis championship. However, even these relatively simple tasks manage to frustrate with small glitches: phone can be unresponsive for tens of seconds, app crashes sometimes, live scores are not updated for minutes (delayed scores are not that live).
It is more advanced tasks where app fails: live radio steaming is interrupted constantly and breaks up for good after several minutes. Live video feed can work perfectly for hours, but can freeze for minutes.
Game of tennis can be exciting and surprising at the Open, but USOpen App always stays true to its buggy and faulty nature.
Freezes constantly, slowest running app in my phone. No problems with any other app yet this one just becomes unresponsive for long periods of time.
Imagine scrolling and you keep getting stuck, then all of a sudden it catches up to all the movements you've made and you have no idea where you are anymore.
Video would have been great if it wasn't off air 95% of the time.
I'm a tennis nut and this years us open app was not a pleasant experience..
Trendcast was a fun addition, but since everything just took so long to load every time i used it, it just became frustrating rather than informative..
I would think that the us open would have a better running, more reliable app for the fans.
