Only portrait aspect available, not landscape, so small pictures and it crashes at every opportunity.
If anyone wanted to intentionally drive fans away they couldn't do better than this app. Glitchy, unintuitive and way overpriced. Then last night it started ringing my phone every hour in the middle of the night to tell me to get up and watch the race (for $$$ of course). Clicked on the messages when I got up and the app crashed every time. Utter crap.
Really disappointed with this. The results take a long time to be updated, which means any sports news app is just as informative. I can't believe that an event as big as the America's cup has an app this bad.
$8 to watch a single race. this is the fastest way to loose interest in the races.
Keep retrieving location, since they cut website broadcast its the only way i can join the love match. What a shame.
Dont pay for the coverage as if there is tv rights sold to a network in your country you wont get access to it anyways. On top of that the app itself crashes constantly. Considering oracle is supposed it be involved its a bit of a joke!
I wish it was possible to stream through a Web browser. Please fix/remove constant GPS requirement. Perhaps the location could be inferred from the method of payment.
GPS mandatory...are you kidding?
Still too expensive, also completely spoil the result with notification that you can't turn off. Payed for a race that I know the result before I get to watch.
What you expect me to pay $7+ to watch this on a cellphone! Are you "bleeping" out of your mind. Last time it was only two race's. Get over yourselves, your not that cool. App is full of the same old stale content as last one. Not impressed, I think I'll just go sailing that day instead.
Naturally, this app would be much better if it was able to live stream the races but since it is the only AC app, of course I love it!
Paying 7.99 every time is going to get old. No live animated GPS feed or animated replay with boat data available that I can see - major deficiency. Video hangs about two tries in four. Did not work at all during event.
this will not run. it requires GPS to be enabled and that is not something I give entertainment apps.
To many restrictions with these boats. Time limits, wind limits, the race course is way to short thats why i say bring back the mono hulls.
You can watch most sports on TV for free, but America's Cup you have to pay $7.99 to watch a race and on a phone to boot. Absolutely ridiculous. Who's making all the money of this deal.
The operation works well, but the app layout is not intuitive. It's disorganized and confusing to operate. Looking forward to the LiveLine simulator tho.
I can't believe that such a multi-million dollar operation such as the AC, headed by one of the biggest IT firm in the world is able to produce such a god awful app!!! Streaming is on and off... Stuttering all the time (despite the low number of viewers)... And all this for $10?! Are you kidding me? If I could be asked the extra trouble I would ask my money back!!!
Simply not going to pay to watch the races, charging for them killed the very last vestiges of interest I had left.
Absolute cr4p... Typical of the ACEA... $7.99 and no racing... lol can't even see the leader board. .. Oh well one day they'll get it right. ..
Put it back on youtube. Sell some advertising and make it free...lazy butts!
A terrible selection of fake fluff news and the video feed chews up HUGE chunks of data. A disgrace to the sport
Bad experience overall. Continually freezing during video. Sits on authorization screen (checking location) forever.
no.good, all ways freezing, waste of time
Paid for app then found they want more $ to be able to watch the Bermuda replays.
$8 for what?
This is terrible for the sport.... shame on you.
Access is disgusting not user friendly
This is an updated review after Portsmouth and Gothenburg several days before Hamilton. This app works well for me on LG G3 and Dragontouch 10"GPS tablet. Paid app good for up to 3 devices at 1 time. Live racing feed excellent, technical and on boat feeds excellent. HDMI out to 85" big screen sound and image, excellent. The fact that I am paying $8 an event for what has traditionally been free to air or stream, bogus and not excellent. NBC buying the rights and not showing the race, disgraceful.
I paid for the live coverage of both Portsmouth and Gothenburg, the app wouldn't work for either. A complete waste of money and time. Please, please put the racing back on YouTube where it actually works instead of trying to reinvent the wheel. Until then there is plenty of other decent racing to watch on platforms that actually work.
This is so much worse than last time. Who wants to peer at a tiny screen instead of a full size computer? Just sell ads and put it on YouTube for free.
I totaly hated it, no replay with selected camera!
How about not alerting me to the f'in result before I see the race? Don't put the replay video in amongst other clips that gives away the result? Just go back to YouTube and rely on sponsors and advertising for your revenue. This app is terrible, freezing up all the time. AC34 coverage online was brilliant but you're getting too greedy. The number of app downloads should tell you that you are limiting the audience, then the majority of people can't access the racing even once they've paid for it.
Get you act together, we've paid good money for this s**te...
I tried to use this app to listen to the commentary during the races in Göteborg. I had a high speed 4g connection. But the app kept crashing, or hung when loading the page. Or eventually when the steaming did work it was several minutes behind. When I was at home I tried to view the videos. I then had a choice of two behaviours. Either the application crashed or I spent several minutes waiting for a video to load, which never did. I paid, 80kr for this piece of c***!!!!!!
Cant go into fullscreen for live coverage. Expensive low quality. What was wrong with the old service rather watch a heaps of adds than use this thing ever again
No... I am more interested in seeing the CUP on the YouTube Channel like before. The AC folks are taking a real chance with this APP concept, and they are going to lose.
I want to be able to watch the racing on a decent sized screen. not a phone or tablet. why no youtube channel or red bull player etc? how many viewers are you getting. hardly any I would guess when you have to pay to watch sport on a phone screen.
Not at all user friendly all seems to be clunky not a patch on the old one a total waste of money will not buy a race again
