Review from Lorna Folini
Videos did not play in articles and new articles unavailable During the month of April, videos embedded in recap articles would not play. Also, this app does not update information timely. That is to say new news titles roll in, but when clicking "Read" I'm not directed to the article; directed instead to old articles.
A Joke This app never updates properly, ignores any settings you may have for content and displays anything it feels like at the time. Of course that is only on the rare occasions that it actually loads anything at all. It is sad that I would have to recommend an after market app instead of the official NHL product but there it is.
Still not listening...Not liking the new update, recap highlights are instant spoilers So slow to load pages! Xbox one app with spoilers off, does it right. This app needs to copy this. Recap, stats & videos buttons all go to same page, calendar month on scoreboard is wrong, as when click it previous month name pops up!! Condensed highlights are in but you'll see the score first! Chromecast only let's you watch a live game, needs from start of game option plus DVR controls. No android tv or Chromebook support.In summary, poorly tested app.
Looks nice, too many bad things though The redesign is aesthetically pleasing. I hate using the app though. The stats pages are just awful. They require way too many clicks to get to what you want. Old games still need to be archived. Pages are SO slow to load, even if I've visited them recently. Poor stability. Incredibly difficult to search for any content (a bit like the website really...).
Too many notifications. At one time, it used to be just breaking news (trades, contract signings, etc.) but now there's a notification for insignificant happenings, and a lot of them at that. This used to be my go-to app for NHL news but after getting several daily notifications for things that really aren't that important, I turned them off. Please give us the ability to get the breaking news and turn the other notifications off at our own discretion.
Would be nice if it worked... Pages don't load, you need to go to ten different pages to find the story you're looking for and then, the story says nothing. I can't even get a simple, comprehensive list of trades to and from teams. This is the NHL app, isnt it? Terrible.
Official Pittsburgh Penguins Mobile app. Stats, scores, video clips, twitter.
