Awful app. Crashes the whole time.
It is great... When it's working. Overall it isn't too great. This is because it crashes most times I open it. If the developers at F1 Digital Media Limited could solve the crashing issue, I would highly recommended it. The app's features are already amazing, it just needs refinement. Thanks for reading.
This is an interesting app, for those interested in F1. It is a good rework since Liberty Media took over. However, I am frequently interrupted, while reading a story in the app, by it suddenly reloading the story in my default browser. This uses more of my limited download allowance. Another long-standing issue is the use of TCP for transmission of commentary. Regularly hearing a phrase repeated 3 or 4 times is annoying. This has been an issue for quite a while. I have also found, since upgrading to an Android 7 phone, that it reports No Network Access. I have to Force Stop to get network access back.
Sound quality for both the international & local feed isounds like a badly tuned battery powered AM radío from the 1970s. If your track side and want audio commentary it's impossible to hear. The app also uses an excessive amount on CPU, causing my phone it become almost too hot to hold.
Warning to all potential new download users. This app has many issues as per many comments below. The biggest annoyance for me was trying to read the latest articles only to have the same article reload everytime and often then freeze the page forcing my phone (S7) to re boot. The phone would also get quite hot. I should have unistalled the app as no other app i had caused any issues. I stopped reading the articles on this app and my phone was great. Last week (silly me i should not have done this) the same thing happened again whilst looking at an article, but this time the 14 month S7 froze, tried to re boot several times but failed and died. Samsung gave me a new S7. Yes the phone may have had some glitch already from manufacture but it was only ever having an issue while on the Official F1 app and if i had not gone back on the app i beleive my old S7 would still be working now. Dare say i have not installed this app on this new S7. F1 should have an app that NASA would be proud to have considering its budget.
If you want a comprehensive list of races and results, the free version does the job. News items come through quickly, but not instantaneously. The app will put all the grand prix dates into your calendar, but it puts in every practice session and quali. If you then delete the ones you don't want, the app replaces them almost immediately. Once they're there I can't find a way of removing them.
