Since I took over the site last year, the only feedback I've ever heard about the Seahawk Addicts app has been in emails from people who have nothing but complaints of one sort or another with the program. So, the other day I mentioned in a comment thread that I was thinking about removing the links to download the app from the site. I mean, I've never used it, since I don't own any tablets or smart phones, and all I'd ever heard was negative feedback, so surely that was the correct move, right?
After that, I started receiving emails from people just to tell me I'd be making a big mistake by removing those links. They love the app, they said, and moreover they insisted that there were a lot of readers out there who access the site exclusively through that program and told me that I would be making a huge mistake if I got rid of it.
Naturally, this made me curious to find out how many of you out there like the app and use it on a regular basis. I decided to delay this post until Bloguin rolled out the new site templates, but now that that's done I figured it was high time I asked you guys for some feedback. How well does the app work for you? Does everything (text, links, images, etc.) display properly? Is there anything that could use some tweaking? Are the Livefyre comments still not accessible via the app?
I use it all the time! Its really handy being able to read on the go. The table usually don't show up right and I've had some problems with images occasionally. Minor annoyances honestly. The most notably absent feature is not being able to read/write comments on the threads.
Even on my ipad/iphone I use the web based version. Granted I don't get alerts when you post but just being able to read/post comments is well worth it. Maybe a seahawk fan is an development guy?
that being said the App sucks. In a time when most apps are developing and growing the Addicts app feels like its in beta.
I have been using Seahawks Addicts for a year now exclusively with my iphone app. I read and look forward to everyone of your post but have never had access to read or make comments. Since seeing your recent blog I now have found this site with my laptop and plan to get even more involved. Thanks, Hank.
I ahve the app on my droid razor and enjy reading the articles. No much else to say as DustinRCurtis pretty much sums up the same problems that the android app has. Links work most of the time, can't comment or read the comments.
I like being able to read your articles on the go.
I agree with him that if it will be expensive don't bother but it would be nice to comment on the go as well.
Please don't kill the app.
Thanks for the time you put into this, it gives me a nice perspecive to discuss with my friends.
I follow the app. I have it on my iphone and on my ipad. The ipad vs is a bit different and a lot cleaner then the iphone version. But both do the job as I am able to read the articles no problem. And they also alert me as well with new post. Usually within an hour of them being posted.
You can not comment currently using the apps. You cant even read the comments. All you get is what is written in the articles. Pictures work fine. I believe one of the few times videos have been on here, they have tried to load but have issues.
I love the app as I do not frequent this site, but I like to receive the information. And getting comments to work would be great as well as we could participate in the R-Rated threads easier. Which would be fun to talk shit and get also vent if needed. But dont go spending any crazy amount of money just for comments to work. Im fine just reading the articles for now if that all it is.
At least dont get rid of it.
