sports life all weekend long. Track your team's schedule, find game locations,
get directions, view pool standings, and follow brackets. Get up-to-the-minute
notifications as scores & updates are posted. No mor...
Here is what I like about the app. I think it’s organized well, it’s easy to see who you play, field locations, brackets, tournament notifications & the like. I don’t like the ads, that you have to spend a stupid amount of time finding out how to close them & them requesting 99 cents a month for what was previously ad free (I think?). As far as the operation of the app, I wish that there was a way to finalize a game. I post the score as it happens but then it shows as “live” until those running the tourney finalize the game. I think there should be a way to indicate when the score is final by those reporting it, even if it’s not official yet. At least people would know the game is over.
Great but room for improvement.
App is great, but has plenty of room for improvement. Text for date and time is light grey, SO tiny and hard to read and not able to zoom into it. Home/Away are not easily identified or marked so we may distinguish jersey colors, etc. Our league uses the first team as home team and many tournaments use the second. It’s not always clear. We always have to double check and often have to change anyway since both team come wearing same colors. Also, it would be nice to be able to sync to your calendar or subscribe somehow, so you have access to live updates when organizers change game times and places. Or if they cancel due to weather or venue issues. As well as to see when scores are posted. There is also not a clear way to know if the schedules are final. Many tournaments post schedules early and give coaches a timeframe to request changes or to fix errors, if they do make changes it’s not always known. Nobody likes ads - we don’t want them, but I get it. There is always a delay to bypass them. Even worse is a subscription type fee. I’d rather just pay once and be done.
This app is garbage.
Unfortunately I have to follow my kids tournament games on this joke of an app. I made the in app purchase to eliminate ads (and I have been charged for it) but they still continue along with a full page banner asking me to purchase the removal of ads! The ads themselves are not only continuous banners covering content, they also have full screen videos which cannot be dismissed. Just what I need when I am at a tournament with my kids and trying to find out where and when we need to be. There is no way to contact the app support team in app or otherwise. I have essentially been robbed. Functionality of several of the app features does not work at all even thought they are clearly intended to. Did I mention there is no way to get support? I think my grade school kids could produce a better app experience.
Paid Twice - Still Bombarded with Ads
I’ve paid for two different tournaments this weekend, $1.99 each. Now I keep getting popups offering an ad-free experience for $.99/month. When I decline that offer, I watch another ad. If I try to accept the offer, and throw away additional money, nothing happens. Clicking on the button to purchase doesn’t actually work. Then I close it and get hit with another ad. Beyond getting ripped off, it would be great to have some way to know which tournament messages came from, without having to try the inbox for each tournament. Perhaps a unified inbox with a designator for the source? There’s a ton of potential, but the execution falls woefully short of expectations.
Poor UI experience.
Once I select a possible tournament from the list in the search I cannot get rid of it. It’s now my default tournament even if it was the wrong one and the tournament we are supposed to attend has not been posted. Sometimes it takes a while for a tournament that we have entered to be posted and I don’t really want to be stuck viewing one I randomly looked at while searching. The only way to get rid of it currently would be to select another tournament from the list of tournaments we aren’t attending. That’s just dumb. The user should be able to remove a tournament and set the app back to default of having no tournaments selected.
Hate Hate Hate!!!!!!
I can't tell you how much I absolutely HATE this app, but I'm stuck at the mercy of the tournament adims who use this app for the basketball tournaments we play in. I've used this app for about 3 years and always curse #*%$ when I have to use it. I HATE the ads!!!! I don't want a month subscription!! I just want to purchase the app one time to get rid of the horrible adds. Another issues is you can't search for a tournament by name. All I can do is scroll through all the tournaments in the area. Really????? You can't search for an event by typing in the name?????? Isn't that a basic feature???? Again, this is a horrible app and I wouldn't use it unless I had to.
App sort of works, but has extortionate add interruptions
You are probably going to install this app because it is the only way to get the information you need for a tournament you already paid an entry fee for. So you are forced to use it. When using it. It will pop up random interruptions, forcing you to find the hidden close button to get back to what you are trying to find. So they will try and annoy and badger you into the $1 per month subscription fee. All in all, kind of the worst of the worst slimy and manipulative and dishonest business model. Enjoy it while you are trapped in the “mandatory hotel” the tournament organizers forced your team to stay at..
Loved it, then...
I love the concept of this app, and so far it’s been great 90% of the time. However, I ran into a glitch this week where weather dictated changes to times and field locations. Everyone else’s app seemed to update but mine. It still had original info. I tried shutting down my phone, closing and reopening the app, nothing worked. Finally, I deleted and reinstalled the app...that fixed it. Gotta take a star away for that.
Cannot zoom on screen
Type font is minuscule and unbolded for game times and cannot be enlarged with a zoom feature. Works fine in WiFi, but has failed to open correctly and work at the fields over cell data for three tourneys now. Doesn’t even show the page I had up in WiFi without updates. Shows no information at all. Nice to be able to see scores later and bracket but at large tourneys hasn’t got a good format to get a feel for large brackets.
Tournaments don’t always show up
I can see a tournament on my phone but my husband or friend can’t find it on theirs...we confirm we have the same filter options selected, no updates needed, power device off - still can’t find it! This happens about once a month, and it has happened to all of us, so it’s not a one time glitch. When I can find the tournament, it is a useful app to see all the schedules, brackets, standings, etc. Great to have it all in one place - but would really like it if it always worked!
App is nice, but searching for a tourney not in your Immediate area needs improvement
I like the app overall and really the rating is for the application search feature. I will be attending a tourney 60 miles away but I cannot pull it up on the app because the search will not see anything outside of 10 miles. The other feature I would like to see is a subscribe to your calendar button. This would allow you to sync the schedule to your phone so you don't miss a game.
Charge to remove ads?
It’s unbelievable that they are charging app users to remove ads. 1st, they charge the tourney organizers (which you are already paying because it’s your sports fee that is being used) just to use the app for their tournaments, then turn around and charge users to remove ads? If anything the tournament organizer should get that money as a way to recoup the fee they paid tourney machine! It’s outright double charging and tournament organizers should be upset! Users - do no pay to remove ads, they are already paid by very well by your organization!!!
A terrible app for youth sports teams
One critical element for youth sports is the schedule. Even though it put the schedule on the app, YOU CANNOT EXPORT THEM to your main calendar in the smart phone! The developers have no ideas that for most parents, you have to have a centralized calendar to keep track of all the kids activities. It will be a NIGHTMARE that you have to jump among different apps to get the kids schedules and then enter MANUALLY to your main calendar! If I am the head of the software company, I’ll regroup the product management team to obtain a better user experience.
Invaluable during long hot days at lax tournies. We know who and where we’re playing, keep up to date on how the competition is faring, and keep tabs on how friends in different age groups are doing. Great stuff. I can envision a future version where you can upload a video highlight from the games.
I used to use this app for my fall basketball season, and it was great, and then i deleted it after that. for my spring basketball season I redownloaded it, but it’s only letting me view high school boys teams when I need another division that won’t show up for some reason. it worked fine last season but this time around I am having a lot of difficulties finding my own team. it’s very frustrating that i can only view one division.

The app is not readable. The words look scrunched. Contacted late last summer and was told it was hopefully to be fixed soon. Still the same many months later

My tourney machine app is posting the schedule with team name and field numbers on same line. One on top of the other. I deleted and reloaded app but same issue.
