iPhone App Update 1.0.1
First update to the iPhone app now live.
We launched the iPhone app 2 weeks ago and in the next few hours we will smash through 30,000 downloads!
Fingers crossed, a full weekend of sports action will see this rise to 40,000 this time next week.
The Pitchero app has also made the news, appearing in The Sun and the Guardian's recommended app list.
Thanks to everyone who has sent feedback, this is always read and taken on board.
Following the launch, we became aware of a few bugs affecting users with older iPhones. The bug caused the app to crash when the user selected the 'More' section.
The latest update will fix this bug and we recommend all users update the app.
To download the update go to iTunes or the App Store within your phone and click Updates. This should only take a few seconds.
NOTE: If a member downloads the app for the first time, they will automatically download the most recent version.
As expected within minutes of launching the iPhone app we were inundated with requests for an Android App. We hope to have this live later in the year but no date has been fixed.
The iPhone app was developed first because this is the most used mobile device across Pitchero - by a long way, we promise!
Features for Webmaster's and Team Admins
We are already working on these updates and hope to push them live soon.
