AFL, Telstra and Apple let users down with bug ridden iPad app

In an effort to make AFL content available to iOS users the league has teamed up with Telstra and hurriedly released updated AFL iPhone and iPad apps for the 2012 season. The iPad version is one of the most bug ridden apps I’ve ever used. The issues are mainly centered around video playback errors and broken design display.

I’m surprised Apple approved such a shabby release. It’s a blessing and a curse that Apple approves all of the App Store apps but one of the benefits is that there is an expected level of quality that comes with an Apple App. The recent AFL iPad release highlights how the league has prioritised speed to market over quality and decent user experience.
