Meta: Recruiting iPad/iPhone app update

Submitted by Dizzo on March 5th, 2012 at 8:12 AM

Some of you might remember a few weeks back I had posted a link to an iPad app I had created to follow recruiting.  That one was the "Lite" version of the app and only had content for the 2012 football class.  The "Full" version just made it to the App Store on Friday for iPhone and iPad and has info for football and basketball classes from 2011-2013.  It also is setup so that you won't need app updates to get new recruits/years (sports/schools too if I choose to add more).  

Full disclosure - this version is $0.99, but I didn't think that was bad when you get all the content updates for future classes without needing to buy new versions.  If that makes this thread inappropriate, go ahead and delete it.  

You can find the app searching for "tsRecruiting" in the App Store, or the direct link if you're interested is -  http://t.co/djn7V9RR

I have gotten feedback that the background image on the phone makes reading the Bio a little tough and that scrolling the sports/years can be hard if you don't have good aim with your thumbs.  I'll be getting out an update in the next 2 weeks to address both of those issues.

Hard to get around on it and I really don't know what I am suppose to see. All I get is Michigan, football, 2011, then a list of recruits. I can't navigate anywhere else. Am I missing something?

You can scroll the years and sports.  It's not as intuitive as I thought which is what I'm working on for the next release.  It's just like the recruit list, just a single-line box instead of a multi-line box which makes it harder to see.  Basically, when you put your finger on the year, flick it up and you'll see it lets you pick 2011, 2012, or 2013.  Same for sports you can move between Basketball and Football.

 

Edit: If you couldn't tell either, you can pick from the list of recruits that come up and see a bio, rankings for the various sites, and at the bottom a list of links to other content on the web (highlight videos, interviews, Hello: posts here, etc).
