Had the previous version of this app and was forced to update to this one. It does not accept my old login details. I completed the "I forgot my password" section. It is supposed to send me an email but it doesn't. No facility to set up a new account. I am therefore unable to use the app. The old app has been disabled. I have therefore lost all functionality. Brilliant! Well done EFL - you are biting the hand that feeds you and, judging by other reviews, upsetting a lot of football fans.
Shite...Cannot log in, wont send email reminder, cannot create account. No instructions This is the dumbest app ever. Must upgrade from oufc app wich was perfect for me.. totally useless garbage.. will try again 21-22 season, they may have hired programmers by then. Pointless 0 stars
The app is okay, a massive bonus of having full match replays, but I think it's missing some functionality, could we have a cast function, not all people have the eyesight to watch on their phones/tablets and need to watch it on a TV or bigger monitor.
Had to reload it twice to get it to work properly. Can't open video's from photo's, have to go to search to open them. Also we've lost the full match video's, only hightlights now. Just login again and it's still telling me to download the new app. But when u press, you have to press open, to get on the site.
I simply don't understand this. Like everyone else, I can't log in and am not receiving the promised email to enable a password reset. It seems I simply can't access my club's information (Portsmouth). Was the app tested I wonder? Was someone paid for it I wonder! Also like everyone else, I would have preferred to award no stars; one star for an app that can't be accessed is clearly one too many.
Waste of money, old app wasn't great but this is terrible. I understand the demand has increased due to fans not allowed into stadiums, but they should have the infrastructure in place by now to deal with increased demand. £10 per game when you only get to see stuttering and buffering is awful
Reinstalled it 3 times, I have good WiFi but still won't play videos anymore, just a white circle, is this since latest update???? Rubbish!
I deleted and reinstalled app but it doesnt have a register option. It just asks me to login which obviously I cant do 😑
Absolute rubbish. Forced to download from my club app, request forgotten login as nothing works and no emails ever received in response!! There isn't even a separate option to create a new account. Very dire representation of the EFL
Half time in the away game to Gillingham - and I've lost the video. tried every-which-way to get it back, including re-start, but failed. So audio only now. too complex for its own good.
The big game... On a tiny little phone. Why oh why can't I cast? Paying so much for a league one game is painful in the first place, but then to not be able to watch on my TV? Pretty pathetic. Sort it out please - not buying any more games until you do.
Very poor "live match" functionality. As mentioned by others, it is ridiculous (& unfair) that it's not possible to "cast" the 'sound & video' of a live match to TV. At £10 it's surely ridiculous that you can only view on the (much smaller) screen of a phone, tablet or laptop. I really would like to support my club by paying to watch BUT I feel that fans are being exploited by charging £10 when it's not possible to enjoy on a full TV screen. I am not prepared to pay on those terms.
Anyone having issues logging in. Go to your clubs ifollow on a webpage and log in, you can reset your password from there. Once you've worked your login details out, then download the new app and log in. If you go straight to the app there is no option to register, you should of already done this via your clubs website.
Had to update ...it is useless now ... can not get commentary for my club any more? Cant log in pulling my hair out .I am a Carlisle utd fan living in Belfast and up until this change/update I can not listen any more ... please get the simple layout back ... this updated version is terrible
Shocking service. Keep charging me for matches im not even watching and I cant delete my bank details and its impossible to contact them. Video hardly ever works so I stopped watching. Do not buy!!!!!!
Buggy. Terrible service. Pay for a game it doesn't appear. They tell you to uninstall then reinstall. Disgraceful
DONT BOTHER! Paid £10 twice now and neither time has it worked but happily taken my money. The Live Now red link appears when it chooses to and even when you click on it it says No Content Available. I've emailed to request a refund and all they've sent me is a link to their help page!! £20 down now and feeling ripped off!
When video coverage with club commentators, the sound is fractionally out with the picture. Very frustrating. Also when the commentators are summing up after a game, or doing their pre match preamble ramble, they are interrupted mid flow by adverts, so all sense of what they are discussing is lost. They profess (and I believe them) that they have no idea when these interruptions are going to occur.
I agree. Its rubbish and serves no purpose. My original App was brilliant. The new EFL App wont accept a password from me and so I requested new password instructions. I have not received an E Mail with "new password" instructions. What are EFL doing about it. Its of no use presently.
OK unless Sky or BT get there first. Problem is they snap up the BIG games just before they take place so Ifollow doesn't show them. Ie. You only get the minor games.
Utterly dreadful. Appealing user experience, website is a joke. Have paid 10 quid to watch game and I have no idea how to access the service after 30 minutes of trying to work it out.
Are the developers/efl asleep, don't they read the reviews it's a shambles. The old version didn't need upgrading, now it forces you to app store, yes it installs, open app yes, but repeats every time you open the app. If you uninstall , I did on my tablet I as of yet managed to find the app so no app to use! What's going on efl??????
I've not had any issues with this app at all! Downloaded and logged in straight away with absolutely no issues whatsoever and it works spot on every time I use it.
Very disappointing upgrade from the old ifollow. No live match stats or what the score is. If you have to mute the match or leave the app, you have no idea what's going on when you get back, none at all. This app is ****
Very poor 😕 sorry but the developers need to get their act together and sort out all the bugs & crashes this app isn't fit for purpose atm, it's constantly asking for an update that simply doesn't exist.
Sends me to update every time I select the app, only ever listen to live radio wouldent pay a £10 to watch live after the reviews I've seen.
Android phone won't allow switch to Home commentary when tuning in to watch away games. Tried clearing browser Reinstalling IFOLLOW & it just resets to Away commentary. This in Covid times doesn't exist. Makes the service poor as no FAQs cover this less clear browser cache!!
It's all well and good sending us a code to get the matches, but there's not much in the way of instruction for us supporters who have limited experience in using the code
I paid £10 but could not watch my team very disappointing insult is they have not responded to my complaint i have lost ten pounds no money back ??
There's a major bug using this on my Neocore Android tablet in that this app displays upside down compared to all the other apps that I have installed on it. Other than that the functionality is good.
It projects to my Ssmsung TV via smart view. I have no problem with the app. I've watched many game now on my TV using it.
Chromecast support please! It's 2020 and you're a video streaming app. 🤷🏻♂️ Will gladly up my rating with just that added. Hope it's in the backlog.
What the hell is this? I have followed my team for years abroad. No hassle. You charge me direct debit. Now you want credit card, won't let me reset password and, by most reviews, don't seem to be providing a service by club. If you don't sort this out by start of season, I'm cancelling the whole damn thing. You've ruined and excellent service.
I don't know if EFL Digital are competing with EA for the title of "Worst Company Ever", but they're damn close. The previous app experience with separate apps for each team was decent. Not amazing, still flawed but decent. This new app is about 5000 steps backwards. To buy a match pass, I had to log into my team's (Portsmouth) site to be given any sort of purchase option or link to streaming. A link to the video appeared 2 minutes before KO. ONLY 30 SECONDS IN, I'M BEING SHOWN SUNDERLAND?!?
There's a major bug using this on my Neocore Android tablet in that this app displays upside down compared to all the other apps that I have installed on it. I've now used this app for a few months and, sorry to say, I'm not impressed. The app often cuts out when listening to commentary. It seems to forget me, so I have to log back in quite a lot. This app needs a thorough revamp because, currently, it's usability is poor - nowhere near as good as past incarnations before EFL iFollow took it on.
Rubbish I get a code as a season ticket holder ,it should not be extremely difficult to watch the game.
Total waste of time . still a total waste of time tell me my password is incorrect and will email with a link to set a new one up. Tried this god knows how many times they never send the email .
It tells me I need to update every time I go into it even though I'm on the most recent version. It's been doing this since the last update which was months ago.
Was working brilliantly until the latest update. Now each time I try to use the app it tells me there is a new version and even though I've already updated I can only open the app from the update screen. Also, 1st video for watching is highlights from a game from early last season. You broke the app guys.
Complete waste of money. Watched for 4 minutes, dropped out, would not restart. Unable to get a refund.
Worked fine but now asks me to update the app every time I open it even though there is no update available
1. Every time i launch the app i get a message that a new version is available and have to go to app store to update. 2. First attempt to watch live match went fine but next time, despite paying my tenner, only the audio option was available. Despite reporting immediately it took them over 24 hours to acknowledge receipt of my complaint and a further week later i have received no explanation... nor a refund!
Just watched Reading on my laptop. Very amateurish product No hour of prematch chat PIctures largely OK NO COMMENTARY [poorly syncronised action with local radio] Plenty of annoying fake crowd sound Plenty of annoying adverts with sound Wont let me connect to my TV by HTMI to watch at normal size Do you come from hospital radio?? Please supply sound and picture syncronised and uninterrupted Please minimise adverts Please dont show irrelevant silent pictures. Make it possible to use HDMI to enable tele size viiw.
When im watching the livestream on a device either on a phone or a smart tv or computer it only behaves 40% of the time. unfortunately the quality of the livestream isnt great As the camera thats filming the match cannot keep up. And a couple of times the app on the phone crashed and it took ages to relaunch Please sort the app out
Once you get in the app all is ok, however you have to update every time you use it. This has been the case for some time now and has not been fixed
This sucks! ZERO STARS! Constant errors and even when you get it to work - it doesn't work. Out of sync commentary etc. and well as being so far behind the live action that the actual app gives you goal notification spoilers before you see them on the actual game you're watching. COMPLETE DISASTER!
Tried to sign in but cannot remember my password so applied to get a password change but no response! 😡
very poor. expensive per game. no cast capability from app and poor quality sharing screen from chrome browser to tv.
Works only for my phone. Why should I pay £10 for one game to watch only on my phone. Video flashes on my tablet (only for this app) and it crashes on my Chromebook. Really disappointing.
Absolutely terrible. Audio just not playing on live matches. If you are lucky enough to get the match on then it is forever cutting out so you end up being more frustrated. I just don't understand why it's so hard to get right, especially when we are paying for a premium to "access" it.
Why is this not available on Google TV? It would seem logical that it would be supported. Generally works well on my Android (Pixel 3) phone... but would like to see the ability to CAST from the app to my chromecast(s).
Since the last update it is not possible to select Home or Away audio commentary Notofocations seem to be stuck on meaning that I am receiving confirmation of goals approx 30 seconds prior to the audio feed catching up (I understand that audio feeds will be slightly delayed) Please fix these issues. The app was fine previously
Unable to watch my team just text updates. Have also tried to used it on a mobile ,normal computer and laptop with mo success. Shame as the old format worked fine.
Not fit for purpose, I simply dont have the foggiest where u can actually purchase a match pass on this app.. truly terrible service in a time I simply cant go and see my team in person. I try buy the pass via a link given by the club Twitter for this to not even work - they've out done themselves this time 👏
Poor quality and at 10 quid a match you would expect some stability. Always running behind in the live stream, I get notifications about a goal b4 seeing it live. The quality is something from a time before HD. Sky sports subs work out cheaper per game and I get ultra HD and multi camera angles, instead we are left with something that looks like its filmed on a mobile phone and 1/2 the time misses the action totally. Lucky I get the home games as replacement for my season ticket!!!!! Shambles!!!
Like what everyone else has said it's more difficult than it's worth. The app like the EFL itself is an amateur design, is not for the fans of varying online ability and basically should be canned and give us our teams back not an all encompassing app. We don't support EFL in fact most fans detest the EFL and it's inability to do anything good for fans. we support our own club and need an app for own club, with logo and all.
AWFUL ... USED THE AUDIO FOR YEARS VIA POMPEY SITE WITHOUT EVERY HAVING A PROBLEM .... NOW I CANT EVEN LOG IN ..... CANCELLING MY AUDIO SUBSCRIPTION
The App does what it says on the tin, and I've not had any technical faults. My main complaints are about the PPV live stream. The quality of the camera work and audio is frankly amateurish at best, and the paranoia of trying to sell one game pass per person like seats in a stadium has obviously been behind the lack of screen casting support from the App. Just use screen mirroring software to laptop, then connect up to TV with the HDMI. ;)
No option to cast and poor quality camera work, often just a single camera at matches. Needs Chromecast support urgently.
Complete waste of time. Had to download as the previous club app has been replaced apparently. New app doesn't recognise my log in details and when I request a reset password link.... nothing happens. Don't they think to test these apps before release? And for new users there is no way to register. These issues have been reported on other reviews for many days now Nd still nothing has been done by the developers, nor is it even acknowledged. App is a bit like the EFL itself: not fit for purpose.
They offer to show all games - thats a lie. They dont show playoff games and they dont show top league games (eg 1st ranked vs 2nd ranked) because sky covers those. I did not end my subscription in May because i wanted to continue to watch in the new season. They charged me for June, WHEN THERE ARE NO GAMES BEING PLAYED!!! They wont even give me a refund. Just lose a customer you could have gotten hundreda of pounds from since i moved abroad and wanted to follow my club. Hope ifollow dies.
Useless - last attempt allowed me 30 minutes uninterrupted pre-match pitch view and 3.31 minutes of actual match. Not worth taking the chance of another wasted £10.
Unable to use my code to stream games have tried many times, given up now. Would prefer to give it no stars
Pay a tenner to watch a match? Don't bother. The apps content information is not working no tables, no match list or results! The quality of the broadcast is rubbish, the commentary has a time lag and there is only a single camera view and that's if you can overcome the complicated booking system and get on line. EFL the L sounds about right!
Only worked properly the first time I used it which induced me to take out a 1 month subscription. Every time since then it always has an error message and have not been able to watch any matches on my phone. PLEASE fix the app. It loses you money because my month's subscription has run out and after only being able to watch one match, I have to question whether it is worth renewing.
Rubbish. The app forced this update on me but it won't accept my log in details, and when I click on "forgot password" it tells me it has sent details to my email address as to how to reset my password. Except it doesn't. I've gone through this multiple times now and I've never had any emails for re-setting my password. And yes, I have checked in the Spam box. Total waste of time.
Transmission on the Exeter Tranmere Rovers was not live being 15 mins late. Knowing the correct score from another site caused great disappointment. Won't be buying any more match transmissions.
Only gave 1 star so it would post. Rubbish, this app is a pile of 💩. This time it took voucher but when tried to watch the game via the club site as instructed all we got was a black screen with a white half circle going round and round, would not bring the game up at all. People have paid for season tickets to support clubs and not getting to see games. NEEDS SORTING ASAP. Just logged in to try and watch highlights, no picture only black screen & sounds you cannot make out rubbish.
Hi, following an upgrade on the Android ifollow app for mobiles i have found I need to log in each time. Prior to upgrade my details were retained by the app. Can you explore changing this. Thanks
Keeps telling me I need to update it even though I have just uninstalled and reinstalled it. Very poor. Must do better. It's now 20 days on and this has not been fixed. :-( Boxing Day 2020. Does anyone care? No change. If I could give it a zero rating I would.
I can't even sign up, it keeps asking for email and password even though I've not signed up, what do I do
Works fine. May have to make a new account like I did with a new email as can't seem to close existing account. The problem with the app is the league tab. It only has the EFL trophy displayed and not the league tables. Also they are alphabetical and not in order of points. Oh and on top of that not even the correct EFL trophy group for my team. The news part work fine, which is essential for non premier team fans.
Rubbish, I had the old app for Bradford City, had no problems at all, was asked to update and I get this rubbish asking me to sign in, couldn't remember my password, 4 times tried to sign in each time said they had sent an email, no email, so now I can't get news on my football club, would not recommend this app to anyone
Cannot log on to this same as below. Asked for new password and reset. Once I had done this it wouldn't accept the details. How are we now going to watch the games. I want my money back instead. Season ticket paid up front!!!!
It seems that you have to pay outside the app. Which I did and I'm now watching what appears to be a slide show with a commentary ahead of the pictures. I've just now given up and will follow the game on Twitter.
Works fine for me although each time I open it it tells me to update to a new version even though there isn't one.
Had the my clubs ifollow had to upgrade to this garbage. On my clubs it had the commentary done by the club but now it is the local BBC radio station where I can get anywhere so my question is why I'm I paying for service which I can get for free on any local radio . This needs sorting out they don't even give you an option to cancel this service and get a refund. What a joke just like everything else the EFL does.
Poor quality streams, way behind live coverage. I get notified of goals about a minute before they are shown. Main problems: 1) Cost - way too expensive. Offer a multi game pass for a discount. 2) Needs to be a smart TV app so people can watch coverage on their TV'S. Launch apps on Roku, Fire TV, Android TV etc EFL - about time you showed you actually care! It's amazing how many poor reviews there are and you haven't bothered to reply to any of them?!!! Who is in charge of development?
Watched Bolton once and your wonderful app will not let me watch any other team!!!! As a forest green rovers fan this is a bit of an issue????
Utterly useless! Ditto to all the other reviews. Was quite happy with previous app. Forced to download this pile of tripe and now can't sign in. Nice to see that the makers of the app are showing they really care by not responding to all the issues that customers/fans are having. Well done 👏👏👏 6/10/2020 update - STILL USELESS. updated app, as instructed. when trying to open it, it STILL won't let me sign in. Clicked on 'forgotten password' to generate reset email. No email sent!
Always clear and reliable but no option to choose the commentary you want to listen to. Why would I want to listen to the opposition commentary when I've subscribed to listen to my own teams commentary? An update to choose on the app is much needed
It really is rubbish, nothing opening eg tables and fixtures. Plus you cannot cast paid for games to your TV. I have also just updated the app as well. Reluctant to give it one star. I will be interested to see if EFL take note of the comments and try and remedy the app.
I am impressed. You have managed to take the sorry excuse for an app from last year and make it even worse. So far this season i have had an issue with every single game i have listened to live. I also really love the notification that pings on my phone to tell me that the team selection has been announced only to click on it and find you cannot see the information anywhere in the app. Good work.
Absolutely no information on how to set up the account or app, but I eventually found that on the club website that you have to set an account there before downloading the app then using your club account you can then login to the app, must say once in the app is OK. Just a pain in the **** it took so long to work out what to do.
A waste of time. What is the purpose of this app? It will not allow you to purchase a subscription, it says to contact your clubs website. What's the point of that? All it allows yoy to do is view historical highlights or complete matches. The iFollow stream from my clubs site (CCFC) fails to play. I spent the whole 90 minutes of Saturday's game on a pretty useless chat help line.
Lot of nonsense. Should have a working system before trying to 'sell' it. Wasted a lot of time trying to get a password. They were supposed to text me details of how to do this - password, etc. Nothing came. Does the club have to use these systems, instead of just having a system to download, like they have had for years.
I've just watched an interview with Carlton Morris. Well I say watched but the screen was blank throughout the interview. Not the first time! I can not remember experiencing this sort of blip on the old Application.
Accidently paid by card, due to having to put in card details even when using a free voucher. Silly rushed system, why do you even need my card details if I'm not paying for anything. Now have to go through hassle of getting money back.
There's a major bug using this on my Neocore Android tablet in that this app displays upside down compared to all the other apps that I have installed on it. Other than that the functionality is good. I've downgraded this app by one star as I find the display bug spoils the usability. It's irritating. I had no problems with the previous incarnations of this software - it's only since EFL iFollow took the franchise, at the start of season 2019 - 2020, that I've had the upside down display.
When it opens it goes straight to the login screen. Asks for email and password. But I've never logged in before so how do I sign up?
Poor in- match content, no lineups, in game stats or text updates etc. App is really basic and just seems a protal to access the live commentry / stream. Highlights and interviews etc. do appear, but usually long after they are available elswhere (e.g. skybet website).
PATHETIC. I would give NO stars if i could. This new app is rubbish. What was wrong with the old 1. EFL clubs should be ashamed to let a good app be changed to a bad 1. Cant load it. Will not recognise email or password and some times no response at all. If someone at the EFL is reading these and other peoples comments then sack the IT department. Youve been had. App now deleted from my phone. Plenty of other apps to choose from. Bye bye
Fed up with having to update the app EVERY time I want to look at it. The previous version was much better
Stupid. Had no issues until the update and now it won't let me log in or reset my password. Missing out on team news and stuff because if it. Had to give it 1 star or it won't let me review
Useless app. Wont even open on my tablet anymore. I've got the most recent update. God forbid you try to contact ifollow to let them know of any issues, you wont get a reply!
Like others on here, I had no problems with the old app. Installed the new one. Had to re input my password and payment details. I missed my team's game as I couldn't access the game despite following instructions. I got stuck at payment details and couldn't get further. No reply from live chat. I've emailed them for help. I've reinstalled the app several times. I'm supposed to get free access to home games as part of my season ticket. Not happy.
Fxxxing irritating! Asks EVERY time I open it if I want to update. Why has this not been fixed? Now! Worked ok last season.
Still waiting to update but can't find where/how. Ok if I want to watch highlights but then the similar Sky app is much better all round
It should be possible to Chromecast from the app. The quality of the production is amateurish. Bad camera gear and poor camera skills. Sound frequently out of sync. Noisey locations for I reviews. The guy isn't even using a fluid head tripod. The support staff are rude and condescending and even disconnect web chat on purpose. I notice the developer hasn't even bother to respond to reviews. They just don't care. Dreadful service.
Paid for a season audio pass. Midway thru the season my team (Forest) no longer recognised. Nothing from EFL or Forest. No access to the audio commentary I paid for. Disgusted you can just cut off people who have paid, have each party blaming the other and not deliver on a contractual agreement. Cut your losses and use something (anything) else
Like most reviewers I don't like the new version it's not easy to use and I paid for a live match 10 pounds and then could not watch because there was no link appearing to watch the stream really poor.
Looking as if I've been conned. £10 to watch a match on my phone? FRO! You're getting no more money out of me. Can't believe you can't watch this on the TV.
29/01/2021. Still waiting for an update. There is a new version...do you want to update? Answer "No thanks" and it closes app. Answer "Yes" and it takes you to Google Play store...and prompts you to "Open" rather than Update implying you already have the latest version. If I could give it a zero rating I would.
Dreadful. As others, forced to install when trying to open the old club app. The new app won't open, just get "try again sorry there was an error". Reinstalled - same thing - gave up. I do have an EFL log in but can't get as far as logging in. Rubbish, just rubbish, there was nothing wrong with the old one.
Absolute garbage. After trying to watch the match last week, all I could get was the buffering circle of doom. Tried contacting the match support...waste of time, nothing. Complained this week, got a response saying they did not give refunds. Rather than use the clubs website to access the game they suggested to go direct through this app. Where??? This poor service has been ongoing since it started, but to support the club I have persevered. No more. Back to watching it on the radio.
Really confusing, frustrating and disappointing experience. Not working today for me for unknown reasons, I've just wasted a full 45 mins trying to get it to work with no success. Last match I lost 20 mins due to technical difficulties. It's 2020 I don't understand why this service is so poor.
Told me my email and password was wrong never sent the email to reset total waste of time the app is awful!
This app is good for accessing on demand videos. But the biggest criticism I have for this app (and the iOS App) is the inability to use Chromecast in the app or through HDMI Mirroring (you get the sound, but no video on live streams, which is very annoying given that I want to watch the match LIVE on a TV through Mirroring when the Desktop version doesn't load a live video stream). Please fix this in an update as soon as possible (for BOTH the Android and iOS Apps so I can update my review).
Absolutely rubbish, I had a perfectly good version for my club and I was forced to update. Now I can not access my club or the EFL one. The season is about to start so I suggest you get your finger out and get it sorted, either remove the new version or make sure we can access the new one. VERY DISAPPOINTED
Worst app ever. I'm asked to re-install every time and it still doesn't let me book video access. I have to do that through PNE's home site.
Installed, logged in, paid for monthly subscription, allowed all cookies but doesn't work for listening to matches much of the time on phone. Better on laptop but want to use phone. Wrote to contact email, got auto reply and, three weeks later, no reply. Poor, poor customer service.
can't stream video for more than a couple of seconds before hanging. laptop connected to same router streams no problem. clearly the app at fault.
The app blurb implies that you can watch a live stream, however when I tried to do this there is no information telling you how.
Ridiculous that there is no cast function and no Android TV version either. Video quality is low bit rate and choppy, and app is missing functionality so some functions need to be done via website. Ability to watch games online is vital at the moment, but ifollow is a very poor quality product for £10 a game
