    Like many of you, I keep up to date on tennis scores through my smartphone. The US Open has their own mobile app which I installed on Android, and it only works less than half of the time! It fails to load or when it does load it does so very slowly and it takes forever to update.

    Has anyone else had this problem or am I the only one? Is it any better on iPhone? I do not recall last year's app being this abysmal.

    rant over.

    I have it on the iPhone and have had no problems with it.

    I have even streamed live video for a couple of hours via the app with no problems. Works great.

    It's been pretty sluggish for me as well (iPhone). I find myself repeatedly jabbing the screen because I can't tell if my taps have registered or not.

    Haven't tried to stream video yet.

    App has worked great on my Android, both for scores and video.

    The app was working ok on my iPhone until 2 days ago. Now it just opens and crashes.

    Yep same here........an update was released the other day but didn't help much. I just wish they would keep the ATP/WTA app up during the slams. The ATP/WTA LIVE app is awesome.

    The Watch Live button is so tiny it takes me like 10 times to press it properly on the iPhone. About 25% of the time the app crashes when I try to watch video.
