View Full Version : Buggy iOS app

The GRN app is a great idea. Shame it's not working correctly at the moment.
Typing in this forum via my iPhone is anoying as the letters do not update as you type.
The buttons on the iPhone app are far too small and the background image obscures the information on the page.
If I can figure out how to post a pic on here via my iPhone I will show you.
When using gunsmith in sync mode, it says "&gametag" when choosing the class. I presume this should show my PSN name (I play on PS3). again a pic would explain better. I will post more issues as I find them.
I really want this to work.

Hi glassfish, thank you for your feedback, I'll pass this on to the developers.

I just tried to access the gunsmith gallery via the iOS app.
The first page says I can press the icon to add Gunsmith gallery to my home page.
There is no icon because the app does not open the page in safari. The only button available is 'done' which takes you back to the GRN app.
The career button also links to the website version in the same way. So you have to log in again.
It is easier to quit the app and go directly to the web site.
This is not ideal as the web site is not built with an iPhone screen in mind.
Some parts of the page don't scroll so obscure the page making it unusable.
The GRN app needs to have its own bespoke career page.
the forum is much easier to use when accessed directly and not via the app.
If you are going to have external links in the app. I think it would be better if they closed the app and opened in the full browser. You could have a pop up saying 'this links to the full web page.' you will loose the 'Done' button. but a simple double click Home and there's the app button.
The app says I have no challenges?
Loving the game. The apps gona be great.
Oh yes there should also be an option to turn off the 'how to' intro.

The app is not just buggy. It is POORLY DESIGNED. Period.
1) Even when you tell it to "Remember Me", you have to manually log in every time.
2) With the exception of the Gunsmith section, the entire app is merely a front end for the website. You click on any section, and it takes you to Ubi's GRN website. The worst part is, you have to LOG IN AGAIN on the website through the app you supposedly just logged in with!
Why was this app even designed anyway? Apart from the Gunsmith section, it is actually worse and more inconvenient to use this app than it is to go to the website itself with Safari.
The quality of development on ALL sides at Ubi has become terrible. This app is badly designed and implemented. The game itself is badly designed in several spots. The MP is often unplayable due to the servers (if you look at my stats I have 34, yes, 34, incomplete matches or disconnects due to the server and lag.)
Oh, Ubi, what happened to you?
A disgruntled LONG TIME Ghost Recon player,
P.S. Check out the console section of the forum. Reports are coming out now that Gamestop is no longer even accepting trade-ins of GRFS because they have so many they can't sell them all. How the mighty have fallen.
