What could be improved on the app?
Whilst overall we are very impressed with the design of the app, it could be a little easier to jump in between different markets. We would also like to see a more modern, user friendly account area to check on bets and also update details. Live streaming can also be improved to offer more sports and whilst this isn’t necessary an ‘app’ issue, we feel it would improve the bookie as a whole.
