“Friends & Family” Testing Results – Vikings @ Bears

October 10, 2017

We had about 15 “friends & family” users testing during Monday Night Football, Vikings @ Bears.  I’m still soliciting feedback from the users, but from a technical standpoint, we were about 90% successful.  We had a few issues (like scoring on the fake punt for a TD pass), but for the most part everything worked […]

Testing: Lions @ Giants Monday Night Football

September 19, 2017

Testing went really well during the Monday night game in NY.  The app ran very well, and for the first time since we’ve started testing I felt like I could just sit back, watch the game and make my play-by-play predictions.  There were no crashes or freezes, and data transfer was fast and accurate.  Life […]

Tony Romo, a BenchBoss expert already?

September 18, 2017

Tony Romo again calls out plays during broadcast This article and the premise behind it was the thought behind BenchBoss.  The goal was always to build a game that was less luck-based and would consistently reward those who better understood the ins-and-outs (X’s and O’s, if you will) of football.  Just as this article points […]

Testing Results: Sunday, 9/17/2017

September 18, 2017

Another weekend passed without any “real” human testers (other than developers and those working on the project).  While it is disheartening, it is for the better in the long run.  We will get to “live human trials” sometime soon, and by the time we do get there the app should be working really well. Many […]

We still have some […]

We still have a few bugs and issues to work out. […]
