    “which is optimised for devices 7″ and below” – Does this mean they were too lazy to code the app for tablets too?

    I downloaded the App, but it seems exactly the same as the bookmarked version I already have on my device for their mobile sport web page, which does all the same things, so I can not see the point in this App unless I have missed a really obviously point, it is not significantly quicker, or smoother or content wise any better?
