only problem is that smart phones are almost completely useless on Yahoo Fantasy.
Their mobile compatibility is so ridiculously awful that its not even worth doing anything other than simply checking your teams stats.... and sometimes even that is impossible.
take my example from today:
i checked the lineups and realized that Lowrie was not playing for Boston, so i attempted to move sub him out for Kelly Johnson.
I go to my team page and of course it freezes when the page finally loads. So i zoom in and out, refresh it a couple time, and finally the screen is useable.
And of course its stuck in Drag n Drop mode, even tho i last used it in Classic Mode, and even tho you cant even use drag n drop from a mobile device! awesome right?
After 3 attempts to get it into classic mode i finally am able to open the position slider for Lowrie and KJ and make the switch.
I scroll down and go to hit "submit" and guess what.. there is NO SUBMIT BUTTON! thats right, both tabs are listed as "cancel"
it looks like |CANCEL|
so i have to refresh the page AGAIN, repeat the entire process because of course the screen locks up AGAIN, and of course its stuck in drag n drop AGAIN. i finally get teh changes all set, and the "submit" button is actually finctional.
so i hit submit and...
it logs me out! ya, instead of submitting teh changes, i was actually logged out of my fantasy account and taken to the login page.
and once again, you cant login from a mobile phone because the page freezes and the area where you need to enter your password is not even accessible. teh only way to log back in is to go to another Yahoo web site (like Yahoo mail) login tehre then go back to your Fantasy team and hope you stay signed in.
At this point i had already spent literally 20 minutes trying to make one simple little change that should've taken less than 30 seconds, and i finally gave up.
Why cant Yahoo realease an app or fix their awful mobile issues?
sorry to go on a long offtopic rant, If mods want to delete this maybe ill post this somewhere else.edit -
mods, i just posted the letter i submitted to yahoo (which is very very similar to what i wrote above) in a separate thread, so if you want to delete this post its fine with me)
