Only bug I've found is that the app won't sign into Facebook Beta, which I've not experienced since using Beta. As to it's popularity, I'm guessing that those in Scotland & Wales will download it, the English won't bother, but for all those Lumia 520 bought in 'emerging markets' proved they can read English & their in The Commonwealth, it'll be a hit!!

Only loads long for the first time. There after it loads a lot lesser.
I guess it needs to update a lot of info about many sports.

Can we get any trick to subscribe CWG2014 games schedule in our outlook calendar just like FIFAWORLDCUP2014? I think that will be best if we get country wise games schedule in outlook calendar.

Shame that there will hardly be anyone downloading this add it'll make the developers think twice about developing for Windows Phone again :(

Agree that it doesn't have a smooth UI. But its functional and you get all the info. Many apps are worse than this.

Does anyone really care about this? I see stupid stuff get twice as many comments in seconds, unlike this thing.

I'm guessing India. As the CG excludes the US and Brazil, India is probably the biggest user base in the Commonwealth. The fact you can watch virtually any of the sports on interactive TV or online in the UK will negate me needing this. The BBC have it pretty well sewn up for coverage.

i am loving it to be honest! has been fantastic and helpful when i have been at all the games, updates quickly and has really made things simple to follow in the games. So happy they made a WP app

This is interesting to me as a typical ignorant of the rest of the world's sporting activities as American football has a grip on all the idiots over here. Nearly every sport is better than the time and money sink we call football. ESPN 3?? Where can I watch some events? Live streaming?
