Finally Broke My Crowdfunding Rule
By oblivion437
Posted on 01/12/15
I've had a long-standing rule to avoid getting involved in any sort of crowdfunded activities.  I didn't donate to Shadowrun or Wasteland, but I did buy and enjoy both of them (I'm plugging both of those games right now, just so you know they're good).  I haven't...

DAILY MANIFESTO

Call of Duty Elite Mobile App Impressions

Posted on Tuesday, January 10 @ 10:06:28 Eastern by

This morning, I unlocked my iPhone's screen and navigated my way to the iTunes App Store. I searched for "Call of Duty Elite" and found Activision's official Call of Duty Elite App for mobile platforms. I downloaded and installed the app. I opened the app by selecting it for my phones home screen. I input my log in information and selected Xbox 360 as my preferred platform.

I see nothing more than what I've captured above. Nothing. I've played many matches of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, but the app continues to mock me. Why? Why release a prodcut that's completely unfinished and broken? The app flatout refuses to connect to Activision's servers. Instead, I've got a large section of my iPhone's memory locked away by Call of Duty and nothing to do with it.

It seems like every time I've ever been even remotely interested in using the heavily market service, it fails to provide for even a modicum of its promises. When Modern Warfare 3 originally launched, I logged on to Elite to see what the bother was about, only to be met with service errors and 404 pages. Now the launch of the iPhone app peaks my interest again only to dash all hopes of even seeing a welcome screen.

If you've downloaded the free app on your iPhone, let me know if you've had more success in the comments. If you're waiting for the Android version of the app that's set to launch next week, I hope they've fixed it by then.

At least these stupid apps are easy to uninstall.
