Explanations for some of you!
Dear user,

I worked hard into this app making design, graphics, programming, deploying, marketing and support and I make it available in various versions for iOS and for all major desktop platforms (including free and donationware).
With the users contribution, I've also implemented more than 30 languages because I think that this is a way to respect all users and cultures (the official FIFA app support 4 language with sponsors like Visa, Coca Cola, Sony, Emirates, Adidas, Hyundai, Kia).
Despite the app is far from perfect, I've received many good feedback from enthusiasts users from many countries...
... but with a noticeable exception: the App Store reviews !

Since is highly likely that the reviewers has confused some things, let's see a small selection (from that written in english) of the top 3 topics:

1) Before World Cup kickoff the app downloaded random data useful for evaluation (and a message appears informing about the DEMO DATA) but some users write reviews like this:

Does not work ★
by ****** - Version 1.0 - May 29, 2014
With 12 days to go before the WC starts, this app shows as over half of the games have been played already… Don't waste your money!

2) As you know, when an update is submitted to Apple, it will be reviewed and approved and the process requires 5-6 days, but while waiting for Apple release some users write reviews like this:

Wrong Data ★
by ****** - Version 1.2 - Jun 18, 2014
Wrong Data Group A and F, waiting for update 3 days. We dont need the Update after the Cup, we need it now!

3) An last but not least, the worse reviews ever seen that includes also offending terms:

This is a expensive joke ★
by ****** - Version 1.2 - Jun 13, 2014
I bougth this thinking I could watch the match live, no way, the only thing live was the charge on my card!

Big idiot..i want a refund ★
by ****** - Version 1.2 - Jun 13, 2014
there is no display just statistics and score..where is the matches?

Well, it is very easy to verify that into the website, into all AppStore descriptions and into all images there is NOT a word or phrase that say that you can WATCH the matches (even the official FIFA app not allow to WATCH matches).

So, while I really can't imagine how is possible to think that a 3$ app may allow to WATCH Brazil 2014 World Cup despite all international rights of FIFA and big TV networks, what can I say?
I would be tempted to ask "who's the big idiot?"...
...but in fact I still continue to appreciate ALL users opinions (even the bizarre ones).

The problem, however, is that the app is heavy disadvantaged because the purchase decisions rely mainly on the reviews of the other customers.

So, if you think that this app is not so bad and if you mostly think that it is not a fraud, please consider to write your opinion into a public place like the AppStore by following the links below (based on version that you're using):

Thank you very much.
