    Ultimate has gone to pot recently, are there any alternatives?

    I haven't noticed any problems lately with ultimate.... If anything I've noticed it's more stable that it used to be.

    Only complaint I ever had for UR was when the ads on the free version lagged the whole thing when they were about to make the move over to the pay model but I like the app so much that I subscribed. Not one issue since.

    I haven't subscribed, any time I open it it takes ages.

    Only thing left in the free version is the score, can't see the lineups or comments any more.

    Leinster app is also not worth the space on the phone..

    The full version is worth the tenner per year

    +1 for Tribe. I moved there after a recommendation from another poster here. Great customisation of your home screen, shows you only the leagues and teams you want to see. Notifications can be excellently tailored too, to prompt you with as much or as little as you'd like to know. It works for many sports also, but I have it configured just for rugby.

    Additional note I should add, I moved to it after losing my crap with Ultimate Rugby who decided that the starting lineup should be hidden behind a paywall.

    Third nod for Tribe. Not just rugby, it's pretty great for other sports too.

    Hmmm, thanks! Looks good. I, too, got sick of in-app marketing from Ultimate Rugby.

    Tried tribe but it wanted access to either my facepuke or google account so said no. I have neither on my phone.

    Downloaded it yesterday on this recommendation, it just requires an email address for verification, not access to your google account.

    It’s pretty good to be honest, especially as you can customize it to your interests.

    Still using UR, like most have said its grand with subscription. By any chance does tribe have lineups and scores for eagles games? Eg Celtic cup

    I'll try it again, normally I'm quick to delete stuff that asks for that info.

    I'm getting a wee bit tired of the create account page that keeps popping up when I open the app though
