Verizon's NFL app (finally) working on the Galaxy Nexus
This year Verizon one-upped themselves when that the NFL playoffs and Super Bowl would be streamed live to NFL Mobile equipped handsets (live video isn’t available on tablets), but when the Galaxy Nexus shipped the app was not compatible with ICS devices.
With the imminent arrival of the NFL playoffs, football-loving Galaxy Nexus owners were getting nervous, especially after an update did not materialize on the rumored target date of January 4th. The meandering tale of NFL intrigue took another odd turn when the app was finally updated but failed to work on the Galaxy Nexus, despite explicitly stating that the update was to enable Ice Cream Sandwich devices.
Exasperated football fans can rejoice, as this morning the NFL Mobile app works on the Galaxy Nexus, without requiring an update. Apparently the problem was not with the app, but with the server authentication; Big Red must have caught and squashed the bug overnight.
Just in the nick of time Verizon, the wildcard round kicks off Saturday!

Too bad this app is a bloated piece. I use it for checking scores and thats about it. I will say its better than it was a few years ago when it was partnered with Sprint..but thats not really saying much.

I find it very sluggish and unresponsive at times..and I'm running this on a dual core phone with minimal stuff running in the background.
Maybe it just doesn't like me, but I feel for an 'official' app they could do much better.
