NFL Mobile updated for ICS, still doesn’t work on Galaxy Nexus

NFL Mobile updated for ICS, still doesn’t work on Galaxy Nexus
Verizon got everyone all riled up with excitement when it announced that its customers could watch the Super Bowl through the NFL Mobile app. When the Samsung Galaxy Nexus was finally released, early adopters were dishearten to find out the app was not palatable on Ice Cream Sandwich. Verizon was said to have an update out to fix this issue on January 4th.

Today Verizon released an update to make NFL Mobile compatible with Ice Cream Sandwich, unfortunately while it was nice that it was released a day early, Samsung Galaxy Nexus owners are reporting that the updated app still does not work on their devices. In short, thanks for nothing. Hopefully Verizon will be able to iron out the kinks shortly and get the NFL Mobile app up and running for Galaxy Nexus owners.

Have any of our Galaxy Nexus toting readers tried using the updated NFL Mobile app?

Ya tuis is some bull crap man. Ever since i bought the phone, this has been the 1 app ive been waiting for and now they say the update will work on it but still doesnt, is pretty horrible. Doesnt verizon know how to TEST an app before they say itll work???....

this is one of the reasons i dont buy nexus phones right away (if i do at all). Apps for ICS are not going to be optimized for a while yet. By the time my sgs2 gets it, everything will more than likely be brought over.
