Roland Garros app devs should be ashamed of themselves

Look at this screenshot. Yes, a tennis app is over 10 megabytes in size. The developers should be deeply ashamed of themselves. They need to remember that they are writing for a MOBILE device, and shouldn’t add everything and the kitchen sink in it. Besides they have a really slow server for the download, it keeps stalling on me.


On May 27th French Open (Roland Garros) starts again and I’m looking forward to it.

I can only hope that the app, with all the stupid 3d shit in it, will also have access to Radio Roland Garros. If not, then the app is worthless to me, and won’t stay for long on my device. Currently, it doesn’t have very many favorable reviews on the Google Play market.

Btw, for the people desperate for their (English) Radio Roland Garros fix, if you install the TuneIn app, you can find French Open Radio in there, that’s the same thing. Then you can enjoy Gigi’s, Nick’s, both Matts’, Craig’s, and Chris’ analyses and play-by-play of the day’s matches.

This is what my desktop looks like

What you see here is a chatclient (irssi), vlc in another corner, and a terminal emulator running alsamixer.

The window manager is called I3. Which is a tiling window manager. First window you open is opened in full screen, any other window gets added next to it or underneath it.

BTW, for the eagle-eyes among us, the background that’s shown in the VLC video is a photo from the trainstation in Den Bosch.
