I use it, and I like it. It is easier than using the full website on my phone. I think I paid $8 for one year of using it. I've been able to accept games quickly as well as look up my partners without any hassle while on the go. I think it was worth it, and when it comes time to renew, I'll probably get it for a couple of years.

I use it for some things. Unfortunately I don't have an iPhone so it doesn't work very well for my phone. If I had an iPhone I would definitely use it more.

Where did you even find the app? I can't find it in iTunes (searched for both "arbiter" and "arbitersports".

It's just a mobile website, I think.

Oh. Well that's a lot different that a mobile app. I use that already - and I'm pretty sure I didn't pay anything to use it.

It's "Arbiter connected" not just any mobile website and it certainly isn't free...

Basicly its a mobile app that allows you to setup how/when you want to be notified —via email, text or both.

More information is located under the Connected tab in your user account!

The full website works well on my phone. I'm just not sure it's worth the cost.

And I already get emails, which also come to my phone, to tell me about changes.

By app, we're talking about something that can be downloaded from an app store. And, AFAIK, that doesn't exist.

I get emails and txt msgs from the main website - so still not sure what the added value is for paying for anything.

When it was brand new like a year or so ago, I got to try it free for a month. I didn't like it enough to pay for it, I could use the full website on my phone without any problems since that's what I've done before the mobile site came out.

Got it and have used it since it first came out...can get updates/new assignments/communicate with crew all within a matter of minutes rather than waiting until I get home and loggin on. Game reminders, etc are not critical but a nice feature. "On the fly" and done with it rather than waiting to get home and check nightly. More than worth the nominal fee.

I do all this through my mobile web browser. Most times, I accept a game within minutes of getting an email from Arbiter, regardless of where I am.

It's great, but has no additional functionality than the full website. However, it's easier to read and navigate about the screens. IIRC, $7 is good for 3 years.
