Roland-Garros is a well designed app with some fine features, like live radio, but it is not without it’s faults. One complaint we had is that the scores are displayed by court, making it difficult to find the results or score of a particular match unless you happen to know the name of the court on which it is played. They also seem to lack a schedule. They display the draws, but no times or dates are given for when the matches are played. On the plus side, the scores results and news seem to be updated in a timely manner and they have ample video highlights in addition to live audio coverage.
