Virtual Regatta for PC and MAC

Great concept, Terrible Upgrades Note that the upgrades are only for the one race, which isn't made clear. This would be a great app and was looking forward to putting it through it's paces running multiple races, but the upgrades let it down

9,95EUR for options in only one Race? I can't see any options available, so I wonder if you charged me 9,95 for that last Race alone?

Steering is not accurate, no wind speed on wind arrows. Very basic in general. Not to impressed. Gives inaccurate speed when changing course so you have to refresh all the time.

Issues Does not work on my samsung tablet. It just gives me errors

Mismatch with online version, made me grounded several time on the last VOR leg!!!

Direction setting not accurate, ran aground many times!

No You have to sign in first. Save your time.

Usefull but mismatch with online version I would give it a higher ranking but it made me run aground twice during volvo ocean race leg 5. Dropping from top 100 to 2500th position. Today i found the reason and it is because there is a mismatch between the app version and the online version. I got screenshots to prove it. I will not use the app anymore to steer my boat. Only the online version. @virtualregatta, you can contact me if you are interested in the screenshots.

Lacking functions least it works...but it is lacking functions compared to the website version. For example it is impossible to preview the possible track of the boat during next hours. For me this app it is not more than an extreme backup emergency...and quite bad designed also. Shame.

Inaccurate Ran aground twice last leg. Noticed error between PC and mob app that the mobile selected track was displaced horizontally. The app showed my desired track running to the east of some islands coming into Itaji. The same track on the PC showed me going West of same islands and running aground when I thought I was clear to the finish. Bad

The app doesn't show land in the proper place and I frequently run aground.

Bearslair Can't access the game keeps telling me there is an error. Can't check my boat.

Unusable. Changes your scheduled TWA program to nothing but 162 degrees magnetic. So small you can't see what the heck is going on even with a 10 inch tablet. Waypoints the size of the boats, with no lines between them! The online version stinks too, but at least you can do something with it.

Brillant Brilliant game just like on a real boat

Not great Its crashing even before I start. Keeps telling me invalid error. Uninstalled then reinstalled and seems to be ok.

Buggy, broken App constantly force closes, zooming is broken and developers don't care.

Can't launch game I get an invalid checksum message at first launch on nexus 7. Please fix it as this is poor customer experience.

This app has much improved since I last used it. Now I can easily check on my boat and sail all day. Also, the customer service of Virtual Regatta is great, very courteous and professional.

P.B. This app sucks. There's no grid, no wind speed on director arrows. Compared to the 2011 game it's very disappointing. Update---3/26/15 logs on once then every time after that I get (unfortunately the game is stoped working) sent my Tab3 ,also no response from VR

Terrible app - bring back original VORG app The original app was way better than this. I can't believe that volvo ocean race would be associated with this bad quality and features

Useless Bought all the add ons but the scheduler doesn't work properly. Use it but your boat is never where it should be. Cut the uce exclusion zone and now loosing places because if it. Given up now.

Scrolling & zoom to select yacht and course App was nice in the beginning. Also had issue with the app disappearing on phone. Since previous leg was coming to an end, you struggle to zoom in on your yacht to select it. And even worse you cannot scroll ahead to plot your course. Thank you for sorting out the glitches so quickly! Yay, we can sail easier again!

Annoying app - screen refresh crap Couldn't get off land after running aground for hours as the app couldn't show which direction to get off. Tried 5 degree increments from 180 degrees to the direction I was headed when I crashed but no success. Dropped 8000 places while trying to get moving again. Screen shots show me in the middle of a small box. Extremely annoying and wasted 3 weeks of effort.

Update Removed launch ability After the update the launch icons disappeared, how long before this is rectified? After new update launch sorted. Thanks

Launch icon disappeared from my experia z1 and pb tablet. Tried reinstalling but no good. So called improved zoom as bad as ever...And don't simply say... Thankyou for you understanding.... I don't understand how such an error can occur! New fix allows use, but zoom still really bad on my Sony experia Z and 10inch tablet

Just updated and no way to launch the app What the heck happened? The leg just launched and i cant even get into the app? I just uninstalled the app and reinstalled it and now nothing. Wondering what place i am in now. update.....just updated i can see im already in the back of the fleet but i cant zoom out or over to make my boat go. Thank god i didnt waste money on the paid features.

Inconsistant Sometimes you cannot see the other boats and now its not possible to buy the extras...frustrating as the racing is fun. The update has wiped the VR a off my pad...cannot reinstall. Very frustrating..please fix..Otherwise i have paid 20 euros for very little.its working again...thank you thank you

No reply Can't even play due to error. Please fix. I sent you email, hope to hear from you soon. Will give more stars once this fix and hear from you. Would like to play.

Finally usable One day after a catastrophic update just hours before Volvo Ocean Race's 5th leg start, we get a new (working) update. Though it's now working, the app lacks a lot of functionality compared to the web version. Please improve.

Not opening Not opening properly.. many thanks. Working again.

Full of %$$t Update that makes it disappear just one hour before VOR leg starts. Do I have to say anymore. Edit: now you can launch app but can't go east from Auckland.

DO NOT DOWNLOAD THIS UPDATE DOES NOT WORK. VR you are incompetent .aha you fixed it! Next time try a test run before you change!!!

New update = not able to change course The new update means I've not been able to play the game on my Samsung S5 phone. It won't let you zoom in on the boat or adjust course track

Puffin I see the app is up and running. All as we now is to be able to see our boat. Needs to be centred

New update fixed the problem opening the app. Thanks for the quick fix!

Don't bother For such a basic app they get so many things wrong. Volvo should be ashamed to be even vaguely associated.

And there it was - Gone! Special update my a***e. It's just disappeared right before the start of leg 5. Nice work Team VR.

Glitchy shit This app is so hard to use espically now that we have near new zealand in the volvo ocean race and the app glitches out when you zoom in, also it is barely in sync with the web app please improve i only use this app when it is urgent or i cannot get to a computer and espically when i am busy at crutial wind change times and only have this app it is frustrating and i would like to see this app improved so that more people can have a better race experience

Useless Since 17 March update app no longer shows up at homescreen or app drawer. In addition, compass rose (now sailing east of NZ) is too far to the right of the screen so courses cannot be set. Useless app now.
