GamingBuddy v2 brings improved navigation, new widget, recent reviews & more
Version 2.0 improves the core experience, makes favorites easier to access, adds a new tab with recent reviews from large outlets, adds a new widget type and features a professional new icon.
The new update brings tab-based navigation that separates the “Favorites” section into its own tab for better access. The dedicated favorites screen also presents upcoming games in a special “Up Next” section. This also means users can freely browse upcoming games while having access to their favorite ones without navigating backward.
New tab bar navigation also introduces the “Reviews” screen, which features recent reviews from the most popular websites (for example, IGN, GameSpot, and more). Each review card has a summary snippet, score (if available), and the ability to view game details in the app for easy favoriting.
Featured Up Next Widget
It's the first widget that does not require favorited games to work. Instead, this Up Next variant shows the soonest releasing games from the “Featured” list in the app. A GamingBuddy Unlimited subscription is required.
Brand new icon
The previous icon was made quickly to get the app to the store. Version 2.0 brings professional app icon inspired by the “D-Pad” on game controllers where each button showcases app features.
GamingBuddy 2.0 will be available November 7 from the App Store.
