GamingBuddy adds sharing powered by Universal Links, OpenCritic integration
New version 1.5.0 of game discovery app GamingBuddy lets users easily share game recommendations with friends. Plus, it features OpenCritic to see scores and reviews for new games easily.
Universal Links sharing
Every game in GamingBuddy can be shared as a simple link with one button tap. These links also work in browsers and show all the essential information without the app installed. The page also displays a native app banner in Safari to install GamingBuddy easily.
In addition to being fully responsive, GamingBuddy Universal Links also render rich previews inside Messages and other apps for the best possible experience.
GamingBuddy now has game ratings from review aggregator OpenCritic via the official API. This means that most new games (and those just being released) have summary scores on a detail page that lists the average score, OpenCritic tier, and how many critics recommended the game.
GamingBuddy Unlimited subscribers can also browse and read all the available reviews.
GamingBuddy version 1.5.0 is available from September 7 from the App Store.
