Almost all of us was a fan of WWE in our young years, and we had our heroes in the form of the fighters. Although some of us have lost the interest in WEE, there are still those that love it and won’t miss even one event. Nowadays, wrestling has become a multi-million dollar industry that has hundreds of fighters and all kinds of events. For Windows 8 users that still love WWE, we give you the official WWE app for Windows 8.
If you are a WWE fan, they you will be able to keep a close watch on all the news, fights and events via your Windows 8 device y using the WWE app. Also, for those longing to see their heroes from when they were kids, the WWE app for Windows 8 can provide photos, videos and other information.
WWE app for Windows 8 – Good, not great
This free app is available for download in the Windows Store, but keep in mind that it is not available in any country. There are a few knock-offs of the official WWE app, but they don’t come near the quality of this one. If you do want the app, but it isn’t available in your country, you can always enable all the Windows Store apps and then install it.
While the WWE app for Windows 8 provides a good resource for wrestling fans, where they can find the latest news, a Hall of Fame, information on current and past WWE members, videos and pictures from fights, the app has a few minor issues with the computer compatibility. The UI is excellent to use on a touchscreen interface, but when you bring a mouse and keyboard into the mix, things are not working as good, particularly the scrolling through menus and articles.
The user interface of the WWE app for Windows 8 has a tile-style menu that can be scrolled to the left and reveal all the categories of information you have access to. Users that want to search for a specific player can use the Search charm and in a few moments, they can find all manner of information about any player they’d like.
The quality of the information contained within the app is pretty good, the articles are nicely written and they are well placed. There were no problems reading or skipping from one article to another (except when I had to scroll). The images have pretty decent quality, but the videos that you can watch from the official WWE app for Windows 8 are not as good as I hoped. The video player is pretty basic, offering only playback controls and no possibility to change the resolution.
At some times, due to the intense graphics that the app has to load, I did notice a slight lag, but not something to be upset about. I also likes that there are no ads in the app and thanks to the developers, the never crashed or encountered any other problem during testing.
I’d like to say more about the WWE app for Windows 8, but I don’t want to spoil the fun for those who love this sport and what to use the app of their Windows 8 devices. Overall, I though the app was pretty decent, and if the scrolling problem could be resolved, I’d say we’ll have a great app on our hands.
