Call Of Duty: Elite App Hits Android Market, Still Has A Lot Of Work To Make It Useable

The biggest video game franchise in the world, Call of Duty was looking to expand itself to the web and mobile with the release of its supplemental service Call of Duty: Elite. They said that there would be a mobile side of the service that keeps track of your kills and overall stats in the game and it has finally hit the Android Market, but is not doing too well out of the gate. Screenshots of the application’s flaws can only describe what it needs to fix.

Users are reporting many log-in problems and saying that emails are invalid when they should work. The biggest problem though, is that once you get into the actual app, as I did on my Galaxy Nexus, the application does not scale to fit the screen. Maybe this is an Ice Cream Sandwich problem more than the phone but nevertheless, after the botched launch of Elite itself this is not welcome news. Other than the aforementioned problems, the app works pretty well. It allows you to track your stats and challenges and even allows you to change your custom layouts on the fly and send them to the game. If only it will get updated, it will be a fantastic start to a good application.

Video games like this could potentially have a huge presence in the mobile area but launches like this are not helping their cause. It remains to be seen how Activision will update the app but we hope that it’s sooner than later.

    The app makes it a lot easier to show fellow gamers your stats while not playing, but I have issues sending class changes to the game. Perhaps this will be fixed with later updates.

    Dunno, it’s working A-OK for me although I agree with the screen size. There’s like 3/4″ black space on the bottom of my DX, but I thought it was because I have an ad blocker. Running firstEncounter ICS Beta 3.

    I was able to sign in just fine, and the app loads my stats way faster than their website.

    Really MW3 still has a lot of work to do before it’s usable lol..

    Sorry, I just had when gamers use mod sticks and cheat cuz they aren’t good enough to play the real way.

    Besides, I’m still too wrapped up in Arkham City and Uncharted to think about MW3 right now

    And Elite’s subscription is stupid, it should be a flat fee but of course it’s not

      lol i’m the exact opposite. I’m too wrapped up in MW3 that i’ve neglected to play Uncharted 3, Skyrim and Assassin’s Creed Revelations. All three still waiting to be played. I’m on the second Prestige level 12.

      The Elite site is free. The subscription just allows you to view certain videos on the Elite site and you can get all the DLC for free.

    This app is so Web 1.0. I’m surprised it’s not using stolen animated GIFs.

    the cheap thing is it’s not even an app its just a browser that loads their mobile version. They should just make a mobile version that i can go to on my browser of choice. It even says do you want the browser to remember your password

    Not impressed.  Slow, buggy, and the back button doesn’t seem to do anything.  I can’t imagine my Bionic should have trouble running this.  Only reason I have Elite though, is I spend the same money on DLC anyway, so I minus-well get them early.  App is about as good as the web interface: Semi-useless.

      So do all the hackers that cheat on the game going to hack the app as well to ruin the experience again for me?

      OG Droid.. Incredible?

      What is this I don’t even..

      • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=739332592 Joe Bertolino

        lol – yeah. The original Incredible

        • MicTem

          i dont think the OG works for the incredible….just saying

          • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=30814337 Brian Rokosz

            I think it does…people who bought the Incredible on or just after release date managed to get the kick ass beginnings of AMOLED, before the factory couldn’t keep up with manufacturing the screens and HTC switched to LCD displays…so if he (like I do) truly does have the HTC Incredible via April/May 2010 then he has the OG.

    It’s not an ICS problem, it’s because the resolution is higher than the android phones of last year they must have had in mind. Same problem on my Rezound (1280×720) on gingerbread.

    This thing is flat out pathetic. It matches the rest of Elite perfectly.

  • NEXUSSSSSS

    This was clearly not made for 4.0 at all. Its a iOS CLONE in every sense

  • Twitter: AlwaysAndroid

    Looks like they release their mobile apps in the same fashion as their games: unpolished and full of bugs. It’s seriously like they don’t even use their products before they release them.
