NFL Mobile for Verizon Updated for Android 4.0 Support; You May Still Experience Issues Launching It


Well isn’t this just peachy? We’re less than a week away from the 2011-2012 NFL playoffs and Verizon has finally updated their NFL Mobile application for those on Android 4.0 and, by extension, the Galaxy Nexus. There’s a wee bit of a problem, though.

Upon downloading some people are still met with that pesky message that the application is not compatible with their device. I, too, was met with this error message upon two tries. I uninstalled and reinstalled the application and all was well, as evidenced by the screenshot you see above of it running on my Nexus.

We’re not sure what exactly is going on but you can try to force stop and clear its data/cache or reinstall the application to see if it’ll work for you. Hopefully Verizon provides a quick fix so that the error message won’t pop up those few times after downloading. Find it in the Android market and try for yourself. [Thanks Desmond!]

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  3. I’ve uninstalled both it and verizon login multiple times and it simply will not work period on my Galaxy Nex.

    I don’t know if Verizon could have screwed up this launch any more than they did.

    1. didn’t you see how they handled the galaxy nexus launch? miserable.

  4. Finally works for me! It didn’t yesterday. Does any one else’s capacitive buttons remain on when watching nfl network live on full screen? Kind of a bummer you cant use the whole screen.

  5. worked without issues on my nexus

  6. Did a ‘Force Stop” and now all is well.

  7. It didn’t work for me until I force stopped it and restarted.  Thanks, Phandroid!

    P.S.  Looks like the author’s GNex has the same awesome voice signal reception that mine does at work.

    1. Well I live in a generally bad area for all carriers :) I get great signal and speeds when I leave my home.

  8. Up and running. Just in time for the playoffs.

  9. Its working for me now, first try after update…
