    No longer able to validate a session. ———— Fixed although I don’t see a new version. In any case sessions can now be validated and it is working normally. I’m happy!

    Works pretty well once you understand its quirks. A bit annoying to have to pair every time. Still give some good info but not a lot of depth. Wouldnt pay more than 50$ for the Bluetooth module and app over a standard racquet.
  • Crashing Apr 2, 2018

    Update 4/2/18. Well it finally works!! Decided to try and open the app after months of it not working and it worked! Was able to sync and didn’t crash. Hopefully they finally solved the issues. Thanks babolat Even after June 21 update still crashing every time I try and log in. Update Well can't even open the app cause it crashes. I deleted and started from scratch and everytime u try and log it it shuts down. Because this app wasn't working I tried to download the Mac app to at least be able to upload data via USB and it has not been updated since 2013 and the coding won't even let it open on any of my mac computers. So I'm stuck with my new racquet and zero way to upload or update the racquet. Another update7/21. Please tell us what's going on. I bought a new racquet months ago and it worked once before the latest update and now the app still just shuts down. There is no way to upload the info via computer either cause u put all your eggs in one basket with the app that's an epic fail. I've never seen an app go this long without a team fixing it. Ridiculous! At least add computer website support again. Another update 9/2. They just released a new version finally and..........it crashes as soon as I try and log in! Still unusable

  • The app has improved, but still needs a few more improvements Aug 19, 2017

    Overall the app is good, but there are a few bugs. I would like to be able to see the meta data on the shots to analyze my game further.
  • Great app when working Sep 21, 2017

    Great rackets and the tech is useful when it works. New iOS is creating an issue with app handling. It isn’t crashing, but app goes into background mode when you try to go to activity. Issue is how Apple is handling apps in the new release. This should have been handled in QA running the new os. Seems a battle that continues as non tech companies get into connected world. No offense to Babolat, but seriously this isn’t that hard to fix.

    This is really ridiculous. The original version of the app was way, way better. This social focus is a big mistake. The app is now buggy and the stats are really not that interesting. How can such a big feature can become such a failure? Really disappointed.

  • Great concept, low standards Dec 23, 2018

    By joey harrison
    Babolat must bring back some essential elements from the POP app that uses PIQ score, trend analysis, forehand and backhand racquet speed, and quite frankly a better format for frequent users. I used the POP app with a PIQ robot for a year to track my stats and loved it so much I even bought one for my wife. I assumed that the expensive babolat Play series racquets would have the same standards and depth of shot analysis and stat tracking, actually I assumed it would be better. Instead, the most useful feature of this app is the impact location feature. I still can see how many of each shot I have hit but why can’t this technology give me the racquet speed on forehands and backhands anymore? And that trending feature in the POP app was helpful. It seems like they really put no effort into making an app that can make you feel like the sensors in that racquet are worth much. What it does tell you is simple stuff, also was hoping for a better social media platform for tennis players to be built in but I have heard nothing but bad news about that too. Aside from the obvious failures in the software department, this is a very good racquet and I’m playing better than ever with it. Much better than my 2018 pure drive. I recommend it, but get it used for like $120 like I did on eBay and maybe demo some similar racquets before you get this thinking the stats will help you as much as the actual racquet

    Sign up works until I get to City. No way to input a value. Disgraceful because this is so basic.
  • Dumbest app in the App Store Jul 8, 2018

    By appdecentuser321
    The product manager for this app should be fired. Period. Babolat used to have a great product - desktop and app which made Play racquet a worthwhile investment. Pulse, trends, and all useful features have been trashed. For some reason, they are still selling the racquet for 100$ more than a normal racquet but have no software to back it up. This app is such a joke that I wont even bother to write a detailed review - will take me pages to fit in all the complaints. E.g., They give some “points” for validating sessions and no clue as to what to do with those points. Do I get some Babolat gear if I collect points? You cant edit a session if you make an entry mistake. There are technical bugs throughout the app but ZERO updates have been made in past 6 months. Babolat - please pay some qualified developers to rebuild this app. Its only a month’s worth of work to fix it at best - some bugs are so obvious (you have to rotate your ipad and then go back two operations to get an “ok” button!). If not, please refund my 100$ premium for the hardware. I wonder why the old app and desktop product cannot just be brought back. Also, I have lost all my data since they “upgraded” this app.

  • Works Great Jun 25, 2015

    By GlenK
    I'm surprised to read all these bad ratings. I just got this Babolat Play racquet last week and downloaded the app. So far it has worked perfectly, exactly as advertised. Once loaded in the app all the data appears on my Mac and can be analyzed there or in the app. Did have to make sure I validated the sessions on my phone.

    Babolat: thank you. I am now a tennis player. I can see my progress, hold accountability, debrief with myself, I am pushing myself to reach the next levels. I know have created the habit of playing tennis. A few glitches and issues: yes. But the benefits out way them.

  • deafening silence Dec 7, 2017

    By frenchy-Chris
    After announcing that there were some glitches in their new release, Babolat is completely ignoring its fans. Yes I know that May , June July and August are vacation months in France, but ignoring its clients this way is a shame. Software 101 rule. If you break something, have a back-out plan. Why don't you make the old app available in the Apple Store. At least I could switch from my Prince racquet back to Babolat ********** update ******* The app now works most of the time. Still losing about one out of 4 sessions due to crashes. What is annoying in the new version is that you have to login all the time. This is not a banking application. Make the login persistent.

  • Terrible App Sep 25, 2015

    By Real Bob Loblaw
    There is so much this app could do, but doesn’t. It seems like Babolat paid for the cheapest developers they could get and didn’t care about what tennis players would want to know. It crashes regularly and fails to connect with the racquet at least 30% of the time. It could be so much better and I hope they come out with an overhaul soon. For now, I don’t even turn it on most of the time.
