Madden 20: How To Utilize The Mobile Companion App

All the ways you can use the Madden companion app to manage your team, find events, and get cool stuff.

Madden NFL 20 is here and with that comes a brand new app for gamers on the go. The Madden NFL 20 companion app helps you stay connected to your game wherever you may be at any given time. The app looks to allow players control of certain aspects of their game without being limited to just their console of choice. It's a neat feature in the Madden franchise, but is it completely necessary for your overall game experience? Let's find out.

What Does The Madden Companion App Do?

The Madden NFL 20 companion app allows control of certain aspects of your game from anywhere you may be located. It allows for a more in depth experience to your typical Madden game, but won't negatively impact those who choose not to utilize its features. You can check on your franchise team quickly, manage your ultimate team auctions, access Madden Messenger, and other cool features.

You can stay up to date on all the hints and strategies to help you grow in the game, straight from the pros. You van also learn about feature updates and upcoming competitive events from the app. If you sign up with Madden rewards you can get packs, coins and other prizes throughout Madden.

Your franchise team is with you anywhere you may be. Many features are available to you and your franchise through the app. You can set game status, export league data from third party sites that are supported, and set the schedule of your league. This will help you get a leg up on the competition as you aren't tethered to your physical game to access these features.

In what is probably the coolest feature, you can access your Madden NFL 20 Ultimate Team directly from the app allowing you access on the go so you never miss important moments to strengthen your team. Auctions are an integral part of the Ultimate Team experience and you have the chance to participate and connect with the auction house at anytime. This allows you to bid on items, complete access to your binder, and even allows you to post your own items for auctions.

Do You Have To Use It?

The best part of the Madden NFL 20 companion app is that it isn't necessary to get a full game experience. You won't be required to log into the app while playing the game and you won't get penalized for not using the app. What the companion app does is provide an even more in depth experience to the game. Being a casual to the Madden franchise since its early years, I don't see myself using the app anytime in the future, but it is there for those who want it. It won't negatively affect your experience if you don't utilize the app.

It's a new year which means a new Madden. Companion apps are continuing to be implemented in games and it seems that they will continue to be included going forward. The Madden NFL 20 companion app isn't necessary for you to enjoy the full Madden experience. Players can get just as much satisfaction out of playing the game normally as the hardcore fan base that uses every possible feature in hopes of having a leg up on the competition. While you obviously can't play the actual game from the app, you can access your Ultimate Team and franchise from wherever you may be, and that's pretty cool.
