30 second ads on all videos. Inexcusable. Do not watch.
Once enjoyable app now CRASHES 70% of time 1/5
The ESPN app worked well for me until a few weeks ago. Now, it crashes so often it has become unreliable and irritating! PLEASE fix this!!!
App crashes every time I open it 2/5
The app crashes every time I open it and when I finally get it open without crashing, it crashes within a minute of having it open. I've had this app as long as I can remember and it might be time to make a switch to the bleacher report app or something else.
Every Time I open now, it crashes within seconds of opening. So frustrating.
Auto Video Play Terrible 1/5
Takes up too much data by automatically playing videos. I hate videos anyway I just want the articles
Crashes to much 1/5
Crashes every 5 seconds after most recent update
New ESPN format 3/5
The highlight that turns on as soon as I enter the app is using up data. It has no easy way to turn it off. Please correct this.
Gone from great to awful! 1/5
The ESPN app was a "go to" app for me however the last couple of updates have rendered it useless. More often than not the app does not load or it if it does, it does so very slowly.
An unstable mess 1/5
I've never used an app that crashes as much as this one does. Most nothing works, poorly designed. I use the website.
5 stars when it works... 3/5
...but it crashes SOOOOO often.
By Wizard EBi
The app tries to combine three previous apps into one. The radio, watch, and original espn app. It takes a lot of data to run this app and IT CRASHES CONSTANTLY. Takes me three times to just open it up. it used to be great but now it shuts down so often and struggles to stream that I've looked for other means to find my podcasts and news. Really disappointed in it now. Loved it before.
Always crashing 2/5
I find myself more and more using my ESPN bookmark to go to the website than the app. I would guess that, at minimum, 75% of the time that I attempt to open a story from a notification, the app crashes. It then will continue to crash until I completely kill the app and restart it. Incredibly annoying.
Constantly crashes 3/5
If you can get it to open it works pretty good. It takes a good 3+ attempts to open the app while it crashes before it becomes usable.
Quite possibly the worst app ever developed.
Playback inconsistent 2/5
When I receive a notification for a video highlight, the video never plays. I only get the loading circle. It's frustrating!
Crash champion 2/5
I've had multiple apps on my iPhone throughout its lifetime but nothing crashes more than this app. I don't know what's wrong with it, it's always updated as well as my iPhone but it continues to crash when I try to open it, when I'm midway through an article, when trying to load a video. This app is completely unreliable which is disappointing because of all the features it offers such as live broadcasts and podcasts. Needs major improvements until then I will have to find something else that actually works!
Terrible video 1/5
This update added a video to the home screen that takes half the page and makes the app slow..it's usually a highlight or interview that's irrelevant. Will be using and recommend Fox Sports App until/if the video feature goes away
Crash, Crash, Crash! 1/5
Used to be great. Now, it crashes every time.
Deleted due to Autoplay 1/5
I hate autoplay. It ensures that a website or app becomes "dead to me".
Bring back the simple version! 1/5
Used to check this app several times a day but it's now unusable with all of the news in one lonnnng feed and too many videos. Ugh.
Great app when it works! 1/5
By porkue no?
I love ESPN. Have done so for years. But recently the app has been crashing almost every time i open it! This should have been fixed a long time ago. Check your reviews Disney!
Listen section is garbage 1/5
Listen section is just plain terrible.
App crashes 2/5
App crashes about 50% of the time for me. I've even deleted the app and redownloaded it and it still continues to crash.
Crashes frequently 1/5
By Lim ninja
Since last update app crashes constantly.
ESPN World Leader in App Crashes 1/5
I'll keep this short and simple. ESPN's app crashes more than any other app I have ever used, no seriously. It's 2017, get ur sh*t together ESPN.
Horrible update 1/5
No, I don't want you to feed me internal ads in the form of a giant video header at all times... horrible update
Can't even use the app due to crashing 1/5
The app crashes so much I can't even open it currently. I would give a more in depth review if I could use it, but that's all I can even say for now.
Crashes... a lot 1/5
Literally every time you open this app it will find a way to crash. It's awful.
New video on homescreen 5/5
Crash city 1/5
An absolutely fantastic application, when it works. Unfortunately the app crashes almost continuously making it completely unusable. A waste of space on my phone.
Formerly great app now broken...unusable. 1/5
It now longer works consistently.
The video that try's to load at start up crashes the app 90% of the time.
Slow and too many videos 2/5
I just want to check the score and get up to date on news, trades. Instead every time I open the app I have to wait for videos of stuff I don't care about to load, then wade through a million filler articles before getting to actual news and scores.
Crashes every time I open it since the latest update. EVERY TIME.
Crashes almost every time I open the app
Hate new video that starts up when u try to open. Slowwwwww. Once again espn making bad decisions if I want to watch a video I will click on link. Just deleted app!!
Bring back radio rewind function!!! 2/5
Up until a year or more ago, the original/previous "ESPN Radio" app allowed you to tune into a live broadcast and rewind the show up to an hour, so you could catch at least the previous hour's-worth of the show if you missed it live. They killed that feature in the final update to the ESPN Radio app, which infuriated users. And now with this all-encompassing-one-stop-shopping ESPN app, you would think they could at least restore that ability to replay up to an hour of live shows. I have emailed ESPN support directly, and nobody wants to address the "WHY" as to why this feature no longer exists.
Furthermore, the current app teases you by featuring twin 15-second rewind and fast-forward buttons on either side of the play/pause button. What the heck are those for, when they are always greyed out? Why put them there if you will not allow replay function. C'mon man!!
I love the ESPN interface 5/5
The new ESPN layout and interface is amazing. I love how when I open up the app and sport videos play
Not as good as other sports apps 2/5
App crashes constantly when trying to access videos from a notification. And when it doesn't crash, the video loads and loads but never actually plays. This is not what you would expect from a company like this.
Crashes, typical ESPN garbage 1/5
Crashes every single time I open it. This has been going on for a year and they still haven't fixed it. This does not compete with better sports apps like Bleacher Report. I only use it for the local podcasts.
Podcast feature 1/5
The podcast feature has turned to crap. I would listen to them everyday. Now the only way to listen to anything is if the app is open and on the podcast. Worthless. Fix it or I'll have to use another podcast app.
Wrong Podcast - really? 2/5
The Feb 21 edition of PTI plays Around the Horn. Similar thing happened to me last week. Step it up!!
Where did my alerts go? 2/5
Had to choose my favorite teams again with the last update. Now I don't get alerts anymore even though they're set up the same as before.
Update: Still getting 2 stars. Only saving grace of this app is the ability to stream the Dan Le Batard Show. App crashes all the time when I try to open it. Videos play on their now, inexplicably. At least the alerts started working again.
Last update is bad 1/5
Crashes like crazy since the last update.
Loved it that one time it didn't crash 1/5
It crashes almost every time, usually within seconds of opening it.
Monstrosity get rid of auto videos holy crap 1/5
By dan at pitt
Why would you ever think this was a good idea? Simple app with lines scores and schedules only please why ruin it
Crash Paradise... 1/5
By BIGG REGGG
This app crashes like there's no tomorrow... Get it together ESPN, please!
Crashes constantly 1/5
By Alex (drummer of the year 2009)
I've used this app for a while with little to no problems but ever since the news update it crashes all the time. To open the app I literally have to let it crash three consecutive times and then I can use it on the 4th opening. Watch maybe three vids and then let it crash. Thank goodness I have yahoo sports app to keep me updated
The best 5/5
This thing does everything you need to know about the games you want to watch
An unstable wreck 1/5
They app crashes 9 out of 10 times when I just try to open it. Literally unusable
