College Basketball Play by Play Gaps 1/5
Delays in play by play and completely missing plays. Has been going on now for approximately one week. It’s not just non-ESPN games. It’s happening for the televised ESPN games as well.
Worst app for videos ever 1/5
Half of the time when I click my notifications to watch a video all I get is sound. Takes forever to load with great WiFi and on LTE. I’m not sure what changed cause the app used to be solid. Very unstable now.
Get RID of the video feed on the SCORES tab! 1/5
Another update and the the annoying video feed is still HOGGING up space at the top of the scores tab. GET IT OFF THE SCORES TAB already. It has no place there. It wastes space for what the tab is supposed to be for... SCORES. Put it on its own tab. They just continue to bury their heads in the sand and ignore their user base.
Once was great Now is lost 1/5
By Chris Scanlan
Basically unusable in the current form
All Rubgy scores? 3/5
I don’t understand why everything is titled rugby.
Remember when 1/5
I remember when ESPN reported sports
From Very Good to Unusable! 1/5
This app was a very good way to keep up with my favorite sports. The review was from 2013. The updates of the last year have rendered the app unusable. It crashes constantly and if and when it loads it sometimes takes a whole minute to load. Do not know what happened. It works well on my iPad, but my iPhone is the go to device that I use most of the time. Apple should ban it for the iPhone until fixed.
Worst App on my phone 1/5
By The balls19
Slooooooooooooow loading up, clunky, and crashes frequently. Used to be great, but your garbage caused me to discover The Score app, so thank you for that.
Terrible!!! Find another sports app! 1/5
This used to be the best sports app out there and it has become unusable with the latest release. I wish they would do something pretty quickly to remedy this or it’s going in the trash! I wish I could give it negative stars, that’s how bad it has become. It does things like give sports alerts only to have the app crash on you when clicking through those alerts. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg.
Please figure this out and bring my favorite app back from the dead!
Had a problem and text chat help session fixed it! 5/5
Play by play on games shows no scoring. What happened to app?
Used to work great.... 1/5
But the latest updates have ruined it. This app constantly crashes and it's barely usable.
Wait... wait... wait... crash. 2/5
In my entire history with the iPhone, I’ve never had a more reliably-unreliable app than the ESPN app.
Opening it by clicking the icon usually means a 20+ second wait time until I can start seeing scores. I’ve literally opened this app to follow the end of a game and found it over when the app has finally booted.
But WAY worse is the notifications. Swiping on one generally leads to a 20+ second wait that lands me back at the home screen. Inexcusable.
Incredibly slow 1/5
Possibly the slowest app in the App Store. The app itself would be fine if it didn’t take forever to open and do anything even on an iPhone X. I’ve never rated an app, but felt it necessary due to how terrible this app is to use
This app is ridiculously slow and constantly freezes. It is bloated. Needs to go on a diet.
Click a push notification and it just takes you to the home screen of the app. Videos can’t be put into landscape mode unless you turn off rotation lock on your phone. Bunch of shotty things like that.
Once great, now slow and buggy 2/5
By No.1 RestaurantFan
I've used the ESPN app for years. For a long time it was great, but in the past 6 months something has happened. It's so slow and buggy that it's almost unusable. It constantly freezes and needs to be restarted.
ESPN, please help!
Lower ranked teams get bad coverage 2/5
I would request that if you cannot give actual play-by-play coverage of games and events to not offer that as a service/tab within your app/that event. Many times the play-by-play tab will skip multiple minutes of gameplay and not even put in who scored. :/
The entire ESPN ecosystem is broken so why not this crappy app. You must let the molasses app load each incremental item. For if not!? You’ll click on every single ad.
This app has become click bait.
Poor. Need to be able to rate apps with ZERO stars.
BLOCKED OUT 1/5
All I want to do is watch these games offered on ESPN 3 and it tells me they’re blocked out in my area. It’s the only place it’s offered. Fix this issue
No longer works. 1/5
Won’t even open.
What’s happened? 1/5
Was my go-to app. Updated iOS and the app and now all I get is a white screen and the app shuts down.
Play by play 1/5
What's going on with recent basketball play by play not showing scoring plays??
Unethical Company 1/5
By Concerned Sports Fan
Sensationalized and opportunistic reporting are ESPNs new forte. They primarily target schools who decided to steer clear of their sub-par network by signing contracts with other sports media outlets. ESPNs journalists and anchors have ulterior motives and thus this app is corrupt with false, inaccurate, and emotionally charged information.
Please make it where we can favorite our favorite NCAA Baseball teams!!!!!!! 3/5
Overall, the app isn’t bad. But there’s an issue when you can favorite your individual ncaa women’s basketball team, but not your favorite ncaa baseball team ⚾️(no offense to women’s basketball ball). Would really like to see this option available in the near future! There’s more than enough college baseball fans out there, for it not to be available...
App lags, even on the iPhone X 4/5
I love the app to follow every sports but add some features that the score and bleacher report app has like follow fav players news with notifications and add a section with posts from twitter and Instagram of teams and players.
But most important fix lag app is not smooth
Can't believe they won't fix the crashing 1/5
For years now this app crashes at least twice before opening. This app has consistently had problems as long as its existed without proper updates
College Baseball 4/5
By Video Game Lord
This app is great I’ve had it for a few days now and I love it but the one thing I wish I could do that would make it 5 stars is if I could favorite college baseball teams. I love baseball and I have my MLB team favorited and the sport too but there are colleges that I want to watch play baseball but it takes so long since I have to go to watch and scroll till I find my games. Please add favoriting of college baseball teams soon.
Roster adds 2/5
This app is very informative for scores and who is playing at the time. I gave it 2 stars because the pre game information is horrendous. You have little to no idea who is playing in these games. If I’m looking up a game I want to know who is playing in it. I’m a huge ESPN guy but might start looking elsewhere if the coverage of the games doesn’t get better
Andrew Trimarchi’s review 5/5
I love this sooo much I don’t think I would be able to live with out this app
By Two Mz
App hasn’t worked since last update. All I see is a white screen while it’s trying to load and then it crashes.
By Jim Rollston
The app has become useless, it is so slow now, and always crashes. Has been for months, regardless of connection speed.
Latest release has made this app unusable. Drastically slow response time and delays in the app. If you luckily haven’t update...DON’T!!
Hot garbage 1/5
The developers of this app are comical jokes....you get a notification, press it, 5 min later it doesn’t take you to the notification but the home page.
update. Still a one star. Need a new sports app 1/5
By Anthony (life is good)
I can barely load ESPN after one of the recent updates. It went from one of my most used apps to where I’m searching for my sports elsewhere. What happened ESPN? Is it Disney’s fault? 2/15 I am officially shopping for a new sports app. What happened ESPN. I’m getting more of my sports on Twitter from my favorite teams.
Slow & Unreliable 2/5
I’ve stopped using the ESPN app as my primary sports news and scores update app. It is verrrry ssssloww to open. The notifications do not link to the actual news update or the scores most of the time. It’s not easy to find the news or reports you’re looking for. I do watch live sports on ESPN Live with my cable subscription. I use others apps that are faster and easier to quickly get the sports information you need such as Score. Unfortunately ESPN has gotten less usable and less user friendly over time. Btw, I have an iPhone 8 and use the latest iOS.
Unstoppable Ads? 1/5
Every once in a while ads (usually the “you won an iPad” scam) render the app unusable such as happened to me just now. As soon as I go to a news item I am taken to an ad, and as soon as I exit and navigate back to the page the ad appears again.
Fix your god awful app. Nothing but crashing and slow performance. Disgusting.
No TWC/Spectrem 1/5
I have always used the ESPN app to watch ESPN on my phone but not that they don’t have my tv provider anymore I am frustrated and upset and might delete the app if it is not solved sooner than later
Ruined / constantly freezes/crashes 1/5
Title speaks for itself. They had finally fixed this terrible app and it worked well for a while too.
So slow.... 1/5
App takes forever to load after a button press (on a brand new iPhone 8 with WiFi). Screens will regularly take 3-5 seconds to paint after button press. I used to think it didn’t even register my finger pressing something and would tap again only to have it paint painfully slowly.
Get your developers to fix the speeds. This is unsatisfactory!
I love the content ESPN puts out but often, when I get a notification of a story I like I’ll tap it and it will only take me to the main screen of the app and I can not even find the article that brought me there because there are so many other things going on.
What Happened?! 1/5
This app used to be smooth, fast, and reliable. Now it is none of those. Crashes all the time, when it loads - which is rare.
Notifications and stats 2/5
First off the notifications, while they do send out less than before. I still get updates and headlines for sports I don’t follow. The stats aren’t updated for nhl they send you to the website for the gamecast. Also a games played column is necessary for nhl and any other sports that are points based for rankings.
Crash happy 1/5
I never complain about apps, but since I’ve been using this for 8 years I have to review. App won’t load, won’t start, won’t load my teams. Everything is updated and still nothing. Last version was bad, this is worse. Do not install
Crashes every use 1/5
New version is completely useless 1/5
Haven’t been able to open the app since their last update. I still get push notifications, but the app hasn’t loaded in over a month. Thanks for sending all those “Instant Awesome” notifications for clips I’ll never get to see.
Can’t be accessed outside US? 1/5
Catch a star.
Terribly slow 1/5
The experience is so dominated by lags and non responsiveness that I just don’t bother opening it anymore.
Huge step backward 1/5
What did you do to this app? It is so slow to load and buggy when it does. Crashes often too. Fire your dev leads and start a new branch of code from about six months ago. What a joke for a supposed world-leading brand.
