Horrible now 1/5
I’m with the rest of you. That app stinks now. It crashes the 1st time i try to open it. Then is slow as hell opening up. I don’t know what they did in the last couple of updates. But bring it back to what it was 😣
This App Right Here is WORTHLESS 1/5
This used to be the best app out there. I guess the app is just taking the same approach as they are using with on air personalities... they used to be good and it’s gone downhill lately
App Support 5/5
Too Many Notifications Other Than That It’s An Good App
Crashing all of the time and slow 1/5
By Adam meier
Every time I open the app it crashes and is very slow
It would be better if we didn’t have to scroll through all the 50 zillion soccer league scores
Use to be Great 1/5
This app use to be great and where I found my up to the minute sports information. Now I can’t read an article or open a push notification without the app crashing. I will be switching permanently to Bleacher Report for my news
Crashes and is sooo slow 1/5
The rare times the app doesn’t crash, it is so painfully slow. Whatever information you were looking for can be googled 10x faster than this app.
Worst update ever 1/5
To get the most recent updates you need to close the app and reset it. If you don’t do that you get a blank white screen. Shame espn is the only way to get most sports news or live events. This app is the worst
Needs major overhaul 1/5
This app used to be my go to app for everything sports related. Now it seems to take forever to load when opening and often freezes. Go back to the simple minded thought process with the app. There’s no need to over load it with videos and ads that crash the app. I’m not impressed at all with these changes.
Unbelievably ewww 1/5
By Mersad S.
Your new commercial with a guy sitting on the bench with the app next to it makes me wanna puke.
The guy on the bench does not look like a athlete at all, and he is in love with an app because he probably can’t find a girlfriend.
Also the commercial makes me feel like it’s targeting the wrong crowd, with the way that guy is talking.
Unreal and whoever came up with this idea is probably someone who never played sports nor had a social life.
Learn what a “game recap” actually consists of 1/5
The “game recap” is literally one play out of a whole game that had nothing to do with the outcome. I’m sick of trying to see an actual recap from a big game and all they show is a 5 second fast break layup. And your coverage of athletes is terrible..used to be if a player worked hard and played well they were covered by espn. Now espn tries to dictate whose popular. The fact that lavar ball gets air time and coverage from espn says enough about what you all have become. Stuart Scott would be ashamed and I doubt he’d sell out the way the rest of you have.
Frustrated please listen ESPN! 1/5
Sorry but I agree with all the comments. Please ESPN listen to your customers! Fix the darn app so it will work!!!
FIX THE APP 1/5
The app constantly crashes and I can never use it when I want to. If I could give this zero stars I absolutely would
From first to last 1/5
This app has been rendered useless with some of the latest updates. Takes forever to load anything and it is completely un-responsive. Will search for an alternative app to get my sports updates and news from. Hopefully the ESPN app team is able to fix it sooner or later, but it has been too long and just causes more headaches each time I try to use it. The app used to be fine. As an app dev professional, this app makes me sad...
Gotten worse. Slow as molasses. Crashes. 1/5
Takes an age to load and change pages. Crashes most the time. Worthless.
Update 12/17. Whatever update happened has made the app slower than anything even on iPhone 7 Plus. Frustrating and useless. Shame.
Frustrating. Good if you can stand repeating finding stuff you care about every single time. Really really awful app design by any standard.
The favorites is only good for teams not competitions. Have to dig out every single time.
Can't default start page to sports/competitions/teams I only care about.
The app got stuck in some loop and made me miss the last 4 min of a close game. It kept replaying commercials then switching to some other program. Just terrible
The worst 1/5
This used to be my go to for sports updates new pretty much anything sports! Now they just cover trash! The app runs horribly slow it’s like they don’t put out new stories or half the time they aren’t even covering sports. It’s amazing not only is their App bad the content they put on it is horrible who is running this thing! They clearly fired all the wrong people when they let all those people go at espn! They have some of the absolute worst sports articles or coverage of what went on in games or event that occurred. Plus now all they want to do is follow Lavar ball and his 2 kids they aren’t even in America playing in some nothing league overseas they get more coverage then the oldest brother who actually plays for the lakers it’s pathetic! What are you doing over there at espn your app is terrible and your sports reporting is even worse it’s quite the shame espn used to be the most reliable source for any sports info there was no reason to look anywhere or watch anything else now I’m looking for any app remotely decent to delete the espn app I’m done with espn and their garbage app!
Boo 👎 1/5
Is there an ESPN app we can use on the iPhone 6? Because whatever the crap this mess is, won't open on my phone anymore.
App crashes constantly 1/5
By Need to fix public radio app
Something is wrong this was a very stable app and now it crashes constantly. Fix whatever you changed!
Had a problem and text chat help session fixed it! 5/5
Terrible app 1/5
Slow to load and when it does it crashes.
Won’t even open anymore 1/5
When I try to open it, it shows a white screen for a few seconds, then crashes. I’m just about ready to delete this.
APP NOT WORKING!!! 1/5
Hasn’t been working for 2 weeks.
Worst. Update. Ever. 1/5
By No Middle Initial
Slower than ever.
App is unusable with the latest updates.
Login too often 1/5
This app makes me log into my service provider almost every time I open it. Support from espn is worthless. They couldn’t even figure out (after I told them) that I was having problems with the iPhone app. They then stopped providing support because, though they were the ones that couldn’t even listen to find out what product they were supposed to be supporting, I was the one being unprofessional for expressing myself in this frustrated tone. Worthless app from an increasingly worthless brand.
It’s like a Fat guy wearing a sweater in August 1/5
By Jeffe Guapo
There are certain things in life that just don’t work out like they were planned. A speedy trip to the DMV, a quiet house remodel while the baby sleeps, a fat guy trying to rock a wool sweater to an August wedding in Savannah and now, the ESPN app.
I know you had to layoff a lot of employees but please rehire the development team. No one enjoys a slow and unresponsive UX while searching for scores.
The recent update now regularly causes freezes. 1/5
How difficult is it to not fokr up an app?
No Text Zoom 1/5
The text in the articles cannot be zoomed in. Very disappointing.
Randomly stops playing the radio. When you try to resume so you don’t miss what’s going on, it instead plays one million ads in a row while you’re missing what’s happening.
From Great to Unusable 1/5
This was always the go-to app for sports scores, but after the last few iOS updates, it’s practically unusable.
The app always crashes immediately after launching it the first three times. The fourth attempt is usually successful, but only after about 30 seconds of load time — whether using wifi or not. This seems to be related to the video that always loads at the top. Make the video optional! If I want to watch it, I’ll choose to load it at that time. Horrible.
Lastly, the banner of headlines to articles related to your favorite sports teams, displayed near the top of the main screen, are not links to the actual articles. You can’t click on them, so what’s the point? Completely useless!
Slow with bugs and crashes 1/5
I figured I just needed a new phone, but it turns out this app is just really slow and broken.
Crashes constantly 1/5
I use the app to listen to The Lebatard Show live and I can not put the app in the background or lock my phone to save battery or it will crash within a minute. Fix your stuff or pay your programmers enough that they actually care about their work.
Current version unusable 1/5
By The Honks
The current version iOS 11 is totally unusable. Peters take 30 seconds to a minute to load. Streaming content results in pauses in action constantly.
Use to be the best... now crashes every time! 1/5
I hope they get this fixed, just crashes.
Unusable with the updates. Whether its apple or espn or both, just do yourself a favor and get the bleacher report app
Complete trash 1/5
Always freezes and it's difficult to view stats
Constantly crashing and drains battery 1/5
The app constantly crashes and drains my battery so fast. It’s a shame Espn can’t hire qualified developers to build reliable tech. Their streaming service on the amazon fire stick is also atrocious; its streaming service constantly buffers. Bottom line its frustrating espn controls the majority of sports content and forces users to use it because there arent many options. The least they could do is build reliable tech. Its 2018 for crying out loud.
Too Slow 1/5
I agree with the review above. I’ve found it especially unusable when following multiple games for fantasy sports purposes. I’ve been using Yahoo instead because it keeps up when I jump from game to game. I always preferred the ESPN app for this because the content was better, but unfortunately now it is too slow.
Favorita section 4/5
All the app is good, but from some time ago I haven’t been able to use the favorites section. It just doesn’t load. It says theres an error.
Worthless Notifications 1/5
Unbelievably frustrating to get notifications on articles but then not being able to find them once you open the app. I don’t know why there is a search feature because nothing is ever found.
Crashes and burns 1/5
The only thing this app does for me is provide headlines and scores through notifications. I cannot open the notifications or the app itself. It will attempt to load for 10 seconds and then close. I don’t know where things went wrong but I don’t like it. If you are going to be the worldwide leader in sports then get your app functioning.
What’s up with all the commercials and advertising? 1/5
They have a commercial ad for a 30 second video. That alone deserves a failing grade.
Slow and unable to select athlete’s names anymore 1/5
App has always been slow and now it’s worse. Also can’t click on an athlete’s name when I’m in box scores.
By Ben Burnham
It used to be a good app but it just won’t stop crashing
App is too slow to use 1/5
This app could be nice, but it is too slow to use. Takes 20 seconds to open to home screen and several seconds each time you change screens.
Absolutely not a fan 1/5
Ok I thought this would be easy but you gotta do all that sign up crap and the thing that makes me rage is that you have to PAY to see some games this app is absolutely ruined I get most apps are sign ups but like my gosh if you have xfinity stream I feel it should hook right up to that but no this is 100% a 1 star
Slow / can’t open sometimes 1/5
By Steve Hilfiger
Needs to update for iOS 11 !!!!!!
Can’t open app most times !!!
Terrible performance 1/5
Easily the worst performing app on my iPhone. Great content, but it takes forever to load and is maddeningly unresponsive. I can hardly stand it and often just give up and close the app before viewing the content I went to view in the first place.
Minor problems 3/5
It seems that this app is fine if you only want scores or information on sporting events. But it doesn't do very well with news. Every time I click on an article in my notifications to read it, it just takes me to the ESPN home screen. If I try to open the article in safari. The link does not transfer to safari so it just sends you to the ESPN home page. Useless. How am I suppose to read these articles? A complete fail.
I wrote this review a year ago; it still applies.
