Needs work 2/5
By Tito Bliss
App is slow and laggy, especially when looking up scores and the box scores.
Buggy and Laggy 1/5
Every update gets worse and worse, the app is very slow, very buggy, and overall terrible.
Another one. 1/5
Come on NBA! Ya'll need to fire your software developers. Let me know if ya'll need help writing code. I don't even think your code compiled lol.
NBA app 1/5
This app is absolutely terrible. Poor performance and way too many bugs. Navigating box scores is almost impossible. Step it up NBA
With all the money that the NBA makes I'm disappointed to find that their app is still mediocre. Here's a hint: Look at the NHL app for tips on how to improve the NBA app. If need be, copy the entire format of the NHL app. That's how much this app needs improvement.
Year after Year it's a buggy app 1/5
By RaG And tAg
I don't understand how every year the NBA put out a terrible app, rather than fix problems, they introduce new ones every release. Still inconsistent play back, box scores no working consistently. This has been true in at the least the last two releases.
Wayyyy Too Slow 1/5
Box score takes at least 30 seconds to load. App used to be good. Ad's have ruined it.
Overall design!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 2/5
While these minor improvements are nice, it is the OVERALL DEDIGN of the app that NEEDS TO CHANGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Again, take a look at the NHL and MLB apps for some pointers.
No improvements 1/5
The box score display is still trash!!!
You can change the logo but it's still unacceptable. 2/5
Still riddled with bugs and performance issues. Unbelievable considering how much money the NBA pulls in.
The most frustrating app 1/5
This is probably my 5th time deleting this app in the past year. With all the money the NBA makes, their app is a decade behind.
I've had this app for a very long time. All of a sudden a few months ago the times for the games stopped working and they all say TBD. I've restarted the app and redownloaded it, but it still doesn't work. I've also emailed support twice and haven't gotten a response. In that respect, not great... otherwise it works fine though.
Free agency tracker 3/5
By andy millicockis
I expect all NBA alerts to come from this app, however it's usually last. On top of that the free agency tracker only lists three players under signed and doesn't even show their contracts...
Works perfectley 5/5
By The Dude Of Food Loos
This works perfectley. No bugs to be found yet. Keeps me informed all the time and the NBA Leauge Pass is worth every penny. Love it 5/5
Every time I open the app, the first 20secs I'm on it, it #$&@!? Crashes👎🏽
Really dope 5/5
By J Cole Chicago
Love this app.
This app is terrible. They update it for the draft and create a special draft button. Oops, the draft button doesn't work. :(
By Poopman p
Simply don't work, too many bugs 1/5
By Brian the Extremist
Worst basketball app ever used
Can't use the Local time 5/5
Official APP is very good, but l can not use the local time in China.
Does not allow you to watch games 1/5
They pushed this by telling people they can watch the playoffs live lol. You can not watch using this app. You get a screen saying it's a blackout game that can't be streamed.
PLEASE FIX THE TO-TOP SCROLLING 3/5
I enjoy this, but it has a quirk that is really annoying. When reading an article in the News section, every minute or so the screen seems to refresh automatically to the top of the page. So when reading an article that requires scrolling down multiple "screens" I find that I need to repeatedly find where I was before the refresh. Reading a typical article requires this procedure 4 or more times. The developers need to FIX THIS!!!
NBA App 1/5
This is my first app review, and I'm just here to say this app is awful. Takes long too load, videos auto playing while trying to look at box score, scores not updating. Just keep the ESPN app. This is an absolute joke.
Painful User Interface 1/5
The NBA website has been terrible for a while, so i assumed the official app would be a little better. It is slow to update, terrible to navigate, and an overall pain to use.
The best option is to google scores and stats.
This app doesn't even work on my iPhone 1/5
All I get when activated is "An unknown error occurred."
I've updated the app. I've deleted and re-downloaded the app three times. It just doesn't work for my iPhone 6Plus
Auto playing ads and videos that can't be paused? 1/5
I just want to check a box score. Video starts playing. There's no on screen controls to turn it off or at least mute it. Clicking it just takes you to the products webpage. Deleting and just using ESPN or SI
Not worth it 1/5
NBA league pass is not worth it.
NBA get your act together!! 1/5
By Not a Tech Geek
This is he worst app. I live overseas and purchased the international league pass. It only works on my computer but not using the nba app on my Apple devices. What a POS software.
who thought automatically playing video ads when trying to view a box score and nothing else was a good idea?
No comparison to the old old version couple years ago 2/5
Comparing to the older version the year before, this app is garbage.
Former options no longer available 2/5
I used to be able to see a players averages over their career by year and it's no longer available, no view of scores by quarter, and video plays automatically I don't like it. Putting my phone on silent doesn't even silence the sound.
App wont open anymore
Video playing unnecessarily 1/5
I just wanna see stats. No video but you wanna throw that in my face at all times
Not fair and balanced! 3/5
On Sunday the Celtics finally took the lead with 4 min left the NBA app sent a push notification. Tonight the Cavs were down all game and they finally took the lead with 3 min in the third q and no push notification for the Cavs.
Box Score 1/5
What millennial created a tab called "box score" and doesn't provide any team scoring by quarter?
Doesn't refresh scores 1/5
Whenever you reopen the app, all of your scores are the same as last time. There is no mechanism for refreshing the scores without clicking on a game. If you pull the screen down you just get last week's games, and your live game's score from an hour ago.
One annoying feature that ruins the app 1/5
I don't usually write reviews, and I'm pretty easy to please. However, this app has a feature that makes me hate to use it. When you open the app and click on a score an automatic commercial begins to play with sound. There is no way seemingly to pause this or mute it. You are forced to endure a full volume preview, even if your phone is on mute. I could understand a commercial that defaulted in mute, but this is rediculous. Please update and delete this annoying featureand.
They could of made this app much better you guys should be ashamed for having this app and it's the "official" app for the NBA this app doesn't even deserve 1 star take the ads off.
Will not let me update 1/5
By Ry5n skater
On my AppleTV, I go on the NBA app and it says you must have an update. I go to update it and it just says open app. It is not showing an option for me to update the NBA app on my Apple TV. Please fix this.
User experience is terrible 1/5
Hard to navigate to what you want. Slow loading content. Video auto play is such a bad idea because most of time it is playing a unwanted one and it is slow!
I shouldn't need to watch a commercial to view the boxscore of a game.
Auto-play video ads. Deleted app. 1/5
Used to pay for this app too
Not great 2/5
On iPhone 7 the app should open instantly. It takes 5 seconds.
Ads are not retina quality.
ADD A WIDGET PLEASE 5/5
By far worst sports app 1/5
Easily the worst sports app there is.
I try and look at the box scores and am greeted with an awkward scroll that jumps the screens.
I try and look at the box score and it auto plays a video. Of course, the video first has to have an advertisement. I can't pause or stop the ad, as tapping on the video triggers an ad click. Cheap interaction design.
Frustrating experience all around. With the lack of care and attention to the people using the app, I've removed it from my phone.
Cannot Scroll 3/5
when viewing box score, i can't properly scroll up or down.
Terrible app indeed 1/5
Slow to load and when it load, full of ads.
Worst App I have ever used 1/5
I have never seen an app as buggy as the NBA app. Even for the simplest things like checking the box score or matchups, the app freezes over and over again; it's very frustrating. I want to punch my TV screen every time I see the NBA app commercial come on. False advertising at its best.
Won't even allow me to log in 1/5
Had a previous version of the app before being forced to update. Had no issues at all with the old app and it never crashed. This version won't even let me sign in to my League Pass account. No more NBA on the go for me.
