So far so good 4/5
I download this app to follow the different shows about the FIFA World Cup and so far so good ... most of the time works even better than my tv provider streaming app.
Espn App 1/5
By Miser 321
Well I just don’t understand. This is the slowest app on my phone. All other apps respond very quickly, but the espn app has at least an 8 second delay. What gives......Please fix it.
Horribly slow 1/5
I'm always having problems with this app. Every day is a different issue with podcasts or just checking scores. You think ESPN would employ a reasonable team manage this slow laggy app.
Whoops something went wrong. 1/5
That’s really what the app should be called if I open this just wanting to get scores 9/10 I get “whoops something went wrong”. Worst app ever - easier just to google scores
I agree this app is now awful 1/5
Almost every time I open the ESPN app I get an error message telling me something went wrong but it doesn’t say what went wrong. It won’t load at all. Even with the most recent update I continue to get this error message constantly.
Difficult to find scores 1/5
It’s annoying that you can’t scroll through the app to see scores from all games. If the game isn’t a headline game than you have to click through a bunch of links to get the score
Great... When it works 2/5
The ESPN app probably crashes more than any other app I possess. It makes it hard to follow your team or watch the network when it always shuts down within seconds of opening the app.
Awkward and Bias 2/5
My biggest complaint by far is the apps underdevelopment of customization and preferences of user favorites.
It seems the app has incredibly bias towards American sports over anything else. Case in point, coverage for the 2018 World Cup, is limited despite all my preferences and favorites being heavily soccer-specific. Is this because the USMNT isn't in the tournament? Does this mean the app has to suffer?
However, during the NFL season for example, NFL league news, highlights and alert stream so frequently you'd wish you could scale back all the notifications.
For soccer related news and highlights a user needs to cycle through several tabs and pages just to find info. Which is my second complaint. The UX applications are terrible. Too many tabs, too much swiping.
Used to be better 2/5
Ever since the latest update the app has been super slow and I don’t like the new tabs set up and configuration.
No videos 1/5
By Mark 457863367
I love espn and the coverage that they do.....but this app is not up to par with all there other things, like there tv channels etc. it is a hard to use app. About 5 months ago they changed the interface and now all it is is confusing. And the biggest point is if I wanna watch a highlight of a game or a video of then talking about power rankings for any video at all it crashes. I am on the latest version of the app and I am on the latest version for iOS and it is starting to really piss me off.
I ❤️ streaming video. This app hates me. 1/5
Trying to stream a 30 for 30 and I hate my experience. Video keeps pausing and loading and loses audio. I was excited to curl up on the couch and enjoy a documentary, but now I’m fighting back tears of rage. I have never had problems streaming video on other apps that I’ve enjoyed. Netflix, hbo, Hulu, etc. all of them deliver seamless, relaxing entertainment. The ESPN app delivers a pile of garbage into my living room and asks me what I’m gonna do with it. It’s so bad. It’s on a level where one is left wondering if this is all a joke. Like the developers aren’t just incompetent (that would result in a higher functioning technology), but that they are sadistic maniacs who want me to suffer while they laugh at my misfortune. The ESPN app is trash.
ESPN app blows! 1/5
I paid for ESPN+ so that I could watch more MLS games. This app consistently fails to stream content. Select an event and it just sits there. Finally called tech support - there solution is to delete and then reload the app. And then you have to reactivate the ESPN+ subscription and renter credentials. I have to do this every time I want to stream a game. Never had this problem with MLS Live and their streaming app. Netflix and Hulu work just fine. This problem is centered on the ESPN app. Serious fail!
NCAA baseball alerts 3/5
Really wish they would add ncaa baseball alerts.
What happened? 1/5
I used to love this app. Not sure what happened but the app is incredibly slow even while connected to WIFI. When you read a story and try to go back to the main screen it crashes or takes forever. Why, why, why? It did not do this months ago, something went wrong on an update. Developers, do your job and FIX this!
Constant errors 1/5
It doesn’t really serve it’s purpose, but if you think opening an app to see “An error occurred, please try again” repeated again and again is a fun game, then you are in for a treat. Works about a third of the time.
Not a fan of new app 2/5
I few months back, I'd open the old app daily; however, since the update, I find it more difficult to find what I'm looking for so I've stopped using it as my main sports app.
I still like ESPN coverage, but I use this app as a last resort. Hopefully, the change the UI to make it useable again.
Subscription cancellation 1/5
I don’t like this APP, how I can cancel this subscription?
App is falling apart just as quickly as the network, scores don’t update quick enough, often backtrack and is useless
Jack Dijiacomo 5/5
This is the best app I ever used
Great reporting 5/5
I enjoy all your writers and coverage of the sports I enjoy keep up the good work
Absolute mess 2/5
By Parker (Sunshine Pumper)
Chrome now forces me to read ESPN articles in the ESPN app, but it just brings me to a home page. Trying to search for ESPN+ programs is impossible. Even when you have the exact title, it returns that no programs can be found. I’ve even typed in a program from the main video page just to test it. And I’m *paying* for this service?
Hot garbage 1/5
Love ESPN. Wish there was a better more comprehensive app. This one blows.
ESPN is so useful, and is such a great app. ESPN+ is amazing on the go and is fairly cheap for what it brings to the table.
Great app but there are areas in need of improvement or fixing 2/5
This app has been my "go-to" every time I need to check on my favorite teams and anything that's related to sports. The problem is that when I "click" on a story, a different article pops up. I have to use the "up" and "down" arrows to search for the article that I wanted to read.
The overall design is nice too but I wish it was more streamlined and easier to navigate through.
I love ESPN, but don’t like the app. It’s easily the slowest app I try to use. Something is wrong with their app code or their back end because this app just performs very poorly on a consistent basis.
Too buggy and not customizable enough 2/5
The app crashes and freezes constantly. I would like it better if you could just have the sports your interested in at the top instead of all over the app. They don’t seem to care what we want though. No wonder they’re losing so many subscribers.
Better than Nothing? 1/5
I checked out the app so I can watch MLS games. I found the app not to be well organized, most of the games I want to watch are blacked out. When I do try to watch something, my feed drops after 10 minutes. Finding archived games is tough. Not worth the hassle for the app or the $5 per month subscription. Maybe you can charge $10 and make it better (oh and add an Apple TV app)
Stick to sports 1/5
By McKinney Tech
Or we’ll continue to leave.
I expect much more 1/5
For being ESPN. I expect so much more then a below mediocre app. The notifications I get are basically click bait to ope the app. Once I open the app to look for the story it’s pretty much impossible to find the link as if it never happened. And while scrolling through the news feeds for, I don’t know, let’s say 2-3 mins, if automatically throws you to the top as if the page is still loading. Delete!!!
Ruined by Ads 1/5
By Alen S
Normally I love using the app to get all the sporting news i want. However lately they’ve had some pop up ad that will literally pop up every single time you click on something. I don’t mind an ad here and there but this one literally popping up every single time you try to view a story. It has single handedly ruined using this app.
By J Huntman 55
I signed up for the free trial and immediately cancelled the following day. 5 days later they charged me for the monthly subscription. Don’t trust these people.
By micah l.
Best sports app on the planet, anybody that has the slightest or most intrest in sports will LOVE this app.
Amazing app 5/5
Well I don’t really have ESPN on my tv but this lets me keep with all of the sports
Best app ever 5/5
Best app ever
Love sports❤️💕 5/5
Let me just say, I only watch ESPN, sport shows and food shows. Everything else in life are boring and a waste of my time. Thanks for always being on 24 hours a day. I don’t know what I would do without you.. 👍🏽⚾️⚽️🏈🏀
Stupid news 2/5
“Rickey Fowler plays practice round with Tom Brady” really that’s news that requires a notification. 95% of the notifications are clearly not news.

Always Comprehensive & Looking to Improve 5/5
My previous review mentioned that Chromecast support seemed broken, and I tried just about everything I could to troubleshoot the issue (lots of "Not Authorized" errors, despite everything working fine on-device). Since then, I hadn't tried it again, but it appears to be working fine now.
That being said, ESPN didn't need to redesign their app, but they did and it's always an attempt to make finding content more user-friendly. I like the changes, and while I may not have ESPN+ all the time, it's nice to see what I could be getting (certain times of year it will come in handy). I've tried other sports apps, and outside of MLB At Bat, ESPN's alerts give the most information.
Remove favorite team 3/5
This is a good app,
but I want to be able to remove favorite teams.
Terrible app 1/5
This app is complete garbage for streaming. It worked ONCE. Constantly signs my ESPN provider account out and once I log back in, still can’t watch videos. Do not even waste your time if streaming is the only reason you want the app. Everything else is slow too. Takes 5 seconds to even open up settings.
ESPN.com - great and then not.... 3/5
Short and simple...ESPN offers great articles and good insight, interesting stories and solid reporting - those pieces are nice. However, i think the ball is dropped a little when it comes to basic info. For example, when I go to check the scores and standings for baseball, the site shows the wins and losses and games back, but that’s it - there’s plenty of opportunity to provide more content, like “last ten games” and there’s no player or team stats. You have to try to navigate to the main website. Just wish you could get it all in one place and you would think that of all the places you would find that, it would be here. I read the articles, but the rest is lacking.
One mistake... 4/5
Ok, this is a great app, it’s way better than having to always search up ESPN to look at it. But there is one mistake. Sometimes, my notifications for my favorite teams turn off by themselves, and I have to turn them all back on. Please fix
ESPN is the best 5/5
By Amanda Rhoad (Maid In McBee)
I LOVE ESPN because I can see the score of Clemson, Gamecocks, and more. Also I don’t have to go to a game that in Arkansas, I can watch it right here on ESPN!!!
Plagued by pop-up scam 1/5
If I try to read anything on this app I get the pop-up amazon winner scam. Deleted app.
Improved so much 5/5
By Lil Greg Ninja
It does not crash or go slow or lag.
Not stream-friendly 2/5
Watch ESPN does not work well for live events. Each stream simply ties into an ESPN channel rather then the specific event itself. Hate having to wait until the minute of the event for the steam to appear. I wish the stream would be available at least 15 minutes before the event. I never get to see the beginning of games I want to watch. Also, if the event begins on one channel and then switches to another, you then have to switch streams.
Simple solution: dedicate each stream to the event alone. Not the different channels. If I wanted to flip through channels, I wouldn’t be streaming on the app.
Love it just one thing 4/5
By Mike str8
Love the app. Only thing I was hoping or was a option to move seconds forward or backward watching recorded content on ESPN+.
This app does what I need it to do. It supplies me with alerts and scores whenever i need it. The only thing I have to say is, ESPN covers the PBA (Professional Bowling Association) on their channel, but they don’t cover it on the app. I think that it should be covered on the app as well. Thanks:)
App is not working 1/5
When I open the app, it tells me there is no internet connection, not even the one I just used to download the app. Useless.
Needs a dedicated replay section 1/5
It’s impossible to watch an event right after it happened without seeing who won the event, eliminating the point in watching. Terrible design. Please fix. I HATE spoilers.
