Switching from android to apple i was about to download this app ..the constant stream of negative feedback was all I needed to see to say forget it! ESPN is now officially garbage on multiple platforms. With so many better sports apps out don’t waste your time with this joke of an app
Worst Sports app...ever 1/5
This app gets worse with every update. The increased ads and the prominence of sports I care nothing for such as boxing and MMA were bad enough. Now you remove the inability to fast forward the existing video ads??? This app is as bad as the garbage Max Kellerman and Stephen A Smith spew out.
Bad Notifications and Apple TV App PiP doesn’t work 3/5
And it hasn’t for at least a year. Maybe never. Do they know? Using AirPlay 2.
Also, I want Team News without Start Time notifications (two separate alert options) but they still give me the gd start time every game. Stoooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooppppppppppppppppppppp.
New Update ruined for me 2/5
By a male homo sapien
Used to love this app, would read up on all the latest soccer news but now the new articles never load
Fix now 1/5
I can’t look at the home team’s stats for any nba game.
Default tab 1/5
How many times do I have to change my default tab to Scores? It keeps changing back to Home. I get it, you want me to watch more mobile videos. Poor user experience.
After update. 5/5
By no one someone
After last up date. I can’t switch between the teams to see their stats
I use this app every day to listen to popular podcasts on EPSN. The new update requires you to take so many steps just to get to your favorite podcasts. Can we please go back to the old way and make it easy? The podcasts are the only reason I have the app 😩
Notification spam for years 1/5
I don’t want breaking news. I only want scores for my teams. I keep disabling breaking news yet espn keeps turning it back on without my consent to advertise their TV programming. Please stop.
Can’t login with tv provider 1/5
Just a white screen that doesn’t load the login.
Deceptive marketing 1/5
Nowhere in the description of this app does it tell the user that they need to have a TV subscription. For the love of God, why can’t someone please come out with an app that you don’t need a TV subscription for?
Subscription service through iTunes is *very* inconsistent 1/5
Subscription service through iTunes is *very* inconsistent. After I successfully subscribed, I more often than not would be asked to go to the espn activation site and activate with a service provider.
Finally got fed up and cancelled through iTunes subscription, which said I would still have 2+ weeks to use the service since I paid for it. However, the App then *immediately* stopped streaming service. I wasn’t going to go through the hassle of contacting support for $5 - it’s like getting a cold and screwed up order in a fast food drive through.
Now with Ads? Really ESPN 1/5
All the videos now come with ads you can’t skip. Nobody got time for that
Who gives this more than two stars? 1/5
By Abe Fortas
Literally crashes every time you open it, unless you update — which apparently is required weekly.
Can’t save favorites 1/5
I am unable to save favorites. It keeps telling me I have no internet connection. I’ve been trying to do this for months now. I would like to be notified if my favorites but can’t.
Updated ads too long 1/5
The latest update now forces you to sit through long ads to view a video. Previously you could at least fast forward through the ads. I’ll be looking for a new sports app. So sad....
Can’t do anything on the app 1/5
It crashes constantly and would tell me to check my network connection when I try to save anything (team, league, etc.) as a favorite. It worked fine but I redownloaded on a new phone and it’s bugged out
No Listen/Radio Button 1/5
By Wayne Beamer
Generally, I’ve liked the ESPN app and the availability of ESPN+ on IT, BUT upping the listen tab off the main screen makes it useless for me. Why not develop a new and improved espn radio app for listening to the radio shows and podcasts? When that happens, or you bring back the listen tab on the front page, I’ll be back.
Each version gets progressively worse 1/5
By Barça Ty
Now there are no news stories outside of the major American sports. Yesterday they were there, today not so much. I guess the next “update” won’t even have the scores.
Listen tab! 1/5
Put the listen tab back on the home screen!
Inconsistent and Frustrating... 2/5
By "Dodger" Dave Bakalyar
For a paid subscription, this is truly unacceptable...
Why do I pay $5 a month for such an endlessly buggy app? Not sure I will next month IF it's not fixed.
Soccer articles?? 1/5
What happened to articles...now only videos....I have to go to the webpage to read new soccer articles!
Doesn’t show full highlights for games anymore 1/5
By Marcelo CardenAs
This app used to be my go to app for watching nba highlights but they don’t show full game highlights anymore. Extremely disappointed. Looks like I’ll be using the NBA app.
New update 2/5
30 second ads for a 10 second video with the new update. Cannot fast forward like you used to. Ruined the app.
App loads empty 1/5
Logging into ESPN+ is a pain in the butt on multiple devices. The effort ESPN made someone go through to list/explain directions on how to log in to all the multiple devices is very extra.
ESPN here’s a simple fix.
1. Make a log in screen for ESPN+
2. Make a separate app just for ESPN+
Streaming doesn’t work 1/5
Videos go blank now when hooked into an hdmi cord...
App doesn’t open. 1/5
App used to work, updated it now it doesn’t open. Stop “fixing” things that don’t need to be fixed.
Worst app ever 1/5
Tried to watch a game paid the 4.99 fee. All of them are “blacked out in your area”. Why should I have to pay for free content. I paid so I could watch a game but no game to watch. Rip off!
Please use full team names 3/5
The last update changed all team names in the scoreboard to 3 letter abbreviations, which isn’t nearly as user friendly, especially for sports like college basketball where they’re not always intuitive.
Don’t understand the change 2/5
I’ve been on this wild espn app ride for a while now, probably 10 years or so. I’ve seen it all. The previous version was probably my favorite. Not buggy and pretty smooth.
I didn’t think something so little as moving the listen tab would bug me like it does, but it does and I’m honestly more app to listen to a podcast now instead of that clumsy menu. Half the time golic and wingo isn’t available on time anyhow. Sorry guys.
Just awful. You going to spend most of the time waiting for it to load and you have to press on whatever you wish to see or watch at least 4-5 times before it finally goes and even then it probably won’t even take you to the right page. Save yourself the time and stress dealing with this piece of S
Most recent update makes this app very slow to load even on a new phone. Needs serious work.
So bad 1/5
This new home is so bad where’s the radio?
Home tab selections changed for the worse 2/5
By Newsy guy
Where did the sports tab go at the bottom of the home page? It is not an option anymore? A huge step backward.
Bad update 1/5
App is slow and doesn’t even open 75 percent of the time
It's good. For now *edited* 1/5
This app has had a lot of ups and downs the last year or two. I would say it's at its peak right now. Least amount of bugs out of all previous versions, and now has much more information than before.
Edit: new update ruined the app. Overly complex. Change for the sake of it. Navigating is much more confusing. App moves slower. Honestly not even worth downloading right now. Go for yahoo or something else.
Stop re-enabling Breaking News Alerts 3/5
By John Baum
I continually have to turn off breaking news alerts as your app turns them back on despite my turning them off. Again and again!
Terrible update 1/5
Videos and podcasts streaming simultaneously, app plummeting
Stop charging me it doesn’t work 1/5
By not so happy dude
I just want to cancel my subscription, it doesn’t work and it doesn’t even recognize my email address, pls just stop charging me I can’t use, this is my second review asking for the same.
Used to be great... 3/5
I don’t understand why the developers would remove the favorites feature. The ability to follow specific teams was literally the best part of the app. It is now really difficult to find a specific team, which leads me to use other sources than espn to find the info I need
Not working after update 1/5
Unable to open app after most recent update. Please fix.
I Love ESPN but they have regressed 1/5
By TeJas Pete12
The app is excellent other than the fact y’all changed the way standing are viewed. It’s very complicated and too complex. Go back to the way it was.
App is tooooo busy 😩
Great app, but 5/5
I doubt anyone from ESPN will actually read this or take this into consideration but I think the one thing that can make this app even better or give it the icing on the cake, if you will, would be dark theme. Most social media apps are introducing dark mode, and with ESPN’s app being a white theme, why wouldn’t we be able to change it from white to black? I personally think it would look great and be easier on our sport-loving eyes. Anyways, nobody will read this so, have a nice day.
Straight garbage 1/5
Everytime I try to watch a game in makes me sign in to my provider even though I make it to keep it saved. Then when we finally put it in surprise surprise still doesn’t load. Thanks ESPN for proving this company is going downhill.
Love ESPN 2/5
I just got the new update 6.4 but my 2 stars are because they removed the option to listen the radio programs, you’ll have to navigate thru the settings and look around, if someone knows an ease way to get the option to get to listen the radio programs will be appreciate it.
This was originally ESPN Radio 1/5
The new update hides the radio in the “more” section. Also still no sleep timer, so I open up other apps to listen to sports radio with a timer. Not too smart ESPN.
Articles scroll back to the top 1/5
While reading an article, it always scrolls back to the top of the page for reason.
