The app crashes every Sunday.
Weird controls, autoplay on Open is annoying 2/5
By equals 42
Loses your account daily. Have to reactivate every day lately.
Why does the AppleTV remote pause button work only to pause but not resume? Who the heck thought that was a good idea? Why can I only scroll forward on the touch control surface in video when I’m paused?
When you open the app, it starts playing audio from whatever is on ESPN. (I think. I never confirm the channel.). That’s annoying. The shows in the ESPN+ section randomly move all over the place from day to day. I only have a few things I like to watch but I am always hunting around for where they went today. That’s what will end up making me quit the app and service.
The video itself is fine but you can’t see what the resolution is nor specify a desired resolution either.
Crashes, unreliable 2/5
This app fails on many levels. Being nit picky, the app is glitchy and rough in navigation, the text and icons get stuck and have glitchy displays.
The app crashes often. If wifi or cellular data are even somewhat low, the app barely functions.
You can't view a teams full schedule, they only display a certain amount in the window which makes absolutely no sense.
IVE NEVER SEEN AN APP THIS SLOW
Buggy with Blank Screen, Don’t Bother Downloading. 1/5
I have downloaded and re-downloaded the app at least 5 times as of writing this review. The app randomly will open with a blank screen, no buttons or display at all, staying like this until I try to open it again and kicking me out. I have tried closing out of the app and waiting an hour to no avail so I’ve been forced to delete and download the app a myriad of times.
On top of this their article writing is pathetic. A prime example being the title of the Chiefs vs. Texans game (10/13/2019) article. It states that the Chiefs overcame the Chiefs, when the Texans won. I pointed this out to them via twitter and Instagram but they have yet to respond or even change the article title to an accurate one. ESPN has turned into a Buzzfeed style sports content company. It’s disappointing to see how far they’ve fallen since the acquisition by Disney.
It’s also interesting to note that their parent company, Disney, also experiences lots of issues with their apps. Maybe instead of focusing on churning out useless articles they could look inward and fix their clear infrastructure issues.
This app is trash 1/5
It constantly force closes, rarely works efficiently an updated slowly. I don’t know how the “worldwide leader in sports” could have such a terribly managed app. Constant bugs. Screw ESPN
Keeps crashing 1/5
ESPN app has so many problems. Updates on games are often slow or just wrong. Or it will do what mine does once a week and crash as soon as you open it. This is the only review I’ve ever written on here just to say how trash this app is.
Can’t even open 1/5
The app freezes and crashes on launch.
30 second ads even with espn+ 1/5
You pay $5 for espn+ and you still have to watch 30 second non-skippable ads
Best Dam App Ever 5/5
Great app get all the information.
Problem with app 1/5
Hey for some reason my app is not letting me connect
Keeps crashing 1/5
I’ve had to download this app at least a dozen times, because it keeps crashing and nothing loads.
Love ESPN app 5/5
Always gives me info on important sports stuff keeps me up to date and always has lots of info regarding my favorite sports
App crashes way to much!!
I hate this app 1/5
Always behind and inaccurate. Half the time the app won’t even load. Like now I can’t even check the score on football games on it because it won’t load at all. Worst app on my phone.
Used to be great but now it always crashes 1/5
By Cali Snowboarder
As so many others have noted, this app, which is terrific when it works, constantly crashes, and I’m left staring at a blank white screen when I open it. No user should have to keep uninstalling and reinstalling an app like this.
ESPN is the best 5/5
A lot of issues 1/5
I used this app multiple times a day to look at scores and stats of games, and I have to delete the app and redownload it 5+ times a week because it stops working. Close it open it only to receive a black screen. You would think a company like this would have a well functioning app but it is not.
Very slow 1/5
App always takes forever to open and bugs out way too often
Awful app 1/5
Once a week I have to reinstall it because the app will open but after 10 seconds of a blank screen it will close. Turning off my phone doesn’t fix it and my internet works fine. I downloaded another sports app. I submitted several bug reports and I’ve never heard back.
Don’t waste your money on this! 1/5
By Sicilian Cowboy
The worst customer service ever! Nice people but too bad they are located in India and they can’t do anything about any of your issues. I tried twice canceling and reinstall once again and continues errors keep showing up and I was not able to watch anything. Don’t waste your time calling because those nice people have no control and the manager or the person that may be able to eventually help you he or she will never call you back so you wasted your money and your time and forget about watching anything with this app.
It’s ok 2/5
Have more options, easier navigating
Crashes a lot 1/5
Poorly designed app. Crashes a lot and consistently takes a while to load videos and articles. I periodically have to delete and redownload the app because it crashes and will not restart.
PLEASE FIX CRASH PROBLEM 1/5
Since downloading the newest iOS on my iPhone the app has been crashing and not going blank for numerous amount of times. They only temporary solution is to delete the app and re download it again (come on man)
Espn app is garbage it works half the of time and when it is working it’s lagging 5-10 mins. Bleacher report is the way to go if you fast updates until ESPN catches up.
I used to have no complaints at all with this app. Now it won’t even load 2/5
For the past month or so, I have been forced to reinstall this app because it refuses to open at all. I don’t really like bleacher report, but I have no choice but to convert to B/R because it’s not being fixed
By gig mtn
App has to be deleted and reinstalled on a regular basis. Frequently opens with a blank white screen. Once it does this the only way to fix it appears to be to reinstall the app.
THE APP KEEPS CRASHING 1/5
2 updates and the app STILL keeps crashing - FIGURE IT OUT
Fix your strategy 1/5
By Kyle Filipe
I went to the espn.com site on Safari mobile, clicked on an article and it brought me to the ESPN mobile app (not even to the article that I had tapped on, so I needed to start all over again). I think clicked on the same link (via the mobile app) that I tried to click on from Safari, and it did a website call through a web browser within the app, and just continuously spun. So to recap, you sent me from the website version to the app back out to a website version (all within ESPN’s control) and it didn’t even load. Stop talking about politics on-air and fix other elements of your own house, ESPN.
Poorly designed up with non-existant tech support 1/5
By Emperor bart
The espn app keeps messing up for me. I click open, and then it always freezes on a blank screen. Then I delete the app and re-download it. It works 1 or 2 times, then will only open to the blank screen again.
I contacted tech support to fix the problem. First was an automated text message system that responded about the espn fantasy app, not the regular ESPN app. Then I tried a different support app, but this app froze again. What a disaster. Time to move on to the Athletic and Bleacher Report.
In description they made it sound like you can watch anything from ESPN even live Programming or game.. but if you need a subscription from other providers why not just stick with other providers app . Waste of five dollars.
Constantly Broken - Have to Delete and Reinstall to Fix 1/5
The app constantly gets a white screen. Force quitting the app, restarting the phone, etc. does not fix it. I shouldn’t have to keep reinstalling this app to fix it. Terrible quality app.
By ronnie iglesias
The best sports app in the field!!
Substance good. Operation terrible 1/5
I have problems with everything in this app. The biggest being the 30 second ad you have to watch for any 15 second highlight. Also, changing your tv provider is entirely too burdensome. Speaking of, half the time my provider doesn’t support that content. The ESPN content that I have every channel of. What?!
Hit or miss right now. 2/5
This app keeps crashing on me and I have to delete is and redownload it. When it’s not crashing it’s giving me amazing sports news. Please just stop the crashing
Streaming issues 1/5
By Ga Duck
Constantly have issues when trying to watch a game. The old app worked great but this new update is awful .
Blackouts a big problem 2/5
I’ve used this app plenty of times- generally without issue.
Today, however, (after paying my subscription fee weeks in advance) I went to turn on a playoff game right at kickoff. I’m asked what TV/Internet Service Provider I have- I click on Xfinity. The app thinks about it for a second and tells me that I can’t watch the game because it’s not included in my cable package. In my head I’m thinking, “well obviously I don’t have those channels on my cable package- that’s the whole point of the subscription service.” But outwardly I’m trying to keep myself from chucking my phone at the tv. I’m taken aback. I assumed that the motto: “Watch More Sports. Anytime. Anywhere.” would entitle me to watch an important playoff game in the comfort of my own home- clearly an error in judgment on my part...
I compose myself and try the similar app on my PS4- same issue. So, in a moment of great personal growth, I refrained from smashing any innocent electronic devices and quietly cancelled my subscription to ESPN+. I then took the time out of my day that I had intended to go towards watching my team play to write this review.
Anyway, the app sort of defeats itself by not allowing users to view content on channels not currently included in their cable package. Xfinity already offers a streaming service for mobile devices but, again, only for channels on the users current subscription.
Continually crashing 1/5
Over the last several days I have had to delete the app and download/install again because it just stops working. Today alone I have done this 4 times. This is ridiculous.
It’s Not Working 1/5
By Kvng Drey
I Paid My Money For The Subscription But Now It’s Not Working Nor Letting Me Choose A Tv Subscriber! I’ve Done Everything I Even Deleted The App ! I Would Like My Money Back Please
Log in 2/5
Been working perfectly fine til today won’t let me log into my xfinty account to watch the games
App won’t load on IPad 1/5
For whatever reason the app will not load on my iPad. It will work fine on my phone but is a lemon on iPad
Fix the app 2/5
By Joey from SC
Fix this app. It’s had problems for the last couple weeks. Right now if I quit the app, re-open it, I can watch one game. If I try to switch it will act like the video start but it never does.
ESPN+ Fails Sign Up / Sign In 1/5
I want to watch live streams of games that I am interested in watching. Thought this app would do the trick, but cannot get in to even login or sign up. ESPN gets my first $5, but no more... Subscription cancelled 30 minutes after purchase.
READ MY REVIEW 3/5
By Mae Mae Armistead
1:THE NOTIFICATIONS ARE SO ANNOYING!!!!!!!
2:if you like sports this is the app for you!
3:if you DON’T like sport you will HATE this app
PS:you can go to settings to turn the notifications off but it still makes sound and it’s still annoying!
Roll Tide 1/5
Paid for this to watch the game. Can’t watch the game on it. I can check the scores on the internet bro
Trash app 1/5
3rd time I’ve downloaded it. It works fine for a little bit but eventually bugs out and won’t pull up at all. CBS sports app is 1000x better
Keep having to uninstall and reinstall due to it not loading.
Sign in with Apple! 2/5
There should be an option to be notified about every OT game in a certain league. I want to know about every OT Division 1 college football and college basketball game, so I should be able to click two buttons to set that up. UNC @ VT football went to 6OT today, and I didn’t know to turn the game on!
Please make it clear in the app if football and basketball games are pre-season or regular games
I deleted my ESPN account. I will not create a new one until you add Sign in with Apple
It’s always impossible to watch the pregame before a game starts. For example, if a football game starts at 7:30 and I want to turn on the channel before it starts to see the pre-game, this is nearly impossible. You should be able to just play whatever is on ESPN, ESPN2, etc, without having to pick a specific game.
Just watched US Open 2019 Men’s Championship. The commentators kept saying to turn on ESPN2 to watch the post-game award ceremony. I was unable to turn this on. There should just be an ESPN, ESPN2, etc button to simply turn on that channel. This is such a joke.
Slow to load and disappointing 1/5
Wow, could the app be any slower? Does not load more than 50% of the time. This APP is terrible!!!!
Doesn’t work with new IOS update. 1/5
Doesn’t work with new IOS update
