They immediately pull the previous days game scores of the home screen and they’re hard to find. Why would you do that…???
Terrible update 1/5
App was great before but this latest update made it worse I'm deleting and going with Bleacher Report..
Great, Much Needed Update 5/5
By Tim Ceeeeeeeee
Long overdue update has really sped up the app and made it even easier to navigate.
Hate New App 2/5
By iphoto lover
I absolutely hate the layout and functionality of the revised ESPN App.
Too much content 1/5
Can’t find my favorite teams easy. Too much content jammed into too little space.
Home Screen is Garbage 2/5
Home Screen is incredibly important. It is where you begin your sports day. It where you get your news. But, somethings you truly do not care about. For me, if I never saw NBA, MLB, or NFL news I would be fine. I watch Atlanta United, a couple of European soccer teams, Villanova basketball, and NHL. My home screen always MLB, NBA, and NFL. I get it—these are the big three. ESPN should focus their coverage on these leagues. But your home screen should reflect your interests—this is 101 app design since apps became a thing. There is plenty of MLS, Bundesliga, Champions league, and NHL news to keep my news feed fresh without have most of it dedicated to teams I do not really care about. Fix this major problem, and the App is a Five Star app.
For now, I’ll occasionally use it when Atlanta United is away, Atlanta United II is playing, or NHL is airing on ESPN.
Cluttered mess 1/5
Used to be easy to see scores of your favorite teams first, then the rest of the teams from the sport after. New update has turned it into a cluttered mess. Makes it terribly hard to even find the scores of teams you like on the main screen. Skip this app and download a different one if you’re looking for scores.
Just awful 1/5
Awful app. Crashes often. Difficult to navigate. ESPN=Poor Quality.
New update 1/5
I used to be able to stream on to my TV using my iPhone to HDMI adapter. Now since the new update, that is no longer an option. I am a truck driver and use that adapter as much as possible. Now I am watching the NBA playoffs on my phone as opposed to my 32” TV. Thanks for ruining a perfectly good app.
Scores aren’t first to load 3/5
The fact that the default tab isn’t scores anymore is bad. I get why - hopes at accidental clicks on stories to create ad revenue - but it’s just a sad sign of the times.
New update is terrible 1/5
Too much confusion with all the extra news, ads, and pictures/videos added to the main page with new update. Change back or lose a user
Big Missing Piece in Redesign. Please fix. 1/5
You used to have the ability to go to a “My Teams” feed and get only news and highlights from your favorites.
They now took that out and you have to scroll through to see anything from your teams or go into Sports and look at a team by team feed.
Losing this ability basically render’s the app useless for me.
By Les informed
This is by far the worst update of any app I have ever seen. Return to the old format
Great app! 5/5
Like the improvements over the last few versions.
Racist App 1/5
This app is now even more racist than before. Before you can see the Liga MX schedule and points, etc on the main page of scores. Then they reduced it to just “Top Soccer”. Now it’s not even on there, so I had to look for it in the most hidden section which is “More Soccer Leagues” and guess what? It’s not there anymore. MLS and Australian league aren’t as good as Liga MX and you have their scores as top soccer and you don’t even have Liga MX? Just because Mexican league beats MLS all day doesn’t mean you should take off their scores and match days, etc. I’ve noticed these little details as the app has gone by with their updates. I’ve been a huge fan of the app since I had my iPhone 3GS. I’ve always had this app. But now I’m considering hanging up my boots with this app. Please reconsider what you have done.
Bad update! 1/5
By Raider Rob 77
Hate the new update!!! My fav teams are harder to access now and it’s nowhere near as easy to maneuver!
Easy to use makeover but still some bugs 4/5
New App was confusing for a couple of minutes on first use but it’s actually easy to use. Once they work out some of the bugs that cause it to crash it will be great.
I enjoy the app but I absolutely hate having to click the dismiss button every time I open the app because I don’t keep my location service on. I also can’t watch espn now because my location service is off. Most likely delete it soon if not fixed.
Dislike the new format 2/5
My favorite teams on home screen were the main thing I looked at. Now the home screen basically shows me what you want me to look at, not what I want to see. Currently looking for a new sports app
“Wide right...” 1/5
The new update leaves out the one button access to favorites, which was the best feature before. I don’t want to wade through a ton of stuff I don’t care about in order to check on my teams. Nothing in the new update is significantly better, and this is a significant loss of user friendly content filter.
No politics!!!! 1/5
Eliminate the political bent on practically everything and views of millions of us could change. We go to ESPN to watch as entertainment, escaping the political crap that is so rampant elsewhere! New leadership over there is needed!
The best 5/5
The best sports app I ever had.
Most of the other apps were slow on loading.
Bring back older version 3/5
New updated version is a lot more jumbled, do they the scores and updates I wanted right at the top, have to go searching for them. Older version just a lot nicer, neater, and friendlier
Love it 5/5
All you need for SPORTS in one app!!!
Nothing but errors 1/5
I keep getting a “max number of concurrent streams” error while trying to watch the nba playoffs. I have one single device on and I am the only person who knows my log in. Completely useless
Doing to much 1/5
It makes it very difficult to to keep track of my fav teams. There is to much going on.
Ok app but it’s sluggish
By there all take
ESPN does not update there scores, and info. As fast as they can.
Changes in formatting need improvement 1/5
Very difficult to find what you’re looking for with this new format. I’ve been a loyal Espn follower since I entered the smart phone game but that may be soon changing.
It was my go-to before the update. 1/5
By Clints P
Now it’s a pain. Ads everywhere. They try to have to subscribe to there espn+ which is an extra 4.99 a month to watch other games. I understand the need to gain money, but the whole app itself isn’t sexy anymore. Time to look for an alternative.
No quick glance 1/5
Old layout was way better!
I had all my teams right on top so I could quick glance the scores.. now I have to scroll and grind the scores I want to see.
New app not as good 1/5
By Richie Roch
Harder to find what you are looking for & the content is buried
Liberal bias 1/5
Considering deleting this app because you guys are so liberal and biased!
Great sports app BEFORE the latest update 2/5
I use to love this until I just recently updated it the other day. I’d give it five stars if they put my favorites back on the home screen like it use to be. It’s just one extra click away but when you’re use to something for so long that extra click is annoying. Having this ESPN app on your phone is definitely a must for sports fans though. The content is what you would expect. JUST BRING BACK MY FAVORITES ON THE HOME SCREEN. Thanks. 😁👍🏼
Previous be soon was more user friendly. 3/5
Liked previous version better. Simpler, more efficient. This version is gimmicky.
The word 4/5
All the fixings in the world of sports
Miss George Grande and Lou Palmer 1/5
By rob olden days
Too much soccer and kneeling,whining athletes and liberal hosts
Missing primary use case 1/5
Like most people, I use this app primarily for a quick look at the latest scores and/or important sports news. On a day when there are many games going on, I check that app many times throughout the day to see the latest scores. I’m only in the app for 30 seconds or less each time and want it to open instantaneously. This app no longer meets that primary need. Instead, as others have indicated, It’s very slow to start, very slow to scroll, and it takes multiple clicks for me to see the scores. I want quick open and instant access to scores and instead get slow response and a “duck hunt” to find the scores I’m looking for. My guess is ESPN is trying to increase engagement time for the obvious reason of making more money on ads, trying to get get us to give them more personal information (e.g., email address), and trying to get paid subscribers. While I don’t fault them for trying to make more money, I do fault them for doing so at the expense of a good user experience. I suggest the following: On app open show just the scores without video and complex card layouts. Allow teasers to videos and news stories for those who have more time. But don’t force it on everyone. Also use a little a guy to evaluate usage patterns. If someone is using it the app primarily to check scores keep showing scores first. On the other hand, if someone is using it primarily to watch videos, then go ahead and show that first. Then you get the best of both worlds and maximize revenue without frustrating some sports fans. BTW I do like the cards as a design element in the new section if the performance was better.
I'm so tired of this app they constantly pump adds ask for more money and they play 30sec commercials for 15sec clips. I understand ESPN needs to make money but this app is more about how proud ESPN is of themselves then sports. It just gets old
Include Wrestling 3/5
By I<3Dr. Pepper nd Mr. Pib
I enjoy the ESPN app but I wish they covered my favorite sport with it (the app). There are no selections for following NCAA or Olympic wrestling on this app. I appreciate that ESPN has covered the NCAA National Wrestling Finals but would like to be able to follow my beloved sport via the app to see what is going on in the sport at any given point in the year.
Go somewhere else for your scores 1/5
I don’t know what the go to sports app is but I can easily it’s not here.
A joke for such a large network 1/5
Company should be embarrassed as to how the app works and how limited it is. Phone apps should be better than their web pages, not worse. Try looking up nfl draft on here. Try logging off and logging back on. Horrible app.
By i decline to leave name
The new format stinks to me. Too hard to read game recaps and get scores. 2 versions ago was MUCH better.
$5 a month to watch MLS? 5/5
Not happy with ESPN+ 1/5
I paid the $4.99 a month for an inferior product to the old MLS Live. The app constantly disconnects from Chromecast making it hard to pause a game. When you go to start watching a previously aired game, the app shows highlight reels above the game with score spoilers that ruin the game for you. Finally, every app message is debug text, including the buttons for in app purchases, so you have no idea what you’re clicking on.
By samcat 1
I would like to see more scores than just the top 25 teams in a sport.
The app itself is a little hard to navigate, but nothing too troublesome. I don’t mind an extra tap or two to get information on games. But a day after starting the ESPN+ trial, it just stopped working. Every time I try to watch a game, I get a “There was an error that prevented this video from playing” message. It would’ve definitely been worth my buck once the subscription started after the trial, but what’s the point if it’ll only work on my tv, not my phone???
Low quality streams. Downloaded “PLUS” for MLS games.
You lose the bottom 1/10 of your screen to an annoying black display bar that doesn’t stop displaying information.
But at least it plays a lot of what you’re looking for.
App went south 1/5
I used to like this app because I could pick what I wanted to see. ESPN decided to dictate what I see so I deleted it.
Do not want location services enabled. 1/5
App is not usable unless you enable location services. If you dismiss the notification it just comes back with whatever action you take next.
