If you need help logging in or anything the app will first sign you out of your account out of nowhere and it won’t send you one code at all to help you get your account back
By Godzilla Blitz
Seriously wonder where all these 5-star reviews are coming from. Hard to tell which teams you’ve selected, which is the single feature you’d want from an app like this.
Destroying the traditional four quadrant view of the tournament bracket makes it hard to see how the games come together.
There are frequent issues with the real-time coding of winners & losers - the team names are right, but sometimes your eliminated picks show in crossed-out red type and sometimes just in crossed-out grey type. BEWARE: Your “correct” picks are only shown in green in the first round, so just when you get used to reading the bracket layout it changes. Why don’t your advancing teams keep displaying in green? 🤷♀️
Hey Disney - Hire some graphic/UI designers (maybe not just sports enthusiasts) and better coding QA personnel!
I have followed the tournament for 35 years, and have filled out many amateur “just for fun” brackets. This app is not intuitive, and the amount of study you have to undertake to understand what your own bracket is telling you is not worth it. Not to mention how the poor design makes it impossible to include more casual tournament fans… 🤦♀️
Cant see groups full brackets 1/5
Its insanely frustrating trying to navigate this app within a group. All i want to do is look at other players in my groups full bracket. This app blows.
ESPN TC 1/5
By slam Latin
If I could give it 0 stars I would. Every time I open the app I get logged out.
Horrible app with irrelevant push notifications 1/5
UI is horrible 2/5
So buggy…what’s up with the friend/group invites and now having to keep closing out app then open back up for the bracket and score updates.
Can’t log in 2/5
The app itself is great if you’re actually able to get logged in. It will randomly log you out then say your password is incorrect. The recovery process is broken and never works
Bad user interface 1/5
Flow of brackets for pool members is horrible
Not updating 3/5
I’ve used this app for a few years and it’s always worked great. Now it won’t update. I’ll uninstall/reinstall to see if that fixes the problem.
If you go look at the top 4 its the same guy.. with all the same picks… hacking much? Cheating much? Is the app hacking to make them not pay… its pretty sketchy
Can’t turn your phone for full screen. It’s like 2007 with this. Automatic delete! Text me in 30 years when you catch up with technology
Whi is the iPad version worse than the iPhone version??? No bracketcast on iPad?? Come on man!
Wont work 1/5
Imagine the app not working DURING MARCH MADNESS
Not as good 3/5
This app works fine, but it used to highlight your correct picks in green to make them easily identifiable. Disappointing this is no longer the case.
App Not Updating 2/5
App is not updating scores or points and keeps freezing up
Constant glitching - unusable 1/5
Up to date on iOS and on iPhone 13 Pro - app flashes between screens, and shows my first bracket endlessly with an incomplete error. Completely unusable pls fix
Not updating 1/5
App is not updating any scoring after games
Ruined It 1/5
You get nothing but espn news and global brackets. Your specific group status comes up in a 2x4 popup box. CRAP.CRAP.CRAP
Bad and slow 1/5
Maybe the slowest to update the brackets live makes sense tho cause it is made by ESPN
Internal Error? 1/5
You can’t make an app that works?
Not allowing picks 1/5
Says you have till Thursday games to enter but does not accept the entry at 5am Thursday?
Not working 2/5
Try to save a bracket and it says the tournament has started already. (It starts 5 hours from now)
Won’t ever use this app again 1/5
It’s Thursday morning. The games haven’t started yet, but I’m not allowed to even start a bracket? This is ridiculous. I have to fill out a paper bracket? Come on. You’re better than this ESPN
Why is “bracket” not anywhere in the name and why do you take me to 4 different loading pages just to log in
Can’t share brackets 1/5
The app will no longer share your bracket via email. When the recipient of the email clicks on the link it loads a blank bracket. Add that to the spam notifications and this app is now junk.
Trash app 1/5
Can’t print my bracket. Would give negative stars if I could
Trouble downloading 5/5
For some reason it wants me to confirm my Billings information for a free app but anyways I added my card and still nothing no downloading
Unusably slow and laggy 1/5
The amount of lag in the app is unreal. I tried to log in and when I typed my email, the characters didn’t show up on screen until several seconds after I hit the buttons on the keyboard. Given that the login screen was already so bad, I gave up trying to use the app because I can’t imagine the rest of it is much better, and frankly I didn’t have the patience to try and find out.
It’s unfortunate because I was pretty excited to fill out a bracket this year, but trying to use the app just destroyed that excitement
APP GLITCHES CONSTANTLY 1/5
I think it is just for some users, not all, but the app glitches out constantly. Everything on the screen is flashing, all the teams in my bracket are flashing in and out of sight. The different regions flash between saying “West” and “Quad 1” and “East” and Quad 2. I’m hoping the developers see this and fix these bugs. I had the same issue last year, and I have a new phone this year but I still encounter the same problem.
Can we pick for the First Four in future? 4/5
I have loved this app for the past few years. The brackets are simple, easy to fill out, and fun (especially in groups/with friends). I have noticed one thing this year and that is that we can’t pick for the first four. I know the official March Madness app has that feature and I wish that could be carried over here.
luke brown 5/5
By Ms. Booker-Routledge
really cool to guess some of the best basketball teams for fun and get some money$!
Can’t login 1/5
It keeps offering to send me a passcode and when I enter the passcode it circles back to the login screen
Can’t join groups 1/5
Get a “internal error” when I try to join groups. No support will respond with the issue or fix.
My first time making an app 1/5
Oh poop- I forgot the save button.
Ad for ESPN+ 1/5
All of the push notifications (and there’s 5+ per day) are almost exclusively for ESPN+. It’s spam-level promotion
App is crashing immediately upon opening. Useless at the moment.
Functional, but annoying bugs 2/5
By Apex Titan
Just like the main ESPN app, this app is functional but brittle. I left the app in the middle of filling out a bracket, and when I returned a few seconds later, the bracket had been cleared of the selections I made.
Login Button Unresponsive 1/5
This is the only installed app having this issue. Reinstalling doesn’t help, and the Support website won’t load either. Anything on the app to do with logging in won’t recognize a tap and when I found a workaround to get to a sign-in it thinks I don’t have network access, even though Im currently browsing Firefox and was somehow able to submit this review.
Crashes when trying to save bracket 1/5
System needs work 3/5
Not able to save a bracket in progress, have to fully complete it after opening or abandon picks.
Not a fan of the one size fits all scoring system for groups.
This app keeps glitching and I reinstalled it 4 times now and it keeps glitching
App crashes, ridiculously laggy, and I can’t even create a bracket. Like cmon guys. Really? I presume they payed for the 4.8 rating.
glitch w sweepstakes 2/5
there’s a glitch where i hit cancel once when prompted by the sweepstakes bc i wasn’t done w my bracket now i can’t go back in and add in my info to join. please fix :))
It’s 7:05 how can I not make a bracket yet 1/5
Come on man
March madness 5/5
I recommend this app so much it’s so easy to fill out brackets and so fun to compete with friends and family if you haven’t yet get this app
Didn’t let me log in 1/5
The app never lets me log in, I type in my account info and it says “sorry you can’t log in right now”
Amazing app! 5/5
I love this app! Looks great this year and I can not wait to fill out my bracket!
Best Brackets App in the World! 5/5
Hands down the easiest app to use for filling out your brackets and creating a group to play with your friends. We return every year for a reason. It’s almost time for March Madness!!
