One star 1/5
By Review guy 467
This app simply has a boring layout plain and simple. Sorry I tried it out for a while it’s just the app is sooo plain & lacking appeal.
Getting a little better... 2/5
By Weather pain
So I love how when you click on the news or standings buttons, it carries you to the correct league. Now it needs to be done for the scoreboard. There’s no excuse on why I have to click around to the correct league just to get the correct scoreboard. Please fix this. Thank you!
2020 hindsight, please 1/5
By Anon E Muse
Can the 2020 season update please return to the 2018 season’s version of the app? You know, back when it actually worked and wasn’t just a glorified web browser.
Don’t download 1/5
This app used to be good but not anymore
It works, but I hoped for better 3/5
By Me name danny
As a die hard fan of the Seattle Mariners (and baseball in general) I decided to get the MLB’s official app for Minor League Baseball so I could enjoy the novelty of my favorite team actually having a competitive farm system for once. I hoped it would be much like MLB At Bat, an app which I consider the gold standard for all sports apps, but I soon discovered this was not the case. While I understand that the Minor Leagues do not generate nearly as much revenue as the MLB does and that there is more than five times the amount of teams to track, I still expected a higher quality app.
My main problem with this app is that it relies too much on links to do everything. This is always big turnoff for me, but I am usually willing to look past it depending on how useful the actual app is and if the links actually work. Unfortunately, I discovered that basically the only thing the First Pitch is good for is shortcuts to different parts of milb.com. Roughly three quarters or more of the app is accessed by using links. My load times are long and videos do not usually load. I realize that complete abstinence from the usage of links in sports apps is impossible, but I did not expect it to be this bad.
A lot of the reviews I read before downloading this app complained (quite loudly) about how much better this app was a while ago. Just about the only positive reviews this app has gotten are years old. I just recently got this app so I have no idea what I missed out on, but judging on the current state of the app and all the one-star reviews I safely assume I missed quite a lot.
Overall, I will continue to use this app (no matter how bad it is) and hope that the developers someday get their act together and make this app worthwhile to use.
UPDATE: After using it for most of the season, MILB is tolerable. It needs some work, but it’s all we have. I also wish you would add a section for the AFL (Arizona Fall League)
Not so good 1/5
It’s that radio coverage is free. Except that it isn’t. You have to download a separate app and pay $10 a month to get “free” audio. Likewise, TV coverage is limited depending upon the team or teams you choose to follow. All and all it’s not worth it. Too bad because I would gladly use the MiLB app if it was useful.
View live? 1/5
Check in 3/5
By Lemon badger
Need a CHECK IN option like the MLB app for those who travel all over. Also add pictures ( old MLB app way)
Love it 5/5
Love using it to track the Lowell Spinners and Pawsocks
Keeps getting better, but.... 1/5
By True Voice of Reason
How do you not have Apple TV support? It seems like a no-brainer. I do like the subtle changes in the latest update; like iPhone X support and the customizable icon. I have a lot of friends that play minor league baseball and TV support would be epic. Please add this feature soon, seems like a fair trade off for a loyal annual $50 investment.
How can an app get worse? It’s basically a glorified front for a poorly designed MiLB website. It’s very clunky and hard to navigate. It’s nearly impossible to find the radio and television options. The Gameday feature is difficult to locate, the stats are hard to find, the schedule code is written backwards. I’m trying to be more and more positive about things, but this is not making it easy. Please fix or you can count me out for a renewal.
By Pee Wee 54
Actually a really good app for tracking the MiLB games. My only complaint is that if you are listening to any audio on your phone, and then open/refresh the app, it turns off your audio.
Ruined a good app. It’s now garbage. 1/5
Garbage reskinned mobile website. Lazy and cheap developers.
Cancelling Subscription is impossible 1/5
My boyfriend used to play in the minors, so I got the app to watch him. I’ve been trying to cancel this service for over a year now and have followed the instructions provided in the app and CANNOT get them to cancel the service. I’m charged every month and have followed all instructions... multiple times. They make it impossible to cancel. Next step is reporting the app to my bank and filing a fraud claim.
Games keep freezing and streaming stops 1/5
I like watching minor league baseball games, but it is very frustrating that I can not watch a game with out it freezing and the stoping during the game that makes it hard to watch and follow a game. I am trying to watch the Reno Aces game. Also, I was wondering if MiLB can made available on Apple TV or Fire TV please?
This update is brutal 1/5
Why? Who is the seven year old who changed the app???
Score are not up to date class a advanced and class a please fix. Last update mess it up I like the app.
Worst sports I have ever used 1/5
Words cannot even express how terrible this app is. None of it works right and layout does not even begin to make sense. Don't waste time trying to use it.
The Absolute Worst 1/5
Whoever is running MiLB is a complete idiot ... it’s almost as if they don’t want you to be interested in minor league baseball.
Go back to the former version 1/5
By Home base fan
I would give this app a -5 star rating but the review process doesn’t go that low. There wasn’t anything wrong with the previous version. Who ever changed it would mess up a one car funeral.
Can’t leave well enough alone. Ain’t broke? Don’t fix. 1/5
Whoever your UI design person is? Fire them. The app is essentially unusable. Has anyone there heard of landscape orientation? You know like when I’m watching the Games? New for 2019? Improved navigation? NOT!!!!!!!!!
It's like they didn't know the season was starting ... 1/5
This app is garbage. You're better off just going to the mobile webpage. And that's not a good option either.
Still trash. Interface is completely unusable.
What happened? 1/5
This used to be a nice app that was user friendly and functioned just as well as the MLB version. This season the app has been changed and is basically worthless.
Just change it back! You’ve made this app much worse.
Good app 1/5
Omg I like how they update this this was great how they add new teams like armadillo sod poodles and Las Vegas aviators
Go back to the old app 1/5
This app is complete garbage. Bring the old version back.
This app is trash 1/5
I paid 50 bucks to watch my rangers young players. And it won’t stop buffering and being terrible. I’m sick. Why did u change it?
was good, now it’s terrible. 1/5
By nick tread
I have a relative who has played at various levels in the minor leagues since 2012. This was a good app, but for 2019 they have undergone a total overhaul. If their intentions were to make schedules, stats, etc complicated and hard to find, then they succeeded.
Baseball in general has lost connection with its fans, and this app is just another example of that.
Poorly designed. Hard to navigate and view stats or standings. Last few years checked the app frequently . This year it’s getting deleted
Worst App 1/5
This App is legit pathetic. Major League Baseball should be embarrassed. It’s impossible to navigate scores and everything else you have to do.
Horrible App 1/5
This app hasn't worked one time since buying the subscription and they won't refund my money. BUYER BEWARE!
This app is horrible 1/5
I can’t use this app like I did a couple years ago. I only can get games on my computer. Time to delete!!
Change it back 1/5
This app used to be great to tracking my favorite minor league players in game day, seeing pitch by pitch what happened. Now, it takes you to a link that doesn’t load for me in the app. All links in the app take you to safari and the links don’t load. Change it back to the way it was, it was so much better then.
No rotation for iPad? You kidding me? 1/5
You think people only use this on a phone? Wake up!
Used to be great 1/5
I used to use this app every day to check all sorts of games and stats, HOWEVER, they’ve made an update this year in 2019 in which the app is utterly and completely useless. The way to view schedules are garbage, you can’t view them by game, finding player stats and info is very difficult now, and overall this app is complete trash. If they want people to continue using it they better revert back to the old ways, because this is an absolute joke for an app in 2019.
Update: The reviews about how much everyone hates the changes to this app continue to pour in, yet there is no effort of any change on MiLB’s part. This is a pathetic excuse for an app compared to what was our last year and before. I continue to only use a computer to check minor league stats and standings as the way the app is designed is so utterly poor it is unusable. Revert back to the old changes or continue to lose attention from fans you desperately need.
By Beau purdy
It used to be really good, not any more. Please go back to old app, was way better.
This app stinks 1/5
This is the biggest joke in the history of improving apps. They previous app was great. This app is total wash. This app is dumber than wearing eye black during night games.
App needs to be redone 1/5
This is the worst app. To open up a game you have to select game day which is so small and not clear on where to push. They should probably make it look more like a button. When you need to change you password it doesn’t tell you your account information so if you can’t remember it at the time it’s a huge pain.
When you have to change games it’s also very annoying to bounce back and forth. I have selected my 2 teams.... don’t show me the others, it’s not helpful.
Please re-do this app
Could be the worst app I have ever had! Nope...it is the worst app I have ever had on my phone.
You’re lucky that this clunky mess doesn’t have any competition.
You took an awesome app that was extremely user friendly and turned it into a jumbled mess where everything just send you to the website extremely disappointed in the changes and really hoping it changes back
App drains battery 1/5
When you open the app, it takes over the audio but no audio is played. I’m assuming this has something to do with the SIGNIFICANT battery drain on my iOS device. Both iPhone 10 and iPad. Can’t use it anymore. Needs to be fixed! Beware
Worst app ever 1/5
You might as well shut the app down. It’s a redirect to a website. Not sure why you change it? It’s totally useless now.
Horrible App 1/5
By Nice App For custom actions
Don’t bother installing. Does nothing you can’t already do. First thing it wants is for you to pay a monthly fee that is more expensive than any streaming service that gives you more than just baseball.
Deleted the “App” 1/5
This is not an “App”, it’s just a fancy looking set of bookmarks. Shame on you MLB Advanced Media. This has ruined the minor league experience so much so that I’m not following this season. If I wanted bookmarks, I’d just add them to my browser. You’re losing ad revenue because I refuse to waste my time on such a poor product.
You know when baseball is trying to bring in more fans this is telling them that we don’t take you seriously and/or we don’t really want you. There is nothing useful about this app, sorry quick links page. If it were an app it wouldn’t send me to a browser.
If this app is a push to get me to buy milb.tv then that is a serious fail as well. I have limited dollars. I’m not giving them to such a poor fan experience.
App mess 1/5
What an absolute disaster of an app redesign. Furthermore, do you not understand the need for commonality between Milb and MLB apps?! Fire the PM and designer....and revert to previous design. ASAP!
Don’t try to fix what isn’t broken 1/5
I don’t know what else to say. MLB’s At Bat platform is a well-designed, efficient way to look at everything. MiLB’s new app design is horrendous and I actively avoid using it in the new format.
You had one job.
Less than zero 1/5
I detest this app. Just a link to a website, has little useful information. Was good last year, but this version is horrible ... just horrible. I already canceled my MiLB.TV subscription because of it.
Practically unusable 1/5
I want my money back. This app is just full of glitches. I can’t watch games without tons of skipping around and pausing. Just terrible.
absolute trash 1/5
this app was decent last year, but the new update has ruined it. it’s the worst app i have on my phone & i dread using it.
A ten year old could make a better app 1/5
If you subscribe for the live telecast you have to log in every time you want to watch. No options to keep you logged in.
DO NOT DOWNLOAD 1/5
By Dominic Cotroneo
WORST UPDATE EVER.
No box scores for AZL?? It’s 2019! This should be easy!
