Love the app but every time I go to look at the Schedule the app force closes.
If I try to navigate off the main page the app crashes. Annoying.
Ads before Video! 1/5
For what I pay for the annual subscription I shouldn’t have to watch a 30 second ad before every video clip!
Unstable lately 4/5
By Organia Girl
I use this app a lot and love the features. But in the last week or more it locks up constantly and I have to restart or go out and come back in. Very frustrating in the middle of a game.
Team schedule 3/5
I can’t look at my teams schedule, it keeps exiting the app itself, I’ve redownloaded the app to see if it would work but no still does it. Help with this fix
I hope you like the two commercials... 1/5
Because they are going to play between every inning of every game for the entire season. I get that buster posey drives a Toyota; I’ve seen the commercial 1000 times and it’s only June!
Solid MLB News App 3/5
By Must needs coffee
Almost perfect. Easy to navigate and get what you want. Just want to catch the scores of last few game(s)? They’re right there. Got more time to dig into the recaps? Also there. Looking for the latest scoop, the ins and outs throughout the league? Just finger taps away. Articles, videos, recaps, box scores, stats, it’s all there in one clean, easily navigable and customizable app.
My only gripes are:
- it takes a while to load (forgivable given the amount of content, often video, being retrieved).
- 12-28 second adds front nearly every single video, even those 8 second single play highlight clips that are only a fraction of the length of the adds that precede them! I understand the obnoxious reality of intrusive advertising is the way internet content survives, but really!? Does it have to be so imbalanced? This is absurd! Automatic full-star reduction (at minimum) for this.
- the schedule/calendar view has been broken for quite some time now, causing the app to instantly crash and close whenever I click that button to see a whole month at a time. No excuses there. Been weeks, maybe even months now. That’s gotta be fixed. Full-star reduction here too.
Doesn’t work today 2/5
It’s a great app when it works, but today it isn’t working. Why????
Fix the innings skip 3/5
Good overall. Need to fix the innings skip in the line score menu. Almost every time when you try and skip the commercials, it will take you back to a different inning?Really??
Too many ads 1/5
This app is great but it's become harder and harder to put up with. Every video that plays has a 20-30 second ad that you have to watch. Want to watch a second video, guess what, you get to watch another ad. Want to watch the same video again, you guessed it, watch another ad.
Continually Crashes 1/5
If you like an app that will crash your IPad this is it.
After it freezes have to delete and reinstall.
When you check Standings is crashes and "KICKS YOU OUT"
Complained numerous times but I don't even think they do updates???????
Update please 3/5
Loved At Bat for years, latest update is super frustrating as it crashes every time I try to open the schedule for any team.
Auto Shutdown 3/5
Every time I open the schedule in the app the app automatically shuts down. Annoying!
Handy companion when attending a game or for a quick check-in 4/5
By Mad sharki
This is my third year using At Bat. I use it when I am attending a live game so that I can hear the play by play in my ear since we don’t get to hear commentary on the game in the stands. The radio broadcast is almost always significantly behind but that’s usually ok since it gives me a chance to see a play, talk about it a little with my companion, and then hear what the commentators say when they see it.
When I am at home or in the car, I like to be able to pop in to check scores, see replays, or look up stats while I’m watching the game on TV.
The audio quality seems to come and go. Sometimes the ads are extremely loud, other times extremely quiet.
I especially appreciate having the radio broadcast available when a game is blacked out due to a Facebook Live broadcast. I absolutely can’t stand to watch on Facebook, their commentators are a joke. I love having the option to listen to my quality radio broadcast.
I don’t appreciate the fact that I am paying more than I did 3 years ago, but I still use it enough to justify paying the price anyway. I would pay even a little more if I could actually watch a game on the app, but I’m not going to pay the mlb.com price so I’m out of luck there.
Was Great, Crap Now, Should Be Free 1/5
Whatever you did to this app after the first few weeks of the season was not good. App buffers, chops and fails about once an inning. I have Verizon, 35 mbps WiFi at work and 25 mbps WiFi at home and the app won’t work properly. I’ve deleted and reinstalled on all devices. Worked great the first two years I bought the single team subscription and I’d really like my $90 back this year. Very very dissatisfied!
Watch app doesn't update 1/5
It says there are no scheduled games today. There are 14 upcoming games today.
Getting worse with every update 2/5
This app goes into “offline mode” about every 30 seconds. You have to click an “ok” button to acknowledge (what? How is that possibly an issue that requires interrupting the user?). After the, you have to force quit and reopen the app and it works fine. This happens to me on a 100% great connection - no other apps are offline - 15 to 20 times a day.
For something that I pay more than $100 a year to use, and have never had a problem with before this year, it has been incredibly frustrating.
CRASHES IN SCHEDULE MODE 3/5
Love the app BUT can’t stand that every time I click the calendar mode in upper right hand corner on my iPhone X the entire app crashes. Otherwise it’s great but this is worth a two star deduction
Waste of money 1/5
By I was ripped off!!!!
I decided to pay the $80 yearly subscription because my cable company doesn’t carry ATT SportsNet, but only to discover that every game is blacked out both home and away. It does matter if I am traveling out of state or using VPN, the blackout appears to be at the national level.
Things that make you go hmmm. 1/5
I am a little confused as to why I paid to watch live, when all games I try to watch are restricted due to “black-out”. Not sure what I actually paid for.
Batting Averages 5/5
I love the MLB app! Please add the player’s AVG to the lineup list like shown for the bench players
No good. Waste of time and money. Too many ads yahoo has more info and more videos.
"Offline mode" 3/5
Constantly get that annoying message when I open the app. Even if I'm connected to WiFi. I have to disable then reenable WiFi in order for it to work. Please fix.
Generally good app but... 3/5
By PJ in SD
This is generally a good app but, as of late, whenever I try to see the schedule (upper right hand button) it blanks and kicks me out of the app!
Granted I am a Cubs fan (of 35 years) and that may have something to do with it.
Bug report 4/5
I like this app, but it has a bug. The standings aren’t always correct. 6/15/2018, yankees are in 2nd place, down by 1 game. The app shows them in 1st, up by 1 game. The records are correct, but the calculation of games back is flawed.
Great app but little bugs are annoying 4/5
This app is great for following your favorite team. I love being able to watch the games from anywhere with the mlb.tv subscription. With that being said the one thing I don’t like is that it won’t update on my watch. The score doesn’t auto update as a complication and when accessing the app, it’ll say that there’s no game that day even though there are.
Good, Loads Very Slow 3/5
This app is great, and tells me all the baseball info I need. My one criticism is that it is constantly loading and needs to be refreshed often.
If you have an old iPad, don't bother with updates. Mine quit working, won't even load after installing the latest update. I left notification of the issue to MLB. They never responded.
Crashes then won’t even open 1/5
By Nor calmly
Very unstable, closes spontaneously. Eventually wouldn’t even open. Had to delete and reload to restore but same problems are back. Waiting on an explanation from MLB...
Crashes Constantly 1/5
How does this app get 4.8/5 stars when it crashes all the time? Great content but if you have to re-open 5 or 6 times to watch a game it is a problem.
UPDATE: now crashes every couple of minutes. I have called support multiple times (they always recommend deleting/reinstalling which works for about a day). DO NOT BUY.
Cannot get past the splash screen 1/5
As others have noted, I was getting a crash about 1/2 the time opening f on a notification. Now (multiple days through device restarts and an iOS update) I’m stuck at the spinner on the initial splash screen.
App crashes on iOS 11.4 if you click the schedule icon 4/5
Title says it all. Every time I click the schedule icon in the top right hand corner, the app crashes. I am using an iPhone 7 on iOS 11.4.
Not bad 3/5
By Anthony Adamo
I enjoy this app. I have an iPhone 8s plus. Every time I try to open the schedule it closes the app. It used to work fine. Everything else works as it should. It would be nice if they could fix this bug.
Needs update. 1/5
App works fine most of the time but the last 2 weeks it will not open. Come on MLB.
Crashes every time I open schedule 1/5
App crashes every time I click on schedule
So Slow 1/5
This app loads content so slow. Better off using Safari than his junk.
Overall LOVE for the app 5/5
App is great! Coverage is great! Feed always great! Pricing options great!
One con: as of recent app force quits on state up, and when looking at schedule. Doesn’t matter what team, cannot view schedule.
Great but one request 5/5
This app is every mlb fans dream, but I have one small request, can you add the stat WAR to the stats page?
Normally great but now won’t open 3/5
Normally great but now won’t open
Love the app but very unstable 4/5
App will crash anytime I try to open the schedule. Have had to delete and redownload a couple times to get app to even open. Often has issues starting playback and asks each month for me to re-enter my password.
Schedule Crashing 3/5
Every time I try to look at schedules, the app crashes and force closes
Calendar crashes the app 1/5
By No H Pitt
Looks like the calendar crashes the app again. Cmon MLB. Get those little nerdy guys working on this.
Now, I can go back to hating you!
The schedule function works great. Thanks for repairing this annoying bug!!!
Now, I can go back to loving this app!
This needs to be fixed. Great app, except for the crashing bug when viewing any team’s schedule/calendar.
Rating will change when this bug is repaired.
The most recent update today (5/14/2018) did not fix the bug.
Slow loading time 1/5
Streaming the game has been fine. But on my iPhone 6S and iPad 6th gen, it takes a while for the load time. Even on 100 MBPS WiFi.
I paid $90 just to watch one team’s games. Totally worth every penny - if it would actually stream the video. Instead it’s constantly refreshing/loading whatever and then will just cut out all together. I have excellent WiFi, watch streamed movies etc all the time with no problem. This app makes me very frustrated and I feel like I paid nearly a hundred bucks to watch a spinning icon in the middle of my screen. I expect WAY better from MLB.
Apple watch app Does Not Work 2/5
By Squatting Hen
Please. Please please fix the watch app. It hasn't worked for months.
Fire TV vs iPad viewing 3/5
I’m a subscriber through the TMobile offer. When I watch games on my iPad the stream is great-very little to no buffering. When I try to watch on my tv through my Fire Stick the buffering is ridiculous. It’s the same internet service so I’m not sure why there’s such a difference. I live outside my team’s market so it’s this or nothing if I want to see my team play. I’d really like to watch on a screen larger than my iPad.
Absolute Must Get 5/5
I follow baseball pretty intensely across a lot of different platforms, but this one is truly my favorite. Highlights, news, and lots of great content. I have the $20/yr plan and it works great for me as a college student who spends a lot of the season away from a tv (I tune in to the radio while doing homework or something). Could not recommend more.
Not a good app in the free version 1/5
not a very accurate app.always messing up on balls and strikes on the free version not sure how the paid version is hopefully better than the free version
Don’t buy it 1/5
Unless you watch every game don’t buy or subscribe.
MLB said cubs game were not blacked out in my area only white Sox and St. Louis. They said they would fix the problem all they did was ignore me. Bad customer service through mlb. Not worth the money.
It’s a joke. 1/5
By Chicago Irish
They want you to spend $3 bucks on this every month?!?!? Not worth it at all. It’s a joke!!!!
