The Athletic App Reviews

  • Great

    By JD in Minneapolis
    This review is not worth reading. The app is great. 1 gazillion times better than ESPN app.
  • Trash app don’t waste your time!!!

    By painterguydonnie
    This app is incredibly aggravating! I signed up for the personal account then it goes back to select teams and leagues I’m interested in. I think it just glitches and maybe it didn’t go through so I do it again but now it says my email is already registered. I try to skip the sign up and it won’t let me. But it also won’t give me an option to sign in to my supposedly existing account. If I could give zero stars I would.
  • Like it so far

    By Sethrb85
    Only complaint I have is the lack of some content. Would like to see college baseball, and golf coverage. I’m excited to see this app grow.
  • Doesn’t work

    By scrappy bill
    I spent 5 minutes in a loop asking me for my email and name. Finally gave up.
  • Fantastic writing, coverage, and insights!

    Worth the money. Enthusiastic Buy, buy, buy!
  • Isles coverage

    By Marco9673
    That was a great article . And though I agree with some of the backlash isles fan tend to get I do find it funny that u have to jump through hoops to see an islander highlight , They barely get coverage but I’m fine playing the underdog roll as long as we keep trucking through the league .
  • Bud Bender a True Browns Fan!

    I am not a writer like he’s not a head coach, but I love him! Never been an “I” guy, he is the kind of coach that you would run through a brick wall! Go Browns!
  • Prospects and analytics

    By M-Tizzle
    The content is pretty solid. I would say it has been worth the subscription fee for the most part. The thing The Athletic is severely lacking in though is MLB prospect coverage. There is little to none that I have seen. It would be nice if they could hire away a top guy like Kiley McDaniel to start prospect/draft coverage. They get a guy like that and their subs will go way up and their content would truly be top notch. They also don’t really use any analytics in the analysis. They need to hire a couple of guys that can do pieces based on analytics and projections. They add that and they would have far and away the best sports coverage out there. There wouldn’t be any need to go elsewhere. Hopefully they can work something out like this in the future, only thing that is making me think of not renewing my subscription.

    If you miss sports journalism, you will find great writing here.
  • Superb app

    By FuseduleTecil
    A well developed app with excellent writing for the NFL and MLB. Worth every penny for a subscription.
