It’s dead - the price has gone up and it’s just a retread of national professional sports coverage now. Enjoy the free podcasts. Dump the sub.
Recently added live/box scores, which was done very well. Deleted the other app I’d use for scores/stats. Hopefully they’ll add player stats soon, too. When viewing a box score, I wish I could tap a player & be brought to a Player Page with relevant stories, stats, game logs, etc. I’m sure that must be on the roadmap. FWIW, I think The Score app does this well, and I especially like that they link to the related player’s basketball/baseball/etc-reference page for expanded stats (saving The Score from having to show too many stats themselves) with an in app browser.
Hard to cancel subscription. Automatic renewal whether you want or not.
I’d love to be able to check score here other than espn. Can we somehow get this going?
The new Scores tab seems really nice, although I have a few requests. 1. Let me swipe left and right to go back or forward a day. 2. Let me limit it to only teams and leagues I follow. Making me scroll past a thousand MLB games just to get to the WNBA scores is torturous.
Keeps locking me out even though I payed and the app shows I paid up for a year. Already contacted customer support and got a Chatbot to help.
Today I went on and three stories were just teasers. Then I went away. Please do better.
Great articles and a really nice UI that is easy to navigate. There are some performance hitches though - i.e. lags a little when scrolling certain sections. Would love an option for a scores widget in addition to the stories widget.
The first page of an article shows up, scrolling for the next page shows a blank page.
