Great design but......

The app has content links to other publications such as the LA Times, WASH Post etc....often you need to be a subscriber to these other newspapers in order to read the article.
NBA Scores Way Behind
by CRich321 on 2019/11/16 02:41
Spurs game tonight shows 8 minutes left in the fourth with all the stats still frozen at that part of the game. The game is already over.
Seriously
by fnrediculous on 2019/11/15 23:53
I like getting updates on my players and team status but not at 6 am and even 11 pm ??? F#u%c*king Seriously !!! Knock it off !
With video Autoplay on, it gets deleted
by SK350 on 2019/11/14 11:47
Its now 11/14/19 and up to 3 days ago, I enjoyed this app. Now, even with video Autoplay turned off in settings, a video advertisement starts anytime I click on a linked article. I have it off for a reason. I use my phone to read in quiet places and can’t have a video start at high volume without my knowledge. I am going to delete this app and try reloading it. If that works, then I will change my review. If not then I’ll delete the app. This is something specific to the current version released on 11/11/19. This wasn’t a problem before.
Great work
by usudjdjdj on 2019/11/13 02:48
I love it!It is the best thing anyone could ever create.Thank you so so much for this amazing app!
Great except for Widget
by brian_120173 on 2019/11/12 22:03
This is the best sports app around. Love the dark mode and use of team colors...however, the widget needs to be updated for dark mode. Needs to be black background not grey. Thanks.
Buggy and crashes constantly
by jggibbs3 on 2019/11/12 04:36
Crashes every few minutes. Audio plays well after I quit the app. Overall, latest update is quite terrible.
Used to be the best scoring app
by slimpicken on 2019/11/12 03:21
Starting a few updates ago, whenever the app is OPEN, my WiFi speed on my phone goes berserk. I noticed it because scores were loading very slowly or not at all. Speed test shows that Speed on my phone diminishes immensely and latency skyrockets when the app is OPEN. No other app does this to my phone’s internet speed. Can’t use this app until it’s fixed. Why would it have any effect on my WiFi speed stability?? I haven’t even tried it on cellular. Yahoo please figure it out.
Frozen stream
by veryj MB cdgh on 2019/11/12 01:43
Does anyone else have a problem with streaming games? I have an iPhone 5s, which I understand is obsolete for smartphone users, but when I stream prime time games the video freezes and the app shuts down.
I have a problem
by NeoJV on 2019/11/11 00:08
Im starting to have a problem with getting in the app. When i try, it says “sorry things seem to be slow”. I deleted it 5 times and downloaded it again. Its still doesn’t work.
One star so far
by Scallop Holden on 2019/11/10 20:03
This app is a virus. You think you closed it in the app switcher? Wrong it’s running in the background. Want to look at a sports article on yahoo in a web browser? It will open the stupid app I literally delete it ever Monday
Cast videos?
by RonDawg711 on 2019/11/10 16:48
Can this app cast live games to my chrome cast ?
What happened to the lines on the games?
by Goterps79 on 2019/11/09 01:25
Not seeing any?
Notification Sounds all the same
by Bdharp85 on 2019/11/07 01:03
I’ve been using this app for maybe 10 years now. All of a sudden all the alert tones are the same. There used to be a distinct sound for game specific alerts such as a game starting and a different sound for league news. Now all my tones are the same and it makes me think games are starting all throughout the day. If this isn’t fixed soon I’ll find a different app.
Crashes Frequently
by Voltemond on 2019/11/04 03:58
Good GUI, crashes often.
Trash
by Dxrk Knight on 2019/11/04 02:25
Kicks you out every time you watch a video after a minute or two in
Fix notifications
by FBgetsthebird on 2019/11/03 22:37
Love the app, but the options to turn off notifications don’t work (specifically Fantasy Slate results).
Local only 😫
by 37thTimeisaCharm on 2019/11/03 22:29
If you’re like me and love an “out of network” team don’t bother to download. Also many ads and fair amount of buffering if you’re able to watch your game... 😢
Autoplay of the featured football game...
by Giuliani on 2019/11/03 21:01
In the box score section makes the app slow. I have to wait for the video to load before i can swipe down to look at scores and upcoming games. Very annoying. I’m also not a fan of the swipe UI decision to switch between scores, news etc. The app often misinterprets a scrolling motion down for a swipe across. Drives me nuts. Is there a way for you to adjust the length of the swipe motion because any slight lateral motion seems to be recognized as a swipe.
More like “Fake Phone Football”
by BurnDaddy69 on 2019/11/03 15:08
Total crap. Very wonky to begin with, then doesn't even stream on iPad. When they say it streams on tablet they must mean the junk Android type. Got it to stream on my phone for about a minute before huge buffering issues. Uninstalled this junk. Time for Yahoo to go bye bye for good!
Best sports app
by meghan72015 on 2019/11/03 14:29
I’ve been using this app for 10 years, hands down the best sports app out there. It’s easy to use and super helpful. I set up alerts and you can filter just to see your favorite teams. It keeps me up to date with news and stats. You get to watch free live games all the time (games you actually want to watch) this is one of the only apps where the ads on it aren’t completely annoying.
Great Sports App
by rhnyP on 2019/11/01 14:32
Fast, easy, comprehensive. It’s my go-to sports app. Love the Watch feature.
Settings are ignored
by Baptistpreacherph on 2019/11/01 01:24
I had to delete the app because I couldn’t get it to respond to my settings. It wouldn’t open to where I set it to open. Also, I set it to never auto play videos and yet videos would play automatically
Horrible
by mkgrundy on 2019/10/31 15:08
I hope you want your phone flooded with notifications that you cannot turn off. That's all this app is good for. I downloaded to keep up on two teams. I selected those teams and what notifications I want but I get everything still. Phone is blowing up all day. No thanks. Uninstall!
notifications for favorite teams won’t save
by capitalheel on 2019/10/31 02:43
how has this not been addressed in a version for at least a year now?
New update pauses music, annoying
by ugaguy496 on 2019/10/30 15:01
This app is by far my favorite sports app! But the most recent update causes music that’s playing to be paused upon opening the app, which is pretty annoying...
Keeps changing notification setting to show the fantasy slate
by Trumani on 2019/10/29 23:56
I keep turning off the notification setting for the fantasy slate and it keeps turning back on by itself.
Notifications
by Frostyglen on 2019/10/29 23:38
I’ve turned off ALL notifications and still continually get pings on my phone. Tried support on the app and just get errors. The app itself is awesome, but lack of support and constant harassment rates a 1star
Incredibly frustrating
by Stoneman9284 on 2019/10/28 19:42
This app is fine, as long as you’re not a soccer fan. But they are constantly adding things to my list of favorite sports so I have to manually remove the things I don’t want to see every time I use the app. I hate it. Edit to add: feedback function in the app doesn’t work. It freezes when you hit the submit button.
FANTASY SLATE?
by Brown recluse64 on 2019/10/28 04:25
Is there no longer fantasy slate picks for cash? Used to be very fun feature. It was the main thing i used this app for.
Streaming doesn’t even work
by LiL InFaMouS on 2019/10/28 01:23
Went to watch just one live game; it just buffered. The entire time. I have great service, so that isn’t the issue.
Widget changes/updates to make it better
by Mombo Jambo on 2019/10/27 17:46
I’d like to see a change/update on the widget that actually says the day of the week. ESPN widget has the day and date of my team’s upcoming games and it’s easier to know what day it actually falls on and I don’t have to look at the calendar to see what day of the week games fall on when looking ahead. Listing the tv channels games are on would also be VERY helpful, as ESPN does that and lets me know the channel/network the game is being broadcast. Would also like to see the over/under line from the widget as well. I’ve been using Yahoo sports app for a few weeks and like it, and seeing those changes/updates would get me to delete ESPN from my phone and use Yahoo entirely.
Can’t submit feedback in the app
by Conman_33 on 2019/10/27 02:21
Currently you can’t send feedback in the app so I have to do it here. You can’t see basketball scores when they’re at 100+ points. It just shows 1... if this could be updated as well as being able to provide feedback in the app then that’d be great.
Yahoo sports app
by demo #1 on 2019/10/26 17:25
This is the best app ever if you’re looking for a app that won’t let you down this app is the one.great I mean really great
App freezes on NBA
by Boston2Santiago on 2019/10/26 14:44
When I tap on NBA, app freezes and I have to force-quit. Please fix. <Update: They fixed it!>
In Game
by nflchamp0102jj on 2019/10/25 20:02
Does this app show the actual football field diagram, and the football moving as the teams move the ball forward while the game is live and going ?
NWSL Replays
by steerpike77 on 2019/10/24 19:23
The NWSL replays should have a feature that remembers the point you last watched a game and resume.
Terrible
by BourbonDaddy on 2019/10/24 16:11
Hate Yahoo! They are slow on updates and have terrible info. Also don’t know how to classify injuries ! Terrible for sports leagues use ESPN !
Cool app but it keeps freezing, even with a new phone
by please uddate app on 2019/10/24 04:00
Thanks in advance for updating app!
Terrible
by Dj Brian Thomas on 2019/10/24 02:10
This app has gone downhill quickly!
This app is awesome
by mikey123477228 on 2019/10/24 01:07
This app is great because now that there was an update all bugs are fixed. Also, this sports app has some football games that you can watch live! Next you can read articles bet on teams to win games, and watch replays. So that’s why I think this app is great.
Freezing on NBA
by CNoteEZ on 2019/10/24 01:05
Can’t scroll thru NBA
Keeps freezing
by Trvrballard on 2019/10/24 00:33
Amazing how yahoo can take a fine, working app and just completely take a fat dump all over it
Used to be an awesome app
by Jpetrou2 on 2019/10/24 00:15
Long my favorite sports app but with the latest update video auto plays with the sound on? That's some ESPN level BS. Reconsider this choice, Verizon.
How to get 5 stars
by Gioo559 on 2019/10/23 23:56
I would give it a 5 stars but you guys need to work on the quality I have unlimited LTE and the quality isn’t good
4 star but still a great app
by Josh Dee 08 on 2019/10/23 22:19
I gave this app 4 stars only because the comment section on the games can be glitchy but besides that a lot of good things about this app. I like how easy it is too see scores and keep track of your picks with the pick tracker. I also like the slates picks weekly and could win money
Great App
by Allyhey on 2019/10/23 19:51
Thank you so much for creating this app. It really helps me keep track of my favorite teams. Highly recommended.
Awful
by T. Spencer on 2019/10/23 16:37
It’s awful now bc they took off the stories. There is only two reasons I have this and the major one is the look at the stories. I’m deleting this app.
I hope you like unwanted push notifications
by d5m8 on 2019/10/22 23:40
If you allow push notifications, you are going to get plenty even if you turn off all of the options. All I want are game reminders, but I get multiple notifications a day for league news that I do not care about. I feel like the app developers are abusing the access to my attention I gave them.
Great App! But...
by Dredden76 on 2019/10/20 23:17
Whoever is in charge of the “Recent Plays” (NFL) DO BETTER!!
Latest Update Shuts Down App
by Catnpup on 2019/10/20 22:52
The latest update shuts down the app on NFL scores.
Keeps shutting down
by Dellaneva on 2019/10/20 17:48
I don’t know how many times I’ve tried to watch a game and the app keeps closing on its own. I’d give this app zero stars if I could with how unreliable it is.
Worst app ever
by Izzy908 on 2019/10/20 17:15
Every single week I wait to watch my favorite NFL team on here, every single week it never is streaming and not available and says I need to sign up for fubu tv. What good is having this app if you can’t even use it what it was meant for. Don’t download this garbage app
Outstanding .
by GodwinAustin on 2019/10/20 17:15
Thank you Yahoo.
Yahoo Sports
by Trout Favorite Player on 2019/10/20 06:54
Long time user of the yahoo apps including this one. Love the app. Just one suggestion though. Can we add NHL highlights and game recaps since we have all the other sports. That would be great. Thanks.
Outdated
by Mickmeister17 on 2019/10/19 17:06
The articles are biased and terrible. Plus, the sports icons are so outdated for some teams. I mean c’mon, 7 games in and you STILL have the University of Pittsburgh with wrong color scheme for example. Nice job keeping up to date Yahoo.
Good besides the buffering
by GOLDY020510 on 2019/10/19 04:12
App is good but it keeps buffering... that’s the only problem!!!! If there is a way to fix it... please put it in a update....
Notifications
by smf72 on 2019/10/19 01:26
You can't receive notifications on more then one device.
Terrible for NBA
by hardylj on 2019/10/18 08:32
This app is great for nfl live games you can watch for free but BBC why does it not have live games for free for nba games they make you have to pay $200 for league pass that ridiculous you need to change that! NBA games should be free just like the nfl is that’s my only problem
Yahoo sports app
by Twowordsgotbud on 2019/10/17 12:59
Highlight the scoring plays in the nba
Free Football!!!
by Jimmy GarapaGOAT on 2019/10/17 06:29
I can watch all locals nfl teams. Amazing
Best sports app hands down
by Adambadam on 2019/10/17 03:43
Yahoo Sports has been the best sports app for a long time but it was cemented in my mind this week when I emailed them for a feature request and they got back to me the same day and promised it would be incorporated into the next update. Four days later, the update was out and my request had been added! Awesome work Yahoo Sports team.
Surprised how great this app is!
by akief8795 on 2019/10/17 01:47
I already have a plethora of sports apps and this app just takes it to another level. I never miss any of the biggest news drops and stay up to date on all the latest sports news. This app is a must for any avid sports fan. I love the interface and the way it’s set up, and being able to watch live NFL games for free is gold.
Spam
by jimjam1001010 on 2019/10/13 20:35
I don’t want this link, I wanna watch sport
Poor streaming
by Johnny 3 balls on 2019/10/13 19:01
The app is fine for checking scores but streaming live events is disappointing. Half the time it just doesn’t load.
Inappropriate ads
by Blue boy 567 on 2019/10/13 13:30
The ads on the app are regularly of some in underwear. Not fit for families.
Turning Turdish
by Zoomish on 2019/10/12 23:50
In the past 6 months this app has gotten worse and worse. Slow score updates, alerts rarely work when turned on. Comment guidelines are overly restrictive. Complete lack of customer service.
Yahoo
by ktr1124 on 2019/10/11 21:01
Can you watch live nba games on this app?
Best for Live Streaming
by mrAssman on 2019/10/09 23:03
Way better than the spammy NFL app, quickly loads a live game even on my old android tablet.. which was a stuttery mess on the official NFL app.
Going down hill ...
by 10malman10 on 2019/10/09 13:06
Use to be my favorite app! But lately the “info” button on the individual “favorite team” screens doesn’t load. For a couple of weeks I would just come back. A few minutes and all was well. However this week it has gone over a day without loading. All other options on the app seem to be working fine. I just can’t read stories on my favorite teams ....
What happened to this app
by Dodge555 on 2019/10/09 11:08
No news stories under nfl teams pages very little stories under league page yahoo keeps getting worse
Great app
by Evilagut on 2019/10/08 23:19
Love this app and yahoo since the 90’s best info best everything
Awesome and keeps getting better
by Dr. K. Noisewater9 on 2019/10/08 02:03
I’ve been a fan of yahoo sports for years now and I love that I can watch the NFL on the app, great work guys.
Can’t watch live games...Hoax!
by LackToastNTallOreRent on 2019/10/06 20:13
Yeah let’s download this and it not show any live games. Went to NFL and nothing shows live while games are on. What a joke
Great app
by JohnnyBuckLDEM on 2019/10/06 18:18
I've had the for a long time, never been disappointed. It's easy to navigate you get instant news on all sports and times. It's the only Sports app I have on my I phone.
iPad
by Justin3547 on 2019/10/06 18:14
It says I can watch live NFL games on both my iPhone or iPad but yet the app won’t let me watch games on my iPad
Best sports app for most sports.
by Jctusa2011 on 2019/10/06 01:10
I’ve been using this app since it was called Sportacular. It’s THE best app I’ve ever used for NFL football by far. Has many streaming games along with play by play and up to date scores. Great news stories, recaps, etc. Very good for college football, NBA and college football. Pretty good for BPL. Only disappointment has been golf where scores tend to lag way behind, but app is worth 5 stars plus on basis of football alone!
Sports tab
by LSUfanintigahland on 2019/10/05 18:34
Would like to have the ability to move certain sports above others. For example I’d like to move college football to the top, followed by nfl, then baseball and then NBA. Then be able to rearrange college to bottom when the season is over
Too much advertising
by B-House on 2019/10/05 16:20
Way too much advertising. All have some buy this is overboard. Deleted the app.
Great app
by Chill102003 on 2019/10/04 18:30
It is my favorite sports app. It’s clean and easy to navigate and somewhat customizable. Only change I’d make is, to put the tv channel it’s being aired on for each game on the info without having to actually click into the game stats/info. Other than that, it’s the only app I use to check scores and follow games.
Complete BS
by Kenny.garner on 2019/10/04 03:18
Fully functioning iPad. Apple refuses to support.
Best sports app
by Gamecocks21 on 2019/10/03 23:33
Way better than espn or bleacher report. Some are the original articles are stupid but that’s the world we live in. Not a fan of the new color of the app logo after the update tho
Suffers from US-centric neglect
by Malkamachine on 2019/10/03 18:46
The app might have been rated of higher quality 5 years ago but this is 2019. Seems to be suffering from neglect consistent with Yahoo’s overall demise. The Europa league organizes teams into groups similar to the champions league, yet somehow year after year the product team at Yahoo can’t implement this in the app. Instead all 32 teams are listed in one massive league table. Embarrassing. If you guys ever get around to making that one simple change, perhaps also enable the user to rearrange the order of competitions in the scores view as well? Not hard to do. Good luck.
Best sports app
by tenn titans on 2019/10/02 21:26
Best thing about this app is you can watch your local game and the prime time game of the week for free I’m loving this app
Great app but...
by DoubleATRC on 2019/09/30 18:06
The new logo is hideous. I love the dark theme and depth of content that this app offers but there’s too many ads and the functionality could be improved by including favorite leagues next to favorite teams on the home page, like how THE SCORE does it.
Dark mode
by AARONA36 on 2019/09/30 15:54
The app has had its own dark mode forever. They need to get with it though and update their widget now that iOS has system wide dark mode.
Live NFL drains data
by mt593253 on 2019/09/30 15:15
Since they added the live streaming NFL games, with no apparent way to shut them off, I’ve gone over my data plan usage. I can shut off cellular to the app but then I won’t be able to get scores. I guess I have to go ESPN app for scores.
No Apple TV
by fancyface04 on 2019/09/29 23:56
Good app but for some reason DOES NOT connect to my smart tv for nothing That’s the ONLY downfall of this app U guys should fix this cuz it would b nice to watch it on tv
✌🏼
by JeefBerky666 on 2019/09/29 21:32
This was my go-to sports app for several years. Unfortunately, I accidentally updated the app and cannot stand the new interface. It’s been real, Yahoo. Thanks for all the memories. Peace.
All Adds
by bb jj ii on 2019/09/29 03:55
The worst app for fantasy. The whole page is adds you can barely see your team. The worst is their own pay to play contest built in to the app with a fake X that takes you to their contest instead of closing the add. PLAY FANTASY ANYWHERE BUT HERE!
Needs watch app!!!
by Jsquanto on 2019/09/28 02:23
Then I would give 5 stars.
iPhone XS Max
by Rick08211970 on 2019/09/28 00:44
Ver: 12.4.1 Crashes every time I scroll past the last score or page. Reinstalled app reinstalled iPhone to no avail. Yes, deleted app and reinstalled it a few time. All apps are up to date.
Full screen
by leschar89 on 2019/09/27 05:10
Is it possible to add a button that lets us switch from partial screen to full screen at will when watching games?
Good for live scoring, new feed is slow
by Yblock on 2019/09/27 01:44
Live scoring is great. News feeds are horrible. Headlines stay the same for a couple of days. The feeds in general are slow. Great app if you want yesterday’s news.
GREAT APP
by scanner jack on 2019/09/27 00:59
Thank You for letting us watch live sports. This is A Great App. It works perfect. Keep up the great work that you do. Love this app. From Jack
So excited to watch Monday Night Football Live!
by Cad527 on 2019/09/26 16:44
This is the easiest and fastest sports app to navigate. None compare to it. Live games stream perfectly.
Best sports app!
by Team_S0L0 on 2019/09/25 01:20
Nice performance and looks good at the same time.
Amazing
by Mnelson11 on 2019/09/24 02:52
The best way to watch football in a car ride or when you’re not home.
So much better
by JohnnyDoe89 on 2019/09/23 19:52
New icon is so much better... been screaming for you guys to change that forever Always loved the UI!
Fav sports app. Make Apple Watch app!
by haveatomato on 2017/11/11 14:54
The Yahoo Sports app has always been my favorite sports app to use due to its clean and simple design, ease of use and navigate. I use it exclusively for NBA, as that’s the only sport I follow or care about. They have been great about updating and adding features as needed over the years. I hope they can make an Apple Watch app for scores, so I don’t need to keep using two apps for both devices. And if they do make a Watch app, I would suggest having the ability to just show scores for one league :) (instead of all leagues or just one team)
Fixing Something That Wasn’t Broken

Yahoo should have just stayed with the old design. The layout is worse than before and there is no longer smooth navigation through the app. If you click on a game and then go back to the list of all of the games for that night, there is an annoying glitch that moves the page so you end up clicking the wrong thing and you have to wait for the ad to pop up to be sure to avoid the mistake again. The ad that pops up at the top of the screen pushes everything down, but it pops up delayed, causing the whole screen to move down. The box scores are lacking some stats, like turnovers in basketball for example while the old version included them. It also doesn’t show if a baseball game went into extra innings before you click on it. It also doesn’t show if it is the top or bottom of the inning. Soccer games are not included with the tv information, which is a bummer. When you click on a team’s schedule, the app doesn’t separate preseason/spring training games from regular season games. There are many little things that add up, making this version a lot worse than before. Looks like I’ll be moving to espn. The app simply isn’t enjoyable to use anymore.
Favorite sports app out there
by Bernard Edwards on 2018/11/24 20:12
The layout is easy and quick, has enough articles to keep me entertained, and the BIGGEST plus is that it's the only sports app I've found that shows what station a game is being played. That actually is the biggest separator between other apps. I'm giving it a 4 because stats is a little lacking, not sure how easy it is to bolster that, but it bothers me. Also, I loved when it had trending games. It was removed a while, but it still REALLY bothers me they got rid of it. I used to open the app and see a big college football game was coming up, then an NBA game, then college football. Cool. 3 big games coming on, and what channel they were on, close the app and be happy. Now I have to manually check ALL the games across all the sports. I can see if they never had it, but they did and removed it >:-<
Widget changes/updates to make it better
by Mombo Jambo on 2019/10/27 17:46
I’d like to see a change/update on the widget that actually says the day of the week. ESPN widget has the day and date of my team’s upcoming games and it’s easier to know what day it actually falls on and I don’t have to look at the calendar to see what day of the week games fall on when looking ahead. Listing the tv channels games are on would also be VERY helpful, as ESPN does that and lets me know the channel/network the game is being broadcast. Would also like to see the over/under line from the widget as well. I’ve been using Yahoo sports app for a few weeks and like it, and seeing those changes/updates would get me to delete ESPN from my phone and use Yahoo entirely.
Add a “history” news section and fix sign in
by OrgandBlkMan on 2019/05/24 07:05
OMG. I can’t take it anymore. I’m posting so maybe this will get heard and fixed. First off almost every time I get a notification of an article and I go to click it, I get either a completely blank screen or the title but no article. I can see the “back” arrow displayed but once I give up waiting for the article to load I CANT FIND IT AGAIN. Give us some sort of news search option or a “history” section so we can see articles that failed to load. Second thing is I just tried commenting on an article for the first time in a long time. It asked me to confirm my mobile device. I did and then it sent me back to a prior article. I got back to the article I wanted to comment on. Had to redo the sign in process and it repeated the same thing that happened the first time. Garbage.
More Politics and Terrible App
by wathan99 on 2017/09/30 04:30
This app continues to get worse with every update. It’s getting harder to find the news stories I want to read and despite getting alerts for stories, when I go to find them, I can’t. The other thing is that I’m realizing that Yahoo is getting extremely political and it’s definitely leaning to the left. Now, before all the Liberals chastise me, I am a moderate and don’t align with either party. I am also a Veteran and mindful of how little either major party truly cares about the people they “serve”. Having said that, I used to follow sports because they kept politics out of it. Now, it seems that I can’t get away from politics. As a result, I have deleted this app. As a Veteran, I have a right to disagree with how this app is being used to pursue a political agenda and I will refuse to download it unless major changes are made.
Very surprised...
by G.I. Joe1964 on 2018/01/14 05:34
I had extremely low expectations of The Yahoo sports app delivering me the NFL playoffs on my phone, but the app came through. Watched both Saturday clashes streamed on my phone and caught everything perfectly. Even pulled the game in on my radio to compare how far behind it was from the live action, and was pleasantly surprised to find out it was less than ten seconds off. As someone who has NFL Sunday ticket from Direct T.V. (which doesn’t provide any playoff games), I give a big tip of the hat to Yahoo for coming through...
Need to fix. Used to be good
by MansonsMom on 2018/04/18 14:44
Takes forever for scores and schedules to load. So annoying! this app used to be great. Now I always have issues getting scores/schedules. All my other apps work fine. I have a brand new phone with great service provider - it’s gotta be the app. *update* after this review the developer contacted me about the issues. It’s not fixed- but the fact that they read reviews and try to improve has me feeling good about yahoo sports again. I’ll keep checking back to see for improvements. But good on them for at least reading feedback from the people using the app. :)
Stop sending adds as “notifications”.
by Typical Outlier on 2018/10/05 16:57
Until recently this app was perfect. I use it often and rely on it for scores, news and relevant info. It was one of the first apps I downloaded when I purchased my first iPhone years ago. I don’t know if some policy changed with iOS 12 but I receive adds now masked as “notifications”. Stop this BS. Stop. It. Stop trying to ruin everything in the world with additional income streams. If you can’t afford to run the app, cut something irrelevant or unused. I do not want adds as “notifications”. I DO want relevant notifications on my favorite sports and teams. Learn the difference.
Struggling
by Dnegs12 on 2018/04/28 20:24
Up until recently, this was a 5 star app. Lately though, it crashes, freezes, or scores just don’t update more often than not. I’ve tried the options suggested by the developer in some of the other reviews such as making sure I had the most up to date version and even uninstalled and reinstalled, but that did not work. An example would be when I look a MLB score, the entire MLB scoreboard tells me the Cubs/Brewers are in the top of the 6th, but when I tap the game to get the stats, I am suddenly back to the 5th inning. I figured Yahoo would figure it out, but everyone who works there must be on vacation. If the performance isn’t fixed soon I may need to look at a different app altogether.
This app is wonderful!
by sarahtonin16 on 2018/09/10 03:34
It gives me updates faster than other apps, and it’s not clogged with ads. The only reason I’m giving this 4 stars is because after the latest update, the notifications are having problems. They keep getting cut off (like the team name might not completely show). I have bigger/bolder text on my phone, but even with that, the notifications never seemed to be an issue at all. Which might not be a huge problem, but I use the notifications for score updates and such, since I can’t always have the app open or watch/listen to the game.
Yahoo please.
by Driggity Drank on 2018/06/29 03:47
What happened to this app?? It used to be my go-to app for my NBA scores and news, but now half of the articles aren't even legible. They just look like a cluster of links without a readable format to them. I mean does anyone actually proof-read the articles before they're put into the app? I'll see an article that is actually interesting only to find that I have to sift lines of links/sources to find where the article actually starts. I'm not saying that all of the news reports are like this, just a good majority of them. I used to think this app was coded better than ESPN's and BR's, but now it seems like it's right on par with them. Hopefully these issues can be resolved and be a thing of the past.
Still buggy
by 527472 on 2019/04/26 14:33
I’ve been using the app for a few years, but there is a bug that goes from a version to a version and doesn’t get fixed. The app automatically adds Major League Soccer and International Friendlies to my favorite sports. I remove them, but the next time I open the app, the two sports are there. I tried everything: removing all my favorite sports and adding them back, turning the phone on and off, but every time the app adds the two sports. I even tried switching to a different sport app but I’m used to the Yahoo app and it has decent features otherwise so I keep coming back...to the same bug.
Amazing!
by Mcaruso142 on 2019/09/08 12:18
This is the only App I found that allows you to watch NFL games for free. Yes, you are limited to a selection of games (5-6 per week)(which in-itself is still amazing granted it’s FREE), and the games are 30-45 seconds behind live, but still, allowing you to watch games for free totally separates this app from competition. As for news and alerts, Yahoo appears to be covering all the new material pretty quickly, so that’s a big plus as well. Overall, the app is a great find; I would highly recommend.
Suggestion!
by Luke31500 on 2018/01/16 03:15
It would be extremely helpful if you made custom groupings for the scores I want to view. For example, when viewing scores from college basketball, I would love to be able to select Custom instead of, say, “Top 25” or “Big 12” so I could view Top 25 and Big 12 games on the same tab. Implementing this would be incredibly helpful for college sports fans that care about their teams, conferences, as well as the relevant, Top 25 matchups. Thanks for your consideration. This is a top notch sports app.
Great App, one lingering bug
by Pizzertron on 2019/07/11 18:57
The app is great and works very well! My (iPhone 8) one issue is that when I get a notification that links to a story, I’ll touch the notification which opens the app to the story and things load/display great, then all of a sudden the text of the story disappears. Nothing I do seems to bring it back. I have to try and find the story by navigating to the section of the app that lists it, select it there and then things are fine. Only time it’s an issue is when I touch the notification. Fixing that bug would be amazing! 🙏
01glen
by 01glen on 2019/02/21 22:09
This is a so so app. It has the information about some of the teams I like, but short on info about injuries. Place a feature that lists injury reports for each team, how long they’ll be out and their status. A lot of the stories are old too. Everything revolves around the yankees, Ed Sox and dodgers. Some Small market teams are teams that win on lower budgets, and with rosters that are not store bought winners with high salary players. ******Would be great if when using the "game" function if yahoo would include a sound feature to it. Listening to a game while you're team is on the road, and not on tv would really make the game feature a whole lot better.
Super Bowl flop
by Miss-Claudia on 2018/02/05 00:15
Tried to stream the super bowl, but airplay wasn’t supported. Would have been willing to pay for access to a Super Bowl stream on the big screen. Let’s break that down, I would have PAID a one time price to see a stream of mostly ads, with a tiny bit of football and halftime content, but in 2018 this still doesn’t seem to exist. Guess I’m sitting this one out, let me know when the NFL finally gets with the times. Thanks for trying Yahoo!
Awesome For Fand
by Kitkatkatyperry on 2019/02/25 08:42
Thanks for developing an outstanding easy to use App. Yahoo Sports makes being a fan at any level easy. I follow multiple teams in all different sports and can get there in seconds. The only improvement that I think could be improved is the rosters. I would Like to see the roster have an option to sort by position and who is active, on the 40 man roster, or on the disabled list. Thanks again for providing an outstanding sports app second to none.
Gone from bad to worse!
by 2nyy8 on 2019/07/03 20:02
This app was good. But then it went from bad to worse. I deleted it because I couldn’t stand it anymore. The scores and updates are not in real time. The information so late I have already received it from other apps. The notifications are all messed up. I checked off to be notified about information about my particular team. It worked for awhile although it was not in real time. Now I was getting information for every team in MLB for EVERYTHING! Change of pitchers, change of innings, scores, it was so annoying! So I deleted the app. I will find a new app. I know every app has issues but other apps fix their issues Score just gets worse. So, I’m done!
Best sports app out there
by sports1010 on 2018/04/14 16:00
I’ve been a user forever, but when it was called sports liar and the app has always been way more organized and user friendly than ESPN or the score. I love how you added player stats for every year in their careers. I use it everyday and I love it but I used to like reading the associated press articles before and after games and for some reason the app doesn’t have them anymore. Once that’s back in, it’ll be the perfect app
Awesome for streaming
by Loughery175 on 2018/02/04 23:32
I use this app to stream live football (not soccer) games, but if I wanted to watch tons of worthless ads I’d keep watching TV. Please let the “We’ll be right back” screen stay up. I would much rather hear the background music than another dose of advertising that I put up with everywhere else, everyday. Edit: Of course the one time I actually want to watch the ads (today, the Super Bowl) I get the same crap as always.
Somethings is off
by Killa mon on 2018/10/21 18:32
I’ve been using yahoo sports for awhile now, these days for me to read the news articles it’s like commercial after commercials the worse part is it lags or stops for me to read it real quick. I hope they fix these glitches. The score updates take awhile to load, I was trying to follow the dodgers game 7 for the NLCS and someone next to me with another sport app was cheering about something and I realized my score didn’t upload fast enough so I found out the dodgers won when I had one more out to go. Please yahoo help a brother out!
Miss the days of missing big plays? You're in luck!
by KeepItCrooked on 2019/01/06 18:59
If you are missing the days where big plays fly by you due to service interruptions, you're in luck! This app will fail to provide live games only at the most inopportune times, and boy does it never disappoint! It's even invented new ways you kick you off, such as randomly locating you in a blackout area for minutes at a time. Don't worry though, restarting the app or your phone is ineffective. You simply have to wait until the Yahoo Sports gods grant you another shot at seeing your team in the playoffs. What a great deal Yahoo made with your wireless provider! They didn't even have to provide appropriate capacity to handle the demand!
Getting worse
by Tazman_OH on 2019/08/23 01:51
First, they can't ever leave it alone. They are always changing stuff to make it worse. Second, they appear at first to have plenty of content, but honestly if it is not a main sport it does not work right. Third, I have to have notifications completely off or I end up getting tons I had unchecked. Last, they claim to give free games, but they are the same you get for free on broadcast television most of the time. Plus if you try to airplay it to your tv so you actually see it they tell you that's not allowed. For what reason!!! Is it free or not?! I will be finding a different sports app in the future.
Best Sports App, don’t let the name yahoo fool you
by Hi133 on 2018/05/19 22:39
I’ve been using this app for over 4 years now and I’ve never once thought of switching to another app. This app is so well designed and user friendly, you can organize all of your favorite teams from basically any sport, set reminders for game times, read sports news, check scores, and so much more. Don’t let the yahoo name fool you, this app is better than the competitors.
Good
by tomcut on 2018/01/24 16:47
I think this is the best sports app in the App Store. The app logo is very simple but powerful because you know what app it is simply by looking at it. It’s a very popular app that I think it’s very easy to use and navigate through. It’s a great app for all ages and is very user friendly. You can set notifications on your favorite teams. I have had no issues with this app, and use it daily to check my scores. It’s a free app, so its definite must download app.
Best sports app for most sports.
by Jctusa2011 on 2019/10/06 01:10
I’ve been using this app since it was called Sportacular. It’s THE best app I’ve ever used for NFL football by far. Has many streaming games along with play by play and up to date scores. Great news stories, recaps, etc. Very good for college football, NBA and college football. Pretty good for BPL. Only disappointment has been golf where scores tend to lag way behind, but app is worth 5 stars plus on basis of football alone!
Best sports app
by meghan72015 on 2019/11/03 14:29
I’ve been using this app for 10 years, hands down the best sports app out there. It’s easy to use and super helpful. I set up alerts and you can filter just to see your favorite teams. It keeps me up to date with news and stats. You get to watch free live games all the time (games you actually want to watch) this is one of the only apps where the ads on it aren’t completely annoying.
App Issues
by Msleah25 on 2018/11/06 07:42
Love that the app gives the latest information and I can find whatever sport score I want to. Also can watch live videos. However, The app worked better before the updates. When you read articles they constantly pause and you can’t rewind. Also it doesn’t automatically move to next article like it used to.
Suffers from US-centric neglect
by Malkamachine on 2019/10/03 18:46
The app might have been rated of higher quality 5 years ago but this is 2019. Seems to be suffering from neglect consistent with Yahoo’s overall demise. The Europa league organizes teams into groups similar to the champions league, yet somehow year after year the product team at Yahoo can’t implement this in the app. Instead all 32 teams are listed in one massive league table. Embarrassing. If you guys ever get around to making that one simple change, perhaps also enable the user to rearrange the order of competitions in the scores view as well? Not hard to do. Good luck.
Wow, this app keeps getting worse
by Old news on 2017/10/28 13:58
Another 2017 update: the voting for which team will win appears to be fake. It shows my vote counted, but when looking at the map says no one in my state voted. 2017 Update: support for women's sports is terrible. At one point last week they showed a game as being over when it was the end of the 3rd quarter. They also had one teams score WRONG by 10 points. 2016 review: They solved their data issue, but now the layout it terrible. The fonts are too small, and you can't make them bigger. This app really just keeps stepping backwards. It used to be my go-to sports app, now I have to find one that is useful.
Not working
by Afrenchy1975 on 2019/08/30 02:13
Sometime during the off season of football I notice the app stop working. I ignored it and figured it would be fixed. Football season is upon us and I redownloaded the app and it’s still not working for me!! I deleted the app, downloaded it again and still doesn’t work. A couple days later I noticed an “update” option. I thought “OK, this will get it going”. Nope. Still getting a message, sorry so slow, try later or reset your account. So I did that also. Still does not not work. I have an iPhone 8+ with plenty of storage and power. So guess I’m just giving up on this app. It worked great last year.
College Sports Coverage Needs Work
by RScannix on 2019/01/26 21:24
For the most part, I really like the app, but when it comes to college sports, particularly college basketball, I opt to use ESPN’s app. The following are the main reasons why: 1. Notifications for start of games tend to be late, particularly for teams from mid-major conferences 2. Almost complete lack of news alerts or stats for women’s basketball. 3. Game notifications do not distinguish between different college teams from the same school. In late fall, I might see a game start notification for, say, “Mississippi State v. Florida,” and I am left to wonder whether the game is football, men’s basketball, or women’s basketball. ESPN is the only app that I know of that actually distinguishes what sport the alert is referring to, and it would be nice to see the competition fight to at least keep up in this area.
Great app, one easy request though.
by Molecularman90 on 2019/01/07 16:26
I’ve used this app for a very long time now. It has everything I want in a sports app, however, it has a very dumb flaw. I use it to look up point spreads and over/under totals, and the games that will be shown on the app cover the spread and point total lines with a little orange banner that says “Watch Team 1 v. Team 2 - right in the app!” All I’m asking is to move the spread and total lines above that banner so they can be seen on all games.
Won’t even open now
by Cdanselm on 2017/11/13 16:09
Yahoo! Sports was my go-to app for my favorite sports teams, but unfortunately it stopped working several weeks ago and won’t even open on my phone. Checked for updates, but nothing since early Oct. I guess they don’t care about their product. I noticed the content on their website - using my laptop - is also inconsistent lately i.e. out of date.
Great app - please fix issue
by nflfootball28 on 2019/03/08 16:57
This is one of my favorite apps. Could you please fix the issue where the dates for favorite teams future games on the home tab no longer show up? I utilized this a lot to see when all of my favorite teams would be playing next and with the recent update the dates have disappeared and it only shows times. Thank you
Yahoo sports is great
by Mrfarm on 2018/05/29 04:48
But any sport that has a delay (Atlanta Braves right now) simply does not show up in the app. I know it’s a new day but I mean come on guys the game is still being played how do you not have a slot for a live game?? Every game shown is for the next day and I know the braves has a huge delay but come on it’s not that hard to show the live stats for a delayed game Update: the game is there but still not listed as live. You have to go back a day to see the score.
Bugs upon submitting bugs
by jnKillTeam on 2019/07/31 04:49
I have to give this app a 1 star as the “submit feedback” form constantly freezes and ultimately crashes when I attempt to submit feedback via the app. I have also noticed a recurring issue in which the conversation section in MLB games only displays the “start a conversation” button, when I tap it nothing happens, and all of the previous conversations are gone until I force restart the app. The conversations will appear for a period of time until the broken cycle starts again, appears to be some a memory leak. Please fix and I will change my review to 5 star.
New format is super annoying
by cj benn on 2019/03/15 18:28
What’s the deal with having some random video showing up at the top of my home page that has nothing to do with my favorites? It takes up most of the screen and it is hard to scroll past it without accidentally activating it. The app used to display the scores of my favorite teams at the top and a list of videos and news items related to my favorites off to the side. That worked for me. This version will no longer be my go-to app for getting sports scores. Get rid of the “in your face” video!
Simply the Best Sports App
by MichaelMiori on 2017/12/08 06:48
I’ve been obsessed with sports since before I can remember and need to check scores, schedules, and stats daily. I’ve tried out all the major sports apps and Yahoo Sports is just far superior to all the rest. A Must own app for every sports fan. *Tip: Be sure to activate the “dark theme”in the settings because it is much cleaner and aesthetically pleasing than the default white theme.
Latest Update...Something went wrong.
by Sick of the TCF app on 2018/04/02 00:22
Is this happening to other people too. Instead of bringing you to the scores you click on it brings you to the app in the App Store? I use the Yahoo Fantasy app for my baseball team. When I am in the fantasy app and click on scores and select a certain game, it doesn’t bring me to the game stats anymore. It brings me here. To the App Store then I have to click “open” on here to access the game stats. Please fix if this is not just happening to me.
Switch from ESPN and you’ll never go back
by CubsWon2016 on 2019/03/20 03:41
Gives you every piece of information you could possibly need about any matchup, player or team. Individuals’ season over season stats, game logs from last few weeks, highlight videos, playoff standings, betting lines, full team schedules, what TV stations the game is on etc. Only piece it’s missing is witch college/ HS each athlete attended.
Autoplay of the featured football game...
by Giuliani on 2019/11/03 21:01
In the box score section makes the app slow. I have to wait for the video to load before i can swipe down to look at scores and upcoming games. Very annoying. I’m also not a fan of the swipe UI decision to switch between scores, news etc. The app often misinterprets a scrolling motion down for a swipe across. Drives me nuts. Is there a way for you to adjust the length of the swipe motion because any slight lateral motion seems to be recognized as a swipe.
Still alright
by jDizzle8291 on 2019/03/28 22:10
I often find things breaking with new releases, but that’s with everything, right? Well, every night when I’m looking at NHL scores and go to the next day, it shows today’s games for tomorrow or vice-versa. It’s not intuitive enough to remember what games are when. Also with opening day baseball here, I noticed there is no inning (top or bottom) designator on the main screen when looking at all the MLB scores at once for that day. Unless of course I’m just blind, which is very possible.
Slow to see its main function, the scores
by Azn447 on 2017/11/23 06:11
I used to love this app. I used to recommend it to everyone. I had this app since it first came out before it was bought out by yahoo, so I’m kinda torn but the scores take forever to load now. I try to see all games for NCAAB or NHL and it just won’t load. Not even the previous day will load. I think I may have to look for a new scores app. Hopefully they will fix the problem in the next update and the load time will decrease...
Great design, solid streaming, more bugs and battery use than I’d like
by ScamBoss on 2019/02/11 22:39
Easy to use with rich modern graphics, but has some noticeable performance snags and bugs (especially the Headlines tab). Also a bit of a battery hog. Streaming NFL games for the 2018 season was delightfully easy with better than expected video quality on mobile data and WiFi. Overall a very good app that could benefit from some more optimization.
Surprised how great this app is!
by akief8795 on 2019/10/17 01:47
I already have a plethora of sports apps and this app just takes it to another level. I never miss any of the biggest news drops and stay up to date on all the latest sports news. This app is a must for any avid sports fan. I love the interface and the way it’s set up, and being able to watch live NFL games for free is gold.
Used to update quickly...
by Checkerfanatic on 2018/09/30 18:11
I like the layout of this app and it used to update current plays quickly, but they must have laid off staff. For NFL games, it will take several minutes to update the latest plays. Different screens will have different info, like the main NFL page showing all games and scores will show the Bears possessing the ball and 1st and 10, then when you click on the game it shows the Bucs in possession 2nd and 7. The app is minutes apart within itself, not just to the actual game. Please allocate some resources to make this usable for fantasy again.

Great design but......

The app has content links to other publications such as the LA Times, WASH Post etc....often you need to be a subscriber to these other newspapers in order to read the article.
NBA Scores Way Behind
by CRich321 on 2019/11/16 02:41
Spurs game tonight shows 8 minutes left in the fourth with all the stats still frozen at that part of the game. The game is already over.
Seriously
by fnrediculous on 2019/11/15 23:53
I like getting updates on my players and team status but not at 6 am and even 11 pm ??? F#u%c*king Seriously !!! Knock it off !
With video Autoplay on, it gets deleted
by SK350 on 2019/11/14 11:47
Its now 11/14/19 and up to 3 days ago, I enjoyed this app. Now, even with video Autoplay turned off in settings, a video advertisement starts anytime I click on a linked article. I have it off for a reason. I use my phone to read in quiet places and can’t have a video start at high volume without my knowledge. I am going to delete this app and try reloading it. If that works, then I will change my review. If not then I’ll delete the app. This is something specific to the current version released on 11/11/19. This wasn’t a problem before.
Great work
by usudjdjdj on 2019/11/13 02:48
I love it!It is the best thing anyone could ever create.Thank you so so much for this amazing app!
Great except for Widget
by brian_120173 on 2019/11/12 22:03
This is the best sports app around. Love the dark mode and use of team colors...however, the widget needs to be updated for dark mode. Needs to be black background not grey. Thanks.
Buggy and crashes constantly
by jggibbs3 on 2019/11/12 04:36
Crashes every few minutes. Audio plays well after I quit the app. Overall, latest update is quite terrible.
Used to be the best scoring app
by slimpicken on 2019/11/12 03:21
Starting a few updates ago, whenever the app is OPEN, my WiFi speed on my phone goes berserk. I noticed it because scores were loading very slowly or not at all. Speed test shows that Speed on my phone diminishes immensely and latency skyrockets when the app is OPEN. No other app does this to my phone’s internet speed. Can’t use this app until it’s fixed. Why would it have any effect on my WiFi speed stability?? I haven’t even tried it on cellular. Yahoo please figure it out.
Frozen stream
by veryj MB cdgh on 2019/11/12 01:43
Does anyone else have a problem with streaming games? I have an iPhone 5s, which I understand is obsolete for smartphone users, but when I stream prime time games the video freezes and the app shuts down.
I have a problem
by NeoJV on 2019/11/11 00:08
Im starting to have a problem with getting in the app. When i try, it says “sorry things seem to be slow”. I deleted it 5 times and downloaded it again. Its still doesn’t work.
One star so far
by Scallop Holden on 2019/11/10 20:03
This app is a virus. You think you closed it in the app switcher? Wrong it’s running in the background. Want to look at a sports article on yahoo in a web browser? It will open the stupid app I literally delete it ever Monday
Cast videos?
by RonDawg711 on 2019/11/10 16:48
Can this app cast live games to my chrome cast ?
What happened to the lines on the games?
by Goterps79 on 2019/11/09 01:25
Not seeing any?
Notification Sounds all the same
by Bdharp85 on 2019/11/07 01:03
I’ve been using this app for maybe 10 years now. All of a sudden all the alert tones are the same. There used to be a distinct sound for game specific alerts such as a game starting and a different sound for league news. Now all my tones are the same and it makes me think games are starting all throughout the day. If this isn’t fixed soon I’ll find a different app.
Crashes Frequently
by Voltemond on 2019/11/04 03:58
Good GUI, crashes often.
Trash
by Dxrk Knight on 2019/11/04 02:25
Kicks you out every time you watch a video after a minute or two in
Fix notifications
by FBgetsthebird on 2019/11/03 22:37
Love the app, but the options to turn off notifications don’t work (specifically Fantasy Slate results).
Local only 😫
by 37thTimeisaCharm on 2019/11/03 22:29
If you’re like me and love an “out of network” team don’t bother to download. Also many ads and fair amount of buffering if you’re able to watch your game... 😢
Autoplay of the featured football game...
by Giuliani on 2019/11/03 21:01
In the box score section makes the app slow. I have to wait for the video to load before i can swipe down to look at scores and upcoming games. Very annoying. I’m also not a fan of the swipe UI decision to switch between scores, news etc. The app often misinterprets a scrolling motion down for a swipe across. Drives me nuts. Is there a way for you to adjust the length of the swipe motion because any slight lateral motion seems to be recognized as a swipe.
More like “Fake Phone Football”
by BurnDaddy69 on 2019/11/03 15:08
Total crap. Very wonky to begin with, then doesn't even stream on iPad. When they say it streams on tablet they must mean the junk Android type. Got it to stream on my phone for about a minute before huge buffering issues. Uninstalled this junk. Time for Yahoo to go bye bye for good!
Best sports app
by meghan72015 on 2019/11/03 14:29
I’ve been using this app for 10 years, hands down the best sports app out there. It’s easy to use and super helpful. I set up alerts and you can filter just to see your favorite teams. It keeps me up to date with news and stats. You get to watch free live games all the time (games you actually want to watch) this is one of the only apps where the ads on it aren’t completely annoying.
Great Sports App
by rhnyP on 2019/11/01 14:32
Fast, easy, comprehensive. It’s my go-to sports app. Love the Watch feature.
Settings are ignored
by Baptistpreacherph on 2019/11/01 01:24
I had to delete the app because I couldn’t get it to respond to my settings. It wouldn’t open to where I set it to open. Also, I set it to never auto play videos and yet videos would play automatically
Horrible
by mkgrundy on 2019/10/31 15:08
I hope you want your phone flooded with notifications that you cannot turn off. That's all this app is good for. I downloaded to keep up on two teams. I selected those teams and what notifications I want but I get everything still. Phone is blowing up all day. No thanks. Uninstall!
notifications for favorite teams won’t save
by capitalheel on 2019/10/31 02:43
how has this not been addressed in a version for at least a year now?
New update pauses music, annoying
by ugaguy496 on 2019/10/30 15:01
This app is by far my favorite sports app! But the most recent update causes music that’s playing to be paused upon opening the app, which is pretty annoying...
Keeps changing notification setting to show the fantasy slate
by Trumani on 2019/10/29 23:56
I keep turning off the notification setting for the fantasy slate and it keeps turning back on by itself.
Notifications
by Frostyglen on 2019/10/29 23:38
I’ve turned off ALL notifications and still continually get pings on my phone. Tried support on the app and just get errors. The app itself is awesome, but lack of support and constant harassment rates a 1star
Incredibly frustrating
by Stoneman9284 on 2019/10/28 19:42
This app is fine, as long as you’re not a soccer fan. But they are constantly adding things to my list of favorite sports so I have to manually remove the things I don’t want to see every time I use the app. I hate it. Edit to add: feedback function in the app doesn’t work. It freezes when you hit the submit button.
FANTASY SLATE?
by Brown recluse64 on 2019/10/28 04:25
Is there no longer fantasy slate picks for cash? Used to be very fun feature. It was the main thing i used this app for.
Streaming doesn’t even work
by LiL InFaMouS on 2019/10/28 01:23
Went to watch just one live game; it just buffered. The entire time. I have great service, so that isn’t the issue.
Widget changes/updates to make it better
by Mombo Jambo on 2019/10/27 17:46
I’d like to see a change/update on the widget that actually says the day of the week. ESPN widget has the day and date of my team’s upcoming games and it’s easier to know what day it actually falls on and I don’t have to look at the calendar to see what day of the week games fall on when looking ahead. Listing the tv channels games are on would also be VERY helpful, as ESPN does that and lets me know the channel/network the game is being broadcast. Would also like to see the over/under line from the widget as well. I’ve been using Yahoo sports app for a few weeks and like it, and seeing those changes/updates would get me to delete ESPN from my phone and use Yahoo entirely.
Can’t submit feedback in the app
by Conman_33 on 2019/10/27 02:21
Currently you can’t send feedback in the app so I have to do it here. You can’t see basketball scores when they’re at 100+ points. It just shows 1... if this could be updated as well as being able to provide feedback in the app then that’d be great.
Yahoo sports app
by demo #1 on 2019/10/26 17:25
This is the best app ever if you’re looking for a app that won’t let you down this app is the one.great I mean really great
App freezes on NBA
by Boston2Santiago on 2019/10/26 14:44
When I tap on NBA, app freezes and I have to force-quit. Please fix. <Update: They fixed it!>
In Game
by nflchamp0102jj on 2019/10/25 20:02
Does this app show the actual football field diagram, and the football moving as the teams move the ball forward while the game is live and going ?
NWSL Replays
by steerpike77 on 2019/10/24 19:23
The NWSL replays should have a feature that remembers the point you last watched a game and resume.
Terrible
by BourbonDaddy on 2019/10/24 16:11
Hate Yahoo! They are slow on updates and have terrible info. Also don’t know how to classify injuries ! Terrible for sports leagues use ESPN !
Cool app but it keeps freezing, even with a new phone
by please uddate app on 2019/10/24 04:00
Thanks in advance for updating app!
Terrible
by Dj Brian Thomas on 2019/10/24 02:10
This app has gone downhill quickly!
This app is awesome
by mikey123477228 on 2019/10/24 01:07
This app is great because now that there was an update all bugs are fixed. Also, this sports app has some football games that you can watch live! Next you can read articles bet on teams to win games, and watch replays. So that’s why I think this app is great.
Freezing on NBA
by CNoteEZ on 2019/10/24 01:05
Can’t scroll thru NBA
Keeps freezing
by Trvrballard on 2019/10/24 00:33
Amazing how yahoo can take a fine, working app and just completely take a fat dump all over it
Used to be an awesome app
by Jpetrou2 on 2019/10/24 00:15
Long my favorite sports app but with the latest update video auto plays with the sound on? That's some ESPN level BS. Reconsider this choice, Verizon.
How to get 5 stars
by Gioo559 on 2019/10/23 23:56
I would give it a 5 stars but you guys need to work on the quality I have unlimited LTE and the quality isn’t good
4 star but still a great app
by Josh Dee 08 on 2019/10/23 22:19
I gave this app 4 stars only because the comment section on the games can be glitchy but besides that a lot of good things about this app. I like how easy it is too see scores and keep track of your picks with the pick tracker. I also like the slates picks weekly and could win money
Great App
by Allyhey on 2019/10/23 19:51
Thank you so much for creating this app. It really helps me keep track of my favorite teams. Highly recommended.
Awful
by T. Spencer on 2019/10/23 16:37
It’s awful now bc they took off the stories. There is only two reasons I have this and the major one is the look at the stories. I’m deleting this app.
I hope you like unwanted push notifications
by d5m8 on 2019/10/22 23:40
If you allow push notifications, you are going to get plenty even if you turn off all of the options. All I want are game reminders, but I get multiple notifications a day for league news that I do not care about. I feel like the app developers are abusing the access to my attention I gave them.
Great App! But...
by Dredden76 on 2019/10/20 23:17
Whoever is in charge of the “Recent Plays” (NFL) DO BETTER!!
Latest Update Shuts Down App
by Catnpup on 2019/10/20 22:52
The latest update shuts down the app on NFL scores.
Keeps shutting down
by Dellaneva on 2019/10/20 17:48
I don’t know how many times I’ve tried to watch a game and the app keeps closing on its own. I’d give this app zero stars if I could with how unreliable it is.
Worst app ever
by Izzy908 on 2019/10/20 17:15
Every single week I wait to watch my favorite NFL team on here, every single week it never is streaming and not available and says I need to sign up for fubu tv. What good is having this app if you can’t even use it what it was meant for. Don’t download this garbage app
Outstanding .
by GodwinAustin on 2019/10/20 17:15
Thank you Yahoo.
Yahoo Sports
by Trout Favorite Player on 2019/10/20 06:54
Long time user of the yahoo apps including this one. Love the app. Just one suggestion though. Can we add NHL highlights and game recaps since we have all the other sports. That would be great. Thanks.
Outdated
by Mickmeister17 on 2019/10/19 17:06
The articles are biased and terrible. Plus, the sports icons are so outdated for some teams. I mean c’mon, 7 games in and you STILL have the University of Pittsburgh with wrong color scheme for example. Nice job keeping up to date Yahoo.
Good besides the buffering
by GOLDY020510 on 2019/10/19 04:12
App is good but it keeps buffering... that’s the only problem!!!! If there is a way to fix it... please put it in a update....
Notifications
by smf72 on 2019/10/19 01:26
You can't receive notifications on more then one device.
Terrible for NBA
by hardylj on 2019/10/18 08:32
This app is great for nfl live games you can watch for free but BBC why does it not have live games for free for nba games they make you have to pay $200 for league pass that ridiculous you need to change that! NBA games should be free just like the nfl is that’s my only problem
Yahoo sports app
by Twowordsgotbud on 2019/10/17 12:59
Highlight the scoring plays in the nba
Free Football!!!
by Jimmy GarapaGOAT on 2019/10/17 06:29
I can watch all locals nfl teams. Amazing
Best sports app hands down
by Adambadam on 2019/10/17 03:43
Yahoo Sports has been the best sports app for a long time but it was cemented in my mind this week when I emailed them for a feature request and they got back to me the same day and promised it would be incorporated into the next update. Four days later, the update was out and my request had been added! Awesome work Yahoo Sports team.
Surprised how great this app is!
by akief8795 on 2019/10/17 01:47
I already have a plethora of sports apps and this app just takes it to another level. I never miss any of the biggest news drops and stay up to date on all the latest sports news. This app is a must for any avid sports fan. I love the interface and the way it’s set up, and being able to watch live NFL games for free is gold.
Spam
by jimjam1001010 on 2019/10/13 20:35
I don’t want this link, I wanna watch sport
Poor streaming
by Johnny 3 balls on 2019/10/13 19:01
The app is fine for checking scores but streaming live events is disappointing. Half the time it just doesn’t load.
Inappropriate ads
by Blue boy 567 on 2019/10/13 13:30
The ads on the app are regularly of some in underwear. Not fit for families.
Turning Turdish
by Zoomish on 2019/10/12 23:50
In the past 6 months this app has gotten worse and worse. Slow score updates, alerts rarely work when turned on. Comment guidelines are overly restrictive. Complete lack of customer service.
Yahoo
by ktr1124 on 2019/10/11 21:01
Can you watch live nba games on this app?
Best for Live Streaming
by mrAssman on 2019/10/09 23:03
Way better than the spammy NFL app, quickly loads a live game even on my old android tablet.. which was a stuttery mess on the official NFL app.
Going down hill ...
by 10malman10 on 2019/10/09 13:06
Use to be my favorite app! But lately the “info” button on the individual “favorite team” screens doesn’t load. For a couple of weeks I would just come back. A few minutes and all was well. However this week it has gone over a day without loading. All other options on the app seem to be working fine. I just can’t read stories on my favorite teams ....
What happened to this app
by Dodge555 on 2019/10/09 11:08
No news stories under nfl teams pages very little stories under league page yahoo keeps getting worse
Great app
by Evilagut on 2019/10/08 23:19
Love this app and yahoo since the 90’s best info best everything
Awesome and keeps getting better
by Dr. K. Noisewater9 on 2019/10/08 02:03
I’ve been a fan of yahoo sports for years now and I love that I can watch the NFL on the app, great work guys.
Can’t watch live games...Hoax!
by LackToastNTallOreRent on 2019/10/06 20:13
Yeah let’s download this and it not show any live games. Went to NFL and nothing shows live while games are on. What a joke
Great app
by JohnnyBuckLDEM on 2019/10/06 18:18
I've had the for a long time, never been disappointed. It's easy to navigate you get instant news on all sports and times. It's the only Sports app I have on my I phone.
iPad
by Justin3547 on 2019/10/06 18:14
It says I can watch live NFL games on both my iPhone or iPad but yet the app won’t let me watch games on my iPad
Best sports app for most sports.
by Jctusa2011 on 2019/10/06 01:10
I’ve been using this app since it was called Sportacular. It’s THE best app I’ve ever used for NFL football by far. Has many streaming games along with play by play and up to date scores. Great news stories, recaps, etc. Very good for college football, NBA and college football. Pretty good for BPL. Only disappointment has been golf where scores tend to lag way behind, but app is worth 5 stars plus on basis of football alone!
Sports tab
by LSUfanintigahland on 2019/10/05 18:34
Would like to have the ability to move certain sports above others. For example I’d like to move college football to the top, followed by nfl, then baseball and then NBA. Then be able to rearrange college to bottom when the season is over
Too much advertising
by B-House on 2019/10/05 16:20
Way too much advertising. All have some buy this is overboard. Deleted the app.
Great app
by Chill102003 on 2019/10/04 18:30
It is my favorite sports app. It’s clean and easy to navigate and somewhat customizable. Only change I’d make is, to put the tv channel it’s being aired on for each game on the info without having to actually click into the game stats/info. Other than that, it’s the only app I use to check scores and follow games.
Complete BS
by Kenny.garner on 2019/10/04 03:18
Fully functioning iPad. Apple refuses to support.
Best sports app
by Gamecocks21 on 2019/10/03 23:33
Way better than espn or bleacher report. Some are the original articles are stupid but that’s the world we live in. Not a fan of the new color of the app logo after the update tho
Suffers from US-centric neglect
by Malkamachine on 2019/10/03 18:46
The app might have been rated of higher quality 5 years ago but this is 2019. Seems to be suffering from neglect consistent with Yahoo’s overall demise. The Europa league organizes teams into groups similar to the champions league, yet somehow year after year the product team at Yahoo can’t implement this in the app. Instead all 32 teams are listed in one massive league table. Embarrassing. If you guys ever get around to making that one simple change, perhaps also enable the user to rearrange the order of competitions in the scores view as well? Not hard to do. Good luck.
Best sports app
by tenn titans on 2019/10/02 21:26
Best thing about this app is you can watch your local game and the prime time game of the week for free I’m loving this app
Great app but...
by DoubleATRC on 2019/09/30 18:06
The new logo is hideous. I love the dark theme and depth of content that this app offers but there’s too many ads and the functionality could be improved by including favorite leagues next to favorite teams on the home page, like how THE SCORE does it.
Dark mode
by AARONA36 on 2019/09/30 15:54
The app has had its own dark mode forever. They need to get with it though and update their widget now that iOS has system wide dark mode.
Live NFL drains data
by mt593253 on 2019/09/30 15:15
Since they added the live streaming NFL games, with no apparent way to shut them off, I’ve gone over my data plan usage. I can shut off cellular to the app but then I won’t be able to get scores. I guess I have to go ESPN app for scores.
No Apple TV
by fancyface04 on 2019/09/29 23:56
Good app but for some reason DOES NOT connect to my smart tv for nothing That’s the ONLY downfall of this app U guys should fix this cuz it would b nice to watch it on tv
✌🏼
by JeefBerky666 on 2019/09/29 21:32
This was my go-to sports app for several years. Unfortunately, I accidentally updated the app and cannot stand the new interface. It’s been real, Yahoo. Thanks for all the memories. Peace.
All Adds
by bb jj ii on 2019/09/29 03:55
The worst app for fantasy. The whole page is adds you can barely see your team. The worst is their own pay to play contest built in to the app with a fake X that takes you to their contest instead of closing the add. PLAY FANTASY ANYWHERE BUT HERE!
Needs watch app!!!
by Jsquanto on 2019/09/28 02:23
Then I would give 5 stars.
iPhone XS Max
by Rick08211970 on 2019/09/28 00:44
Ver: 12.4.1 Crashes every time I scroll past the last score or page. Reinstalled app reinstalled iPhone to no avail. Yes, deleted app and reinstalled it a few time. All apps are up to date.
Full screen
by leschar89 on 2019/09/27 05:10
Is it possible to add a button that lets us switch from partial screen to full screen at will when watching games?
Good for live scoring, new feed is slow
by Yblock on 2019/09/27 01:44
Live scoring is great. News feeds are horrible. Headlines stay the same for a couple of days. The feeds in general are slow. Great app if you want yesterday’s news.
GREAT APP
by scanner jack on 2019/09/27 00:59
Thank You for letting us watch live sports. This is A Great App. It works perfect. Keep up the great work that you do. Love this app. From Jack
So excited to watch Monday Night Football Live!
by Cad527 on 2019/09/26 16:44
This is the easiest and fastest sports app to navigate. None compare to it. Live games stream perfectly.
Best sports app!
by Team_S0L0 on 2019/09/25 01:20
Nice performance and looks good at the same time.
Amazing
by Mnelson11 on 2019/09/24 02:52
The best way to watch football in a car ride or when you’re not home.
So much better
by JohnnyDoe89 on 2019/09/23 19:52
New icon is so much better... been screaming for you guys to change that forever Always loved the UI!
Fav sports app. Make Apple Watch app!
by haveatomato on 2017/11/11 14:54
The Yahoo Sports app has always been my favorite sports app to use due to its clean and simple design, ease of use and navigate. I use it exclusively for NBA, as that’s the only sport I follow or care about. They have been great about updating and adding features as needed over the years. I hope they can make an Apple Watch app for scores, so I don’t need to keep using two apps for both devices. And if they do make a Watch app, I would suggest having the ability to just show scores for one league :) (instead of all leagues or just one team)
Fixing Something That Wasn’t Broken
by Eriahd on 2019/04/10 20:06
Yahoo should have just stayed with the old design. The layout is worse than before and there is no longer smooth navigation through the app. If you click on a game and then go back to the list of all of the games for that night, there is an annoying glitch that moves the page so you end up clicking the wrong thing and you have to wait for the ad to pop up to be sure to avoid the mistake again. The ad that pops up at the top of the screen pushes everything down, but it pops up delayed, causing the whole screen to move down. The box scores are lacking some stats, like turnovers in basketball for example while the old version included them. It also doesn’t show if a baseball game went into extra innings before you click on it. It also doesn’t show if it is the top or bottom of the inning. Soccer games are not included with the tv information, which is a bummer. When you click on a team’s schedule, the app doesn’t separate preseason/spring training games from regular season games. There are many little things that add up, making this version a lot worse than before. Looks like I’ll be moving to espn. The app simply isn’t enjoyable to use anymore.
Favorite sports app out there
by Bernard Edwards on 2018/11/24 20:12
The layout is easy and quick, has enough articles to keep me entertained, and the BIGGEST plus is that it's the only sports app I've found that shows what station a game is being played. That actually is the biggest separator between other apps. I'm giving it a 4 because stats is a little lacking, not sure how easy it is to bolster that, but it bothers me. Also, I loved when it had trending games. It was removed a while, but it still REALLY bothers me they got rid of it. I used to open the app and see a big college football game was coming up, then an NBA game, then college football. Cool. 3 big games coming on, and what channel they were on, close the app and be happy. Now I have to manually check ALL the games across all the sports. I can see if they never had it, but they did and removed it >:-<
Widget changes/updates to make it better
by Mombo Jambo on 2019/10/27 17:46
I’d like to see a change/update on the widget that actually says the day of the week. ESPN widget has the day and date of my team’s upcoming games and it’s easier to know what day it actually falls on and I don’t have to look at the calendar to see what day of the week games fall on when looking ahead. Listing the tv channels games are on would also be VERY helpful, as ESPN does that and lets me know the channel/network the game is being broadcast. Would also like to see the over/under line from the widget as well. I’ve been using Yahoo sports app for a few weeks and like it, and seeing those changes/updates would get me to delete ESPN from my phone and use Yahoo entirely.
Add a “history” news section and fix sign in
by OrgandBlkMan on 2019/05/24 07:05
OMG. I can’t take it anymore. I’m posting so maybe this will get heard and fixed. First off almost every time I get a notification of an article and I go to click it, I get either a completely blank screen or the title but no article. I can see the “back” arrow displayed but once I give up waiting for the article to load I CANT FIND IT AGAIN. Give us some sort of news search option or a “history” section so we can see articles that failed to load. Second thing is I just tried commenting on an article for the first time in a long time. It asked me to confirm my mobile device. I did and then it sent me back to a prior article. I got back to the article I wanted to comment on. Had to redo the sign in process and it repeated the same thing that happened the first time. Garbage.
More Politics and Terrible App
by wathan99 on 2017/09/30 04:30
This app continues to get worse with every update. It’s getting harder to find the news stories I want to read and despite getting alerts for stories, when I go to find them, I can’t. The other thing is that I’m realizing that Yahoo is getting extremely political and it’s definitely leaning to the left. Now, before all the Liberals chastise me, I am a moderate and don’t align with either party. I am also a Veteran and mindful of how little either major party truly cares about the people they “serve”. Having said that, I used to follow sports because they kept politics out of it. Now, it seems that I can’t get away from politics. As a result, I have deleted this app. As a Veteran, I have a right to disagree with how this app is being used to pursue a political agenda and I will refuse to download it unless major changes are made.
Very surprised...
by G.I. Joe1964 on 2018/01/14 05:34
I had extremely low expectations of The Yahoo sports app delivering me the NFL playoffs on my phone, but the app came through. Watched both Saturday clashes streamed on my phone and caught everything perfectly. Even pulled the game in on my radio to compare how far behind it was from the live action, and was pleasantly surprised to find out it was less than ten seconds off. As someone who has NFL Sunday ticket from Direct T.V. (which doesn’t provide any playoff games), I give a big tip of the hat to Yahoo for coming through...
Need to fix. Used to be good
by MansonsMom on 2018/04/18 14:44
Takes forever for scores and schedules to load. So annoying! this app used to be great. Now I always have issues getting scores/schedules. All my other apps work fine. I have a brand new phone with great service provider - it’s gotta be the app. *update* after this review the developer contacted me about the issues. It’s not fixed- but the fact that they read reviews and try to improve has me feeling good about yahoo sports again. I’ll keep checking back to see for improvements. But good on them for at least reading feedback from the people using the app. :)
Stop sending adds as “notifications”.
by Typical Outlier on 2018/10/05 16:57
Until recently this app was perfect. I use it often and rely on it for scores, news and relevant info. It was one of the first apps I downloaded when I purchased my first iPhone years ago. I don’t know if some policy changed with iOS 12 but I receive adds now masked as “notifications”. Stop this BS. Stop. It. Stop trying to ruin everything in the world with additional income streams. If you can’t afford to run the app, cut something irrelevant or unused. I do not want adds as “notifications”. I DO want relevant notifications on my favorite sports and teams. Learn the difference.
Struggling
by Dnegs12 on 2018/04/28 20:24
Up until recently, this was a 5 star app. Lately though, it crashes, freezes, or scores just don’t update more often than not. I’ve tried the options suggested by the developer in some of the other reviews such as making sure I had the most up to date version and even uninstalled and reinstalled, but that did not work. An example would be when I look a MLB score, the entire MLB scoreboard tells me the Cubs/Brewers are in the top of the 6th, but when I tap the game to get the stats, I am suddenly back to the 5th inning. I figured Yahoo would figure it out, but everyone who works there must be on vacation. If the performance isn’t fixed soon I may need to look at a different app altogether.
This app is wonderful!
by sarahtonin16 on 2018/09/10 03:34
It gives me updates faster than other apps, and it’s not clogged with ads. The only reason I’m giving this 4 stars is because after the latest update, the notifications are having problems. They keep getting cut off (like the team name might not completely show). I have bigger/bolder text on my phone, but even with that, the notifications never seemed to be an issue at all. Which might not be a huge problem, but I use the notifications for score updates and such, since I can’t always have the app open or watch/listen to the game.
Yahoo please.
by Driggity Drank on 2018/06/29 03:47
What happened to this app?? It used to be my go-to app for my NBA scores and news, but now half of the articles aren't even legible. They just look like a cluster of links without a readable format to them. I mean does anyone actually proof-read the articles before they're put into the app? I'll see an article that is actually interesting only to find that I have to sift lines of links/sources to find where the article actually starts. I'm not saying that all of the news reports are like this, just a good majority of them. I used to think this app was coded better than ESPN's and BR's, but now it seems like it's right on par with them. Hopefully these issues can be resolved and be a thing of the past.
Still buggy
by 527472 on 2019/04/26 14:33
I’ve been using the app for a few years, but there is a bug that goes from a version to a version and doesn’t get fixed. The app automatically adds Major League Soccer and International Friendlies to my favorite sports. I remove them, but the next time I open the app, the two sports are there. I tried everything: removing all my favorite sports and adding them back, turning the phone on and off, but every time the app adds the two sports. I even tried switching to a different sport app but I’m used to the Yahoo app and it has decent features otherwise so I keep coming back...to the same bug.
Amazing!
by Mcaruso142 on 2019/09/08 12:18
This is the only App I found that allows you to watch NFL games for free. Yes, you are limited to a selection of games (5-6 per week)(which in-itself is still amazing granted it’s FREE), and the games are 30-45 seconds behind live, but still, allowing you to watch games for free totally separates this app from competition. As for news and alerts, Yahoo appears to be covering all the new material pretty quickly, so that’s a big plus as well. Overall, the app is a great find; I would highly recommend.
Suggestion!
by Luke31500 on 2018/01/16 03:15
It would be extremely helpful if you made custom groupings for the scores I want to view. For example, when viewing scores from college basketball, I would love to be able to select Custom instead of, say, “Top 25” or “Big 12” so I could view Top 25 and Big 12 games on the same tab. Implementing this would be incredibly helpful for college sports fans that care about their teams, conferences, as well as the relevant, Top 25 matchups. Thanks for your consideration. This is a top notch sports app.
Great App, one lingering bug
by Pizzertron on 2019/07/11 18:57
The app is great and works very well! My (iPhone 8) one issue is that when I get a notification that links to a story, I’ll touch the notification which opens the app to the story and things load/display great, then all of a sudden the text of the story disappears. Nothing I do seems to bring it back. I have to try and find the story by navigating to the section of the app that lists it, select it there and then things are fine. Only time it’s an issue is when I touch the notification. Fixing that bug would be amazing! 🙏
01glen
by 01glen on 2019/02/21 22:09
This is a so so app. It has the information about some of the teams I like, but short on info about injuries. Place a feature that lists injury reports for each team, how long they’ll be out and their status. A lot of the stories are old too. Everything revolves around the yankees, Ed Sox and dodgers. Some Small market teams are teams that win on lower budgets, and with rosters that are not store bought winners with high salary players. ******Would be great if when using the "game" function if yahoo would include a sound feature to it. Listening to a game while you're team is on the road, and not on tv would really make the game feature a whole lot better.
Super Bowl flop
by Miss-Claudia on 2018/02/05 00:15
Tried to stream the super bowl, but airplay wasn’t supported. Would have been willing to pay for access to a Super Bowl stream on the big screen. Let’s break that down, I would have PAID a one time price to see a stream of mostly ads, with a tiny bit of football and halftime content, but in 2018 this still doesn’t seem to exist. Guess I’m sitting this one out, let me know when the NFL finally gets with the times. Thanks for trying Yahoo!
Awesome For Fand
by Kitkatkatyperry on 2019/02/25 08:42
Thanks for developing an outstanding easy to use App. Yahoo Sports makes being a fan at any level easy. I follow multiple teams in all different sports and can get there in seconds. The only improvement that I think could be improved is the rosters. I would Like to see the roster have an option to sort by position and who is active, on the 40 man roster, or on the disabled list. Thanks again for providing an outstanding sports app second to none.
Gone from bad to worse!
by 2nyy8 on 2019/07/03 20:02
This app was good. But then it went from bad to worse. I deleted it because I couldn’t stand it anymore. The scores and updates are not in real time. The information so late I have already received it from other apps. The notifications are all messed up. I checked off to be notified about information about my particular team. It worked for awhile although it was not in real time. Now I was getting information for every team in MLB for EVERYTHING! Change of pitchers, change of innings, scores, it was so annoying! So I deleted the app. I will find a new app. I know every app has issues but other apps fix their issues Score just gets worse. So, I’m done!
Best sports app out there
by sports1010 on 2018/04/14 16:00
I’ve been a user forever, but when it was called sports liar and the app has always been way more organized and user friendly than ESPN or the score. I love how you added player stats for every year in their careers. I use it everyday and I love it but I used to like reading the associated press articles before and after games and for some reason the app doesn’t have them anymore. Once that’s back in, it’ll be the perfect app
Awesome for streaming
by Loughery175 on 2018/02/04 23:32
I use this app to stream live football (not soccer) games, but if I wanted to watch tons of worthless ads I’d keep watching TV. Please let the “We’ll be right back” screen stay up. I would much rather hear the background music than another dose of advertising that I put up with everywhere else, everyday. Edit: Of course the one time I actually want to watch the ads (today, the Super Bowl) I get the same crap as always.
Somethings is off
by Killa mon on 2018/10/21 18:32
I’ve been using yahoo sports for awhile now, these days for me to read the news articles it’s like commercial after commercials the worse part is it lags or stops for me to read it real quick. I hope they fix these glitches. The score updates take awhile to load, I was trying to follow the dodgers game 7 for the NLCS and someone next to me with another sport app was cheering about something and I realized my score didn’t upload fast enough so I found out the dodgers won when I had one more out to go. Please yahoo help a brother out!
Miss the days of missing big plays? You're in luck!
by KeepItCrooked on 2019/01/06 18:59
If you are missing the days where big plays fly by you due to service interruptions, you're in luck! This app will fail to provide live games only at the most inopportune times, and boy does it never disappoint! It's even invented new ways you kick you off, such as randomly locating you in a blackout area for minutes at a time. Don't worry though, restarting the app or your phone is ineffective. You simply have to wait until the Yahoo Sports gods grant you another shot at seeing your team in the playoffs. What a great deal Yahoo made with your wireless provider! They didn't even have to provide appropriate capacity to handle the demand!
Getting worse
by Tazman_OH on 2019/08/23 01:51
First, they can't ever leave it alone. They are always changing stuff to make it worse. Second, they appear at first to have plenty of content, but honestly if it is not a main sport it does not work right. Third, I have to have notifications completely off or I end up getting tons I had unchecked. Last, they claim to give free games, but they are the same you get for free on broadcast television most of the time. Plus if you try to airplay it to your tv so you actually see it they tell you that's not allowed. For what reason!!! Is it free or not?! I will be finding a different sports app in the future.
Best Sports App, don’t let the name yahoo fool you
by Hi133 on 2018/05/19 22:39
I’ve been using this app for over 4 years now and I’ve never once thought of switching to another app. This app is so well designed and user friendly, you can organize all of your favorite teams from basically any sport, set reminders for game times, read sports news, check scores, and so much more. Don’t let the yahoo name fool you, this app is better than the competitors.
Good
by tomcut on 2018/01/24 16:47
I think this is the best sports app in the App Store. The app logo is very simple but powerful because you know what app it is simply by looking at it. It’s a very popular app that I think it’s very easy to use and navigate through. It’s a great app for all ages and is very user friendly. You can set notifications on your favorite teams. I have had no issues with this app, and use it daily to check my scores. It’s a free app, so its definite must download app.
Best sports app for most sports.
by Jctusa2011 on 2019/10/06 01:10
I’ve been using this app since it was called Sportacular. It’s THE best app I’ve ever used for NFL football by far. Has many streaming games along with play by play and up to date scores. Great news stories, recaps, etc. Very good for college football, NBA and college football. Pretty good for BPL. Only disappointment has been golf where scores tend to lag way behind, but app is worth 5 stars plus on basis of football alone!
Best sports app
by meghan72015 on 2019/11/03 14:29
I’ve been using this app for 10 years, hands down the best sports app out there. It’s easy to use and super helpful. I set up alerts and you can filter just to see your favorite teams. It keeps me up to date with news and stats. You get to watch free live games all the time (games you actually want to watch) this is one of the only apps where the ads on it aren’t completely annoying.
App Issues
by Msleah25 on 2018/11/06 07:42
Love that the app gives the latest information and I can find whatever sport score I want to. Also can watch live videos. However, The app worked better before the updates. When you read articles they constantly pause and you can’t rewind. Also it doesn’t automatically move to next article like it used to.
Suffers from US-centric neglect
by Malkamachine on 2019/10/03 18:46
The app might have been rated of higher quality 5 years ago but this is 2019. Seems to be suffering from neglect consistent with Yahoo’s overall demise. The Europa league organizes teams into groups similar to the champions league, yet somehow year after year the product team at Yahoo can’t implement this in the app. Instead all 32 teams are listed in one massive league table. Embarrassing. If you guys ever get around to making that one simple change, perhaps also enable the user to rearrange the order of competitions in the scores view as well? Not hard to do. Good luck.
Wow, this app keeps getting worse
by Old news on 2017/10/28 13:58
Another 2017 update: the voting for which team will win appears to be fake. It shows my vote counted, but when looking at the map says no one in my state voted. 2017 Update: support for women's sports is terrible. At one point last week they showed a game as being over when it was the end of the 3rd quarter. They also had one teams score WRONG by 10 points. 2016 review: They solved their data issue, but now the layout it terrible. The fonts are too small, and you can't make them bigger. This app really just keeps stepping backwards. It used to be my go-to sports app, now I have to find one that is useful.
Not working
by Afrenchy1975 on 2019/08/30 02:13
Sometime during the off season of football I notice the app stop working. I ignored it and figured it would be fixed. Football season is upon us and I redownloaded the app and it’s still not working for me!! I deleted the app, downloaded it again and still doesn’t work. A couple days later I noticed an “update” option. I thought “OK, this will get it going”. Nope. Still getting a message, sorry so slow, try later or reset your account. So I did that also. Still does not not work. I have an iPhone 8+ with plenty of storage and power. So guess I’m just giving up on this app. It worked great last year.
College Sports Coverage Needs Work
by RScannix on 2019/01/26 21:24
For the most part, I really like the app, but when it comes to college sports, particularly college basketball, I opt to use ESPN’s app. The following are the main reasons why: 1. Notifications for start of games tend to be late, particularly for teams from mid-major conferences 2. Almost complete lack of news alerts or stats for women’s basketball. 3. Game notifications do not distinguish between different college teams from the same school. In late fall, I might see a game start notification for, say, “Mississippi State v. Florida,” and I am left to wonder whether the game is football, men’s basketball, or women’s basketball. ESPN is the only app that I know of that actually distinguishes what sport the alert is referring to, and it would be nice to see the competition fight to at least keep up in this area.
Great app, one easy request though.
by Molecularman90 on 2019/01/07 16:26
I’ve used this app for a very long time now. It has everything I want in a sports app, however, it has a very dumb flaw. I use it to look up point spreads and over/under totals, and the games that will be shown on the app cover the spread and point total lines with a little orange banner that says “Watch Team 1 v. Team 2 - right in the app!” All I’m asking is to move the spread and total lines above that banner so they can be seen on all games.
Won’t even open now
by Cdanselm on 2017/11/13 16:09
Yahoo! Sports was my go-to app for my favorite sports teams, but unfortunately it stopped working several weeks ago and won’t even open on my phone. Checked for updates, but nothing since early Oct. I guess they don’t care about their product. I noticed the content on their website - using my laptop - is also inconsistent lately i.e. out of date.
Great app - please fix issue
by nflfootball28 on 2019/03/08 16:57
This is one of my favorite apps. Could you please fix the issue where the dates for favorite teams future games on the home tab no longer show up? I utilized this a lot to see when all of my favorite teams would be playing next and with the recent update the dates have disappeared and it only shows times. Thank you
Yahoo sports is great
by Mrfarm on 2018/05/29 04:48
But any sport that has a delay (Atlanta Braves right now) simply does not show up in the app. I know it’s a new day but I mean come on guys the game is still being played how do you not have a slot for a live game?? Every game shown is for the next day and I know the braves has a huge delay but come on it’s not that hard to show the live stats for a delayed game Update: the game is there but still not listed as live. You have to go back a day to see the score.
Bugs upon submitting bugs
by jnKillTeam on 2019/07/31 04:49
I have to give this app a 1 star as the “submit feedback” form constantly freezes and ultimately crashes when I attempt to submit feedback via the app. I have also noticed a recurring issue in which the conversation section in MLB games only displays the “start a conversation” button, when I tap it nothing happens, and all of the previous conversations are gone until I force restart the app. The conversations will appear for a period of time until the broken cycle starts again, appears to be some a memory leak. Please fix and I will change my review to 5 star.
New format is super annoying
by cj benn on 2019/03/15 18:28
What’s the deal with having some random video showing up at the top of my home page that has nothing to do with my favorites? It takes up most of the screen and it is hard to scroll past it without accidentally activating it. The app used to display the scores of my favorite teams at the top and a list of videos and news items related to my favorites off to the side. That worked for me. This version will no longer be my go-to app for getting sports scores. Get rid of the “in your face” video!
Simply the Best Sports App
by MichaelMiori on 2017/12/08 06:48
I’ve been obsessed with sports since before I can remember and need to check scores, schedules, and stats daily. I’ve tried out all the major sports apps and Yahoo Sports is just far superior to all the rest. A Must own app for every sports fan. *Tip: Be sure to activate the “dark theme”in the settings because it is much cleaner and aesthetically pleasing than the default white theme.
Latest Update...Something went wrong.
by Sick of the TCF app on 2018/04/02 00:22
Is this happening to other people too. Instead of bringing you to the scores you click on it brings you to the app in the App Store? I use the Yahoo Fantasy app for my baseball team. When I am in the fantasy app and click on scores and select a certain game, it doesn’t bring me to the game stats anymore. It brings me here. To the App Store then I have to click “open” on here to access the game stats. Please fix if this is not just happening to me.
Switch from ESPN and you’ll never go back
by CubsWon2016 on 2019/03/20 03:41
Gives you every piece of information you could possibly need about any matchup, player or team. Individuals’ season over season stats, game logs from last few weeks, highlight videos, playoff standings, betting lines, full team schedules, what TV stations the game is on etc. Only piece it’s missing is witch college/ HS each athlete attended.
Autoplay of the featured football game...
by Giuliani on 2019/11/03 21:01
In the box score section makes the app slow. I have to wait for the video to load before i can swipe down to look at scores and upcoming games. Very annoying. I’m also not a fan of the swipe UI decision to switch between scores, news etc. The app often misinterprets a scrolling motion down for a swipe across. Drives me nuts. Is there a way for you to adjust the length of the swipe motion because any slight lateral motion seems to be recognized as a swipe.
Still alright
by jDizzle8291 on 2019/03/28 22:10
I often find things breaking with new releases, but that’s with everything, right? Well, every night when I’m looking at NHL scores and go to the next day, it shows today’s games for tomorrow or vice-versa. It’s not intuitive enough to remember what games are when. Also with opening day baseball here, I noticed there is no inning (top or bottom) designator on the main screen when looking at all the MLB scores at once for that day. Unless of course I’m just blind, which is very possible.
Slow to see its main function, the scores
by Azn447 on 2017/11/23 06:11
I used to love this app. I used to recommend it to everyone. I had this app since it first came out before it was bought out by yahoo, so I’m kinda torn but the scores take forever to load now. I try to see all games for NCAAB or NHL and it just won’t load. Not even the previous day will load. I think I may have to look for a new scores app. Hopefully they will fix the problem in the next update and the load time will decrease...
Great design, solid streaming, more bugs and battery use than I’d like
by ScamBoss on 2019/02/11 22:39
Easy to use with rich modern graphics, but has some noticeable performance snags and bugs (especially the Headlines tab). Also a bit of a battery hog. Streaming NFL games for the 2018 season was delightfully easy with better than expected video quality on mobile data and WiFi. Overall a very good app that could benefit from some more optimization.
Surprised how great this app is!
by akief8795 on 2019/10/17 01:47
I already have a plethora of sports apps and this app just takes it to another level. I never miss any of the biggest news drops and stay up to date on all the latest sports news. This app is a must for any avid sports fan. I love the interface and the way it’s set up, and being able to watch live NFL games for free is gold.
Used to update quickly...
by Checkerfanatic on 2018/09/30 18:11
I like the layout of this app and it used to update current plays quickly, but they must have laid off staff. For NFL games, it will take several minutes to update the latest plays. Different screens will have different info, like the main NFL page showing all games and scores will show the Bears possessing the ball and 1st and 10, then when you click on the game it shows the Bucs in possession 2nd and 7. The app is minutes apart within itself, not just to the actual game. Please allocate some resources to make this usable for fantasy again.
