The Athletic App Reviews

  • Surpasses expectations

    By mt57
    Outstanding sports coverage. Lots of analytics. No social justice sociology!!!! Love it.
  • Well designed, great content

    By NexxGenMedia
    Can’t wait until they cover the packers better. I do suggest considering another design for main articles feed. It’s a bit hard to process stories as you’re scrolling. Maybe it’s the legibility of text over image too much going on. Other than that love it.
  • The app is fine. Beware the content.

    By tominco
    Ok I have no complaints about the App, but I question the content. Yes supposedly well written articles, but they are all columnist opinion pieces. The Athletic is advertised as replacing your local sports pages, but there is no article about last night’s game, roster moves, or anything that your beat writer would provide. I for one am dissatisfied.
  • App is great the writing is better

    By Nominal
    Good sports writer is what brings you in. Great sports writing keeps you coming back. My subscription is well worth it. Great job.
  • You get the quality you expect for what you pay for

    By EonsPast
    I’m amazed at the quality of journalism from this site. It’s not for people who just want the box score and the same quotes that every sports site is running. It takes an in depth look at everything you care about but with none of the overly opinionated nonsense that’s plagued ESPN and fox sports. I really can’t wait for them to expand their coverage to more cities soon because they’re on a roll so far.
  • Great UI !

    By Scorpi013
    The user interface in this app is top notch! The articles written in the “Athletic” are reliable and there is no ads pop-up.
  • This is the Sports subscription you need

    By Npr1977
    This is an all star production. Great analysis and prose. George has put together a great product!
  • Meh

    By Geneseo98
    The “lede” story in the app too often isn’t tied to one of my favorites or the biggest story in sports. I have to dig way too hard to find things that are relevant to me compared to ESPN and Bleacher’s app.
  • Awesome Site and App

    By Pafrican
    The Athletic has absurdly talented writers and with the new soccer site it is a no brainer to subscribe. App is well done and like how stories are collapsed after they’ve been read.
  • Flawless
