  • Fav sports app. Make Apple Watch app! Nov 11, 2017

    By haveatomato
    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)

    Awesome app! Only complaint isn't with the app but with the broadcast. Some games won't let you use wifi to view them. You have to use your network data which is a little strange but I get it. This app is great though. Top marks....

  • Favorite sports app out there Nov 24, 2018

    By Bernard Edwards
    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 >:-<

    Only complaint, not available on my smart tv. Just commentating on the games, not actually able to watch, like on my phone or tablet. My only source for live games, so, I can't complain too harshly. Plus, cable and tv app options are too pricey.

  • Still buggy Nov 27, 2020

    By m527472
    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. Update 2020: In addition to the bugs they wouldn’t fix, the app constantly fails to load data. It became so annoying that I finally decided to get rid of it. I’m using ESPN app now.

    Great when it works. But every few times I go to the watch tab, it completely freezes my phone so I have to take the battery out. None of the updates have fixed this issue. I'll change my review score when this gets fixed.
  • More Politics and Terrible App Sep 30, 2017

    By wathan99
    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.

    ZERO experience watching live games. Says it works but it's always been a lie. Show us proof it works...nothing Yahoo mentioned here has worked before and it doesn't work now either. NEED video proof...I have officially just switched over from Sportacular after over a decade. I highly DO NOT RECOMMEND that you use this app. There are much better alternatives with companies not so disingenuous. Worst customer service, employees and C-suiters work @yahoo #inferior

  • Add a “history” news section and fix sign in May 24, 2019

    By OrgandBlkMan
    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.

    The problem I'm having with this app is that it stops, pauses, stutter skips. It was all good 👍 until this started happening around the beginning of December. I've done all I can. Restart and nothing. I like the app, IF the problem isn't fixed, then I will have to let go of the app. I want to continue watching sports and catching up on scores.

  • Freaking awesomeness!! Dec 30, 2019

    By LuisWuis
    Yahoo Sports app is awesome!!! Now with all the games streaming live FOR FREE, it’s definitely going to make other sports live streaming services think twice about having people pay for what Yahoo Sports is doing. Working overseas puts a limitation on what you can see from back in the states. But with this app, it helps everyone who is doing their part to serve our country (both civilian and military) to feel Ike they have a piece of home with them now that they’re able to see the games live wherever we/they are at. Good job Yahoo!!!

  • Amazing! Sep 8, 2019

    By Mcaruso142
    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.

    I don't have cable sports channels so this app is perfect for me. I was able to watch ESPN and NFL network games that would not have been available to me. There is a little bit of a buffering problem and I wish more games were available. I would have liked to have seen more Bears games. But for a free app it was great!

  • Need to fix. Used to be good Apr 18, 2018

    By MansonsMom
    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”. Oct 5, 2018

    By Typical Outlier
    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.

  • This app is wonderful! Sep 10, 2018

    By sarahtonin16
    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.

  • Out of market games Jan 29, 2020

    By Aaron Devlin
    If you lived in an different state why aren’t we allowed to watch other football games behind just the local games ? I would love to watch other games behind just the local games . every time the games are on sometimes they’re extremely delayed . I wanted to watch the Pacers play tonite since Victor is coming back tonite since he injury our cable provider doesn’t give us the station that show the games on switch is extremely unfortunate I would love for yahoo sports to start showing pacers games through the app has well has the colts games and other games has well behind just two games!

    Can only watch a couple games live. Usually it's the most popular games you can find on every other outlet to watch games. You also can't mirror onto a TV while you're watching a live game, this app won't let you, so I assume you can't connect with an HDMI either. If you're getting this app solely to watch live games I don't recommend. If you're getting it for sports updates and info then it's a good app.

  • Somethings is off Oct 21, 2018

    By Killa mon
    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!

  • Awesome for streaming Aug 28, 2020

    By Loughery175
    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. And now they remove all ability to comment to prevent logical and reasonable people from reminding these idiots that no lives matter smfh

  • Struggling Apr 28, 2018

    By Dnegs12
    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.

  • Yahoo please. Jun 29, 2018

    By Driggity Drank
    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.

    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.

  • Only works occasionally Jan 4, 2021

    By $&()-)
    I used this app throughout the 2020 season and had trouble from the beginning with the video freezing and audio going out. Later on it had trouble loading. I have an iPhone X and always keep it up-to-date and always load app updates right away. Even tried deleting and reinstalling the app to clear things up and it only got worse. The last game of the season I ended up having to listen to the whole game on the radio. I emailed yahoo sports and they answered suggesting that I do the things that I had already done to attempt to correct the problem and had no other solutions.
