This app has been quite slow and buggy especially recently, and drains battery power more than most apps on my iPhone 6. It’s been crashing a lot since updating to iOS 11 and getting the latest update of the app. Despite its shortcomings I’ve been using it for at least 3-4 years, since I’m an avid fantasy sports player. I’ve seemingly always had issues with it’s various incarnations of design and interface, not to mention ESPN’s terrible default league settings for football, baseball and basketball w/ short benches and lack of IR/DL spots - but that’s a subject for elsewhere. The app should have all of the same management capabilities as on their website, but it hasn’t ever. People probably use the app for team management more often than the actual website these days. It should be as capable and user friendly because of this, but it isn’t. I also play fantasy sports on Yahoo!, which in my experience has far superior and more enjoyable leagues and app. I will still use this ESPN app despite my frustrations with many aspects of it, because I like to draft and have teams on several sites/apps. I at least hope the developers continue to try to improve the design of this app and the general user experience within it.
11 years ago my family started a fantasy league using ESPN and it’s app. We chose it because of being user friendly and simple to figure out (since there were a few of us including me who had never played before). A few years later I was asked to take over as League Mangager/Commish. As a new Commish I loved all of the fun extras that I had to create excitement and smack talk including Smack Talk videos from actual NFL Players, power rankings that were auto populated and could also be customized, along with others. Now it is hard just to change league settings and send general emails to the league. I was also very diligent in writing a League Manager Note and creating a poll weekly, but stopped because nobody was reading it because it was not easily found in the APP. I think it would be great if that was one of the 1st things you see. Another big bummer is the deletion of all the customized awards in the “Trophy Case”. 11 years of trophies - GONE! And I didn’t even get notice that they were going so I didn’t copy them done anywhere else. I would really like to see all of that come back! The current app is and site is not my favorite! I am looking to start a second league and I may go somewhere else. PLEASE! PLEASE! Stop taking things away!
I have been playing fantasy sports for many years now and by far ESPN has the worst site ever. Idc about the app I mean for fantasy baseball and football it is terrible. For baseball u can only have 1 player on the DL and 3 bench players on your roster. This is horrible if u actually pay attention to it and want to play because u cannot change starting pitchers or players that do not have a game the day u r playing. For both sports the standings r screwed up. I have more points than a guy in my league and we have the same record but I am below him in the standings because he has had less "points allowed" than I have. So espn how am I supposed to have a defense in fantasy that stops the other team just curious I kinda want to know. I'm just glad the playoffs didn't start this week because I wouldn't have just left a review on the App Store I would have emailed someone to complain about this crap. I'm sure the ones with fantasy hockey and basketball have problems that I wouldn't understand with their teams but I don't have a fantasy basketball or hockey team and if I did it wouldn't be with espn. After this year I have decided I WILL NOT be playing any fantasy sport with espn next year and the years after unless these necessary changes r made. Ps If u want professional fantasy sports I recommend using yahoo they have been my favorite site to use
I’ve been playing SFTC since it began in 2008. When they decided to retire the Streak app, and add Streak to their new all-encompassing Fantasy app, it’s been bad. For starters, several message boards for props are down on a daily basis. You have to go to the espn Streak mobile site to look at the message board. What’s the point of the app if I have to use the mobile site? In order to see all matchups for a particular day, you have to click the “See all matchups” link. Let us see all the matchups without having to click another link to see them; instead of just seeing the forced espn props that they choose for us to see. I know one extra click is not a big deal, but it could be the difference between getting a prop in before it locks. Within the last few weeks, within comments on the message boards, the links to “load more comments” don’t work. Every time I try to load more comments, it just spins and never shows them. The message boards used to have some decent information and conversation from members. When they changed it to Facebook only members who can chat, it ruined the message boards. Tonight, I tried to post a comment twice on one of the hockey games, and it didn’t register my comment. Either go back to a SFTC dedicated app that works or fix this dreadful Streak part of the Fantasy app.
The interface of this app makes it harder than it needs to be to move between the things you want to move between, such as actions you want to take and information you want to see. Many things you wish to accomplish take two or three steps. I can justifiably assert that things are harder in this app because I have extensive familiarity with the Yahoo Fantasy Sports app. The Yahoo Fantasy Sports app allows you to accomplish what you are trying to accomplish much more easily and with fewer steps. Not only do things take more steps in the ESPN app, but it is also often harder to find the button you are looking for and things are often poorly labeled. If you don’t know what I mean by the things I say in this review, try the Yahoo Fantasy Sports app and the things that I mean will become more clear to you. The only reason I am using the ESPN app is because I joined a second league where the commissioner uses ESPN Fantasy Football and if he has been using ESPN Fantasy for a while, I was not about to try to persuade him it is inferior. I feel that the creators of the ESPN Fantasy Football app wanted to make the app SEEM like it is better because it is more technical and requires more savviness from the user, but really they just made a harder-to-use, more frustrating, less efficient, and less effective app.
