Stopped Working For some reason, the app stopped working on my HTC phone yesterday. I've uninstalled it and reinstalled it twice since, to no avail. Update: one week later, and no resolution. Nice!
Great when it works A great app when it actually loads. For some reason it hangs for ages and even reinstalling it hasn't fixed the issue.
One of the best app. I trust bbc more than any other website.
Good The app provides up to date information on sports around the globe. Too much attention on football compare to other sports.
Great app No widget with update
Great app. Crashes often though, and takes long in loading.
Great app but no widgets
Widget Where is the widget?
Best sports news app All results I need accurate and up to date
Am enjoy it Keep it up
Also no widget
Sports App Good range of sports for an Englishman, would like a permanent link through to the main bbc site.
Excellent App BBC is best news channel in the world in same way BBC Sports is best place to get accurate sports news
Used to be very good but laboriously slow now Takes forever to load images, makes it unusable. Website is x10 faster
sport app some times is too slow in alert.when goal scored i dont get an alert even if am already set all item in my alert.
Slow, slow and slow. Last update was very poor. Stories not loading . slow, this app takes forever to load.
Spoiler Alert If you want to know the results before you get a chance to watch (F1 for example when the Beeb don't have it live) then use this App. If not, DON'T. Typical Beeb. No warnings, "look away" etc. First time I used it as wanted to know when coverage is and Bamm, straight in with results. Thank BBC. Rubbish. Uninstalling now.
Too slow Great when it works : but needs to load more quickly !!
Let's me know events by alerts It is a reasonable app. Let's me know when my league 2 team score. Would be nice if tapping the alert would go to the correct page rather then last seen.
Gone backwards Was tedious and slow before update and has navigated further south with new update. Really, guys? It doesn't stop loading when I launch the app now...
Brings old memories when as kid growing up watching European football
Used to be OK but now I'm uninstalling as it never connects. It is particularly annoying to be repeatedly told to check my network connection. That is NOT the problem and I can, in fact, connect to the BBC website without issue
Too slow a times. Can't access other football leagues apart from UK leagues
Stopped working on WiFi? No idea why, will not work when connected to a WiFi connection. Used to be great.
The best sports portal
Became so poor after the last update Does not load at all, I think there is a problem with their website, not opening anywhere..... Why BBC?
Love it Best app in the world⚽
Slow at times
Only English football App is bit slow! But the main thing missing is alerts other than English football! At least give alerts of la liga's big 3 and serie a
Skysports app replacement App does what it says on the tin. Just don't go messing up the app like what skysports did with theirs.
Excellent app for sports news. Customizable menu to move up the sports you follow most. And the only app that seems to work for F1 coverage.
Bbc sport app Great for keeping up with your teams
Sport fantastic range of sports and indepth knowledgeable information
Always loading.. Nice idea but it always seems to load so much more than it needs it. Constantly watching the wheel spin..
Sasha from Russia! Great app! Was waiting long for it! Thanks! BBC Sport the best so far!
Great Sporting alerts app Living in the states and supporting a team other than a premier side, I've found myself on and off the BBC site since Google Now doesn't give great goal alerts etc. With BBC now letting you customise your views and setup alerts I now have effectively a British Sport Google now. If Chesterfield score I know about it, if there's a F1 race I know who's on pole and who wins. If there's a wicket in the test match, etc. Thanks BBC
Awesome! I just Love this app for the Live updates it brings through the special 'My Alerts' feature and the in-depth commentary given for all sporting action. BRAVO!
Used to be good But now slow to load and freezes all the time
Bugs "Rolling football news" has news from other sports. Fix it or change the headline
Good It making so easy to find news
Great app This app is cool
The best so far...
BBC Sport Carries all sports and is informative and up to date
Easy to use
Good Easy to use
Awful sports coverage Wanted to see Bangladesh vs India 2015 one Day game updates. Useless application for me Sorry :(
To much advertising This new version pops up an advertisement too often.
uninstall update is terrible goodbye
Really slow now Seems to take forever to load articles now. I usually quit the app and open in web browser now because I can't be bothered waiting for 60 seconds to load a single article...
Every time you open the page you see nothing! After getting into the application it takes ages to refresh and sometimes it does not refresh at all.You will have to manually choose a category twice or thrice and then finally there will be something to read about on the page.Lots of bugs to be worked on!
What's the point I can see the headlines but clicking on it gives me a loading pages that never loads. Used to work ok but now is frustrating me so much. I'd give it - 1 star if I could because it is actually teasing me with news headlines that I can't find out more about! How look is Hooper banned for? Why is burgess out? Better go find an app that works I guess....
Decent but Why doesn't this app keep or save the browsed news pages for offline reading just like the BBC news app does. That could be better because my data always runs out before getting time to go through the news. Otherwise its an awesome app.
Initial data load takes a long time At first it seemed like I cain't reach any information. Don't know if it's the app's fault or the server/service that it connects to. In the end though the app loaded all the stories and it works fine.
BBC Sport Used to be ok but its becoming a dog to load. They keep changing it. They say for the better. Am switching to other app as this takes too long to load.
Good app One small critic. To watch videos you must download BBC media player. They should embed this within BBC sport app.
Rubbish Keeps stating page not available- check network connections-try again later-connection ok FIX IT cannot put a comment without giving 1 ☆ No ☆
Used to work well Now I just get "! Sorry this page is temporarily unavailable, please check back later..." There's no option or function for me to reach any other page. On Nexus 4
Some good articles but takes too long to open. Also won't play and video if outside the UK. Not much good to me so. Time to uninstall.
Too many updates.Every time you do an update I have to uninstall and install again and the app.is worse.It was working fine about two years ago.It is now crap.Why don't you leave things alone or give us the opportunity not to have updates.Have you read the reviews you are getting they are crap YOU are crap.
No notifications Great app just never receive alerts compared to my old phone which has the same setup
BBC sports app Hard to navigate to the sport I want, when I get there,it shows pint sized vdo, but it never plays, it's just rubbish. Don't down load it,it's just wastes your time.
Sports I like to keep up on my Sport. (football, rugby and cricket) and this helps me to. Great app.
Slow! A curate's egg of an an app. I love the alerts, that works really well. But the rest of it is really slow - I reckon 9 times out of 10 when I start it up, it times out before loading anything other than the ad. I know I've got a slow connection but that's ridiculous. I've a Samsung Galaxy A3 on Android 4.4.4.
Excellent Works great and the alerts are excellent. Would be outstanding if different custom alerts could have different sounds. However this may be a function of the operating system rather than the app.
Nice interface but far from perfect Live feeds take far too long to load and at times the headline stories on the homescreen are questionable. E.g. a couple of weeks ago a Real Madrid 0-0 draw was top, whereas to find the premier league results required navigating through several screens.
Alerts don't work My notifications and alerts don't work anymore so I'm deleting it. I'm on the BBC webpage all the time anyway.
PREDICTOR GAME The predictor game seems not to be working. I cant login my account let alone submit my score predictions . There are some features on this app that dont work with Android 5.0. Voting also doesn't work with this android version same goes for the predictor game
Permissions Can you remove control vibrator from your list of permissions? My phone vibrates when I receive alerts from this app even though vibration is set to off.
Slow and very unreliable Not updated since July, whats up BBC. Automatically refreshes when the app is open, this usually causes it to freeze and I must resort to closing and reopening the app
Used to be awesome now waste of time Get it working like it used to and will give the 5 stars back
Slow and a drainer Very slow and doesn't close properly so drains battery, HTC one M8
Doesn't work Won't work on my Samsung Tab 4. Works great on S5. FRUSTRATING!!!!
Show more button doesn't work Used to love this app but now I can't see articles & videos under show more button. Also seems to be running slower than it used to.
Not working for nearly a week Like others here just get network error message when opening. Has been like this for nearly a week and was getting slower and slower for weeks before. "Helpful" screen tells you to report the error but doesn't tell you how. Used to be a great app but now a waste of space
Lovely though Would need news on more leagues. Please expand
Used to be a 5*, Used to be awesome. Now it doesnt load. Please sort it out.
Little change can be done Awesome could include highlights or spl videos
Comprehensive BBC is best news service in the world. Autoststting app is annoying, though. ?
Rubbish performance Takes forever to load stories. Just go back to older version. Its a lot better than this one
BBC Sport One thing I like to have this its you can even scroll up to where the last time u visted the news application
Lineups gone? I have checked a few times and cannot see the team lineups that used to show on fixtures. Otherwise it's a fantastic app, probably one of the most used on my android
Slow, slow and slow. Last update was very poor. Stories not loading . slow, this app takes forever to load. Needs an urgent update.
Last update is shite.doesnt load, need to keep refreshing to get it to work..is there a new update in the works?
Worse than ever Connectivity issues and the homepage never shows on opening the app.
Used to be awesome now waste of time Get it working like it used to and will give the 5 stars back I still can't watch the videos although I have also updated your player
BBC Sport thanks for keeping me informed and upto date with all sports from Western Australia.
Sony xperia z3 compact. Widget won't load. Year later widget still will not load..
Rate this App Thanks for the App. It is better than others in it category.
Good but ruined with last update. Please roll back bbc, then I'll install again.
Lost ability to customise Used to be able to customise sports\teams - now I have to register an account. It's on my phone - Shouldn't need an online account for a local app. Every account created is another risk to hacking. No thanks
No Can't watch live tv sports. I mean I can read the live news anywhere. Don't bother downloading it
Awesome sports app It has live formula 1 testing session. That's awesome. I liked it allot!!
I've seen more adverts than i've read articles. Some pages only load ads and not the content. Please look into this.
One star is too much. I signed up to Liverpool fc updates, almost never get them but now suddenly getting English cricket notifications, shite app
Too bad The app appears too heavy and takes ages to open one page. Unlike it's sister app the BBC News, this is really bad and unfriendly. I'm keeping it just because of the Predictor section, otherwise I'd have removed it from my phone long ago. ???. I think you should consider improvements in its responsiveness and speed.
I don't like the latest update The latest update looks like it was just done and not edited. I like that you are trying to make the app easy to find results, fixtures et cetera. I recommend for the BBC sports app is that you go back to the old format, and for example the football section, you put fixtures, tables et cetera at the top of the page, and then put the stories under it. That is a good way to catch the viewers attention. Also, look at the ESPN FC app. It gives you more leagues than your app and is convenient.
Time zones A very good app but I would live it if you could let me change my time zone.
One star is enough I downloaded this app to listen your live commentary of international cricket matches. But unfortunately ---------not available. Any other way to listen?
Used to be one of my favourite apps... ...but now slow and crashes often. Will uninstall and just use the web page.
Great app! Much improved Much improved from earlier versions, this is very good for following your sports. User friendly and the alerts feature is great! All that is missing is a shortcut to "Live scores"
Power of technology! Anytime I need results of any kind of sports, its on BBC news at my mobile phone.
Not sharing statistics affects app Not sharing statistics affects app loading time , going from instant if statics is ticked to 20 seconds unticked
Hmmmm Used to be perfect now it's a pain BBC if it's not broke don't try and fix it latest update sucks
Still broken Please fix this once-useful app. Links to articles just go to white screen since last update.
B B C Sports App (Worldwide) Like it for its detailed coverage.
So many ads Used to love this app but since the last update, I'm really annoyed by a number of ads.
Video not available on this device. Plugin is installed.
Slow Way too slow and quite frankly I can't be bothered to
Disgustingly slow Many pages never load at all.
Excellent reporting on all types of major sport.
Photos will not open
One of the best
Unstable BBC Sport is my go to app for sports news. Unfortunately it crashes an incredibly high amount. A stable BBC Sports app would easily get 5 stars.
Debilitating ads in the international version. Pop up ad on every new screen loaded is absurd and I will be removing until this is fixed up. Disappointing I have been using the app for years and love it. To aggressive in ads BBC take it back a notch
Notification problems The thing I loved most about this app was the notifications, when my football teams are playing I get notified but now notifications don't work at all on my Samsung S5.
What once was Used to be the best app, now crashes all the time. Just gets worse won't do anything, uninstalled!
Used to be great, awful now Used to be great but fails to load saying no connection most of the time now seemed to get worse after phone updated to marshmallow. Unusable....
Won't work at all Used to be my go-to sports app, now won't work at all
What happened to it ??? This update is a very poor one. Can't fund a single thing. Where the gossip column has gone ??? Can't even understand how to operate and its not what it is in the images. And videos I haven't seen one even after update
Thumbs Down Has to be one of the worst apps around. Loads real slow and navigation is painful.
Requires registration It was possible to configure My Sports without registration but not anymore.
Sport by the bucket load !!!!! Awesome easy to use and packed full of information.
Very wide coverage, top quality Superb app, excellent for text commentary and score alerts and some in depth analysis.
Good but could be beter The coverage is first class as expected by the beeb but why so much restricted content to being in the UK?
It's the BBC My cat purrs with delight at the appearance and my piano playing has improved exponentially. Wonderful.
BBC Sports app My daily fix; I could not go through the day without visiting BBC Sport at least once ....but b it's usually more than that. Great app. I love it.
Good app App is great for a brit living overseas lets you keep up with british sports. However, on the down side some of the videos dont work on my app
Amazing Life would not be the same without it
B B C l l Brilliant news thanks
Nice app highly tailored alerts, keeps me Up to date on my favourite sports
Great App The app helps me follow the latest information in the sports world. Very reliable too.
Sports Companion How all sport apps should be layed out and function. Perfect for following the sport that I love.
Nice sports App Love it. Man Utd to lift 2016/17 EPL
The app always restart
Love this app Accurate sports news and updates
Great app. Very informative and easy to use.
Great sports app
not as good as the original
Excellent sports app 1st rate sports app for covering all sports. Only negative is the fact it won't allow me to play any videos
My favorite sport app Layout is clear and intuitive. Results and reports are easy to find. Only gripe is the speed. Here in the US the pages often take a long time to load, sometimes triggering a timeout error.
Quite Cool A bit biased towards UK and European Sporting events, but eh, what does one expect? It's BBC Sports App with the emphasis here on the first B: 'British'.
Decent app... ...yet despite downloading the BBC media player I often have issues playing video
You broke it This used to be a great ap but ive uninstalled it twice in recent weeks and going to do so again. Everytime i try o open it it says there is no connection. I have to hit retry 3 or 4 times to get anything to happen. Then i might get 2 or 3 pages before it freezes again. Let me know if you get it sorted. Nothing wrong with the content but it just doesn't work.
Made it too awkward to use. It was an easy to use App. Ideal for a quick glance at your phone. Now it's just a bit harder to follow. Content still good though.
Great App, Very user friendly, only a few minor bugs Makes it very easy to keep upto date with all my sporting interests and teams. The personalised updates are especially great but the only slightly frustrating aspect is that clicking an update/notification doesn't automatically take me to the Webpage linked with the match in question but to an old page. Other r than that the app's been brilliant.
Love it I've always used this app, love the notifications when my team is playing. Having your own page with content you choose is awesome, only thing lacking is speed. Its a little slow loading, on my Z5 compact all other apps are fast at loading content but bbc sport lags a bit.
BBC Sport Best way of keeping up to date with blighty for all sports. Although some of the video clips you cannot access for some reason.
Great content, great design... but slow Best sporting app let down by slow content loading. Still, it's worth the wait!
Nice thing This app is very interesting. It keeps me update all the time. I get lot of sport news. I enjoy world of sport.
Best app Best way to stay up to date with sports the US media is too stupid to cover
Fantastic Sports App BBC is one of the pioneers in embracing technology (Media Globally), certainly this App deserves all credits.
All the sport all the time! The perfect app for keeping up to date with all sports. Everything you need right here.
Great way to keep up with my favorite sport But I can't play the videos. And I get notifications of sports results I don't want.
Really Good App! I've been using the BBC Sport app for the past 3 years and I depend on it almost everyday to keep me up to date with Soccer/Football news (primarily the BPL as that is what I keep track of). My one huge issue with the app is that the videos posted almost never work. My suspicion is that Copyright issues are the reason but it is hugely frustrating to have to deal with. Overall, very functional all with the occasional glitch.
Excellent app to keep up to date on world sports App works really well and the personalisation is very handy. Some of the videos don't play because I am accessing the app from Canada. Would highly recommend for a sports fan who follows a wide variety of sports
Best for Sport News My single source for sporting news. Always current, well presented, clear facts, great analysis and opinion, interesting features.
Great app for Sports Use the app everyday, all day for the sports news that I need to keep me updated.
Pages don't load Was a very good app till a few weeks back. Post the Olympics, quality has gone down. App is very slow and hangs all.the time.
Complete sports app. Gives me any news I want. Jus that it is sometimes very slow to load. It is the best option available anyway.
Time zones Please add timezones already....
Pete Big fan. Keeps me up-to date with all my sport even from Australia. Fast and easy to use.
Easy to find my sports All my sports in one area.
Does the job.
Keeps me on touch Good app. Keeps me updated.
Notification problems The thing I loved most about this app was the notifications, when my football teams are playing I get notified but now notifications don't work at all on my Samsung S5.
Impossible to read stuff offline, even if you're temporarily out of network the screen you were happily reading changes to the "unable to find network" one. Can't see how it's better than the website really....
Alwyn Wright It's OK, I live in South Africa, Cape Town. The video's are mostly unavailable on this device. So much of the content is lost to me.
It's ok But I think it's to slow and not enough news from international leagues like Germany, Spain etc...
Does a good enough job I don't know of many other apps that bring all the relevant news of all the major world sports. This one does a fair enough job.
Slow, slow and slow. Last update was very poor. Stories not loading . This app is crap
Poor execution, great content The app quits each time I press the back nav button
New version just as painful Resource greedy battery and data hog. Live commentaries behind other platforms. Poor
Ricky Very disappointed that the BBC has sold adverts in the app.
Pretty good. The coverage of live scores and sportsday are great, although I often find better football-writing and columns elsewhere.
Slow App very slow to load pages.
Great app Easy to find news on sports that interest you
Nice app... Instant update of all the sport news and easy to know the scores of leagues played all around the world ?.
Good Gives me a lot of info can't get anywhere else.news
Very reliable, but could not play some video.....not available in my country... That needs to be corrected
Bruno Kelly Excellent for latest scores and gossip. Plus Robbie Savage's banter and fun.
BBC Sports Best sports report anywhere. Well done! Just what I expect from the Beeb!
It works Gives me info i need when i need it.
Sport First stop for my sports fix.
BBC Sports Love this app use it regular for all my football fixtures and results
