App Reviews

  • Big Teases

    By whensly
    Tease headline on Twitter made me sign up , download the app etc. Article did not live up to its claim, everything we already knew. Deleting app , now I’ll get spam from them forever. Don’t be tempted
  • Worth every penny

    By Monticello red men
    Great content and very clean site with no adds.
  • Sack Analysis

    By OlyHawk
    I really appreciate this type of in-depth, informative analysis. It adds to my understanding of the intricacies of the game. Well done!
  • Friend of family

    By Teeny house project
    What a personable, captivating and genuine article about Sam. It’s by far one of the best I’ve read. It touches on the entire story so delicately, yet appropriately. Thanks to the writer for letting the reader in, but for also keeping the family’s privacy intact.
  • Nearly perfect

    By @awolmarshall
    The only things missing are a dedicated Wisconsin page and a section for player and team stats
  • Awesome app

    By hairdofux
    Really enjoy this app. Awesome writers with no ads. One knock is that the "speak to read” functionality does not follow along with articles — it just locks in place.
  • A must for sports junkies

    If you love sports and good sports writing, you need to get The Athletic. It really is that simple.
  • Finally sports journalism returns. Written narratives!

    By Keithlb
    This is great. I don’t have to got to different websites, search twitter, to find relevant sports journalism. Combine that with the technology and radical power other World Wide Web and I can honestly say print Media lives on! For that it’s worth it. Not to mention the ability to make it fit your needs “like a glove” -Pet Detective.
  • The Athletic puts out superior sports content period.

    By MK 07
    Why are you still taking your sports content with a healthy dose of politics crammed down your throat? The Athletic offers superior Sport reporting including a beat on your favorite teams. Insights that require actual research and you know hard work. It stands as a beacon in the wasteland serving as a foil to the CNN model of “journalism”, practiced at the 4 letter network and others, which has become vogue in the sports landscape with hot takes, politically charged commentary dominating content. Thank you Athletic, keep up the excellent work.
  • Unorganized

    By Neato? Try Neat-NO!
    App needs to allow sorting topics most relevant to you. Stories are mixed up all over and I usually don’t even see the authors or my team stories unless I scroll far down because there dozens of National articles mixed throughout.
