  • Crappy app

    By Misfit1054
    Never recognizes my subscription. Links don’t take you to the article you were reading, requiring a searc for it.
  • Can’t read stories unless the intrusive ads load

    By EvanGato
    Ads have been on the Athletic for at least a year now but they still don’t load properly every time. If they don’t then the rest of the written article which I pay for won’t load. I find myself unable to read stories way too often because an ad for cologne does not load properly. If I didn’t pay I’d get it but the technical aspects of the app are lacking and it’s painful when it’s because of ads.
  • Text doesn’t fit on iPhone screen.

    By Dralphesq
    We pay truly good money for superior sports sports reporting. Too bad this NYTimes client app is not as readable on my iPhone Pro Max as is the Times itself. Firing up this app only to have every line’s last few characters fall off the edge of the screen is a line by line annoyance. There is no fix in the app. The other option is to try make text in all other apps too small by going to a system wide negative adjustment. Either way, “The Athletic” presents itself as a badly formatted PITA.
  • Too many crashes

    By BrianLBI
    The application crashes too often in normal use. Hardly a day goes by without at least 1 crash, usually when selecting a different sport, league or team.
  • Hockey

    By par4hio
    JR is the best. Look forward to his daily reports. Katie Woo has really improved also. Would like to see more articles from her.
  • Disappointing

    By Golden Eagle 23
    My de facto sports app; however, the experience has been marred recently by click bait headlines, empty reporting, and copious ads. There are still incredible bright spots of excellent reporting and features; however, it’s not the same Athletic I came to know and love.
  • Best Writers in the Country

    By Bemidji Ben
    Jonny K and Michael Russo are the best bar none!
  • Why pay for info that gets re-printed the next day by other publications for free

    By Sneaks2cold
    SCAM SCAM SCAM SCAM SCAM who would pay for talking heads ?
  • Clickbait reporting since NYT - Avoid

    By PizeKP
    Reporting gone downhill. Nothing unique.
  • Read story issue

    By stratlane
    I get the email click on Read Story. Where is the story. It should be the first thing I see. I have to search for it sometimes I give up. I can’t stand this website
