App Reviews

  • Love these Rundowns

    By Sonny Cheba
    Keep them coming please! The More PAC-12 hoops the better!
  • Great value - worth the monthly fee.

    By RollTide Alabama FB
    Great sports writing from top writers around the Nation, many new articles - in variety - pop up to read throughout the day. No adds to endlessly click through- just pure sports writing at its best. Did I say no pop up adds? It’s great.
  • Quality sports writing

    By ladariomo
    In the social media/hot take/clickbait era, the Athletic is a breath of fresh air. Enjoy reading quality sports writing on this app.
  • Just what you need

    By Missing Survival Level
    Great source of quality coverage from top notch writers and reporters. Fantastic.
  • Great app, well worth the cost

    By ballistim
    I’ve been very impressed with The Athletic so far, and if it’s available with coverage of the area that you live or it covers your favorite teams and sports, it’s a slam dunk. Understandably it’s difficult to decide to pay for information that would seem to be available elsewhere for free, but you won’t know until you try it that the articles are solid information with no fluff, and you can set your preferences to fit your interests. Trust me, you can’t go wrong. 5 stars.
  • NFL

    By jpk22648
    Sundays NFL playoff games covered by local papers and bleacher report. Nothing on athletic.
  • What sports writing should be like

    By BK
    Great content along with excellent long form stories. I am glad I purchased a subscription
  • Pay to read?

    By bullox
    Great content and writers, but I have an issue paying for sports content.
  • Dana at her best

    By DC_VU
    Great recap of last nights game and how Villanova has developed so far this season.
  • Better than anything you can get for free

    By JJmiv1
    Look, this app and this publication aren’t for someone who wants to get basic stats, game recaps, or hot takes, all of which are abundantly available from free, ad-laden sites. But if you want the nuts and bolts, x’s and o’s of plays and team construction, in-depth articles that dig far beneath the surface, and some of the best writing out there, a subscription to the Athletic and an app download are well worth the (small) monthly fee and the storage space on your device. What a refreshing change to see a publication accumulating talent and building their journalistic capacity as other companies fire quality, talented writers and move away from robust content in favor of clickbait and shallow, video-based fluff. Shout out to Bodner, Kapadia, and company for keeping quality Philly sports journalism alive for the city of brotherly love, and to national guys like Rosenthal for bringing their talents to a publication that values quality over clicks. Trust the Process, Go Phillies, Go Flyers, Go Eagles, and Go the Athletic.
