About this app

The #1 bracket app is back and better than ever for the 2022 NCAA Men’s and Women’s College Basketball Tournaments! Compete against friends, ESPN personalities and celebrities to see who finishes with the best bracket. Did we mention it’s completely free to play, and that you can win $100,000 in each game?

- Create up to 25 brackets and enter each bracket in up to 10 different groups to play against friends, celebrities, ESPN personalities, and fans across the nation.
- Fill out your Women’s Tournament Challenge brackets directly in the app! Create up to 25 different brackets for the women’s tournament, and use Bracket Predictor and Bracket Analyzer to help you make the most informed picks.
- Finish your bracket in seconds by auto-filling with top seeds, a Smart Bracket powered by ESPN’s Basketball Power Index, or completely random selections. You can also import a bracket that you’ve already filled out on the app, make some tweaks, and submit another bracket!
- Only want to pick your champion? No problem. Let ESPN take care of the rest by clicking ‘Finish My Bracket For Me’, either randomly or with our Smart Bracket logic powered by BPI.
- View details on each matchup to make informed picks, including season and historical performance information for each team and video previews for each game of the tournament.

Poor layout, buggy. Picking the entire bracket in the app wasn't user friendly at all. When I move from round to round, the view gets reset to the top of the bracket - very annoying. And half the time, the My Brackets and Bracketcast tabs don't display the proper content, and the app has to be restarted. Bottom line, filling out your bracket is best done on a computer.

I don't know what I would do without this app. It's a great thing to have at tournament time. But it has its issues. First of all, The Second Chance Bracket Challenge appears to be broken. It won't even connect to the server, even after... 1.) Uninstalling and reinstalling the app, 2.) Restarting my phone, and 3.) Clearing the app's cache. And the app seems to trigger a "No Internet Connection" message at the bottom of my phone, even when I have an excellent connection. PLEASE FIX THESE ISSUES.

I've used this app for years for March madness, but for some reason this year the experience has been terrible. I've Uninstalled and re-downloaded this app multiple times. I get a never ending loading screen when I try to sign in to my existing account or even when I try to create a new account. I even tried making a bracket and then signing in later. Nothing seems to be working. I installed the updates that other review responses have referenced, but I'm still seeing the same issue
