Imbedded videos (usually from Twitter) don't play well. Video freezes and lags behind audio 100 percent of the time. Never used to be an issue but probably after an update, it's a problem and does frustrate me. For a subscription service I do expect more. It's been this way for a few months now. Will I renew next year? Maybe.

Give us the option... I don't want scores texted to me when I'm behind watching a game on DVR. I just started a game tonight and before the first quarter is finished, you send me a text saying the score and who won the game! I had to go in to settings and turn all notifications and emails off! Let's us turn those on, not make them automatic. Or, like MLB. TV does, have a nice big switch to turn on scores or turn off scores out in the main root of the menu of options. Plain and center. Sheesh!

One of the top apps for actual Sports fans that enjoy actual Sports Writing without the "Disneyfication" sabotage of itself. Basically SI and ESPN sports journalism when it is at it's best- combined. The app is an excellent version of the site w its constant feed of quality info and articles on news, scores, standings, opinion, etc of all sports and teams with the ability to easily filter it to your preferred sports and teams. Prime quality all around.
