Review from Richard Dutton
Still needs work Works absolutely fine and looks the part, a vast improvement over the sports section of the news app, but until we get goal alerts it won't be replacing ESPN's application for me.
Great app almost worth the licence fee on its own Put together very well. Loads quickly and display sports stories clearly. More and more video links appearing over the last couple of years make the experience even better. However I would like to see the app work without an Internet connection. On the BBC news app you can view stories saved by the app when it last had Internet connection. This gives a reduced but good service without a connection. I use this all the time. BBC sport app misses this. Slight niggle on an ace app.
Surprisingly doesn't cover all top sports Ok if you like football and we'll football but motorsport fans get small changed. Formula 1 seems less now since it went to Channel 4 and as for Motorcycling, does the BBC remember there is world class sport in Moto GP, Moto 2 & Moto 3. Come on, get it together.
Great range of sports and easy to navigate I like this but have had problems as 'a google user' below has said of it logging me out recently and a pain to get back in but it did keep my favourites. News alerts are good as are score updates. Would be good if you could rearrange the favourites on 'your page', poss you can I just haven't found how to! Overall this is my go-to sports app, can't see why I would change.
Sign-in The app was working ok. Then it signed me out. It refuses to accept my email address, which I have double & treble-checked...& it is correct. I can Sign-in online & it even sent me an email to say I had changed the password successfully. It will not do anything else though so I can no longer sign-in...it simply will not accept my email as being valid. So after about 4yrs...it looks like I shall simply have to delete the BBC apps & go elsewhere.
Why o why do we now have to register Bad move BBC. App worked so well before the last upgrade and loved the my sport options and used it all the time. I'm not going to create yet another account and password to remember so bye bye BBC Sport
Another update!! Finally got latest update to work by reinstalling the app. Couldn't you just leave it alone! It was working fine. Why change sign in to email? This has the potential to be excellent but is spoiled by constant tinkering. I don't want fancy new features. I want reliability.
