NBA: Live Games & Scores Positive Reviews
ConvolutedFirst, get rid of the 3 second animation of the Larry O’Brien trophy every time you open the app. I just want some scores and I have to wait this darn thing out. Second, I like the home page but they only put on a select few games so you have to delve into the scores section to find more. I’d be nice if they were all there. The whole thing feels convoluted. It’s like those web graphs they’d make you do in school. Everything is just sprawling around everywhere and you have to chase it. I still give four stars because the app works and it has a lot of stuff, I just wish that trophy would go and it felt more fluid in ease..Version: 2007.7
Good, but I miss the old layoutHear me out, this new update is mostly good. The Stories feature is really nifty, the videos play without trouble, and it’s easy to access content and interviews from the league. But the thing I used the old app for the most was checking box scores of games the next morning. And that’s my issue.
This is my main complaint: When looking at the box scores, I find it really difficult to digest any of the stats. There is a ton of white space spreading everything apart, making it impossible to get a full box score without scrolling and swiping multiple times. There are also no separation lines drawn between categories or players. The box score viewer is clunky, I’ve accidentally swiped it down and hidden it a dozen times when I meant to swipe right to see stats like BLK and FGA. The old box scores seemed to be sorted by position, but now it’s sorted by minutes played. That tends to confuse my brain while quickly flipping through the games to see how players did. I would like an option to choose how to sort. I’d like to see the box score feature become more streamlined and like the old app in that manner.
Overall, it’s a great app. I hope this feedback can be used..Version: 2007.3
A step in the right direction...I feel like the devs for this app have grand ideas that are either being bottlenecked or overridden by execs. I like the new UI, but it seems like it’s trying to glitz and glamor us when all we really want is access to data and analytics. The single item I used the most, written recaps of each game published by the Associated Press every night a few hours after the games end, seems to be missing in favor of video recaps. Call me a boomer but I don’t want to watch a video to know how a game unfolded. If I want to see a play or an injury or a highlight, I’ll go look for it elsewhere in the app. Overall, the app performs admirably on my iPhone XS, and seems to be less buggy overall, but there are clear issues that need to be addressed (why do I have to scroll through the entire league of players to access Westbrook’s stats?) and a more cohesive index of the plethora of content needs to be readily available on start-up. And PLEASE tell me whoever was responsible for copy-pasting the AP recaps wasn’t fired or deemed unnecessary; I’m not kidding when I say those recaps were 90% of the reason I open the app every morning. :/.Version: 2007.3
Overall ok, but needs a lot of work.Specifically the player profiles. There should be no reason why I click on a player’s name to find out their info and only their picture and one small line of their current stats shows up and the rest is a random ad + huge list of random NBA videos. I liked the old way where it gave you all of their information: height, age, DOB, school, career stats + current stats. etc. I have to click on Advanced Stats, then find their “Profile”. There is nothing “Advanced Stat” about their height and DOB. I should be able to see that information on the first page. I understand putting their advanced stats on a separate page, but there shouldn’t be a 1 inch section dedicated to their whole profile and the rest is an ad and videos . The second biggest thing is searching for a player. Scrolling through an entire list of 400+ NBA players is exhausting..Version: 2007.3
Some improvements, some downgradesThere are some improvements in the new design. There are some big downgrades too. Most of the reviews have covered the same flaws I have noticed. The one thing I wish you guys would bring back is the paid version. You used to be able to pay 10 bucks to remove ads and get audio to the games. Even if it was 10 bucks to remove ads I would do that in a heart beat. Ads makes the user experience pretty poor and pretty much botch the ux designers efforts to make a nice app. Also instead of overhauling the app every couple of years why don’t you just make the improvements everyone is asking for. I wouldn’t be hard to go through and pick out all the features everyone is requesting. Isn’t the app for US anyway? Not everything is negative, so thanks. Please listen..Version: 2007.3
DavidI don’t understand why this app was changed. When you update something it’s usually to add features to make something more user friendly. This update is the opposite. Now the settings icon and exit icon are overlaying the phones header in Portrait mode. Please fix. And I received a response from my first review. Thanks, but my question was never answered. Why are we no longer to see each quarters time in real time? Now it just shows the quarter. Seems to me like someone is focused on visual design more than user-friendly design. Please fix because overall I know people are working hard to design this app, but need to stop fixing something that is not broken.Version: 2007.4
It’s goodI really like the new layout. I think it looks more polished/modern and runs smoother. I haven’t personally had any of the problems/errors so far that others have mentioned. Everything’s working as it should for me and I enjoy it.
The only thing I’m not a big a fan of is the new lead tracker graphic for the games. I like that you can now scroll on it to find the specific plays but I wish that you could also just click on the graphic itself and it show a bigger graphic more similar to the old version.
This version doesn’t have the grid lines with the numbers to really show how much a team is leading by. It also doesn’t say what the biggest lead was or how many lead changes and ties there were.
In my opinion, it just doesn’t convey the match up between the teams as well as the old app’s “match up” tab did which is a bit disappointing since I really enjoyed viewing that tab every game. I would like to see that aspect get some improvements but overall this seems like a good app.Version: 2007.1
I liked the old app more, but it has potential.I’m assuming the app is still be tweaked and updated to work 100% smoothly. Every time I open the app I have to sign in, and I’m not receiving any of the notifications I’ve turned on. I turned on notifications for game starts of my favorite teams, but then I go to the game itself and it shows the notifications are turned off. So now I have to go through every game and turn on which ones I want to be notified about (we’ll see if I get the alerts tomorrow). It also took me a while to figure out why my League Pass subscription wasn’t working, and my NBA TV subscription still isn’t showing up. The previous app seemed more streamlined and easier to use..Version: 2007.3
NBA overlay is so annoyingI love the NBA, and I shell out for LP anyways (even though black out rules keep me from watching my Wizards on LP) because I enjoy watching. But my god, the overlay showing recent plays, substitutions and timeouts on the NBA LP stream takes up a third of my screen on my iPhone. The NBA already streams a great product, why add an unmovable overlay to it. The new app is decent, don’t have a strong opinion yet—
Except the overlay!! Please allow an option to close it, or better yet get rid of it all together.
I feel bad about giving 3 stars, it’s probably closer to 5, but this overlay is driving me insane. Apologies Adam Silver..Version: 2007.7
Non-Live ViewingI got NBA League pass because I wanted to watch more Bulls games. While league pass obviously allows me to do that, unfortunately, it also ruins the games for me. When the Bulls play on the west coast, I generally don’t watch live because I wake up early. And I can’t get to the recording of the game without seeing the score l, which ruins the whole game for me. It’s not the end of the world, but I just wish there was a way for me to get to the recording without being forced to see the score of the game..Version: 2007.8
Much fasterI haven’t used it that much so far but I like this one a lot better than the old one already. With the old one my friends and I would always have a running joke about how it was possibly the worst made app of all time (not because the actual app itself was bad) but just because it had probably the slowest and most aggravating loading screens of all time😂😂. Like if I wasn’t on Wi-Fi and I clicked on the app to open it it would take a good 30 seconds sometimes to just open, this does not happen with the new one which is great..Version: 2007.2
AnnoyedA lot of times, I’m using an app and I get a pop up asking for a review. I typically decline and continue about my business. I didn’t get that prompt from this app but I was so annoyed by it, I went to the App Store and found it to give this review. I’ll try to keep this short; I’d like to search players, not scroll through them. I’d like to see what games are currently on as soon as the app starts up. And when I do tap on “games” I’d like it to show me the current day. Not sure if this is the same developer for Roku but I don’t understand why I’m constantly looking at tomorrow’s date when I’m looking for games. It just doesn’t make sense..Version: 2007.3
Great app with very clean layoutOverall I really like this app because it is very easy to use. And if you have notifications on it will basically tell you everything big that has happened. So if you miss a big game I guarantee it will be in the notifications or coming. My favorite thing about the app is that is so easy to use. From the great layout to the customization options it is a very easy app. All in all this is a great app for catching up on any games that you missed and very easy to use..Version: 2007.4
Could be betterHelps me keep up with the games and it’s pretty easy to navigate, I also like the layout of reading articles, viewing the standings, etc. my main issue is trying to view certain players and their stats & I can’t even find them. Then I’ll try to look up the team roster and it doesn’t even show up at all so it’s flat out whole rosters and players that I can’t look at thru the app. Tried deleting & redownloading it still aint fix the issue . Also wish there was a better layout for looking at the box score.Version: 110513
OMG So goodI really like this app it allows me to watch games and look at stats and people say they have to scroll through hundreds of players to ding there stats all you have to do is select the team there on and it’s 100% easier to find and the grate thing about this app is you can look at almost everything stats games player stats team stats teams wins and loses this app is amazing thanks so much for making this app!!!!!!👍👍👍👍👌👌🏀🏀🏀🏀🏀🏀.Version: 2007.8
NBA LoyalistI have been a fan since the early 80’s. I was born and raised in Fort Greene, Brooklyn. I grew up watching local legends like Bernard King.
I had the pleasure and honor to witness some of the greatest players through television. Be it on CBS, NBC and eventually TNT, ESPN and last but not least ABC.
The ASG and Playoffs are the showcase of the league. The seasons are always exciting and grinding. Lets not forget about technology.
Advances in technology has allowed the casual fan or loyalist (this guy) to follow their favorite teams all season long. The inception of League Pass, the NBA app, NBATV has really put the league in the forefront in the U.S. sports market.
I sound a bit long winded but basketball and baseball are my favorite sports. I turned 50 this year and can say that the NBA has left some memorable moments etched in my brain for life.

It’s great but you have to watch out for spoilers!!!!The app is great to watch the games but they have a lot of spoilers even when you turn off the scores. For example they have headlines of the games when you open it so you may have the scores turned off but they receive you with “Steph hits 62 on Warriors win” 🤦🏻♂️ Also when you access the game highlight they have a line with the score even when you hide the scores also..Version: 2007.4
Video Quality was better in Old AppThe main thing I used this app for was to watch the video recaps and highlights of games. Now I'd rather watch elsewhere cuz the video quality is so bad. Even on good connection the best option is 720p and the sound is like you're in a tin can. I was thinking about getting League Pass again this year, but probably won't be worth it in this app.
Hope you guys work on this..Version: 2007.4
Downgrade from last yearVery disappointing update. Why would you ever think providing less information is better (player profiles, game data, etc)? The usability is very fragmented and not easy to navigate. Does the development team actually use the app? More white space when showing game information makes me scroll more - very obvious if use actually use the app.
I used to use this over ESPN because it was better and more useful. I’m back to using the ESPN app 🤦♂️🤔😱.Version: 2007.4
Looks and feel of app is nice, missing some featuresI really enjoy the new look and feel of the app. Also some cool features that were added on like Player Transactions is really nice to see. But then there are some features like Player Search that’s missing. I don’t like to have to scroll through a list to find the player. And if you could add cool stuff that I see on other sport apps like betting odds that would be cool too
Thank you!!.Version: 2007.4
Great, easy to useLove the nba, this is all things nba, match made in heaven..Version: 1904.1
Great app for out of market gamesGreat subscription service I often enjoy watching games on this more then on the tv with the interactive scoreboard. Only thing missing is being able to download completed games to be able to watch off of a internet connection.Version: 2002.1
App not working in CanadaApp use to work loved it but now it’s saying can’t view because of the location since I’m in Canada ?.Version: 2007.4
MAKE A WIDGET!!!Great app but make a widget.Version: 2007.2
Quite a great app!It’s a bit pricy when it comes to paying to watch the games but once you purchase a subscription it’s great streaming for the whole season!.Version: 110406
Not available in Canada -_-Says I can’t view the game based on my current location which is Canada. I also re downloaded it...Version: 110513
Good app Chromecast feature doesn’t work on iPhone which is very frustratingIt’s a good app and the league pass is worth if you love the nba but it’s frustrating that it seems like the app doesn’t work on my Chromecast.Version: 110513
This APP IS AMAZINGIf you LOVE THE NBA LIKE I DO, THEN YOU WILL LOVE THIS! This everything you need for NBA information and you could look at box scores and player stats and a bunch of other important stuff that you might want to know. Personally I love this app and you will love it to if your a true NBA FAN!!!.Version: 2007.5
Great App for contentLoving the new app, great content and simple UI. Excited to use it when the new season starts..Version: 2007.1
Great, but why?It's a great app as far as content and layout goes. However, why can it only work in a single landscape orientation? I want to use it stood up using a folding cover, but he app won't rotate in that orientation. Portrait mode support would be great, too..Version: 2007.5
Decent.This app is decent for NBA Enthusiasts. I feel as though some parts of the app become cluttered and seem a bit too packed with information rather than nice colours overlooking little texts and lots of highlights. The NFL app is better, learn from them. Decent nevertheless just needs some improvement and less text, more HIGHLIGHTS!!.Version: 2007.4
Love the updateFinally 😍.Version: 2007.1
RileyMaster on YouTube this app is goodJiii.Version: 2006.1
