  • The Athletic App

    By Matty_munch
    This is a good source for your local sports fix. As a cleveland fan, I like the writers they've hired and I like the video highlights.
  • Wrong city

    By Whaaaa????
    I told them I live in Cleveland. They showed me a pic of the Dawg Pound on the login page. Then I get in the app, and everything is set for a Chicago fan. Lol.
  • Great Writers, Clean App

    By Pwhite17
    They've assembled a team of the best writers/ reporters around (local to Cleveland area). Really impressed with the quality and depth of each article. Podcast is a nice touch. App is simple and easy to navigate and clutter free!
  • Great writing, great app!

    Skip coffee one day a month & subscribe to the best sports content in your respective city - great writing, stats, humor to go along with a sleek u/i - cannot recommend enough
  • The best sports news

    By Mizmichelle
    site/app that there is.
  • Five stars

    By RIP Regional ESPN Sites
    Everyone knows how good the content is, but the layout and functionality of the app put The Athletic over the top. Unbelievable work by Greenberg and crew, keep up the good work and thank you ESPN for inadvertently giving us the Athletic, you idiots
  • Excellent

    By Mga all day
    Great app.
  • Great interface. Amazing content.

    By Valley Butcher
    The Athletic writers don't give you a bunch of fluff. The stories go into deep data, yet make that data very accessible. Also, Sahadev Sharma is my sixth step-cousin in-law, twice removed.
  • Athletic app for-the-win!

    By KLA417
    I've been a long-time subscriber to the Athletic and was thrilled when the app platform was created. It couldn't be easier to reach the high-quality sports news I'm looking for.
  • awful app

    By The Actual Rapper Cam'Ron
    I love the Athletic's stable of writers, but this app is awful. I'm a subscriber, yet the app won't let me log-in (it just stalls out when I tap "log-in"), and if you just delete and then reinstall the app, it refreshes your "5 articles per month" limit. I'm happy to be paying for great content, but it seems silly that on my phone it's easier to steal it.
  • Great writing!

    The Athletic (Chicago) is now my go to for all my local sports news! I especially like their prospects coverage!
