ZigzagCatcher - Thank you
For years, I dreaded the filling out of paper brackets...not quite understanding the scoring involved as I picked teams based on favorite colors and underdogs (whether I’d heard of them or not). No judging...I’ve come a far way from there although I think I was somehow more successful back then in my clueless years. Anyways, thanks for creating an app that makes it easy to fill out and calculates my points so I can easily rub my predictions (that are still horridly off) in my friends faces. It has made March Madness fun instead of a yearly dread of watching friends lose their minds...now I can join the madness too. :)
Lisa in Dayton - Don’t bury the women’s tournament
The app is a lot of fun. I appreciate the opportunity to fill out lots of brackets (one in which my fave teams win, one in which I predict lots of upsets, etc.). I like the auto fill options as well. But I care as much about the women’s tournament as the men’s, and I’m surprised that the women’s tournament is still an afterthought. It is a hassle to have to dig for it (and dig even deeper to get the game times). What’s worse, after I dig down to game level within my bracket, there is no way to go back one screen to the bracket. The only option is to hit exit, which sends you back to “Play More Games” level, where you have to select “play” the women’s tournament. Come on! Maybe you should just create a separate app for the women’s tournament. But I’ll give you credit for including the women’s tournament in the app; the NCAA’s own March Madness app doesn’t include anything about the women’s tournament! Crazy!
espanfan1753728 - Terrible
Destroying the traditional four quadrant view of the tournament bracket makes it hard to see how the games come together.
There are frequent issues with the real-time coding of winners & losers - the team names are right, but sometimes your eliminated picks show in crossed-out red type and sometimes just in crossed-out grey type. BEWARE: Your “correct” picks are only shown in green in the first round, so just when you get used to reading the bracket layout it changes. Why don’t your advancing teams keep displaying in green? 🤷♀️
Hey Disney - Hire some graphic/UI designers (maybe not just sports enthusiasts) and better coding QA personnel!
I have followed the tournament for 35 years, and have filled out many amateur “just for fun” brackets. This app is not intuitive, and the amount of study you have to undertake to understand what your own bracket is telling you is not worth it. Not to mention how the poor design makes it impossible to include more casual tournament fans… 🤦♀️
Tji77 - A fun APP!
I fill out a bracket every year from the paper & by the time it gets to the Final Four, it looks like a book report graded by a strict teacher with red circles & corrections all over it.
This was easy & I did multiple brackets. I can see my ranking compared to everyone else. I won't win any prizes; but, it is a fun activity.
I enjoy checking out the Celebrity picks as I am hanging in there with them as far as points earned. (In some brackets)
kaykay3303 - Great app if you’re sighted. Extremely inaccessible.
I’m a sighted person and use this app every year for March madness. I didn’t realize how inaccessible the app is until I organized a league for my coworkers this year. We have 4 or 5 blind coworkers participating and all of them needed some level of assistance filling out their brackets, which is a shame because the app should really be compatible with Voice Over. Most of the buttons don’t have labels, and the elements aren’t being selected as a group when picking a team, so you can’t even tell which team you’re selecting. I design our accessible mobile app for our company and baking in accessibility really isn’t that hard. Disappointed in ESPN and hope you make changes for next year, even if it’s using a promotion with Aira to provide on demand assistance for the BLV community.
AK|TwistiTwik - May we please start brackets early?
I was so excited last year when MM was about to happen. Then.... yeah. This year is completely different, and yet we have our brackets. But there is one feature that has to be added, to make a custom bracket with custom teams with custom rankings, etc. And with that, we should be able to control that bracket until the real MM happens. A feature like this would make the app more popular, convenient, and unpredictable. If you devs can take this into view, that would be nice. Stay safe out there, and have a great 2021!
DJ 7578537 - Groups not easy
Adding to a group is not easy. Several of us created our profiles and then the brackets became available a couple days later we attempted to build our brackets and they kept creating a new profile and then you couldn’t attach them easily into the gam adding to a group is not easy. Several of us created our profiles and then the brackets became available a couple days later we attempted to build our brackets and they kept creating a new profile and then you couldn’t attach them easily into the group. My bracket didn’t make it into the group when I thought it did.
ClaireandTom - Busted
I want to preface this review with a statement about gambling. Don’t do it!
I wasn’t 45 minutes into the madness when my bracket busted. And then I realized that gambling my life savings on winning a college tournament challenge might not have been the smartest move this weekend.
After the men who collect debts for the gamblers association stopped by and picked up my furniture and a couple of pints of blood, I visited St. Mary’s. Not the college i bet it all on, but the hospital. They stitched me up and I was able to see out of my one remaining good eye - thank goodness.
It took another 45 minutes to remove the remnants of my phone from my neighbors dog. Who knew that dog would actually try and protect those debt collectors from my flailing and drunken “air punches”.
Word to the wise, people... when they say you have to settle debts immediately, they are serious. My app is busted. My brackets busted. My uncle is busted and headed to jail now... who knew it was a crime to try and protect your sole nephew with that rocket
launcher you brought back from the Iraq war...
Busted. This app is busted!
Jthoms1149 - Unable to sort by possible points left
This app is far inferior in comparison to the CBS Sports app. The reason is you can't look at the bracket as a whole you can only look at it on the left-hand side which makes it difficult to oversee the whole bracket. Also it is hard to really determine who is going to win a private pool because there's no ability to sort by the available points that you can still get which is very very frustrating. I wish this app and ESPN would really get it together because they are clearly the leaders and sports yet they don't put any effort toward something like this which is one of the most popular things in the nation
Dole B - Not so easy
I was excited for the tournament looking forward to filling out my bracket, but as I got going it became quite obvious that it will require more work and maneuvering around the app than it really should. Inviting friends and family to play along and join our private group was painful and way more complicated than expected. My hope that next year ESPN puts in a little bit more work on developing more user friendly features within the signing up process...go Zags!
shaehawn - I love the bracketcast feature
in bracket cast u can see what other people in your groups picked and see whose in the lead and see who has the best potential. u can even click on a certain game and see what everyone picked to win that and how far they have that team going. its the best place to make a bracket and i hav experience so i highly recommended. also u can read abt tournament news in the app! GREAT tournament app.
Susiebrph - Improvements
On a scale of 1-10, this would get a 5 at best. Very easy to fill out brackets but I lost mine twice before I was done- UGH! My women's bracket completely disappeared and I didn't know until it was too late. As everyone has said- SAVE button please! I find it very hard to see who I picked relative to who is playing. Hard to move bracket forward and backward to see who might match in the future and who won or loss if I miss a game. I have no idea how many I have right/wrong and I don't understand how percents are calculated or what the prp means. Overall, it works but could be better.
Bobbbbbbbygjldyuo - Love this app
I find this app easy to use, easy to navigate. Brackets were easy to complete. Now I'm wondering if I'm using it right. Save button would be helpful. If I could rename the bracket before I filled it out, I didn't figure it out. We used this app to track different groups, plus we put the entire family on one account for easy tracking and trash talking.
$ilky$lim - What to add to the app
We love the app and me and my family do a bracket tournament against each other, but we wish there was a way to send a text or a message some how, maybe have a point system that each round it goes up, so it gives the guy at the bottom a chance to come back, thanks
arthurlafrance - Unusably slow and laggy
The amount of lag in the app is unreal. I tried to log in and when I typed my email, the characters didn’t show up on screen until several seconds after I hit the buttons on the keyboard. Given that the login screen was already so bad, I gave up trying to use the app because I can’t imagine the rest of it is much better, and frankly I didn’t have the patience to try and find out.
It’s unfortunate because I was pretty excited to fill out a bracket this year, but trying to use the app just destroyed that excitement
singerjan - good but could be better
i agree with Lisa from Dayton regarding the app and the women's brackets - while the mens regular and second chance brackets were easy to maneuver to and manage it was difficult to get to to the women's bracket and never found the second chance bracket.
if you make it as easy as the mens bracket to use, more players would take the time to play, as there are a lot of fantasy sports players around the world
fly6387 - Always a great experience
I like the app but agree with a previous poster. I like women’s college basketball as much as the men’s. Women’s basketball is to far down the menu and when you do get to it, it looks like building the interface was an afterthought. NCAA women’s basketball should be right under (or above) men’s basketball in the menu and should be formatted exactly like the men’s. Women’s basketball is equally as important as men’s and should be reflected in this fun app. Looking forward to an updated, five-star app next year!
bfidgekcisb - messaging so we can talk smack ☺️
For real! Need to open chats up on here! What’s the point of making a group if we can’t talk smack or arrange a place to meet.
The whole not being able to view a whole bracket thing stinks too, would like to toggle between people to see theirs as well. Viewing in vertical columns isn’t ideal.
Other than that, love it! Oh would be neat if you could see which of your contacts also have the app then you could join more groups or make yours larger!
Mattg519 - Can we pick for the First Four in future?
I have loved this app for the past few years. The brackets are simple, easy to fill out, and fun (especially in groups/with friends). I have noticed one thing this year and that is that we can’t pick for the first four. I know the official March Madness app has that feature and I wish that could be carried over here.
NBA live baller - Great app, But...
I have had a good experience with this app but some of my friends that are in the same pool as me have had trouble, some of them had a bracket filled out and when the tourney started theirs didn't show up and they didn't have a bracket in the pool, and their should be a "save and finish later" button so If I have some thing else to do on my phone or I'm not ready to pick some I can look at some things and come back and finish it
MORE BRACKETS - Almost Perfect
I would say the app is perfect but…I was planning on doing a lot of brackets this year. But once I reached 25 brackets it wouldn’t let me do anymore. We should be allowed to have more then 25 brackets! Due to the fact that it’s pretty much impossible to get a prefect bracket there seems to be no reason for us to have a limit. Other then that the app is great.
Welcome4awhile - Incomplete
The app is excellent for creating brackets. No doubt. EYE had no problem with that. It was difficult to figure out how to see channel listings for games. But they are listed. one can not really see the next round of the tournament. It’s all subdued text. Very hard to see for seeing impaire. Please consider addressing these issues next time around.
Rug dry - NCAA tournament bracket on ESPN
Was a lot of fun , it should have a award for players that fill out only one bracket. Picking 25 brackets takes the skill and some fun out of it. I'm sure others would agree. Thanks for the chance and I'll only be doing one pick again next year. Anyone can get lucky with 25 picks it takes skill to make a good run with one bracket.
play ball!!!! - Awesome App!
This app is great! I enjoy working on the bracket. It’s a lot of fun. I enjoy talking to my friends and comparing perspectives of each game and watching our points go up and down depending on who wins or loses. I also like that I see when each game is and what channel the games are on. This season’s March Madness has been a crazy mad house. Love it!
Ffplayer99 - Not a very good app
Navigation is awkward. Doesn't give very basic info about your pools like what your rank is (i.e. 4/55). Doesn't show you how many picks you gotten correct/incorrect (just points). I haven't found a way to view the full bracket of the other people in my group. When looking at upcoming rounds in your bracket it's not very obvious which picks have already been eliminated. If I were developing this app I would just go look at the design of almost and every other bracket site or app and do what they did because this is the worst I've seen.
Aseef111111 - Come during March, stay for the madness
Very stiff bracket movement. I want to view my bracket and other brackets easily, swiping and scrolling and sliding seamlessly. Yet we are stuck choosing between rounds. And when you do skip between rounds, you vertically lose your position. Obviously hasn’t been tested thoroughly and they needed to push this out sooner than they wanted to make the March deadline. Also, wish it was more visible what I, and others, chose for later rounds. Very subdued grey text, and strike-out if they were knocked out. Visually and functionally, very frustrating app.
Gleesmith7 - Love it!
Fantastic app! So easy to choose your picks & so fun to be part of a team challenge bracket! I check it constantly and it's always right up to date! So easy I was able to talk on the phone & walk my 87 year old mother into creating an account & making a bracket so she could be part of the fun!
try something diffrent - One thing
I’d like to see more stats when viewing round matchups. I don’t follow every conference and feel like that would help.
I really like being able to set up private groups but don’t like not winning them.
Thanks for the great IT work. Well done!!
barroomxhero - Meh
I only have this app since my brackets are through ESPN. The design however is terrible...not good for looking at the overall "big picture"...instead of having to swipe your way through the rounds, the layout should at least let you look through regions, similar to how you set up your bracket. Not a big fan. It is easy to switch between brackets and groups, so there is that.
ya'Ll are jokes - Always an issue
Created a private group and we can’t see each other at all in the group. Thought it was because the APP went down like it always does before the first game but we are not hours later and it still is not working. When you guys fix the issues.... or will it be never? Only one person in our group can see everyone. Super annoying
Dom23redbird23 - Wonderful
This app is my favorite to use for March madness it is so easy to use and you can make so many brackets. The only thing that is bad you can on ho in the app when it’s in season. Overall it’s is very good easy and fun to compete with family and friends.
ASDhumboldtG - 20 years strong!!!
We’ve been doing the tourney challenge for 20 years now!!! WOW!! Just a group of collegiate best friends that still finds time for each other every SPRING..We set up a thread and the S@$) talking begins!! Thank you for a always improving, free platform that helps this group of Humboldt STate alumni stay in touch !! GoBLUE!!
star11365 - Good, could be improved
Good overall, like the general format/user interface. But main complaint is a common one that I've seen (that is pretty important): instead of having to scroll through each round, we should be able to see larger format of the bracket (similar to the online web version).
Guzzyflux - Not the best
This app could be better. It's probably too late now.
I was in the middle of making a bracket when I received a text. So like a normal person, I checked it. Upon returning to the app, my entire bracket, the one I was almost 100% finished, was gone. I had to start over from scratch.
Another issue... I've turned notifications off several times but for some reason they keep getting turned back on. That's annoying.
Ryan.lippy - Almost perfect
The app is amazing and works pretty smoothly. However, the thing that it needs desperately is for the owner of the bracket-pool to have the option to accept or decline other brackets from joining the pool. The password option is outdated and an accept or decline option would work tremendously better and would make my rating 5-stars!
Jw8105 - Matchup preview stats are a hot mess
Missing info, wrong game locations in places... I even saw one team showing a 12-20 record. Almost every single vs top 25 record is showing 0-0, and there are no RPI scores.
Plus the last 12 games records are completely off. For ex, FSU is 10-2, not 6-6.
What a mess - clean it up!!!
se_ga_boy10 - Fun
I've thoroughly enjoyed doing an electronic bracket. I've always filled out a paper one. I had others who participated with me which made it one of the most fun brackets I've done up to this point. The app has been great too because it keeps your score and everything.
VABCHDAD - Stop Complaining
This app is a extremely easy to use and hold up its FREE!!!! Lol people want the world for nothing and complain if you give it to them by chance. I read the family comments and couldn’t agree more its casual good fun. If you’re a pro your not using this one anyway. Thanks guys!!!!!
Smushep Jr. 1417 - Great App... very entertaining and organized 😃
This app really got me into the game of brackets and March madness. This is a great app that makes it easy to make a bracket and have fun in watching march madness. The unpredictable games make it very fun, and ESPN TC makes it easy to do that. I have really enjoyed this app and would recommend it to anyone that I know. FIVE STARS ✨
Show Pony - Great App!
This is a great app to use for March Madness! The adults in our family have a challenge bracket that we can fill-in and have so much fun with it. We each do a real bracket and then a funny one. At the end whoever is the winner gets to have everyone send $25 and it goes to a charity of the winners choice.
"Bigun"44 - You’re guess is as good as any
All ways fun and entertaining as well as very addictive. I tend to get tied up in it and loose track of other things. Excellent way to enter act with friends who live in other cities. It is one of the most enjoyable times of the year.
rockin Baba - Old but not forgotten.
What fun to be able to fill out the brackets and actually compete with my grandchildren. Even though I bombed out after the Sweet Sixteen, we had fun cheering for our teams (GEAUX TIGERS). Can’t wait till next year when I hope to study the teams more and win it all.
mar ranger - Better than mine
It’s a little hard to navigate and sign on if you have two brackets. Need some way of confirming if you did it correctly a lot better than it is now. Once you get that all figured out it is the greatest tournament app there is.
tony10xs - March madness 2019.
With all the crap happening in the world it’s great to be able to be a part of something so much fun and celebrated like march madness. This is the only app I use for the tournament, because I know that the information is updated quickly and very accurately ❤️ it 🏆🏀💰. Tony10xs
scheaffers - Best of four bracket apps I have tried...
Far from perfect, I do like comparing my best with the "Celebrity" best bc it's good for my ego. Suggestion: not everybody can keep up with MLB, NBA, NHL, and NCAAF Signing at the same time. Is there a way to "force" a reminder to get on my brackets? I started them this year with 15 minutes left b4 they closed.
duck manson - Best Bracket
The application has updates after your picks and the software populates each round automatically and shows a players pick/ win and loss. You can fill out a tremendous number of brackets.
Blake daddy 124424 - Add more group features
For bracket groups please allow features where the leader of a bracket group can have the option to accept or deny brackets into the group, and the feature that doesn’t show the password to anyone. Thank you! Great app otherwise
Jamming Jerry - Awesome!
My family & I really enjoyed it. Easy to fill out and keep up with. One improvement would be to make the next round picks a different color. The grey was hard to see when trying to look ahead to the next round before the current round was over.
Uyjuyfyuf - It fine but picks keep getting wiped
It's a great bracket app that many of my friends use. It is really irritating though when I'm making my picks and they all get wiped because I put it down and my phone goes to sleep. Even when clicking on certain matchups and watching the videos all my picks get wiped when I go back to the bracket. Extremely frustrating
CJhooper - APP GLITCHES CONSTANTLY
I think it is just for some users, not all, but the app glitches out constantly. Everything on the screen is flashing, all the teams in my bracket are flashing in and out of sight. The different regions flash between saying “West” and “Quad 1” and “East” and Quad 2. I’m hoping the developers see this and fix these bugs. I had the same issue last year, and I have a new phone this year but I still encounter the same problem.

Easy to set up and follow from multiple devices. It doesn’t hurt that I have two picks in the Final Four and won our office pool!

I love this challenge. Excitement everyday. Easy to follow your personal result with millions of participants.

Like to understand the rank rating and score
Rott3n_egg5 - Yeah!
Love the access to my brackets!
Watmurda - A++++ Easy to use
Awesome app easy to use and great for making pools. Scores play by play and more.... point system is decent
CardioChef - No view
I was hopeful to watch March Madness as per Apple TV and ESPN’s hype but ended up being all hype. There’s no apparent option for Canadians to stream NCAA’s major event of the year that unless you have a cable subscription in the US. Or can someone a challenge that “accurate” info?
Prince Dane - GREAT!
Great way to keep updated on your bracket!
•Flow3rs• - No bracketcast
Bracketcast is a great feature that's oddly absent. Also, no what if scenarios
flynner333 - Great app
Can make multiple brackets and create your own groups
teeurup - teeurup
The Bracket makes following that much more interesting. My team is out but the bracket keeps my interest up.
ThisJayGuy - Wish it had it's own 'score' component...
After using a few other tournament apps, this one is probably the easiest to use and the most user-friendly. I only wish ESPN didn't make you install it's own 'scores' app if you want to use the navigational tab at the bottom of this app.
Riley44144144 - You had one job
Downloaded this app to fill out my bracket easier. Halfway through filling it out, it crashes and doesn't save any of my picks.
Anonymous Giants Fan - Great app
Great quality, lots of detail and offers you help from experts on ESPN on who they think you should choose
Pitch97 - Great
Perfect way to fill out brackets, makes it so easy to make a pool for people.
bulldog 57 - Bracketcast
Does anybody know how to access Bracketcast on the IPad? I can easily access it on my IPhone and it is the best feature but I can not find it anywhere on my iPad. I love this app
This is amazing!!!!!!! - Great
Fun, simple way to fill out brackets.
Zachlion - Great App!
Really helps with picking teams, makes enjoying March Madness very easy
Waldaroo - GodBless
Does not get more convenient than this, awesome job

Sytyct - Espn
Awesome,a great way to participate in the bracket.
Turbopan - Change it back to last years version
It's impossible to tell which teams you got right or wrong. This grey of faded thing is awful.
Platypus1222 - Scores at your finger tips
Scores update quickly and keep u up to date on who is in and who is out
Ennski - Crap
Did my bracket a few days prior. But because there are so many sign in screens, it didn't save. Sweet. No madness this year
Drdtroit - Okay
Why do i need a different app for scores?
Applegeorge0 - Good app
Keeps scores up to date quickly
tbc2901 - great app
Ray Gulliver - Always up to date
Great app. Scores are very quickly updated!
Phenobe - Pretty good
Only if i could watch highlights on it though
Asuako18 - Great!
Good app and easy to use.
tylersan - Simply to use; easy to follow results
I don't have much to compare it to, but it was easy to enter my bracket picks and the reporting as the tournaments progress is easy to follow.
Blox3478 - It's Great And Very Easy To Use
I like the in bracket scores, the featured section with celebrities and VIP like Obama. Can't think of any bad things to say. Would be nice to get instant updates, but so would dating Kate Upton. Maybe don't cut off the ranking numbers and list total users like 103,453rd out of 1,446,782.
Smknhrb - Love this app
I look forward to the Tourney, just so I can start using this app. Has everything you need. This new version seems to update the scores of other participants in your pool a little slower than the old version, but the app is still the best out there.
Euthimious - Exceeds Expectation ⚡️💡💣
Outstanding! Really enjoy the stats!
Chris2206 - Boom
Awesome app. Keeps the tournament at my fingertips 24-7.
Me12321rete - Doesn't update
It's a POS
Antone Darakjian - Not bad
They update it really fast and easy interface.
Titofuentez85 - EZ activation
Easy to set up, that's what counts. The scores weren't up to date until day 2 but otherwise so far so good.

Work on it 1 - App
Very simple to use and easy to read excellent app for the tourney
Laidlawr - Needs improvement
App is great for making and reviewing your own brackets but when looking at your league none of your fellow competitors scores are updated. Once an update for this is released, the app will be better.
Also, it is connected to the Sports Centre app in a confusing way that requires you to download the second app instead of having scores for individual games available for viewing in the app. Seems like the app would be a smoother experience if it didn't transfer you to another app. Either embed the other app with this or remove that option altogether. I an completely capable of switching apps on my own.
Chuckia - What more to like?
This is a great app to keep you in touch with your bracket.
Vinny 54 - What's up with this
Not sure why but the app will not work for me on my IPhone 😣
Dooling88 - Perfect
Easy and quick
Simonl6 - Good app
I like to compare with others my knowledge in ncaa basketball and this bracket app is the ultimate way. I like it ;).
bsnow07 - Very easy and organized
Great app :)
