the podcast part of the app is clunky, and at times the app can be unresponsive but generally it’s good

The quality of the app needs to match the contents

As much as I enjoy the contents and the great roster of writers on The Athletic, it's always puzzling to me that a link to another article on The Athletic comes up as if it's on an external website, asking me to download the app and purchase the subscription.

Love the Athletic but they have big gaps in their coverage

Great articles and solid analysis on the teams that they cover. I’m still bummed they haven’t replaced many of the beat writers they laid off last summer. No coverage on the Suns (2nd best record in the NBA), no coverage on BYU football or basketball.

Love the writing but holy cow why can’t you just show me the scores and box’s for teams I follow? I need to go look at espn? The app had it before…no idea why it’s gone now.
