Super Dope Update

So much better looking this year and super fast- it’s like a whole new app.

Still won’t sync

Trying the beta which won’t let my account join the beta community forum. The tweak feature still won’t sync closer than 3-5 seconds to the audio which makes the turbo useless. Also allowing the ability to choose the opponent’s team is ok if you don’t care about either team but feels off when it makes you root against your preferred team. Don’t make this into a team disloyalty creating game like fantasy


It's aight I get its supposed to be different from regular day fantasy but atleast allow background app use no one want to have there phone on for a whole entire game!


Ever other game it loses connection

Great Concept Needs Work

Fun game, great concept, but has a lot of glitches. Fix this and we're good 👌🏽

Good app but 1 major flaw

It is a great app and the idea of it is genius. Hope they continue to update it and add even more aspects to the app. But my major dig is there is about a 4-8 second delay on the app and the game. I know it isn't exactly easy to get exact up to the moment correlation between the app and the game but the delay really messes up your use of the turbo feature

Make an NFL one

The app is good but can we get one for the NFL

Fun way to watch the nba

Great app, hope the nba continues to support it.

Sync is stupid

Try's to "sync with my tv", says I'm behind but I'm watching what my tv provider is giving me. Can't even play because I'm "behind". Stupid.


App features do not work all the time. I've had the most issue with turbo mode. I lost interest after using this app for a game and a half.

Sync to tv?

This app is stupid you have to sync it to the sound of your tv

Events Director

It's a great way to compete with friends, even during slower games. Very cool graphics in the turbo mode.


I was like top 10 in this app.... last week but it since hasn't added up any of the points I've earned In the last 5 games and it's making me mad cuz now I'm out of the top 10 and it won't change my points

Too late to the game

App doesn't work with game streaming due to slight delay. Only works live. I understand why... but in a world that's moving to streaming the makers look stupid. Wish it would've worked. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Ok but can be better

The scoring is not accurate, I got my points while in turbo I then got out of the app really quick and when I returned I lost all of my points

Great Concept, Poor functionality

It's a cool app. However it constantly crashes/lags. Def not the experience I'm looking for in its current state .

Doesn't work with Sling Tv

Because Sling usually lags behind as opposed to cable... cord cutter discrimination!


Syncs once. After that it says there are no games playing so I can't participate in the contest.

Turrible app

Waste of time. Wouldn't show any of the games that have played, are playing, or will play. This app is purely for download revenue and not about the app AT all. 0/5 stars.

Just doesn't work

Would be fun if it worked

Good but to many restrictions

So I try to turn my brightness up on iPhone and I swiped up while my player hit a 3 and the points did not count It lags out and you get no points At the end of the game I turned off my phone and my 210 points did not count to my contest or anywhere else


Would like to see how this works but synced with tv 1/5 times. Hope this gets fixed.

Was alright but kept crashing

This app is somewhat addicting, when it actually works. 4/5 times the app will freeze or crash

Great game!

I gave it 4 out of 5 because sometimes it'll freeze or not update the scores correctly while playing it. And it'll crash from time to time. But it's an addicting game! You can win some cool prizes if you play it right. It makes me pay attention to the live games a lot more while I play this. Highly recommended for hardcore NBA fans such as myself.

Very Disappointed

It's not syncing with the tv. I tried it now for 20 minutes..this app has huge potential. But even after multiple Updates, nothing really has changed for me. Please fix it asap.

Does it really work?

This app works surprising walk despite what people might say. It works good except for one thing. It was behind by a few seconds but it doesn't affect your score I'm using this during the MiL and OKC game.

Update bugs.

It seems there's a longer delay with the game clock. Turbo button stopped working at the beginning of the second quarter of a game, then app wouldn't connect to the network all together. It's not my network since all other apps and programs are able to work.

Doesn't work

Every time it says that it needs to listen to the TV through the phones microphone it never hears the TV

Please remove the microphone function

This an amazing original idea with lots of potential but, it has one key flaw. The mic sync to the tv.... why? It have never worked for me once and I try every game, please just make it without the mic, maybe it connects to a play by play thing or something but I can't use it and that's not acceptable from a billion dollar company

SoundCloud search Taylor Bombz

Just wanted to be the first, hopefully it's good. Seems like a cool idea


Won't even let me start a game but pls fix because it's a cool idea


Awesome idea for an app but it's so glitchy and has too many problems. I hope it's gonna get fixed soon because I'm just disappointed, please update asap.


Please fix this app! I "used" to love it when it worked correctly. I was anxious to play each game. Since All-Star game it's been terrible! Get it right, please☹️

Incredibly buggy

I wish I could give this app more than one star. However, ever since I started playing, there's always one issue or another. It had been that the clock in the game was faster than the clock on TV. Now, it keeps saying the clock is stopped, even when it isn't. This is a fun concept, for sure, but it won't reach its potential until these bugs are fixed.

Please fix ASAP

Too many bugs, once game starts on TV and syncs to TV mic nothing works

Too many bugs

There are way too many bugs and these aren't little ones. They ruin the experience and the competition. Sometimes the clock stops and it doesn't come back on. Or it just stops counting points even with the boost. I can't even use this app because the bugs won't let us finish the game.

Fun app... glitches sometimes

This is really fun to play because you pick players and fun way to interact with the game. Glitches a few times.

Not syncing!

There needs to be a more practical way for this to work and not through using your microphone to sync. I have been trying to sync for over 20 minutes, ridiculous!! Very disappointed.

Won't sync

This looked like an awesome app and I still have a lot of hope for it, but it just won't sync. I have been sitting by the tv for 15 minutes and it just won't sync. Pleas fix this:)

not syncing

Stop syncing with mic FIX ASAP

Think about the visually impaired

I'm pretty sure that this is probably a really good game AP but for a person like me who is blind; this AP is of no use to me. The sites like fanduel and dk are much more user friendly because when I touch my screen my voice over tells me everything I touch so that I'm able to pick my players and play anytime I want to without any problems. It's a shame that the NBA and its developers were thoughtful enough to create an AP that a visually impaired person could enjoy. Hopefully this is something that you guys care enough about to fix but until then I will be deleting this AP.


Great app very interactive you can't get any better then this

InPlay makes the Sport more exciting

Love the live interaction that this free game provides. Well worth a download

Former 1995 ESPNET Chat Host

In no lesser words , the NBA InPlay video "play along with your TV" game has changed my life. Being 69 years old now with pernicious health issues, the focus and the concentration to watch a complete basketball game were gone, especially having watched over four or five thousand various sports games. But at the end of each day now, I have something to look forward to because the NBA InPlay has enlivened the NBA TV viewing experience. It's not a passive experience anymore. It's a relatively relaxing active game that sustains the clarity of the mind in the "present moment". It is a joyful experience. The NBA has inadvertently created a digital product for the "NBA Cares" program. I see NBA InPlay I see as a therapeutic game. l certainly don't feel my pains as much because it is not as demanding as multiple finger video games. I even have neuropathy of my fingers and I still can play NBA InPlay. I see this game being used for senior citizens and hospitals and, of course, everyone else. One last thing I can't wait for tonight is to use the new NBA InPlay update that just came out. Thank you NBA!

App Brilliance

I really like this app. One of my pet peeves is how podcast, restaurant, and app reviewers think they write for the New York Times. I'll save you all a useless diatribe and just use some buzzwords: fun, exciting, free, and effortless. Here's what you do: Open the app, turn on a game you probably were going to watch anyway, pick 4 players, press turbo when things are about to get lit, and enjoy the experience. I hope it catches on because it improves the experience of watching the game at home without losing all of your money to maxdalury on DraftKings.


Been playing this a lot and really enjoying what it adds to watching NBA games! Love to see that it's been updated with some welcome fixes and that the NBA is dedicated to keeping InPlay relevant and fun!

Doesn't work with PS Vue...

App won't let me sync because it is saying that my live stream is behind. Concept looks great, and I was super excited to give it a shot, particularly after reading all of the positive reviews. Hopefully this will get fixed soon to accommodate the growing number of us who prefer to get our TV from something other than a cable box. I'll check back in a month or two...


Enjoyed playing with the family for the Christmas Day games. Kept everyone engaged even if they don't care about the NBA. Let the family rivalries begin! Keep your phone charged up and enjoy!

So fun!

I usually don't pay much attention when my boyfriend watches basketball but this game is so fun! It makes basketball fun for girls, I beat him twice!

Really engaging

This concept is genius, really engaging to play this while the game is on. Fantastic first version too :)
