I’ve had an Android phone for about 9 months now and I’ve found all kinds of great apps, but the one thing I’ve been missing is a decent football score app. Well now that I’ve got Android 2.1 on my HTC Hero I’ve finally got one:
ESPN Score Center
This really is a great app. I’ve got the Premier League selected under “My Sports” and when I opened it up this morning, it had all today’s games lined up. As the games were played, the scores were very close to real time – especially great when you’re out and about.
It goes beyond that though. It gives goal scorers and yellow/red cards, as well as a blow by blow account of all the main events in the game (like the BBC sport site); once the game is over, you get a great in-depth review of the game. You also get a visual representation of all the shots in the match and where they were from etc.
You can add a number of sports/events to the app such as Champions League, Serie A, La Liga plus sports like Cricket, Baseball, NFL and more.
It’s been really useful today and I’m sure it will continue to be so. If you’re a sports fan Android user…go get it!
