5 Android Apps for the Sports Fanatic [My Life Scoop]

When I’m not spending my days reviewing the latest in tech gadgetry, you’ll probably find me at a Portland Trail Blazers game, in a sports pub watching college football, or planning a trip to the next big sports event. I’m a sports junky, to say the least. But since I can’t make it to every game, I need to find ways to stay connected from anywhere in the world. Thanks to these wonderful new smartphones that we all own, it has become increasingly easier to do just that.

Featured today over at Intel’s My Life Scoop blog, I toss out the 5 sports apps that I use on a regular basis to keep up to speed on the latest news for my favorite teams, which current games are the closest or most interesting, and how badly I’m crushing my fantasy match-up this week.

To read the post, head over to My Life Scoop.

  • I haven’t been happy with any of the sports apps and I’ve tried a lot. ScoreMobile has been the most consistent with a decent widget.

    Is Sportacular coming around? I haven’t used that in a long time either.

    I’m downloading some of the ones from the comments. I wish ESPN would come up with a ticker widget!

    I’ve always used Yahoo Sportacular, but i might give the other ones a shot..

  • Sam V

    Team Stream is my new favorite. Great for news and scores of your favorite teams/sports.

  • e_droid

    I really wish ESPN would create the Fantasy Basketball app that’s on iOS for us on Android. They have all the other sports, why not basketball?

  • S2556

    just downloaded thuuz and SB nation after reading the article

    • S2556

      all the recent SB nation reviews are terrible. Can anyone confirm that it works?

  • I use SportsLines because it gives me live lines plus the scores. I can also make “virtual” bets which allow me see how my bets would have come out if i had bet real money. It keeps stats too. I love it.

    What about “Are You Watching This?” Great app, sends you notifications when games of your choice are getting good, hot, epic, etc.

  • burntcookie90

    Yahoo sportacular, you can’t beat it.

  • Jason Sousa

    Oh, the irony of a 2-page article for a list of 5 apps so soon after Adblock Plus was released.

  • Tim Swann

    amazing that I suggested featuring Thuuz a LONG time ago and it never made the site..

  • crack

    Remind me again how your crappy UM Griz did against the mighty MSU bobcats again? I love hearing it from UM Grads. 🙂

  • Pedro

    Thuuz is on the screen, but not mentioned in the article.

    • S2556

      it is the last app mentioned. The article is 2 pages long

  • SportsTap has been my only sports app for years now. It’s lightning fast and lightweight.

  • Team Stream is pretty good for news

  • BubbleSort

    Does any app give notifications about 2 hours before a home game is being played in your city? I keep getting stuck in traffic on my commutes.

    Generally, I like ESPN Scorecenter … it covers all my favorite teams and I like the schedule of games all in one list. However, it is horrendously slow. It takes forever to start up and is always laggy when switching windows. I wish they could optimize it whole lot more or maybe even a cheap paid version that gets rid of ads.

    I recently switched to Sportacular and it covers all my teams except the USA soccer national team. It is much much faster than Scorecenter though

    • michael arazan

      My local AM radio station notifies me via text with all the highlights for professional and college games for Missouri, including injuries and trades.

  • zUFC

    Which one is the best on Battery? Can they all be shut off?

  • iamjackspost

    Scorecenter is all I’ve ever needed, but Thuuz looks like it might be worth a try.

    • Disqus Sucks

      I tried Thuuz recently. It’s manages to tell you a whole lot of stuff and yet nothing at all. It looks pretty, but it just doesn’t have much actual game information.

  • Silver Veloz

    I only use ScoreMobile. I like it.

    • Mallahet

      ScoreMobile FC is great for soccer coverage.

  • KleenDroid


    • Mack

      Oh it is, it is.
