Free Android Sports Apps

The best free Android sports apps cover nearly every sport imaginable- and do it quite well. Most of these free Android sports apps are mainly for scores and news relating to a specific sport. However, some are more broad and cover all the sports- or at least most of them. Even some yet are more interactive than a standard news app.

The amount of variety in both functionality and the sports covered in these sports apps is quite amazing. Many of the most popular free apps are developed by the major sports news outlets in the world. These apps are very well built and the majority of them cover many different sports. For the non-fanatical sports fans, this type of app is likely all they would care to download and use. That’s great. For even the absolute “crazy” fans, one or two of these general sports apps should be part of their app collection.

Sky Sports News Widget Review:

Sometimes it’s a bit of a nightmare loading up a full website. Like when you are on the morning commute and the 3G signal dips in and out faster than Usain Bolt. Great then that this takes all of the information from Sky Sports and stuffs it into an app which isn’t the prettiest thing to look at, it but it is one of the more functional.

The app acts like a ticker-tape of sporting news. There’s no images, just plain headlines and a bit of blurb underneath.

Unfortunately, if you want to dig a little deeper into the stories, you will be transported to a mobile formatted version of the Sky Sports story � courtesy of Google.

Another slightly annoying thing is the constant presence of an ad at the bottom of the screen. It’s not too distracting but when there isn’t much real estate on the page, it does eat into the app.

As this isn’t an official feed we can forgive this app but as there’s hardly any other functionality you will only come to this widget for the main sports headlines and not much else.

Yahoo Fantasy Football 11:

After your fantasy football draft is over, the Yahoo Fantasy Football ’11 app will help you dominate your league this season. You will have instant access to your fantasy football team no matter where you are at. The app allows for you to improve your team by picking up free agents or by letting you adjust your line-up for the week. Real time scoring is also given with this app, so you will always know the exact score of your match-up for the current week.

SportsTapp:

We were more than a little dubious when loading up SportsTapp for the first time. It wasn’t because it has a dodgy user interface (in fact it’s quite clean), or that it was hard to navigate round (there’s 11 buttons to press on the main screen which house pictures of your favourites sport) but it was that football is spelled �futbol’. How can you trust an app that spells football �futbol’? Okay, it’s better than soccer but it still grates.

Nevertheless, this is one of the best apps we have used for sport information, due to the sheer amount of news and stuff inside. Click in �futbol’ and you can get news from all the main leagues from around the world. There’s even stuff on golf, NFL and tennis.

It may take a while to load but once you are in, you’ll be reading it for hours. The app even gives you the times that games are set to start � a real win for any of us who have been stung by the TV stations changing kick-off time to suit their programme needs.
