Top 8 | Best Sport Apps for iPhone

There are lots of different sport apps out there these days, but most are designed with one thing in mind: getting information to you, the sports fan, and getting it there fast. This is why so many of these sport apps and news apps pride themselves in up to the minute info, not only news stories and breaking info but also things like scores and even statistics. We recently took a bunch of these apps for a spin and found out that they tend to follow the same kind of formula: that being, to engage fans in the best way they knew how, and to ask you to pick your favorite team once downloading the app so as to receive tailored news and scores. If you’re a football fan, you can narrow your updates down to just the football news, or just those that pertain to a specific division or team. Of course, this all changes depending on the app you’re using, so each app is slightly different and it might take some searching to find the one that suits you best.

8. Fancred (Free)

Fancred is a sports news apps that combines the latest sports news with social media. It is by far the most interactive of all the sport apps you will find on the iPhone at present, allowing you to upload photos, write comments and add articles about your favorite teams. You would typically need a laptop or desktop computer to do all this, but here you can do it through the app itself. You can begin by creatig a profile, using your email or Facebook account, then pull those people from your contacts list to see which people are using the app. You will then have a feed that is full of the latest sports news, not so much from biased news sources but from likeminded fans. Players will also get involved in order to bring teams and fans closer together, which is great. – Download from iTunes

7. Thuuz Sports (Free)

Thuuz

Thuuz Sports is another of those sport apps that allows you to focus in on your specific team, ensuring that you won’t ever miss any action. As with many other apps out there, this one also has a specific feature that sets it apart from the rest, and here it is the focus on buzz and fan excitement that make up the week of any sports fan. The system will pull online buzz and integrate it into the app, and the app will also provide an excitement rating from 0 to 100 for upcoming games. This is great for the sports neutral, meaning that you can mark on your calendar the games that are going to be fun. – Download from iTunes

6. Forza Football (Free)

If you are a football, and by that we mean a soccer fan, Forza Football is the way to go. It will provide you with sports news, match schedules and there is a great online community that allows you to really get into the thick of the action and discuss the latest games with people. The app will give you up to the moment updates of your favorite teams, and there are notifications for everything from goals to cards – a great app for soccer fans everywhere!  – Download from iTunes

5. ESPN (Free)

ESPN

The official ESPN app seems to inspire equal amounts of love and hate, but we here are lukewarm on it. If you’re already a fan of ESPN and the way they present the news on their website and social media in particular, then the app will no doubt appeal to you. As it stands, you cant really mention sport apps without at least one passing mention of ESPN: the latest update to the app can be a little clunky at times but is still one of the best direct sources for news. At the time of writing, and we all know how these things can change, ESPN has a series of different apps: one to stream video content, one to monitor your fantasy team and this one, the main source of sports news. And as mentioned above, the app starts with you picking your favorite teams – meaning that you don’t have to go through news that you don’t give a darn about. There is a good social aspect here, too, meaning that you will see not only breaking news but also breaking tweets in the sports world! – Download from iTunes
