Here is a great sports' scores app for the iPhone. It is called Sportacular. It was created by CitizenSports. There are many great features one might be looking for in a sports scores app. This app offers 17 different sports. They include MLB, NFL, NCAA FB, NBA, NCAA Mens BB, NHL, MLS, PGA, LPGA, PGA Champions, PGA Nationwide, PGA European, NCAA Womens BB, English Premier, Spanish La Liga, Italian Serie A, and German Bundesliga.
There are five tabs at the bottom of the app: Scores, Standings, News, My Picks, and More.
A really cool feature on this app is that you can go back in time to the beginning of the season to looks at any score that may have been played. From there you can find out the final score, breakdown of the score, and the stats for the game for each team. You can also go forward in time to see when a specific game will be played and the time and date of the game. This is a great tool if you are trying to plan ahead for those Giants tickets for dad's birthday. Under the standings tab you will find the standings for each league, each divison, and also the wild card races if you are looking at the baseball one, as well as the playoff brackets.
Under the news tab you will find the latest news for the sport you selected. This is a great way to keep up to date on all trades and injury reports for your fantasy leagues.
A really neat feature in Sportacular is that you can have a "profile" where you can make picks for the sports and see how you do against the other iPhone users with this app. You can also link this profile to facebook, which is a great way to spread out the competition to a whole new level.
All in all this is a great app that I downloaded right when I got my iPhone. It is great for checking the scores really quick, talking smack with some friends, or just figuring out how your team ended up winning in the 11th inning. Check out Sportacular in the App Store. Its a FREE app, and totally worth it for any sports fan, casual or dedicated! The only downside that I have noticed is that this app does not support push-notifications. There is a sports app that does though. : D Keep your eye out for it. It will be my next post!
