Admittedly I’m not a huge sports fan; never have been. I’ve always rooted for the local teams, which here in Cincinnati where I live is the Cincinnati Reds and the Cincinnati Bungles… I mean Bengals. But over the past few years I have began to watch a few more teams which probably has something to do with my brother who is in sports broadcasting. Like everything else in my life, I tend to try to simplify or manage most things with my iOS devices. This is no exception. I went looking for an App that I could follow my favorite teams easily and in one place. What I found was ESPN Score Center. It fits my requirements perfectly.
What I wanted
What I wanted was an App that allowed me to group all of my favorite teams from all sports on one page. I wanted to see the scores of their last contest, and when their next contest was to be played. Score Center delivered. Upon initial setup you decide which teams are your favorites in every major sport played in the US. These teams can be a mix of NFL, MLB, NBA, NCAA(Basketball/Football etc.), Cricket, Ice Hockey, Rugby, Soccer, etc. These are going to be YOUR teams that show up on the first page of the App when you fire it up.
The interface is simple, easy to use, and intuitive. The first page shows your teams, their last contest, and the score. Simple. If you want to drill down further and see more in depth stats that is simple too; just tap your team’s latest contest. If you want more information, at the bottom of the drilled down screen there is an option for a recap of the game. The recap gives you more in depth coverage of the game.
Besides the “your teams” page, there are also several other customizable pages. These can be set as whatever sport you would like. There is also “The Lead” page. The Lead shows the current sports that are being played across all of the sports.
Best Sports App
This App is awesome. It gives me everything that I want in a sports App. I can track my favorite team, or check out what’s happening with all of the teams across the whole league. Before I meet my brother for any event I check Score Center just so I have something to talk to him about.
