Windows Phone App Roundup: Sports Apps

Windows Phone Central's Roundup of Sports Apps for your Windows Phone

In this week's Windows Phone App Roundup, we're focusing in on sports apps. Apps (not games) that will keep you up to date on all the scores and news from the sports world. We have a few all encompassing apps and then a few that are sports specific.

And now for the customary disclaimer. If an app doesn't make the roundup it should not reflect poorly on things. These are just a collection of apps or games that have stood out to us. If we've missed an app that you think should have been included, sound off in the comments.

ScoreMobile is a popular sports app for your Windows Phone that pulls in scores, stats, standings and videos from the entire sports world. ScoreMobile FC is another sports app from Score Media that focuses on the various international football (soccer to our U.S. readers) leagues.

Key features of ScoreMobile FC include:

  • Free customizable push alerts (including goals and key incidents)
  • Daily video “vodcasts” featuring special guests
  • Sync tournament fixtures to your calendar
  • Up-to-the-second live scores
  • Live blogs or text commentary for EVERY game
  • Comprehensive list of match times, tables and statistics
  • The latest Euro 2012 news, previews and post-match analysis in video format
  • “Bet Now” feature, allowing UK-based users to place real-time bets via licensed betting and gaming provider William Hill

The football leagues covered includes UEFA Champions League, English Premier League, Spanish La Liga, Italian Serie A, Argentine Primera Division, French Ligue 1 and many more. You can even get coverage on the 2012 Olympic soccer matches.

ScoreMobile FC is laid out very similar to the original ScoreMobile with pages covering your teams, your comps, access to all leagues, a listing of top matches. With Euro 2012 and the Olympics right around the corner, ScoreMobile FC is a good way to keep up with all your soccer...err... football scores from your Windows Phone.

Update: While the initial release on ScoreMobile FC did not make the distinction, we have since learned that push notifications are not currently supported for the Windows Phone version of this app.

ScoreMobile FC is a free, ad supported app that you can find here at the Windows Phone Marketplace.

Scoremobile has been updated to include additional sports leagues. The Windows Phone 7 application provides updated scores, stats, standings, betting odds, news and videos on your favorite sports leagues.  The original release only covered the NFL, NBA, NCAA Football and Basketball, NHL, and EPL Soccer.

Just in time for Spring Training and the start of race season, the update adds the following leagues/sports into the mix:

  • MLS Soccer, LIGA Soccer, SERI Soccer, Champions Soccer
  • CFL Football
  • MLB Baseball
  • NASCA and Formula One Racing
  • PGA Golf
  • WTA Tennis and ATP Tennis.

While we haven't heard anything official, the update also appears to have included some performance tweaks. Screens seem to load and refresh a little smoother from the original release. 

There is a bug with the update that is easily fixed. If you apply the update through the Marketplace, you won't see the changes. However, if you uninstall the original version and re-install the updated version, you'll then see the new leagues.  The bad thing about this option is that you'll loose all your favorite teams.

If you haven't installed ScoreMobile and need a decent sports app, you can find it here (opens Zune) at the Marketplace. It's a free application.

ScoreMobile - Review

Score Media Ventures has brought ScoreMobile to the Windows Phone 7 Marketplace. The free app brings sports scores, news, stats and videos to your Windows Phone. Fantastic, right?

ScoreMobile also allows you to tag teams as your favorites, making it easier to follow their progress as the season moves along. The app has a minor degree of customization and it ran very stable.

To find out the particulars of ScoreMobile, follow the break.

ScoreMobile Update rumors

ScoreMobile hasn't been a part of the Windows Phone Marketplace for long and we're now hearing rumors of what the first update will entail.

It is our understanding that developers are wanting to add Live Tile functionality to ScoreMobile. Maybe a tile that will display your top three favorite team scores?  Maybe notification when a score for a favorite team changes?

Another addition should be to increase the sports leagues the app will monitor. Other platforms cover a wider range of leagues and one glaring omission with the Windows Phone 7 version is Major League Baseball. ScoreMobile plans to add MLB and a few other sports leagues in their next update. Hopefully, in the nick of time for Spring Training.

So...if you could bend the ear of SportsMobile developers, just in case they're listening, what would you like to see added?

Thanks goes out to Alan for the tip!

While there are over 7,000 apps for Windows Phone 7, the one sorely lacking area in development is a good sport's score app. Hopefully, that's about to change.  Last month, we mentioned that Score Media was working on bringing ScoreMobile to Windows Phone 7 and the app was recently released over at the Marketplace.

The app allows you to follow NFL, NBA, NCAA Basketball and Football, NHL, and EPL Soccer scores and news. ScoreMobile also allows you to tag your favorite teams for easy look-up and includes any T.V. coverage information.

The initial impression is good and we'll take ScoreMobile out this weekend and get a full review up shortly. It's a free application so if you want to check it out, you can find it here (opens your Zune desktop) at the Marketplace.
