Staying up-to-date with what is happening in the sports world is really important for people who live and breathe sports. Alas, we have to work as well, so staying glued to the TV to get our fix of sports is not an option unless you have a job in the said sports network.
Sports news apps are like winning online lotteries with the predicament. No matter where you are – state, country, timezone, you can watch and/or read the news from all over the sporting world.
You don’t even have to let go of date nights and family outings or work your way around office meetings; you can catch up with the happenings in the sports world whenever you find the time.
Even though there are a lot of options available now, there’s nothing that beats the classics for me. Here are two of my personal favorites and classic apps that help you catch up with timely sports news:
Yahoo! Sports app is the one that everyone knows about, and even if they don’t use it anymore, the chances are that they started with it. Many sports fans over the world rely on this app to get timely updates.
With a big network, it is easy to not miss anything as they have the resources to cover everything happening in different parts of the world, so you get everything in one place and don’t have to switch from app to app to find out the updates about different sports or geographical locations. Real-time coverage of international leagues and competitions is right in the palm of your hands.
How Yahoo! Sports makes the experience better:
- They use geolocation to make sure that you get a personalized feed.
- You have the option to control what appears on your feed by choosing favorite players, teams, and leagues.
- You also get text alerts for things you have chosen to help you stay up-to-date with, without having to keep opening the app again and again.
- You can change the UI experience as well with customizable themes and styles, and of course, data.
FOX is sort of turning into a meme online, but that doesn’t mean that their sports app isn’t apt with the news. To begin with, you can just use your social media accounts to sign up with the app.
Like Yahoo! Sports, FOX Sports gets you all the tea about the sports world and has all the things that make the user experience better as well. You get alerts and scores along with the news depending on what you select.
How FOX Sports makes the experience better:
- FOX Sports uses your location to cover regional news for you, if that is what you want.
- You can set reminders and alerts for games that are important to you, and you don’t want to miss.
- You get a 360-degree view of the action.
- The notifications are combined in one so that your phone’s notification bar doesn’t turn into a newspaper itself.
Having the sports world at your fingertips is a dream come true for all the sports fanatics, and finding sources you can rely on is equally important. In my years of trying out apps and sources, these two have remained my favorite and help me stay on top of the current whereabouts of the sports world.
