AH Awards 2014: Best Sports App of the Year

January 1, 2015 - Written By Alexander Maxham

There are a ton of sports apps out there. Some that are just for a specific sport like NFL Mobile, and MLB At Bat, then you have others that cover every sport imaginable like ESPN ScoreCenter and theScore. There haven’t really been a whole lot of new sports apps to come out this year, but just about all of them have gotten a redesign. So we aren’t really looking at “new apps” here but ones that have been redesigned and work a whole lot better. We’ve looked at a ton of these sports apps and have decided on who is getting the 2014 AH Award for the Best Sports App of the year. Let’s take a lookScreenshot 2014-12-03 10.29.25

Winner – theScore

theScore has been featured here on Android Headlines a number of times, and it’s still a great app. It has content for every sport imaginable like the NBA, NFL, MLB, Soccer, Olympics and everything in between. Once more, it’s tablet friendly, so it’ll look and work great on your brand new Nexus 9. Additionally, you can use the “My Score” section of the app to customize scores for your favorite teams to be shown there, which is definitely a nice touch. The interface isn’t material design, but I have a feeling that’s coming soon, it is still holo, and it does look great.

Runner Up – ESPN ScoreCenter

This was actually a tough one, but we chose the ESPN ScoreCenter app as the runner up because while it had a great design and has just about everything you could ever want in an app. It’s not tablet friendly. Which is something more developers need to be working on. ESPN ScoreCenter is still my personal sports app that I use on my phone and tablet, even though it’s not the winner around here.
