Opinion: Upon firing this app the first thing that I saw was “speed”. The app moves through the menus without any hiccups. Once you hit the menu your options are: scores, news, video, standings, stats, and more (Settings, About, Feedback and Tell a Friend). I then went to the settings and greyed out the sports that I was not interested in but kept basketball (for the playoffs) and baseball. I would have highlighted football but it’s currently not in session so ill add that when preseason arrives. In the news section the articles were easily readable and I like the option to share the articles via email. I also enjoyed the calendar scheduling which I set up for a game that I was looking forward to watch. This app has ads and because the ad bar is nicely integrated, it does not put a damper on the browsing experience. The refresh rate for new data can go as low as 30 seconds. The ticker scroll rate starts at 3 seconds and the refresh rate goes from 2 minutes to one hour. The video section offers the default landscape orientation but viewing the other options in this app does not offer the landscape orientation.
