Score Mobile, Your Sports On the Fly: Android App Review

App Name: Score Mobile by Score Media Ventures Inc.

Description: ScoreMobile for Android provides up-to-the-minute sports scores, boxscores, fantasy stats, standings, news, betting odds, live blogs and video clips. Follow MLB, NBA, NHL, PGA, NASCAR, World Cup soccer, NFL, NCAA & CFL football, F1, and more!

How it works:  Score Mobile is a fast way to access all of your sports needs on the fly. Built with speed and features in mind, Score Mobile offers: a customizable home screen widget, live blogs, original video content, touchscreen, gesture interface, up-to-the-minute box scores, fantasy players stats, game previews, game recaps, breaking news, top stories and betting odds.

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.

Ratings:

  • Speed (4/5) - Very responsive.
  • Features (4/5) - The feature set is great and includes stats, standings and even article emailing
  • Theme (4/5) - The Blue and yellow works well and is simple in its presentation
  • Overall (3/5) - Although lacking the landscape orientation, Score Mobile is feature packed with a great price - Free!


Pros: Calendar scheduling, videos, home screen widget.

Cons: No Landscape orientation.

Conclusion: The integration of the features work quite well and actually better than I anticipated. Score Mobile is a great app to have handy for your game scores and news.
