The much-awaited Rio Olympics is generating tremendous attention across the world and its natural that millions of sports fans will be looking to download great new apps to stay connected with their favorite teams and events, as well as view live scores, news and videos. As such, a number of apps and streaming services have begun updating their offerings to meet rising demand ahead of the mega sporting event. theScore, a popular Canadian Android and iOS app, has similarly updated its tools to include round-the-clock coverage of Rio Olympics, statistics, individual teams and events for fans with specific needs.
The latest update to theScore which is now available to both Android and iOS devices includes medal alerts to let fans know as and when their favorite teams win medals across a range of sporting events. The new Breaking News feature will also offer pre-event news, details of interviews, in-game and post-game news to supporters in real time. At the same time, fans will also be able to get updates on live scores, detailed statistics and notifications for men's and women's basketball and soccer events and will be able to follow Team Pages in the app to check specific team-related news and updates. theScore won the AH Awards for the year 2014 in the best sports app of the year category and continues to bring in new features to offer the best experience to sporting fans from across the world. With Rio Olympics concluding on the 21st of August, it will be interesting to see if theScore will yet again overcome stiff competition to emerge as among the best sports apps in the world.
Early last year, theScore underwent an impressive material design update to improve user experience and bring in a smoother feel than before. Aside from being quite easy to use, it not only includes detailed team news, but also for each player if you're interested to know more about them. Rather than sourcing stories, the app is regularly updated with the latest news by in-house writers and if you're looking to download a great new sports app which will offer detailed information on all the events during the Rio Olympics, theScore is worth a try. Recently, Google updated its apps like Maps, Search and YouTube with Olympics-related features to let users get the most out of them rather than looking elsewhere, so the likes of theScore will face an uphill battle in the coming days if they are looking to grab the attention of millions of sports fans from across the world.
