Are you a tried-and-true sports fan? Do you live for Saturday night football or Monday night football? Do you wait up for the big baseball game that you’ve been waiting for all year? If you are a mobile sports fan, you already know that your smart phone will probably have several applications, some of them carrier specific, that will bring you your favorite sports teams stats and scores directly to your mobile phone right out of the box. Verizon, of course, has a monopoly on the NFL games and provides an app to their smartphones to allow for streaming of games, and Sprint offers a rather lackluster application for its mobile devices meant to bring sport scores to Sprint users. But in spite of this, you might want to consider another third-party application that will bring you all your sports needs directly to your phone sometimes in real time as the games are being played.
Look no further than Yahoo’s Sportstacular app for Android. There really can’t be enough said about what a wonderful application! This app has an easy interface, and you can set favorite teams for easy access to scores that are important to you. It covers a wide variety of sports, not just football, baseball or basketball. This app allows you to track both professional teams and college teams in football and baseball, as well as PGA golf, NASCAR, tennis, and wide variety of many other types of sports. This application uses play-by-play action stats and standings, news, plus live scores and alerts and widget support for your phone.
Say, for example, you want the stats on a football game. When you open up the screen to bring up the teams being played, what you’ll see on your screen is small football field that will show the position of the ball, the direction it’s going, which team has it, and the current score. It will also give you up to the last play scored by which team and by which player, and will also give you quarter by quarter updates as the game is progressing.
The same goes for baseball, as it will render a small baseball diamond on your screen, show you which bases are loaded and which team is up to bat. If you have enabled push notifications, if you are actively following one of your favorite teams that you designated, the application will give you a push notification when the game is over telling you the final score.
Perhaps the best thing about this application it’s totally free! On the Android version of this application, you can also set widgets on your home screen to give you updates and play by plays as the games are progressing. The interface is sleek and easy to use, and it truly has a sports lover’s application so if you love sports and you want to keep up-to-date with your teams, head on over to the Android Market and download this app for your phone. I promise you won’t regret it.
