The BBC have today launched an app for iOS specifically for their extensive sports coverage.
Unsurprisingly called BBC Sport, the app is curated by the top BBC sport journalists and is “the sports fan’s guide to live sport news, stats, fixtures and results”
The BBC’s Head of Interactive’s blog says:
The main features of the app are:
• Top stories and breaking news from a range of sports, including live text commentaries from all the big events
• In-depth football coverage, including: a new live scores section; a page for every match in England and Scotland; tables, fixtures and results searchable by any day of the season; plus the latest football transfer gossip
• Live audio streams of BBC Sport coverage on our two radio stations: 5 live and 5 live Sports Extra
• Customisable navigation, with the ability to add your favourite sport to the quick-links (soon you’ll be able to do the same for football teams)
• The ability to share pages in the app with your friends, through email, Facebook and Twitter, which we know is increasingly important for people in a connected world
• And, coming soon, live and on-demand video – in time for another busy year of coverage for BBC Sport on TV
Available currently on iOS with an Android version said to be “coming soon”, the BBC Sport app can be downloaded for free from here.
