ESPN ScoreCenter for Android gets complete UI overhaul
If you're like us, you know that this is one of the app overhauls that has been much needed for a long time now, and it has finally become a reality. ESPN's ScoreCenter app for Android has finally gotten a complete UI overhaul to make the app easier to navigate and a bit faster. Unfortunately, the app is still mostly an HTML wrapper, so it's not as fast as it could be, but it's getting better.

ESPN ScoreCenter for Android gets complete UI overhaul
But, the best thing about the new ScoreCenter app for Android is that it finally feels like it's an Android app rather than a port of the iOS version. The new layout puts "My Teams", "Top Events", "Videos", and "Headlines" tabs front and center, and puts much of the navigation into a slide-out tray on the left side. The graphics have been cleaned up, and overall the app just looks much better. 

No other noted changes to the app, and it still is pretty barebones when it comes to box score information, so you may want to go to other apps if you're looking for more in-depth box scores. 

If you want to try out the new ESPN ScoreCenter app, it's available for free in the Google Play Store.

Hopefully other apps will follow suit.
I personally think that Android's new 4.x UI is much better than Apple's outdated one.

Looks good. It actually meets most of the Android design recommendations, which is always a plus.

It's definitely a huge improvement that was long overdue!

Why on earth would this not be compatible with the droid DNA?

It's gotta be the screen resolution. There are always some apps that are not compatible when a new resolution is introduced.
