5 sports apps for Android
If you happen to be a sports fanatic, you surely want to stay informed about your favourite club all the time. And sometimes that's not the easiest of tasks, because all these life necessities like work, girlfriends and so on get on the way on the really important things - like thinking about tactics or daydreaming about a big name signing.

Well, that's no longer true thanks to your beloved Android smartphone. Every time you are on the go, and do the things you do, you can still check the latest stories about your preferred league and team. To make your choice easier, we have collected five quality sports apps for Android, so let's begin with...

SportsTap | Price: Free | Size: 1.24MB

Probably the most popular Android sports app, SportsTap's success is easy to explain - it offers practically all major sports you can think of and plenty of stats, photos, standings and schedules. Furthermore, you can choose a "favourite team", which is available for multiple sports, and it allows you to follow closely your club's fortunes. This is especially true when the notification option for your favourite team is enabled. Another cool feature is that you can put a favourite team widget on your homescreen.

BBC Sport News Center | Price: Free | Size: 197KB

The sports section of BBC is the best place if you want to receive official information about almost any sport, and, furthermore, these guys always seem to be the first to get it. Now that offering is brought to your Android smartphone thanks to the BBC Sport News Center app, which allows you to browse through various leagues, tables, match schedules and so on. The interface is very similar to that of BBC's mobile page, so if you are used to it, you will probably find this app very easy to use.

Soccer Live Scores | Price: Free | Size: 136KB

Soccer Live Scores is very similar to arguably the most popular football livescore - Livescore.com. It should provide everything that you expect from a good livescore, although it lacks some perks like photos and highlights. However, if you are searching for up-to-the-second scores and want to leave the news and rumours to, say, football365.com, chances are this one will fit the bill.

ESPN ScoreCenter
| Price: Free | Size: 686KB

Similar to Soccer Live Scores, ESPN ScoreCenter offers livescores and match schedules, but unlike it, many sports are supported. The interface is really neat and the "Top Events" category is available, which notifies you about important games. ESPN ScoreCenter also has the "myTeam" option through which you can see the upcoming and current matches of your team. The app's popularity is speaking volumes about its quality, and you can download it for free from the Android Market.

Score Mobile | Price: Free | Size: 1.32MB

Like some of the other apps in this list, Score Mobile offers livescore, news, stats and the "favourite team" option. The advantages this sport app holds over its above-mentioned rivals are called fancy UI and lots of details.

I use score mobile and really like it. When an event is posted you can tap the little calendar icon and it will automatically go to your calendar! Don't know if the other ones do that bit that's a nice feature!

Sportstap and BBC sports app are good, I also like using one called 'mofreeze' for watching live sports streams (https://market.android.com/details?id=appinventor.ai_F18nfz.Mofreeze&feature=search_result)
