Ten Must-Have Sports Apps For Every Sports Fan

sports apps

Thanks to smartphones, sport enthusiasts are no longer limited to their homes, live venues or bars for their daily dose of information. With hundreds of available apps at our fingertips, it can be hard to find the best one for you: here are ten of the best sports apps on the market right now.

BBC Sport

The BBC Sport app, now available on the Kindle Fire as well as on smartphones, provides on-demand and live video coverage of the biggest sport event in the country as well as news and live scores. While the game is on, you can use your device as a second screen for scores, stats, commentary and analysis, and then later you can view news, gossip and content from your favourite club under the Quick Link section.

Sky Sports

Similarly, the Sky Sports has running match statistics and text commentary during game play. You can remote record from your app, or listen in on the Sky Sports News Radio, and their Ashes Event Centre means you won’t miss a second of cricket triumph no matter where you are.

Fantasy Football Buddy

Fantasy Football Buddy Pro helps you to manage your own fantasy team and has a handy homescreen widget with an overview of your team which is automatically updated during Premier League matches. You can do all the usual substitutions, transfers and keep an eye on your gameweek points.

William Hill

The iPhone betting app for William Hill is free and works seamlessly with the desktop version. Your current balance is in the top right corner of the screen at all times and you can place single or multiple bets on a wide range of sports. If you aren’t sure it’s the right betting app for you, visiting will give you quick access to a comparison of sports gambling apps including Paddy Power and BetFair as well as William Hill.


SportsTap, available on Android and Apple app markets, has virtually every sport you could want. Fully customisable, the app can feature your favourite leagues and bring real-time scores, game information and statistics right to your pocket. An additional LocalTap feature uses your GPS to find scores for teams within a set radius – 50 miles, 100, 200 and so on.

Formula One

The Formula One Timing and Track Positioning app is a must-have for racing fans, showing 3D maps of the track. The screen you see is the one pit crews use, showing lap times, gaps, intervals, speeds and much, much more. At $34 however, it’s one for the die-hard fans.


If MMA is your thing, the UFC app from MobiTV is all you need. Featuring live access to weigh-ins, pay-per-view events and a viewing schedule, you’ll be up to date on the latest rumbles and can view live fights with improved graphics.

Team Stream

Team Stream is a great iPhone app from Bleacher Report which does a simple but important job – bringing sports content from a huge variety of web resources including sport stars Twitter feeds and up-to-date news.


Are you ever away on travels but crave a bit of sports companionship? FanCake, which is like Foursquare for sports fans, allows you to check-in at games (whether at home or out) and predict scores to earn points against your friends.


The application Blue, which will be utilised with Google Glass, provides updates in the corner of your vision while watching live sport from a stadium. It’ll show player stats, play-by-play descriptions and other handy pieces of information – but until you’re prepared to wear those odd-looking glasses in public, you’ll probably have to stick with one of the other suggestions!
