As a sports fan, staying up-to-date with the developments of your team is a must, especially when you can’t watch the match or announcement live. Thankfully, when you own a smartphone, getting an update about your favorite sport is only a handful of taps away due to mobile app development.
When it comes to sports mobile app development, there is an excellent collection, available on Google Play Store. Here is a review of the top three sports mobile apps in Singapore:
LiveScore: Live Sport Updates by LiveScore Ltd. takes the number two spot in the sports section of Google Play Store with more than 10 million downloads. If you are the type of person who wants to know about all the match details in different sports, you should check this app out.
As per the latest update, you can take a look at football, hockey, basketball, tennis, and cricket, a handful of the most popular sports around the world. When you open the app for the first time, it directly gives you the scores for all the matches which are taking place at the moment. It categorizes the games as per their dates, and you can add them to your favorites if you want to receive regular updates as they progress.
One thing to note is that the app assumes that you are a football fan, which may not always be the case. However, you can change the default sport, which is a welcome move. It allows you to follow all the leagues around the world. At the same time, you get the latest news in every sport. When you go to settings, you can only make changes to the notifications and memory used by the app. However, it does come with a default dark theme, which won’t strain your eyes, if you choose to use the mobile application before you hit the sack.
With over 50 million downloads, Cricbuzz – Live Cricket Scores & News comes third in Google Play Store’s sports category. As the name suggests, this app allows you to follow the latest developments in Cricket, a popular sport all over the world.
Upon opening the app, you get a notification that you can use the dark theme. Mobile app development of Cricbuzz is excellent, as it gives you an overview of all the important matches and videos in the main screen. You have the option of scrolling down to take a look at all the content the app has to offer. At the same time, you can use the bottom tab bar to navigate through the different categories, such as matches, news, and videos.
One great feature of Cricbuzz is that the settings icon is easily accessible, as it is present on the top right section of the app. It allows you to get live updates of every match taking place, along with the scorecard and highlights. You can share the updates with your friends and family members through various messaging platforms. It gives you the freedom to receive notifications about every game, series, or your favorite team. One of the best features is “Lean Back Mode” which simplifies the updates, making it easy to follow ongoing matches. While you can watch videos on the app, there should have been an option where you can change the quality as per your preference.
One of the most popular football leagues in the world, the Premier League has an official app available on the Google Play Store. Looking at the statistics, Premier League – Official App has over 5 million installs and more than 76,000 reviews.
Before you can start using the features of the app, you need to provide information such as your favorite football club in the league and whether you want to receive emails. You also need to finish the setup where you have to enter your personal information. The app allows you to receive notifications from your favorite club, along with the latest developments in the league.
The user interface looks sleek, and it is responsive, even if you try to scroll all the way to the bottom quickly. The home page shows the latest news, upcoming fixtures, the league table, results, and news of your favorite club. The app gives you in-depth information about every club, along with their players. For example, you can get all the important statistics, purchase player t-shirts, and even follow them on various social media platforms.
It allows you to create your fantasy football team on the app, which is a great mobile app development feature. If you want to change the notifications or account details, you can always do it in the settings.
