Britain’s giant broadcasting agency, the BBC, has launched its very own sports application for iPhone and iPad owners delivering the ultimate sports fans’ guide to live news, stats, fixtures and results, and other curated content.
The home screen displays the top stories across the world of sport. Users get an entire page dedicated to Football (that’s soccer for Americans), Formula 1, Cricket, Rugby Union, Rugby League, Tennis, and Golf.
A separate page is reserved for all the other main sports, UK nations, and major events.
Users get daily live text commentaries from BBC journalists, detailed football live scores, match stats, a full season’s football fixtures, and the ability to customize the app with quick links to their favorite sport.
Users can share stories and results on social networks and email. In a future release, the BBC will include links to the BBC mobile site for stats pages.
The broadcast company promises to notify users whenever new features are about to be made available. BBC Sport requires iOS 5.0.
