Why should you get a sports app on your phone?

First, you might be wondering if it’s even worth getting a sports app on your phone. After all, flat screen TVs are meant to be the best format to enjoy watching any kind of entertainment on, especially live sporting action. 

While enjoying your favorite sports in the comfort of your own home is always a great thing, there are definitely times when you wish you had a way to enjoy your sports when you find yourself outside of the home. From being stuck at an awkward family gathering to finding yourself waiting and killing time while in the mall or anywhere else, having a sports app handy on your smart phone can be a great distraction. From live-streamed games to fun sites like, there is a world of fun available at your fingertips.

If you want to enjoy some live action

There are several great apps designed and released by major sporting leagues and championships, designed to help you stay updated with all of the latest action in your preferred sport. Tennis fans, for example, can keep up with the full schedule of the ATP Tour, including tournaments such as the Australian Open, French Open and the ATP Finals, at the end of the year. With the chance to watch matches live as they happen, as well as keep an eye on the scores as they come through, you’re sure to never miss any of the excitement, or lose track of your favourite player through the season.

Want to get some gaming in?

If you want a little more of an interactive thrill, then you might want to check out some of the options available in mobile games. One of the most popular ones out there, particularly with NFL fans, is the EA Madden NFL Mobile Football app. This game is free to download, with the option to purchase additional players by unlocking packs in-game. If you don’t want to spend any money, you can also earn packs through tasks and challenges in the game itself.

If you’re also a baseball fan, then the MLB has its own app, offering a realistic and highly enjoyable gaming experience. You can pitch, bat and manage your team, with the option to upgrade your players too. It’s perfect if you want to test out your management skills and put them to the test with this fun and lively app.
