Smart phone apps to keep you up to date on the sports news

The way technology has improved over the years is impressive. Where you once had to use Teletext many years back, now you can have all the sporting information that you need via an app on your smartphone. With a few clicks of a button, you can find out Diogo Jota stats, the latest transfer news, live tennis scores, or when your favorite boxer will be fighting. It’s easy to use, most information is instant and you don’t have to pay for the services.

When it comes to the smartphone app to use, the market is huge. Many companies offer sports news updates but how reputable are they and is the app reliable? (always read the reviews before downloading an app). Below we look into six different apps for you to consider to get your fix or sporting news.

Sky Sports App

A go-to for most sporting activities would be the Sky Sports app. The Sky Sports app is available on Android and Apple devices. It’s easy to use and covers most sports including, football, rugby, boxing, formula 1, golf, NFL, and much more. You’ll have live updates added to the app as and when they happen and if you pay for the subscription, you can watch live sports. On the app you have access to exclusive content written by previous professionals of your favorite sports, this could be an analysis of the game or an opinion on how they think they will do next season. Whether you want the app for live transfers, manager interviews, sports clips, or live scores, you’ll have it all at your fingertip.

The BBC Sports App

Another app that we would recommend when looking for a sports news app is the BBC Sports app. This app is free to download and just like Sky Sports covers the majority of sporting events. BBC send their own reporters, allowing for different types of articles that can be released quicker than their competitors. This means that you can use this app alongside another for all your sporting news. Other benefits the BBC Sports app offers are live sports and highlights, instant updates, scores & fixtures, and analysis.

Yahoo Sport

Scoring 4.2 stars and having over 10 million-plus downloads on the Android app store, Yahoo Sports is becoming increasingly popular for sporting news. Their app offers real-time scores, you can follow the latest storylines as they come out and you can follow your favorite team. Sports that the app covers are football, NFL, cycling, cricket, formula one, boxing, MMA, and much more. Knowledgeable retired players like Jermaine Jenas and Steve McManaman contribute articles regularly to the site, some giving you in-depth analysis.


Never miss a sporting moment with the ESPN App. From live scores for every game, live updates, stats & highlights to fan videos, this app has it all. When signing up you can personalize your profile so that content only relevant to your interests is presented to you. All your favorite sports will be covered from football to tennis, cricket to golf, NBA, NFL, and more. It works on both IOS devices and Android, so download it today to never miss out.


Use the talkSPORT app to listen to live sports radio as well as get breaking sports news, listen to previous exclusive podcasts, and hear about debates on popular subjects. TalkSPORT focuses heavily on football but also covers sports such as cricket, boxing, tennis, and more. As the start of the season gets closer, expect to hear more about the transfer news and whether they think the teams are doing a good or bad job in the market. Who will win the Premier League this year? Will Liverpool beat City this year or will an underdog compete and win it? You’ll hear all about it on TalkSPORT.


Dazn focuses heavily on boxing but is slowly venturing into other markets such as women’s football. Watch boxing live on the app, get exclusive boxing content and hear about the different fights being lined up as soon as they are in. Uefa women’s champions league is being shown on the app, helping eyes to the sport and giving you a place to get fresh stories on it. The app is available on both IOS and Android, accessible on mobile devices and tablets. Download now to get all the latest boxing and women’s football news.

There is a whole myriad of apps out there that you can use to find out anything that you are interested in. The above are six that we would recommend.
