The BBC finally launched an Android version of its BBC Sport app today, bringing all of the content from the BBC Sport website to you without making you visit through the browser.

The app has arrived just in time for "squeaky bum time" in the English Premier League, and the score of every single game that is being played in the Football League will be available to view as each game progresses.

Just like on the BBC website, live text commentary will be available for big games, such as Champions League and Premiership clashes, with video clips being made available to play through the app too.

BBC Sport doesn't just concentrate on football; with lots of cricket, rugby, and Formula 1 coming up over the next few months, fans of those sports will be glad to know that the app also has dedicated pages for each of them, and you can navigate between each with a couple of taps.

As with every other BBC service in the UK, you can download the app for free from the Play Store. The only requirement is that you're running Android 2.2 or later.

      Really? That's strange, it's compatible with everything of mine from the Nexus One to the GS3.

      What 4.2 requirement? It says it should work on 2.2+.

    Nice to see BBC finally release one, since Formula 1 charge an astronomic cost for their live timing and results app, this will be a nice app for F1 results (though not live timings) as the BBC have very good coverage of the F1 season.

      Ya that F1 Live Timing app is just plain BS. I'm an F1 nut and the price is insane. A few seasons back, the mobile site could display live timing but they took that out too. Plus I got the app last year and it never worked for me (some "port" issues).

      In case you hadn't noticed, I'm Android Police's Manchester branch. And I definitely know about squeaky bum time.

          Since he started writing for AP back in probably 2011.

        Squeaky bum time doesn't come round till mid March. Academic, I know :)

        And the way you mention "end of the EPL season"...there's 3 whole months to go mate!

        Btw I'm assuming you're from the red half of Manchester so congrats for the title in advance.

        • http://twitter.com/british_geek John Thompson

          Yes mate, red half. We may be avoiding it entirely this year, was in Madrid last week having a beer over our 12 point lead!
