It's that time of the year. Flowers are blooming, temperatures are rising, and college basketball is in full swing. Thankfully, ESPN has updated its Bracket Bound app to bring fans up-to-date with the latest scores, conference standings, and forecasts for the 75th NCAA Tournament. As before, you can quickly access game results, schedules, player and team stats, video clips, and team-related discussions on Twitter. With this release, ESPN has also added a customizable list of shortcuts in the navigation menu for your favorite teams. But you will have to be signed into your Facebook or ESPN accounts to configure those selections.


Some people might notice that there is no way to fill out your own brackets. While this feature is missing from the current 4.0 release, ESPN notes that bracket creation will be coming soon. March 21st kicks off round two of the NCAA Tournament and will be the deadline to submit your picks.

Unfortunately, it looks like tablets are being left out of the loop. Both my Nexus 7 and Galaxy Tab 10.1 are marked as incompatible. Still, If you're eager to keep up with some college hoops, hit the widget below.

Update 3/5/13: A new update v4.0.1 fixed tablet compatibility - thanks for letting us know, @novalsi.
