bbc sport

Many moons ago (read: back in February), the BBC released a sport app for people who are in to that sort of thing. People rejoiced, birds sang, rainbows formed, yadda yadda, yadda... then the whole world realized the app was only for UK residents. Everything went dark. Storms brewed across nations, wars broke out, and hate consumed the very souls of those affected by the tragedy. It was the beginning of the end.

Fast-forward to today. While much of the world is still suffering the consequences that BBC Sports brought down upon us, things are finally starting to look up. The BBC just released its Sport app under its global brand BBC Worldwide, which makes it available for all users. It appears that this version of the app has been largely unchanged from its UK-centric counterpart, so it should cover all the same bases (no, that's not a baseball pun. This app has nothing to do with baseball.):

• Home screen displaying the top stories across the world of sport.
• A page for Football, Formula 1, Cricket, Rugby Union, Rugby League, Tennis, Golf
• A page for all the other main sports, plus major events
• Daily live text commentaries from BBC journalists
• Detailed football live scores, match stats and text commentaries
• A full season’s football fixtures and results searchable by day
• Football tables
• Pages for football team and league news
• Share stories and results by email and on social networks
• The BBC will be adding new features to the app and will notify you when they become available in Google Play.

Let peace rain down from the heavens.

    Being the BBC, shouldn't this be a "sport app", not a "sports app"? :)

      No. It's an app for "BBC Sport". Not a "sports app" for the BBC.

    Silly me, expecting video and such.

    Wow! It's even tablet optimized. Looks nice on my N10.

    Er, the bbc sport app is a VIDEO app, not this. This is just a glorified link to the bbc mobile sport site. Nothing's changed.
