Yahoo has been on quite a tear lately with new CEO Marissa Mayer at the helm. Today the one-time search king has updated the app formerly known as Sportacular. Now it's Yahoo Sports, and it comes with a complete 4.0 redesign.

The app plugs into your Yahoo ID and syncs the sportsball information most relevant to your interests. The new UI is dark with some Holo design elements. Although, the action bar is apparently on the injured list. Here is the full list of changes in 4.0:

  • Refreshed design - Enjoy a clean new redesign with improved scores and simplified navigation.
  • Login to your Yahoo! Sports account to sync your favorite teams across all screens; iPhone, iPad, Android and the web.
  • Team stats - You can now view the team total game stats from the game details page.

The app seems very well-designed for phones, and moderately solid on tablets. It is the same UI, but it scales better than some apps. Yahoo Sports is free, so fans ought to give it a go.
