ESPN's Fantasy Football app isn't new to these parts. It's been up and down the gridiron more than once over the years, and it has no problem handling pigskin. But it did need to sit out a few games while its developers cracked out a much needed redesign. The latest app, which has been knocked from version 3.x back down to 1.0, looks like something better fit to play in the KitKat era.

The changes go deeper than a clean uniform and fresh warpaint. Some new functionality has made its way into the app. Here's the provided list of features.

What's new:

  • NEW! Alerts! Get notified of trades, injuries, and scoring updates.
  • NEW! Sign in or register right from the app or use Facebook to login!
  • NEW! Draft: live auction and snake drafts, including access to our Mock and Live Draft Lobbies.
  • NEW! Invite friends to your league via social media
  • NEW! An updated modern look and feel
  • Team and Roster Management: Start/bench players, add, drop, and claim players off waivers, propose, accept or reject trades.
  • FantasyCast Live Scoring
  • Fantasy News and Videos from ESPN fantasy analysts.
  • Talk trash to your weekly opponent, or if you’re feeling brave to your entire league.

Early user reviews look positive, so fantasy football fans may do well to hit up the widget below.

    Thank GOD! The old one still looked like a crappy iOS port.

    Yea I just downloaded this last night, HUGE improvement over the last one. They have live and mock drafts available now which is a huge plus.

    Wow! It was almost comical how, in 2013, their app had been basically unchanged since 2010. Did they smarten up and get rid of the ridiculous banner ad at the bottom??

    Woot...Hopefully that got rid of that stupid bug where when watching your points if the screen was on longer than 2 minutes it would show old points. In which you would have to refresh the app to get the current points. In addition to this the other issue I had was the slow response times it would take to move from the list of all scores to my head to head score.

    BADLY needed. Looks and feels good, though. Can't wait to work my fantasy GM magic and win my work league!
