ESPN hasn't exactly been the poster child for great app design in the past. While the company has made several Android apps, many of them have looked rather atrocious and a bit too iOS-y. ESPN, however, has re-launched its ESPN Radio app. The old app appears to have been made by independent company Airkast, while the new app has been brought in-house. And, apparently, ESPN's house does a fine job of making an app. Just take a look:

And the shiny new one

The new app adheres much more closely to Google's app guidelines and looks much better for it. If you already had the app installed previously, you'll probably need to redownload it from the Play Store, as it has a new pname on the Play Store and the old version has been removed. The new version requires Android 2.1 and up, so even though the app has gotten a fancy facelift, don't worry if you're not part of the 11% of users on 4.0 or above.

The app was not found in the store. :-(
