BBC Sport app makes its Windows Phone debut for coverage of football, rugby and more

The BBC has launched a number of apps for Windows Phone in the past such as iPlayer, but the British broadcaster is back with a new entry. BBC Sport is now available in the Windows Phone Store, offering users a way to access tons of sports news from the UK and around the world.

Sports fans should take a look at this app's features:

  • Home screen displaying the top stories across the world of sport
  • Sections for UK nations and global events
  • Live tile showing top sports headlines
  • Comprehensive football news, analysis, live scores, tables, match stats and text commentaries – plus the gossip column
  • Dedicated indexes for dozens of sports, including football, F1, cricket, rugby union, rugby league, tennis and golf
  • Share stories and results with your friends and followers

Hopefully, this development will be followed by an official BBC News app at some point. Some of you may remember that a third-party developer made a well-regarded Windows Phone BBC News app in 2011. That app was removed from the Windows Phone Store in 2013 thanks to pressure from the BBC.

Downloaded the app? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
