  • Longtime user of SofaScore, a really great app for keep track of scores, getting notified of match start times, match statistics etc. Very well done, universal, customizable notifications, the works! 
  • Yeah I can't believe SofaScore isn't in the article. It's definitely the most complete, the very best
  • They halt the development of sofascore
  • Who told you?
  • Did they really? That's a shame, if true.
  • Most probably not,
  • If this is true, then that's the last straw for me and +1. I don't care much about all the other twittee dee and twittee dum apps. I was already on the fence. Any one know if sofascore is available on windows mobile 10?
  • It is. Im using it on my Windows 10 mobile
  • Sofa score is available and it is mentioned in the article.
  • One of the best apps available for keeping up with scores.
  • You forgot sofascore.Too good with a charming user interface.
  • SofaScore is there in article.
  • sofa score.....
  • Eurosport is my favourite. Very beautiful app..
  • I dont know why I trust MSN Sports for my sports info.
  • SofaScore FTW :D And for Hungarian users like me, there's also the M4 Sport app :D
  • I like using Awesome Lock for live scores on my lock screen and a live tile. You pick your favorite teams and it always stays updated. Sadly, it's unreliable and needs to be reset every couple of days.
  • Do lock screen apps still function in W10M???
  • ESPN sucks. They took away live tile scores...trying to use gamecast or opening most articles, opens the browser like an amateur app (iOS and Android dont do this). I could go on and on.
  • You forgot taking away our FFL app.
  • Is SofaScore, Sofa King Good?
  • Definitely worth checking out.
  • Sofa score user here too. Can't believe it wasn't covered. Great to keep track of multiple sports with reliable notification and pleasing uwp ui.
  • Here too: Sofascore is my favorite. Tried a lot others, but Sofascore beats all. And important for me: Sofascore is more Europe focused.
  • Which sport do you prefer? If football then you should also give a try to Onefootball
  • Um, Goal Live Scores?
  • Sofascore is the best out there.... No second thought. It would be great if the developer can give us an option for a dark theme.
  • What happen with CBS Sports? Not opening any more!!
  • Personally I just want fresh up to date live scores from the pro games when I am away from the tv and the Scores And Alert Apps from Luno Software are the best. I pin the live tiles of the games I'm interested in and it does a great job of keeping it up to date.
  • Before reading about any app I only thought about sofa score. It's the only sports app I need once I install any device windows, android or ios. I wish I had available for Latin America ESPN play, but only on android or ios, and the web streams using old flash, so unusable on windows uwp.
  • You should edit the article and add in the first place SofaScore. They made an excellent job in uwp.
  • Onefootball and Msn Sport
  • No Mlb At bat anymore,the reason why I ditched my 930 and now use a Nexus 5x. Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • Screw MLB and their money sucking. You can have At Bat. LOL I'll listen to the games for free with MLB Streamer
  • Sportsapps.....are you kiddin me. There are none/nada good sportsapps in the microsoft system. And that's a fact.
  • Sportsapps.....are you kiddin me. There are none/nada good sportsapps in the microsoft system. And that's a fact.
  • It depends on what you want. All I want are scores on the go, and there's plenty of enough apps for that. And that's a fact
  • Making a fool of yourself? Check out the official Formula 1 app. Sorry baardje :)
  • I love this kind of articles. Could anyone suggest I good app for news?
  • I use MSN app and it lets me pick which fake news source i want to be miss lead with.
  • By the way, an article suggesting the best Windows phone apps would be very much appreciated!
  • I love sofascore. It's the Great app in sports category for WP.
  • For those fans of soccer out there, OneFootball. Highly recommended!!!
  • I love using Sports to pin a tile of my favorite team so that I can get completely irrelevant headlines from sources like the Inquirer. #garbageSources&topics
  • We need bleacher report and NBA app...
  • And...NHL app, and MLB: at Bat, and MLB: Ballpark, NFL app that is even somewhat comparable to other systems. Face it, M10M, has a glaring app gap when it comes to sports apps.
  • MSN Sports is at best, passable. Live Tile needs to be brought up to Win 10 with transparency. NHL Box Scores are still the only sport that does not have an integrated Box Score. Crappy re-direct to MSN site. Meanwhile, I can get full fidelity scores and summaries from the Canadian Football League.
  • In these apps you have to keep check the app. There is a app called sofascore.. It's the best app if you are busy and still wants to follow the games.
  • ESPN app are all horrible, half-baked garbage. They never work properly
  • I would agree, but having streamed 3 games to 1 over the Fox app with zero crashes vs the ~15 in the fox crap, I can't anymore.
  • So surprised Onefootball hasn't made this list. They're one of the oldest (in terms of support for Windows) and one of the best in terms of notifications, UI and content.
  • I agree, for football it is the best and nothing comes a close second
  • Try Sofascore, it's much better / more complete
  • Only for one sport but F1 is very very good app. Cheers.
  • For football only, Onefootball has the best usability and looks (UI) I think
  • I used to use MSN sport but got fed up with irrelevant story's about my footy team. Most of the news was tat! Sky sports apps are OK but need updating and scrolling is very stuttered. You can have a lock screen though. Sky football centre is OK as well thanks to the vidiprinter facility. BBC sport is a nice app, but live tile is ????? All the UK sports apps, from the big providers NEED updates.
  • Just d/l sofa score. I didn't even know it existed!! What a great app! Loads of detailed info about my team in premier league! Fab app, and yes, why isn't it in the list!!
  • Lol cover pic is from kodi!
  • I downloaded SofaScore based on the comments (always trust comments over actual article) here. I must say it's a good app. It has tennis and American/Canadian football. App just needs some display options such as a dark theme.
  • It has dark theme.
  • Eurosport--when you just have to see that another soccer game ended in a 1-1 tie.
  • This is not a sports app, this is a news app that covers sports. Sports apps monitor fitness.
  • no, fitness apps monitor fitness, sports apps cover sports.
  • Please please update Uber or send Uber dev to update asap, so much tweaking is required...
  • For F1 fans, the official Formula One app is also worth looking at.
  • FoxSports Go is pretty good app for folks into racing and have Fox Sports with their cable provider.
  • Sofa score is very good for keeping track of sport, I am mainly concerned about soccer, I like one football very well it has lots of features.
  • Another good free app to stream live sport events:
  • This is such a sad list.......the ESPN app is horrible compared to it's IOS and Android versions. I appreciate the watchESPN app though, glad we have that. The worst thing about having a W10M phone is the apps, and developers aren't doing us any favors. There are basically no fantasy sports apps, and the ones that we have, are tremendously horrible. There are 3rd party apps for them, but they are not good. And sports games.........forget about it. There are no baseball, or football, or golf games worth playing in the Winstore. Soccer games are there, but it is seriously lacking, and it has since the start, and it hasn't changed. It's a shame really, W10M has so much potential, and MS made all these tools for app developers to port their apps, and ut hasn't really come to fruition. I'll probably be moving on from my Lumia 950, and seeing what the new GS8 is all about.
  • What continues to baffle me is those who complain so much about the Windows 10 ecosystem, yet still use it.  I don't have any issue with the sports applications for Windows 10 or Windows 10 Mobile.  Sports gives me the live tile updates if I just want a glance.  It also does a good job at covering my favorite teams and players.  I like how the ESPN app looks and use that on occasion.  The NFL app is pretty good, and Sofascore is probably one of the best.  There are a lot of other apps for specific sports if you search for them. Having a constructive debate about the pro's and cons about an ecosystem is one thing, but just complaining is empty rhetoric.
  • I use the following
    1. Sofascore - Brilliant but they have now put the development for the win10 app on hold which is such a shame.
    2. Sports
    3. One Football
    4. Cricbuzz
    5. Formula1 k nice uwa
    6.1st for fans Manchester United
    What i miss is an official, fully functional Premier League app including Fantasy Premier League
  • Can't believe the apps from Luno Software never get mentioned. If you're into the 4 major sports in the US these apps have excellent live tiles that update almost instantaneously (along with notifications) when there is a score change. The MLB and NFL ones have lots of detail on the tiles.
    Just did a search and the MLB one isn't there wth. Still working on my W10M 1520 though..
  • espn sucks
  • Very surprised that ESPN hasn't updated their desktop app for Windows 10... has been the same since Windows 8. It sucks and I uninstalled it because it's depressing to use. Surprising because ESPN stays cutting edge on other platforms.  Hopefully this is the year they release an up-to-date desktop app with features and UI I'd expect.
  • SofaScore looks very useful and simple for fаns
  • Sofascore ❤👌
  • SofaScore is the best 💘
  • Yes sofa score is the best app in this universe
  • Hello.Sometime it helps to complain.
