  • This app is ok, but I hate when you click on a news article and it launches an ESPN Mobile browser page in the app, rather than displaying the info within the app. I believe the iPhone app does it the same way actually, but I have not used it in a while.
  • Just downloaded it, looks like it'll be my go-to app for following the O's this season. No live tile support though? Or am I just missing it?
  • Finally!!!. been waiting on this app for a while. Overall i really like this app. I agree with Pete, i wish everything was displayed in the app instead of opening ESPN mobile. I also hope they add live tile support later on.
  • One of my favorite apps on iPhone.
  • FINALLY!!! Ever since my switch from Evo to Arrive (which has only been about 2 weeks) I have been waiting for this app! The design is alright, could have been better. No real complaints except like the previous posters mentioned it takes you to the mobile web which is annoying. Only tidbits I have so far!EDIT: I just sent them some feedback on the articles to be displayed within the app, not the web! You guys should follow suit so that they can fix the problem and not think only a few people are bothered but multiple people!
  • Finally!!! The one App I missed from the iPhone. The App works the same way as the Iphone version going to the mobile web. Hopefully they will update it quickly with push game starts, scoring, quarter or inning updates, and score final updates. The iPhone version would make the Sportscenter jingle and update you on the game. Hopefully this means we will start seeing some official Apps from other media outlets CNN, CNBC, CBS Sports, and maybe some banking and brokerage apps...(I know, keep dreaming...)
  • Anyone heard any ETA on NHL Gamecenter? It's listed as 2010-2011 season........we are almost to the playoffs. =/
  • It' good but so is scoremobile
  • ScoreMobile is nice, but I think ESPN Sportscenter is faster... and a whole lot cleaner.
  • I was wondering how long it would take you to mention Auburn...Roll Tide!
