1. ESPN ScoreCenter
Features: This comprehensive and extensive score-tracking app from ESPN pulls in scores from over 500 leagues around the world! From tracking American Football, (NFL) all the way to Cricket and Rugby in Australia, ESPN ScoreCenter delivers the results, always letting you know about the latest pitch, goal and run.
Why we love it: Enthusiasts, junkies, or even the occasional browser will find satisfaction with the exhaustive listings in ESPN ScoreCenter. With just the right amount of detail for a brief but detailed viewing, how can it not be popular for all Sports fans alike?
2. MLB.com At Bat 2009
Features: MLB fans should rejoice – their iPod/iPhone is now a portable baseball game viewer. While it’s a paid app, users are allowed to watch one baseball game a day. After that, they still have Gameday Audio and Gameday available to them. As a bonus, MLB.tv subscribers get to watch the remaining games of the season for free.
Why we love it: Not only does the app provide live viewing of one game per day, you can still follow other games LIVE. Plus, being a mlb.tv subscriber nets you as many live game views as you want. Finally, there’s a solution for the people who must watch the critical play-off clinching game but don’t have access to a TV at that very moment.
3. The Open Championship
Features: Remarkable coverage of the Golf championships – including live news, scores, player profiles, and even the weather of the golf course! Also includes tweets and twitpics from the day’s plays.
Why we love it: With the Turnberry Championships recently occurring, it’s no wonder why this app is so popular. Golf enthusiasts thrived with the info, scores, and tweets they got live with this app during the championships.
4. College Football Live!
Features: It’s tough keeping up with all those college football games; College Football Live makes sure you stay current and up to date with the latest scores, plays, and so on. Included is the push system – so you’re connected in close to real time. While you “watch” the games in a play-by-play manner, you can even “boo” or “cheer”, and talk smack to your other friends. You even get polls from AP/BCS/Coaches included.
Why we love it: It’s college football. You know your college is the best. What makes it even better is when your team scores that game winning touch down and you can rub it in, to all your losing friends.
5. Le Tour 2009
Features: With Lance Armstrong’s return to the tour de France, this app is ideal for following the latest standings, times, and maps. As a neat little bonus, there’s a twitter feed that lets you know what the cyclists thought of the race. How cool is that!
Why we love it: The tour de France is arguably the biggest race in all of cycling. Especially with Lance’s return to the race – making it a super close, suspenseful chase for the gold, who wouldn’t want to tune in and read what Lance is thinking via twitter?!
