    "Super sports coverage from 'the Beeb'"


    The BBC Sport app is one of the best all-rounders for sporting events in the UK and around the world, and its coverage of major sports is second to none. With this functional app from the Beeb, you can add cool notifications widgets to your home screen (so you don't miss any of the action), get audio and video replays, match analysis, and all the latest sporting gossip.


    The app is uncluttered and easy to navigate, and you can add a BBC Sport widget to your Notifications Centre. You can set alerts for the latest news form your favorite sports, and add quick links form the homescreen for the events you most follow.

    BBC coverage is always second-to-none: it's constantly updated and this app gives you plenty of audio and visual content, sport analysis, gossip, and access to live radio coverage.


    The major sports are better served than minor here, and you can only set alerts for cricket, football, and formula one. The design is perhaps a little too 'functional', and could be sleeker. Navigation could certainly be smoother and swipable.
