    News, gossip, video/audio replays, and live sports coverage

    • Major sports served better

    "Super sports coverage from 'the Beeb'"

    THE VERDICT

    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 PROS

    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 CONS

    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.

    Slow and with some very annoying features. This app has got progressively worse over the years.... particularly annoying is the way fixtures are now shown, having to scroll through previous results is pointless, just have a separate tab for them!

    Works great, all sporting info at your finger tips, only sends alerts that the user has requested. It's one of my go-to apps and fully deserves 5 stars.
