BBC Sport app now has an iPad version. The app has been available on iOS for over a year, but as of last week it’s a universal app with a full version for the iPad.
This is great news if you’re a fan of great sports coverage, and especially of coverage that goes beyond just major US sports. Here’s a little of the App Store description of the app:
The official BBC Sport app is the sports fan’s guide to live sport news, stats, fixtures and results, curated by the BBC’s team of sport journalists. Users can also read articles and analysis, follow live scores and even customise and set quick links to favourite sports and football teams.
The app’s layout is fairly similar to the look of the BBC online Sports section. There’s a home page with top sports stories from around the world and a large number of dedicated sections for individual sports.
The sections for individual sports cover lots of sports that are fascinating to keep up that hardly ever even get a mention in US sports media – like Rugby, Athletics, Cricket, and Formula 1, just to name a few.
And of course the app offers latest scores and results and excellent in-depth coverage of Football. Football of the Premier League, La Liga, Serie A, Bundesliga, and World Cup variety that is.
I spent a long time living in the UK and I’m a huge fan of football and rugby and a number of the sports that are covered so well by BBC Sport. It offers coverage I just can’t find in US titles. So this iPad version is a sight for my sore eyes and is an instant new favorite app for me.
Here’s an App Store link for BBC Sport; it’s a free app and a universal app designed for both iPad and iPhone.
