When it comes to following your favorite sport, football in my case, or your favorite team in a sport, you have plenty of options thanks to the advance of smartphones and mobile apps. While it is still possible to buy newspapers for results and news, or browse Internet sites for faster updates, mobile apps bring real-time updates to the table no matter where you are.

Probably the most important feature next to support for your favorite leagues and sports is the application's responsiveness and how fast information get updated by it.

A great looking app does not really help you that much if it updates scores every ten minutes, hour, or even 24 hour period only.

theScore: Sports & Scores is without doubt one of the most responsive sports scoring and news applications for the Android operating system.

When you first start the application after installation you are presented with the leagues thta it supports. Available are Mixed Martial Arts (UFC and Bellator), NFL, NBA, MLB, NCAA Football and Basketball, NHL, European football leagues such as Bundesliga, Serie A, La Liga or EPL, Formula 1 Racing, Golf and a lot more.

A tap on any league listed by the app provides you with detailed information about it. If you select the English Premier League for instance, you get access to scores and fixtures by default. You can change the display to news, standings or leaders here easily. The selection menu may differ depending on which league you select. If you select MMA for instance, you get information about events, news and rankings.

You can tap on any match you are interested in, past, current or future, to get additional information about it. Here you find out where it is played, about odds, and team injuries if any.

That's still not all though. You can tap on a team here to get team specific news, schedules and roster information, and add it to your favorites. Doing so displays a notification configuration prompt. Here you can select information like goals, red cards or breaking news that you want to be informed about in real time.

team notifications follow players

Another interesting feature is the ability to follow individual players. This is available for team-based sports like football or basketball, but not for others like MMA.

The app ships with widgets that you can make use of to display information right on your home screen. You can use it to track up to five leagues of your choosing right from there.

Closing Words

If you are interested in a specific sports league, a team, or even individual players, then you will like what the application has to offer. It is very responsive and while the visual appeal of it suffers somewhat because of that, many will probably prefer a faster fluid app instead of one that looks pretty but is not as responsive in the end.

The app is a great source of information if you bet on sports, have joined a fantasy league, or simply want to be informed about news and events as they unfold.

    Uhh, this has already been possible – I am not sure how but remember my brother telling me about it. I’m not a whatsapp user so not sure of the specifics, but something about sending the image as a file and somehow bypassing the default compression settings that are applied to inbound photos.

    He has also used this to share movies to whatsapp groups, and files 1Gb+.

    Like I said, I never used whatsapp, but I know 100% this isn’t a “brand new feature”, my brother literally showed me him doing it, like… 5 months ago?

    Martin, what happened to those: 12 Comments ( Is there a specific justifiable reason why they were deleted?

    Hmm, it looks like the gHacks website database is faulty, and not populating threads with their relevant cosponsoring posts.

    The page on ghacks this is on represents the best of why it has become so worthless, fill of click-bait junk that it’s about to be deleted from my ‘daily reads’.

    It’s really like “Press Release as re-written by some d*ck for clicks…poorly.” And the subjects are laughable. Can’t wait for “How to search for files on Windows”.

      > The page on ghacks this is on represents the best of why it has become so worthless, fill of click-bait junk…

      Sadly, I have to agree.

      Only Martin and Ashwin are worth subscribing to.
      Especially Emre Çitak and Shaun are the worst ones.

      If intended “Clickbait”, it would mark the end of Ghacks Technology News.
      Ghacks doesn’t need crappy clickbaits. Clearly separate articles from newer authors (perhaps AIs and external sales person or external advertising man) as just “Advertisements”!

      We, the subscribers of Ghacks, urge Martin to make a decision.

    because nevermore wants to “monetize” on every aspect of human life…

    “Threads” is like the Walmart of Social Media.

    How hard can it be to clone a twitter version of that as well? They’re slow.

  7. Paul(us) said on August 21, 2023 at 5:16 pm

    Yes, why not mention how large the HD files can be?
    Why, not mention what version of WhatsApp is needed?
    These omissions make the article feel so bare. If not complete.

      Sorry posted on the wrong page.

    such a long article for such a simple matter. Worthless article ! waste of time

    I already do this by attaching them via the ‘Document’ option.

    I don’t know what’s going on here at Ghacks but it’s obvious that something is broken, comments are being mixed whatever the article, I am unable to find some of my later posts neither. :S

    Quoting the article,
    “As users gain popularity, the value of their tokens may increase, allowing investors to reap rewards.”

    Besides, beyond the thrill and privacy risks or not, the point is to know how you gain popularity, be it on social sites as everywhere in life. Is it by being authentic, by remaining faithful to ourselves or is it to have this particular skill which is to understand what a majority likes, just like politicians, those who’d deny to the maximum extent compatible with their ideological partnership, in order to grab as many of the voters they can?

    I see the very concept of this as unhealthy, propagating what is already an increasing flaw : the quest for fame. I won’t be the only one to count himself out, definitely.

    1. Tom Hawack said on August 23, 2023 at 2:34 pm

      @John G. is right : my comment was posted on [] and it appears there but as well here at []

      This has been lasting for several days. Fix it or at least provide some explanations if you don’t mind.

    > Google Chrome is following in Safari’s footsteps by introducing a new feature that allows users to move the Chrome address bar to the bottom of the screen, enhancing user accessibility and interaction.

    Firefox did this long before Safari.

    Basically they’ll do anything except fair royalties.
