OnPoint Sports - Live Football is a brand new application for Android that provides you with all there is to know -- and some that you may not need to know -- about football.
The app covers American Football and not the world's most popular sport. Once you have installed the app on your Android device -- it requires only two extra permissions -- you are ready to dive in to the data right away.
The start screen displays pairings of the current match week, and an option to go back to previous weeks to check out results and stats.
A tap on a game loads the game summary which provides you with highlights, records and general information about weather conditions, the venue or the surface of the pitch.
You may subscribe to games to get notifications on your device, or scroll through the stats the app offers manually.
The game shines when it comes to statistics. First, it provides you with over 1000 statistics and data points, from -- very -- detailed head to head comparison stats to play-by-play information, player stats and game time stats.
Here are some examples of what you get: a team's fourth down efficiency in a game, passing attempts and completions, detailed information about fumbles, blocked punt returns and two point conversion.
It takes a while to go through all these stats, but that is not all the application has to offer.
If you select a player, you may look at regular information about him, his performance in past games and also a news feed that provides you with additional information such as about injuries.
The same is true for teams that you are interested in. Check out a team's news feed to stay in touch, open detailed stats, rooster information or a team's schedule all from within the application.
A snapshot is provided for each team detailing records, average yards stats and efficiency information.
There you may also take a look at the rooster to get information about injuries and the status of a player.
What else do you get?
You can compare players head to head or entire teams, get player projections for fantasy football, check out data from past seasons dating back to 2012, or look at live game highlights or play-by-play and field animations.
The developers plans to add MLB and NFL information down the road to the application on top of all that.
If you like to watch football or play in a fantasy league, then you may like OnPoint Sports - Live Football a lot. One thing that seems to be missing right now is the option to follow a particular team.
