It’s the best time of year for any sports fan as they get to enjoy football, baseball, basketball, racing and more. So stay on top of your game with the following apps perfect for sports fans.
In the name of all that is good and holy, let ESPN SportsCenter be your bible for sports. This is your source for live scores, instant play-by-play updates, video highlights, in-depth analysis and the latest news in the world of sports.

You’re not a real sports fan if you don’t have the ESPN SportsCenter app – this is the one bandwagon you should actually jump on if you haven’t already.
Yahoo Fantasy Football & More
Fantasy Football makes the NFL season even more exciting than it already is. The Yahoo Fantasy Football & More application makes it super easy to manage your team and roster – crucial for Sundays when it’s games galore. Best of all, use it for talking smack to the other “managers” you’re playing against.

The sport with a ridiculously long season needs a ridiculously on-point app. NBA Game Time keeps you on the ball all nine months long, as well as during the off-season “break” too.
