Today I’m here to put in a quick review of the app called “SportCaster.” Created by OneLouder, the same company that has FriendCaster and TweetCaster available.
The application is currently free, but there is a pro version available that is ad-free. As of 9/23/11 in the Android Market, it has an average rating of 4.4 out of 5.
Currently, only NCAA Football and NFL Football are the only sports available, but there will be plans to increase the coverage of sports as those seasons progress.
Upon starting the app, you have a few options to pick from. You can see what people on Twitter are saying about the game, without actually owning a Twitter account. You can also keep up with schedules, standings, and scores. Another nice feature is the ability to track players for your Fantasy Football team.
You can fine-tune what you see by selecting what teams you want to see, as well as filtering players, media, and others out of the feed.
When you check on scores, you have a preview awaiting you as well as the conversation as it happens.
The actual app runs smoothly, there isn’t any bugs (from what I can tell, anyways), and it’s really handy for football season.
One downfall is the lack of sports, which should be fixed as we head closer to the seasons. So if you aren’t a fan of American Football, you should skip this one for now. Also, it seems like mid-major football programs are forgotten, so count on every single team making it to the list.
Otherwise, I highly recommend this app for your smart phone. This app is available through Apple’s App Store and the Android Market.
