Requirements: Android 2.0+
Overview: You're not just a sports fan--you're a sports fanatic. You want the latest news and scuttlebutt on all your favorite teams, and you want it now, as soon as it breaks. You want SportCaster Pro for Android.
Getting your sports news and information from the paper (what's that?), electronic media (mainstream and slow), or the Web (cluttered and behind) is so 2009. These days, the action is on Twitter, where the writers, players, and coaches communicate directly with the fans and everyone can join in the conversation.
"Hey, Did You Hear?"
SportCaster Pro is an app that connects you directly with this brave new world, bringing you live college and pro sports with a social voice. Got a favorite NFL team? The app lets you flag the team (or teams, if you divide your loyalties) and then generates a Twitter feed with everything related to that team. This includes journalists, bloggers, fans, and those connected directly to the team, all commenting before, during, and after games. Or you can limit the feed to specific hashtags that you enter.
You can also follow a general Twitter feed for the NFL, college football, or a particular college conference. There's even a feed dedicated to tweets by the best fantasy sports experts. Never miss breaking news and be the first among your friends to know what's going on.
What could be better than this? How about being able to participate in the discussion without ever leaving the app? When you've got something to say, just hit Compose and share your insights with the world. Easily attach a photo or a video to your tweet. You can also tap on any tweet to reply, retweet, comment, or view the tweeter's profile. Want to pass along news or analysis to your friends? Share a tweet via text message, e-mail, or social networking sites.
Of course, SportCaster also features a week-by-week game schedule and brings you all the latest scores and stats, including game recaps, box scores, standings, and rankings. When you tap on a score, you call up a screen that contains this info, but it also has a conversation button so you can see what people are saying about the action in real time. It's like watching the game with a group of very passionate, knowledgeable people--a social scoreboard, as it were. If you love sports and sports talk, once you go SportCaster, you'll never go back.
Note: SportCaster Pro launches with support for both pro and college football. Future versions will include pro and college basketball, hockey, and baseball as those sports begin their upcoming seasons.
