Why I Cant Give Up Bleacher Report…

There are many sports apps around the Web and in apps. However, the one that is my favorite sports app is Bleacher Report. Bleacher Report is the one app that I enjoy the most because of the many updates almost every minute or two. You select the teams that you want to follow and throughout the day, it will give you updates on them and them only. lets be honest, you only care really about the trades and roster moves from your favorite teams. Unless it doesn’t involve our favorite teams, we typically don’t care much for it. This is why I love Bleacher Report. No other information comes across other than news with my favorite teams from various sports, and it lets me know when new things in the world of sports are trending. It is the perfect combination of team news and entertainment.

 

ESPN App VS. Yahoo! Sports App

In the world of sports, avid sport fans are always looking for the right app that’s going to give them what they want, when they want it.  Whether that be scores, stories, or live play…they all want it.  However their biggest problem is finding the App that will give them what they desire.

Often times, when you look at an avid sports fan’s phone, you will find several different sports apps.  Meaning they have gone down the journey of finding the app that they love the most.  The two most common: ESPN and Yahoo! Sports.

In an article published by sporttechie.com, hey provide a short review on the new ESPN as well as the Yahoo! Sports app.  They also for some reason talk about some insignificant app called theScore.  Compared to the other two, it’s like a kitten taking on a full grown Lion.  There’s no fair comparison that would even make theScore look even somewhat good.  So I’m not quite sure why they included that in their article.

However, the rest of their article was really good.  The main bulk of the article talks about the new features of the ESPN app.  Viewing the rest of the site though, I get a sense that the site is somewhat favorable to ESPN, so the article may be a little biased, but still provides accurate information.

It also goes into detail about the Yahoo! Sports app and briefly describes its best features and how it compares to the ESPN app.  Overall though, the article concludes that the ESPN app is by far the best app for an sport fan.

For me, I use both the Yahoo! Sports and ESPN app.  I like how I can get the scores that I want fast on the Yahoo! app and get the stories I want.  And on the ESPN app I like how I can get instant video as well as scores.  So there is a balance between the two that I not only enjoy, but use everyday.  Overall, I love both.  And will continue to use both.  I have ended my journey on finding the best sports apps, and now I’m enjoying the experience.

Giving up Share

Sharing is a large part of of social media and most social media sites have this ability. But that’s not the extent of them. Many sites from newspapers, shopping, news, blogs, etc., have this function built into their sites. It’d be quite difficult to stop using it. It is a large part of what I do. I see an article, picture, video, product I like and I’ll share it to people and give a little blurb about it. It also propels stories into the spotlight.

A lot of what goes on around the world is online now. Sports is everywhere; people live tweet games. They tweet stats, highlights, images, opinions, plays, and just really get into it with other people watching that game. If someone tweets something that is great, people will share that. That’s not just limited to sports, there are people who write about what’s going on in the world and people will read and share it, if it’s liked.

Being able to share something is an incredible feature. It allows people to really share information on the web without having to tell people where to go and what it’s about. Just a simple click and an article, video, image is shared to all of your friends that are following you. It not only gives your followers and friends that information you are sharing, but it also gives credit to whomever was the original author of said media.
