    I have noticed that every sports app is terrible. The biggest problem with all the sports apps is it seems like every update is so far behind. I have tried scoreboard, sportstap, live football scores. I just am starting to think there is an issue with the OS not allowing the widgets to update.

    More likely the coding of the apps.

    The apps must be relying on relaying the information from another source. Since the apps are all 3rd party there will always be a lag in some form.

    I haven't tried any myself, but as you can see some endorse various sports apps in here and others do not. I still find myself going to the actual websites because if I am checking I need it to be accurate to the point. ESPN.com/Covers.com/Cbs.Sportsline.com/Livescore.com

    LiveScore.com is the best for soccer/tennis that you'll find on the Internet.

    I wish ESPN would, the one that iPhone has is awesome!

    Also, I use sportstap myself, and have never had any problems with it.

    Okay, now that you mention it, I did have a ***** of a time last night. I even checked my notifications when they were playing. I use it for the Celtics mainly, and that seems to work perfect for me. Football works too. I don't know what it is with baseball.

    I use sportstap as well. I like that you can put your favorites in there... but as others have said, its WAY laggy. Updates seem totally random. I find myself refreshing constantly....

    The Duke/WV game on Saturday still showed no score, at halftime. I kept refreshing, reinstalled it, no go. That's unacceptable. The problem is, I don't think there is a better app right now.

    I have a couple shortcuts on my home screen to the various parts of the ESPN site that I need. Works OK.

    I haven't really noticed much lag w/ sportstap. Or maybe I'm just so accustomed to these things taking forever sometimes that I don't think it's bad? Conditioned to accept mediocrity? :-(

    btw on my first STi (2010)... last car was a built 2003 Bugeye :-D yay for subies!
