    I'm tired of waiting for ESPN Scorecenter for Android (UPDATE: It's here!)

    Here's their twitter account: twitter.com/scorecenter
    And here's ESPN's contact site: https://r.espn.go.com/members/contact/index

    Start bombarding them with requests for an Android Scorecenter. Throw in a few online articles about how fast Android is growing. Last time they commented on Android a couple months ago, they said they were "evaluating" the Android platform. Give them something to evaluate.


    UPDATE: ScoreCenter has landed on Android. dancedroid Told you we could do it.

    Well that may be due to apps being so hard to develop on androids OS. iPhone is a little more simple to develop for because they don't have TONS of different versions of their OS running around.

    Not familiar with ESPN Scorecenter but if you are looking for scores and news have you tried SportsTap?

    Tried and found it to be WAY behind on updates.
    For hockey games, it was at least a period behind. When there's only 3 that's a lil late :icon_eek:

    ^^^^^^^^^ What he said^^^^^^^^^


    Sporttap is the ONLY app with an option for a widget to get updates on your favorite teams!
    That's sad!
    It boggles my mind that NOBODY has come up with something similar!

    SportTap is to inconsistent. It gets stuck refreshing and many times the widget isn't posting the score.
    I have it set up for Red Sox updates every 3rd inning. The game will end and the widget has the
    score from the 3rd inning still.........
    Then it alerts me at 4am with the final!!!!!

    AAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!

    give me somethin..........I'll pay!!!!!! Just get me somethin!!!!!!!

    SERENITY NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    i agree...we need an espn app. i tried sportstap,then deleted it. i have a few widget updating sport apps but i mainly use the espn website for score updated. the mobile version is pretty cool for scores...it's laid out nicely.

    Could you please list the other widget updating apps you have/had tried please?
    I'd like to see if they work better than sportstap.

    Thanks!

    Live Scores works pretty well for me, though it admittedly lacks polish. It was keeping pace pretty good with the ESPN website during March Madness.

    I totally agree. None of the current Android sports apps update enough. I've tried SportsTap, Scoreboard, CBS NFL Football and LiveScores.

    LiveScores isn't bad but, it still doesn't update enough and the UI isn't great.

    Scoreboard would be great since it covers minor league teams too. Unfortunately, its WAY too slow.

    Keep 'em coming guys. Now that the NFL is entering the Android game (at least the Verizon Androids), ESPN won't be able to ignore it much longer.

    I removed "sports tap" as well and find "Live Scores" much, much better. It does lack a widget

    I agree with those who say Live Scores is the best one out there right now, though it's not great. Luckily, between MLB At-Bat and the new NFL Mobile, we'll get nice UIs and quick updating for those sports.

    ESPN Scorecenter would be a nice addition.

    Anybody install the new official NFL app? I did this morning. Seems pretty nice and has a good UI. That being said, if scores aren't added when the season starts, I'm uninstalling that mofo

    I sent off a note to ESPN. I hope they will make an app for that.

    I saw some article (not sure where...could have been a small note or a post even) that said that ESPN didn't want to make an official app for android because of google who refused to remove apps that use the ESPN name in them without a license to do so.
    Can anyone confirm this?
