    I started requesting new apps for us sports junkies. I encourage you all to do it and maybe we will be surprised!
    Here is the response I just received from the Sporting news:

    Message: How about an app for all of us with the Motorola Droid running
    android 2.0? Please!!!!!!

    Dear Member,

    We are looking into it and hopefully will have one soon.


    Thanks,

    Ya know, I bought my Droid Thursday and knew with football Sunday i needed an app to keep track of my fantasy team and was directed to get Sports Tap based on this forum and a few others.....anyways, it was terrible yesterday and I though maybe that's just how this thing is. But I guess alot of people had some issues with it but I was terribly unimpressed using it the first day. Hopefully it gets better as it's highly recommended so maybe it was just an off day? Or like you suggested, that it's getting more popular and was slow yesterday?

    Hope they fix whatever it was because I was on the brink of deleting it.

    Yeah I just saw the update and installed it. Browsed around and it seemed ALOT better, but like others mentioned it could have been because of it being an NFL Sunday. Oh well, will just have to wait until Sunday rolls around again and see it it's better or not.

    What I did see of the app, I did like. Especially for being free.

    On Edit: Does anyone know if they are going to have the MLB At Bat app for the droid? I have an iTouch and absolutely LOVED that app and it was worth ever $10 I paid for it. They added so much as the season went on like vid highlights, home and road audio, full length games LIVE, etc..etc.

    Anyways, I know it's the off season so I assume we won't know anything until next March or so on this but has anyone heard anything of this? I really hope it's not just for the iTouch/iPod but wouldn't be suprised if that were the case.

    I really want an MLB at bat app too.

    Here is a reply from MLB regarding my request for one. I would email them and tell them you are willing to pay for one. I was told there was a beta version available during the World Series but I don't know for sure.

    Hi,

    Thank you for your suggestion. We value your feedback. We are actually
    looking to get that phone up and running soon, but we are not sure on an
    exact date. Please check back soon.

    Regards,

    Caitlin Graham

    Just for my own sake...if I am keeping tabs on various scores in NFL, MLB, NHL or whatever, do any of these sports apps actually out-do internet score sites? If there is a major lag compared to ESPN.com or LiveScore.com then I have no need but if it is rather comparable then I would try either app.

    Of course I could easily test this out myself but I'll take the input of the forum.

    I don't know about sports tap it updates too slow for me. I liked the notifications it allowed but it was too far behind the actual game. My friend was watching the Steelers/Broncos game and he texted me angry about an interception that sports tap didn't tell me about until 4 minutes later, even after I was hitting refresh.

    Live football scores updates pretty fast and is pretty easy to use.
