Let me tell you why it gets 5 bars.
Less popular sports (NHL, MLS, dare I say PGA, and lets not forget German Bundesliga) and more obscure popular sports teams. Plop that on top of your main stream and expected info (NFL, NBA, etc.).
As a for instance, Old Dominion University (ODU) is starting a football program this year. This means they don't even belong a conference this year. On top of that, they won't be in a Division-1A (or BCS, or FBS) conference when they get out of this year - they are looking for Division-1AA (or FCS, or D-1AA). It's hard to find D-1AA scores anywhere, let alone a school that isn't even in a division. Yet this app files that under 'Independents 1-AA'. Got an app that gives you real time info for those games for free in a format this is easily followed, and allows you to see play by play and interactive chat, and a feature to see the user picks?! I thought not!
Better still is the ability to set-up push-alerts. Not to be harping on American football, but that is the only aspect in which I've used these alerts so far. You can receive push alerts for pre-game, game start, game end, score changes, and end of quarters to keep you informed of scores! That's mighty handy when I am busy elsewhere on a weekend or even watching another game.
I haven't scraped the surface mainly because I don't have the time - but there is a Fantasy Football tab under options, individual player updates, ability to create a profile, ability to chat within a specific game with other users, and so on...
If you are looking for an easy to use sports app with plenty of features, I say give this one a try.
*Why it shouldn't get 5 bars - Football is played primarily on the weekends, and I believe with all the concurrent games and users, this bogs the servers down. The app is supposed to auto-update every 30 seconds, but it can be frustrating minutes between updates during these peak periods. For me, the capabilities still outweigh these delays, and I can't mark it down for that!
