5 Apps That Every Sports Dad Needs In Their Lives

Just a few years back the number of smartphone users reached 2.1 billion. Interestingly, the rate of ownership will have more than doubled by the end of this year, at which time an estimated five billion will people will own a handset across the globe. 

The growth and sophistication of mobile technology has also driven the app industry, which now offers a huge range of free and paid platforms and games across a vast array of different genres. 

The number of available reputable online betting websites and apps, particularly in the U.S., is growing at an exponential rate as state laws relating to wagering online change. However, to accompany those wagering apps, here are some that every sports dad should have:

 1. ESPN 

We start with the most popular and updated sports app across both Android and iOS, which covers a huge range of mainstream disciplines. 

The ESPN app brings real-time news and updates to users nationwide, including everything from live scores and streams to cutting-edge analysis and betting tips. 

This app is popular amongst the vast majority of sports fans in the States, whilst in addition to the free version there’s also a paid monthly subscription service that allows a wider range of features. 

2. CBS Sports 

Just like ESPN, CBS Sports also provide real-time insight into live scores, statistics and analysis. 

It’s also possible to personalise the notifications that you receive through this application, whilst there’s a live streaming options for sports like basketball and golf. 

Once again, there’s also a paid subscription service available here, which offer users access to on-demand game highlights, a wider range of live streams and additional broadcasts.

3. Yahoo Sports 

Next on our list is Yahoo Sports, which is a fee app that delivers all of the essential sports news in real-time to users. 

These updates include the very latest scores, statistics and breaking developments, whilst there’s also a huge range of stories written by sports analysts and leading pundits. 

This platform offers the latest news from the worlds of NHL, NCAA, MLS and the NFL, whilst it has recently branched out to include updates from international soccer tournaments such the Premier League, La Liga and the Champions League. 

4. theScore 

Next up is theScore app, which is an extremely popular app and one that’s renowned for delivering instant game updates to users.  

This app arguably outshines its users in this respect, whilst it also boasts an event calendar that allows players to keep track of upcoming games and the very latest in-game statistics. 

The iOS and Android app also provides detailed game reports, which breakdown specific statistics for each play and individual teams. 

5. Eurosport 

We close with the Eurosport app, which has an incredibly user-friendly interface and one that provides a wealth of information across international sports and leagues. 

Interestingly, the Eurosport app also delivers the very latest sports calendar and live scores to users, with these updated in real-time and with tremendous accuracy.                                      

At present, the site and app both publish an average of 150 objective and informative news articles every single day, which provides a source of knowledge that enables you do everything from select your fantasy sports team to make informed betting selections. 

It’s a great way to have some fun with your son or daughter too, bonding over fantasy sports, and since the time of time (well at least sport) it’s always been part of the fatherhood biz.
