theScore nets $16 million in funding as it expands its sports app empire

    I applaud them for their tremendous effort in creating such an amazingly detailed sports app and coverage that no other sports app offers or have ever offered. I’ve been using it since I got my first smartphone (iPhone 3G) back in 2008 and have never been disappointed with it once. Very reliable, detailed, and unprecedented in game coverage. As a long time sports junkie, it’s easily a must have app for all sports fans.

    It’s the best Sports app on all the platforms they support. I wish they would update their Windows Phone version – it’s far behind.

      I agree. I’m guessing that is why the Windows Store was left out of the main article. I was really excited when I first downloaded it, however, upon using it, it felt very “bare bones.” As you were saying, I too hope they are in the process of updating it. ESPN continues to outshine it. Their baseball section on ESPN is very intuitive. On a slightly different note, I’m curious as to why, since my 920 is exclusive to Rogers, Windows users don’t have the SportsNet app available. You would think that would be an easy decision to make.

    With all that money, I hope the can hire some developers who can make the app work in landscape and allow me to use a custom notification sound.

      I’m sure alleviating the terrible inconvenience of portrait view and the inability to have a baseball crack sound when the Bluejays score a run are among the top priorities at the moment.

      Try using the app on a Transformer tablet in the keyboard dock.

    Very good sports app. But uninstalled because one day it required a manual update because the permissions changed. The permission? Allow the app to send emails without the owners knowledge. A sports app doesn’t require this permission. Do what you do best and provide sports scores, don’t send emails from my device for whatever reason without me knowing about it.

    the app is really good.

    It’s a good app but notifications aren’t always on time and sometimes you never even get them! Coming from a guy who uses Android and is with Rogers. Love theScore though!
