Top Android App: ESPN ScoreCenter
ESPN is the hands-down leader in all sports coverage. So finally, finally, ESPN ScoreCenter has arrived as an official app. (Note: This app is Android 2.0+ only)
- Version: 1.0.2
- Size: 598KB

With this speedy app, you definitely won’t have an excuse to miss any goal, touchdown, or home run. Being an ESPN product, you’ll have the widest sports coverage that is available on Android.
- Auto Racing
- Ice Hockey
- Water Polo
When you first download ScoreCenter, you’ll want to go into the preferences (from the Menu or the red arrow tray box just above the ticker) and choose your favorite teams. Next, choose the sports and leagues that you are interested in following. These crucial customizations really give this app a personalized feel that will show you only the information you care about. Your choices will be added as new panels, along with the day’s Top Events.
The ESPN ticker scrolling across the bottom of the app really tops off the app and validates the official ESPN feel. It’s almost like you’re watching a mini TV.
If you’re looking to follow the play-by-play or read up on the recap and final stats, clicking the game in the scorecard will take you to the Mobile Web version of ESPN. Since this app is only available for 2.0+ devices, this should be a fairly quick transition.
