BBC Worldwide Launches BBC Sport App For International Fans
The official BBC Sport app is the sports fan’s guide to live sport news, stats, fixtures and results, curated by the BBC’s team of sport journalists.
From Mashable:[quote] The free app for iPhone and iPod Touch devices — an Android version will follow soon — includes a range of BBC Sport content such as live scores, stats, schedules, standings and commentary. A customizable menu lets users highlight the sports that most interest them.
Most fans will likely use the app to follow English Premier League soccer and other major international leagues, but the app also focuses on covering Formula One auto racing, rugby, golf, cricket and tennis. Major events of international relevance in other sports will be covered as well.
“More and more, we’re finding that fans want to follow results on their mobile devices while they’re on the move,” James Montgomery, controller of digital and technology for BBC Global News, told Mashable in an interview. “That’s the direction things are heading in, and this gives us another way to be competitive.”[/quote]
