It also covers almost every sport present across the globe, from football and basketball to horse racing and tennis.

The ESPN app is particularly detailed, as it utilises a huge database to stream live scores and the very latest highlights to its users. All of the world’s major leagues and tournaments are featured too, from the NFL and the Premier League to global competitions such as the FIFA World Cup.

Available to download on both iOS and the Google Play store, the ESPN app also features and exceptional news feed that keeps you informed whilst on the move.

CBS Sports

Next up is CBS Sports, which is not as well-known as ESPN but still offers a constant stream of information to its user base.

Arguably, this app offers access to the fastest scores and news updates, whilst it also issues real-time Tweets in the form of push notifications through the platform.

CBS Sports also stream live action from an array of different sports, whilst video highlights are also available and regularly updated.

The LiveScore app is one for fans of detail, as it provides real-time updates that include everything from the latest goal scorers to any yellow cards that are issued.

As you can probably tell, this app largely focuses on football and provides in-depth coverage of various global tournaments. Other sports are featured too, however, so there should be something to keep everyone interested over time.

To get the best out of the app, simply tap the star icon present in front of any match on the feed. 

This will provide you with access to the latest live notifications and real-time updates from the related league, whilst you’ll be able to review team news and the latest line-ups ahead of time.
