SofaScore is a handy and well developed little app, packed with useful features. The thing that grabbed me about the app first was the range of sports covered: Football, Basketball, American Football, Baseball, Ice Hockey, Tennis, Handball, Formula 1 times, Rugby and Volleyball which, by all accounts, is quite a comprehensive list of the world’s most popular sports.
I think the major focus of the app is Football (Soccer) and it incorporates a wide number of European leagues from England, Italy, Germany, Spain, France, Denmark, Turkey, plus cup competitions and international tournaments including the London 2012 Olympics. In total there are more than 500 football leagues you can follow. You then have 74 Basketball leagues you can follow and 77 Ice Hockey Leagues.
If you’re unable to watch a game, you can easily follow many on your Android device. The app additionally features alerts and notifications so, even if you’e busy doing something else, you can discreetly keep up to date with your favourite teams score. Many leagues also feature a live commentary service to keep up to date with every kick.
Another element I liked was the calendar feature which lets you flick through dates to see what games are being played. If you know your team has an important game coming up you can see when it’s on and prevent yourself from double-booking that time!
I think the app could be improved with the inclusion of a widget, perhaps one that shows live scores from your favourite league. Currently there’s no means to favourite teams or even leagues, so this inclusion would undoubtedly improve the app. I also have some doubts over the compatibility the app has with certain devices. I have a low, medium and top range Android device and the Google Play Store suggested it wasn’t compatible with any of them. I was able to install the APK onto my HTC One X indirectly and it worked absolutely fine, but this isn’t going to be an option for most users.

For keeping up to date with your favourite sports teams live scores, it’s hugely comprehensive and certainly covers more bases than apps such as LiveScore. I think a widget would make it a little more useful, but opening the app and finding your teams score isn’t too cumbersome as it is. Even if you have quite diverse sporting interests, there’s lots packed into this handy app.
Ease of Use:
The app is extremely easy to use and navigate. There are large tabs at the bottom of the screen and these take you from live scores, calendar mode, favourites matches and sport select. You can also search from the menu button.
This might depend on the time of the year your favourite sport is in action. The new season of my own favourite; football, doesn’t start for a few weeks, so I’m looking forward to using the app when I really need it.
The interface is good, not amazing, but looks nice. I think the design has led the app to be very user-friendly rather than look incredible. It certainly doesn’t look bad, just perhaps not as polished as some apps we’ve seen in the Google Play Store.
