ESPN launches new SportsCenter app for real-time, personalized news & scores

ESPN is launching a new app today called ESPN SportsCenter, which actually replaces the old ScoreCenter app with a redesign and all new features. The app does much of what the old app did, offering real-time updates on scores for the biggest sporting events of the day, as well as breaking news, analysis, notifications, and more. You’ll also be able to add your favorite teams to customize your experience and the new app introduces a new Favorites feature for quickly accessing news and scores for the teams you want to keep up with most often.

The new ESPN SportsCenter app also includes a new Clubhouses feature that includes all content for every team and league, an Inbox for getting personalized content such as news and alerts, and enhanced game pages that feature “New native sharing and one-click GameCast access.” Also new in the app is ESPN Now, a feature that lets users get real-time scores and updates from social networks.

In addition, the new SportsCenter app has been given a number of enhancements to search and overall performance.

The free ESPN SportsCenter app is available for iPhone now.

    Won’t use it because I don’t like ads and there’s no way to opt out of ads in ESPN’s sport apps. I use Yahoo sports that I purchased for a nice ad free experience.

    I’m very disappointed with the update. Really liked “ScoreCenter” better than this. Much more organized, sleeker look than this slow app. Ads are annoying as well. I use Yahoo! Sports now. A free app that has a lot of great features.
