Get the power and depth of Yahoo! Sports, one of the leading sources of sports information on the Web, as an app for your Android device. Yahoo! Sportacular is chock full of all the breaking news, scores, schedules, and details that sports fans crave.
This app crams so much into one small package, it's borderline ridiculous. No matter what's going on in the world of sports, you've got the details right at your fingertips, wherever you are.
Sportacular covers the gamut of major sports. NCAA football and basketball? Check. Pro baseball, basketball, football, hockey, and soccer (domestic and foreign)? All accounted for. Golf, tennis, and auto sports? But of course. There are even categories for your self-selected Favorite Teams and Trending Games.
For example: Are you a Major League Baseball fan? Get the latest game scores, both finals and ongoing, with a few touches of the screen. Then go deeper. See the linescore, a scoring summary, winning and losing pitcher, and team records. Tap on the Stats page to see the complete boxscore. There's even a play-by-play accounting of the entire game. This kind of detail is available for just about any sport you can think of in this deep app.
Select the Team option from the menu and it opens up a new screen with tabs for Team Info, News, Schedule, and Settings. Use the latter to create adjustable alerts for your favorite teams: game start, game end, score change, quarter or inning change, etc. You can have the app send you noise or vibrate notifications, so you'll know when to get to a TV, pronto.
Of course, there's always something new coming out of the sports world, whether it's a player injury, trade, team scandal, or just a star's latest weird tweet. Sportacular pulls in links to the top stories from sources such as Fox, ESPN, Yahoo!, The Sporting News, league websites, and more. Share the hot-off-the-presses news and scores with your friends via e-mail or social media.
Sportacular lists the latest odds on each game. But just for fun, there's also an interactive feature available for most games in the app: a live poll of fans regarding who will win that contest. As soon as you make your pick, you'll see what percentage of people agree with you and how many think you're all wet, complete with a U.S. regional breakdown of the voting. There's also a Check-In section where you can make comments about the game and post them to Facebook, so you can trash talk to your heart's content. After all, you know the score.

Love the alerts. My only two suggestions are it would be nice if it had an led alert and a cleaner looking layout. But it is by no means a dealbreaker

Great app. Use it all the time. Love the up to date NCAAFB standings. Also love the alerts feature. Use this and ESPN sportscenter.(Evo)

Good, but not great Small widgets are best score widgets I can find, but they leave the previous score up until the day the team plays their next game. Games in progress also have trouble updating properly (if at all) in the main app (dealbreaker). Please include Trending Games like your iphone app or Top Events like ESPN Scorecenter.

Nice app. Real clean and simple. Would be nice if it showed teams records (w-l) on the main scores page. No weather forecast on the game preview page.

I frigg'n love this app! Any sport nut will! Easy to use and looks great. One change would be to get favorite team news only

Will come back and give 5 stars when there is a widget available that shows ALL sports scores (with a menu on it to jump from each sport) not just favorite teams. Also please add an alert to notify me when ANY game is going into extra innings, overtime or a shootout. Being a subscriber to sports packages on my TV this would be great if I'm watching a show and then get an alert that a game is going into overtime so I can flip the channel and catch a potential great finish! Keep up the great work, thanks!!!!!

Can't find college teams outside of 25. Maybe if we could pic a team to follow that would be nice too. Good app tho moto Droid.

Definitely a superior product. The Only thing you can't do with this app is see team or opponent W/L records easily. Still love it tho.
