The Bleacher Sports app for your iOS and Android mobile brings you all the latest sports news, headlines, rumors, stats, fixtures, schedules, predictions and transfer gossip from all your favorite leagues and franchises right to your device.
The tool’s UI is probably is one of the leading designs I’ve seen so far on any sports app. The design is intuitive and seamless, with well-placed tabs and icons at the bottom to guide you through the various options such as Home, Fire, Scores and My Teams. You can move through the different screens and options easily, although some of the icons are a bit tiny for a device with a small screen. Breaking up the app into convenient parts and the Fire option, which brings fast video playing on auto-loop, help the UI design. The entire build of the app which incorporates different sections into the main app makes it easy for anyone to navigate the app. I give it a 4.5/5.
Both the iOS and the Android app afford you a variety of options such as Live Scores, features, stats, and schedules across various franchises in the US and across the world such as the NFL, MLB, NBA, NASCAR and the Premier League, Bundesliga among others. You can access video highlights and through the Fire tab, play videos on auto-loop. You can also check out curated content from various leagues, notifications and the latest news, all on the go. If you are a betting person, make use of the Predictions feature.
However, you won’t be able to live stream games, only highlights. The app offers regular updates, and with the latest version, you can share your alerts with your friends, access a new alerts tab with videos, GIFs and a new Schedules and Standings option for various franchises.
The app is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch and iPad running iOS 10.0 or later. It is also an app for all Android devices running OS version 4.0 or later, though this may vary with the actual device. The features rate at a 4/5 for me.
Convenience and Performance
The Bleacher iOS and Google Android app definitely are convenient, and so far I’ve experienced only minor issues with this app. I like the notifications on highlights especially when I have missed a game. There are also awesome articles and commentaries, and personally, I enjoy using this app. The only error which I frequently encountered with my APK was when I tried to open stories, and the app refused to work, but that was addressed. I’ll rate the app’s usability at a 4/5.
Both the APK for Android and the iOS version are free to get, and there are no in-app purchases.
- Easy-to-use interface;
- Compatible with both of the OS: Android and iOS;
- The app is free and without purchases;
- You can’t live stream games, only highlights;
- Sometimes lags.
I’d recommend this app to anyone, and I prefer it for all my highlights and game schedules. The Google play app for Bleacher Report looks better on large tablets, while the iOS app looks great on both iPhones and iPads. You will enjoy using this app.
