Last June, Yahoo! Sportacular was updated to version 4.0 with universal support and new features. At the same time, it was renamed Yahoo! Sports. Now, the app’s ad-free pro version, Yahoo! Sportacular Pro, has also been updated with universal support and new features, but not with a name change.
Yahoo! Sportacular Pro remains to be called Yahoo! Sportacular Pro. But the originally iPhone- and iPod touch-only app has now gained native iPad compatibility along with new features, apparently including those that Yahoo! Sports has been updated with in the interim:
- Redesigned with more content, stats and iPad support.
- Sign in to Yahoo to save your favorite teams across web and mobile devices.
- View your Yahoo Fantasy Football player stats on game details.
- New breaking news alerts for the most important stories in sports.
- iOS 7 fixes for favorites, alerts and picks. You may need to reset your favorites if you have already upgraded to iOS 7.
Note that Facebook chat is no longer supported in Yahoo! Sportacular Pro, as in its free, ad-supported edition.
The new version of Yahoo! Sportacular Pro is available now in the App Store for $4.99, up from its previous price of $1.99. The app is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad running iOS 6.0 or later.
Yahoo! Sportacular Pro is included in AppAdvice’s Apps For The Sports Fan AppList.
