With just two days until one of the biggest sporting events of the year, Sports Illustrated has taken advantage of the lead-up to Super Bowl 50 to introduce a new app on the App Store.
Follow live action
While there are a ton of other similar sports apps available, a few features definitely make Sports Illustrated unique.
First up, sports fans can pin the scoreboard of a game to the app’s home screen so they can follow the live action while taking a look at other stories and headlines. Like the YouTube app, the picture-in-picture functionality allows you to watch clips while being able to explore the sports world simultaneously.
Another great feature is that you can personalize the app by selecting to be notified with news from your favorite teams or specific Sports Illustrated writers.
The 10 Spot also features a curated section that highlights some of the best from the popular sports magazine.
Finally, you can also be alerted on the latest scores from the world NFL, MLB, NBA, NHL, college basketball and football.
Designed for the iPhone/iPod touch, Sports Illustrated can be downloaded now on the App Store for free. While I usually depend on the great ESPN app, there’s definitely a lot of great features that any sports fan should take a look at.
And speaking of the big game, take a look at our recent roundup of seven other great apps to help you get ready for Super Bowl 50.
Super Bowl 50 kicks off at 6:30 p.m. EST this Sunday, Feb. 7 from the home of the San Francisco 49ers. It will air live on CBS. You can also stream it for free on the Apple TV.
