Sports Live HD is a sports tracking application released by More Solutions, LLC.
“Enjoy the award-winning Sports Live! app on the big screen of your HP TouchPad! Sports Live! HD brings you a full scoreboard, real-time ticker and instant alerts for your favorite sports teams in 12 professional and college sports.”
This application is designed to allow you to track your favorite sports and teams and see live score information as the match is going on.
You are able to select from mostly US based sports, but International Football and Premier League football (English and Scottish) are covered.
If you are a fan of American Football, Basketball, Baseball and Hockey will find this application a bit more useful.
You can add the sports you are interested in and also set teams as your favorites.
As far and the information returned it is a little limited. You can see the live scores or the upcoming games for that day only (no back history here) and then the scores will update as the game progresses. You can also see a feed from twitter when people tweeting about the match, however, this is based of the hash tags, so often totally off topic depending on the hash tag of your teams, our seeing dozens of GOAL! tweets.
There is a live chat option to, but this needs a seperate account.
Option wise, you can set up a lot of refresh options and alerts.
The user interface is clean and easy to use.
On the upside:
- Clean user interface.
- Good use of the notifications if you want to minimise during matches.
On the downside:
- Lack of UK based sports.
- Twitter feed is near useless.
- Nothing you could not get from a good sports website.
Overall, this a reasonable sports application, but really looks like it will be fair more useful in the U.S. market. There is not enough options for UK sport, and I personally feel that the BBC website offers a lot more information than this application. The notification side is useful, as long as you remember a match is on.
