We are a nation of sports lovers in the UK and so today with this is mind our Best of British series of articles continues with a look at the LiveSport.co.uk app with its promise of ‘Never miss a match again’.
This smartphone app is really simple to use, even for sports mad mum or dad! Once opened the app introduces you to the All Sports Today page.
Navigating around from here is very straightforward, just scroll up or down the page or tap the menu icon in the top right of the screen to visit other pages included within the app. You can swipe your finger from left to right across the top of the screen to refresh the results.
The All Sports Today page lists clearly all of the live sporting events on TV across the major UK broadcasters as well as sports available for live streaming over your internet connection.
There is something to peak anyone’s interests with over 35 different sports from football to Formula 1 and from horse riding to cricket or golf.
As you discover sporting events within the app you can tap them to view which TV channels are covering the event. You will also notice blue and white + symbols next to each TV listing and a quick tap on one of these will add it into your schedule and you will get a calendar reminder pop up before the event begins.
The menu of the app will allow you to navigate to several new pages. These include an extended All Sports This Week page and a competition page to win prizes such as signed shirts, Premier League match day tickets, cash, darts and Six Nations tickets.
You will also find the settings within in this menu and I personally found these very useful. Aside from selecting a time zone, useful if you are on holiday, you can choose which sports to display and which TV channels you have access to.
If you love sports you will undoubtedly want this app. The real genius of this app is its simplicity making it far easier to find the sporting events you might want to watch compared to a delving into a TV guide.
If you want to watch sports on your mobile phone then why not consider a phablet deal with a device similar to the HTC One Max. Phablets have larger screens compared to smartphones yet are more compact that tablet PCs.
