    SportsTap gives me the info I need in a simple enough package. I've heard the widget can be a battery drain, but I've never used it.

    Sportstap is both free and awesome. This is one of the most complete sports apps with all major sports and some international. One of the nicer features is setting favorite teams which will provide scoring updates during games. It also can use GPS with the Local tap feature to give scores within a specific radius of your location.

    Please come back and tell us where to find Sportsman.

    Are you sure it's an Android app!?

    Stupid auto correct. That was Sportstap with Android's wonderful auto correct. I was just expanding on the previous recommendation. Sorry for the confusion.

    I think the ESPN app is disappointing. I only have it installed to use the widget.

    you mean espn scorecenter? the widget IS the app, thats the point.

    I posted earlier about the ESPN Radio app, seems to have been deleted, and I have no idea why that would be, so i will mention it again... not free, but gives 24\7 espn radio stations from all over the country. FREAKIN SWEET.

    also like phillies news pro, and baseball browser widgets...

    There's more to a sports app for me than just a widget. I like to see scores for other teams around the league as well (which requires me going into the app) and the standings. I find the navigation of the app a bit clumsy.

    I'm not sure you and I are talking about the same app. ESPN Scorecenter, allows you to choose different teams within a bunch of sports, and "arrow" up and down through them. it's easily changed so you could set your teams to follow based on the days event schedule and just arrow up and down all day... i'm not sure if i got it in the market, or from appbrain market, i'll try to find out for you.

    AND ESPN RADIO FOR ANDROID IS THE BEST 4.99 I EVER SPENT

    OK, It's in the market. http://androidapplications.com/61738-espn-scorecenter run the app first. add teams, then install the widget. any time you want, you can run the app again, and add and remove teams. there is up to the minute score updates right in the widget and you just arrow through them.

    at the bottom of this screen... I have all my philly teams, and because it's baseball season, the whole NL east for obvious reasons, in "my teams" so whenever they play, i can tab through for scores, and records. and i can launch from the widget to a pitch by pitch thats just like mlb "at bat"
    It's a VERY inclusive app.

    We are. The widget is just for favorite teams. I have to go into the app to see the rest of the teams which is why the app matters to me. My post was in response to what you said about just the widget being the app lol unless I misunderstood you.

    I'm surprised the developer left out standings.

    standings are 1 touch away... the app has tons of stuff, the widget gives you instant current info, not sure what you are after. seems like the best of both worlds to me.

    ESPN Radio for android is the best 4.99 i ever spent!

    Fair enough, I just found the standings. I'm just not a fan of the app. I prefer ScoreMobile's layout and functionality. Personal preference.

    I was primarily in it for the widgets when I wrote this review.
    That being said, I agree with the poster about primarily using ESPN for the widget.

    I think SportsTap has the most features, ScoreMobile has a nice design, and Google Scoreboard, well, it has Google in it?

    If only we could combine all of these into one...
