    Anyone using the Scorecenter widget noticing it murders the battery life?

    I used to be able to get thru a full day on Incredible with moderate use, live wallpaper running, along with several other things.. I been taking off things one by one that I recently added to see why battery life was so bad all of a sudden. Seems I may have pinpointed it at Scorecenter widget.... Anyone have same experience? Maybe its back to SportsTap. :cool:

    Yes, it does destroy the battery life. It was recently removed from my phone.

    For the past week or so, I've actually had both ESPN and Scoretap widgets running and haven't seen much of a battery hit.

    I wish ESPN would add notifications and then I could get rid of Sportstap. The espn widget does update quicker than the sportstap one, so that's why I keep it.

    i haven't noticed any difference since running it. i agree, it needs notifications. i was using both google scoreboard and this, but then i got rid of scoreboard cuz the widget sucked. but no, my battery life hasn't changed (maybe slightly if anything) running it.

    I haven't had battery problems with the ESPN widget either. I wish ScoreCenter and ScoreMobile could have a baby, I like ScoreCenter's widget but I prefer ScoreMobile's interface.

    I think that the score mobile widget blows all of the others away.

    Anyone know of an app that will notify me of final score w/o having a widget running? It can actually email me too but I wouldn't imagine this is possible w/o something running in the background... ie a widget. Maybe there's an online program that's free that will email me or something.

    I still can't figure out if/why sportstap needs the widget running to get notifications. I thought I recalled trying it last week without the widget and I still got notifications, but I don't think it was reliable.

    The notification settings are in the main program. Seems like it could still run as a service and notify you of events.

    Sent my Inc back today, so I'm not on Android at the moment, so I can't re-test.

    I had notifications enabled and when I deleted the widget (I was deleting LOTs of stuff in the spirit of seeing how much of a drain it all was on my battery) I no longer got updates. Put the widget back on a homepage and I got notifications. It was pretty conclusive for me anyway.

    i just downloaded the Yahoo Sportacular live scores app... looks like it will give you an updated for all of the following:

    Game Start
    Game End
    Score Change
    Inning Change
    Every 3 Innings
    Extra Innings

    This is obviously for baseball but imagine it has notifications for all sports...

    i currently have the sportscenter app but am looking for something new

    I'm unsure which app has the best sports widgets, but for the actual app, ScoreMobile is the best.

    Yeah I like ScoreMobile, it's perfectly laid out and gives me everything I need in a scores app. I just wish they'd reskin it or something to get it looking as crisp as it runs.

    The official ESPN app was horrible when I tried using it.

    I never had any luck with the Scorecenter widget. It euither updates way slowly, or not at all.

    I prefer Yahoo Sportacular Livescores. It's very good with scores and standings. Plus you can set all you favorite teams and what alerts you wants. For example for baseball, you can set alerts for finnal scores, game start, game end, score change, inning change, every 3 innings and/or extra innings.
