    Here's their twitter account: twitter.com/scorecenter
    And here's ESPN's contact site: https://r.espn.go.com/members/contact/index

    Start bombarding them with requests for an Android Scorecenter. Throw in a few online articles about how fast Android is growing. Last time they commented on Android a couple months ago, they said they were "evaluating" the Android platform. Give them something to evaluate. NFL is coming on Android (at least Verizon Androids), so that's got to get their attention.

    I'm surprised they haven't devloped anything yet.

    I'm using Sports Tap as of right now, but Scorecenter would be much better.

    Wont happen any time soon. ESPN is pissed at google for not removing apps with the ESPN name in them fast enough (developed by 3rd parties)...

    Yes, I've seen that article. It was months ago. Besides that's no excuse. Countless NFL imitators didn't stop them from making their own app.

    When that article was written is irrelevant in this case. Until ESPN "forgives" Google for not removing fakes (There are currently 5 or more in the Market), they will not make the app.

    Using the NFL as an example is not accurate. That app is for Verizon only, and Verizon paid HEAVILY to have that app and access to NFL content. With the money the NFL where payed, they could care less if there are copycats I would imagine, as long as they didn't use NFL properties.

    Ahh, that's pretty cool. I hope it is accurate (with the whole 2.1 debacle on Droid, I'm accustomed to not believing a guy on a forum that has a friend that says something, but here's hoping!)

    I can listen to my local ESPN station using DroidCumulus, which gets cumulus stations. CherryRPlayer will get CBS stations, and iheartradio for clearchannel stations. Someone should tip that guy off. i dont want to register for another forum to do it

    For those who have not emailed or have not gotten a reply, here's a more direct way to contact them:

    support@espncustomercare.com

    That's the address where the replies come from. This way, you can skip filling out the form from the website I showed you.

    On the other hand, it might be read faster if you did go through the contact site and specified the right categories (Category: ESPN Mobile, Item: Mobile Applications, Topic: iPhone - ScoreCenter) so they know right away what you're asking about.
