Android App Review: NBC Sports Talk

Best Real-time Sports

NBC Sports Talk provides up-to-date reporting on numerous sports including NFL, NBA, Soccer and Golf.

The homepage is categorized by specific sport with articles displayed as thumbnails accompanied by a partial headline.

Clicking on a thumbnail opens the article and the user can scroll through related content with the swipe of their thumb.  Articles are relatively short with some offering video content as well as links to publications related to the topic.

Users can customize the the order of sports displayed on the homepage.  Each category shows when the content was last updated.  Social features allow users to follow writers as well as share articles through multiple social channels.

 

Pros
Customizable Order of Sports
Solid, timely and topical information
Ideal for phone/tablet reading

Cons
Occasionally crashes
Can’t run video in some stories (due to NFL/MLB/NHL restrictions) in mobile

 

AG Bottom Line
If you are a sports fanatic, then you will most definitely use this app.  The news is current and constantly updated. The thumbnail design is great for finding exactly what you want to read and the short articles make it perfect for those that are constantly on the go.

We definitely recommend this app.
