Other Comments

Forget ESPN score center as that app drove me nuts and FOX Sports was difficult to navigate. This app does everything a blind sports fan can ask for, and no, I do not own the company, was just really frustrated with all of the incompatible sports apps.

Thanks so much for this post. I've been searching for months for a great sports app. This one actually works! So disappointed with ESPN, Fox, CBS, and so many others that do not work at all with voice over.

So, when I try to select the alert type I want, it doesn't say whether or not I've selected it. How do I know whether an alert type I've double-tapped on is actually selected? Does it alternately select and deselect whenever you double-tap on it? (I've double-tapped on the same alert type several times, so I'm not sure whether it is now selected or deselected.)

Also, does anyone know what the grey/gold stars listed after each team under "set notifications" do?

Submitted by Misty Dawn on Sunday, October 5, 2014

Another question: At the end of the list where you can select the types of notifications you want to receive, there is something that says "scores every 5 minutes". Is this another option or does this mean that the scores only update every 5 minutes and that the score notifications you thus receive are not instantaneous?

OKI, so, I just re-downloaded this app because it appears that the NFL alerts are no longer working for me on the NFL official app.

I like the most recent update since I last used it, but...

It seems I can no longer find the way to set alert types for my teams. When I click "alerts", it says to go to your team, click it and select a "set alerts" button. However, when I go to a team, I do not see any "set alerts" button? Where is it? How do I set alerts for my teams??

As others have said, I've been waiting for what seems like years to find a truly user friendly sports app. Easy and fun to check scores. Voilà, this one is the best I've seen.

Hello Misty,

First, you will need to turn ON Alerts for a given Team by doing the following:
1. Double Tap the Following tab along the bottom row of Tabs
2. Find the Add button at the top right and double tap on this
3. Swipe to the right until you find the type of Sports you want to follow in this example double tap on NFL Football
4. Swipe right and double tap on each team you want to get an alert from. So if one double tap on the Kansas City Chiefs. Swiping one more time you should hear that the team has been selected.
5. When completed find the Done button at the top right and double tap

Now to change the type of alerts for a followed team. Do the following:
1. Double Tap on the Follow Tab on the bottom row
2. Swipe right and find the Team you are following and double tap on the Team
3. Swipe right until you hear the Selected Follow button and double tap on this

Now you should be able to change the type of alerts for that team.

HTH

Um, your buttons are not like mine...

Most importantly, I have no "follow" button along the bottom.

My tabs are labeled:

1) Games
2) Teams
3) Standings
4) Leaders
5) Alerts
6) Players
7) More

I couldn't even find anything else in the steps that you said that would work either.

So, none of what you said works for me.

Hello Misty,

<Blush>

Oh brother! I messed up on this one Misty. Very sorry about that. Yes, those steps that I gave were for another Sport app that I use. I use something called "The Score" instead and the steps were for that app. So my apology! I don't use the Sport Scores and Alerts any more since I like The Score better.

I hope somebody will be able to help you out.

I am liking this app so far except for one thing. With a sports app I want not only scores but breaking sports news.
Does anyone know how to get to the breaking sports news on this app?
Even though it isn't the most accessible, for example on the ESPN app there is a news tab. Double tapping on this tab brings up the latest sports news.
Is there any way with this app to view breaking news?
I want both scores and news!!
Other than that, this app looks nice.

what a pitty.

Accessible and well done, but unfortunately voiceover is not able to read tennis match results properly.
