SportingNews Pro Football Review: Football News Whenever You Want It

  • Generic Company Place Holder Sporting News Pro Football

Zumobi Network's SportingNews Pro Football is a full-featured football news app. Its interface is simple and nicely laid out, and it manages to pack a lot of information onto each screen without overwhelming you.

When you first run the app, you'll want to head over to the Settings menu: There you can specify your favorite teams (they're listed by conference), turn on news notifications, learn about SportingNews and the Zumobi Network, or send feedback.

Once you select your favorite teams, you'll get information about their win/loss records and their latest games on the main screen. If you have picked more than one team, you can tap an arrow button to scroll through your teams. To get more details on a team, just tap its info box to go directly to its "home page." Each team's home page features the team's schedule, roster, news, and Twitter feed.

SportingNews Pro Football's main screen offers more than just quick stats on your top teams, though: It also displays the latest league news, and it has buttons for scores, standings, teams, stats, leaders (a weekly stats leaderboard), and Twitter (which brings up the SportingNews NFL Twitter feed).

It sounds pretty straightforward, and it is. This is one of the better football apps I've seen, because all of the information is quick and easy to find. Plus, it's nice to be able to keep up on Twitter news as well as regular news. One caveat: The app is a little slow, and it has a lot of ads. But if you're looking for a good football app, look no further.
