For avid sports fans, there is nothing more important than being able to keep up-to-date with all the latest from their favourite teams and sports. Fans will want to know all the rumours and news before anyone else and as soon as it breaks, whilst others will want to know what is happening when there is action being played out on the field with live notifications of goals/touchdowns/home runs etc, as they would with, for example, live streaming with the bet365 app.
There are, of course, a number of apps on the marketplace that allow fans to keep abreast with everything on their mobile and tablet devices, as they push out notifications immediately. However, which are the best five apps for sports fans available at the moment and are considered must-haves?
Here are our top five (in no particular order):
The frequently updated ESPN app brings users the latest and greatest sports news and information around the world. Whether you are looking for the latest scoring information, major news of various teams and leagues, or professional analysis, the ESPN app can meet your requirements. Users can easily customize the list of favourite teams, allowing the app to provide a personalised sports news experience for all franchisees and athletes you care about. Now you can also subscribe to the ESPN+ service, allowing you to stream movies, live performances, and games directly to your device, while also enjoying insider content from ESPN writers.

The Bleacher Report app eschews the generalist practices of other sports news apps in exchange for a laser-like focus on your favourite team or team. Just select your favourites, Team Stream will get relevant real-time notifications from many sources on the Web. You will get scores, stories, pictures and videos about the selected clubs or sporting events. The app also provides the latest sports news from newspapers, blogs, websites and Bleacher Report.
