    I'm looking for a good NFL app. News, scores, the works. I had Sprint before I got my 3GS and man, that NFL app was EXCELLENT. It had live scoring, constant news updates, you could get text alerts during your favorite teams games, you could watch "play by play" where there'd be a field and the drive summary would update live after every play, you could even watch NFL Network live on your phone. It's the ONE thing I miss about Sprint (well that and the full bars of service no matter where I go, but that's off topic lol).

    I know the NFL has a deal with Sprint, hence no official NFL app, but there's got to be one out there that does similar things. I want live scoring and it would be AWESOME to have one of those live updating drive summary charts (you know, that shows the field with the ball moving down it and there is a colored line showing the length of each play). I've tried so many sports apps (Sports Tap, ESPN Score Center, FOX Sports, Sportacular, etc) but really I just want an NFL-only one. I'm hardcore into football (NCAA and NFL) and don't really follow any other sports so I don't need an app that covers all of 'em, just one that focuses on football. I see a lot of paid ones, which is fine, but I'd like some feedback on 'em before just buying a bunch.

    There are so many true football apps that meet your needs. The only issue they are probably not what you are looking for unless you know who Man Utd or Chelsea are. :)

    Sportacular has push atm but ESPN's free Scorecenter is the best of the bunch and is adding Push in September for football season.

    I use ESPN score center to get live updates on scoring, CBS Sports for scores/news/game updates, and MyFan Teams to manage my Yahoo fantasy teams.

    There are a ton of apps out there that do what you need, just search the App Store
