    Best Sports App for the iPhone?

    I would say YES, but I have only tried SportsTap....

    I like Sportacular because it gives scores, news and highlights. Not to mention practically every sport and up to the minute highlights.

    Also, I noticed that they give the latest odds prior to game time -- very helpful if you like to gamble on sports. :D

    Thoughts?

    It's not exactly the most attractive app ever made.

    But it works incredibly well. Would you rather look at something pretty that sucks when you need to use it. Or use something easily that isn't super pretty?

    I love it. Comes in great on Sundays when I am at a bar.

    I used SportsTap and switched to Sportacular. I have been using it since.

    Ditto. I love it for the fact that the games I bet on sometimes aren't on TV and I can get an on demand score when I am away from my iMac.

    Same.

    I also tried them both, and eventually deleted SportsTap.

    I also switched from Sports Tap to Sportacular. It's a solid app. On Sundays though I switch to the Pro Football app. It has a self-updating play-by-play with a graphic of the length of the field where you can REALLY follow the game.

    I agree, I also tried that NFL Football application (free), not nearly as good -- doesn't look nice.

    I've been using Sportacular for a little while now. I'm glad they came out with the new 1.2 update where you can track your favorite teams all on one screen no matter which sport.

    Isn't Sportacular mainly just a container for mobileSafari? I use it and like it but there doesn't seem to be much of a native app about it.

    I suppose, but couldn't you say that about the majority of Apps out there?
