If you are an avid sports fan like me who always wants to stay as close to the gaming action as possible, then SportCaster could be your perfect companion. Scores, stats and rankings are just for the news. Hardcore sports fans love to ‘live’ their games, players and teams. They always want to ‘be in the game’ and know what’s going through the minds of the players, coaches and fans before, during and after each game. For Android users, SportCaster app combines the best of both worlds: conventional sports coverage complemented with live tweets from players and sports personalities. With SportCaster, you can stay in touch with updated news, scores and standings of your favorite sports (NFL, NCAA Football, Basketball, Hockey and Baseball) and also get an insight of your favorite sports stars in real-time via live tweets.
