The ESPN ScoreCenter XL iPad app is an augmented version of the ScoreCenter app for the iPhone and the port was worth it.
Like the ABC app this is one you want to show off to people because it just looks so good.
?The big difference between new and old versions of the app are the robust new features. Spots Center offers Live play-by-play, game highlights, stat summaries, box scores, and league standings. All have been enhanced for the iPad‚Äôs screen size and user interface.
You can even go back to a game after it‚Äôs played and still read the play-by-play and commentary.
The app has two sections, myTeams and Top Events, you choose in settings which category you want the app to open with. Both can stream live video, news and highlights. Video is where this app really stands out of course, due to the iPads larger screen. You can choose to watch it PnP or enlarge to full screen.
This is a great app, both for the sports fanatic and the casual fan, but is it worth the price tag? For the sports fan; without a doubt.
