Sports scores, seriously? This would be a great app if they had any idea what breaking news is. Instead they post random stuff that isn't worthy of a breaking news app. Even worse, they will push these random alerts to your phone. One was actually about the natural death of an 84 year old man. I have complained about this before but the developers obviously don't care so I'll continue to give it one star every time they release an update.
