Scores Widget


Scores Widget was designed to be a non-intrusive way to get real time score updates for your favorite teams. Just turn on your phone and the latest scores will be waiting on your home screen, no clicks or additional steps needed. You can even have the widget speak score updates to you so you don’t need to constantly check your phone.

*** DO NOT ask for new leagues. All the leagues at my disposal are already included. ***

If you enjoy the widget, please support us by giving a good rating. This will help keep it going.

The Best Because... The developer listens to the app users and in turn this app keeps getting better and better. Oh, and I just love my sports teams appearing in a widget on my home screens! Now I can even see what their record is, just incredible, absolutely incredible!

Best app I've ever downloaded Literally the best app/widget around. The updating is accurate and quick. Does exactly what it says it does. The developer is constantly trying to improve it in ways that the consumer actively needs/wants. Fantastic job! For trending games it would be neat to select a division or conference.

Very nice, need one small addon Best scores widget out there bar none. The only thing it needs to get 5 stars is have a better customizable behavior on clicks. It would be nice if you could make it open a specific web page on clicks. Also when you're using the "Yahoo Sports Game Page", it should open the games boxscore page instead of the home team's yahoo page. Also every dsy I need to reboot my phone because it stops refreshing. Even when I try manually.
