There’s no shortage of sports news apps in the Android marketplace. Enter Sports News, a plain-vanilla offering that does an admirable job of scraping and formatting the latest headlines, scores and sports-blogs postings right on your phone’s small screen.

The mobile web sites for ESPN, NBC Sports, Sky Sports and dozens of other sport  specialized news sites are this app’s primary sources of data. I found the content to be fresh, timely and rendered for easy reading. Scores were up to date (thanks, NBC), and I was especially glad to see seven popular sports blogs represented in the app.

Headlines and the latest news are available for NFL, MLB, NBA, NHL, soccer, college football, ND central, tennis, golf, motor sports, college hoops, Olympic sports, horse racing and many other sports. Don’t let the plain interface scare you away, Sports News sticks to its strengths, and is a welcome addition to any sports lover’s phone.
