No matter whether you’re a sporty type or not, chances are you’ve heard of ‘Sports Illustrated’, a US-based sports media magazine. This magazine has over 3 million subscribers, and is read by 23 million people each week, at least according to Wikipedia’s latest info. This company is owned by Time Inc., and needless to say, it’s quite popular in the US. That being said, Sports Illustrated has been around for a long time, the first issue of this magazine was published way back in 1954, and in case you’re into sports (that are played in the US) and love Sports Illustrated, you might be interested in their official Android app as well, read on.
First and foremost, it is worth mentioning that this app has been developed by TI Media Solutions Inc., a company behind tons of similar apps to this one, this company had released the Time Mobile, TIME Edge, LIFE VR… and a number of other applications thus far. Anyhow, the Sports Illustrated application is well-designed, its UI is easy to navigate, and it looks really nice and flat. Now, other than articles you can read through this app, you can also select various sports teams that you’d like to follow, and the app will also function as a live score app, it will notify you how once the game starts, and how your team is doing at a particular moment in the game (you’ll get update after the 1st quarter is done, for example), while you’ll also get team news from time to time. As it’s usually the case with Sports Illustrated, you’ll have access to the expert analysis by Peter King, Lee Jenkins, Tom Verducci, etc. In addition to all that, you also get various video reports and all sorts of other content here.
Now, you might notice that this app is not exactly receiving great ratings in the Google Play Store, and most of those complaints are pointed at pop-ups and general performance of the app. Now, we can see why that might be the case, though it seems to be better than you might think after reading such reviews. In any case, if you’re interested in checking out this app, it might be wise to take a look at the gallery down below, and also the embedded video, which will give you a better idea of what’s coming.
