Sportening is a free sports news app for Android. Marketed as the app for true fans, Sportening lets you keep up to date with any news concerning your favourite sporting team. There is, however, one caveat; even though the app’s name is ‘Sportening’, and not Footballening, don’t expect to keep up with your favourite tennis stars or basketballers.
If you want to keep up with more than just football, give Vola Sports a try. Offering more than just football, you’ll be able to enjoy all sorts of live sports and converse with fellow enthusiasts. If you prefer cricket over any other sporting discipline, try Live Cricket TV: Star Sports TV for all your cricket news needs and more.
Read all about it
Sportening is primarily a news app specifically for anything going on in the world of European Football. As such, if your favourite team scores a goal, makes a trade, or loses a match, you’ll hear about it here. More than that, Sportening is essentially like a social media platform, but for all things European Football. Therefore, you can expect to read comments from fellow enthusiasts and deliver a few comments of your own.
‘The banter doesn’t stop when the pub closes.’ As this concise but highly evocative sentence suggests, a massive part of the European Football experience is the banter that goes on in various drinking establishments around Europe. The discussion feature of this app means that the banter never has to end. Communicate with scores of other football fans and supporters of rival teams without having to head to a drinking establishment.
Unfortunately, the most recent update to the app prior to the writing of this review left the app largely useless to many fans. Fans complain that since the last update, they can no longer find their favourite teams and are instead furnished with a choice of a team from a meagre pool of eight. Since the entire app revolves around keeping up with your favourite team, the inability to do so renders the app useless.
For the love of the game
If you’re a hardcore football fan and wish to make the level of your dedication to the game known to all, download Sportening. This app has many useful features to keep you up to date with all the latest news, developments, and scores in the European Football world.
However, there are a few issues with the app that may make you quit in frustration.
