The *Spark home screen application for Android devices has been updated with a new sports module. Users in the USA can now see sports scores from major American football, baseball, basketball and hockey fixtures, while European users will have cricket and football results available in a couple of weeks.
*Spark creates a new home screen for Android devices with easier access to social networking along with news, entertainment and weather updates. It’s also the only official mobile partner of Groupon in the UK, offering targeted local discounts.
Mark Anderson, CEO of HipLogic - the company behind the app - said “*Spark is the fastest way for people to find scores from US and international sporting events as they are happening. *Spark’s ability to deliver sports scores in real-time to your phonetop means that fans everywhere will be able to follow every point, goal and score across multiple sports leagues without having to open a web browser or app.”
As well as delivering live results, the *Spark Sports Module will feature sports news provided by CBS. The service integrates with social networks, enabling users to share and comment on games via Facebook, Twitter or SMS.
