An update has arrived for ESPN's iOS app (Formerly 'ESPN SportsCenter'), bringing in further device support, a redesign, and the introduction of ESPN Now.
The app now takes advantage of the bigger iPad screen, with scores and news displayed at the same time. iPhone 6 and 6 Plus owners will also be happy to hear that the app has been adapted to make full use of their bigger displays. The addition of ESPN Now, meanwhile, allows users to swipe to the right to access photos, videos, and social media content from ESPN. The cricket fans out there (insert obligatory 'C'mon England!' comment here) will also find that support for the upcoming Cricket World Cup has been added, bringing in video clips and scores from the 50 over contest to the app.
The updated ESPN app is available to download now for free.
Vivid Games' iOS boxing title, Real Boxing, has reached its two year anniversary on the App Store, and to celebrate the developers have decided to update the game with new features, visuals, and a new mode. The new single-player Arcade Mode challenges players to fight over 15 increasingly difficult stages, with otherworldly boss battles to fight and a unique set of rewards to gain along the way.
Alongside this new game mode, players will also find that Real Boxing now has power-ups and a new statistic called 'Condition', which the developers claim will make leading your fighter to victory more realistic. In addition to this, the game now boasts enhanced visuals, animations, and effects.
Real Boxing is available to download for free from the App Store.
Football Manager Handheld 2015, by SEGA and Sports Interactive, is the latest in the best-selling Football Manager series on iOS.
The app has a bunch of new features that give it the edge over previous games. The new 2D Match Engine allows managers to better analyse their team's performance on the field, and the Scouting Agency allows them to look at, and monitor, a ranked list of the top 50 players.
Football Manager Handheld 2015 also has an updated ‘My Club’ Mode. Now you can create a club and populate the squad with a selection of real or fictional players. Each member of the squad can be assigned a Player Role. You also have access to more detailed club stats that give you seasonal and historical information.
There are some new World Rankings, for both international teams and national leagues. These rankings evolve over time based on performance. As you win and collect trophies you can get achievements to show off on your Manager Achievements Page.
There are a ton of other improvements as well. You can check them all out by downloading Football Manager Handheld 2015, which is available on the App Store now for $9.99.
