You’ve got your snacks, right? Well, How about downloading some apps to improve your viewing experience? Here are some recommendations.
Unsurprisingly, the official NFL app is the perfect place to start. You can read up on all the latest stories about your favorite teams, track league and team leaders across multiple statistical categories, as well as watch various clips.
If you’re a Verizon customer, you can even watch the Super Bowl live from your phone.
theScore is not only a great way to follow the NFL, but it’s ideal for numerous other sporting leagues too, such as NCAA Football, MLB, NBA, and NHL.
The app offers real time coverage, with push notifications keeping you in the loop all the time, and you can set up individual player alerts too.
For those after another official source, ESPN is a pretty good place to go. The app offers you up to the minute scores, the latest news, live video, as well as audio streaming from across ESPN’s networks.
You’ll need to be with a relevant cable provider for some of these services, but if you are, you’ll never be far from the action. There are over 100 podcasts to listen to as well.
Fancred is a social networking app that’s ideal for sports fans. Besides offering live streaming and instant scores, you can easily connect and chat with other fans.
You can hang out in Team Feed sections, deconstructing each play, or you can watch a live stream and chip in with a comment as and when you feel like it. It’s the ideal way of feeling like you’re in a Sports bar, while still in the comfort of your own home.
