Bleacher Team Stream app review
So what is Bleacher and what is the Team Stream app? Bleacher Report is a website dedicated to team-specific sports content and real-time event coverage. The Team Stream app is its mobile offering and it certainly delivers on the promise. Bleacher is more well known in the United States but it’s coverage of global sports is not impeded by being an American offering. You can easily set this up for England Ashes updates, if you’re brave enough.
But the app is a lot more than just a mobile version of the main site, however good that is. The Team Stream app also boasts news and updates from a range of sources across the web, such as blogs and Twitter feeds of top players.
The app delivers breaking news and score update notifications. You’ll often find a lot of the notifications deliver genuinely fresh news updates almost as soon as it breaks on Twitter etc.
It’s fully integrated with Facebook and Twitter, which is pretty much a must-have for a team based sports app these days. But it works well and makes it easy to share updates with friends.
There are a couple of downsides perhaps, mainly around a lack of customisation, but what it lacks in customisation it makes up for in other areas of the app. Plus you can set the updates for your favourite teams so there it’s not like you get bombarded with news on a load of sports and teams you’re not interested in.
Bleacher Report Team Stream app download for iOS & Android
The Bleacher Team Stream app is available for all mobile and tablet devices, including Android & iOS. In terms of sports news app, this remains one of the best on the market to-date.
Reviews on Google Play are pretty well second to none in terms of quality and quantity – 4.5 star average from an astonishing 94,000 reviewers!
And now, the Team Steam app can be offered as an Apple iWatch compatible version. This works really well since the app is an update, stream-based service that sends little notifications to you – which ties in nicely with how you tend to use a smartwatch. It’s great for catching live scores as they happen.
