theScore on Android now includes full Player Alerts for NBA, NHL, MLB and NFL

theScore’s latest update for Android includes the addition of a dream feature for fans of fantasy league sports – or anyone who just wants to stay in the know.

Player Alerts are now available for every player in the NFL, MLB, NBA and NHL leagues. All you have to do is select which players you want to follow, and you’ll then be notified in real time when they’re involved in a major play – like scoring a goal, making an assist, receiving a penalty. You’ll even be sent alerts about vital player news, such as injuries and whether they’re in tonight’s line-up or not.

Another new feature is the addition of the “Start-Up League” selector in the setting menu. This allows you to choose which league you want the app to go to as soon as you open it.

On top of that, we’ve also made some changes to the stats in our NBA section, which now provides full details in both landscape and portrait mode.
