theScore’s latest update delivers Today View widget and a great new NFL feature

Football fans! The Super Bowl is drawing closer, and theScore’s latest iOS update includes a neat new feature to help you stay on top of all the real-time gridiron action from your mobile device – as well as adding a much-requested Today View widget.

Firstly, we’ve made a subtle but important enhancement to our NFL box scores and scores index so we can now show you the precise position of each team on the field at any given moment. This field position indicator is updated by the second, providing you with a very cool visual aid to track the action as it unfolds.

This feature is part of our commitment to take sports fans on mobile beyond the box score, and follows a host of updates to our football coverage earlier in the season.

On top of this, we have also added a Today View widget, giving you instant access to scores and news from your favorite teams within iOS 8’s notification center. To add the widget:

  • Go to your notification center by swiping down from the top of your device screen
  • Select the ‘Today’ view
  • Hit ‘edit’ and add theScore

Update NOW from the App Store. NFL field position indicators will also be coming to Android soon.
