Soccer Scores Pro has the most quickly updated real-time scores on the market. You can check out the entire lineup and all the stats and substitutions on every match right as they happen, so you don't have to miss a moment of the action.

3. Cricket

4. Golf

You have more than 35,000 courses at your disposal, so you can golf all the time when you've got nothing better to do or just want an escape.

Unlike the other apps, this one can be utilized during a game of field hockey to improve your team’s understanding of plays. Coaches can easily draw play diagrams on the screen while explaining expectations to the players.
While this could be useful for actual hockey teams, it could also be a lot of fun to study the sport, famous plays, and to show off your play-planning skills to friends. The next time your family is watching a field hockey tournament and a bad play is executed, take out this app and show your family what would have worked better.
Sports apps have really come into their own on smartphones. If you haven't got some sports apps, you're probably not getting your sports fix.
