SportsTap dubs themselves as “the ultimate mobile sports portal,” and they aren’t wrong.  SportsTap is far and away the best sports news app out there.  You can choose from all the major sports, or select Local Tap which will display all sporing events and news within 50, 100, or 200 miles of your current location.  For each sport, you can view the latest news and transactions, pictures, standings, league leaders, schedules, and top stories.  If the sport is in season, you can view the full slate of games for any day.  If the game has already happened, you can view the box score or play-by-play, full statistics, and a recap.  For upcoming games, you can view the Accuscore projections, a matchup of stats, and a written preview.  Bonus feature – favorite team notifications. SportsTap is a must download for sports fans, and will certainly keep you informed on everything from how many games in a row the Orioles have lost to when Brett Farve is going to (un)retire again.
