BBC Sport on a Nexus 7
The BBC have been busy working on their sport apps. The BBC Sport app has been released for the Kindle Fire and Kindle Fire HD, the app has sections for each different sport, live scores and news from the BBC Sport team.

Both the iOS and Android versions of the app have been updated, the updated apps can now be customised by adding links to your favourite football teams and all the sports get a new look. The Kindle Fire version is available from Amazon, the iOS version in the iTunes Store and the Android version in Google Play.

iPhone and Android app updates

We are also offering updates to the iPhone and Android smartphone apps, which will be automatically included in the Kindle Fire app at launch. These updates include access to numerous newly refreshed sports indexes – including athletics, boxing, cycling and snooker. We’ve done this using dynamic configuration (dyno config), which enables the editorial team to update and promote content (e.g. The Ashes) or add new indexes without users having to update their app.

In addition, we now offer iPhone and Android smartphone users the ability to add football teams, sports and nations to the ‘Quick Links’ section, which we know from user feedback is an often requested feature.

The app update also provided the perfect opportunity to make some general improvements, including design tweaks, fixing bugs and improving the speed of loading the apps.
