The sports programmer said the ESPN College Football app, previously called ESPN Bowl Bound, was built from scratch for both Android and Apple iOS devices.
The new app provides video-clip highlights of key plays from select games within a minute of the live action on the field; alerts for scoring plays, potential upsets and breaking news; customizable scoreboards; and access to live games on the programmer's WatchESPN "TV Everywhere" video service. The app also is designed to keep college gridiron fans connected year-round with news, video and alerts for all 124 of the NCAA's Division I Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) schools.
"We think the responsiveness and in-progress elements of the app will deliver a unique and indispensable game-day experience for college football fans," Jay Lee, senior director of product development for ESPN Digital Media, said in a statement. "We've also combined the unmatched depth of ESPN's college football content across platforms with highly customizable features to keep fans informed and engaged 24/7 year-round, not just on game days."
