BBC Sport app

BBC Sport's mobile app is set to pass through two million worldwide downloads this weekend with the football season about to get into full swing.

The app, which has a new feature allowing users to customise quick links, is available from Google Play for Android devices, the Apple App Store for iPhones, and the UK Amazon Kindle Fire Appstore.

It makes it easier to follow BBC Sport's coverage on the move via mobile and tablet.

The app was launched in January and passed one million UK downloads shortly after.

Key features of the app include:

  • Home screen displaying the top stories across the world of sport
  • Follow all the football live scores, results and news - plus access your club's fixtures for the 2013-14 season
  • Customise the app to select your favourite sports and football teams
  • Watch major sporting events live or on catch up with on-demand highlights and interviews
  • Sections for Football, Formula 1, Cricket, Rugby Union, Rugby League, Tennis, Golf and all the other main sports
  • Indexes for UK nations, plus major events
  • Daily live text commentaries
  • Dedicated pages for every English and Scottish football league club, plus pages for cricket counties, rugby teams and more
  • Share stories and results by email and on social networks
