BBC Sport app launches on Android phones, includes support for 7-inch tablets

If you're familiar with the iOS version, BBC's new sports app for Android might not pack that many surprises. But it does still house a substantial amount of sports news, with a focus on the UK's national game, football. There's a new section encompassing fixtures, results and updating live scores for each competition and league. There's also live text commentaries on major sports events, plus both clips and video streaming. The app, available today, is compatible with Android devices running version 2.2 or above and while the Beeb has worked to ensure it works on the recent wave of 7-inch tablets, it doesn't currently support larger sizes. Still, there's plenty of time for that to happen before the next World Cup. We've added in a shot of its testing device pile (look, a HTC ChaCha!) after the break.
