The Official ESPN App is now in the Store


Finally, the long awaited ESPN App arrives in the Store! It took a long time coming since Microsoft demoed the App during the launch of Windows 8, and I have been keeping an eye on it since for its debut. As you can see it has already garnered 45 ratings at almost 5 Stars. The App comes packed as can be expected, and all you Sport Lovers around the world will appreciate the details put into this App. For a functional MX App, it comes in at almost 15Mb, then you know it comes with kitchen and sink. Here is how ESPN described the app from the Store:

    • I agree with 100% on your point. This is a test case for those bashing MS that you can’t produce any functional app with Metro design language.
      It shows that if Devs go the extra 9-yards, then can come back with something awesome.


  1. I really, really wish that there would be an ESPN 3 app. I love watching Cricket. US Cable doesn’t offer this. I use the Xbox 360 to stream Cricket matches on the TV, however I DO NOT want to pay the useless Gold fee for the “rights” to pay for Netflix and use otherwise free products, like YouTube and ESPN3.

    Would love an ESPN 3 app that had the Play To feature, so I could put it through the TV using the devices charm. I would cancel Xbox LIVE gold immediately if that happens.
