The BBC Sports app, understandably requires a Wi-Fi or 3G connection to access content. The app is 2.3MB in size and supports devices running Android 2.2(Froyo) and above. Surprisingly there is no 10″ Tablet support, with the description stating that the app is only available for devices, 7″ and under, although hopefully this will be one of the new features listed as future upgrades. Check the app out now in Google Play.[app]bbc.mobile.sport.ww[/app]
