Rogers Sportsnet Launches New iOS App, Reflects ScoreDigital Investment

Sportsnet has announced the release of a completely redesigned Sportsnet Mobile iOS app for iPhone and iPad, available for free.

“The Sportsnet Mobile app is a must-have for all sports fans that need to access content on-the-go, putting information and entertainment at their fingertips,” said Pary Bell, Vice President and General Manager, Rogers Digital Media.

Sportsnet’s parent company is Rogers, which you may recall acquired ScoreMedia last October that also included a 10% share of ScoreDigital, makers of theScore mobile. This brand new Sportsnet app reflects that investment as it takes design cues from theScore mobile (white background vs black) but also offers more news articles from the Canadian Press. Take a look at the similarities below:

    It is the exact same thing. I am only using it because they have actual MLB logos, and no lights like theScore app. Picky, I know.

    A quick glance suggests this is simply a re-skinning of the Score Mobile app, the industry standard. The presentation is improved somewhat with stronger use of type.
    Not a deal-breaker at the end of the day, not sure how many converts it will win.
