Reuters Sports Reel: Live Sports Highlights In Pictures [Review]

Reuters Sports Reel sends you photos as they are taken from some of the biggest sporting events captured by some of the world’s most impressive photographers. This also makes it an excellent tool for keeping up with the latest scores and more, especially when it comes to the World Cup.

Only 4 events are covered, but every match of the World Cup is covered

Sports Reel is about as straight forward as an app can get. Currently, there are four events shown on the home screen: FIFA World Cup Brazil, Tour de France, F1 Hungarian GP and US Open Tennis. As only one is currently taking place right now your choice on what to see is simple (although, you can see pictures from previous years).

Even though the number of events is small, the coverage of the World Cup is pretty complete. Every match in the World Cup is listed, which means you can view all the images from matches from the past days, see images and scores for a live match come in and see a count down to an upcoming match.

Additionally, in the case of the World Cup you can have notifications of new scores and images sent to you by selecting a team to follow or specific matches to follow as well.

I like Reuters Sports Reel because the images are high quality, they are sent in real-time and they highlight the events well. However, there is one problem–images viewed through the Today tab crashed the app repeatedly on my iPhone. I imagine this will be fixed in an update, but until then I have to scroll to find today’s matches.

Each match has a lot of pictures and each has a brief description for some context
