Total Score: 26
Kentucky Sports Radio, the largest college sports site in America, allows you to view their articles, podcasts and live blogs on the go. This app is designed for Kentucky fans. It is biased – and happily so. As fans, you’ll keep up with all the latest recruitment news, local events and TV coverage info. The live blogs are particularly exciting as they bring you into the game experience which is thrilling, serious and occasionally silly. Just as an example, on signing day 22,000 fans were on the site waiting for the news of our latest recruits. Kentucky basketball fans are famously passionate and this app is just another way to feed their need for information.
Price Rating = 5 99 cents – free is better, but 99 cents is completely reasonable.
Ease of Use Rating = 5 Easy. The interface is intuitive and looking for information is easy.
Readability Rating = 4 Reasonable size font. Some of the text is a little small.
Will You Use It Rating = 5 If you are a fan you will likely use it often – at games or while watching TV.
Downsides Rating = -1 There is an ad banner at the bottom of the screen. It is unobtrusive.
Consumer Review Rating = 3 This app has over 100 ratings and many of the negative ratings were about an update with issues (now resolved.) I’ve been using this website since it was introduced and would give it a 5.
Why Do You Need This App Rating = 5 If you are a Kentucky fan you’ll use this app at least for every game and likely daily to keep up with news.
How does it work?
With this app you have four options.
- You can read articles. This is not a complex app. It is simple and easy to use. If active, the live blog provides you with up-to-the minute score information. If a live blog is in progress, it will likely be the top link.
- The second option is to see a list of authors. You may have someone whose blogs you enjoy and you want to read only his/her articles. This screen allows you to do that.
- The audio selection allows you to hear recent editions of the KSR radio show.
- The fourth selection is just for fun. You can sign in as a fan, or just say, “never mind” and see a map of the U.S., with push pins for the last 10 people who signed in.
