Sprint Replaces NFL Mobile App With Sprint Football Live

Sprint today took the wraps off its replacement for the NFL Mobile app that it gave up last year to competitor Verizon Wireless. The new Sprint Football Live offers live information updates, but no live professional football games. The app will show a selection of live college games, including all seven Notre Dame home games. The app also includes a selection of live updated stats from ongoing games, fantasy league tools and streaming video clips. The app is available free with a data plan on most Sprint phones.

Been Out Forever

I dont know why Sprint is promoting this now, because the same day that Sprint lost NFL, they announced they had a new app Sprint Football Live, so that was months ago. I know this, because Ive had it on my BlackBerry since then.

Why are they promoting this NOW?

I'm sure it's just because it's the beginning of the football season.
I've had it since they released it but haven't used it in a while. I just accessed it and was instructed to update the software, changes have been made.
Pre-season just started this week and if I did not see Verizon's commercial at LEAST a hundred times over the past week... Sprint is wise to remind everyone that they still have an NFL app.

What's new

What's new is a college option that allows you to track your favorite college team just like it does for the pro teams.

It looks like a good addition to the app.

Can you delete it?

That's the real question.
more than likely not. probably built into the OS, may it can be hidden if needed, but from what I have heard the NFL app is pretty good, just as the Nascar one. thats the only thing my dad liked about Sprint and that was Nascar and being able to watch...
On non-smartphones (Exclaim, restore ect.) nine times out of ten you have to actually go and download it, which also makes it able to be uninstalled. Also in the smartphone range I know the blackberry can delete the app, but android and web OS can't. ...
