the ESPN apps (scorecenter and the nokia ESPN app) only show 1 score at a time, at best. I also could only get it to show a score from 1 specific game at a time for only 1 of "my teams"
I would like to have a live tile on my start screen that updates/shows current live scores from games across many different sports (NBA, NFL, MLB, etc...)
it seems like a simple scoreboard app would be an easy idea for developers. but I am unable to find such an app.
I know there are various apps that allow you to pin current games to your start screen, but I want to remove the need to have to go find a game and then pin it. I would like to designate 1 live tile that will display the games for me.
please help if you know of an app that can satisfy my needs/wants. although I have tried seemingly every app on the app store :( thanks!

Try taking a look at the individual sport apps if there are a couple that you are heavily interested in. Until one of the larger players comes out with a better user experience...

The problem with a score tile is that you're not allowed to continually refresh the tile in real time. Push notifications would have to be utilized via dedicated servers. Without it, your scores become old and out dated. The best you could probably do would be to create a tile that would go straight to a scores page. In addition, your app has to get the data from somewhere... sport scores are typically delivered to developers for a "Premium" membership fee via api calls and then limited on top of that to how many times we can call them. Add in licensing issues with individual teams, and you risk a lot of development time/money for little return.
The idea of the tile is great, but it needs to be delivered by a big player like ESPN/ABC/CBS/FOX who have the ability to do it right...
