Univision Interactive Media, the digital arm of US-based Spanish-language broadcaster, Univision Communications, has launched a sports scoreboard app, called Univision Marcador, in the Apple App store. Designed for the iPhone and iPod touch, the free app is billed as providing real-time scores and stats of games and matches from top soccer leagues and other sports. According to Univision, it is the first in a series of apps targeted at sports enthusiasts that it plans to release for all the major smartphone and tablet platforms.

Univision says that the new app, which is available in both Spanish and English, delivers non-stop, customizable statistics updates that are automatically refreshed and that are in sync with the end-user's time zone. While the app currently provides only soccer updates, the company says that NBA coverage will launch shortly and that coverage of additional sports--including MLB and the NFL--will launch in the coming months.

The app was developed in partnership with mobile application platform company, July Systems, and is based on the latter's Mi Platform. Univision enumerates the app's key features as follows:

  • "Real-time scores and live game stats. For soccer, all goals, penalties, passes, fouls and more are available at users' fingertips;
  • "Calendars of top tournaments and leagues worldwide, including full coverage of all NFL teams and of top soccer leagues such as: Brasileirao, Bundesliga, Copa Libertadores, Copa Sudamericana, English Premier League, Italy's Serie A, the Mexican Soccer League, Spanish La Liga, and the UEFA Champions League, Copa America, Copa Oro and more; and
  • "Users can easily customize the app to provide one-click access to their favorite sports, leagues and teams."
