Other Comments

I think it's a shame this app doesn't have push notifications, as that will be a really nice feature. Also, since we are not currently in the football season, some of the app is limited. I will update this entry once the football season has started again and I have used the app a bit more.

It's great to see push notifications have now been added to this app. However, these will currently offer a challenge to VoiceOver users. Firstly, you need to register and login to enable these. The fields for entering your username and password are accessible, but the block below this is not, and unfortunately that's where you will find the links to create an account or reset your password. So, you will either need to get sighted help to access these or hope that you tap in the right place after disabling VoiceOver. Once logged in, you can enable and configure push notifications. The first part is accessible. However, fine-tuning notifications is less accessible, as the list of match events which you can receive notifications for does not provide any feedback to VoiceOver uses on its current selection status. Here's hoping that Sky will improve things in the next update! What's New in Version 2.0*We are aware that there are problems with team formations, we are currently working hard to resolve these issues and hope to have everything back to normal asap. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.* The latest update to Sky Sports Live Football Score Centre now includes:  
  • Push notifications for all of the major match events for your favourite team. This includes goals, red cards, penalties and more keeping you up to date with all of the action.
  • This version of the app now iPhone5 optimized.
  • Get a wider range of team formations in the team line-up section so you see how your team sets-up for the big match.
  • We’ve also taken the opportunity to fix a few minor bugs.

Lots or poorly labeled buttons in the latest update which have turned this into somewhat of a mess to understand and navigate.

It's a pity this app has got worse from a VoiceOver point of view. However if you want an app like this I would recommend you check out Forza Football. The app is very accessible, and has a notification centre widget and push notifications too.

does it also provide live commentary?

Submitted by Dave82 on Thursday, February 5, 2015

No commentary. It has limited text updates during games

Submitted by Usman on Thursday, February 5, 2015

Ahh, okay. I think I will forgo the app then since I'm looking for live commentary.
