Mac users, rejoice. The zenith of sports is near; that part of the year when keeping track of scores in multiple sports is a challenge. Yet, the challenge spurs innovation.
Dashboard Widgets are back, baby. Back with a vengeance. Finally, there’s an easy, no click way to keep track of major sports scores from the confines your Mac’s screen.
No Click Scorekeeping
Sports score, by their very nature, were designed to be followed, tracked, and, like player stats, kept track of in real time. If it’s not baseball, it’s football, or hockey, or basketball.
It doesn’t matter if it’s college or pro. Must. Track. Scores.
Here’s the problem. If you’re on your Mac’s keyboard more hours a day than you like, how do you keep track of scores?
Well, there’s Yahoo! Sports or ESPN, but face it, they make you click and click and click to get the latest scores. Advertisers like it when you click again and again.
Sports Fan is a simple Mac Dashboard Widget which defies the status quo. Sports scores without a click. Setup your Dashboard so it displays when you move the mouse or trackpad pointer to a hot corner of your Mac’s screen.
Sports Fan Widget is so easy to use it’s embarrassing for Yahoo! and ESPN’s score display efforts.
Open the Widget, select your favorite sport, then select a favorite team. Uh oh. Just favorite teams? That’s not how sports work, right?
Sports Fan Widget doesn’t work that way, either. It will display your favorite team and other scores in that sport.
But the cool thing about many Dashboard Widgets is that you can open up a number of the same Widget at the same time. So, open Sports Fan, select a sport and team. Then repeat and open up Sports Fan again, choose a different sport and different team. Repeat as needed.
Then, just use the hot spot, no clicking, to get your score fix. But, if you must click, options abound, including more information and links to a team’s web site. Nicely done. And priced right, like God intended Dashboard Widgets. Free.
