I didn’t think Apple needed to make a sports app, but now that they have, it’ll be my default. I agree with John Gruber’s post that being fast matters:

…the truth is ad tech, combined with poor programming, has made most sports apps slow to load. Most apps, period, really. Just being very fast to load ought not be a hugely differentiating factor in 2024, but it is.

Over the years I’ve used Yahoo Sports, ESPN, the NBA app, even just the Spurs app, and others. They’re fine, but Apple Sports is simpler and faster.
