In light of its peerless versatility, it is only natural that Team Stream allows you to follow live scores – providing in-detail descriptions of the unfolding events -, keeps you updated with schedules, standings and stats, and delivers news alert notifications for breaking stories so that you’ll be first to know when a big trade or a landscape-changing free agent signing goes down.
After singing all of Team Stream’s praises, let’s take a trip to the dark side and look at its few, though very much existing negatives. First and foremost, the design is nothing spectacular, to say the least. It embodies the triumph of function over flashiness, but the overuse of gray makes it a tad too bleak for our liking. Despite the home screen being almost top-to-bottom customizable, that almost leaves just enough room for Team Stream to bombard you with unwanted stories often unrelated to your interests – but we’re being really picky here, and that’s only a minor inconvenience at worst. What is more bugging is that Team Stream has a tendency to shove way too much Twitter and Instagram content in your face, which results in articles getting lost in the flood of tweets and meant-to-be-hilarious videos you’ll most definitely come across on Facebook anyway. We could dig up a cavalcade of unique malfunctions other users have reported to further prove that Team Stream is not perfect, but nothing is, and its positives easily outweigh its negatives, making it a slam dunk, a homerun, a touchdown and a goal all merged into one app.
