Smartphones have changed the world of sports forever. They give fans a personal and immediate way to connect with the game in larger-than-life ways.

Fans used to have to hope they could get tickets to their favorite game and then watch it in person, while also remembering all the seasonal scores and facts that could impact the future of their team.

That was a lot to handle, but now it's all one tap away. If you're trying to decide which sports apps will help you the most, check out the best eight ones of 2019. They're popular because they have everything you'll need to learn about and support your team, no matter which sport is your favorite.
