Horse Racing News App is Big News
 By FloridaCowgirl   •   3rd Sep 2011   •   4,119 views   •   5 comments
Horse Racing News AppBrian8701 has an app out that's simply called Horse Racing News that's got the deceptively simple tag as an app to read horse racing news and info. This app has been downloaded more than half a million times and sits with a solid five-star rating. On top of its amazing credentials, the app's free so it was a must-try for this horse racing lover.

How It Works
It would absolutely take pages to discuss every feature that this app has so for the sake of saving a ton of space, we'll just discuss the main couple of pages. The opening page lists various news sources such as ESPN, Bloodhorse, Fox Sports, BBC, Big NEWS Network and the Racing Post. These are just a few; there are 11 major news sources listed just on the this page for you to choose from.

When you choose one of the news sites, it takes you to a page that lists the relevant horse racing articles starting with the most current. Each article has the headline and the description of the article, as well as the date. You just pick your article and it takes you straight to it.

Across the top of the home page of the Horse Racing News App there are six tabs; News, NTRA (National Thoroughbred Racing News), Breeders' Cup, Articles, Others and Favorites. Each of these tabs takes you to a different menu. For instance, the Breeders' Cup tab takes you to a menu that includes World Championships, Breeders' Cup Challenge, Braded Racing and Point Standings. These of course take you to the appropriate sites. All this and the app only takes up 468KB.

Review
There just aren't enough good things to say about this app. If you're a person that likes to keep up with the world of horse racing, then you're not going to find a better app for it. All of the major publications are covered and the app breaks it down into areas of interest for you so that you don't have to dig for information. If you're looking for trainer news, it's right there. Same with every other topic that you may be looking for.

The app runs smoothly on a Nexus S and it doesn't take up much space. The graphics are great and the buttons are clear, large enough to be easy to touch and they are nicely organized. There doesn't seem to be any down side to the Horse Racing News app and if possible it would get ten stars. Instead, it gets the full five along with a huge thumbs up. One of the best free apps that you'll find.
