BBC Sport app updates for Kindle Fire, adds Quick Link shortcuts

The BBC has pushed out an update to its BBC Sport app, adding support for Amazon’s Kindle Fire tablets. 

Owners of both the Kindle Fire and the Kindle Fire HD tablets can now head over to the Amazon Appstore to download the free app which gives you live and on-demand video of sporting events as well as access to breaking stories from the BBC Sport newsdesk. 

Viewers will also be able to add custom Quick Links to the grey sidebar in the app. This lets you jump to coverage and stories on specific sports including football, rugby union, rugby league, cricket, tennis and Formula 1. 

BBC Sport app updates for Kindle Fire, adds Quick Link shortcuts

Already a feature of the BBC Sport app for iPhone, Quick Links are now available on the Android version of BBC Sport too. 

Lucie McLean, Executive Product Manager for Sport, BBC Future Media, said: “Launching the BBC Sport app for Kindle Fire devices, alongside a substantial update to our Android and iPhone apps, gives more people access to more of their favourite content on-the-go. 

“It’s been an exciting six months of sport and mobile has been a big part of our overall digital coverage. With lots of great sport still to come, we hope the new app and features will make it all even easier to follow wherever and whenever people want.”

Big sporting events have also been given more focus in the app, with events such as today’s third Ashes test at Old Trafford. 

Download BBC Sport for free at the iTunes App Store, Google Play or the Amazon Kindle Fire Appstore now.
