The app's home page also has a new "Scores" section, and it shows each night's games, with your favorite teams listed up top. If you click on a particular game, you see a news story that summarizes the match up. For example, I pulled up the Patriots versus Jaguars game on September 27, and a CBS Sports story previewed the game. (Fancred likely has some sort of deal with CBS, because it provides all of the game summaries.) However, in-depth stories aren't available through the Scores feed, though you can click on stories posted by other people.
Fancred has many unique features and a sleek user interface, and the app could potentially replace Facebook or Twitter for some fans, if it integrates more news sources, fantasy sports and ecommerce options.
